The Playlist: Jay-Z, Kanye West and Big Sean / Death Grips / Deptford Goth / Freddie Gibbs ft Dana Williams / Angel Olson / FUR / Menomena

 

 

Jay-Z, Kanye West and Big Sean

Clique

Produced by the Grammy nominated Hit Boy, this is slick, expansive hip-hop from artists in full flow. Pitchfork's description of it as 'centre of the universe' music is spot on.

--------------------

Death Grips

@deathgripz

Naming a song after your Twitter handle may not be very cool, but this party track is something is something of a red herring on the band's dark and raw new LP, 'The Money Store', anyway.

--------------------

Deptford Goth

Life After Defo

The electro-pop songwriter from New Zealand, Daniel Woolhouse follows up his excellent debut LP with this menacing, gospel-tinged new single.

--------------------

Freddie Gibbs ft Dana Williams

The Hard

From Gibbs's forthcoming 'Baby Face Killa' mixtape, featuring the daughter of Michael Jackson's 'Off The Wall' guitar player David Williams.

--------------------

Angel Olson

Acrobat

Taken from Olsen's second album 'Half Way Home', released next week, 'Acrobat' is dark, timeless folk mixed with smoky cabaret.

--------------------

FUR

Reverie

More scratchy electronica from FUR. 'The Yonder EP', from which this track comes, was released earlier this month.

--------------------

Menomena

Pique

This third teaser track from the group's forthcoming album 'Moms' is soulful electro-indie pop.
