Listen to ‘Beggin For Thread’, another cut from BANKS’ ‘Goddess’

BANKS - BEGGIN FOR THREAD

British songstress BANKS has released another cut from her forthcoming album, GoddessBeggin For Thread follows the stunning, Drowning, and kicks the tempo up a notch. “My words can come out at a pistol”, she sings on Beggin For Thread putting in song what we’ve known all along- BANKS has one spiteful tongue. With this latest track, it’s fast becoming clear that Goddess will be a dark project built upon confidence and brooding melodies. Beggin For Thread could well be the most immediately likeable song we’ve heard so far. Mark your calendars- 5 September the album drops and it’s going to be one hell of a record.

The Weeknd drops new track, ‘King of the Fall’

Serial-creeper and the man with a voice of velvet, The Weeknd, has released another new song in celebration of a tour announcement. The tour is in fall and as such, The Weeknd is now the King of the Fall. It’s not a big departure from anything he’s done in the past but it’s always nice to hear some more haunting, sparse RnB. The brooding breakdown in the middle-part of the song is something to look out for.

Kwamie Liv- comin THRU

Looking for Paper Planes without the tacky, dance-along moves? Look no further than the third offering from Danish-singer Kwamie Liv, comin THRU. There’s mellow, RnB undertones followed by a hip-hop-inspired chorus that pops like M.I.A’s hallmark track. Wanna’ get down, pop-it and lock-it this weekend? Yeah, you do. Press play.

Vic Mensa- Feel That

It was always going to be a hard job following up Down on my Luck but Chicago rapper Vic Mensa has done a valiant job. We don’t publicly condone it, but if your Saturday looks anything like this video then you’ve had one helluva weekend. As for the track, it’s a hip-hop banger that lays a runaway train flow over sparse hip-hop beats.

The Drums- Magic Mountain

The Drums have gone from the beach to the mountains on this trippy comeback single. There’s a bit more noise, there’s a little bit more psychedelic but The Drums are still there at the core of it all. Stick around for the 2min 30 mark when it all gets a little bit spooky and we descend down the mountain and into the rabbit hole.

Tkay Maidza- U-Huh

Is there something in the Adelaide water? Motez, Allday and now 18-year old Tkay Maidza has taken to the stage as one of the most exciting new talents to watch in 2014. After seducing us with her catchy track Brontosaurus back in 2013, U-huh is Maidza’s first single since signing with Brisbane label Dew Process – home to London Grammar, Mumford & Sons and Sarah Blasko. This track is crisp, sassy and the perfect blend of hip-hop and pop – in a way that Azealia Banks could only dream to replicate. Timed to perfection,this release comes as Tkay is set to play Splendour in the Grass next weekend, Listen Out and Big Sound in coming months. Be sure to catch her before the rest of the world eats her up!

Perfume Genius- Queen

Mike Hadreas (aka Perfume Genius) embraces his inner Freddy Mercury this week on the bold new track from his forthcoming album, Too Bright. It’s production is far denser than anything he’s done before with haunting whistles, brave percussion and a vocal that sees Perfume Genius take charge like never before. We’re not sure about the Perfume part but this one is definitely Genius.

Sinead Harnett- No Other Way (Ryan Hemsworth Remix)

Hemsworth is the guy you know and trust to do your work justice, and his re-work of London-based songstress Sinead Harnett‘s No Other Way is no exception. Production-wise, it is hard to fault him, serving up the perfect balance between soul, toyed melody and dancey electronica. The layered synths up the tempo of the catchy chilled-out original to produce the perfect mid-Winter pick-me-up.

Ryan Hemsworth- One For Me (Feat. Tinashe) (Lucas Remix)

*Wipes tears away*. Much Ryan Hemsworth this week, many feels. Seattle producer, Lucas does an emotional flip of Hemsworth’s album cut, One For Me. Tinashe’s vocals are taken down a few notches to sound like a soulful male, while Lucas lays down keys and a steady beat. This song was already beautiful but this just takes it to another level. If you’re going through a breakup this weekend, press repeat. If not, press next.

