1. HOT CHIP - DANCING IN THE DARK

2. SAVAGES - THE ANSWER

3. KANYE WEST - WHEN I SEE IT Does SWISH (formerly “So Help Me God”), the upcoming album by rap deity Kanye West exist? Whilst the album has been teased throughout 2015 with several singles scoring fashion shows and a fiery performance at the BRITs, there’s been nothing to indicate it is any closer. Questions about release dates have been continuously dodged for several months with an insistence on a “surprise release”. In any case, Kanye West suddenly decided for no reason to bless us with two new songs. A reworked version of “Say You Will” featuring vocals from Caroline Shaw, and “When I See It” a new take on the beat from The Weeknd song he co-produced “Tell Your Friends”. West’s vocals are slathered in autotune on this brief sub-two-minute track, making the song reminiscent of the robotic soul from “808s & Heartbreaks”. Kanye has left the interpretation and purpose of this track open. Is it a SWISH album outtake or scrapped guest verse? Whatever the intention hopefully this is only the beginning of this new SoundCloud account (confirmed as legitimate) to host more unreleased tracks from the Yeezy vaults.Patrick Cartlidge

4. CHAIRLIFT - CH-CHING

5. JUSTIN BIEBER - SORRY

6. ADELE - HELLO
That slow tender introduction. Those striking piano chords. The infamous voice. Hello Adele. Listen to “Hello” again and again - if you haven’t already - for a gorgeous melody, a chorus that’ll fill you up and a twist on the age old heartbreak song. If this track alone is anything to go by, the new album is bound to bring a tear to every eye.Dani Hall

7. DEMO TAPED - GAME ON


8. RAURY - FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE

9. LEON BRIDGES - LISA SAWYER
Leon Bridges’ debut album Coming Home was released earlier this year but he dresses and sings like he’s been picked straight out of the 1960s soul movement. His retro style and sound permeates every song on the album, but it was Lisa Sawyer that came to epitomise his style. Written about his mother and performed with pure melodic goodness akin to Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, Lisa Sawyer is a stand-out song on one of the most unique and promising albums to be released this year.

10. ONEOHTRIX POINT NEVER - MUTANT STANDARD
“Mutant Standard” is the latest track to be released from Oneohtrix Point Never’s upcoming album “Garden Of Delete”. At 8 minutes long, it is the longest track on the album and surely the centrepiece of the upcoming record. It starts with glitchy pulsating electronics which soon give way into a somewhat danceable crescendo culminating in an insane trance style break. This warped and industrial take on 90s styled dance music soon fades away however into an outro consisting of sliced vocals and dissonant keyboard stabs. It’s one of Oneohtrix’s strongest offerings yet and makes the wait for the 13th of November release date of Garden Of Delete all the more painful. PC

11. ONE DIRECTION - PERFECT

12. FETTY WAP FT. MONTY - 679

13. SLUTFACE - SHAVE MY HEAD

14. BOSS - I’M DOWN WITH THAT

15. WHITE SEA - NEVER A WOMAN

16. FLOATING POINTS - SILHOUETTES

17. HEALTH - LIFE

18. SUFJAN STEVENS - BLUE BUCKET OF GOLD (REMIX)
Carrie & Lowell was an album that was devastatingly beautiful from beginning to end, unique in Sufjan’s repertoire which so often intersperse gentle folk songs with orchestral musical experiments. Last week Sufjan released his own remix of the final song on Carrie & Lowell, Blue Bucket of Gold, which made me a little sceptical of the effect it would have on the song. Perhaps if the remix had been done by someone else it wouldn’t have worked, but Sufjan has managed to put a distinctive Age of Adz sound onto the song making it something that sounds totally fresh, but no less losing its emotion.KB

19. MILK & BONE - PRESSURE (CHATEAU MARMONT REMIX)


20. TAYLOR SWIFT - WILDEST DREAMS
The latest single from 1989, Wildest Dreams, is 3.40 minutes of floating snyth-driven heaven. ‘The girl in the dress’ has been a running theme throughout Swift’s career, with as an album, 1989, and to it’s extent its predecessor Red, being a dismantling of this, reversing the whole idea as first heard in ‘Dear John’. The girl in the dress is something more powerful now, and in this latest single, you will remember Swift as she wants you to, ‘standing in a nice dress, staring at the sunset’ with ‘red lips and rosy cheeks’. Wildest Dreams is Swift taking control of how her relationships will be remembered, with added soft synth deliciousness. Rachel Earnshaw
