Listen: February 2014 new music playlist

Two new tracks from the Klaxons, a new one from Gruff Rhys, the return of both Howling Bells and Little Dragon, killer remixes from Four Tet, Kanye West, Mssing No and brand new tracks from exciting up-and-comers like JUNGLE, Circa Waves, Hockeysmith and more.

Listen: Jagwar Ma release ridiculously good MssingNo remix of ‘Uncertainty’

If I gave out some kind of award for remix of the week, then this would probably win it for the next month at least.

I don’t normally feature remixes per se, as there’s so many of them flying about it would be a full-time job in itself trying to collate them all. I usually share/repost them on Soundcloud, so make sure you follow me there 🙂

The remix that bucks the trend and deserves a bit more coverage is the below piece of brilliance from elusive grime producer MssingNo – who has given Jagwar Ma’s ‘Uncertainty’ a spectral, emotive and majestic reworking.

Check it out:

Watch: Jagwar Ma release video for ‘Uncertainty’

Aussie Madchester-revivalists Jagwar Ma are planning to release Howlin’ track ‘Uncertainty’ as a new single on 1 March, ahead of their upcoming UK tour, and have released a suitably spaced-out video for it.

The track gave the debut album its name with the lyric: “When you’re gloomy / Howlin’ looks so good to me”, and fittingly the video sees the band howling at the moon in the Mojave desert – which must have been a nice day/night out for them.

Glastonbury

My Glastonbury 2013 review…

Glastonbury is commonly regarded as the world’s biggest and best festival for lots of reasons, but the one reason that stands out for me is the freedom it offers festival-goers to enjoy the weekend however they choose to. Other festivals pack you into designated areas and have a limited amount of stages and options. At […]
