The Mountain Goats Genesis 3:23

Breezily tuneful tale of a man haunting his old home, on chief Goat John Darnielle's new, Bible-themed album.

Henry Cowell Ostinato Pianissimo

Innovative gamelan-influenced percussion and piano piece from 1934; one of many avant-garde treasures in Earle Brown's reissued Contemporary Sound Series.

Jade Ewen featuring Chipmunk My Man (remix)

The Eurovision contender welcomes the dawn of a new urban-pop era with everyone's favourite schoolboy MC.

Lovvers 1-2-3-4 Count

From their recent second album, this track blends giddy surf-pop harmonies with Black Lips-like guitars and even a Richard Hell-esque mid-song breakdown.

Atlas Sound Walkabout

Made with the help of Noah Lennox of Animal Collective this is sublime experimental pop music.

The Very Best Yalira

Another beautiful afropop collaboration from singer Esau Mwamwaya and the Radioclit production team.
