[Listen] The 1975 - "Pressure" (Artful Remix)

Last week The 1975's self-titled debut went straight in at number 1 in the UK's album chart. Now it's had some time to settle in, there are 16 tracks to digest so it's quite a package, the band are offerieat yourselfk dance in the office with this 90's sounding re-work. Personally I think it's done really well, the vocals are worked nicely in around the dominating framework of the beat. It fits like a glove. Definitely one to add to the late night parties in the coming weeks. 

If you've not already, you can pick up The 1975's debut album over here.

[Watch] Louis M^ttrs - "War With Heaven"

It's been a while since I was truly moved by a music video. The last time I remember feeling like I felt after watching Louis M^tters' clip for "War With Heaven" was via the brilliant "Once And For All" from Clock Opera. The track is a jaunt of a journey and it makes the perfect disjointed backing to the video. It was directed by Josh Cole, winner of 'Best New Director' Cannes Film Festival, who you may know from Rudimental's "Not Giving In" visual. I'm not going to say much else about this one except for take 10 minutes out of your day and check it out. Love one another, guys.

[Watch] Yuck - "Middle Sea" (Official Video)

Many were worried about the future of Yuck after lead singer Daniel Blumberg quit the band at the start of the year, but ithe band came back fighting with the insatiable track "Middle Sea" which sees them taking a slightly new direction and sound. It still has that Yuck familiarity to it though. The dirty-overdriven guitars and sludge.It somehow seems a little brighter in sound though. The video for the track offers up something I'm sure a lot of us can relate to: Family feuds. The clip see drummer Jonny Rogoff face off in a tennis match against his 'father' and it doesn't take long for it to boil over as emotions take hold. The amount of arguments my family had when we went to tennis courts was ridiculous. Although I never smashed a racket like the older gentleman here.

The band are set to release Glow & Behold on September 30th and in support of that will tour the UK and support the Pixies. Not bad, huh?! Dates after the jump.

[Listen] Lulu James - "Sweetest Thing"

After being first introduced to Lulu James earlier in the year I've honestly been rarely excited to hear more. It's not my usual cup of tea but her voice just makes my body move and shake in a way I've not had before. And not like that, you dirty minded fools. Her new single "Sweetest Thing" is a loved up slow-groove of a track that features her unique vocals laying down some heart-felt lyrics over a head-bopping beat in the verses and a bigger drum beat in the chorus'. It's a little more subtle than her previous tracks but it's showing another side to the northern girl. 

Others are noticing her talents too as Ellie Goulding has announced she'll be taking her on tour before she heads out on the road for 'Annie Mac Presents' the following months. Dates of both can be seen after the jump.

[Listen] Danny Brown - "Side A (Old)"

Danny Brown has gained himself a decent (and ever growing) following since the release of his in your face debut album, The Hybrid, back in 2010. In a few week's on the 30th of September he will finally drop, Old, an album with a hell of a lot of anticipation surrounding it. Rightly so if you ask me. He was one of my highlights at Beacons Festival in August and in June at Parklife too. He carries an inhuman amount of onstage energy which I'm hoping translates onto the new record. Today he's given fans the opening track, "Side A (Old)" from the release and it feels like it's from 2010 in its delivery. I'm liking it and am rather excited to get my hands on the full album. See what you make of it below.

[Album Stream] Chvrches - 'The Bones of What You Believe'

People have been getting very excited about the highly infectious tunes Glasgow band Chvrches have been throwing at us in recent months. "The Mother We Share" and "Gun" stand out as firm favourites for me. They're about to release The Bones of What You Believe on September 23rd which is sure to see them gain even more fans and maybe convert some people still not convinced by their dance worthy tunes. Ahead of the album release next week you can stream it in full courtesy of NPR over on their site. Lovely stuff. I know what I'll be listening to in the office today.

[Watch] Wavves debut GTA V featuring "Nine Is God" live on Conan

Tomorrow marks the day many of us will be "sick" and have to stay home from work. The world could go into melt down for all we know. Forget about the Y2K bug 'cause tomorrow is release day for GTA V, the most expensive game ever created. It actually cost more to make than most Hollywood Blockbusters, second only to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. There's some useless pub quiz knowledge for your Monday morning. As is the standard with Grand Theft Auto we can expect a vast array of entertaining radio stations and DJ's to keep us company as we roam the incredibly large map. One of said radio stations will be hosted by none other than Nathan Williams of Wavves and last week the band debuted a brand new track live on Conan that they've created especially for the game. Titled "Nine Is God" you can check out the performance above. Peep "Afraid of Heights" below too while you're at it. Notice Nathan's ltd ed "Los Santos" snapback.

Prepare your excuses for your boss tomorrow. Lucky for me I am the boss and I've already handed myself a doctor's note stating I will be out of action for the foreseeable future!

[Watch] Skream - "Rollercoaster" Feat. Sam Frank (Official Video)

Skream is a talented fellow that likes to mix things up a bit every now and again. He's offered us up a variety of tracks over the years. His latest is a disco-centric track, "Rollercoaster", is the perfect feel-good tune to lighten up the tension before you let your hair down this evening. It features some ear stroking vocals from Sam Frank and it's like sipping down a refreshing gin and tonic after a long hard day. The video is entertaining too, showing us the tale of a young gent frantically trying to plan a party as the world is set to be hit by a huge asteroid. You've seen the movies, unless they've got Bruce Willis on speed dial, earth is pretty much screwed. Make sure to stick around until the end for the disco-ball bonanza.
