The Playlist: Foals/ Kim Ann Foxman/ Lust for Youth/ Roc Marciano featuring Ka/ Majical Cludz/ The Evens/ Earl Sweatshirt
Saturday 10 November 2012
The Oxford band finally make their return. This slow, warm and gentle single is a considerably more mature than their previous yelpy math-rock work.
Kim Ann Foxman
The long-time Hercules and Love Affair collaborator finally gets around to releasing her debut single – a well-constructed, vocal-led house track.
Lust For Youth
Swedish producer Hannes Norrvide blends syrupy strings with harsh industrial beats to create a sound that is unique but cohesive.
Roc Marciano featuring Ka
Perfect rap noir from the New York duo. With lines about Marciano's favourite gun and stashing £400,000 in a basement, this is uncompromising stuff.
Turns Turns Turns
Montreal producer Devon Welsh may be best known as a "friend of Grimes", but his minimalist psychedelic soundscapes are worth a listen in their own right.
King of Kings
US punk heavyweight Ian MacKaye's long-term side-project return with this excellent new single.
No longer MIA, Odd Future's youngest and most enigmatic member is finally producing the string of excellent releases it was obvious he was capable of.