– Walk This Way (Lido Remix)

It’s everything video games and gaming arcades on the Lido remix of ’s track, Walk This Way. It introduces a whole new element of trickling synths and skittered beats that will possibly grate you and possibly won’t. Such is the joy of the democratic nature of music.

Astronomyy – Nothin On My Mind (Bearson Remix)

the interns have got tropical fever this week from La Roux’s Trouble in Paradise and the vibes are continuing with this remix of Astronomyy’s Nothing On My Mind. Oslo House producer, Bearson has reworked the already-chilled track with, taking us from beach to beach bar.

ODESZA – Memories That You Call (feat. Monsoonsiren)

Seattle-based duo ODESZA have dropped their dreamy first track from their upcoming second album, In Return. Awash with heavenly synths accompanied by purposeful percussion, Memories That You Call is an anthem of youth; painting pictures of wayward journeys across the plains.

And here’s another. We’re feeling generous:

Treasure Fingers & BOSCO- Names

Brooklyn label Fools Gold is quite literally a goldmine of tunes. Their latest delivery is from Atlanta Producer Treasure Fingers and it’s a disco cross hip-hop cross house number that’s exactly what it sounds like- a perfect amalgamation of sound. He’s joined by singer/songwriter BOSCO who effortlessly goes in between rapping and singing, sassiness and sensuality. Grab someone and grind them when listening to this. It will make so much more sense. Please make sure you know the person you grab.

Listen to new Jhené Aiko, ‘The Pressure’

artworks-000085372668-a3v1m3-t500x500

Jhené Aiko is quickly becoming the top lady in R&B. Her last track To Love and Die was exquisite and her collaborations with Drake and Childish Gambino have shown she can steal the attention from the boys. Apparently her record, Souled Out, has been delayed until much later in the year but she’s given us a peace offering in the form of The PressureThe Pressure is a mid-tempo RnB jam that sees Aiko lay her silky smooth vocals over top. In the words of Alicia Keys, this girl is on fire.

Jeremih and Shlohmo Release EP ‘No More’

130807-ryan-hemsworth

Ryan Hemsworth serves up the perfect balance of soul and well-crafted production in his most recent rework of London songwriter, Sinead Harnett’s ‘No Other Way’. The layered synths up the tempo from the original chilled track, to produce a dancey, yet thoughtful augmentation of the original.

Vic Mensa unleashes the drug-fuelled ‘Feel That’

Vic Mensa‘s Down On My Luck has quickly become an interns favourite this year, this we are suitably excited about this lated release. The latest track is called Feel That and it’s another drug-induced, party tune that comes with a video that emulates that. There’s girls, clubs, amazing LA homes and a shooting style that descends into hazy visuals. Chance The Rapper even appears at one point. It like a poignant feature given those two are the biggest new names in rap right now.

Kwamie Liv is ‘comin THRU’

comin THRU

What happens when you cross M.I.A with a little bit of Lana Del Rey and Robyn? You get Kwamie Liv– a Danish artist who is an amalgamation of the best qualities of all three. Already she’s impressed with 5am and Follow You but comin THRU is by far her most immediately likeable taste. Sweet, solemn verses are juxtaposed with a chorus that has the effortless flow of M.I.A’s Paper Planes without the need for ridiculous hand actions. There was a certain lo-fi quality to her last track, Follow You, but comin THRU is having none of that. It’s a crisp, slice of perfection that is difficult to box into one genre.

GEoRGiA follows-up ‘Be Ache’ with ‘Digits’

Digits

We featured GEoRGiA‘s first track, Be Ache, on the interns back in June and have waited for a follow-up to the l0-fi wonder ever since. Today, as if by magic, another one has appeared titled, Digits. Where Be Ache was a manic collision of sounds, Digits is a far more demure, streamlined affair. The beat still packs a punch but you really get to hear GEoRGiA’s sweet and sour vocals here alongside a mellow synth-line. It’s a definite nod to RnB but there is also an industrial rawness to it not unlike Kanye West‘s Yeezus. Digits has a progressed feel for melody than Be Ache and is likely to work it’s way into the playlists of more listeners. One of 2014’s names to watch.
