A lot of great music this week, here are a few tracks that we can’t stop playing in the Emms Office.
1. M.I.A. – Bring The Noize
The Hounslow born rapper returned this week dropping a track which heralds back to her 2005 debut ‘Arular’. The song will appear on the singer”s fourth album, ‘Matangi’, releasing this fall.
2. Chris Brown – Don’t Think They Know (feat. Aaliyah)
“Don’t Think They Know” — the motivational second single featuring Aaliyah’s vocals off his upcoming album X (out July 16). It features an eerie video projection of the late Aaliyah as she “dances” with Brown.
3. Everything Everything – Don’t Try
A personal favourite off the EE second album ‘Arc’. According to lead singer, Jonathan Higgs. ‘Don’t Try’ is a song about release, about letting go. “‘Don’t Try’ is about letting it out and this video is all about absolute abandon”.
4. Feist & Timbre Timbre – Homage
“Homage,” is a collaboration between Feist and Timbre Timbre. The track is the newest release from Arts & Crafts X, a collaborative project from the Canadian label that features efforts from artists such as Broken Social Scene, Chilly Gonzalez, and Stars.
