The Music Week Playlist: March 27, 2017

Drake (feat Black Coffee and Jorja Smith)
Get It Together,
Island

Drake’s patronage of UK talent continues, with this minimal housey groove augmented by rising Midlands singer Smith’s moreish vocal.

Clean Cut Kid

Leaving You Behind,
Babe Magnet Records/Polydor

Emphatic and imbued with pleasant bounce, this single precedes the Liverpool foursome’s debut album Felt, released April 28.

HO99O9
United States Of Horror,
Toys Have Power/Caroline

Deranged, horrible and loud enough to induce incontinence (possibly), this is the title-track of the punk pair’s upcoming second record, out May 5.
Contact Sarah Maynard

Weirds
Phantom,
Alcopop! Records

Have this dirgey Leeds band come up with the best album name of 2017? It’s called Swarmculture and, going by this unruly mess, it’ll be pretty great.
Contact Angela Owen

Feist
Pleasure,
Polydor

Large swathes of it may be plinky and minimal, but Feist’s comeback rocks harder than a massive mountain. From fifth album, Pleasure, due April 28.

Kelsea Ballerini
Yeah Boy,
Sony Music CG/Black River Entertainment

Country’s Next Big Thing released debut album The First Time in the UK this month, and this latest single backs up all the ‘next Taylor Swift’ chat.
Contact Barbara Charone

Milk Music
Crying Wand,
Dom America

These long-haired disciples of Neil Young and strong weed are making some of the best rock’n’roll around. Seek out new album Mystic 100s now.
