What's hot on our playlist
The perfect showcase of the 'NME' Cool List winner's talents. Whether rapping profanely or singing in a rich soul voice over heavy rave beats, Ms Banks is as gifted as she is cocky.
Bloom (Jamie xx Rework Part 3)
Jamie Smith is the star here, reworking the 'King of Limbs' track for a second (not third) time. Eight minutes of dark techno, this is head and shoulders above his previous effort.
Produced by Alex Kapranos, Citizens' chirpy, childlike debut single will be released in December.
Coast to Coast
Breezy, romantic, indie-pop rock'n'roll. A great example of how effective an unfussy melody can be.
Lethargic dream-pop packed with sparkling synths and a great repetitive piano riff.
Epic, glamorous electro-pop that's set to soundtrack 2012.
You Don't Know How Lucky You Are
Traditional stripped-down acoustic folk given a modern twist by the brittle-voiced 23-year-old's surrealist lyrics.
Make It Right
Sitting somewhere between retro electro and jittery 'chillwave', this is an incredibly disorientating track.
An innovative soundscape inspired by the sleep disorder.
