Kindness gives us another mix overflowing with warm… Read More

Prince has two new albums out this week, bless him — he’s never been one for self-restraint, and that’s one of the reasons we love him, right? Just like everyone else, we’ve been listening to PlectrumElectrum and Art Official Age all day, and we’ll no doubt be publishing our thoughts on them in due course. In the meantime, though, it seems like a fine time to celebrate music’s most eccentric genius with a survey of his, well, most Princely moments. Read them all and we’ll serve you pancakes… Read More
