    On the A List

    beabadoobee – ‘I Wish I Was Stephen Malkmus’
    Bea Kristi’s right: being Stephen Malkmus would be pretty cool, right? ‘I Wish I Was Stephen Malkmus’, the rising Dirty Hit artist’s sort-of-ode to the Pavement frontman (and celebration of entering into her own “new blue-haired phase“), is a near-four minute emotional burst of quiet-loud guitar fuzz that’ll transport you right back to the halcyon alt-rock days of the 1990s. Malkmus himself has already voiced his approval of the number, writing on Twitter: “This tripzz me out”. Us too, Stephen. Us too.

    On the B List
    Georgia – ‘Never Let You Go’

    This fast-paced and insistent synth-pop creation from Georgia is a dizzying preview of the Londoner’s forthcoming new album ‘Seeking Thrills’ (set for release in January). Take our word for it: once you’ve heard ‘Never Let You Go’ whizz through your speakers on NME Radio, it’ll buzz around your head for days and days to come.

    Liam Gallagher – ‘Now That I’ve Found You’
    Speaking of earworm tunes, LG’s ‘Now That I’ve Found You’ is one of those immediate kind of songs that’ll revisit your thoughts throughout the rest of the day. “Now that I’ve fouuuund you, I won’t let go,” the track kindly informs you in advance as sprightly guitars chug away in the background, and, yup, into your head it goes. Good luck shaking this one off for a while.

    Free Nationals, JID, Kadhja Bonet & MIKNNA - 'On Sight'
    Anderson .Paak’s live band are an undeniably talented bunch, and their foray this year into releasing their own music has got off to a fine start with ‘Beauty & Essex’ and ‘Time’, the latter a collaboration with Kali Uchis and the late Mac Miller. The third Free Nationals single ‘On Sight’ continues this upward trend: a laidback, G-funk inspired-track that’s smooth, funky and effortlessly cool, it also contains a typically loquacious verse from the million-words-a-minute rap talent that is JID.

    On the C List
    Arlo Parks – ‘Second Guessing’

    West London newcomer Arlo Parks is quietly building momentum as a poetic songwriter through a string of stunning single releases. Parks’ latest, ‘Second Guessing’, is yet another slice of her affecting and rather melancholic brand of DIY pop. “It’s an exploration of the existential misery that comes from a desire to be successful in a way that pleases everyone,” Parks herself said of the track. “However, it’s also a song about strength and the possibility of self fulfilment”.

    DIIV – ‘Blankenship’
    The imminent return of DIIV has got us all very, very excited in the NME office — especially after we heard the rip-roaring ‘Blankenship’ for the first time. Just wait for that drum roll before all hell breaks loose at the 0:58 mark and you’ll quickly understand why we’ve gone so damn giddy about this track and the band’s upcoming third album ‘Deceiver’.

    Foals – ‘Into The Surf’
    ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2’ is just under three weeks away from release, so Yannis and co. have given us the soaring ‘Into The Surf’ to tide us over. Foals do love to deliver the occasional majestic slow-burner — think ‘Late Night’ on ‘Holy Fire’ or ‘A Knife In The Ocean’ on ‘What Went Down’ — and this fits rather nicely into their hands-aloft category of Big Songs™.

    Human Barbie – ‘We Disappeared’
    This pleasantly hazy Beatles and Shins-inspired, psych-folk offering from LA songwriter Christopher Leopold was a real labour of love — with the emphasis on the labour. Leopold described the recording process as “painstaking and deliberate” as he opted to self-record the track with 1/2″ analog tape so it could be “captured and mixed with 100% analog effects, reverb, and performance techniques”. Definitely worth a listen to on NME Radio, then.

    Model Man – ‘Beta’
    Finally this week we have Model Man, who describe their luscious, sample-heavy ‘Beta’ as being “about a love of imperfections. Capturing the journey and process, and not worrying about the end result.” The final version of the electronic production duo’s latest track actually shuffles along quite beautifully, with uplifting piano flourishes being the key component here.

