IN THIS PHOTO: Grizzly Bear

truly awesome new music. LCD Soundsystem are back from the wilderness and bring us TWO new tracks – Call the Police is the one I have included here. Not only that, but there are hot-off-the-press cuts from Grizzly Bear, HAIM and Kasabian. It is a typically varied and full list of music’s newest songs. I have been fascinated by artists like LCD Soundsystem: indicative of music’s ability to surprise and confound in equal measures. The weather is, kind of, getting brighter but fear not: music is at hand to bring all the sunshine, warmth and excitement required. Listen to the first edition of The May Playlist and all the spring-time goodness it tantalises.

Let’s hope music continues to produce those off-the-wall and unexpected treats. I am delighted those big acts like Grizzly Bear can come from the blue and pull a fantastic track out the bag – the same can be said for LCD Soundsystem. It, already, promises to be a great month for music and that blend of mainstream heavyweights and underground diamonds. Keep, as usual, your ears and eyes peeled and what comes next. One thing is for sure: it is not going to be boring at all…not for a single second!
