What's hot on our playlist

Deerhunter Game of Diamonds

From their latest EP 'Rainwater Cassette Exchange', this song sees the Atlanta art-rockers turn acoustic for a haunting and sparse ballad.

The Glass I Wanna Be Dancin'

A simple chorus line, house piano and electro bleeps : propulsive dance music from the Berlin/New York duo.

Michael Jackson Cheater (demo)

Recorded in 1987, this largely unheralded gem somehow failed to make the cut on Jackson's 'Bad' album.

Clipse Eyes On Me

Pharrell and Keri Hilson guest on a teaser from Clipse's forthcoming new record, Til The Casket Drops, but it's the tune that makes it stand out.

Beck Waiting For My Man

Beck's online covers project continues apace with a discordant, skewed take on the Velvet Underground.

Tom Waits Ice Cream Man

As we all melt in the heat, Tom Waits' sprightly crooning from 1973 is just the ticket.
