Music Week Playlist: July 20, 2020

Tiwa Savage heads up our playlist this week...

Tiwa Savage
Dangerous Love (Motown Island)
Already hailed “Queen of Afrobeat”, this new track from Tiwa Savage should extend her rule. Over smokey sax and sharp clicks, the Nigerian singer deliveries her intoxicating vocals which are subtle yet irresistible.
Contact Shane O’Neill

The Goa Express
Be My Friend (The Goa Express)
Bright, soaring indie from the Burnley five-piece that is both hectic and euphoric. Recently signed to Rough Trade Management, boarding this Express early is advised.
Contact James Parrish

Kaytranada (Ft Lucky Daye)
Look Easy (RCA)
Flittering, wisp-like synths enliven the Haitian Canadian’s brooding beats and tortured vocals. It’s a strong marker as Kaytranada prepares to follow up 2019 album Bubba.
Contact Beth Parnell

Who Writes Tomorrow’s Headlines? (Cool Thing Records)
Urgent, chiming and agitated rock from?the Southend band’s Steve Albini produced new album, Genetic Cabaret. Headline performances beckon after these “headlines”.
Contact Emma Van Duyts

Kid Cudi (Ft Eminem)
The Adventures Of Moon Man And Slim Shady (Wicked Awesome)
Cudi and Slim offer an emotional, raw and incisive take on America’s last few months in the wake of George Floyd’s death and the anti-police demonstrations that have followed.
Contact Shane O’Neill

Jarv Is
Am I Missing Something (Rough Trade Records)
The world has missed Jarvis Cocker’s urgent whispers over a cinematic soundtrack. This from the just released Beyond The Pale matches the desperate elan of Pulp’s best.
Contact Jamie Woolgar

Diana DeMuth
Into My Arms (Thirty Tigers)
A bolting mix of alt-country arrangements, smart wordplay and a heart-swelling chorus, arms everywhere should open to welcome Massachusetts songwriter Diana DeMuth.
Contact Barbara Charone
