The Cut: the week’s new music round up, featuring The Japanese House, Solange, Sundara Karma and more

The new music you need to hear this week.

It’s New Music Friday, which generally means a big old playlist to plough through that’s insisting you listen to six new tracks all with a guest spot from <redacted omnipresent priority act>. We’ve no time for that bollocks, Dear Reader, so we’ve rounded up the stuff you need to hear in one easy, relatively bite sized dish.

Including a smattering of the new track drops, album highlights and ‘other stuff’ that’s arrived both today and over the last week, you can simply click play on the Spotify playlist below and sit back. Fancy some more in depth investigation? There’s some articles below you can click about to discover more, if you like.

This week we’ve got a surprise album drop from Solange, plus Really Bloody Brilliant full-lengths from Little Simz, POND, Self Esteem, Sundara Karma and The Japanese House. As if that wasn’t busy enough, we’re also been gifted bangers from Bloxx, Sigrid, Marsicans, Squid, Hatchie, Carly Rae Jepsen and a (Ten) tonne(s) more. Lucky us.

Obviously, Dork is also publishing the best new music all week, so feel free to keep coming back for more ‘as it happens’. Lovely stuff.
