Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs

Be Nice

This fantastic T Rex-esque B-side will be a definite highlight of the band's forthcoming London shows. Fans of 70s New York proto-punk will love them (pictured).

Jackson Scott

That Awful Sound

Little is known about this North Carolina native, but the three home-recorded tracks on his Soundcloud suggest he is a man of enormous potential.

Jaws

Friend Like You

Birmingham is booming at the moment, with bands like Peace and Swim Deep easing into the mainstream well ahead of debut album releases. Jaws are yet another excellent band emanating from the UK's second city.

Gucci Mane

Bob Marley

This self-released tribute to reggae's biggest name comes in the form of a cinematic rap cut packed with oddball synths and comedy lyrics.

Pink Skull

Fixin To Die

The psych-house act claim that 'Led Zeppelin III' LP is their favourite album of all time, and Zep's rock'n'roll influence can be heard on this cover.

Palma Violets

Best of Friends

The NME may be prone to superlatives, but in declaring this song the best of 2012 the magazine wasn't far wrong. Now that PV's debut album has been released, expect the hype around their best track to begin afresh.

Still Corners

Berlin Lovers

Delving deeper into the synth-pop sound they explored on recent single 'Fireflies', Still Corners are clearly a band eager to embrace experimentalism.