    What’s new on the NME 1 and NME 2 playlists this week?
    by Hannah Mylrea
    October 07, 2019

    On the A List
    King Nun – ‘Bug’
    King Nun have just released their debut album ‘Mass’, an album that frontman Theo Polyzoides has said is him: “nailing myself to the cross, and saying ‘Just take everything’.” From it we’ve picked ‘Bug’ for the NME playlists, a hulking cut of roaring guitar riffs and stomping drums, which absolutely slaps.

    The Japanese House – ‘Something Has To Change’
    ‘Something Has To Change’ is Amber Bain’s (aka The Japanese House) first offering of new music since her excellent debut album ‘Good At Falling’ earlier this year. Taken from her upcoming EP of the same name, the new tune is a cut of The Japanese House’s gorgeous glitchy indietronica, this time combined with a killer pop melody and clapping beats.

    On the B List
    Chvrches – ‘Death Stranding’
    ‘Death Stranding’ is a classic Chvrches tune. Opening with shimmering synths and woozy, ethereal production, which then erupt into a massive sing-a-long chorus, it’s a beauty.

    Holy **** – ‘Luxe’ (ft. Alexis Taylor)
    ‘Luxe’ is Holy ****’s first new music in three years, and it’s a truly collaborative venture. It was born from a jam session they did as part of an encore at a live show, which they then sent to pal Four Tet along with some other demoes. Four Tet selected this as his favourite thing they’d done, suggesting it could be a smash, and he wasn’t wrong. Later in the process Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor took on the vocal responsibilities, and the results are the storming ‘Luxe’, a combination of vintage vocals, pounding club beats and cantering production. Good to have you back, guys.

    Matt Maltese – ‘Curl up & Die’
    Matt Maltese’s latest sees him battle heartbreak with his signature wit. Offering a brutal post-mortem of an ended relationship, he reflects on the time he would have “worshipped the towel you dried on/ there was a time when I’d kill all my friends for you”. Combining pithy lyrics with the soaring piano lines, it’s a brilliant new breed of heartbreak anthem.

    Michael Stipe – ‘Your Capricious Soul’
    ‘Your Capricious Soul’ is Michael Stipe’s first ever solo single since he left R.E.M. eight years ago. The tune, which opens with a driving bass line and commanding vocals that put the full emphasis on the rousing lyrics, will see all proceeds go to Extinction Rebellion, and the climate activist group inspired him to release the song as soon as possible instead of holding onto it.
    “Extinction Rebellion gave me the incentive to push the release and not wait,” Stipe explained. “Our relationship to the environment has been a lifelong concern, and I now feel hopeful—optimistic, even. I believe we can bring the kind of change needed to improve our beautiful planet earth, our standing and our place on it.”

    On the B List
    B Boys – ‘Instant Pace’
    If you’re a fan of Parquet Courts or Shame then you’ll love this one from New York trio B Boys. Mixing yelped vocals with razor-sharp riffs, it’s a pounding cut of punk-flecked rock.

    Bodega – ‘Knife On the Platter’
    Fusing a slinky bassline with half-shouted vocals and post punk riffs, the latest from Bodega is a stonker.

    Just Mustard – ‘Seven’
    Finally this week we’ve got the new one from Just Mustard, ‘Seven’. Blending hammering instrumentals with delicate vocals and a powerhouse rhythm section, it was a must add for the playlist.

    so, Hundredth , Dry Cleaning and Jerkcurb didn't qualify to playlist

    Actually, they did. They play them but for some reason didn't include them in the What's new... description.

    On the A List
    Alfie Templeman – ‘Used To Love’
    First up this week we’ve got the new one from Alfie Templeman. The teenage songwriter has a knack for creating tunes that combine woozy production (inspired by his love of prog rock) with angsty lyrics (often based on relationships in his favourite tv shows), and his latest ‘Used To Love’ is a stellar example of his trademark sound.

    King Princess – ‘Hit the Back’
    ‘Hit the Back’ is the latest glimpse we’ve had of King Princess’ debut album ‘Cheap Queen’ that’s out in a few weeks, and if the rest of the record is anything like this, we’ve got a lot to look forward to. With its ‘90s pop-flecked bridge that charges into the stonking, hook-laden chorus, it’s a beauty.

