I love MIA, especially when she’s leaving the gingers be and just focusing on the music. The latest track to leak from the forthcoming album is ‘XXXO’. It’s not an easy first listen but I’m loving it.
I expected the MGMT album to be the one that took over my life in 2010, as it has turned out its looking like THE FOALS, ‘Miami’ is another quality piece of music to seal the case that Oxford didn’t just fluke it with Radiohead.
I like the (if this isn’t a total contradiction) simultaneously dark and soft nature of ‘The XX doing a remix of a Portishead tribute band made up of water molecules’ esque vibes of MOUNT KIMBIE and their track ‘Maybes’. Another track that’s pushing things forward.
