The only tracks you need to hear this week

Our pick of the week’s best new music, with tracks by Mr. Tophat and Robyn, a twisted Beyoncé edit and a Madonna-esque remix of Shura

This week’s pick of the best new songs features heart-on-sleeve lyrics from young Texan rapper Kevin Abstract, metal-clanging percussion from Bonzai, and a Madonna-recalling remix of Shura’s “Nothing’s Real”. There are also two tracks – a twisted Beyoncé edit by club experimentalist Lotic, and a new blast by Run The Jewels – that were both released in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s election and that, in their own way, comment on this strange, scary new chapter in America’s history. Finally, there’s some long, meditative house music from Mr. Tophat featuring none other than leftfield pop star Robyn.
