Top 25 - 7 November, 2016


1. Tkay Maidza - Simulation (#1 for 3 weeks!)


2. PNAU - Chameleon (NEW)

Matt's Pick of the Week: Empire of the Sun only released a new album a couple of weeks ago and this week Nick Littlemore brought back his original electronic outfit, PNAU. Which is excellent if, like me, you were listening to that Empire of the Sun album and asking yourself, "I wonder when Pnau will release something new." Not saying anything about the quality of the twice mentioned Empire of the Sun album (now three times), but I love PNAU. Soft Universe was one of my favourite releases of 2011 and it's been a long wait for new material, not counting their collaborations with Elton John. That wait was well worth it because... have you even listened to 'Chameleon'? Do I need to explain anything? Don't you want to dance and have you noticed you're smiling and life is like that SnapChat floral headband filter all the time now? If there's a new album coming, I'm all in already. (Matt Bond)

3. The Montreals - Indigo Club

4. Mr Little Jeans - Stitches

5. Katy Steele - It Ain't Me

6. Take Your Time - Sleep In (NEW)

Jo's Pick of the Week: Lessons learnt today: do not write words about songs from bed. Here I was, thinking I'd get an early night and lounge about bed for an hour or so, listening to some sweet new tunes in preparation for words I was going to write this week, when the beats of Melbourne based duo Take Your Time came somehow subtly pounding out of my headphones and now I'm really confused as to whether I should be doing exactly as the title of their single suggests; 'Sleep In' or whether I should get up and have a bit of a dance before I commit to my pillow. The glistening keys are beautiful and the subdued vocals relax me into a state of sweet shut my eyes, but the little quick beats have my feet tapping the edge of my bed with an urge to get up and move. They label themselves 'cappuccino dub' but let's be honest, no one knows what that means, so it's best to concentrate on the sounds and enjoy, whether that be by chilling with a cappuccino, or not. (Jo Michelmore)
