Sarah Blasko 'We Won't Run'

Bold percussion and disarming vocals on this beguiling baroque pop highlight from the Australian's Bjorn Yttling-produced new album, showing just why she has won so many awards and plaudits down under.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy & The Cairo Gang 'Play, Guitar, Play'

Haunting acoustic preview to Will Oldham's new LP.

Janelle Monae 'Tightrope (featuring Big Boi)'

Star of the future Monae teams up with Outkast rapper Big Boi for an outstanding blast of uptempo R&B funk.

Coppers for Karma 'Femme Fatale'

A fine slice of Kooks-esque pop rock'n'roll from this hotly-tipped London band.

Lali Puna 'Remember'

Modern and beautiful, with an underlying romantic sentiment, this is a startling addition to the German electro band's forthcoming album, Our Inventions.

The Heartbreaks 'Liar, My Dear'

Achingly beautiful debut single from Morecambe's answer to The Smiths.
