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.