    Low Island – ‘Long Answer’
    Want to keep the summer vibes going even if it’s chucking it down outside? Then take a listen to Low Island’s latest. On ’Long Answer’ they fuse their jangling electronics with Brazilian grooves and Congolese guitar playing, and the results are a luminous cut of their shimmering sound.

    On the B List
    Angel Olsen – ‘Spring’
    Angel Olsen’s latest album has been on repeat in the NME office, so she was a must add for this week’s playlist. We’ve picked the gorgeous ‘Spring’ for NME Radio, a soaring slice of euphoric indie pop.

    Black Jazz Consortium – ‘Energies Collide’ ft. Ceri B
    Combining skittering house beats with ethereal vocals and hazy synths, the latest from Black Jazz Consortium is a stone cold banger.

    Travis Scott – ‘Highest In The Room’
    With its slinky Latin guitar riff and Scott’s flawless flow, the latest from the rapper is excellent.

    On the C List
    Caribou – ‘Home’
    Dan Snaith aka Caribou is back! ‘Home’ is the first new Caribou music in five years, and is soaked in the euphoric, kaleidoscopic sound that Snaith has perfected over the past six Caribou albums. Using a sample of Gloria Barnes’ gorgeous soul song ‘Home’, it’s a jubilant return.

    Field Music – ‘Only In A Man’s World’
    If you’re a fan of Battles’ off-kilter production or Prince’s sultry guitar riffs, give this one from Field Music a go. Taken from their upcoming record ‘Making A New World’ (which is a concept album based on the years after World War I), it’s a funk-laced slapper.

    No Rome – ‘Talk Nice’
    The latest from Dirty Hit signing No Rome is pop perfection. Stuffed full of fizzing hooks and sparkling production that fuses sparkling synths with overdrive guitars, it could be the best thing he’s released yet.

    Talk Show – ‘Ankle Deep (In a Warm Glass of Water)’
    Finally we’ve got the excellent new one from Talk Show. With its cavorting guitar riffs and howling vocals, it’s a jagged cut of post-punk. If you’re a fan of Shame or Idles give this one a try.

    On the A List
    Michael Kiwanuka – ‘Hero’

    First up on the playlist this week we have the latest tune from Michael Kiwanuka, ‘Hero’. On it he movingly “pays homage to some of the world’s most important history-changing heroes that were taken too soon due to violence” over slinky acoustic guitar riffs and lush instrumentals.

    On the B List
    Corridor – ‘Pow’

    Next up we have the new one from Montreal rockers Corridor. Taken from their upcoming third album ‘Junior’, ‘Pow’ is a twitchy slice stuffed full of galloping hi-hats, bleeping electronics and overdriven guitar riffs, all topped off with a hulking bassline.

    Nicolas Godin – ‘The Border’
    Nicolas Godin – otherwise known as one-half of Air – is back with a new solo track. Opening with sparse trickling synth lines, gradually robotic vocals and clinking percussion are added in, and the results are a beautiful – if eerie – soundscape.

    Nilüfer Yanya – ‘Heat Rises’
    The latest single to come from Yanya’s stellar debut album ‘Miss Universe’ is the excellent ‘Heat Rises’. Inspired by Kelis’ ‘Millionaire’, it canters away with whirring hi-hat beats (which run relentlessly all the way through the song) and a stomping bassline, with Yanya’s velvety vocals cutting over the top.

    Sassy 009 – ‘Maybe in the Summer’
    Fusing splintered beats with vibrating synths and whispered vocals, the latest from Sassy 009 is a glorious cut of house-flecked electronica.

    On the C List
    Beck – ‘Uneventful Days’

    Produced by Pharrell, Beck’s latest is a hazy slice of dream-pop. Boasting glittering production that includes chiming glockenspiel licks and a jittery bassline, it’s a stratospheric glimpse of his new album ‘Hyperspace’

    Galcher Lustwerk – ‘Cig Angel (Dance Mix)’
    Mixing the ambient sounds of the original with chugging dance-beats, this new mix of Galcher Lustwerk’s ‘Cig Angel’ is a beauty.

