André 3000 // Ninety Three ‘Til Infinity and Beyoncé
We didn’t have it on our 2023 bingo card, but Outkast icon André 3000 has dropped a flute-heavy instrumental album this week. The song titles alone on New Blue Sun pack some enviable lyrical heft, with this cut extending a nod to a 90s’ rap classic and, well, Beyoncé.

The Smile // Wall of Eyes
The Smile have announced their new album of the same name with ‘Wall Of Eyes’. The track boasts a mesmeric fusion of simultaneous tempos and arrives with a video courtesy of multi-Academy Award nominee Paul Thomas Anderson.

Snow Strippers // Just Your Doll
Just about every genre from the last three decades have left traces on Snow Strippers’ sound, and the intoxicating ‘Just Your Doll’ is our first first preview of forthcoming EP, Night Killaz Vol.1.

Lime Garden // I Want To Be You
The charming ‘I Want To Be You’ showcases the more mellow side of Lime Garden’s songwriting, with the band’s long-awaited debut album One More Thing arriving in February.

VLURE // Heaven Sent
Boundless euphoria juxtaposes Hamish Hutchinson’s grizzled delivery to make ‘Heaven Sent’ a transformative listen. Check out VLURE’s headline set at London’s historic 100 Club on 4th Dec.

Monjola // WOOWOO
‘WOOWOO’ sees Monjola’s soulful vocal colluding with irresistible breaks on a life-affirming single. The Dublin artist is currently touring with Kojaque, with his debut EP arriving next month.
