Our Prime Cuts post delivers to you 5 fresh tracks, songs that got one of our Writers excited in the week. We try and select a handful of warm tracks that you may well not have heard before. This week, Sarah took control of Prime Cuts and shares with you an ecclectic mix of fine music from the completely bonkers Miley Cryus to the constantly evolving Hot Chip, who are in the midst of returning with a much anticipated new studio album.
Moments Of The Replacements
This is a suprising collaboration, but a well suited one. Painfully earnest when you look at the history of the musicians singing this classic Replacements cover, but the cover itself works, so all is well.
Moments Santigold, Katy Perry
For M.I.A this is pretty dull, but the deep bass and dystopian lyrics are pretty addictive.
Cut Used To feat. Texture Like Sun
Moments SAFIA, Kate Bush, Florence & The Machine
Known for her ethereal soundscapes, stirring lyrics and haunting vocals, Eliza’s new delivery of music brings that same heartfelt electro-dreaminess paired with some fresh upbeat synth driven indie-pop melodies to tap your toes to.
Moments Neneh Cherry, Janelle Monae, Juce
A cool, edgy, dystopian ode to an excessive city – a Neneh Cherry for a new generation?
Cut So Much Further To Go
Moments Roxy Music, The Knife
Possibly the closest Hot Chip will get to a classic love ballad? Toned down feel good and still trademark ‘Chip.
