Do I Love You?
What frontman Jonny Pearce lacks in vocal power is more than made up for in quirky arrangements and layers of reverb on this Ronettes cover.
The long wait for new Burial material is over with this excellent three-track EP. Ultra-dark synths accompany UK-garage beats to create 2012's gloomiest dance release.
Despite a swamping bass and moments of heady psychedelica, this track from Claire Bouche's new album, 'Visions', still retains a commercial feel .
More Odd Future–affiliated madness – this time from the group's elusive poet laureate.
How to Dress Well
Part of a fundraiser for Ad Hoc publications, this Xiu Xiu cover features a melodramatic, a cappella vocal manipulated by special effects.
Jingly-jangly indie-pop released as the B-side to forthcoming single 'Shallow'.
Grunge revivalists mixing classic rock's brutal riffs with hardcore punk's raw vocals.
So Long, Marianne
This countrified cover retains much of Leonard Cohen's original majesty, while giving the song a tougher edge via an overdriven electric guitar.
The Van Doos
Black It Out
It's 1995 revisited. Pulp's hooks, tones and festival-sized choruses are a clear influence.
