Shannon and the Clams
Rip Van Winkle
The garage rock legends (above) turn their hand to a Ramones-influenced interpretation of the 19th-century short story.
Mike WiLL Made It's incredible production takes centre stage on this reworking of Ghost Town DJ's “My Boo”. Ciara, meanwhile, is re-emerging as a pop star of note.
I Like It Small

Smart Aleck Kid
New York's most exciting band release their first new music since debut LP “Light Up Gold” came out at the beginning of the year. This track continues their cerebral take on Voidoids-esque gutter-rock.
Dark and somewhat sinister, this track was a stand-out at the South Londoners' recent dates with Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs.
