- Though latterly as renowned for their sibling spats as their scorched sonic onslaughts, Jim and William Reid buried the hatchet in 2007 for a Coachella performance that soon spiralled into ongoing touring. Ten years later, the Jesus and Mary Chain have held it together and are now releasing their first studio album since 1998’s Munki, demonstrating in the process that they’re no cynical nostalgia act. Quite the contrary, in fact: these magnificent and misanthropic, guitar-driven gems are proof that the godfathers of shoegaze are as potent as ever. Here’s to another decade of destroying eardrums.
- From Rae Sremmurd’s 'Black Beatles' and Beyoncé’s 'Formation' to 'We Can’t Stop' by Miley Cyrus, Mike WiLL Made-It has driven the desk on some of the Billboard Hot 100’s biggest hits. Finally – after six years and five mixtapes – the Atlanta-based rapper and trap producer is unveiling his debut album proper, and the tracklist reads like a who’s who of the industry. Future, Kendrick, Rihanna, Big Sean, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, YG, Chief Keef, Pharrell, Migos, Lil Yachty... Suffice to say, if they didn’t make Ransom 2, they probably weren’t worth your consideration in the first place.
