Jamie Skey @jamie_skey rounds-up all this week's most significant singles, plus the new songs that have surfaced online in the last seven days that you shouldn't miss...
Pulp, who according to Jarvis Cocker won't be releasing "new Pulp
music" in 2013, have given an official release to former fan give-a-way track, After You. Originally sent to fans who attended the band's Sheffield homecoming gig, the five-minute prog-disco stomper produced LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, has been given an official download release today.
Mastermind of ring-tone trance Calvin Harris returns with Tinie Tempah and the single Drinking From The Bottle, which though seemingly hardly possible, manages to dial up his bubblegum brand of chiptune techno to yet more frenzied heights.
Her second single release in as many weeks, If You're Never Gonna Move, the title track of her latest EP, takes Jessie Ware's restrained and sensuous vocal delivery and allows it to glide over a chill and bass backdrop that's reminiscent of Swedish dreamtronica outfit Little Dragon.
Sinead O'Connor, who in 2011 took to the Irish Independent newspaper to find love after being sick of 'living like a nun', has a new single out, 4th and Vine, and by the sounds of it, she's succeeded, and couldn't be happier: "I'm gonna marry my love/ And we'll be happy for all time/ Yeah, he's the sweetest man you could find/So gentle and so kind." Real life might not be like that for her, by O'Connor sounds happy singing over a jaunty, buoyant, bhangra-like beat.
Looking to place their hometown back firmly on the musical map, Bristolian carriers of the dub torch Dr Meaker hit the grime-wobble sweet spot on Shak Out.
Dinosaur Pile Up appeared in 2010 seemingly kick starting a grunge revival in their debut album Growing Pains. Although retrogressive and one-dimensional, it was shameless, unadulterated fun, a fizzling mix of bittersweet Weezer melodies and Cobain-like solipsism. In advance of their follow up, Nature Nurture (out 13 May), they've 'released free download in the form of Lip Hook Kiss, which will gleefully reawaken the young, greasy, responsibility-less, cider-swilling mosher in you.
Heir to the modfather throne, Miles Kane has released a video to the lusty, stiletto-blade sharp Give Up, a new, glam-punk inspired direction for the Last Shadow Puppets co-frontman.
