This Week In Records


This week brings with it one of the longest album names ever known: The 1975’s I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful, yet so unaware of it. On the shorter side of things, Yuck are set to release a new album, as well as Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful, yet so unaware of it (or the slightly creepier, I like it when you sleep, for short) is the second album from The 1975. Having undergone a cosmetic reconstruction, shedding their moody blacks for a soft pink, the band headed the release of the album with ‘Love Me’- demonstrating that it isn’t only their colour that has changed. Out via Polydor Records. 

Yuck’s new album, Stranger Things, will be their third- following 2013’s Glow and Behold and their 2014 Southern Skies EP. The band started off the proceedings for the album by sharing ‘Hearts in Motion’ via Soundcloud, which has a perfect twang of indie rock plucked straight from a 90s film. Out via Balaclava Records.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis catapulted to fame following 2012’s ‘Thrift Shop’, which featured on the duo’s debut album The Heist. Four years on, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made is fast approaching. The album is glittering with collaborations, from Idris Elba, Chance the Rapper, Ed Sheeran, to Leon Bridges. Out via Macklemore LLC. 

‘Rinse and Repeat’ by Riton is the latest banger hitting the clubs this week. This house track has a monotone melody and features Nigeria based vocalist, Kah-lo. It’s also strangely addictive and had it’s first play on Annie Mac’s show on Radio 1 last week.  Out via Grand Central Records.

This week will also see the return of All Saints with their latest single ‘One Strike’, allegedly written in response to the split of Noel Gallagher and Nicole Appleton after a 14 year marriage. This isn’t just a one off; All Saints will also release album Red Flag later this year. Out via London.

Tinie Tempah and Zara Larsson are back this week too, collaborating to bring you ‘Girls Like‘. Zara Larsson released solo single ‘Lush Life’ not long ago but, now she’s back to featuring on big club tracks. This collaboration, however, is not hugely exciting and the hype around this track is disappointing. Out via BPI.
