Delorean, Stay Close
If the sun ever actually comes out, this Spanish indie- dance band will make the perfect soundtrack for it.
Lissie, When I'm Alone
This Midwestern beauty's stunning voice combines the best elements of folk, country and blues. She is 2010's answer to Stevie Nicks.
Everything Everything, Schoolin'
The experimental Manchester quartet release this joyous track, packed with catchy beats, early next month.
Nas & Damian Marley, Patience
We weren't so sure on first listen, but we're happy to report the first song from the pair's forthcoming collaborative LP, 'Distant Relatives', is a definite grower.
Vampire Weekend, Everywhere
What could be more appropriate as a soundtrack to the country's return to the politics of the 1980s than a Fleetwood Mac cover by VW.
Cam'ron, It's Your Party
In honour of our similarly named new PM, we're listening to this ominous sounding cut from the New York rapper's new mixtape.
Band of Horses, Factory
'Infinite Arms' is the third LP from the alt-rockers; this lovely effort displays them at their most stately.
Fool's Gold, Ha Dvash
The LA collective's debut LP has been out for several months, but it's worth returning to for songs like this sublime, swooning Afro-pop concoction sung in Hebrew.
