The Playlist: Jay -Z / Pond / Chvrches
The songs that are hot on our playlist this week
All the Tired Horses
The 10th instalment of Dylan's Bootleg Series is to focus on 1969-71 – an awkward, experimental time that saw Bob pen a number of critically panned but artistically rich tracks.
Featuring Mike Posner on vocals, this is a rich, bombastic track with an emphasis on a thick, heavy drum hook. DJ Boaz Van De Beatz also appears.
End of Time
Haunting and ethereal, this track is one of the best we've heard in 2013. Ellen Murphy's voice is gorgeous throughout.
A dark critique of playing in a modern band, “Wave Forms” is both brutally honest and full of mystery. Islands can expect more critical acclaim.
This North Carolina native (above) makes hook-laden guitar pop that is charming and sophisticated.
T-Model Theme Song
Ford didn't record until 1997, but his death last week marked a significant point in blues history. He was a contemporary of Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf.
