The Playlist: Ty Segall Band / Richard Hawley / Karima Francis / Metric / Squarepusher / Cassie / PS I Love You
Ty Segall Band
Deep, dark and heavy prog-punk. Bloated basslines and crunchy guitars swarm all over Segall's ice-cool vocals.
She Brings the Sunlight
Majestic opening track from blissfully psychedelic new album Standing at the Sky's Edge.
Emotive title track from the Blackpool singer-songwriter's upcoming album; its raw lyrics and passionate delivery make her one to watch.
Youth Without Youth
This first single from the band's forthcoming fifth album is a fuzzy, bombastic glam rocker.
Typically off-kilter electronica from Tom Jenkinson. Warped bass and bleepy keys abound.
King of Hearts (Richard X Remix)
The single has been around for months, but X's euphoric-yet-melancholic mix turns the basic pop into something special.
PS I Love You
This couldn't be more Pixies-esque if it tried. From the downbeat, jangly guitars to the emotive, yelping vocals, 'Don't Go' has the Bay Staters' influence all over it.
