Four guitar tracks to rock out to this week

Including songs by Japanese Breakfast and Black Midi.

Feel like you’ve missed out on the week’s biggest releases? No worries, we’ve got you covered with a list of the best and latest guitar tracks. Here are four that you have to hear:

Essentially by Japanese Breakfast

Japanese Breakfast have dropped a new song, Essentially, on global hospitality brand W Hotels’ boutique label W Records. The dreamy yet propulsive track is the result of Michelle Zauner and bandmate Craig Hendrix’s recording sessions in Bali, Indonesia.

Talking Heads by Black Midi

Talking Heads is Black Midi’s latest single on Rough Trade Records, which they signed with at the end of January. The buoyant, chameleonic track is another stellar showing from the buzzy London post-punk outfit.

Read My Mind by Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever

Read My Mind is a jangly new cut from Melbourne band Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. Its accompanying music video captures a late afternoon at the rodeo, with footage of riders facing off against bulls in grainy black and white.

Black Star Dancing by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

Two years on from Who Built The Moon?, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have returned, and if Black Star Dancing is any indication, they’re ready to dominate the dancefloor. The disco-inflected number is the title track of a new EP they’re dropping next month.
