The Music Week Playlist: July 10, 2017

Princess Nokia
G.O.A.T,
Rough Trade

New York rapper Destiny Frasqueri debuts for Rough Trade with a compelling, sub-three minute burst of moody introspection.

Skepta
Hypocrisy,
Boy Better Know

Skepta gets candid on this slithering new single, claiming he turned down an MBE. He also declined some “amazing dinners”. Good on him.

Moses Sumney
Doomed, ~
Jagjaguwar

Don’t go anywhere near this if you’re feeling sad. The new Jagjaguwar signing has a voice to suck breath from the lungs.

Contact Michelle Kambasha

Matthew Dear
Modafinil Blues, ~
Ghostly International

This comeback from the Detroit producer is cold and robotic, but, as usual, his emotive delivery pumps it full of soul.

Contact Nathan Beazer

AJ Tracey
False 9,
My Team Paid

Maximum points to AJ for packing this with football references. One line sees him rhyme Croatian playmaker Luka Modric with ‘ostrich’.

St Vincent
New York,
Loma Vista Recordings/Caroline International

Annie Clark returns with an ode to the Big Apple with a chorus so big you can’t help but belt it out. Watch out Alicia Keys!

Tyler, The Creator (feat. Frank Ocean)
911/Mr Lonely,
Columbia

Remember when OFWGKTA cattle prodded the world with hip-hop and youth? Here’s a reminder of that thrill, from two proper rock stars.
