Nine of the best tracks of the last seven days featuring key cuts from Wild Nothing, Bombay Bicycle Club, Crystal Fighters, Onra, R.S.A.G and more.

  1. Crystal Fighters – ‘Summer’
    A bonkers single from the Spanish band. It sounds like smashing songs together in a wind tunnel or Yeasayer if they really did take lots of drugs. You can download it for free from the band.
  2. Wild Nothing – ‘Chinatown’
    Instant happiness from Virginia’s Wild Nothing. Album Gemini comes recommended from me – lo-fi, shoegazey, acid-washed stuff.
  3. M.I.A. – ‘XXXO’ feat Jay-Z
    As much as Maya Arulpragasam’s “look at me, i’m spouting off” publicity campaign is getting on my tits, this tune remains a constant that reminds me, despite the silly album title, the gingercide video and the NY Times “I said / she said” bullshit, that she might actually produce a good third album. Here Jay-Z provides a short verse that gives you an excuse to listen on repeat once again. Another track debuted last night ‘Steppin’ Up’ with what must a Rusko’s production.

A new look weekly chart featuring ten of my most-played tracks this week.

This time around the chart features key cuts from Harlem, Solar Bears, Arcade Fire, Tieranniesaur, Madvillain, The Joy Formidable, Monarchy’s Kelis remix, Jay Electronica, R.S.A.G and Digital Farm Animals.

  1. Arcade Fire – ‘The Suburbs’
    My favourite of the two new tracks from the new 12″ which has grown in stature with each listen.
  2. Tieranniesaur – ‘Sketch!’
    The best compilation to come out of Ireland in a long time and best of all, Popical Island #1 showcases 15 bright new indie-pop gems you maybe didn’t know this country had.
  3. Harlem – ‘Friendly Ghost’
    Jangly indie-rock from Austin three-piece Harlem’s Hippies album out now on Matador.

monarchy Monarchy are an enigmatic band who’ve received a fair amount of attention here in the last five months or so thanks to great electro-tinged songs like ‘The Phoenix Alive’, ‘Gold in the Fire’, ‘Black is the Colour of my Heart’ and a remix of Marina amongst others.

There’s plenty going on in Monarchy-world. The band will release an album soon, will start playing live shows, are working on video concepts and have just remixed Lady Gaga and Kelis. Below you can hear a great new tune from them called ‘It Must Be Love’.

In a new feature called 3×3, designed to get you some cold hard yet interesting facts, I asked the band for three answers to three questions (making up … nine, yes you guessed it – i’m a saddo) but before that here the band who formerly traded as Miike, explain how why the mystery around them is so important:

There’s an overindulgence of trivia surrounding most musicians these days, which completely eclipses the music. In many ways the musicians, because of the microscopic attention to their lives, have become sanitised and bland. We don’t feel inclined to add to that horn of plenty, and so we are removing ourselves from that game. People like Calvin Harris, makes quite good music, but is a really dull person. Why does he Twitter his dullness to the world? We don’t have an answer for that.

kitsune Kitsuné Maison compilations are always worth a listen considering previous compilations have debuted tracks from La Roux, We Have Band, Memory Tapes, MEN, The Drums, The Golden Filter and Two Door Cinema Club.

Number 9 in the series is out on the 26th of April and features tracks from Penguin Prison, Washed Out, yesterday’s just-introduced Jamaica, Crookers, Holy Ghost!, Monarchy, Hurts, Silver Column and more. Future music in the true sense of the word. Here’s a minimix by Jbag to give you an idea of what’s on it (The Holy Ghost! track sounds awesome).

One of the bands recently featured on my top 20 bands to watch for 2010 feature, Monarchy remix fellow Neon Gold artist (now alumnus) Marina and the Diamonds. I’ve had one listen to The Family Jewels so far and as expected, it’s a great pop album. I’m not sure how it will go over in mainstream pop circles but time will tell on that one. Need more listens plz. You can listen to 30 second previews in the iTunes UK store.

With regards to the remixers on this occasion, Monarchy have since been revealed as the band formerly know as Miike. That’s the past. This is their future. “What does that mean?” I don’t know for it is Friday and my eyes are hanging out of my sockets. Here is a remix to distract you from this badly-written post.

What follows is four pages of my personal picks for artists I’m looking forward to hearing much more of in 2010. Featured artists include RUBIK, Baby Monster, I Am the Cosmos, Two Door Cinema Club, May 68, Sam Amidon, O Emperor, Manus Goan, Jay Electronica, MNDR, Surfer Blood, Lonelady, a host of Box Social-related artists and more. Enjoy.

1. Sleigh Bells

Practically unheard of before CMJ in October last year, Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss’ punky take on lo-fi dance-rock made an impression with many at that festival. The fact that they are currently working with Diplo gives me hope that they can turn these rough demos into something that’ll translate equally room-shaking yet less abrasive on the ears (i.e – something you can actually play in a club).

MP3: Sleigh Bells – A/B Machines

MP3: Sleigh Bells – Crown on the Ground
