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.

Vol. 5: What to Wear After Midnight

_______

IT is with great pleasure and gusto I announce the return of Jessie Ware.

Image may contain: 13 people, people smiling, crowd

IN THIS PHOTO: YOWL

Well, perhaps ‘return’ is not quite the right word – she released the album, Tough Love, in 2014 and has been formulating new music. Midnight is the new song – and catalyst for this feature’s title – and shows she is as good as ever. Aside from Ware; there are fabulous new cuts from Tori Amos, Belle & Sebastian and, inexplicably, a certain Sir Mick Jagger – he has another track with Skepta but I have included Gotta Get a Grip, instead.

Wolf Alice have released the video for Yuk Foo – and Charli XCX has released Boys’ video. It is another busy and eclectic Playlist that showcases the variegation and prolificacy of quality music…

What a collection and collation of new tunes – I must say that every Playlist! I am glad Jessie Ware has new material out as I did not know whether she was working on an album. Midnight is her at her peak: a great track that signals more to come. Mick Jagger shows there is life away from The Rolling Stones – a confident and compelling song from him! The best of Pop have stepped forward and I am pleased to see the video for Wolf Alice’s Yuk Foo – they are one of the hopes for Rock/Indie and a band we should keep our eyes out for. Let’s hope they produce another album before 2017.

Let us make a plea to the world of music – that it will continue to reign fantastic music out way because, as we see this week, there is ample stock for a fantastic edition of The July Playlist…

the previews/reviews for Arcade Fire’s latest album, Everything Now. It is, in fact, getting five-star rave and (it is) something that will be on my mind when it arrives (on Friday). It could well steam ahead as the best album of 2017 – and might well stay there should something monumental arrive afterwards. This week is not exactly shabby, to be honest.

Among the eighty-or-so songs in the pack; there are album cuts from Declan McKenna, Lana Del Rey and Dizzee Rascal. Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbot have a new record out; chart hits are flowing and there are fresh singles from Milk Teeth, The Horrors and Broken Social Scene – and the wonder that is Skott.

It is a tasty, varied and fantastic collection of music morsels from the finest artists around…

It is a great week for music – not that it shouldn’t have been – but I am glad to see some hyped albums actually living up to the chatter. Declan McKenna and Lana Del Rey have unveiled two terrific, if varied, albums and got people talking. I have seen a lot of great songs from the underground come through – tried to capture them here – and big names providing incredible singles.

Let’s hope this continues into next week and, oh yeah

Did I mention Arcade Fire are releasing an album?!

then it is not intended to be. I am excited bringing together new tracks by Lana Del Rey (joined by A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carti) and Arcade Fire. AlunaGeorge are on fire; ALVVAYS and Nine Inch Nails are not exactly sitting on their hands.

In addition to all the big-name releases; there are some great albums out this week. I have been looking at all the mainstream and underground releases from music…

It is an assuredly confident and prosperous week for music. Make sure you ingratiate yourself with the full spread of awesome sounds, incredible singles and hot-off-the-press videos…

I guess Arcade Fire’s new single is the most exciting release of the week. There are some other great songs but it seems the Canadian band is in the form of their life. I am excited to hear more from them but have been impressed by the sheer volume and quality of new music this week. As we head into summer, the standard is really starting to shoot up.

I shall keep my ears open and see what the next week provides. If this week’s instalment is anything to go by; it will be a huge and memorable collection of new music.

Vol. 2: Deleted Kisses and the Freakshow

PERHAPS not as crammed with big artists…

IN THIS PHOTO: Ghostpoet

as previous Playlists: this edition does, at least, feature two remarkable songs. Wolf Alice show their new direction with Don’t Delete the Kisses. It shows a more melodic side to the London band – not quite as intense and raw as their 2015 album, My Love Is Cool. A new album is approaching and the band get mouths salivating with a stunning track.

Similarly, Ghostpoet provides us with Freakshow: perhaps, his finest song to date. It follows Immigrant Boogie and is the latest track from his forthcoming album – which is, as-yet, untitled.

Kesha and AlunaGeorge have been busy and rustled pretty incredible songs. If that were not enough; the fabulous Dizzee Rascal unveils Wot U Gonna Do? Let’s hope he is bringing out a new album soon as the music world needs his observational and extraordinary lyrics.

A really great selection of songs this week – good to see Dizzee Rascal progress and promise future-gold! Wolf Alice have got tongues wagging and it seems like things are looking good for Ghostpoet. The rest of music has not been idle. There are plenty of stunning songs about and a whole variety of sounds and genres.

I am excited about the coming weeks and what is approaching. New albums from Lucy Rose and This Is the Kit is out; HAIM’s Something to Tell You is out and gathering rave reviews.

A brilliant week for music: one that suggests July will be a pretty hot one.
