The Independent Culture


Menomena, Dirty Cartoons

Clean guitar, piano and mellow vocals build up to throbbing bass and affecting atmospherics on the Portland art-rockers' new album.

The Coral, Butterfly House

A magical title-song that blends Crosby, Stills and Nash harmonies. From the Merseyside band's sixth album.

Cee-Lo Green, No One's Gonna Love You (Paul Epworth Mix)

The voice of Gnarls Barkley offers a taster of his upcoming solo LP, with the Paul Epworth mix of his classy neo-Motown interpretation of a Band of Horses' track.

Frankie Rose & the Outs, Little Brown Haired Girls

Beautifully hazy art-rock from the former Vivian Girl.

Maximum Balloon, Tiger (featuring Aku)

A new side-project from TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek adds bounce and addictive dance rhythms to his band's familiar soundscapes.

Chilly Gonzales, Never Stop (Rap Mix)

The oddball Canadian performer fuses piano and verbose rap to sparkling effect on his new track.

Public Image Limited, Public Image

Ties the Sex Pistols' four-chord rage to John Lydon's experiments in art rock. Sure to be a favourite on their summer reunion tour.

Mark Ronson, Bang Bang Bang (featuring MDNR & Q-Tip)

This new track shows that there is plenty to look forward to from Ronson's forthcoming new album, and it rescues Q-Tip's career, too.
