Los Campesinos!

Tiptoe Through the True Bits

Recorded during the Hello Sadness album sessions, this track finally has a formal release.

Blood Diamonds featuring Grimes

Phone Sex

Yet another strong release from 4AD. BD's recruitment of the 'artist of the moment' is inspired.



The latest single from Friends' debut LP is a thin and funky pop number with a Smiths-style vocal hook.

Big Boi and Theophilus London featuring Tre Luce

She Said OK

A far-from-subtle slow jam from the trio. The sexually explicit lyrics are more than matched by a sleazy 1970s bass line.

Ty Segall


Loud and snotty garage rock'n'roll that recalls early Supergrass.
