THE TUNES ON RE­PEAT IN THE Q OF­FICE THIS MONTH.

Q (UK) - - Incoming -

Four Tet Two Thou­sand and Seven­teen

Kieran Heb­den re­turns with this lu­mi­nes­cent head-nod­der, in which twin­kling dul­cimer hov­ers above lol­lop­ing sub-bass. Here’s hop­ing it sig­nals an im­mi­nent fol­low-up to 2015’s Morn­ing/Evening LP. Out: now, on Text.

The hor­rors Ma­chine

When The Hor­rors first emerged as car­toon­ish goth rock­ers a decade ago, few would have wa­gered they’d end up here. Taken from their fifth LP, Ma­chine is clat­ter­ing elec­tro-rock with echoes of Depeche Mode in their im­pe­rial, Vi­o­la­tor-era, phase. Out: now, on Caro­line In­ter­na­tional.

Tricky when we die

Cre­pus­cu­lar high­light from the Bris­to­lian’s forth­com­ing 13th stu­dio al­bum sees him reunited with Martina To­p­leyBird. Her quiv­er­ing vo­cals pro­vid­ing a spinet­in­gling fo­cal point as the trip-hop veteran croaks and creeps around in the shad­ows. Out: now, on False Idols.

Mark Lane­gan Band NOCTURNE (adrian sher­wood REMIX)

The brood­ing, elec­trob­lues of the Gar­goyle al­bum orig­i­nal are put through the son­ic­man­gler, with soar­away gui­tars el­e­vat­ing Lane­gan’s griz­zled vo­cal as it pops out the other (bot­tom) end. Out: 29 Septem­ber, on Heav­enly Record­ings.

wrongToM MEETS The ragga Twins JUST a DUB

And if that’s not enough dub for you, Lon­doner Wrongtom strips back his and The Ragga Twins’ ’ 80s- dance­hall-salut­ing The Vibes tune into a bouncy, sound-sys­tem­friendly killer. Out: 18 Au­gust, on Tru Thoughts.

dizzee ras­cal wot u gonna do?

From his new LP, Raskit, here Dizzee de­liv­ers some sage ad­vice to younger rap­pers about life out of the lime­light, when the ra­dio won’t play your records and you “gotta work week­end shifts at McDs.” Out: now, on Dir­tee Stank/Is­land.

Mura Masa FT. da­mon al­barn blu

Pro­ducer Alex Crossan has snared an im­pres­sive roll call of guests for his de­but LP, in­clud­ing A$AP Rocky, Jamie Lidell and Charli XCX. But it’s the gloopy, dub-pop that Da­mon Al­barn sings on at the end which is the real high­point. Out: now, on An­chor Point.

ST. VINCENT new york

The first track to be re­leased from An­nie Clark’s forth­com­ing fifth solo al­bum, New York is a stripped-down bal­lad that puts her cap­ti­vat­ing melodies front and cen­tre. Is it about Bowie? An ex-lover? Nei­ther? It doesn’t mat­ter: this is ex­cel­lent. Out: now, on Loma Vista Record­ings.

The Killers Rut

The Man showed The Killers have got their swag­ger back and this re-es­tab­lishes their way with an ear­worm­ing pop hook. A synth power-bal­lad that erupts into a U2-style an­them, it’s them at their most bom­bas­tic. Out: 22 Septem­ber, on Is­land.

TYLER, The CRE­ATOR i ain’T got time!

While his early solo out­put sounded like hiphop made by the sin­is­ter dwarf in Don’t Look Now, the Odd Fu­ture leader has sanded down the sonic edges on his new LP. This high­light re­sem­bles Missy El­liott remix­ing the Knight Rider theme song. Out: now, on Columbia.
