10 tracks for your investigative nature and your listening pleasure.

Some of which came recommended, some should never be forgotten, and some of which are brand-new and fresh.

“Cause = Time” by Broken Social Scene:

In gleeful homage to their current sold out UK tour this seminal track taken from (“Forgot It In People”) one of the most revered albums of the noughties. Scoped like a road movie, you just live for moments like the free and easy swing-by intro and that sublime baseline which is to die for, allied with some rather lush instrumentation. You are rendered feeling glorious and that’s before you get to a truly great lead guitar riff. Underpin all that with thought provoking lyrics and you have why this song is so very, very special. Indie-rock just doesn’t come much better than this...

“Chinchilla” by This Town

Needs Guns: A band that stands tall amongst their indie peers for their mighty and progressive drum- ming, amazing guitar workings and impressive vocals. We look for- ward to the follow up to their bril- liant 2008 released album “Animal” but until then we remember this track which is so very, very indie- cool and kinda funky. Cue pogoing round office.

“Boy” by Lights On:

Feels almost like the rush you get when you are madly in-love; its heart skips a beat rhythm has great pick-ups and breakdowns. How- ever you slice it this song is undeni-

ably catchy, a quality that earns it a place on this month’s playlist.

“Puzzle” by Ana Brun:

Haunting piano accompanied with “shiver-me-timbers” style strings, with chilling but beautifully played xylophones. A smart, stylistically sung, artfully written tale of the pieces of a puzzle being her broken heart. She begins to mend it togeth- er starting as you do with puzzles, from the corners.

“Happy Dre” by Sky Ferreria:

Borrowing the instrumental from Dr Dre’s hit joint “Still” could be considered su- perwoman daring. But LA’s femme Sky Ferreria dares and delivers some rather hard-knock hitting lyrics with copious amounts style and wrings out something pretty fresh.

“Stillness Is The Move” by Dirty Projectors:

It was this time last year that this wondrous song began to seep through on to blogosphere. Ex- pressively presented in bold musi-




cal colours with its bedrock being a fat R&B backing track and one of the most unforgettable fe- male vocal performances you’ll ever wish to hear.

“Idiot Heart” by Sunset Rub-

down: A track with no end of per- sonality. From the rev rev guitar upon the intro, to lyrics like “I was

never much of a dancer but I know enough to know you got to move” This six minute wonder is one hell of a serious tune. The vocals, of which sounds a little like David Bowie, builds and builds and builds as the drums and guitar scamper, romp and gallop to an astonishing climax. A truly incredible record and certainly one of the best of last year.

“The Illusionist” by Yosei:

Brand new and extremely good for you, are Swedish alternative folk outfit Yosei (Japanese for Fairy) taken from a rather cute little al-

bum entitled “The Wind-Up Waltz” which encompasses folk, jazz, pop. This particular song kinks on indie- guitar with a splice of pop. The stream-of-consciousness lyrics ex- tolling the yearning for pastures is quite appealing and the euphoric outtro makes for a surprise summer delight.

“Angels Echo” by Four Tet:

A repetitive but no less emotive four to the floor house tune. Dreamy, hazy atmospherics spliced with cut-up vocal snippets, then before you know it you locked into its in- cessant groove.

“Collector” by Here We Go Magic:

New York darlings Here We Go Magic return with a brand new al- bum due out this summer and as a prelude “Collector” available on free download is destined to be a summer smash. A perfect pick-me- up for the very long winter we have had to endure, its Beach Boy easy on the ear joy and exuberance is as unyielding as it is brilliant. (Thanx Law)
