The Playlist: My Bloody Valentine/ Melody's Echo Chamber/ Drake/ Action Bronson/ Local Natives
My Bloody Valentine
The second track on the band's long-awaited reunion album is as anthemic, dark and complex as any serious fan would hope. A rich return, packed with futuristic guitars.
Melody's Echo Chamber
Je Me Perds de Vue
A bright and breezy little indie-pop number, brought to you by one of France's hottest new talents (above). UK gigs have been announced for this spring.
Started From the Bottom
As ever, Drake's braggadocio dominates the track, but it's producer Kendrick Lamar's beats and instrumental hooks that set it apart from his recent work.
Strictly 4 the Jeeps
Borrowing liberally from the EPMD track Rampage, Bronson and producer Harry Fraud create a lively track that “hates on” the Albanian-American rapper's band of hangers on.
You and I
Released last week in the UK, the band's latest single comes from the Natives' acclaimed new album, “Hummingbird”
