The particular brand of electronic-jazz-slash-instrumental hip-hop peddled by Toronto four-piece BADBADNOTGOOD has always been rather idiosyncratic – hardly surprising, given their origins covering and reimagining artists like Tyler, The Creator. There’s no trace of that mimicry in their current output however, for the group has refined that combination of genre into a sound that is truly […]

A few weeks ago, a track called Lifted by Palmistry – aka Benjy Keating – went down rather well. And rightly so, as it was a leftfield bedroom effort that took on dancehall tropes and mixed them with a woozy vibe of intoxication, swaying ‘like this, like that’ as Keating sings. But repeating that trick […]

For any idiot asking the question of whether Maxwell still has a place in contemporary R&B-soul, have a listen to the opening track of blackSUMMERS’night. On All The Ways Love Can Feel he and his brass-backing take soul to places we haven’t heard in ages, that falsetto blending so deeply with the light jazz feel and […]

For the best part of the last fortnight, the Howard Assembly Room has played host to the Yorkshire Festival and its Songlines Series.  Already four rather exceptional, musically and geographically diverse artists have graced the boards of this beautiful performance space within the Grand Theatre, Leeds: there has been the thrilling sound of Mbongwana Star […]

We already know that Kelela has one of the best EPs of the year. But Christ alive aren’t her features just as brilliant. It helps when you have the immaculate production of Clams Casino at the helm, who keeps the proceedings understated, mixing delicate tribal drum patterns with flotation-tank ambience. Short version: A Breath Away […]

So heyyyy, meet Rainsford aka Rainey Qualley, aka a new LA popstar we quite like. Her debut track S.I.D. (Sunshine in December) is pretty nifty – it ebbs and flows like the waves on the shore of her Californian home, with Qualley’s voice the sonorous thread keeping it all 100. Check it out below.
