The Midnight Sun by C. Duncan

"Towards the end of recording Architect, my production skills had developed, and I wanted to put them to the test on another record," explains C. Duncan of his new album. "I'm still very much in the mindset that working alone from home is the best way to create music - for me anyway. I upgraded my home setup for The Midnight Sun to give it a much cleaner sound. Unlike Architect, which was a big mix of different genres, the new album is much more coherent and concise sonically."

Utopia Defeated by D.D Dumbo

"Given Utopia Defeated is Perry’s debut full-length it's hardly surprising he's kept things on the more conventional side (and I use conventional relative to Perry's influences – this record is a lot less conventional than most pop music I've heard this year). He is undoubtedly an absurdly talented fellow and has the creative potential to make a truly groundbreaking album. This isn't that, but it is a strong debut. And perhaps more importantly, it's got me very excited for what Perry might have in store for us as he matures."

That's what the 405's Alex Mankoo had to say about the album. Find out if he's right by streaming it below (or head here to check it out on Spotify). It's out now on 4AD.

Let Them Eat Chaos by Kate Tempest

"The arts should be social, not elitist. They should be part of our everyday life. They should be in our communities, not only on elevated platforms or behind red velvet ropes. Music, literature, theatre, film - these things are so important, they bring us together into the same space, they give us ourselves, they bring us to life, they beam our humanity back to us in all its hideous beauty. And in these times, with the fear spreading everywhere and the divisions between us deepening daily, we desperately need to remember that we are all part of the same thing. Nothing does that for me more profoundly or joyously than standing in the crowd watching a gig, or a play, or a painting. It's like a little victory you get to keep forever. I want us to offer that experience to everyone."

Those beautiful words were written by Kate Tempest in relation to Brighton Festival, as she's their 2017 guest director, but hey should give you an idea about the sort of person Kate is. A brilliant mind indeed.
