What's hot on our playlist
Lana Del Rey
LDR's new single is big on vintage glamour, smouldering like Nancy Sinatra with rockabilly guitars and casual references to James Dean.
Taken from Odd Future's new mixtape, the group's in-house crooner returns with a soulful track based around little more than piano and voice.

Layers of reverb give a lo-fi feel to this eight-minute cut of pleasantly rambling dance.
