Where Can I Go?
With its rich, reedy organ and Marling's (pictured) wise-beyond-her-years voice, this is a truly wonderful comeback single. Timeless and uncomplicated Anglo-Americana.
A Tooth for an Eye
This song is reliant on an off-kilter Afro-beat rhythm that distracts and disorientates as much as it drives the track forward. Smart, subtle and sophisticated songwriting.
Demon to Lean On
Nathan Williams isn't the most likeable character in the overtly obnoxious garage rock scene but, as his music deepens emotionally, he sounds less Beavis and Butthead and more Neutral Milk Hotel.
5AM in Toronto
Never one for modesty, Drake rages at “haters” while boasting of his own Sinatra-lifestyle. As always, accidental comedy ensues; this time when he spends a verse complaining of people not “feeling themselves” enough'.
Sad French Song
Complex time-signatures and a snare so high in the mix it actually makes you jump. Needless to say this is a project by two drummers – namely The Breeders' Jose Medeles and Portland based drum instructor David Coniglo.
The lead single from the band's new 'Soft Will' LP sees them move further into melodic indie pop.
