‘Blue Elvis’ (Dan Deacon Remix)
Made up of one part Future Islands and one part Double Dagger, Baltimore duo Peals‘ downbeat, spacey instrumentation is transformed into a bright electronica by the addition of admirable social networker Dan Deacon.

Janelle MonĂ¡e
‘Q.U.E.E.N.’ Feat. Erykah Badu
It probably goes without saying that this shining beacon of funk is one of the greatest things you’ll hear this year.

Sweet Baboo
‘Let’s Go Swimming Wild’
Frequently spotted sharing a stage with the likes of Slow Club and Cate Le Bon, multi-instrumentalist and all-round good guy Sweet Baboo‘s own band make irresistible, Beach Boys-flavoured indie-pop.
‘Let’s Go Swimming Wild’ is all organs and horns, and is darned beautiful.
