The Big Pink
Hit The Ground (Superman)
In sampling Laurie Anderson's 1981 art-pop classic "O Superman", The Big Pink have created yet another anthemic, exasperatingly catchy indie hit.
Let It Fall
A huge, industrial electro track packed with throbbing bass, subtle synths and breathtaking "drops". Jakwob sets the bar high on this first taster from his debut album.
The latest single from Wu Lyf's excellent debut is a typically euphoric number, cloaked in reverb and driven by a chiming afrobeat guitar.
This chilled-out electronica track builds slowly but retains a sparse arrangement and Burial-esque, skittish beats.
Complex rap gymnastics performed over a simplistic drum machine beat and rave sirens.
This London-based, Nigerian singer-songwriter makes gorgeous, timeless acoustic pop.
All We Are
Come Back Safe
Intelligent folk-pop that revolves around a George Harrison-style guitar hook. Refreshingly out of sync with most indie buzzbands.
Jittery pop-punk taking additional influence from afro-beat, glam and trad-country.
Easy Way Out
The follow-up to "Somebody That I Used to Know" is pure electro-rock fuzz.
