The essential tunes in the OTR office this week. Please feel free to tell us the tunes rocking your world below.

ASAP Rocky “Out of This World” (Polo Grounds)

New-school New York rap shizzle from the Harlem born-and-bred MC destined for bigger things in 2012 on the back of tunes like this one, “Peso” and “Purple Swag”

Little Xs for Eyes “S.A.D.” (Self release)

Debut album from the Dublin-based group blessed with dashing harmonies and wistful, wry, infectious tunes.

Grimes “Oblivion” (Arbutus)

One of our finds at SXSW 2011, Montreal’s Claire Boucher gets ready for lift-off with this hypnotic groove from forthcoming album “Visions”.

The Lijadu Sisters “Afro-Beat Soul Sisters” (Soul Jazz)

Superb compilation of the Nigerian twin sisters’ heavyweight Afrofunk releases for the Afrodisia label from 1976 to 1979.

Leslie Winer “Witch” (Transglobal)

From 1993, Leslie Winer’s debut remains a rare gem, an album of spacey, dubby, blunted beats and trippy, enigmatic lyrics.
