a RI-ku:
a desert world cup,
the globe’s great unifier
(gays not invited)

PinkPantheress // Do you miss me? 
Whispers of looped acoustic guitar ride atop a garage-pop melody as one of British pop’s great hopes pulls another out of the bag. ‘Do you miss me?’ sees PinkPantheress forming a formidable tag-team with Kaytranada on production duties.

Saint Jude // Does
Songwriter/producer Saint Jude has released his debut album, Signal, which pays homage to the sonic scenes that have soundtracked his South London adolescence. ‘Does’ pushes much of Signal‘s beauty to the fore: opaque, confrontational and effortlessly charming.

Horsegirl // Philip Glass
Chicago trio Horsegirl have been something of a revelation since dropping their debut album via Matador earlier this year. named after the legendary composer, ‘Philip Glass’ sees the band diverting from their textured grunge-rock in favour of something otherworldly.

Robbie & Mona // Clapback
Loved by all who encounter them; Robbie & Mona fuse smouldering jazz club mystique with a bolt of electronica that demands attention. Check out our chat with the couple from last year’s MOTH Club show.

Nation of Language  // Across The Fine Line (Working Men’s Club Remix)
Nation of Language have teamed up with another titan of 80s synth revival, Working Men’s Club, to make for a delicious remix which packs dancefloor-ready 808 and the jagged tension of coldwave.

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs // Mr Medicine
The heavy psychedelic rock of Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs was one of the great crowd pleasers of festival season and their new track ‘Mr Medicine’ has an appropriately trippy visual accompaniment.
