Radiohead - The Butcher

From the King of Limbs sessions, though it sounds like it could belong to the Hail to the Thief era. Subtle and tense nevertheless.

Grimes - Vanessa

Montreal's own Grimes sinks herself in the indie-pop starlight (star-dark rather) and pulls off an impressively cohesive and layered track.

Julian Lynch - Back

On his way to releasing his new album Terra, Julian Lynch continues with familiar earthy craft. Album closer "Back" struggles and shines through, baked with wholesome acoustic goodness.

mp3: Julian Lynch - Back

Speaking of baked, Lynch seems to be high on the title track...

Niva - The Boy From The Sun

Waiting for summer takes its toll.

Dodos - Companions

Delicate, bleak, and softly orchestrated, "Companions" is as touching as it is sincere.

Fleet Foxes - Grown Ocean

It's great to see a band evolve, maintaining what is already a delightful signature sound but also exploring   intricate progressive folk-rock elements. (The mp3 download is one of those that's of a quality too high for the player to handle, just right-click download instead)
