Spindle Selects: Tracks of the Week

Thursday 22 December 2016

More new music for you to inhale before Christmas is officially upon us!

Tiggs Da Author Ft Wretch 32 & Avelino – Swear Down (Remix)

Tiggs teams up with top UK rappers and fellow Londoners Wretch 32 and Avelino for this fresh take of his summer track ‘Swear Down’. Can’t help but only love this as it’s such a feel good track! Tiggs latest EP ‘Glenville Grove’ is definitely worth a listen too which was recently released.

FEMME – Cry Cry Cry

To carry on from previous years, FEMME has brought us another unique Christmas song! This year she reflects on the highs and the lowest lows, paying tribute to the many incredible stars we have lost. A great summery of such a crazy year we have witnessed, let’s hope 2017 is brighter.

Goldlink Ft Brent Faiyaz & Shy Glizzy – Crew

Washington D.C. rapper Goldlink releases single ‘Crew’, a mix of a soulful R&B hook provided by singer Brent Faiyaz with slick rapped verses from Goldlink himself and Shy Glizzy over a slow groove production. Worth a listen.

Raleigh Ritchie – Liability

Taken from his recently released EP ‘Mind The Gap’ which includes ‘Unicorn Loev’, the EP is said to be a epilogue to his latest album ’You’re A Man Now, Boy’. Although these tracks unfortunately didn’t make the cut to be on album, Raleigh still wanted to release them as his last say before the year ended. ’Liability’ is surely a gem.

Sinead Harnett – Rather Be With You

Produced by OddChild’s Chris Loco and Snakehips, Sinead gives us the visual for her second single ‘Rather Be With You’ which is from her self titled EP. A beautiful track that makes you reminisce about those warm feelings you get at the beginning of a budding relationship and being totally in love.

Pia Mia – We Should Be Together

It was beginning to look a lot like tumbleweed when we hadn’t heard from Pia Mia, but to round off the year the 20-year-old singer just released her new song “We Should Be Together” and it’s our new favourite slow jam.

Blood Orange – Better Than Me

Blood Orange’s “Better Than Me”, which features Carly Rae Jepsen, has now been given a video. Directed by Blood Orange (Dev Hynes) and choreographed by Juri Onuki, “Better Than Me” appeared on the phenomenally well-received Freetown Sound which was released earlier this year.

The Jesus and Mary Chain – Amputation

The Jesus And Mary Chain are set to release their long-awaited new album ‘Damage and Joy’ on March 24th. The album is their first since ‘Munki’ was released back in the summer of 1998. The album commences with ‘Amputation’, in which waves of distorted guitar and Jim’s insouciant vocal delivery collide to create a hypnotic track.

Bear’s Den – Berlin

Bear’s Den released a surprise new song in advance of their special Christmas charity show last week. The song, ‘Berlin’, was written during sessions for the band’s Top 10 album, ‘Red Earth & Pouring Rain’, and was recorded last month when the band had a short break in a hectic year of touring.

Chance The Rapper & Jeremih – Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama’ Mixtape

A nice surprise for all Chance and Jeremih fans, the Chicagoans surprise released their festive mixtape earlier today with no warning but only a post on their socials. The mixtape has features from comedian Hannibal Buress, Nonam and Lud Floe and is sure to get you into the Christmas spirit.
