The Playlist: Bobby Womack / Grizzly Bear / Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti / Frank Ocean / Micachu And The Shapes / Get People / Family Band
'Whatever Happened To The Times'
A grizzled, slow-burn soul number from the veteran singer's new album The Bravest Man In The World, produced by Damon Albarn.
Intelligent, innovative guitar work provides a rootsy backing on this first track from the band's as-yet-untitled fourth LP.
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
A stripped-back cover of a 1979 track by Joe and Donnie Emerson. Pink's gravelly vocals are emotive, and the layers of keys add depth, without reinventing the song.
More new material from the hardest-working man in hip hop. This 10-minute single works its way through every genre of contemporary pop, from club banger to slow jam.
Micachu And The Shapes
After a couple of years away, the London collective return in typically experimental style.
An exclusive download from Abeano.com, GP's track is a creepy soundscape with layered, breathy vocals.
Sultry, country-tinged indie folk from Brooklyn, with a rich, melancholic sound.
