ScHoolboy Q “Banger” (Top Dawg)

A mighty tune to tide you over until the “Oxymoron” album lands in the coming weeks.

Laurel Halo “Ainnome” (Hyperdub)

Beautifully blurred tech and electronica lines from forthcoming album “Chance of Rain”

September Girls “Ships” (Haus Of Pins)

Beguiling noisy hooks galore – watch out for the Irish band’s debut album on Fortuna Pop in January

Arctic Monkeys “AM” (Domino)

Five albums in, Alex Turner and co exude a new kind of confidence and swagger.

Julio Bashmore “Peppermint” (Boardwalk)

Vocals from Jessie Ware to give Bashmore’s old-school house wobbler a touch of class.
