video still from ScHoolboy Q - Bluesides

ScHoolboy Q // Blueslides
Shared this week alongside ‘Back in Love‘, ‘Bluesides’ addresses ScHoolboy Q’s recent absence to a smokey, minimalist piano track. New album Blue Lips lands next month.

Mount Kimbie // Fishbrain
Mount Kimbie continue their foray into 90s-inspired shoegaze with the beguiling ‘Fishbrain’. Forthcoming album The Sunset Violent is going to be worth the wait.

I. JORDAN // Real Hot n Naughty (ft. Felix Mufti)
With their long-awaited debut album arriving in May, I. JORDAN has shared the unshakeably good vibes of ‘Real Hot n Naughty’, featuring guest vocals from Sex Education‘s very own Felix Mufti.

Erika de Casier // ice (ft. They Hate Change)
Portuguese-born, Denmark-raised songwriter/producer Erika de Casier has teamed up with They Hate Change for the aptly-named chillest new track of the week.

Mk.gee // Alesis
Following tours with the likes of boygenius and Bon Ivor, Mk.gee has dropped his album, Two Star & the Dream Police. Dreamy lo-fi and and R&B-flecked pop collude to make for a transformative collection of tracks.

Join the Black Country’s BIG SPECIAL for a day on the bins, soundtracked by the whiplash-inducing extremities of ‘DUST OFF / START AGAIN’. The duo have seen snowballing interest in recent months, and deservedly so.
