There are some big choices to make today. Are you going to spin Grimes’ latest album or go for Rustie’s surprise offering? Are you going to get your pop fix from Ellie Goulding or Little Mix? Are you going to re-visit the Sam Smith album thanks to the temptation of one new song and a repackaged edition? Or are you going to keep it local and go for Sarah Blasko or City Calm Down? Don’t forget GoldLink’s album too!
We’re not going to help you with any of those decisions. Instead we’re just going to throw a bunch more songs into the mix. Cancel your weekend, everyone. There’s far too much music to be heard. (Psst…we’re now on Spotify!)
Glaswegian producer Rustie dropped a new album today and gave us all of one day’s notice. Peace Upzzz is one of the songs that he preceded that album with and really sets the tone for the album which is essentially a return to basics for the producer. It’s glitchy and hazy but there’s this helicopter-like synth that provides clarity too it. The big finale is, of course, those big weighty Rustie beats. It’s weird but it’s wild and probably one of the most thrilling things he’s done in a while.

Can’t Get Enough Of Myself
A Santigold return this year wasn’t really on our radar but after hearing Can’t Get Enough Of Myself, my goodness are we glad it happened. The track is the first single from her forthcoming album 99c and it’s a reggae-flavoured slice of sunshine that recalls images of skipping down the road with a sunflower in one hand and your rude finger pointing to the sky on the other. Santigold’s “no fucks given” attitude was always what made her so attractive and it’s out here in full force.
