Now here's a strange thing. This is a track titled 'You Don't Know Me' featuring Olga Bell but the new Stranger Forms EP from Son Lux has it down as 'You Don't Own Me' featuring Hanna Benn. I'm confused but the tune is the absolute business whatever and whoever features on it!

It doesn't get more art-house than this, 80s New Wave meets spoken word. ydia Tomkiw at her very best.

Gothenburg will forever be associated with dream pop as far as I'm concerned but here's a strictly guitar rock band from that city ready to question my prejudices. It's a lovely 90s-inspired, languid summery track with a great groove to it.
Icelandic minimalist-folk duo and sisters, Jófríður and Ásthildur Ákadóttir haven't recorded together for the last 3 years but there's a new album, Sundur, due and this is the first track from it. I'm a complete sucker for this kind of folk music. I could listen to it all day and never tire.

I was very excited earlier to read that a new Rory Hoy collaboration with my hometown of Brighton rockers Kitten and the Hip is in the offing but sadly I can't find any links yet so let's make do with this super-smash from 2013. Fuck yeah!
The song has been around for a few years but it's now on the new Low Anthem album, the first in something like 5 years. It's been too long, chaps! Let's not leave it so long next time, eh?
Some music remains timeless.
