Rounding up the latest release news…

Syrian singstar Omar Souleyman kicks off today’s release highlights in style with the surreal new clip signifying his track ‘Warni Warni’, which is taken from his Four Tet-mixed new LP, ‘Wenu Wenu’. Tune in (tune in) here:

Passing on the baton to Scottish alt-rap mans Young Fathers (the band, that is) now, and the news that they’ve already set the date for a new album, despite only releasing one in ‘Tape Two’ earlier this year. The new set, ‘DEAD’, will be available via Big Dada/Anticon on 3 Feb 2014. Its lead track, ‘LOW’, is streaming in the meantime, right here:

Closing us out it’s folk songwriter and all-round man-of-the-world Jake Bugg, who has a new promo out, directed by Shane Meadows, for his truly gritty new single ‘Slumville Sunrise’.
