TRACK OF THE WEEK
BENIN CITY – ALL SMOKE, NO FIRE
Benin City are mad, you can feel it, it seeps into their words and makes their phrases sting with their spot on observations. “Your croissants are in my cafe bro” comes at you, and as funny as it might seem, you know exactly what they mean. This ode to London’s nightlife, to the venues being attacked, closed and cleansed, is a stirring reminder that just because we saved Fabric, it doesn’t mean we don’t have more communities to help protect.
BEST OF THE REST
Other great tracks this week come from Kehlani, Clara La San, 6lack, Sufjan Stevens, Kelly Lee Owens, Sevdaliza, Poppy Ackroyd, Jeshi and more
