So I’m back in lovely Manchester now, after four days in sunny Spain. The weather rarely dropped below 30 degrees and I didn’t get burnt – this is a pretty big deal for me, guys. Anyway, now I’m back it’s business as usual. Here are my five things you should be listening to this weekend.
Mac Demarco – The Way You’d Love Her
Everyone’s favourite slacker, Mac Demarco, has a new, eight song “mini EP” coming out on 7th August, called Another One, featuring this track. The Way You’d Love Her is a typical Mac Demarco tune, which is a huge compliment in my book. Just check out the awesome guitar solo midway through.
Jamie xx – I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) (Feat. Young Thug & Popcaan)
Jamie xx dropped another new track from his upcoming album, In Colour, this week, featuring Young Thug and Popcaan. I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) is an unusual collaboration, but I’m already a big fan of the song. It’s still got that signature Jamie xx sound, but the addition of Young Thug and Popcaan brings a new level to the track, and the soulful sample which runs throughout is just bloody lovely.
Kehlani – The Way (Feat. Chance the Rapper)
The Way isn’t the first time Kehlani has collaborated with Chance the Rapper, she provided vocals for Lady Friend, a track from Chance the Rapper & The Social Experiment‘s Surf last year. The pair seem to be a match made in heaven, so hopefully we’ll see some more collaborations in the future from them.
Tame Impala – Eventually
I know I’ve been posting a fair bit of Tame Impala recently, but they keep releasing amazing songs from their upcoming album, and I just can’t resist sharing them. Eventually is, according to a post on Instagram, the “last one before the album”, so now all we have to do is sit back and wait for what is set to be an incredible collection of music.
Lóbo – Day Off
I don’t know much about Lóbo, apart from that he’s from London and his name is Jacob. Also, apparently Lóbo means wolf in Spanish and Portuguese, which is a little throwback to his Portuguese ancestry. Anyway, Day Off seemed like the perfect track to end this post with, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
