This week's hottest new sounds...
Hypochondriac (Dead Oceans)
Fenne Lily became an indie streaming smash in the wake of her 2018 debut, and now has a new deal with Dead Oceans. This is a delightful taste of what’s next.
Contact Matthew Fogg
The Great Ape (Grupo)
There’s nothing quite like some good old-fashioned noise to blast the cobwebs away, and this Sydney duo’s new skull-shaker arrives in time for Spring. Party on.
Contact Alex Cull
AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS
Control (Live At The Croxton) (Rough Trade)
Recorded live at their favourite Melbourne bar, this new offering from the Sniffers illustrates that their punk juggernaut will roll on through 2020. Long may they rip.

If You Know (self-released)
The South East Londoner offers up a blur of beats and parts on her debut EP, Sorry, I Forgot You Were Coming. It’s out this week, and this is its best cut.
Contact Dan Carson
Dela Move (Soul Circle Music)
Ahead of a new album set to feature guest spots from Little Simz and more, Chronixx drops this boiling hot banger. The LP, Dela Splash, is coming soon.
Contact Kate Head
Love Song (Virgin EMI)
Duke Dumont makes us wait a full minute for the drop on Love Song, and that’s just one of several nice touches on his latest floorfiller. A new album beckons.
Contact Louise Stone
Unda Armor (Columbia)
The genre-hopping rapper builds on the success of last year’s 95 EP with a video for Unda Armor, a dark-hued rumination on leaving the streets behind.
