Josef Salvat “Hustler” (White)

The Aussie Bryan Ferry hits all the right notes.

London Grammar “Hey Now” (White)

Your new favourite band if you’re a fan of slow-mo atmospheric wonders

Blue Hawaii “Try to Be” (Arbutus)

Seductive, shimmering, chilled post-beach pop from the Canadian duo.


Chloe Howl “Rumour” (Sony)

A bold, brazen pop belter from the teen star in the making

The Orwells “In My Bed” (Autumn Tone)

Ramshackle, unkempt, shaggy garage-rock shalalala gold from the Chicago wizards.
