Edit Recommends: Ravyn Lenae – Sticky

I’d stick around when things are falling down As song titles go, there are few as apt as ‘Sticky’. Succinctly describing the track’s figurative and metaphorical message, it stands as a testament to the artistic focus of Ravyn Lanae. Featuring production by the talented Steve Lacy – the man behind the best of Kendrick Lamar’s…

Review: Boy Pablo – Feeling Lonely

“I woke up this morning” Romanticising the emotional trauma of a morning after the night before is something that Boy Pablo has mastered. On, Feeling Lonely, the Norwegian Indie-pop newcomer confesses to waking up unexpectedly alone, without a “cellphone” and with a headache that thumps like a “heart attack”. Instead of doing the sensible thing…


Recollection Mix 2017

Welcome to [edit] radio’s recollection mix for 2017! It’s a collection of over 11 hours of the best new music from the past 12 months for you to enjoy at your leisure. In case you were wondering the tracklisting below isn’t a ranking, just system generated list from the iTunes playlist I used to pull…


Grizzly Bear – Three Rings

Don’t you know that I can make it better? The first time I listened to Three Rings I cried. Emotionally speaking, the song absolutely battered me and it’s taken me a while to figure out why. The track, the first to be released from their forthcoming album, Painted Ruins, is a continuation of the Brooklyn…


Paramore – Told You So

I hate to say I told you so I’ll hold my hands up right now, I was pretty damn late to the Paramore party. Back when I was in my mid-twenties I was a bit (*coughs and splutters*) of a music snob and put waaaay too much emphasis on the value of authenticity. These days…


Lil Peep – Witchblades

When I die, bury me with all my ice on. For ages, I’ve joked with friends that when Drake croons about his woes he creates a genre of his own (RnBemo anyone?). But while I don’t doubt the emotional sincerity of his output, he’s often covering issues that are the very definition of a first world problems,…


Krispy Kareem – Fraternity Forefathers

“It’s just that you waited a long time” In March I stumbled across Poussine by Krispy Kareem, an album that someone, somewhere should have shared with me earlier. The indie-pop-slackers from Philadelphia are a sounds-like-Pavement band recommendation with a difference. Not only do they have a serious knack for a chorus but on a bunch of…


Maty Noyes – London

“Who am I to deny them?” Sometimes the body wants what it wants. Whether it’s a beer to relax after work or a Gilmour Girls marathon to hide you from a world full of shitheads, we crave things that are comforting and uplifting without any hint of pretence. It’s that quality that makes London by…


Tom Tripp – Aurelia

“Like a poison in my mind” Even though he only has a few demos to his name, it’s easy to understand why London based R’n’B artist Tom Tripp is creating a pretty significant buzz. On his latest single Aurelia, Tripp introduces himself by crooning like Frank Ocean over a Jai Paul worthy production, a combination…
