Playlist: Mumford and Sons / Das Fluff / Beth Orton / Porcelain Raft / Beans on Toast
Mumford and Sons
The folk superstars' second album's title track sets the pace for their next stage of tweed-coated world-domination.
A dark confessional about cyber-stalking from debut album 'Would You Die For Me', a compelling electro-pop rollercoaster featuring formidable frontwoman Dawn Lintern.
Something More Beautiful
A gorgeous orchestral ballad, dripping in melancholia, from the folk star's tremendous new album, and first in six years, 'Sugaring Season'.
Drifting In And Out
The single from New York artist Mauro Remiddi's debut album 'Strange Weekend' is a slice of typically melodious, dreamy, falsetto-driven synthpop.
