With Morse Code leading into percussion and Detroit Youth Choir choral work, “Mayday” finds The Go! Team up to their old tricks.

Jadu Heart + Mura Masa: U Never Call Me
Now with an official video, “U Never Call Me” features electronic duo Jadu Heart and songwriter/producer Mura Masa blending warm funk components into a rich R&B track. Both acts recently released their debuts, but this collaboration marks something different, dance-y and sensual. As for the video, it focuses on the activities of a masked figure in a bathtub and a shifting landscape of light.
Field Music: Count It Up
The first single from Field Music’s forthcoming sixth LP Open Here, “Count It Up” makes for an odd but charming pop tune that calls to mind Talking Heads yet stays true to the brand’s hyper-specific vocal and musical stylings. Here, the Sunderland sibling duo tackles materialism, privilege and xenophobia—with sharp lyricism set on sonic levity.
Whitney Houston: My Love is Your Love (Bonde Edit)
Reworking a classic (especially one by a beloved artist who is no longer with us) can be a risky task, but Bonde’s remix of Whitney Houston’s 1988 “My Love Is Your Love” is a success. The deep edit is a smooth and fluid take that remains just faithful enough to the original. Across six minutes, Bonde creates a chilled out vibe that will have you nodding your head from the start.
