The Playlist: Frank Ocean / Teengirl Fantasy / Yeasayer / Donna Summer / Florence & The Machine / The Bee Gees / Oh No ft. MF Doom
Frank Ocean - 'Summer Remains'
A refreshingly low-key YouTube release from this hip hop star.
Teengirl Fantasy - 'Motif'
A fine new 7'' single from the electro duo. A new album is out this year.
Yeasayer - 'Henrietta'
The Brooklyn-based band announce their return with this funky, commercial, indie pop cut.
Donna Summer - 'Hot Stuff'
This immortal party hit by the late disco queen is the perfect summer anthem.
Florence & the Machine - 'Shake It Out'
The flame-haired singer will perform this Ivor Novello-nominated belter when she headlines Bestival this September.
The Bee Gees - 'I Started A Joke'
Hear the late Robin Gibb singing one of his best songs, which he wrote for the group in their excellent early, pre-disco era.
Oh No ft. MF Doom - '3 Dollars'
Cartoonish gangster rap packed with synthetic Nineties horns and rich 808 beats.
