The Horrors – Sea Within A Sea
Listen/Buy

A great song with a great video to match. This clearly Joy Division influenced track is from The Horrors’ second album, Primary Colours. Significantly less punk than their first album, but not quite as psychedelic as their second.

 
The Libertines – The Delaney
Listen/Buy

This is definitely one of my favourite Libertines tracks. One of those rare b-sides which deserved to be a single in its own right, The Delaney made a rare live appearance at The Libertines’ triumphant reunion gigs in 2010.

 
Manic Street Preachers – Revol
Listen/Buy

One of the Manics’ lesser known singles from The Holy Bible, Revol is a stroke of pure genius from Richey Edwards – the perfect combination of intelligent lyrics and guitar riffs to be expected of the Welsh wonders.

 
Anna Calvi – Suzanne And I (Live At Abbey Road)
Listen/Buy

One of those rare occasions when a song sounds better live than on the album. Anna Calvi has a beautiful, powerful voice, with lyrics to match. One of the few successful female musicians of our time.

 
The Raconteurs – Steady As She Goes
Listen/Buy

With great guitar riffs and drums to match, this debut single is yet another victory from Jack White. Catchy but not too repetitive, this song is a great opener to The Raconteurs’ first album.

 
The Kills – Future Starts Slow (Live at Radio 1)
Listen/Buy

The chemistry between Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince is hypnotising, and The Kills definitely work best in an intimate setting. They might not be the first male / female duo, but they’re definitely one of the best.
