The Music Week Playlist: April 16, 2018

Kali Uchis
In My Dreams (Virgin EMI)

In Kali Uchis’ dreams, everything is wonderful. And why not? This skittering Damon Albarn collab is from the Colombian-American pop magician’s debut album, Isolation, out now.

Contact Keong Woo

You Don’t Walk Away From Love (Ignition)

Peace’s new one comes with a hacksaw guitar riff and drums that’ll rattle your window frames. New LP Kindness Is The New Rock And Roll drops May 4.

Contact Iris Herscovici

The Weeknd
Call Out My Name (XO/Republic Records)

Each track on The Weeknd’s new
mini-album My Dear Melancholy is as dark, sad and awesome as the next. This is a great place to start, though.

Contact Shane O’Neill

Nice For What (Cash Money/Republic)

Content with the seismic impact made by God’s Plan, Drake chucks another single into the world. Chart compilers, be warned…

Contact Shane O’Neill

Haggard Cat
Bad News (Travels Fast) (Earache)

Also travelling fast is hype about killer bands like garage rock duo Haggard Cat (formerly of hardcore maniacs Heck). Check out their trippy videos, too.

Contact Sarah Maynard

Paseo (Columbia)

The lead single from South London multi-instrumentalist Liam Ramsden’s upcoming Middle England EP is a pleasingly skew-whiff pop oddity.

Contact: Joe Parry

Ms Banks (feat. Loski)
RIP (Kobalt)

Ms Banks links up with fellow South Londoner Loski on a track that pulls no punches whatsoever. “They ain’t fuckin’ with me,” Banks spits. Quite.
