Justin Timberlake ft. Jay-Z
Suit and Tie
The R&B star-turned-actor looks back to smooth 1970s soul on a comeback single. A slick return, let down somewhat by an unusually uninspired verse by Jay-Z.
The latest single by one of 2013's most tipped guitar bands. Foals are a clear influence on Peace, but there's an added carefree joy to this band.
Produced by DJ Premier, this Nas-esque number is Mr Bada$$'s first foray into the real rap mainstream.
An oddly structured song that demands to be analysed over repeat listens.
Making a return after four years, the Pennsylvanian punks are on blisteringly hot form.
Another of 2013's hotly tipped guitar groups, the Tampa, Florida-based band perform dark-and-dirty post-punk. Merchandise are definite ones to watch over the course of the year.
Life Ends at 30
This depressingly titled, 12-minute long song is the final track on electronic noisenik Swanson's forthcoming 'Punk Authority' EP. A brutal soundscape, the whole thing throbs with a droning, heavy energy.
Books And it is whizzpopping!
