A long-lost track from Fela Kuti - dating back to 1960 - is easily the best thing we heard this week. If, for whatever reason, you've never spent time with Kuti's music, use this as a jumping off point. For those familiar with his incredible output, here's one more track to throw into rotation.


5. Super Luxury - 'Constant Delicious'

This is a song called 'Constant Delicious' by a rock band from Leeds called Super Luxury, and it's a noise-damaged banger of varied heritage. On the one hand, it's ascetic in its choices - one guitar, a coupla leathery yells, one athletic rhythm section. Stripped-back. Lean. Pure. On the other, it's so lairy and silly and loud that you'll have no problem using 'Constant Delicious' to soundtrack away your shitty desk job with a daydream of a brighter place, a place where your fist's in the air and you're shotgunning own-brand lager in a skull-and-crossbones vest, on a sofa that probably has bent coppers and powdered Doritos and lord knows what else pressed into its fraying fabric.



4. Dan Deacon - 'Learning to Relax'

'Learning to Relax', is accompanied by an Alan Resnick-animated video that's every bit as colourful as the song itself: "Two parallel columns of cubes are colored with complementary gradients. The cubes oscillate at faster and faster rates, which create the optical illusion of color mixing and elaborate visual patterns."



3. Marika Hackman - 'In Words'

It's progressive folk music, with sounds that take you back far, far from its '60s revival, back to actual folk music, Pagan music, a millennium old atmosphere conjured with its collection of instruments and sounds and vocal chords, ancient spirits in modern vessels all lovingly churned together with help from burgeoning producer Charlie Andrew.



2. Kendrick Lamar - 'The Blacker the Berry'

'The Blacker the Berry' finds Lamar in a slightly darker place, spitting rhymes about racial equality and generational hatred over a Boi-1da-production. It also features one hell of a hook from Assassin.



1. Fela Kuti - 'Fela's Special'

Characterised by leading rhythm guitars and jazzy brass sections, the genre began life in Ghana and spread to other West African countries, including Nigeria, where Fela Kuti hails from. As such, this recording of 'Fela's Special' by Fela Ransome-Kuti & The Highlife Rakers is typical of the genre, an indomitably upbeat sound whose brass stutter in rhythmic jibes, parenthesising horn solos, underpinned with the bass notes of a piano, soft juddering jazz guitar chords and an always-shuffling skittering beat.
