tmrw presents you New Music Friday, but in the only way you can be bothered to digest it; in ten words or less. This week, we have the best bits from the two excellent albums made by Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato, as well as top tunes from Banks and Terror Jr, who both seem like they’re on the verge of making the best music of their careers.
BANKS – ‘UNDERDOG’
Perky! Banks is on the cusp of making a masterpiece.
DEMI LOVATO – ‘DADDY ISSUES’
The word ‘insatiable’ is said really pleasingly here.
TERROR JR – ‘FIGHT AND FUCK’
Terror Jr. are absolutely fucking amazing.
MILEY CYRUS – THINKIN’
‘Younger Now’ is Miley’s best and most important album.
LIAM GALLAGHER – ‘GREEDY SOUL’
Even I can admit LG is a bit of a legend.
BETSY – ‘LOST AND FOUND’
We support the best Welsh pop star since Charlotte Church
JOAN – ‘LOVE SOMEBODY LIKE YOU’
In the best way, an album track from the 1975
LAUREN FAITH – ‘RUSH’
A naughty little baseline on this one, lads.
MAJID JORDAN – ‘MY IMAGINATION’ feat. DVSN
Not a cover of that song from Willy Wonka.
FIRST AID KIT – ‘IT’S A SHAME’
Better than most of the new Shania album.
FENNE LILY – ‘THREE OH NINE’
Little bit Florence, a little bit Kate, a lot of guitar
DISCIPLES – ‘JEALOUSY’
Disciples played my Grad Ball this year, so there’s that.
POM POKO – ‘YOU’LL BE FINE’
This really goes off just a bit, you know.
KREPT AND KONAN – ‘FOR ME’
Restraint and subtlety is good sometimes, isn’t it.
PETITE BISCUIT – ‘WATERFALL’
Some lovely distorted vocals for a Friday morning.
EDEN – ‘START//END’
I thought this was Frank Ocean at first.
WOLF ALICE – ‘SPACE AND TIME’
I shouldn’t like Wolf Alice, but I kind of do?
ILY – ‘YOUR LOVE’
A strange and wonderful experiment of a song
PRETTYMUCH – ‘TEACHER’
Salvaged only by a Tinashe reference.
J BALVIN – ‘MI GENTE’ feat. WILLY WILLIAMS and BEYONCÉ
That’s your lot for this week. Thanks Beyoncé, see you in two years for your next surprise release!
