SAULT – ‘UNTITLED’
Gilles Peterson played SAULT’s brand new, not yet released and untitled, album in it’s entirety on his show this week. It’s an incredibly beautiful and powerful record.
“We present our first ‘Untitled’ album to mark a moment in time where we as Black People, and of Black Origin are fighting for our lives. RIP George Floyd and all those who have suffered from police brutality and systemic racism. Change is happening…We are focused.”

NOW LISTENING… FRAN LOBO – BRAVE
We are huge fans of Fran Lobo and this week she has released a gorgeous single, ‘Brave’, accompanied by a brilliant self-directed video which premiered over on Gold Flake Paint yesterday.
“This video is a love letter to ‘home’. Mixing two mediums/locations: iPhone in NE London and Super 8 in Goa. iPhone footage was shot during the quarantine and the video reflects the situation we are in and the harking to different kinds of home, including the one you find within yourself. The footage from India is in solidarity to all the trade workers in India who will have lost their daily wage due to Covid 19.”
Her EP ‘Brave’ is out this Friday via Slow Dance Records.
Fran will be playing some songs live this Saturday as part of the Heavenly hour of the Love Record Store event. from 3pm!

UNLOVED – WHY NOT
Unloved have released an excellent video of their latest single ‘Why Not’, directed by Julian House, who has worked with the band since their inception to craft the iconic, visual world of Unloved. “It’s a world of 60s teen heartbreak, biker gangs, strange underground movies, pulp romance and haunted house mysteries,” House explains.
“Previous videos have been short psychodramas of found footage with Jade [Vincent of Unloved]’s ghostly appearance looking in on the story unfolding. In this video, Jade is centre stage. The idea was to create the world around her of a 1960s TV Pop special. The bizarre occult graphics and exotic studio extras hint at a dark, strange story behind the lyrics.”
