The xx

Angels

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.

------

MellowHype

Fakuoy

The Odd Future duo announced details of their second side-project LP last week, and dropped this brand new track shortly afterwards.

The Gaslamp Killer ft. Miguel Atwood-Ferguson

Flange Face

Industrial electronica built around an oddly mechanic beat and disorientating instrumentation. A brutal taste of what to expect from his forthcoming full-length debut.

------

Domo Genesis & the Alchemist ft. Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples and Action Bronson

Elimination Chamber

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

Dream Lover

Puro Instinct's breezy, euphoric dream-pop will appeal to fans of bands such as Blood Orange and Friends.

------

Talk Normal

Bad Date

The first release from the Brooklyn noiseniks' new album is a mean and moody affair with plenty of scuzzy low-end.
