The Independent Culture



My Ma

The San Francisco indie kids turn their hand to classic-rock balladeering on this George Harrison-influenced paean to singer Chris Owens' mother.

Belle & Sebastian


A cute, fragile cover of The Primitives' 1988 hit, taken from B&S's second contribution to the compilation album series "Late Night Tales".

Death Grips

Get Got

Setting aside the sluggish murder-rap that made their name, Death Grips are now experimenting with upbeat, electro-infused hip-hop.

Katy B

Witches Brew (Diplo Remix)

The ultra-hip producer turns this somewhat lightweight Katy B album track into a full-throttle electro-house blast.


Follow Baby

Swaggering rock'n'roll from Birmingham. Peace borrow all the best bits from Kasabian, Pixies and Primal Scream.

Bon Iver


As an album track, this has been knocking around for just under a year, but with a brand new video last week, it seems likely to be Bon's next single.

Sleigh Bells


Marilyn Manson-esque magic from the band's new album, 'Reign of Terror'.

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart

Too Tough (St. Etienne Remix)

St. Etienne remix a song taken from the band's long-awaited Acid Reflex remix EP.

Die Hard

Nailed to the Cross

Afrobeat meets quirky folk on this debut album opener.
