TRACK OF THEW EEK Pil­lowPer­son- On Your Way This Moshi Moshi sign­ing popped upon to our radar re­cently and we can’tget enough ofit. Withh in tsof old school uk garage, am Aphex Twin-style video, and a‘jo­gon, matey’ at­ti­tude, it 100 per­cent ban gs straight through Sat­ur­day night, all the way to Sun­day morn­ing. Not sur­pris­ing, given that Pil­low Per­son, aka Sarah Jones, is the drum­mer for Hot Chip. Word to the wise, if whipped cream makes you feel funny, do not click on the video.

Hero of the week is Tinie Temp ah, for let­ting us snoop around his home. He told Deze en about his decor choices :“The gi­raffe was al­ready there, but I bought a ze­bra, which is my favourite an­i­mal, so that the gi­raffe could have a friend in the house, ”he­said. I’ve al­ways watched Amer­i­can TV shows like Crib sand I was just like‘ shit, I’ve got a basement, let me make it su­per-cool ’,” Ti ni ewen ton :“I just turned it into a boys room. I added some con­crete to the walls just to give it a New York ware­house, apart ment feel.” Mean­while, Jack Anton off told N ME about work­ing on Green Light with Lorde. “Itall starts with me and the mina room, just talk­ing about ideas and what we love. So with Ella, we both love pop songs that are in­ter­est­ing in the pro­duc­tion side and also have a lotto do with break-ups, which can be dev­as­tat­ing. Making Green Light, we thought :‘ Let’ s not dumb any­thing down, let’ s make the pop mu­sic we love’.”

Zero of the week is theendof aparty, Lorde(left) told the New York Times .“With a party, there’ s that mo­ment where a great song comes on and you’ re ec­static, and then there’ s that mo­ment later on where you’ re alone in the bath­room, look­ing in the mir­ror, you don’ t think you look good, and you start feel­ing hor­ri­ble .” She ex­plained that up com­ing al­bum Melo­drama would tell the story of a night at a house party .“It’ s a record about be­ing alone. The good parts and the bad parts .”
