New Music Fridays: Festicket Staff Picks

New Music Fridays: Festicket Staff Picks


it's now just six weeks until Christmas. Count 'em. But as someone who resists the festive spirit until at least December, I won't bang on about. Worth a mention though is the fact that a certain Swedish furniture brand, in a baffling but very welcome move, have featured grime royalty D Double E in their Christmas advert for this year. Which is frankly too good not to share.

Back to business, undoubtedly the most talked about release this week is, with good reason, the long-awaited LP from the undefinable FKA twigs (entitled Magdalene). It's definitely an album that will require multiple listens, and one that deserves undivided attention, but the final three tracks in particular completely stopped me in my tracks this morning, staring aimlessly into middle-distance while sitting at my desk.

Beyond that, there's the pan-pipe madness of TNGHT's latest single, the return of J Hus, and some unsurprisingly tender new tunes coming courtesy of Lucy Dacus. Hear all of those and more below.
