The Music Week Playlist: July 9, 2018

Avelino (feat. Not3s)
Boasy (More Music/Odd Child)

This new jam finds Avelino musing on his journey so far, and it’s clear the bling doesn’t matter to an MC whose bars ooze familiar honesty. Not3s adds ample summery swing.

The Goon Sax

She Knows (Wichita Recordings)

Indie types are falling for The Goon Sax, and this track buzzes and bangs in all the right places. The Brisbane trio release new LP We’re Not Talking in September.

Contact Lucy Hurst


Proxy Love (RCA)

Here’s another one from HMLTD’s just-released EP, Hate Music Last Time Delete. Their monstrous pop vision has never been so fully formed.

Contact Ash Collins

Pale Waves

Noises (Dirty Hit)

The melodic Manchester goths break from the road long enough to release another elastic indie-pop treat. Coming to a festival near you this summer.

Contact Elliot Mitchell

Drake (feat. Michael Jackson)

Don’t Matter To Me (Young Money/Cash Money/Republic/Island)

The unreleased Michael Jackson vocal on this emotionally blue cut from Drake’s Scorpion shocks the breath away. The King Of Pop lives on.

Contact Shane O’Neill

Charli XCX

Focus (Asylum)

Charli XCX keeps her promise of more new music: this minimal, clubby offering is joined by the slower, poppier, No Angel. She’s on fire.

Contact Claire Coster


Living In The Future (HUB)

Taken from the South Carolina quartet’s sixth album, this is rock as heard from the top of a skyscraper – huge, epic, endless.
