What's hot on our playlist
Posted on the producer's SoundCloud page last week, this is a thick, throbbing slice of glitch-pop magic.
God's Father Mixtape
Mixing previously released tracks such as "I Own Swag' with new songs, Lil B's latest release comes as a 34-track stream and free download.
Guided by Voices
Keep It in Motion
The veteran indie band will be releasing their 18th single "Jon the Croc" through Fire on 19 March. This is that song's excellent b-side.
Sleigh Bells' recent releases are becoming a fixture of this column. True to form, we're struggling to ignore this Maida Vale session cover of Beyoncé's single.
Picture Perfect World
Beth Ditto's diva-punk crew return with this power-pop-influenced track – premiered on Radio 1 earlier in the week.
Dream-pop's commercial bubble may have burst, but Beach House, thankfully, refuse to ditch their echo-laden vocals and hazy, lethargic guitars.
Keep Shelly in Athens
Our Own Dream
The video for this eerie, synth-led track was put out to accompany the two-piece band's debut EP release.
Please Forgive My Heart
This song, produced by Damon Albarn, is the soul star's first release in almost 20 years.
A weighty, downbeat track from the follow-up to their hedonistic debut.
