FKA twigs
M3LL155X

Following on from the critical success of her debut album, LP 1, FKA Twigs goes all Aphex Twin with the title of her new EP, M3LL155X. Lyrically she deals with feminist and political issues. FKA Twigs has directed videos for four of the songs on the EP which are to be viewed as one continuous piece of work. The whole thing makes for a strong statement of her intent as an artist.

FKA twigs
Magdalene

One of the most anticipated sophomore album releases of the decade is finally upon us! Released over half a decade ago, Tahliah Debrett Barnett’s debut FKA twigs album LP1 was one of the most thrillingly original and forward-thinking pop releases in years, its shifting rhythms and immersive soundscapes informing a great deal of subsequent music. The intervening years have seen Barnett suffer physical and emotional upheaval, something that’s informed the sound and themes of Magdalene. Features production from Nicolas Jaar.

FKA twigs
EP1

Think back to 2012, when the remarkable FKA twigs made her debut release. You probably didn’t pick up EP 1 at the time because of it’s highly limited nature, but now you can grab it once more. The slinky four-track EP has been re-pressed to wax by the Young Turks label, and it sounds entirely high-grade. The first steps of a major modern artist.

Kamasi Washington
Heaven and Earth

Oh my God he is walking on water whilst carrying a saxophone. To some Kamasi Washington is the sort of person who could walk on water with his blend of psychedelic cosmic jazz and horn workouts. His first album 'The Epic' was a hell of a thing and 'Heaven & Earth' which is split into two bits ('Heaven'/'Earth') is bound to be just as ambitious and will further crown him as the lord of modern psychedelic jazz. 

FKA twigs
LP 1

Former Jessie J dancer releases her debut prosaicly titled album. Is it the future of r&b or a trendified Beyonce rip off? Mike will be along soon to tell you.   Preface Lights On Two Weeks Hours Pendulum Video Girl Numbers Closer Give Up Kicks

FKA twigs
EP2

This is the one innit? The much sought- after EP that continued the road from the debut 'EP1' to the recent album everyone's banging on about. Liking this better than the album, its dark and ethereal dubstep and twisted R&B. Sorta scary. Anyway this is a re-press of a record you could buy absolutely nowhere in recent months. Get it before it goes again.  

Kamasi Washington
Harmony of Difference

The first new music from cosmic jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington since his much lauded 'The Epic'. This follow up also seems to be epic despite it's short length being a six part suite exploring the musical technique known as 'counterpoint'. There are 5 unique components which when blended create a sixth track. Clever lad. 

The xx
On Hold

It looks like The xx are at it again, ready to do to dance music all that they did to indie. The iron grip of Jamie xx tightens even more as the group moves to increasingly dancier territories, this time over a chopped Hall and Oates vocal. This tale of a relationship gone awry comes in a silver mirror sleeve so you can watch yourself ugly cry while listening to it.

Sampha
Process

He's had his finger in an impressive selection of pies for the last 5 or 6 years, and that's why it may come as a surprise that South London-born producer/singer/songwriter Sampha is only just releasing his first full length LP. After an outstanding recent feature on Solange's "A Seat At The Table", Process is his own creation, and it's pretty exciting. "Blood On Me" is the teaser single, a potent electronic blend of soul, pop and hip-hop with shuffling beats, gorgeous harmonies and that distinctive, powerful-yet-delicate voice that Sampha has become so sought-after for. Released as Vinyl LP and CD on the Young Turks label.

The xx
I See You

Are you ready to weep? Here come sad Londoners the XX with a brand new album and following on from Jamie's solo success it sounds like they've brought some upbeat dance floor energy into their misery. Hall and Oates sampling lead single 'On Hold' shows them sounding relatively upbeat.  Comes on all sorts of different formats. 

Koreless
TT / Love

Koreless turn out two new tracks on the Young Turks label. TT / Love finds the Koreless sound sidestepping away from the big sweeping cinematic nature of recent releases, instead delving head-first back into the club environment. These are two big tracks, though the radically cut-up vocal on Love shows that this doesn’t mean a drop in imagination.

Jamie xx
In Colour

In Colour is the debut album by Jamie xx, from the Mercury Music Prize winning band, The xx. Over the past six years Jamie xx has worked with and re-worked the likes of Radiohead, Alicia Keys and Florence & The Machine but his crowning glory must be the reworking of Gil Scott Heron’s I’m New Here album. In Colour will please fans of his collaborative efforts and includes, Girl, Sleep Sound and Loud Places. The latter is the forthcoming single.

SBTRKT
Wonder Where We Land

Electronic musician and conjurer of dubstep/future garage tricks Aaron Jerome returns for 'Wonder Where We Land', his second full-length record as SBTRKT. As per his self-titled debut, the record is a gleefully collaborative affair, featuring lots and lots of Sampha, as ever, along with old friend Jessie Ware. There's also a track with Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend -- seriously, though -- and is that A$AP Ferg on the final track?

The xx
Coexist

Coexist was the second album by very quiet Londoners the XX and continues their self-titled debut's narrow world view of minimalist arrangements and whispered vocals musing on relationship breakdowns. Jamie Smith's beats and electronics start to get more pronounced on this record but remain subtle enough not to override the feeling you are listening to a troubled couple's pillow talk.
