The April Playlist kick-off a day of (potential) japes and pranks with a serious dose of wonderful music. Some of the biggest-hitting artists have opened the month with some incredible, hugely explosive tracks. Aside from thick slabs from IDLES and Kasabian there are tasty offerings from Kendrick Lamaralt-J and Goldfrapp. Another typically bountiful and blessed collection of songs: enough for anyone to get addicted. Away from the cool and credible songs are a few cheesy snippets from the mainstream: great Urban tracks and some blood-rushing Electronic bangers. It is a veritable pick ‘n’ mix of audio gems that promises to get the weekend off to a memorable start!

I am assured and joyed by the music that is kicking April into gear. I am glad alt-J have new music and are proving themselves one of the most consistent and fascinating acts in British music. Of course, there are some toothsome cuts of Rock from the likes of IDLES; songs and musical moments that will keep all music listeners interested and satisfied – no matter how picky your tastes are! Keep, as I say, your ears peeled and prepare for loads more cracking songs throughout April. As the days get longer and warmer; the array and quality of music emerging is extraordinary. I will remain vigilant and be sure to provide another jam-packed April Playlist this time next week.
