James Blake
If The Car Beside You Moves Ahead (Polydor)

He still sounds down in the mouth, but James Blake’s latest hints at a return to the heavy, unpredictable textures of his earliest releases.

Contact Ruth Drake

Get Out (Virgin EMI)

This spacious, synthy new single was cooked up in Chvrches’ first studio session with pop lord Greg Kurstin. It hints at big things to come.

Contact Adrian Read

The Men
Rose On Top Of The World (Sacred Bones)

From their upcoming seventh album, Drift, this is yet another nugget of brilliance from one America’s gnarliest rock bands.

Contact Frankie Davison

The Weeknd & Kendrick Lamar
Pray For Me (TDE/Aftermath/Interscope)

Taken from the Black Panther OST, this moody number pairs two of the biggest in the game. Kendrick’s venomous flow steals the show.

Contact Shane O’Neill

Goat Girl
The Man (Rough Trade)

An old live favourite gets buffed with spit and polish for a full release.
The London foursome’s debut is due on April 6.

Contact Jamie Woolgar

Nilüfer Yanya
Thanks For Nothing (Blue Flowers/ATO Records)

Simultaneously delicate and fierce, Nilüfer Yanya’s new one comes with a mildly disturbing video and some dreamy guitar chords.
