Allow one of the most persistent creators in the game – Manilla-born, LA-dwelling EYEDRESS – to supply the closing motif to your week of romance. ‘MRS. VALENTINE’ is the first track to be lifted from EYEDRESS’ upcoming mixtape, set for release this year.

Waxahatchee // Bored
Ahead of new album Tigers Blood arriving in March, ‘Bored’ sees Waxahatchee foregoing her familiarly wistful songwriting for a more confrontational brand of country-rock.

Goat Girl // ride around
Goat Girl have returned with news of a new album, and the UK music scene is already better for it. ‘ride around’ takes the trio on a hallucinatory tour of South London.

RiTchie // RiTchie Valens
More familiar to us as 1/3 of Injury Reserve and 1/2 of By Storm, Nathaniel Ritchie has unveiled his new RiTchie project with one of the more surprising shout-outs you’re going to hear this week. Greatness recognises greatness.

Elkka // Make Me
Cardiff-born producer Elkka evokes euphoria and queer sensuality for ‘Make Me’, a mouth-watering taster of her forthcoming album Prism of Pleasure.

jerry // time is measured
Hodgy Beats, of the game-changing collective Odd Future, has unveiled his new lovemesooner LP under the jerry monikor. Created alongside Leland and Chester of BADBADNOTGOOD and JD. Reid, lovemesooner is an endearingly collection of stripped-back tracks: well worth checking out.
