The Playlist: The xx / MellowHype / The Gaslamp Killer ft. Miguel Atwood-Ferguson / Domo Genesis & the Alchemist ft. Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples and Action Bronson / Puro Instinct / Talk Normal
The first single from the band's forthcoming second album, 'Coexist'. Immediately recognisable as The xx, this simple pop track also harbours some subtle experimentation.
The Odd Future duo announced details of their second side-project LP last week, and dropped this brand new track shortly afterwards.

The second Odd Future-affiliated release this week, and it's equally excellent. Each of the featured artists' verses adds a new layer to the song.
Puro Instinct's breezy, euphoric dream-pop will appeal to fans of bands such as Blood Orange and Friends.
