The Playlist: Paul McCartney / James Vincent McMorrow / Necrowretch

The songs that are hot on our playlist this week

Paul McCartney - New

This Mark Ronson-produced title track on the ex-Beatle's latest album, is a jaunty, upbeat number that could easily have been written in 1967.

James Vincent McMorrow - Cavalier

The Irish singer-songwriter employs soaring vocal lines and syrupy orchestration to take his folk sound in a decidedly pop direction.

Necrowretch - Sadistic Expiation

The sun-kissed Rhone Valley may seem like an unlikely place to find a brutal, old-school death metal act, but following the success of their “Bestial Rites” LP, Necrowretch are now one of Europe's most prominent heavy rock bands.

Lee Bannon - 216

The Sacramento producer continues to experiment with his own releases following the success of 2012 album “Fantastic Plastic”. This new single is taken from his hotly-tipped new LP “Alternate/Endings”.

Holy Ghost! - Hold On, We're Going Home

Following cover versions by Arctic Monkeys, Rick Ross and Dev Hynes, the Brooklyn synthpop group are the latest unlikely act to cover the Drake track.
