Charli XCX (feat Abra)
Asylum Records

How best to bat away questions like, Hey Charli, where’s your new album? With a 10-track mixtape of slouchy bangers like this one, of course.

Mic Lowry
Whiskey Kisses,

Production duo Laconic lend the Liverpudlians’ R&B a beat-heavy gloss on a single perfect for sticky floors and snogging at the Slug And Lettuce.

Contact Stephanie Duncan-Bosu

Gold Connections
Fat Possum

Virgina indie kid Will Marsh shares something warm, spindly and meditative from his upcoming self-titled EP, due March 31.

Contact Alex Cull

Virgin EMI

Contact Louise Mayne

Fleet Foxes
Third Of May/?daigahara,

They’ve been gone for six years, but Fleet Foxes are still sat round the same campfire in hessian cloaks, making poetic observations about stuff.

Contact Matthew Rankin

Love Is Love,

Pissed off by Donald Trump, the folky New Yorkers turn to funky riffing and sun-baked positivity. From the album of the same name out April 21.

Contact Will Lawrence

Scared Of The Dark,
Steps Music

Look, it’s Steps, back with a pop song that recalls an easier time: pure, simple and mercifully free of tropical house beats or a verse from Sean Paul.
