May 2015’s Playlist

Another month has come and gone, leaving us only with fond memories and excellent music! May was a month like this. Here are the highlights:

 

 

Avalanche Party teased their new EP by releasing the video for title track Revolution. It’s everything we’ve come to expect from these North East guitar worriers!

 

 

Django Django retrun with easy second album. While it’s not as ground breaking and inventive as their debut, it is a hell of a lot of fun!

 

 

Andreya Triana also returned with second album. Her debut was a classic slice of UK soul, Giants has more of an electro pop twist. Defintley worth checking out!

 

 

Electro classical artist Digitonal released first album in seven years. It’s just as good as their previous and makes you wish Andrew Dobson had got his act together sooner! Only joking Andy, this was definitely worth the wait.

 

 

May was great month for jazz. Kamsai Washington released his 172 minute debut. It’s mad as fuck, but insanely listenable. Binker and Moses released their debut and show that 2015 definitely needs a few jazz album!

 

 

Art is Hard Records continued their Hand Cut Record Club with releases by Dignan Porch and Sulky Boy. Both have not sold out, but check out the soundcloud for a listen though. They also found time to team up with Reeks of Effort for another King of Cats album. On top of that they put out the lo-fi as shit debut album by Flout.

 

 

Wiley released Chasing the Art. This is everything we’ve come to expect from E3’s grime legend.

 

 

Joanna Gruesome showed that less is more with easy second album. It’s loud, fast and amazing.

 

 

Sasha Siem played a blistering set at the Great Escape in Brighton.

 

 

Matt Loveridge finally out out the new Gnar Hest album. It’s the best soundtrack to a video game that doesn’t exist.

 

 

West London’s Boys have the perfect soundtrack to you summer.

 

 

Those excellent people at Killing Moon have released the new EP by Brighton’s Fickle Friends.

 

 

Experimental London trio Yak showed they’re worth all the hype with new EP Plastic People. It’s bloody wicked!

 

 

Odd Rival announced that their debut EP will be out in July. Literally counting down the days…

 

 

June is right round the corner, and you’ve got to be bloody good to try and better May! The gauntlet has been thrown down…
