The Playlist: Kanye West / Dan Boden / Autopsy
The songs that are hot on our playlist this week
Blood On The Leaves
Taken from new album ‘Yeezus’, which leaked earlier in the week, “Blood” is a musically brilliant but ethically-confused track. In angrily comparing his struggle to keep ex-girlfriends apart to apartheid, West is either being deliberately provocative, or unbelievably stupid.
Taken from the Berlin-based DJ’s forthcoming debut LP, this track is wonderful, warm electro-pop.
Mangled Far Below
It’s rare for death metal to feature in The Playlist, but a new release by genre legends Autopsy is always a noteworthy event.
Following support dates with some of the most exciting new guitar bands in the country, this lo-fi psych/garage band, above, signed to the equally exciting RIP Records. This is their debut release on that imprint.
Fat White Family
Cream of the Young
One of the creepiest songs of recent years, the Manson Family obsessives mix elements of The Fall with stripped-back country balladeering.
Schoolboy Q ft. Kendrick Lamar
Rap’s hot duo reunite on this slick, sparse brawler. A must listen for hip hop fans.
