What's hot on our playlist

Karen O and Trent Reznor

Immigrant Song

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.

James Blake

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.

Jackmaster

RA Mix

Taken from his recent Fabric mix for Resident Advisor, Jack Revill offers up a slow-burning set that ends at a trot.

Cloud Nothings

Stay Useless

Quirky pop-rock'n'roll influenced by The Replacements and early Kings of Leon.

Bos Angeles

Days of Youth

Fuzzy, hook-laden surf punk from Bournemouth. An interesting touch is the singer's colourless vocal.

Toy

Left Myself Behind

The rapidly rising indie-goths have already supported The Horrors. This eight-minute epic reveals real potential.

Sapphire Slows

Animal Dreams

Dream-pop from Tokyo. The detached, inhuman bleeps and squelches are as sinister-sounding as they are cute.

Nite Jewell

One Second of Love

Four minutes of funky, feel-good electro pop.
