The Playlist: Ty Segall Band / Richard Hawley / Karima Francis / Metric / Squarepusher / Cassie / PS I Love You

 

 

Ty Segall Band

Wave Goodbye

Deep, dark and heavy prog-punk. Bloated basslines and crunchy guitars swarm all over Segall's ice-cool vocals.

Richard Hawley

She Brings the Sunlight

Majestic opening track from blissfully psychedelic new album Standing at the Sky's Edge.

Karima Francis

The Remedy

Emotive title track from the Blackpool singer-songwriter's upcoming album; its raw lyrics and passionate delivery make her one to watch.

Metric

Youth Without Youth

This first single from the band's forthcoming fifth album is a fuzzy, bombastic glam rocker.

Squarepusher

Drax 2

Typically off-kilter electronica from Tom Jenkinson. Warped bass and bleepy keys abound.

Cassie

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

Don't Go

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.
