Ben Folds and Nick Hornby
Romantic melancholy is the tone of this touching first single from these two complementary talents.
Adam Haworth Stephens
The Cities That You've Burned
Previously of indie duo Two Gallants, here Stephens goes it alone with a beautiful country-rocking ballad, from his recent LP, 'We Live on Cliffs'.
Victory Walker (2AM)
This new single from the 15- man band sees them shed their well-worn reggae outer-garments in favour of something a whole lot NEU!er.
This standout from the trio's recent LP also features on a new EP due in November.
A grand melange of electronics, strings and melodies in an early track from Stevens's new LP, 'The Age of Adz'.
From their recently re-released EP, 'Vampire with Dreaming Kids', this track mixes gorgeous cascading guitars with delicate vocals.
Horns and the insistent electro pulse are what make this leaked track by the South Carolina rapper.
How to Dress Well
The US indie scene's man of the moment transforms a dramatic R Kelly ballad into a minimal organ driven torch song in a video shot for the yourstru.ly website.
