Hello Lambert my old friend/ it’s time for your five tunes again/ please rectify this sound… of silence.
Petit Biscuit, Waterfall feat. Panama
Seventeen-year-old French producer Petit Biscuit has released the first single from his debut album, Presence, out November 10 (which is also his 18th birthday, fancy that). This song perfectly sums up my week – it’s rousing but chilled. As in, I wanted to go to the gym but I also wanted to lay in a park with my dog and drink tinnies. Ten points if you can guess which one I chose. Bon Appetit.
Hayden James, Numb feat. GRAACE
Ever been hugged by a palm tree? Neither, but I imagine this is exactly what it feels like, as Hayden James maintains his 100% banger record with Numb featuring GRAACE. Show me a person who hasn’t had a good time listening to the Sydney producer and I will show you a liar.
The Breeders, Wait In The Car
Ninties alt-rock idols The Breeders are back with their first song since 2009’s EP, Fate To Fatal. Wait In The Car is exactly what you’d expect from the band: brash, dry, rawboned rock clocking in at just under two minutes. The single is being released on three different limited edition 7” records.
Bec Sandridge, I’ll Never Want A BF
With every song that Bec Sandridge releases she takes one step closer to becoming the Aussie St. Vincent. While we’re putting Sando up with the best, I’ll throw another comparison out there: I’ll Never Want A BF is the new Single Ladies – but like, if you would rather drink a six-pack instead of a bottle of Dom. Banger.
Stormzy, 4PM In London
Following a hugely successful Splendour In The Grass campaign and a sold-out national tour, the Wicked Skengman has dropped a companion piece to Drake’s 4PM In Calabasas out of nowhere, and it’s four-and-a-half minutes of Stormzy spitting bar after grimy bar. I couldn’t pick which version I liked better, so I reached out to someone who has never given me a wrong answer before.
The original from Wheelchair Jimmy was released via his OVO Sound Radio show in 2016.
