Aldous Harding’s Return, ‘The Barrel,’ Tops Our Loop.


In a week dominated by female artists – a good way to celebrate International Women’s Day- ‘The Barrel’ tops the new edition of our loop. The first taster from one of the most anticipated releases of the season, New-Zealand songwriter Aldous Harding‘s third album, ‘Designer’, arrives two years after her sophomore work topped our annual best of chart, second only to Kendrick Lamar. The luminous indie pop of Canadian artist Munya climbs to number 2. Hip-hop masters Freddie Gibbs and Madlib; UK dance songstress Roses Gabor and the French electronic-pop of Vendredi-Sur-mer complete our Top 5.

The highest debut comes from one of the best albums of 2019 so far, English female rapper Little Simz‘s ‘GREY Area’ and her collaboration with Chronixx; joined by other new releases by the likes of Four Tet; Charlie Heat & Denzel Curry; Nilüfer Yanya; Vampire Weekend feat. Steve Lacy; Solange; Tierra Whack ; The National; Mac DeMarco and the new single by Sound of 2019 Rober Award nominees Channel Tres.
