The hottest new tracks, every Monday...
Downhill Lullaby (Capitol)
Sky Ferreira resurfaces with six minutes of foggy blackness. Strings, atonal guitar and vocals form an intriguing swirl. Six years after Night Time, My Time, new LP Masochism is coming, finally.

Crow’s Perch (Rough Trade)
More mazy eccentricity from Black Midi, their first single for new label Rough Trade would be impenetrable were it not for the regular shards of brilliant light.
Contact Jamie Woolgar/Ben Ayres
Hungry Child (Domino)
Hot Chip return with this gentle floorfiller to tee up new record A Bath Full Of Ecstasy. Now there’s a hedonistic album title!
Contact Aoife Kitt
Written by Ariana Grande collaborator Tayla Parx, this gloopy pop song finds Icelandic singer Glowie shooting down bullies in style.

The Seed (Decca)
On her third LP A Different Kind Of Human (June 7) Aurora addresses ecology with majestic pop. The Seed is an earthy appetiser.

ARIANA GRANDE & VICTORIA MONÉT
Perhaps the best thing about Ariana Grande’s new-found appetite for prolific releasing is how much fun she’s having with it. This is another humdinger.

High Right Now (Epic)
A portrait of excess from Post Malone’s buddy Tyla Yaweh. The lyrics are addled (“Flying on a cocaine spaceship”), but the music is crystal clear.
