Top 25 - 21 February, 2016

FKA Twigs, Gypsy and The Cat, Hayden Calnin + Julien Baker!

1. Ella Hooper - Monkey Mind

2. Montaigne - In The Dark

3. Lanks - Golden Age

4. Little May - Remind Me (NEW)

Matt's Pick of the Week: Little May knocked our socks off last year when they released their debut album, For The Company. We named it our most loved LP of 2015 and we still can't stop listening to it. To celebrate how awesome it is, Little May will be heading out on their biggest Australian tour yet. Check out their Facebook page for May 2016 tour dates. Loving that they'll be making appearances on the Sunshine and Gold Coasts. Beaches and Little May... the perfect combination. Not to be confused with the film Beaches and Little May, which would probably also be a great combination. Maybe? Besides their big touring news announced this week, we got the next single from For The Company released with a clip for a visual, viewing pleasure. Single #3 is the slightly manic and incredibly infectious 'Remind Me', which builds in a similar fashion to many of our fave Little May tracks. This time around though the guitars are heavier, a little darker and those drums are beating just that little bit harder. We love it, obviously. And that clip is so 90s in the best way. Like how videos were before they started getting weird around the time that Soundgarden released 'Black Hole Sun'. What's not weird? Little May's 'Remind Me'. It's just all kinds of awesome.

5. Gypsy and The Cat - Inside Your Mind (NEW)

6. Two People - Fading

7. FKA Twigs - Good To Love (NEW)

Jo's Pick of the Week: The press release for FKA Twigs' latest single surely must contain the words ‘writhes around in bed’ when referencing the clip, because one google search came up with a whole range of ‘reviews’ with the same sentence, which yes, is the truth, she is writhing around in bed during the clip, but what that clickbait headline fails to describe is the absolute beauty of ‘Good To Love’. A perfectly crafted pop ballad that on one hand has a whole lot of heartache with lines like “when you give yourself away, it always hurts too much” alongside a whole lot of strength with words like “I’ve had plenty so I know you’re mine”, which all make it a very real and stunning little tale told in a really sweet and soft way, which is not really what I expected when all I keep reading about Ms Twigs is how hot the self-directed clip is. You know what’s really hot? Gorgeously crafted ballads sung straight from the heart. (Jo Michelmore)
