What's hot on our playlist
Karen O and Trent Reznor
The art-rockers collaborate on a suitably carnal cover of the Led Zeppelin classic. Taken from the "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" soundtrack, this could pass as the sound of robots having sex.
Love What Happened Here
Blake continues to distance himself from straight dubstep. The swollen bass, skittish beats and vocal samples may remain, but in far jazzier material these days.
Lana Del Ray
Born To Die Session
The voice of broken Americana turns her hand to the tragedy of a lonely Friday night. A beautifully stripped-down set.
Taken from his recent Fabric mix for Resident Advisor, Jack Revill offers up a slow-burning set that ends at a trot.
Quirky pop-rock'n'roll influenced by The Replacements and early Kings of Leon.
Days of Youth
Fuzzy, hook-laden surf punk from Bournemouth. An interesting touch is the singer's colourless vocal.
Left Myself Behind
The rapidly rising indie-goths have already supported The Horrors. This eight-minute epic reveals real potential.
Dream-pop from Tokyo. The detached, inhuman bleeps and squelches are as sinister-sounding as they are cute.
One Second of Love
Four minutes of funky, feel-good electro pop.
