Dizzee Rascal ft Robbie Williams - 'Goin' Crazy'

Dizzee Rascal ft Robbie Williams - 'Goin' Crazy'

Dizzee Rascal ft Robbie Williams – 'Goin' Crazy' It's nothing new to point out that Dizzee Rascal has embraced pop in a way nobody could have predicted. His last album proper – 2009's 'Tongue N' Cheek' – produced massive smashes including...

These New Puritans - 'Fragment Two' He’s a dab hand when it comes to twisting melons, is our Jack Barnett. And at smashing them, too: for These New Puritans’ eerie 2010 LP ‘Hidden’ – a worthy recipient of NME’s Album Of The Year...

The Courteeners - 'Van Der Graaff'

The Courteeners - 'Van Der Graaff'

‘Van Der Graaff’ is so soaring, skyscrapering, cloud-surfing, moon-touching and cliff-leaping it makes me cry before I’m 10 seconds in. No snide payoffs about how this Doves-meets-Sigur Rós technique only has this effect in Manchester –...

Little Mix Feat. Missy Elliott - 'How Ya Doin'?'

Little Mix Feat. Missy Elliott - 'How Ya Doin'?'

The main problem with this, the latest song about mobile phones to enter the pop canon, is the rap from Missy Elliott. I can’t help but be reminded of Missy’s ‘Beep Me 911’ from 1998. It was far superior to ‘How Ya Doin’?’, which...

Primal Scream - 'It's Alright, It's OK'

Primal Scream - 'It's Alright, It's OK'

A lot of Primal Scream’s new album sounds like it’s been mainlined directly from 2000’s ‘XTRMNTR’. But not this one, which is from the ‘Rocks’ and ‘Country Girl’ school, with the Scream doing The Rolling Stones with all of their...

MGMT - 'Alien Days' Would you want to be a hippy? Sure, of course you would. You’d get to lie around naked in flower-strewn meadows gobbling up all the acid you can lay your hands on and simply get it on in a free-love fashion with all kinds...

Daft Punk - 'Get Lucky' We always knew it would happen: the robots have taken over – and they’ve been toying with us like a cat batting a half-dead mouse around the doormat. Just as Justin Bieber can send Twitter into meltdown by tweeting...

Calvin Harris feat. Ellie Goulding - 'I Need...

'I Need Your Love' has the squiggles, builds, drops and thumps of every Calvobanger ever – and topped with Ellie's lovely gushy vocal stuff, it's actually irresistible. But these days, making hits with Ellie Goulding or Florence Welch is no test...

Blue - 'Hurt Lovers'

Blue - 'Hurt Lovers'

Now that TV's 'The Big Reunion' has reminded us they were never as good as 5ive anyway, Blue are pushing their luck with a new single. Sadly, it's no 'One Love' for the EDM era. It's a crushingly bland man-ballad that Gary Barlow wouldn't even...
