Single Of The Week
Wet Lips : Can’t Take It Anymore
A missile of an anthem buckling at the pop rivets, Can’t Take It Anymore is a focussed, powerful blast of inspired energy. Ittalks the talk, walks the walk, and doesn’t put up with any shit in the process. It’s music with a simple but important message.
Native Cats : Soft Chambers
A message of hope through uncertainty, Soft Chambers sees Chloe Allison Escott nestle above skittish bassline slink and scattershot snare, briefly breaking the fourth wall. It’s a dynamic that requires alertness. Alertness is good, sometimes.
Syd : All About Me
Making a play to join Franky Ocean on the top-tier echelon of Odd Future alumni, The Internet’s Syd goes solo for the smoky-cool All About Me. No huge hooks – it doesn’t really need it. Measured, with a potent sentiment.
Sampha : (No One Knows Me) Like The Piano
Parentheses at the beginning of a song title, don’t really see it happen that much in this day and age. Well done for keeping the torch burning, Sampha. The track is a beaut, personal balladry done with class.
