Shit Robot “We Got A Love” (DFA)

Marcus Lambkin’s second album is chockablock with star turns and fantastic twisted, wonky funk.

Miguel “Simplethings” (RCA)

Deep, seductive r’n’b showstealer from the “Girls” soundtrack

Linda Perhacs “The Soul Of All Natural Things” (Asthmatic Kitty)

First album in 44 years from the “Parallelograms” folkie is an ode to new school Los Angeles’ hippie lore.

Kelis “Rumble” (Ninja Tune)

Raw, visceral r’n’b from the “Milkshake” singer with production dig-outs from David “TV on the Radio” Sitek

Karen O & Ezra Koenig “The Moon Song” (Water Tower)

Dreamy duet from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Vampire Weekend frontfolk of the former’s song from Spike Jonze’s ace film Her.
