The Student Playlist

Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

PLAYLIST: April 2019

As of Easter 2019, we’re changing up the way we update our new music playlists. Rather than doing a re-cap at the end of every month, we’ll now be doing so weekly – or attempting to do so, at least. They’ll still be archived by month, but hopefully they’ll be refreshed once a week until each month is done, then a new one created.

So, April 2019 has been yet another great month for new music so far. Record Store Day 2019 has deluged many music fans with a whole heap of awesome exclusive tracks, many of which can also be discovered via streaming services.

More than four years after her last new music, and having faced several trying periods in her personal life, Tahliah Debrett Barnett – FKA Twigs – released a new track ‘Cellophane’. Two Door Cinema Club also announced their fourth album False Alarm, while The Black Keys revealed their first LP in half a decade, out in June.

Kevin Parker kept anticipation running high ahead of a fourth Tame Impala album with a new track ‘Borderline’. Following the amicable split last year of cult British indie heroes Wild Beasts, their frontman Hayden Thorpe has revealed his debut solo album Diviner. And, at long last, there’s a suggestion of new music from super-in-demand Canadian producer Kaytranada, who dropped a new track called ‘Dysfunctional’. In our playlist, there’s over 50 other new tracks by a whole galaxy of other great up-and-coming artists.

For the older fans of the whole indie-dance thing among us, Hot Chip have announced their seventh album A Bath Full Of Ecstasy, and American trio Yeasayer announced their fifth record Erotic Reruns – both bands released brand new singles to mark the respective roll-outs. Excitingly, although there’s not a release date for it yet, Beck detailed a 14th studio album Hyperspace with a new track titled ‘Saw Lightning’.
