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.
This is the third track to be leaked from one of the two albums the sinister Sacramento-based rap group is releasing this year. Dark and aggressive.
To Carry Many Small Things
The young Parisian specialises in cute and quirky pop.
Laid-back indie's unfashionable image isn't stopping this breezy Byrds-meets-Hüsker Dü jangle-fest from drawing praise in the blogosphere.
Featuring beats from the late Heavy D, Nas's new single is a celebratory, Jamaican dancehall-referencing affair.
Layers of reverb give a lo-fi feel to this eight-minute cut of pleasantly rambling dance.
Upon Viewing Oregon's Landscape with the Flood of Detritus
An unreleased demo as epic and impassioned as its title.
The hip-hop duo release their debut album next week. This track is a standout.
