The Music Week Playlist: February 6, 2017

My Old Man,
Captured Tracks

Noga Erez
City Slang

Pity finds the Tel Aviv experimentalist defending the victim of a 2015 Israeli sexual assault case via flamboyant pop. This buzzes with intent.
Contact Kate Price

Rough Trade

Twisted electronics and vocals offer up a pulverising taste of the BRIT-nominated singer’s upcoming EP, out March 17.

Louis Berry
She Wants Me,
Ministry Of Sound

Contact Thom Denson
