Two new marvels from California: all-round instrumentalist Ty Segall is only thirty-one years old, and already has countless album titles to his name. In a collaboration with White Fence he supplements this list with a new paragon in musicality. The Internet stirs things up with a powerful dose of neo-funk on their album Hive Mind. On the other side of the Atlantic we find many British artists with new songs. Ariana Grande, Florence + The Machine and the one and only Rick ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ Astley, are dominating the list of releases. Miles Kane wrote the first single of his Coup de Grace together with Jamie T and Lana Del Rey. In conclusion, there’s enough music and fresh chords to tryout and play along to. Happy jamming!
