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.


Das Fluff

Hey You

A dark confessional about cyber-stalking from debut album 'Would You Die For Me', a compelling electro-pop rollercoaster featuring formidable frontwoman Dawn Lintern.


Beth Orton

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'.


Porcelain Raft

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.


Beans on Toast
