The Music Playlist: October 24, 2016

David Bowie
When I Met You

Skittering and sublime, this is one of three tracks David Bowie recorded with Tony Visconti before his death. Out now on the Lazarus Cast Album.

Joe Fox
Acoustic Alley Sessions EP
Blue Flowers

Unearthed by A$AP Rocky last year, this London busker is now releasing a gritty, soulful debut EP. TFL’s loss is our gain.
Contact Shane O’Neill

Living Room
City Slang

Austin producer Bayonne makes his lounge sound cosmic, all magic eye posters and spliff-filled ashtrays. From album Primitives, out November 4.
Contact Frankie Davison

Skeleton Key Records

This lot sound like a right mess, riffs slopping into loose drums and bedraggled vocals. It’s not a bad mix, this EP drops on October 28.
Contact Chris Latham

Sleigh Bells
I Can Only Stare
Lucky Number

The Brooklyn duo’s noise-rock has always been sticky with a hint of bubblegum pop, and this new single is ripe for blaring in a gym near you.
Contact Jodie Banaszkiewicz

The Proper Ornaments
Tough Love

This first taste of the Londoners’ second album Foxhole is sedative, pretty and slightly druggy. Indie-pop for tired people. Out now.
Contact Natalie Quesnel


Good news for theatre-rock fans: Foxygen are back. This new single, out now, is all plinky-plonk piano and sweeping arrangements. Very OTT.
