as it is quite a heavy and well-stocked week for music. After a fallow week (a little while back); it seems the quality is going up and up – as we head towards September. This week; brand-new cuts from LCD Soundsystem and Anna of the North; videos from Lucy Rose and album tracks from the likes of Ghostpoet and Everything Everything.

Among all that are new offerings from Miley Cyrus and P!nk; some terrific sounds of Grizzly Bear and Weezer – and so much more for one to get their teeth into…

An assured and proud selection of stunning songs – from all corners of the music world. I am encouraged there is a raft of big tunes and incredible offerings; so many different sounds to while the evenings away.

Let’s hope next week’s selection of musical gems are as glistening and valuable (as this week). I will be keeping an eye and, rest assured, collecting them all together for another installment of The August Playlist.

IT is very much back to business after a week…

of relative calm. That sounds insulting to the artists that released music (last week) but it is not meant to be!

The fact this week sees new music from Queens of the Stone Age, The National and Skepta makes it a very exciting one. Throw in Jessie J, Liam Gallagher and Daughter and it makes it VERY hot.

Oh…and you can add an unexpected revelation from Tori Amos – she is back and, listening to the new song, Up the Creek, anything but. Stefflon Don and The Shins provide music and there are album tracks from RAT BOY, The Cribs and The Districts.

It is a full, fresh and fearsome selection of musical vintage – incredible tracks to kick-start the weekend – in the best way possible!

Such a treat to hear Tori Amos back with a cracking new song!

It is a fantastic week for music and a real clash of brand-new artists and some established legends. Who knows, as the nights draw in, what the world of music will provide?! I am stoked keeping those peepers peeled and the mind primed.

Make sure you check online but, as always, I will ensure the next August Playlist has all the juiciest and finest selections from the world of music.

THAT title might seem confusing and cruel…

Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling, dog

IN THIS PHOTO: Girl Ray/PHOTO CREDIT: Tommo

but it is a reflection on the fact this week, whilst not marked by a notable standout track, there are lots of fantastic songs out. Everything Everything have released Desire. It follows the fantastic Can’t Do and shows they are truly hitting their absolute height. There are new videos from Lorde, Jessie Ware and Glass Animal; some great songs from Fickle Friends, Tired Lion and Adore Delano – and an album track from Girl Ray.

There are, yeah, no huge bangers or unexpected anthems but that is doing a disservice to the solid and varied collection of songs that have arrived throughout the week. Who knows what the next few days will produce?!

It is safe to say there will some truly wonderful and unexpected joys…

Despite the fact there are no obvious huge tunes: there are a collection of wonderful songs. It is a great Playlist that stuffs the finest of the mainstream with those songs one might not easily stumble upon. I feel the next few weeks will start to produce some rumbles of genius – albums that come out of nowhere, perhaps. Keep altert because, as we know, music is so unpredictable and unsurprising. I am going to be alert and will make sure I bring all the fresh and best this time next week.
