David Byrne & St Vincent “Love This Giant” (4AD)

The unquestionable highlight of the Electric Picnic was watching this pair and their brassy band bringing the house down on Sunday night.

Janelle Monae “The Electric Lady” (Wondaland/Bad Boy)

She’s electric. Ms Monae returns to the fray and brings the extra-terrestrial funk with her. “Dance Apocalyptic” from the album follows.

Krystal Klear “Addiction” (Rinse)

Dubliner Declan Lennon joins forces with Jenna G to roll out some premier league disco pop

Larry Gus “Years Not Living” (DFA)

Daring, adventurous psych pop from the Greek producerl, inspired by his homeland’s financial woes. “The Night Patrols” from the album below

Tenor Saw “Ring the Alarm” (Techniques)

Old-school dancehall delight. Rewind, selectah!
