The Playlist: Green Day/ Haunted Hearts/Interpol/ Big Momma ft. Cakes da Killa/ Maya Jane Coles/ Eat Skull
Billie Joe may remain in rehab following his onstage breakdown, but the final instalment of the band's 'Uno Dos Tre' album trilogy is all set for release. This Beatlesy ballad is its opening track.
Something That Feels Bad Is Something That Feels Good
Poppy college rock that makes heavy use of its Ramones and Hüsker Dü influences. Fans of proto-Britpop will approve.
Ten years on, Interpol's debut sounds like a perfect snapshot of early 2000s indie rock before it got boring. An extensive anniversary edition of the LP was released earlier this week.
Big Momma ft. Cakes da Killa
Thin production and a skittish beat perfectly compliment Big Momma and Cakes' machine-gun delivery. Stark hip-hop confident in its own simplicity.
Maya Jane Coles
Easier to Hide
A long-time fixture on the dance music festival circuit, Coles has really come of age in 2012. This is the lead track from her new self-produced, self-released EP.
How Do I Know When to Say Goodnight
The US band has moved away from their rock roots to an electronic sound that isn't a million miles away from The Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows".
