[Editor’s Note: House Playlist is a weekly round-up of all the new music we think you need to hear.]
Broken Bells, “After the Disco”: After the Disco, the follow-up to Danger Mouse and the Shins’ James Mercer’s Broken Bells, has been pushed back a few weeks to February 4th, but they’ve released the title track as consolation:
St. Vincent, “Digital Witness”: St. Vincent’s eponymous follow-up to 2011’s Strange Mercy doesn’t drop until February 25th, but Annie Clark has released another new track from the album. Listen to the bouncy “Digital Witness” below:
SBTRKT featuring Jessie Ware, “Runaway”: SBTRKT (a.k.a. Aaron Jerome) has shared a track from his DJ set last week. The song, which barely breaks the one-minute mark, features Jessie Ware on vocals, as well as his friends Tic and Sampha.
Lockah, “If Loving U Is Wrong, I Don’t Want to Be Wrong”: February 17th sees the release of a new single from Scottish producer Lockah. “If Loving U Is Wrong, I Don’t Want to Be Wrong” is a bright pastiche of spliced-up vocal samples, ’90s house keyboards and loops, some drum n’ bass, and even freestyle. Lockah’s new album, Yahoo or the Highway, drops April 14th.
Tomas Barfod featuring Nina K, “Pulsing”: Tomas Barfod’s “Pulsing,” out yesterday, may lack a discernable hook, but the track’s bassline more than lives up to its title. A four-track EP featuring the song will arrive on February 18th.
