The Playlist: Yo La Tengo/ A$AP Rocky/ Wavves/ London Grammer/ Don Adora’e AKA Sonny Smith

  • @johnmatthewhall

Yo La Tengo


On their forthcoming album, 'Fade', YLT insisted they would ditch their prog-influenced songs and focus on less sprawling tracks. "Ohm" is a prime example of that shift.


A$AP Rocky

Long Live A$AP

Taken from his major label debut, "Long Live A$AP" is a slick update on the rapper's laid-back hip-hop.



Sail to the Sun

Nathan Williams returns to his Wavves project after two releases under the Sweet Valley moniker. This track is taken from his forthcoming self-released LP and produced by Rihanna hit-maker John Hill.


London Grammer

Hey Now

Bass and organ throb throughout this track, forging a warm path through the otherwise icy atmospherics.


Don Adora'e AKA Sonny Smith

If You Don't Make a Change

Taken from the final volume of his 100 Records project, (in which he's created a raft of fictional characters) Smith here performs as protest singer Don Adora'e.
