FFS Collaboration Work Its Way To #1


ffs

The most surprising collaborating effort of the year, Franz Ferdinand teaming up with Sparks under the acronym FFS, finds the two at their most ironic in the third taster from their joint project ‘Collaborations Don’t Work’, which tops our chart this week

Lisbon sisters Pega Monstro bring the highest debut, followed by new tracks by the likes of Alabama Shakes; Moses Sumney; Nai Harvest; Vince Staples and two remarkable covers, Kurt Cobain doing The Beatles’ ‘And I Love her’ from the recent documentary dedicated to his life and, hopefully, a forthcoming record of unreleased solo covers; and Jazmine Sullivan‘s timely rendition of Nina Simone’s ‘Baltimore’, from a soon to be released tribute album.
