1. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club took their name from the motorcycle
gang in the cult classic movie “The Wild One” starring Marlon Brando.
This is the title track from their 5th studio album released last
year. BRMC’s influences include Sonic Youth, The Velvet Underground
and Jesus and the Mary Chain.

2. Coronado features on Deerhunter’s 4th album, Halcyon Digest. Hugely
talented lead singer and guitarist Brandon Cox, who also has a solo
project Atlas Sound, had this to say "I wanted that sax on there
because I was listening to the Stones' Exile On Main Street reissue a
lot...I began to see a pattern forming. Saxophones are becoming this
thing. That's why we did it early. Next year everyone's gonna have a
saxophone on their record because saxophones are just cool." He
continued “This is gonna sound random and cutesy, but I've always had
this fantasy of having a dog named Saxophone. Saxophone is one of my
favourite words."

3. UK funky / 2 step / garage legend MJ Cole is by far one of my
favourite producers at the moment. Taken from the 2010 Volcano Riddim
EP released on Cole’s own label Prolific Recordings.

4. SBTRKT is an anonymous tribal masked producer/dj from London. Check
for releases on the equally anonymous labels Brainmath, Ramp
Recordings and Young Turks. This track was given away free on
soundcloud.

5. Mogwai back with another outstanding album, Hardcore Will Never
Die, But You Will. George Square Thatcher Death Party is slightly
unusual because it features vocals, a sound not normally associated
with Mogwai. Mogwai have been responsible to a slew of great track
titles such as I love you, I’m going to blow up your school; I’m Jim
Morrison, I’m Dead; Travel is Dangerous & Boring Machines Disturbs
Sleep; but I think George Square Thatcher Death Party tops them all.
The ex-Prime Minister Maggie Thatcher is universally hated in Scotland
after she decided to use the Scots as guinea pigs for her new poll
tax. George Square is in the heart of Glasgow. ‘Nuff said!

6. Grizzly Bear released the critically acclaimed Veckatimest back in
May 2009. The album was listed in the top 10 albums of the year by
reputable sources such as Pitchfork, The New York Times & Time amongst
others. They are signed to the legendary Warp label and opened for
Radiohead during their 2008 North American tour.

7. What needs to be said about Radiohead that hasn’t been said before?
I’m thinking nothing, but I’ll give it a bash. One of the very few
famous bands that aren’t afraid to change their style or move in a
completely different direction. I love the worldwide event that is a
Radiohead album launch and also the fact that nobody has a clue what
the album will sound like. I’m sure this angers the Pablo Honey/The
Bends fans, but there are many more people out there that love them
for it. They were once again making headlines this week for their
unorthodox ways of promotion. See here for more details

8. Track taken from a 7inch released on Mad Decent 2010. In Diplo’s
own words "[Bosco is] a sort of garbage can Elvis from New Jersey...
teaspoon craziness, a pinch of rockabilly, and full cup of soul
dressed in a leather jacket. He can't be topped as far as song
writing... He's doin’ the music I wish I could if I had bought a
guitar."

9. I was stunned when A Sufi and a Killer failed to make it onto
pitchfork’s top 50 albums of 2010. I felt it should have been there
and the artist should have been receiving many more plaudits for a
fantastic album. Ah well..i guess he’ll have to be content with being
signed to Warp records and working with fantastically skilled
producers such as Gaslamp Killer and Flying Lotus.

10. The first track from one of 2010’s most critically acclaimed
albums Innerspeaker. “The album sounds like what would happen if The
Beatles took even more drugs with a dash of Cream.”

11. Given away free on Li’s website it’s one of the many catchy tracks
on her 2011 album Wounded Rhymes. Check the lyrics and free download
on the link below. Ps. Could somebody please let us know how to
correctly pronounce this lady’s name?
