It's a strange world. It winds down an often relentlessly up-tempo, funk-filled album with a real sense of poignancy - giving the album a whole new dimension.
The xx - 'Reconsider' Coexist : From their second album, 's Coexist, comes this characteristically minimalist, haunting gem. The same can be said of almost any song from The xx, but 'Reconsider' is profoundly cinematic, and proves definitively that someone needs to ask this and to score a film.
The Japanese Version
Florence The Machine - 'Bird Song' Lungs : Slightly lighter on the orchestral heft that Welch is known for, but plenty heavy on the profoundly twisted and imaginative lyrics: "I picked up the bird and above the din I said, 'That's the last song you'll ever sing'. Held him down, broke his neck, taught him a lesson he wouldn't forget.
Beyonce - 'Dreaming' 4 : It's something of a tautology to ever bother saying that Beyonce's voice sounds amazing, but few demonstrate its quality to quite the extent of 'Dreaming', from the Japanese release of 4. It's a syncopated delight with a baffling blend of humour and pathos. The Libs at their best, and we're keeping our fingers crossed that it makes an appearance on their summer tour.
Lorde - 'Bravado' Pure Heroine : She's still only 18, but Lorde's voice has matured significantly over the past few years, as is showcased perfectly on her Hunger Games contribution 'Yellow Flicker Beat'. On 'Bravado', she sounds heartbreakingly young, compounded by lyrics such as, "I was frightened of every little thing that I thought was out to get me down, to trip me up, and laugh at me.

In the very best way. Vincent's phrasing, a party record you could play at a funeral.
