The Barometer: Kid Cudi; Mona; Kele; Brother; Axwell; Moon Unit Zappa; French Kissing; Pulp
What's hot on our playlist
Featuring GLC, Chip the Ripper and Nicole Wray, Cudi's laid-back beats sit nicely behind his guests' vocal energy.
Trouble on the Way
We tipped them a few months back, but Mona's Kings of Leon-esque second single is bound to make them massive.
On the Lam (Stanton Warriors Remix)
"On the Lam" is only a week old, but remixes are already appearing everywhere. Stanton Warriors' dark and moody cut stands out.
Rumoured to have signed to Geffen Records for £200,000, these mega-hyped Britpop revivalists have a lot to live up to. The jury remains out.
Watch the Sunrise (Vocal Dub)
It's only November, but if this track is anything to go by 2011 will feature as much perfect sunshine pop as 2010.
Moon Unit Zappa
Using archive footage of her late father, this "duet" was performed for the first time at a recent Zappa tribute concert.
A perfect slice of Buddy Holly-esque pop rock. FK play their last show of 2010 at London's Macbeth next week.
Do You Remember the First Time?
Sheffield's greatest ever band (sorry Arctic Monkeys, but Pulp are a different class) are reforming next year. Expect this emotive anthem to soundtrack any mid-1990s nostalgia in the rundown to their first live shows 14 years.
