This week’s essential tunes on the OTR jukebox. Please feel free to add your own selections below.

Highlife “Best Bless EP” (The Social Registry)

Beautifully off-kilter Afropop grooves from Gang Gang Dance/White Magic member Sleepy Doug Shaw’s other project.

Skream] “Outside the Box” (Tempa)

New bag of dubstep highlighters from Oliver James. Loving “Finally” with La Roux supplying the bittersweet, lovelorn vocal stings.

The Naked & Famous “Young Blood” (Neon Gold)

More sublime pop from the Antipodes. This time, it’s a summertime boom tune from an Auckland band who’ve already topped the New Zealand charts with this track.

Sleigh Bells “Treats” (N.E.E.T.)

Still better than a double-espresso for getting the morning started. Fuzzy freak-scene pop with oodles of sparkle.

Various “Black Girl” (Concord/BGP)

Rare-as-they-come blaxploitation soundtrack from Ossie Davis’ 1972 flick featuring Betty Everett, Walter Hawkins and others.
