The Magnetic Fields You Must Be Out Of Your Mind

With lovely melodies and acerbic lyrics, Stephen Merritt is on fine form for the first track of new album 'Realism'.

Kate and Anna McGarrigle Swimming Song

This funny and joyful track from the sisters' heyday, and written by Kate's ex-husband, Loudon Wainwright, is a good way to remember Kate, who died this week.

Phillip Oskar Augustine Internal Combustion

Dreamy surf-pop is all the rage now and this gorgeous effort is a worthy addition to the ever-expanding genre.

Peter Gabriel Mirrorball

This Elbow cover is from Gabriel's forthcoming 'Scratch My Back' project, for which artists exchange songs with each other.

Gil Scott-Heron Me And The Devil

His first single in over a decade comes from forthcoming LP 'I'm New Here' and is brilliantly dark and brooding. Look out, too, for the eerie promo video.

Borgore Ice Cream

Foul-mouthed Israeli dubstep is just what we needed.
