Sharon Van Etten

Love More

This gorgeous, slow-burning track has been around for a while, but it remains a stand out on the alt-folk singer's forthcoming 'Epic'.

Kanye West (feat Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Bon Iver & Nicki Minaj)

Monster

The web's alive with West's Justin Bieber remix, but we're more taken with this recent star-studded effort.

Matt Costa

Witchcraft

Channelling 1960s psychedelia, the California-based Costa's upcoming single recalls The Zombies with its tremolo-effect guitar riffs.

Twin Shadow

Slow

A melancholy dash of new- wave inflected art-pop from the one-man-band's debut LP.

Phantogram

Mouthful of Diamonds

About to tour the US, but relatively unknown here, Phantogram rock like a female-fronted Interpol with extra keys thrown in.

The Raveonettes

I Wanna Be Adored

The reverb-obsessed duo offer a fuzzy yet light and dreamy take on the Stone Roses classic. All in aid of Dr Martens, which is less dreamy.

Mona

Listen to Your Love

Memphis' latest buzz-band substitute the ubiquitous surf sound for brooding 1950s rock'n'roll.

T-Model Ford

Nobody Gets Me Down

Ragged delta blues from the 90-year-old Mississippi man who performs this weekend at the US branch of the ATP festivals, curated by Jim Jarmusch. Wish we were there.
