The Barometer: Summer Camp; Bat for Lashes/Beck; Best Coast; MIA; Interpol; The-Dream; Dirty Projectors/Bjork; Rammellzee & K Rob
Summer Camp, Round the Moon
The next single from the rising duo Summer Camp has dreamy, soft vocals play out over sublime beats. Lovely.
Bat for Lashes/Beck, Let's Get Lost
A suitably moody and atmospheric ballad to accompany the brooding teenage vampires on the latest 'Twilight' film soundtrack.
Best Coast, Boyfriend
Californian Bethany Cosentino offers up a lovely slice of wistful noise-pop on the first track to emerge from her forthcoming LP 'Crazy for You'.
Not a cover of the boozy 1990s Terrorvision hit, but an abrasive and addictive taste of things to come from MIA's much discussed new album.
Released as a free download last week, this track from their forthcoming self-titled album shows that Interpol have still got plenty in the tank.
More Prince than Prince himself: sparkling and sleek 1980s tinged R&B pop, from the aptly titled new record, 'Love King'.
Dirty Projectors/Bjork, All We Are
The unlikely collaboration between band and singer has produced a seven-song suite; this is its delicate conclusion.
Rammellzee & K Rob, Beat Bop
The New York hip-hop pioneer Rammellzee died earlier in the week. This immense 10- minute track from 1982, made with K Rob, is perhaps his finest work.
