Week Starter – Jodie Langford

Week Starter is our Monday column where we give you a new song to help you get on out of bed & help you power on through the working week.

From “Radio Radio” and “Don’t Believe the Hype” to “Television, the Drug of a Nation” and “Kill Your Television” there’s a long proud tradition of artists pointing out the manipulative nature of mass media. Northern England spoken word artist Jodie Langford joins that lineage with “TV Or Not TV” a mix of tinkling piano and breakneck glitch beats that focuses on the way TV targets the young and the negative fallout of it. From the social critique and defiant lyrics to minimalist arrangement there’s a hint of Sleaford Mods here, but Langford makes this her own by spitting fast and precise and with passion.
