THE GIG
Young Fathers - London, Birthdays


Anticon signing Young Fathers’ ‘TAPE TWO’ is right up there with the year’s best in EPs, although it plays out more like a mini-album slash bold manifesto. It’s a declaration of the Scots’ boldest intentions, circuiting their daring hip-hop-meets-cutting-pop technique with barely a bum note. Future ‘How June Is Now’ guest Law supports.

THE SONG
Kheyra - Royalty


‘I know I am an endangered species’ runs one lyric in the middle of DC-based Kheyra’s debut track. Endangered in the sense that few can even aspire to this kind of standard. ‘Royalty’ is aware of its high standing, from the title to the attitude that’s so poignant from the off. This registers as one of the most confident debut offerings in months, capable of turning heads from giddy bloggers to actual-people-wot-buy-music.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Swimming Lessons - Double


Swimming Lessons, the solo project of Leeds based Ben Lewis, announced himself last year with a brilliant debut EP following the demise of his last group Shark Teeth. The follow up single ‘Double’, recorded with MJ (Hookworms) at Suburban Home Studios, is a warm four minutes of uplifting and exultant ambience which saunters through looping landscapes, projecting Lewis’ jubilant echoed vocals to the forefront of a euphoric journey in experimental pop pleasure.