    Kraak & Smaak – ‘Sommeron’ (ft. Imugi)
    If you’re a fan of Tom Misch or Kamasi Washington give this new one from Kraak & Smaak a try. Combining lilting lo-fi instrumentals with a strutting brass riff and dreamy vocals, it’s a total delight.

    Pusha T – ‘Puppets (Succession Remix)’
    Pusha T has teamed up with Emmy winning composer Nicholas Britell for his latest tune ‘Puppets’. On it, he raps over the theme for television show ‘Succession’, adding his legendary flow to the dramatic, orchestral riff.

    Yungblud – ‘Original Me’ ft. Dan Reynolds
    Finally this week we’ve got Yungblud’s team-up with Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds. On it the two vocalists trade bars that tackle not feeling like you’re good enough over thumping beats and pop-punk flecked guitars, and it’s mega.

    On the A List
    The 1975 – ‘Frail State of Mind’
    First up on the playlist this week we have the new one from The 1975. The latest glimpse at next year’s album ‘Notes On a Conditional Form’ and the follow up to the hulking, punk-flecked ‘People’ is infused with the trappy beats and flickering synths that appeared on ‘I Like America & America Likes Me’. With its ambient soundscapes and ethereal vocals, it’s a beauty.

    On the B List
    Easy Life – ‘Nice Guys’
    The latest from the Leicester five-piece is a belter. Combining the bouncing funk of Anderson .Paak with jangling production and skittering guitar licks, it’s a joyous slice of their trademark sound.

    Beabadoobee – ‘Space Cadet’
    Beabadoobee’s brilliant EP ‘Space Cadet’ dropped a few weeks ago, and we’ve picked the title track for the NME Radio playlist this week. Whilst Bea previously made her name creating intimate acoustic tunes, for her latest release she’s amped things up a notch with grungey guitars and a driving rhythm section. ‘Space Cadet’ is a glorious cut of her revamped sound, which sees the young artist combine the cosy warmth of her past releases with boisterous new sounds.

    On the C List
    Battles – ‘Izm’ (feat. Shabazz Palaces)

    Taken from Battles latest record ‘Juice B Crypts’, ‘Izm’ is a glittering fusion of crunchy Nintendo beats, Shabazz Palaces’ elegant flow and mathy riffs. Brilliantly weird, it’s a highlight of the band’s excellent new album.

    Nasty Cherry – ‘Music With Your Dad’
    Mixing rocky ‘80s influences with trendy, electronic sounds, Nasty Cherry’s latest is wickedly fun.

    Foals – ‘Like Lightning’
    This cut from Foals’ is big, brazen and hella fun. With its gigantic riffs, stonking bassline and Yannis’ howling vocals, it’s all set to be a live favourite.

    Monsune – ‘Outta My Mind’
    If you like Still Woozy or Tame Impala, then give this new one from Monsune a go. Stuffed full of hazy electronics and psychedelic guitar lines, it’s a kaleidoscopic delight.

    On the A List
    HMLTD – ‘The West Is Dead’

    First up on the playlist this week we’ve got the new one from HMLTD. The art-pop collective announced their debut album last week, and dropped the glitchy, galloping ‘The West Is Dead’ alongside the reveal. With its dizzy electronics and thumping bass line, it’s a brilliantly frantic offering.

    Tame Impala – ‘It Might Be Time’
    With its woozy synth licks and pounding piano riff, the new one from Tame Impala is a total beauty.

    On the B List
    Arlo Parks – ‘Sophie’

    ‘Sophie’, in Arlo Parks’ own words, is a “song about crumbling under expectations and feeling helpless, but with a persistent, quiet sense of hope underpinning it.” With its gorgeous lilting acoustic guitar licks and gentle hi-hat beats which Parks’ soaring vocals float on top off, it’s a beautiful, hope filled tune.

