The Music Week Playlist: December 5, 2016

Happyness
Falling Down
Moshi Moshi Records

The London students of frayed American indie have been swotting up. These five head-spinning minutes intro their second album, due next Spring.
Contact Jay Taylor
jay@prescriptionpr.co.uk

Laura Marling
Soothing More
Alarming Records

Not to get overexcited, but this new single, out now, could be Marling’s grooviest song yet. Bass notes, percussion and strings used brilliantly.
Contact Jamie Woolgar
jamiewoolgar@roughtraderecords.com

Rex Orange County
UNO
Unsigned

A three-minute ripper from a new Surrey rapper. This 18-year-old makes scruffy, articulate pop, look out for him next year.
Contact Chris Slade
chris.slade@purplepr.com

Pissed Jeans
The Bar Is Low
Sub Pop

In which the Pennsylvania punk crew pull off the not unremarkable trick of perfectly replicating the sound of an idling motorbike engine.
Contact Joe Parry
joe@insideslashout.com

Jerry Williams
Let’s Just Forget It EP
Sunglasses Records

Winter can be grating. Seek out the sunny, gently rocking character of the Portsmouth singer’s latest release for an antidote.
Contact Ant Giannaccini
anthony@wilfulpublicity.co.uk

Ta’Est
Okay, I’m Ready EP
Deviation Music

The first release on Benji B’s new label showcases the emerging San Diego-via-Kentucky rapper’s clipped bars and padded production. Out now.
Contact Keong Woo
keong.woo@goodmachinepr.com

Burial
Young Death / Nightmarket
Hyperdub

This new 12” is sold out, but anyone who buys the digital versions will be rewarded with spacey groove and meandering, breathy atmospherics.
