Best album of 2011 so far? Vessels' 'Helioscope' for me - the Leeds gitchy post rockers are set to release their sophomore soon and it's another nine tracks of cacophonous joy. Opener 'Monoform' is a Three Trapped Tigersy exercise in beserk rhythms and jackhammer guitars while second track (and our free MP3) 'The Trap' is the sound of two drum kits being through down a fire escape onto an army of Mogwai fans. It continues in a similar vein.

The band have been remixed by similarly-minded Scots Errors in the past (check out their version of 'An Idle Brain And The Devil's Workshop') but this time round they got the re-edit from none other than Rolo Tomassi. Wait til that one's five minutes in, then it really kicks off...

Darwin Deez has only gone and made a mixtape composed of Willy Wonka samples, the crazy kid that he is. Get it on his site for the price of some Facebook promotion.
