Mø - 'Waste Of Time'

Mø - 'Waste Of Time'

Some of the post-Robyn Scandi-pop doing the rounds feels as twee as a tea cosy, but Denmark’s Mø makes electro music with guts. Here she’s like a cross between Siouxsie Sioux and ’90s Janet Jackson as she asks her unreliable man-friend, “...

DJ Khaled Feat. Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne - 'No New Friends'

DJ Khaled Feat. Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne -...

This moody, charmless, midtempo jam belongs to a very specific subgenre: misanthropic hip-hop. The gist of the song is: these guys have all the friends they need. “ I’m too high to be friendly ”, Wayne explains over heavy clicks. It’s like...

Chase & Status Feat. Louis M^tters - 'Lost And...

The ‘don’t call them drum’n’bass’ duo return with an EDM-defying softer sound on this swooping breakbeat pop track, with vocals by Brighton boy Louis M^ttrs, which sets them up as the Coldplay of dance music. It’s as 2013-sounding as...

Ruen Brothers - 'Walk Like A Man'

To be filed next to Jack White, Black Keys, Jake Bugg and Deap Vally in the box marked ‘stuff that sounds like stuff from other decades’, ‘Walk Like A Man’ is a blend of Everly Brothers rock’n’roll and delta blues that belies the fact...

10 Tracks You Have To Hear This Week (02/07/2013)

Franz Ferdinand - 'Right Action' If you think teachers have long holidays, consider Franz Ferdinand. With a whopping four years since their last album, the Scottish four-piece have a fair claim to being the slackest band in the business. But...
