What's hot on our playlist
Featuring Diddy, this track mixes David Icke's paranoid rationale with Soulja Boy's simplistic beats and gangster-rap bravado.
With its falsetto vocals and chirpy flutes, this song is easy to dismiss as an ironic nod to the 1970s. There's sincerity beneath the smile, however, and quality to the writing.
The second single from Cohen's new studio album is bluesy, brooding and darkly humorous. Think "I'm Your Man" or even Bob Dylan's "Things Have Changed".
The War on Drugs
Don't Fear the Ghost
A heady mix of 1970s prog-rock and the Stone Roses' more experimental moments.
Please Be My Third Eye
Katy Goodman makes short, snappy, new-wave pop, influenced by the likes of Blondie, Long Blondes and Best Coast.
King Khan and the Shrines
Bite My Tongue
Bratty garage-rock that neatly mixes Stax Records' horns with The Standells' riffs.
Be Around U
Starting as an unsettling ballad that makes the refrain sound like a threat, this track quickly veers off into trance.
Mary Ann Hobbs Mix
Kindness's recent 23-minute XFM session featured this mix of 10 tracks by everyone from Stevie Wonder to Silo Pass.
My Best Fiend
Vast, fuzzy indie-pop from the Brooklyn band's debut LP.
