The Lemon Twigs
Foolin’ Around (4AD)
The Long Island D’Addario brothers are holed up making their second record, and dispense this barnstorming rock’n’roller from the studio. As a taster of what’s to come, it’s tasty indeed.

Hands is South London rapper Octavian’s darkest release yet. Punctuated with dubby bass, its stop-start rhythm hintsat enticing versatility.

Plan B goes full falsetto on this track from forthcoming record Heaven Before All Hell Breaks Loose, about something you should not do in Pret.

Melody’s Echo Chamber
Breathe In, Breathe Out (Domino)
Fun fact: Melody’s Echo Chamber (aka Melody Prochet) played her own drums on this track after learning aged 30. Better late than never, eh?
