New Music Friday: Four Tet and Years & Years

New Music Friday: Four Tet and Years & Years

It'll take a while to get used to, but new music the world over is going to start reaching us on a Friday from now on. So here it is, the first ever New Music Friday…

Four Tet - Morning / Evening (Album)

Split into two distinct sole tracks, Morning / Evening explores us at our most vulnerable. Dreamy, Morning Side soothes us from our slumber with Bollywood singer Lata Mangeshkar spilling over Kieran Hebden's smooth textures. Flip over, and Evening Side shifts the ground beneath, still glittering, but eventually transcending into a club-esque tempo that briefly flirts, but ultimately leaves you waiting for a call back. Luke Nightingale.

Catch Four Tet this summer at MS Dockville, Dimensions and Bestival.

Years & Years – Communion (Album)

The most recent winners of the BBC's Sound of… award came into 2015 riding a wave of hype, and Years & Years' debut album seems more than likely to live up to lofty expectations. If you're looking for a 90s pop-house thing, done with a streamlined RnB vocal lead, then you're in luck. Communion grabs the current sound of mainstream music and packages it for a popular audience with mostly good execution. It won't be for everyone, and it does have its weaker moments, but commercial success still seems like a sure thing.

Years & Years still have plenty of festival shows coming up this summer, including Latitude, Melt!, Croatia Rocks, Way Out West, Flow Festival, Zurich Openair and Reading & Leeds.
