After the silly season, looks like we have several artists that decided to team up for bigger projects and great records.
We have new songs from Frank Ocean (finally!), Róisín Murphy, El Perro Del Mar, Nicolas Jaar and Wilco. And even an unreleased track from The White Stripes, “City Lights”.
On this MW04 you will find liv, a new supergroup formed by Lykke Li with Miike Snow members Andrew Wyatt and Pontus Winnberg, Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John, and the producer Jeff Bhasker and also a new project from Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and the Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser, Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam.
But that’s not all, after ten years without releasing a new LP, the French band Cassius is back with a new record and full hand of collaborations, where you can find the song “Fell Like Me”, featuring Cat Power.
And it was impossible to make this playlist without mentioning one of the best albums of the year. Solange released her third studio album, A Seat at the Table, on September 30 and it couldn’t be better. In the words of Julianne Escobedo Shepherd, from Pitchfork, “Solange’s new record is stunning, a thematically unified and musically adventurous statement on the pain and joy of black womanhood.”
