John Steel Singers “Happy Before” (Full Time Hobby)

Sunnyside up pop with a giddy glint in the eye from the Brisbane five-piece

Lana Del Rey “Ultraviolence” (Polydor)

Provocative pop with rasping reverb and blues-fused ennui

Helen Hollins Singers “Consolation” (Soundcloud)

Inspired Nicolas Jaar rerub of the 1980s’ soul-gospel group

Grimes “Go” 94AD)

Stadium-sized bleeps and bass from Grimes on a jam originally intended for Rihanna. Ri-Ri’s loss, tbh.

Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock “It Takes Two” (Profile)

The sound of the summer block parties busting out all over the city in our vivid imagination.
