Santigold “Big Mouth” (Atlantic)

Gleeful congatastic taster from Santigold’s forthcoming second album. We’re also hoping for another live show too, to go with last summer’s Electric Picnic sizzler. Download track for free from her website.

Lee Fields “Faithful Man” (Truth & Soul)

The return of the soulman: Lee Fields’ follow-up to “My World” is chockablock with raw soul, vintage funk and songs of love, heartbreak and the blues like this one, “You’re the Kind Of Girl”

Jonathan Wilson “Gentle Spirit” (Bella Union)

Hypnotic, slow-motion, hazy, folky pop from the man seeking to recreate the halycon days of Laurel Canyon.

Toy “Left Myself Behind” (Heavenly)

Dastardly garage-rock wig-out with Krautrock fringing from east London mob in cahoots with The Horrors.
