Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Heads Will Roll

The rousing second single from the New Yorkers' third album, "It's Blitz!" Bound to be a dance-floor filler for the summer.

Slum Village feat. Marsha Ambrosius, Cloud 9

The former Floetry songstress tag-teams with the SV boys to flutter her chops on this soulfully hip mix.

Beth Jeans Houghton, Sweet Tooth Bird

Blissful swirls of arpeggiating harpsichord meet floaty vocals in this mesmerising slice of pysch folk.

Passion Pit, Make Light

Chirpy opening track from the debut LP, Manners, by these Massachusetts-born purveyors of falsetto-based electronica.

Free Energy, Dream City

Handclaps, chants, guitars and the DFA label. What else do you need?

Tempa T, Next Hype

Pulsating and angry UK grime.
