This time next week I’ll be back in Glastonbury, one of the most wonderful places on earth, and I couldn’t be more hyped. However, that means I won’t be posting on here next week, as I’ll obviously be busy getting up to all sorts of shenanigans off the grid. Anyway, not to worry, I’ve got some great new music lined up for you today to make up for it.
Here are my five things you should be listening to this weekend.
Chet Faker – Bend
I’ve been a fan of Chet Faker for a while now – in fact, I featured him on my very first five things you should be listening to. He’s also playing at Glastonbury, so it only felt right to kick things off with him. Bend isn’t technically a new track, it was actually meant to feature on Built On Glass, but didn’t make the final cut. I’ve no idea why, because it’s bloody great. But it’s released now, and I’ll hopefully be seeing him live next week, and that’s all that matters.
Miguel – …goingtohell
Miguel‘s second album, Wildheart, is set to drop on 29th June, and earlier this week he released a handful of tracks from the upcoming record – …goingtohell, FLESH, and face the sun (which features none other than Lenny Kravitz). You just know once this album comes out, it’ll be forming the soundtrack to thousands of steamy nights all around the world.
Mac Demarco – Another One
This week also saw Mac Demarco release the official video for Another One, the title track from his upcoming mini-album, Another One. The video is low-fi and weird and everything we love about Mac, featuring him giving us his best Micheal Jackson impression and playing his keyboard in the ocean.
Tom Misch – Sunshine
Another week, another new track from Tom Misch – this guy definitely keeps himself busy! Sunshine is a fitting name for this track, which is guaranteed to brighten up even the gloomiest of days.
Toro Y Moi – room for 1zone
It’s only been a matter of weeks since What For?, the latest album from Toro Y Moi was released, and he’s already creating new music. room for 1zone is a big step away from previous tracks, but only goes to show Chaz Bundick’s talent and versatility.
