Kendrick Lamar has just dropped his new single 'i'. The song is the first material fans will hear from the Compton rapper's new album, the follow up to his hugely successful 2012 album 'Good kid, Maad City.'

Sundara Karma: Listen To Their Strutting New Track 'Hustle' - Premiere

If the recently revealed 'Indigo Puff' was Reading four-piece Sundara Karma's bid for your attention, then its b-side 'Hustle' is the sound of them assuredly justifying themselves. "You're the devil in a push-up bra," sings frontman Oscar Lulu, confidently strutting all over his bandmates' serene but funky backing.

'Indigo Puff'/'Hustle' is released on October 6 via 203 Recordings.

NME Exclusive – Listen To Kwabs' Stunning And Soulful New EP 'Walk'

NME has been a bit smitten with Kwabs for some time now – especially after his ace 'Pray For Love' EP, released earlier this year, came with the standout track 'Something Right'. "His damaged lyrics and [producer] Sohn’s frigid beats quake in such a way that they whip up a freezing, doom-heavy feeling," said NME's Ben Homewood at the time.
