Futuretense, hypnotic, slow-burning hiptronica from Stewart Bird

Euphoric dancefloor majesty as Ms Del Rey goes for a pirouette under the mirrorball

TV On the Radio “Mercy” (Federal Prism)

Infectiously raw return to the release schedules for the Brooklyn band

Ten stunning top-drawer, switched-on, electronic thumpers from the Electric Picnic-bound Londoners, including newbie “Turn It Up” (below)
