Big Boi featuring Andre 3000 & Sleepy Brown
Lookin 4 Ya
An Outkast track in all but name, this effort displays that the duo still have some great rap tricks up their sleeves.
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Bright Lit Blue Skies
Sunny, nostalgic surf-pop from the odd and adventurous LA band's new record 'Before Today'
You and I
This beautiful wash of ambience from the "chillwave" maven is the latest in the Adult Swim free singles series.
The Gaudy Side of Town
Weeks after its release we're still returning to the 25-man band's 10cc-inspired LP 'Relayted'.
Janelle Monae featuring Lupe Fiasco & BoB
The first single from the new LP by the R&B singer was a glorious dash of futuristic funk; here it's been given a tight and spare hip-hop reboot.
With lots of trashy guitars, Nathan Williams' new single is noisy dumb fun.
The Black Keys
Chop and Change
The Ohio blues-rock duo are touring the UK after the success of their recent LP, 'Brothers'. They added this gem to the coming 'Twilight: Eclipse' movie.
With a new album by the experimental artist on the way, we've revisited her 80's debut 'Big Science'. Alongside the more famous "Oh Superman", this is the LP's standout song.
