Best Coast

The Only Place

This is the title track on BC's upcoming second album. The surf-pop influences remain, but there's a cleaner, less hazy feel to the new material.


No Evidence

4AD's surprise signing releases a career-spanning collection in June. This is one of the more recent cuts from that LP.

Azealia Banks

Fuck Up the Fun

The lauded rapper continues to grow as an artist and braggart on this vibrant track, featuring Diplo-produced beats.

The Streets

Weak Become Heroes (King Krule Remix)

Premiered on the Abeano blog last week, this remix was created by King Krule to mark the 10th anniversary of The Streets' groundbreaking 'Original Pirate Material'.


Crystalline (Current Value Remix)

A smart remix that forms part of the promo campaign for Björk's new album 'Biophilia'.

Odd Future


An explosive 10-minute track featuring every member of the collective, including the elusive Earl Sweatshirt.


Climax (Funkystepz LoveShy remix)

The funky house group add an intense beat to the Diplo-produced single from Usher.

Danny Brown

Grown Up

Feel-good hip-hop bound to be kicking around all summer.

The Men

A Minor

Taken from a Record Store Day compilation, this track finds the Brooklyn punks in a slightly less brutal mood.
