The Playlist: Kanye West / Dan Boden / Autopsy

The songs that are hot on our playlist this week

Kanye West

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.

Dan Boden


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.

Temple Songs

Passed Caring

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

Collard Greens

Rap’s hot duo reunite on this slick, sparse brawler.  A must listen for hip  hop fans.
