What's hot on our playlist
The Oxford art-rockers' acclaimed new LP has been out for a few weeks now, but we keep returning to the record's stomping second track.
Perfume Genius, Learning
With just a tinkling of the piano and some imperfect, haunting vocals, Seattle solo artist Mike Hadreas has made one of the saddest songs we've heard in a while. But in a good way.
Goldhawks, Where In The World
Euphoric rock from London's answer to Springsteen and the E Street Band. Or should that be U2?
Drake, Show Me A Good Time
Hip-hop's latest saviour works his lyrical magic on a hard-hitting club track courtesy of Kanye West.
We Are Scientists, Goal! England
Somewhat optimistic World Cup anthem from the West Coast punk rockers (above). New LP 'Barbara' is out now.
Blonde Redhead, Here Sometimes
US indie trio return with a brand new track that sees them ease up on the guitars for a more slender, electro feel. Dream pop is the phrase.
The Morning Benders, Promises
Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear's orchestral production works wonders on this single from the California band.
Gorillaz, Dirty Harry
With Gorillaz headlining Glastonbury tonight, we're hoping they'll bring out Bootie Brown of rap band The Pharcyde for this great track from the collective's second LP.
