The Playlist: Popstrangers / White Lung / Velvet Underground
The songs that are hot on our playlist this week
Tyler the Creator, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Earl Sweatshirt
Complete with its brilliant false start, “Look” may be the best thing the Odd Future collective have released so far in 2013. As usual, Tyler leads the way, but it's actually Hodgy Beats' verse that takes this track to new levels.
Rats in the Palm Trees
Featuring Test Icicles' Rory Attwell, the New Zealand-via-London indie rockers channel the grunge-pop spirit of Wavves' most recent material.
The Juan Maclean ft. Nancy Whang
Feel Like Movin'
The legendary house music producer has once again recruited LCD Soundsystem's vocalist to create a fuzzy 90s-influenced dance track full of retro piano stabs and backwards samples.
Blow It South
Hard and heavy post-rock that draws influence from bands such as Fugazi and Glassjaw.
News that the seminal 'White Light/White Heat' LP by the Velvet Underground is to be re-released in box-set format was all the excuse we needed to whip out this 17-minute-plus track from 1968.
