It was extremely difficult to cut the playlist back to 10 songs for the Tracks Of The Week, with many great tunes missing out on the feature.
It’s all about looking forward to what the rest of the year has to offer in this week’s playlist, as all 10 songs are single releases.
Mount Kimbie have teamed up with King Krule once again on the new tune ‘Blue Train Lines’. It’s the electronic duo’s third single released from their forthcoming record, Love What Survives.
Tyler, The Creator also dropped ‘Boredom’, the third offering from his new record, Scum Fuck Flower Boy, due for release this Friday.
There’s plenty of new Australian tracks on the playlist too. Melbourne duo Kllo unveiled the first song from their upcoming debut album and Vera Blue and Cosmo’s Midnight dropped singles throughout the week.
Track Of The Week: Slum Sociable – ‘Don’t Come Back Another 100 Times’
Just today, Slum Sociable revealed their first single of 2017, ‘Don’t Come Back Another 100 Times’. The Melbourne jazz-hop duo consists of Ed Quinn on production, keys and guitar and Miller Upchurch on vocals and percussion. The track is taken from the pair’s forthcoming debut album, due for release later this year.
According to the pair, “‘Don’t Come Back Another 100 Times’ is about trying not to be shallow. It touches on elements of regret, of losing someone because of it and accepting the responsibility of your actions. It’s introspective, but written for anyone to be able to relate to and hopefully help come to terms with their own similar situation.”
The track continues Slum Sociable’s left-of-centre production techniques, displayed on their previous offerings, such as 2015’s TQ EP. ‘Don’t Come Back Another 100 Times’ kicks off in spookily ethereal circumstances, progressing into the duo’s trademark neo-soul/jazz dynamic, combining orchestral strings, horns and breezy synths masterfully.
