Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs
This fantastic T Rex-esque B-side will be a definite highlight of the band's forthcoming London shows. Fans of 70s New York proto-punk will love them (pictured).
That Awful Sound
Little is known about this North Carolina native, but the three home-recorded tracks on his Soundcloud suggest he is a man of enormous potential.
Friend Like You
Birmingham is booming at the moment, with bands like Peace and Swim Deep easing into the mainstream well ahead of debut album releases. Jaws are yet another excellent band emanating from the UK's second city.
This self-released tribute to reggae's biggest name comes in the form of a cinematic rap cut packed with oddball synths and comedy lyrics.
Fixin To Die
The psych-house act claim that 'Led Zeppelin III' LP is their favourite album of all time, and Zep's rock'n'roll influence can be heard on this cover.
Best of Friends
The NME may be prone to superlatives, but in declaring this song the best of 2012 the magazine wasn't far wrong. Now that PV's debut album has been released, expect the hype around their best track to begin afresh.
Delving deeper into the synth-pop sound they explored on recent single 'Fireflies', Still Corners are clearly a band eager to embrace experimentalism.
