Here are the latest New Music selections from the On The Record column in tomorrow’s edition of The Ticket. Please feel free to share tips below or check out all past New Music selections here.

Ratking

New York collective fusing bratty, hip-hop and exuberent, headstrong hardcore attitude along similar lines to Odd Future and early Beastie Boys. “Wiki93″ EP out now on Hot Charity and album due from MCs Hak and Wiki (AKA Irish-American Patrick Morales) and producers Sporting Life and Ramon in 2013.

Paradise

London duo Paradise’s latest track “Endless Wave” is a bit of an instant earworm, one of those nigh-on-perfect indie anthems which promises much greatness to come. You’ll find yourself returning to its blissful sway time and time again.

Sweet, charming and robust electropop with a little touch of Grimes here and a little dab of Lykke Li there from Danish vocalist Karen Marie Ørsted. Tunes to date like “Pilgrim” and “Maiden” show Ørsted is already a wow when it comes to sophisticated, soulful pop.
