Arcade Fire - We Used to Wait

Anticipation for forthcoming LP 'The Suburbs' has hit fever pitch with the leak of this dark, trippy single currently setting the internet ablaze.

Os Mutantes - Querida Querida

Expect to hear this psychedelic number when the legendary Tropicalia group play the Southbank Centre's Brazil festival next month.

Johnny Flynn - Kentucky Pill

Nu-folk troubadour Flynn introduces Afrobeat into this rollicking lead single from his newly released second album, 'Been Listening'.

Ed Harcourt - Fears of a Father

On his aptly titled album 'Lustre', new father Harcourt explores parenthood.

Dean and Britta - White Horses

Gorgeous, dreamy cover version of the hit TV theme by the ex-Luna duo soon appearing at the Barbican.

Paolo Nutini - Candy

Warm, mature romantic offering from the young Mercury-nominated Scot (above) who soon plays T in the Park and the Eden Sessions.

Cherry Ghost - Kissing Strangers

This soaring string-fuelled anthemic single, about swinging lovers, is a glimpse at the richness of Simon Aldred and co's upcoming album.

Black Lips - Before You Judge Me

Black Lips' lo-fi scuzz-pop may be a little derivative, but ditties like this Bo Diddley-aping number are certainly livening the place up.
