The Phoenix Foundation

Alicia Keys Dreaming
A soulful, luscious cut from the singer's forthcoming album, The Element of Freedom.
Rain Machine Smiling Black Faces
The solo album by TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone has been out for a few months but we keep returning to this stirring and stunning ballad about racism in America.
Rolling Stones Wild Horses
Their 1971 mellow ballad is soon to be troubling the charts following a reissue on digital format.
Animal Collective What Would I Want? Sky
Not content with making one of the best albums of 2009, they're back with an EP, "Fall Be Kind", another gorgeous expression of their ever-evolving sound.
The Muppets Bohemian Rhapsody
Yes, the puppets have done their own unique take on the Queen epic. See it on YouTube. It's just fantastic.