    Haim – ‘Now I’m In It’
    Haim’s latest is a belter. After the Lou Reed inspired ‘Summer Girl’, ‘Now I’m In It’ feels like a return to the band’s hook-laden indie-pop. Boasting a hella catchy chorus and slick whispered vocals, it’s an exciting glimpse of the band’s third album.

    Kanye West – ‘Everything We Need’ (ft. Ty Dolla $ign & Ant Clemons)
    Kanye’s jubilant gospel album ‘Jesus Is King’ is stuffed full of euphoric cuts, but it’s ‘Everything We Need’ we’ve chosen for the playlist. Opening with gorgeous layered vocals that skitter into the slick verse, it’s a short but sweet example of Kanye’s true brilliance.

    On the C List
    Coldplay – ‘Orphans’

    Coldplay returned a few weeks ago with two tracks from their upcoming double album ‘Everyday Life’, and it’s ‘Orphans’ we’ve chosen for the NME playlists. Fusing the massive pop hooks of previous albums ‘Mylo Xyloto’ and ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ with the jangling indie sensibilities of older offerings, it’s huge.

    King Princess – ‘Homegirl’
    With its twinkling piano lines and King Princess’ honeyed vocals, ‘Homegirl’ is an impossibly lovely offering from the artist’s brilliant debut album ‘Cheap Queen’.

    Sløtface – ‘S.U.C.C.E.S.S.’
    Finally on this week’s playlist we’ve got the new one from Sløtface. With its galloping drums and raucous yelping vocals, it’s a blistering slice from the Norwegian pop punks.

    On the A List
    Mura Masa ft. Slowthai – ‘Deal Wiv It’
    First on the playlist this week we’ve got the latest collaboration from Mura Masa and Slowthai. A world away from the jangly funk-flecked electronics of Mura Masa’s debut, it instead channels the chaotic energy of The Streets with its hulking bass line and Slowthai’s politically charged lyrics, and it’s huge.

    Megan Thee Stallion & VickeeLo – ‘Ride Or Die’
    Next up we’ve got the new one from Megan Thee Stallion and VickeeLo. Taken from the soundtrack to Queen & Slim, it’s a blistering two minutes of fast-talking bars over a deliciously catchy riff. Just try and get the recurring hook out of your head.

    On the B List
    FARR – ‘Technicolour’
    FARR, the musical project of UK producer Linden Jay and LA-based vocalist Romeo, have created a woozy slice of R&B in their latest offering ‘Technicolour’. Opening with a lilting guitar, gradually the subtle beats are built up, eventually emerging in a dreamy chill-out jam.

    Greentea Peng – ‘Sane’
    Taken from the South London songwriter’s latest EP ‘Rising’, ‘Sane’ is a lowkey banger. Fusing hip-hop beats with clinking production and powerful vocals, it’s an exciting glimpse of what the rising talent has to offer.

    Sorry – ‘Right Round the Clock’
    Think Sorry’s latest tune sounds familiar? That’s because midway through there’s a neat pastiche of Tears For Fears’ ‘Mad World’. With its whirring chorus and growling post-punk guitars, this could be one of the best things the London band have put out.

    On the C List
    Alfie Templeman – ‘Don’t Go Wasting Time’
    First on the C List we have the new one from Alfie Templeman. The teenager’s latest is a kaleidoscopic blend of psych-flecked riffs, lovelorn lyrics and a mega, sing-a-long chorus.

    FKA twigs – ‘sad day’
    FKA twigs new record ‘Magdalene’ is a panoramic triumph filled with expansive art-pop tunes. For the playlist we’ve picked ‘sad day’ a soaring cut of jittering drum and bass beats, hazy electronics and ethereal vocals, and it’s a total beauty.

    Haiku Hands – ‘Onset’ (feat. Mad Zach)
    Need a new workout anthem? Then try Haiku Hands’ ‘Onset’ out. With its pounding bass, shouted vocals and cantering beats, this is the sound of you smashing your personal best in the gym.

    Hazel English – ‘Shaking’
    ‘Shaking’ is Hazel English’s first new tune since 2017. Channelling the ’60s with its glorious power-pop chorus and jangling guitars, it’s good to have her back.
