The Playlist: Jessie Ware and Benzel / Gunplay / Carnage featuring Katie Got Bandz / Yvette / Veronica Falls
Jessie Ware and Benzel
If You Love Me
Ware embraces 90s R&B on this excellent Brownstone cover. The reworked dubstep beat makes this a thoroughly modern interpretation, however.
The Hard Way
Pure rap machismo. The lyrical quality is questionable, but Gunplay's putdowns are the stuff of playground dreams.
Carnage featuring Katie Got Bandz
Katie Got Bandz follows up her 'Katieeeee' hit by appearing on this synthy Carnage number. She may need to work on the song titles, though.
The Brooklyn duo make complex post-punk soundscapes that are as demanding as they are experimental.
With a considerably brighter mood than their gloomy debut LP, the Londoners sound almost happy on this celebration of youthful naivety.
