CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG: Terrible Angels.Unsettling scratchy off-beat pounding synth that’ll immediately make you think of the likes of Goldfrapp.
SPECTRALS: Get A Grip.Spectrals (aka Louis Jones) grew up listening to The Style Council, Elvis Costello and even The Ronettes which may just be why this soul-washed indie pop has such a nostalgic resonance.
BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB: Lights Out Words Gone.Their critically acclaimed third album A Different Kind Of Fix hit the album charts at number six and this floating ethereal pop is undoubtedly one of the standout tracks. As organically chilled out as it gets. Rightly hailed as the thinking man’s indie band.
ANITA SKORGAN: Is It True.A string-blessed lullaby that’ll certainly send you drifting off to some semi-slumber land. The Norwegian made huge waves when this was first aired on Radio 2. Now 52, she sang at the Eurovision Song Contest five times and won it for Norway with a song called Casanova in 1977. Don’t hold that against her.
