Still Corners

Endless Summer

Hazy songs about surfing and summer are everywhere right now but Still Corners have enough Jesus and Mary Chain about them to stand out.

Beck

Summertime

Quite why this loud and scuzzy song by Beck (below) hasn't been included with his other efforts on the 'Scott Pilgrim vs the World' soundtrack is a mystery.

Wavves

Mickey Mouse

From the 'King of the Beach' album, recorded with the late Jay Reatard's band, this song led to false rumours that Disney were planning to sue.

Yu(c)k

Automatic

This beautiful, stripped- down piano ballad from the indie rock band's new EP could be by Bon Iver.

Lo-Fi-Fnk

Layin' Lo

The b-side to the Swedish duo's up-tempo new single, "Sleepless", is a great slice of artful electro pop.

Gabby Young and Other Animals

We're All in This Together

A hit at the festivals, Gabby Young and her eight-piece band's single is a glorious, brooding, banjo-led ballad.

Darker My Love

Split Minute

The LA band recall Big Star on this track from their psych-rock LP 'Alive As You Are'.

Glasser

Apply

LA resident Cameron Mesirow (above) is Glasser, and she kicks off her debut LP, 'Ring', in confident style with this track full of militaristic drums, vocal yelps and electro sounds.
