What's hot on our playlist

The Low Anthem Charlie Darwin

This week's natural selection, a haunting paean to evolutionary debate, sung in other-worldly falsetto.

Alan Pownwall Clara

This jaunty acoustic pop single from the London-based Pownall is only to be released as a limited-edition 7in, but it's on his Myspace page, too.

Donae'o I

A melodic cut that sways on the right side of UK funky.

Neil Young Out on the Weekend

Prepare for Young's festival appearances with this exquisitely laid-back opener to the classic Harvest.

Jay-Z DOA (Death of Auto-Tune)

In which our hero returns to save rap from Auto-Tune vocals.

Yoko Ono The Sun is Down (Cornelius mix)

Bleeps reign in a track mixed by Japanese musical polymath Cornelius. She returns with her Plastic Ono Band on the "Don't Stop Me!" EP.
