I've Seen Footage
More gloriously unreconstructed hip-hop from Death Grips. Mixing apocalyptic imagery with a Salt'N'Pepa-esque beat, it's still, somehow, completely cohesive.
A slow, haunting cover taken from the second instalment of Captured Track's tribute to post-punk band The Wake.
This Pet Shop Boys cover, inspired by nostalgia for the brother's parents' driving music, stays faithful to the original, only adding a layer of darkness to the subtle pop.
A swaggering pop single driven by an ultra-cool beat.
Clean and upbeat indie-rock. The band clearly has its eyes on commerciality, particularly during the soaring, Coldplay-esque pre-choruses.
Yet another cover version, this one a loud and fuzzy take on an old Kurt Cobain demo.
Here We Go Magic
How Do I Know?
Another teaser release from the Brooklyn band's forthcoming third LP. Chirpy, wholesome indie-pop.
MV & EE
Sparse, reverb-laden folk with a vaguely countrified rock edge. Not entirely unlike Neil Young – particularly during the extended proto-grunge-influenced guitar solo.
Discordant electro-rock with a crunchy, broody bassline.
