On Melancholy Hill
Second single from 'Plastic Beach' is a gloriously mournful tune. Almost makes you forgive them for their lacklustre Glastonbury set.
The Sparrow, the Thrush and the Nightingale
The former Beautiful South man enlists folk singer Jim Causley for this bittersweet, allegorical tale of intra-band tension.
Hypnotic rhythmic motifs and inventive orchestrations make this track by the jazz pianist (below) a vital addition to any library.
Hang With Me
Lovely electro ballad, with great use of rolling synth, from the Swedish star's acclaimed LP 'Body Talk PT 2'.
Dentist drill guitars and a production style clearly designed to unsettle the listener, from Nick Cave's 'side band'.
Bombay Bicycle Club
From the band's latest acoustic release, 'Flaws', this enchanting track has a haunting simplicity.
Stay With Me
The influence of his father is unmistakable in this track by the reggae artist, soon to be seen at the One Love Festival.
The Beach Boys
God Only Knows
Having recently announced their return to the stage for a one-off 50th anniversary performance, what better time to celebrate the group's (above) timeless classic?
