Warner Records has signed producer Pheelz. The announcement coincides with the release of the video for his new single, ‘Finesse’, featuring BNXN.



G-Eazy has released new single ‘Angel’, written and released to mark the birthday of his mother, who died last year. “Grief can be a difficult thing to navigate”, he says. “It’s definitely not a linear process and it comes at you in waves. There will never be enough words to describe the feeling of losing your best friend, or the desire to see them again. In a literal sense, I tried to capture that feeling of longing in the lyrics of the song”.

Rico Nasty has released new track ‘Vaderz’, featuring Bktherula.

Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite will publish a memoir, titled ‘Spaceships Over Glasgow’, on 1 Sep. “Stuart Braithwaite’s memoir is a funny and righteous celebration of a life lived on the road and in the studio, dedicated to the pursuit of aural (and occasionally) psychic enlightenment and obliteration”, says Lee Brackstone of publisher White Rabbit.

Mono have announced their first ever full-length film soundtrack. And about time too. They have scored new documentary ‘My Story, The Buraku Story’. From it, this is ‘Kioku’. The album is out on 27 May.

Japanese punk band Otoboke Beaver have released new single ‘Yakitori’. “We are not popular in Japan, but we have been told by some Japanese people that we are flirting with foreigners”, says frontwoman Accorinrin. “I was so pissed off by this that I decided to write songs with ‘Japanese’ and ‘foreign flirtatious’ titles, such as ‘Sushi’ and ‘Yakitori’. It’s a meaningless song, ‘I’m the one who threw yakitori in your mailbox’. Not so flirtatious, right?” Their new album, ‘Super Champon’, is out on 6 May.



Graham Coxon and Rose Elinor Dougall will launch their new project The Waeve with a live show at The Lexington in London on 4 May. Here’s a brief taste of what they sound like. Their first full track will be out on 5 May.
