The Glastonbury lineup was announced this week, so that has been pretty much all I’ve been able to think about since. While there’s obviously a lot more to Glastonbury than just the music, the lineup is looking pretty damn good so far this year – and before you ask, yes, I will be going to see Kanye West headline the Pyramid Stage.
But alas, there are still a couple of months to go until I’m back on Worthy Farm. Until then, I’ll just keep on as usual, sharing some great new music with you all. Here are my five things you should be listening to this weekend.
Chronixx – Here Comes Trouble
OK, so I know I said I was going to carry on as usual, but I just couldn’t help myself. I was pretty hyped to see Chronixx featured on the Glastonbury line-up, so thought I’d share one of his better known tracks, Here Comes Trouble. Summer vibes.
Mura Masa – Firefly (Feat. Nao)
I’ve covered both Mura Masa and Nao in previous editions of post, so was pretty excited to see them collaborating. Firefly is easily my favourite track from Mura Masa’s EP, Someday Somewhere – although the entire EP is worth a listen and features a range of up and coming British artists.
Ratatat – Cream on Chrome
Ratatat’s last album was five years ago now, but they haven’t lost their touch. They released Cream on Chrome shortly before their Coachella set, and we can assume/hope this will be featured on their next album, which will no doubt be majorly chill.
Vic Mensa – U Mad (Feat. Kanye West)
Vic Mensa featured on one of Kanye West’s recent tracks, Wolves, and it seems Kanye has now returned the favour. U Mad shows Vic Mensa absolutely dripping with confidence, which is understandable when he’s dropping tracks like this. An absolute banger.
Tyler, The Creator – Fucking Young / Perfect
Fucking Young / Perfect is a track from Tyler, The Creator’s fourth album, Cherry Bomb, and shows a different side to what we usually expect from the rapper. It also features some guest vocals from Charlie Wilson, which is never a bad thing.
