Kicking the playlist off this week, we're heading straight for a mid-afternoon hangover with NY angel Yaeji and her Drink I'm Sippin On. The Magic Gang tell us that we're gonna be Alright, but all we can think about is how much we can't wait to play CU Again as much as poss. It's the new Adrian Underhill track and is produced by long-haired nice guy Kindness. The next tune is a feel-good piece of magic from Michael fucking Cera with vocals from Sharon Van Etten. The unlikely duo reportedly share a studio, so now we can finally be at peace.
Enjoy the end to the working week with newbies from King Krule, The Breeders, Rich Chigga, 16yrold, Dark0, AJ Tracey, and, um, Weezer. Not forgetting that Estonian rapper Tommy Cash with what sounds suspiciously like a hardcore tune; Cid Rim with a Samantha Urbani feature; and the main girl herself, Kelela, with a whole debut album you're gonna learn all the words to, entitled Take Me Apart. It was tough selecting just one track from the impressive record, but we settled on Onanon, and not just for the fun title. On and on, get it? Calling all Londoners now: did you know that you can join Kelela at Heaven this 28 and 29 November? It will be beyond. But until then, stay musically au courant with our new music Friday highlights, and follow us so you never miss out. Have a good one!
