What's hot on our playlist

Jack Penate

No One Lied

Everybody's least favourite indie twerp has matured into a raw singer-songwriter whose voice, accompanied here only by an electric guitar, manages to sound both haunting and euphoric.


Atomic Peace

Sampling Mum's 'Flow Not So Fast', this release has actually been around as a radio rip since 2009. Exquisitely mellow, bass-led electronica.



An ultra lo-fi debut single from the new collaboration between Iceage's Elias Bender Ronnenfelt and Sexdrome's Loke Rahbek.


Do You Have Time

An album out-take from the Sub Pop duo who have worked with Shabazz Palaces.

François & the Atlas Mountains

Les Plus Beaux

The gentle, chiming guitars and loose rhythms give this French band an African feel.

Charlotte Gainsbourg


Another Franco offering, this time from singer and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg's excellent album, 'Stage Whisper'.

Miike Snow ft Lykke Li

Black Tin Box

The 'super-producer' trio recruit a fellow Swede for the first taste of their forthcoming album' Happy to You'.



Doom-laden synth-rock, featuring members of Dysrhythmia, Gorguts and Kayo Dot.

Daniel Rossen

Saint Nothing

The Grizzly Bear pianist dabbles in dark psych-pop on this unsettling campfire ballad.
