What's hot on our playlist
Like Grinderman fronted by Poly Styrene from X-Ray Spex. A brooding reinvention of old-school punk.
Films of Colour
FOC, currently found on many "Ones to Watch" lists, inhabit the same highly melodic, post-ladrock space as early Coldplay.
Full of breathy vocals, exotic beats and, erm, glockenspiels. Sequin is a great comeback track from the Canadian experimentalists.
Let the Sun Shine
This 21-year-old singer from East London is signed to Simon Cowell, his first signing in six years who hasn't appeared on one of his TV shows.
Every Single Day
The catchy closing track from this Hackney-via-Harare singer-songwriter's debut LP, 'Saved'.
He Would Have Laughed
Our love affair with the US fourpiece's new LP, 'Halcyon Digest', continues with the record's dreamy, percussion- heavy closing track.
Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas
The anthemic opener to Flowers's Vegas-themed solo album, 'Flamingo'. Consider it a guilty pleasure.
Dave Sitek's star-studded side project is full of infectious art-dance jams, but the opener, with vocals by Theophilus London, remains the recently released album's standout.
