In the week that we learned that Facebook is worth an estimated $100bn suddenly felt very poor indeed, these are the songs we have been listening to.
Azealia Banks - Jumanji
With 'Jumanji' Azealia reminds us that away from the management changes and Twitter wars she is also a pretty great rapper. Backed by a suitably huge beat courtesy of Hudson Mohawke, Banks runs the track with the same swagger and style that got us all so excited just a few months ago. Now is the time for her to pull focus back on to the music and push things forward.
Gold Panda - Mountain
Gold Panda launched his new record label Notown with the release of his first new music since his stunning debut album. 'Mountain' is a typically fresh and inventive slice of brilliance from one of the best producers around.
Health - Tears
Health returned this week with the first taste of their upcoming Max Payne 3 video game soundtrack. Proof, if ever it was needed, that gaming has come a long, long way from the bleeps and blips of Tetris - this sounds terrifying.
Yeasayer - Henrietta
You can see what Yeasayer were thinking in sending a CD to each member of their fanclub featuring this new song. This being 2012 however, the song ended up online within hours and we got our first glimpse of what the follow up to 2009's 'Odd Blood' is set to sound like. In a word? Funky.
Summer Camp - Life
Summer Camp's charming pop romance is given a Moroder style disco makeover in this first song from the duos forthcoming EP. Standing beneath the disco ball suits Elizabeth and Jeremy, sparkling as they do over one of their best songs to date.
Fun feat. Hayley Williams - Somebody That I Used To Know
Someone get Hayley Williams a medal. Not only did she have to endure a chat with Fearne Cotton on Radio 1 this week, she did it at 3am in LA with no music of her own to promote. The Paramore frontwoman helped out her pals in Fun. as they took part in the Live Lounge, sending her vocals on this Gotye cover across the Atlantic to the band in London.
Julio Bashmore - Au Seve
Radio 1 DJ, producer extraordinaire and now record label boss - Julio Bashmore is certainly a busy man. He's makes multi-tasking sound easy though as this huge new tunes goes to prove.
Blawan - Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage
With new music coming this week from Julio Bashmore (see above) as well as Pariah, Fantastic Mr Fox and this absolute monster from Blawan we think the gods are smiling on the pasty faced bedroom producers of the world.
Childish Gambino feat. Scoolboy Q - Unnecessary
Childish Gambino went on an epic Twitter rant this week, addressing his haters and outlining why he does what he does. Much more interesting, however, was this track with the superlative Schoolboy Q released earlier in the week. Heads up Donald, let the music do the talking.
Donna Summer - Love To You Love You Baby
This week we lost a legend, RIP.
