Things We Love This Week

2

Good day to you. Another week in the can as we inexorably march towards the supermarkets getting the Christmas decorations out. Almost the end of October, after all. It’s been a good seven days for new music, though, some of which you can pluck from the internet ether for zero of your pounds. Here are the things we love this week…

Run The Jewels 2

This was posted online overnight and first impressions are that it’s an unremitting monster of a record. Its predecessor made our top 10 hip-hop releases of last year, but this might give it a run for its money. Go here to get it.

Franz Nicolay – To Us, The Beautiful!

The first taste of Franz Nicolay’s new record, which is out in January through Silver Sprocket. A ramshackle treat.

 Pianos Become The Teeth – Keep You

These Baltimore natives are streaming their new album over at Pitchfork. It’s out on Epitaph next week and comes heartily recommended by us.
