This week’s essential tunes from OTR and guest selector, Yannis from Foals. Please feel free to add your own selections.

Renee Fleming “Intervention” (Decca)

New York Metropolitan Opera diva Renee Fleming’s striking version of the Arcade Fire classic.

The Gaslight Anthem “American Slang” (Side One Dummy)

Proof that there’s more to the Garden State than Jersey Shore. Title track from The Gaslight Anthem’s new album sees them back in the eye of the hurricane.

New Amusement “My Captain” (Any Other City)

Robust, likable debut album from the Dublin band whose apprenticeship has produced a clutch of strong EPs.

M.I.A. “Born Free” (XL)

Bracing blast of Suicide- sampling punk rock taken from everyone’s favourite rabble-rouser’s imminent third album. Warning: the video is probably NSFW and may cause offence to red-heads.

Jeru Da Damaja “The Sun Rises in the East” (PayDay)

“Incredible production from DJ Premier, and Jeru’s style is refreshingly free of hip-hop cliches.” – Selected by Yanni Philippakis from Foals.
