Savages “Silence Yourself” (Matador)

Ferocious debut album which takes the band’s live intensity and post-punk fever to a whole new level.

Justin Timberlake “The 20/20 Experience” (RCA)

Premier league pop, soul and r’n’b from the JT who will still be in the game in twenty years’ time

Basement Jaxx “Back 2 the Wild” (37 Adventures)

Where’s your head at? Heavyweight tribal pop action from the rejuvenated Jaxx.

Neneh Cherry & Afrika Baby Bam “Nina” (White)

Ms Buffalo Stance and Mr Jungle Brother hit the town with a superslinky, kick-ass groove courtesy of Four Tet

Kelis “Call On Me” (White)

Funky retro jam from Kelis which may well signal that a new album for Dave “TV On the Radio” Sitek’s Federal Prism is finally nigh.
