Enjoy the sun with the perfect playlist.
The days are longer and the weather is warmer, we love a good British summer. It's a time for celebration, and to us a celebration isn't a celebration without the perfect playlist. We've amalgamated our favourite songs of the year for our perfect soundtrack to this year's warmer months.
Hot Chip - Melody of Love

From Bastille to The Raconteurs, here's June's most exciting upcoming releases.
The indie and pop worlds go hand in hand when it comes to releasing super infectious and thoroughly uplifting tunes. June promises to get the summer off to an anthemic start with these seven albums, which you should definitely have on pre-order.
Bastille - Doom Days
It feels longer than three years since Wild World, but I suppose that's just down to how good it was. It's no surprise then that we're super excited for Bastille's third album Doom Days which promises to be both euphoric and emotional, as indeed we've already seen from the title track and newest single Joy.

Six albums into their career and Hot Chip present us with the chaotic and mesmerising 'Why Make Sense?' A fast-paced mix of disco, funk, electro-pop and RnB, the album is a sure sign that the band are just getting better with age.
Single 'Huarache Lights' kicks off the album and it's everything we've come to expect from Hot Chip: catchy and strangely familiar. It's a strong album opener, with hints of Daft Punk's 'Random Access Memories'. It paves the way for the rest of the album, starting off loud and fast-paced, with more reflective and melancholy moments scattered throughout.
'Love Is The Future' moves into a slightly more RnB feel, with De La Soul's Posdnuos featuring on vocals. The band embraces their romantic side here, something that has always featured strongly throughout their albums. It may be fairly laid back, but it's a positive, uplifting track, and a real highlight of the album. 'Started Right' brings some great disco-influenced funk, whereas the oddly named 'White Wine and Fried Chicken' slows things considerably; a ballad in the middle of a frantic album. It's a beautiful pit stop, however, sounding Broken Bells-inspired as the band reflects on the changes found in a long-term relationship.

The good news is the quality of the latest acts announced.
The 23rd edition of the Netherlands' Lowlands Festival sees yet another wave of incredible artists hit the bill ahead of the date this summer. Hot Chip and Kendrick Lamar are among the major new additions, with seventeen more acts also announced.
Following the enormous success of his worldwide number one third album 'To Pimp A Butterfly', Kendrick Lamar is bringing his hip hop talent to the festival circuit with Lowlands just being the latest in a string of gigs this summer; he will also be playing Bonnaroo, Summerfest, Outside Lands and Reading Festival in the UK. Hot Chip will be supporting their own new album, 'Why Make Sense?', which is set to be released on May 15th 2015.

The band will be touring throughout festival season.
Hot Chip have announced a full run of UK tour dates for October 2015 as they prepare to head out on their sold out European tour this May. The band will also be releasing their sixth studio album 'Why Make Sense?' next month.
Hot Chip hit the UK again in October 2015
Hot Chip will hit Glasgow on May 12th for the first date of their sold out Euro tour where they'll be supported by DJ Pete Fowler. Latest label mates Georgia will join them for the London date on May 14th, returning in October for the newly announced full UK run. Though this time their London date will be supported by Manchester's Lonelady.

Barcelona: arguably the most picturesque city in Europe. Situated on the Mediterranean coast in the heart of the Catalonian region, it's a landmine of history and culture. In amongst the beautiful landscapes and symbolic architecture; much of it crafted by Antoni Gaudi; lies the wonderful Park Guell, while at the city's highest point resides the Olympic Stadium, redeveloped with an increased capacity for the 1992 event. Then, of course, there's always the world famous Nou Camp, home to arguably the greatest and most successful football club of this generation, which is where our week long journey begins.
Arriving a day early before Primavera's festivities start enables us to take in the unique atmosphere as champions Barcelona narrowly defeat Real Valladolid by the odd goal. It also allows one final opportunity to contemplate this year's timetable where clashes aplenty are the order of most days. However, such a haven of choices marks a great festival, right? Right.
This year's event marks the thirteenth edition of Primavera Sound and, with weekend tickets having sold out months ago, it would be fair to say it's one of the few whose reputation and audience is growing despite the current economic decline. Mainly situated across three venues; the Parc Del Forum, Parc De La Ciutadella and Sala Apolo; Primavera has developed from an initial three-day weekend into a full blown seven-day event.
