My Bloody Valentine

Only Tomorrow

The second track on the band's long-awaited reunion album is as anthemic, dark and complex as any serious fan would hope. A rich return, packed with futuristic guitars.

Melody's Echo Chamber

Je Me Perds de Vue

A bright and breezy little indie-pop number, brought to you by one of France's hottest new talents (above). UK gigs have been announced for this spring.


Started From the Bottom

As ever, Drake's braggadocio dominates the track, but it's producer Kendrick Lamar's beats and instrumental hooks that set it apart from his recent work.

Action Bronson

Strictly 4 the Jeeps

Borrowing liberally from the EPMD track Rampage, Bronson and producer Harry Fraud create a lively track that “hates on” the Albanian-American rapper's band of hangers on.

Local Natives

You and I

Released last week in the UK, the band's latest single comes from the Natives' acclaimed new album, “Hummingbird”
