What's hot on our playlist
A BRIT winner now at just 21, this is a highlight from the folk star's exceptional second album, 'I Speak Because I Can'.
Grunge guitars and sing-along choruses – Yuck grab you by the ears and drag you back to the 1990s. In a good way.
Don't be put off by the fact this will soon soundtrack a perfume ad. Khan, aka Bat for Lashes turns this Depeche Mode song into a sexy, ethereal slice of musical goodness.
Distorted guitars ensure OM's trademark sleazy glamour infuses this track. The first single from their overlooked 2010 album, 'False Priests'.
An understated offering. The Memphis-based band make gentle, tinny indie pop with a hint of Pavement. Awkward, but endearingly so.
Architecture in Helsinki
Perfectly imperfect pop. Contact High moves away from AiH's trad-indie towards a more overtly electro sound.
DieAntwoord Vs Enya
Orinoco Ninja Flow (Wedding DJs remix)
This utterly insane reworking of Enya's 1990s hit comes all the way from South Africa.
Re-listening to this great Paul Revere cover (almost) makes the reunion sound appealing.
