The Music Week Playlist: December 5, 2016

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

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

Rex Orange County

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

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

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

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

Young Death / Nightmarket

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