Hit of the week: Anderson .Paak “Bubblin”

Earlier this year, Anderson .Paak promised fans not one, but two albums in 2018: one solo record and one with his band The Free Nationals. New music from Anderson .Paak is highly anticipated within the hip-hop community following the enormous praise generated by his Grammy-nominated breakthrough album, Malibu, in 2016. So far this year he’s appeared on the Black Panther soundtrack, and his music was featured in a visually striking Spike Jonze-directed Apple commercial starring FKA Twigs. Now, Paak released a brand new solo track, “Bubblin”,

Hit of the week: Chromatics ‘Black Walls’

Few albums have left music fans in as much suspense as Chromatics’ long-awaited Dear Tommy. The record was originally announced in 2014, with a handful of cuts from the 17-song tracklist — “Just Like You”, “Shadow”, “In Films”, and “I Can Never Be Myself When You’re Around” — having been shared over the intervening years.

Now, finally, it seems Jewel may have a version of the album he’s happy enough with to share with the rest of the world. A sparsely written press release has dated Dear Tommyfor a fall 2018 release from Italians Do It Better. To add more credence to the possibility this is for real, Chromatics have shared a new single called “Black Walls”.  “Black Walls” is a beating, slinking track filled with tight mystery that opens wide with climbing synths

Hit of the week: Disclousure ‘Ultimatum’

Disclosure have finally made their return to music after a lengthy hiatus, with ‘Ultimatum’ featuring Fatoumata Diawara.

The groove-centric cut is a real foot-tapper effort from the UK duo, with Disclosure going in heavy with the Summery, dance-floor ready instrumentation that works wonder with the vocal work from the Maliani collaborator, Diawara.

The track has come as quite the surprise today, following a leak of the artwork that circulated Reddit overnight that got fans in all sorts. We already know they are working on a new album, and if ‘Ultimatum’ is anything to judge it by, we’re in for a good one.

Hit of the week: Arctic Monkeys ‘Four Out Of Five’

Last Friday, Arctic Monkeys released their sixth studio album, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. The album has already proved divisive amongst fans, some of whom are praising it as their new Humbug, and others who dislike the slower, piano-driven approach the band have taken.

The first music video from this new era of Arctic Monkeys is for ‘Four Out Of Five’, and was directed by Ben Chappell and Aaron Brown mainly at Castle Howard in Yorkshire. There’s lots of screens, a horse, and a dog. We’ll leave you to enjoy the first visual glimpse at Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.

Hit of the week: Parcels ‘TIEDUPRIGHTNOW’

Australian electro-pop band Parcels just released their latest track ‘TIEDUPRIGHTNOW’ and its accompanying music video, the follow-up to their breakout single ‘Overnight’. Forming in high school back in 2014, the five-piece band quickly found success late last year. ‘Overnight,’ which was co-produced by Daft Punk, enjoyed unforeseen success in the northern hemisphere, surpassing 50 million streams online. The band also began to build their live reputation too, with a string of popular sold out gigs.

‘TIEDUPRIGHTNOW’ is an upbeat second track with a strong disco feel, and looks destined to be a summer anthem.

 

 

 

Hit of the week: The Internet “Roll (Burbank Funk)”

It’s been nearly three years since The Internet dropped their Grammy-nominated album, Ego Death. In that time, a number of its members have struck out on their own to much success — in 2017, both Syd and Steve Lacy released Fin and Steve Lacy’s Demo, respectively. Lacy also earned acclaim for his contributions to Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. masterpiece.

Now, all of The Internet have reconvened for a new single which features a duet by Syd and Lacy. Dubbed “Roll (Burbank Funk)”, it’s a warm and intoxicatingly funky song ideal for hot summer nights spent on the dance floor. Per a statement, the track channels “shades of 70’s Earth Wind & Fire, Deee-lite’s “Groove is in the Heart”.
