Speech Debelle Spinnin'

Strident rhymes and jazzy rhythms meet in a defiant low-key anthem from Deblle's Mercury Prize winning album, 'Speech Therapy'.

Chipmunk Oopsy Daisy

Washed Out Feel It All Around

This delicious slice of arty pyschedeila will make you want to lie down in the sun and let the day float on by.

Bassekou Kouyate Torin Torin

A tantalising appetiser from Bassekou Kouyate's stunning new album shows the king of the ngoni on funkier form than ever.

Fever Ray Here Before

From a limited edition 7" single, the Swedish electro artist covers Vashti Bunyan with typical eerie aplomb.

Warpaint Billie Holiday

Smoky harmonies and dreamy pop combine in a beautiful track from the LA band's EP, 'Exquisite Corpse'.
