This is the first of a new series called “Songs of the Week”. It will be a weekly round-up of all of the songs that caught my attention this week. Nice and simple, huh?!
There will be mostly newly released records, and as independently sourced as possible—although I shan’t rule out throwing in some older stuff that I have stumbled across recently.

- Gimmie Gimme ~ IGBO (self-released, New York)
- Flapping Wings – Cicada (flau, Taiwan)
- Gardenia ~ Iggy Pop & Josh Homme (Loma Vista, California)
- Sitting By The Radio ~ Adrian Younge (Linear Labs, Los Angeles)
- Psy – Jaisu (Astral Black, Glasgow)
- It Means I Love You ~ Jessy Lanza (Hyperdub, Ontario)
- Voodoo In My Blood ~ Massive Attack and Young Fathers (Virgin Records, Bristol)

Sound cloud only:
