Music Week Playlist: April 17th, 2017

Mac DeMarco
On The Level,
Captured Tracks

Another sad one from the Canadian’s upcoming This Old Dog (out May 5), this song balances hopeless lyrics with a great chunky synth line.

Dave
Revenge,
Self-released

Highlights of Dave’s latest banger: video game gurgles, deep production from Fraser T Smith and a shout out for tasty soft drink Rubicon.

Richard Dawson

Ogre,
Weird World Recordings

The Tyneside crackpot launches new LP Peasant (out June 2) with a bundle of twangy guitar, mad percussion and a perversely memorable hook.

Harry Styles

Sign Of The Times,
Columbia

Turns out there was a frustrated emotional wreck waiting to burst from within the 1D cherub all along. Has he gone from boy band to indie kid?

Frank Ocean (feat. Jay Z and Tyler, The Creator)

Biking,
Self-released

Summery, crunchy and more awake than than the largely comatose Blonde, this is a welcome pick-me-up from old Frank.

Mary J Blige (feat. Kanye West)

Love Yourself,
Capitol/Island Records

Strength Of A Woman, out April 28, is Mary J Blige’s 13th album. This single is like a cattle prod to a good mood. Play when you need to feel amazing.

Melody’s Echo Chamber

Cross My Heart,
Rayon Vert

Severing herself from a psych-rock past this week is Melody Prochet. Her method? Seven minutes of wriggling melody and a flute solo.
