1) Gil Scott Heron - Home Is Where The Hatred Is - Legendary jazz poet/ proto rap dude muses about his real-life scag addiction and family breakdown, and you can hear the pain. Amazing.
2) Kings Of Leon - Sex On Fire - new single by Deep South sons of a preacher man. Their best yet.
3) The Beach Boys - Sail On, Sailor - One of their great "lost" classics from the 70s, with lyrics by Van Dyk Parks.
4) Glasvegas - Geraldine - Glasgae flavours of the month with a heart aching song about a social worker. Not something you hear every day.
5) CSS - Cannonball - Brazilian minx Lovefoxx sounds as lovely as ever on this cover of The Breeders grunge anthem.
6) Playground - Make It Happen - phat bass from the GTA4 Soundtrack.
7) The Futureheads - This Is Not The World - angular Clash-style punk from the North East band sadly best known for covering Kate Bush.
9) The Specials - Too Much Too Young - The Coventry ska legends re-formed this weekend for Bestival, and peformed this gem, amongst others.
10) Twisted Wheel - You Stole The Sun - much-touted Oldham trio with a riotous Fall-meets Libertines banger.
