Frankie & The Heartstrings - Hunger
Another rerecording of a previous release, this time from Brighton quartet Mirrors. Their album has been recieving many plaudits, and this single is what Hurts would sound like if they were any good. Check out the video.
Album 'Perch Patchwork' was one of 2010's unsung heroes. Inventive, solid and unlike much else out there (the closest reference point might be TV On The Radio). New single 'Living Decorations' can't sum up the band in 3 minutes, so have a listen - then check out the album.

Alex Winston should be the pop sensation of the year. This debut EP shows why, positioning her as a more chart friendly Kate Bush. Slightly saccharine yet sophisticated and mature folk inflected pop. Includes last year's excellent US only 7" single 'Choice Notes'.

Intriguing, we await the results!
