The Playlist: The Doors/ Beyoncé/ The Wytches/ The Boxer Rebellion/ The Clash/ She and Him
The songs that are
hot on our playlist this week
Light My Fire
Following the death of the Doors' founder member Ray Manzarek (pictured) earlier this week, this track – on which his keyboard playing is truly excellent – became an unofficial tribute.
She may be America's foremost female singer, but Beyoncé certainly takes her time with official releases. This new single, teaser clips of which were played back during the Superbowl, is finally out.
This is the stunning new double A-side single from Brighton's spookiest sons.
The Boxer Rebellion
The atmospheric lead single from the London indie-rock band's new album, 'Promises', has the emotive resonance of The National – and should see them take the leap to the next level.
Lose This Skin
With a huge outtakes and rarities collection, and separate 'Best Of' reissue announced for later this year, now feels like a good time to dust off The Clash's oft-overlooked 'Sandinista!' album.
She and Him
I Could've Been Your Girl
As always with She and Him releases, the pop melodies make this well worth a listen, despite Zooey Deschanel's ubiquitous, increasingly irritating cutesy shtick.
