Vol. 4: “I’ve Got to Admit It’s Getting Better…”

_______

THIS is an odd week for music for a few different reasons…

For one, there is new music from the likes of The Amazons, The Charlatans and alt-J: fantastic tunes from some of Pop’s best and some underground nuggets. Alongside that is the big event: the fiftieth anniversary of The BeatlesSgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

We are seeing a legendary album share shelf space with brand-new records from some of our brightest young artists. I take tracks from Rita Ora, Bleachers and Dave and sprinkle in plenty of colour, spice and variety. It is another busy and surprising May Playlist

It is weird getting a chance to (legitimately) include a track from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Alongside the 1960s brilliance, I have been drinking in the best new music and underground treasures. Let’s hope – as the weather REALLY hots up – music keeps giving us so many treats and unexpected offerings.
