Four Tet Love Cry

Mr Hebden at his most upbeat, throwing down addictive, minimal techno with nods to acid-house.

Best Coast When I'm with You

Enough fuzzy guitars, Sixties girl-group harmonies and West Coast pop to make you feel wistful all day long.

Wale TV in the Radio

The Washington DC rapper collaborates with TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek (get it?) and the Somalian rapper K'naan in a brilliant collage of hip-hop and Afrobeat.

Hot Chip Take It In

Their new LP doesn't arrive until early next year, but this first cut from it is a superior slice of electro-pop.

The Very Best featuring Kano Julia

Euro electro meets Malawian Afro-pop meets east London rap in a standout from their recent album.

Steve Reich Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices & Organ

The minimalist master performed something of a greatest hits show in London recently, but sadly this 17-minute wonder from 1973 didn't feature on the bill.
