Here's what our music editor has been sticking in his tabs this month...

Alice Short – Harvey Weinstein is a Prick

Over sparse, unsettling and minimal music, the rapper takes the film producer to task and, with brutal honesty, tells it like it is.

Elmz XIX – Sound Like This

Up-and-coming rapper and producer makes playful boasts, while also featuring best use of airhorn this side of a Tim Westwood radio show.

In Isolation – TRAPPIST 1 (A Space Anthem)

The perennial mopers’ new one is a widescreen romantic ode to a red dwarf star. It shouldn’t work, but it does, coming off like Interpol with a PhD.

One Giant Causeway – The Best Things

Anguished alternative rock from the West Bridgford five-piece who know how to make a stadium-sized racket.

Richard Snow – Slip On Through

“Long lost” faithful rendition of Beach Boys psych r‘n’b groover that swings in similar fashion to the original.

Georgie – Hard Times

The first new music we’ve had from the NG Stevie Nicks in ages sees her release a double A-side, the first of which is this mellow introspective piano number.

Listen to the tune on Spotify.  

The Rainbow Stripes – Can’t Stop Counting the Rainbows

Fuzzy blues rock made for kids. Like The White Stripes if they soundtracked Sesame Street.

Lone – Arc

With each release, the producer seems to add more colour and sounds to his musical palette. Arc is like flipping through a Dulux Colour chart, with each new page conjuring up new sensations.
