The August Playlist: Vol. 3


THE talk this weekend will naturally revolve…

around Frank Ocean and his as-yet-untitled-no-idea-when-it-will-drop album. His visual release, Endless, came out yesterday and was met with generally favourable reviews. Muddled and long in places, yet filled with great moments: it provided a real glimmer of light and tantilisation for his new, traditional album. That will be with us shortly, but in the third part of this August feature, let’s have a look at other songs and acts out there. All these tracks are either out or will be out in the form of albums in the coming weeks – a few sneaky peaks into early-September and the musicians who will be unveiling new work then. With a rainy and traditional British day upon us: what better excuse than discovers some great new music…

September promises some bumper releases and who knows what singles will be revealed prior to that? It has been a productive and exceptional last month for music and so many terrific songs have made their way to us. Frank Ocean is creating waves and whatever comes, it is sure to be met with a flurry of fevered praise and excitable proffering. The weather is pretty unpredictable and harsh so it is a great time to close the window and surrender to some of August’s finest new tracks.
