You’re probably wondering what Jon been up to, and here’s something new for you to sink your teeth into. Called ‘Rhythm Doesn’t Make You A Dancer’, it’s a taster to the album he just finished recording (yet to be titled) and being given away as a celebration that his work on the new recording is complete. I like to think it’s a good-natured knock to Snap!’s 1992 hit ‘Rhythm is a Dancer’. Seriously. Watch the video and be prepared to laugh. (Unless of course you take line dancing seriously.)

Metronomy‘s single released on Monday, ‘She Wants’, is an intriguing taster to their highly anticipated next album ‘The English Riviera’. Some of the words sound robotic, but in this case, it’s strangely intoxicating. And the band is offering up the single as a free download in exchange for your email address. Really, you need to hear this track. And visually, the promo video is surreal and brilliant, down to “a glass of water by her side”. Check out both below.

I heard this track from Holy Ghost!, ‘Do It Again’, on Nemone’s show on 6music on Wednesday morning and loved it, so I was very pleased to see it’s being offered as a stream and free download over on Rcrd Lbl. What a perfect way to get ready for the weekend.

The Dig, who have previously opened for Editors and the Joy Formidable in America last year, are offering up the track below for free download. Called ‘For All Your Sins’, it’s a stellar track from their debut album released last year, ‘Electric Toys’. It shows the softer side of this indie rock band from Brooklyn. The song also featured on this week’s episode of ‘Gossip Girl’ – nice song placement!
