We spent the week wondering if Hurricane Florence was going to hit us here at our headquarters in Southwest Virginia. Lucky for us, it seems to have angled further south, and while we may still get some heavy rains and winds in the coming days and week, it likely won’t be as devastating to Virginia as feared. More

Jul 27, 2018

There was a trend this week for artists to share two songs at once, rather than just one. We saw it with Blood Orange, Trevor Powers, Elvis Costello, Jungle, Cornershop, and Fucked Up (and Pussy Riot released three songs this week). In cases where the artist made our main best songs list we tried to pick just one song, although that proved challenging with our #1. More

Redefining the Groove

Jul 09, 2014

London duo Jungle kicked off 2014 as one of the hottest bands in the U.K. A placing on the BBC’s prestigious “Sound Of” list—chosen by over 200 tastemakers—was all the more extraordinary considering the misinformation and mystery surrounding the band’s early press. A lack of photos confirming who Jungle was even left many assuming core members “J” and “T” might in fact be the talented roller-skating stars of the clip for second single “The Heat.” More

Aug 13, 2014

Every festival has one day that stands head and shoulders above the rest. While every day at Øya this year felt like an embarrassment of riches, Thursday was my absolute favorite—thanks to strong sets from Conor Oberst, JUNGLE, Janelle Monáe, Little Dragon, and Outkast. More

Aug 07, 2014

At times Jungle have felt like an enigma wrapped in a riddle. The elusive British duowhose LP will surely be counted amongst the year’s most anticipated releasesmanage to generate waves of hype on little more than a handful of catchy tunes, a series of eminently clickable videos, and a thin veil of anonymity; they build a solid foundation distanced from the cult of personality. More
