Giorgio Moroder “From Here to Eternity” (Ariola)

Timeless electronic derring-do from the (unfortunately no longer) Electric Picnic-bound Moroder. My interview with the master from last weekend’s paper is here.

Hot Natured “Different Sides of the Sun” (ffrr)

Sultry house music with vocal assists from Roisin Murphy, Kenny Glasgow, Anabel Englund and The Egyptian Lover.

Delorean “Apar” (Matador)

Glorious Balearic jams and spirited grooves from the Basque collective, including “Destitute Time” below

John Newman “Cheating” (Universal)

Further proof that his forthcoming debut album will be one of the year’s big pop hitters.

Various “Red, Hot & Fela” (Knitting Factory)

Questlove, TuneYards, Angelique Kidjo, Alabama Shakes, TV on the Radio and many more tackle Fela Kuti classics in aid of the Red Hot AIDS charity.
