New Kanye West & Pusha T-‘New God Flow’

Here is the latest track from the G.O.O.D Music record from Kanye and Pusha T. It has trademark West beats, and Yeezy and Pusha kill it as usual. It will be interesting to see what form the record takes shape. This might be my favourite of the new tunes released so far.

It’s streaming here…

Track: Chapel Club-‘Sleep Alone’

I am well late on this, but I have to write about it. ‘Sleep Alone’ by Chapel ClubI honestly haven’t listened to them much, but this bad boy is a groovy, uplifting tune. Hip-hop style drums accompany dreamy guitars and flickering electronica. This is an unusual direction to take for an Indie band from England, but this is great.

Two New Blur Tracks: Under The Westway & The Puritan

Blur streamed two new tracks today, both of which are very different. ‘Under The Westway’ is a melancholy and beautiful track that most fans will love. ‘The Puritan’ is such a playful track, fit with pop beats and a gleaming dance side. This is seriously such an awesome track and as a longtime fan, I love it. It remains to be seen if they will record again, but Damon Albarn made positive noises on Zane Lowe’s radio showI am hoping for a record anyway.

Not one but two collaborations between Lana Del Rey and A$AP RockyFirstly we have the video for Del Rey’s track National Anthem, from the album ‘Born To Die’. A$AP plays JFK to Del Rey’s Marilyn MonroeIt’s a mighty fine video, encapsulating the sixties feel of her music. Then there is the Kickdrums track featuring both of them. Listen to that over at NahRight.

The Antlers-‘Drift Dive’

Man, this new piece of music by The Antlers is so damn good. I don’t use the word dreamy often, but that would describe this. ‘Drift Dive’ has possibly the most dreamy guitar riff of the year so far, has chilled out vocals and a beautiful crescendo of piano, drums and strings in the background. There is a lot of music that can be described as ‘beachy’, but this is beachy in a different way. I could easily imagine floating down a stream with this playing. Best track of the week for me.
