Vol. 1: Hurry on Home, Because the Press Are Here…


LAST week…


I was saying how there seems to be this switch between weeks that are not so hot regarding new music and those that are positively ablaze! I do love the fact there is that contrast and, on the first day of June, I give to you a playlist that is dripping with gold and quality! Last week was sort of okay but it didn’t have nearly the same amount of headline-worthy acts that have released huge tracks. This week, Sleater-Kinney, Miley Cyrus; Kate Tempest, Hot Chip and Bruce Springsteen are in the mix. Throw in some Cardi B, Skepta and School of Language and there is plenty of wonder in there to keep even the fussiest music fan happy and fulfilled. I am curious whether this momentum will carry on and whether we will see the same sort of spread this time next week. That is the thing about music: you never know what you’ll get and what a week will provide! It is exciting to think what will arrive next week but, before then, enjoy this veritable banquet…
