This Week in Records


As exam season comes to a close, the music industry is fluttering with new releases for us to focus on. Read our top picks of this week’s releases, below.

New York duo Chairlift’s follow up to 2012’s Something will be released this week. Moth was headed by the release of ‘Ch-Ching’, their first release in three years, which dropped last October. The album is set to provide well constructed, genre-bending strangeness. Out via Columbia. 

Adore Life is the sophomore album from Savages, following 2012’s Silence Yourself. It was teased by the release of a video featuring Henry Rollins reading from Jazz Cleopatra: Josephine Baker in her Time by Phyllis Rose. The album was mixed in Copenhagen by Trentemøller. Out via Matador. 

Suede’s seventh studio album comes in the form of Night Thoughts. Produced by longtime collaborator Ed Buller, the album will also be accompanied by a full length feature film, directed by Roger Sargent. Out via Suede Ltd.

Electronic Brit duo AlunaGeorge are releasing ‘I’m In Control’ this Friday. AlunaGeorge ranked highly in the charts three years ago with hits ‘You Know You Like It’ and ‘Attracting Flies’. Their latest single ‘Supernatural’ didn’t have as much success as previous releases, but hopes are high for the future of the band. Out Via Interscope/Island.

GLADES will also be releasing ‘Drive’. New to the music scene and already with singles ‘Falling Away’ and ‘Her (Loving You)’, ‘Drive’ is set to be an anthem. Previous releases have soaring vocals and a chilled electronic sound perfect for a lazy Sunday or a long drive; it’s all in the name.  Out Via (independent).

Set to be a club hit, Jacob Plant is releasing ‘Reflections’ featuring Example. If the track blows up it could be the making of Example’s comeback. Combining old with new, the pair could smash the charts. The track, already available on SoundCloud, is upbeat and hard hitting. Out Via Skint Records.
