TAPE DECK SHUFFLE
The playlist of our favourite songs this week. 'Side A' features some latest cuts, while the classics make the 'B Side'.
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS-THE ADVENTURES OF RAIN DANCE MAGGIE: The new Frusciante less Chili Peppers return with a single with a Beatles-esque name.
BON IVER-PERTH: The first song of the new self-titled album and possibly the best song of the bands career.
DRAKE-I GET LONELY TOO: This TLC interpolating, smooth gem was just a sample of the great Drake R&B mixtape that never was.
DJ KHALED Feat DRAKE, RICK ROSS & LIL' WAYNE-I'M ON ONE: Drake has also turned part of one of his songs ('Trust Issues') into a great Khaled, posse cut.
SNOOP DOGG-EL LAY: The Doggfathers 'Doggumentary' is highlighted by this great tour around his city of Los Angeles.
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS-AEROPLANE: We miss dear John, but the last time the Red Hot Chili Peppers where without him they fared pretty good with Dave Navarro. Just listen to this.
COUNTING CROWS-ROUND HERE: With 'August & Everything After' almost here lets take in this opener from the Crows debut.
DJ JAZZY JEFF & THE FRESH PRINCE-SUMMERTIME: We're still in July however and this is THE Summer anthem...period.
MOBY-IF THINGS WHERE PERFECT: This aint half bad either as the producer gives us some Summer.
KANYE WEST Feat JAY-Z-NEVER LET ME DOWN: You better 'Watch The Throne' because Kanye and Jay's highly anticipated, long-awaited collabo album is almost here and it's tracks like this that guarantee it to be classic. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
