Vampire Weekend Horchata
The lead track from the Weekend's forthcoming second album is guitarless, percussive and light as air; lovely.
Dionne Bromfield Foolish Little Girl
The extra endorsement by godmother Amy Winehouse might have its pros and cons, but on her own accord, the retro vocals and sassy style is pretty impressive
Bat for Lashes Pearl's Dream (Skream remix)
Leading dubstep producer Skream works beats, synths and spacey magic on a track from Ms Khan's second LP.
Dead Man's Bones My Body's A Zombie For You
Actor Ryan Gosling is one half of this duo, but it's no mere vanity project; this song is rousing and beautiful.
Girls True Love Will Find You In The End
Hipster band of the moment Girls do a heartfelt and lovely acoustic cover of the Daniel Jonhston song..
Beastie Boys I Don't Know
With their 1998 album "Hello Nasty" re-released recently, it's a perfect moment to revisit this surprising acoustic gem with softly sung vocals by MCA.
