The Drums - Forever and Ever Amen
Euphoric choruses and palpitation-inducing basslines are all that prevent the Drums from turning into an indie Backstreet Boys. Despite this, we can't help liking them.

Phosphorescent - Nothing Was Stolen
Wistful, harmony-filled country-rock from Matthew Houck's gorgeous new album 'Here's to Taking it Easy'.

Silver Columns - Brow Beaten
One of the giddy electro highlights from the dance duo's debut LP 'Yes and Dance', released next week.

Flying Lotus - Heave (n)
The electronica producer adds this trippy jam to his acclaimed body of work.

Klaxons - Flashover
The first track to be unveiled online from the long-awaited follow-up to the Mercury Prize-winners' debut.

Warpaint - Elephants
The all-girl LA quartet have been wooing UK audiences recently. This track, from last year's debut EP, is a fine taste of their dusty, alt-country meets psych-rock sound.

Villagers - Becoming a Jackal
Poetic, delicately arranged pop from Conor O'Brien who has a fan in Radiohead's Ed O'Brien and has supported Neil Young. See him on tour next month.

Charlotte Gainsbourg - Time of the Assassins
This dreamy, slow-burning track from the French singer's acclaimed LP 'IRM' has a beautifully shot new video.
