A loungesmooch masterclass from the Kiwi psych/rock outfit. An enormous organ deployment here, but Donald Leslie would be so proud.

"IUD" - Okay Kaya
It's just another timely love song, well, sort of, but I adore the simplicity of this "smut pop" tune.
"Number One (In New York)" - Titus Andronicus
A really slow starter but turns into a spiralling, beardy, quasi-drunken lament that puts me in mind of The Pogues.
What? There are many good tunes. This is a small selection of new-ish ones that have tickled me in some way. My tastes are eclectic, although lo-fi synth noises, weird time signatures, protracted guitar/sax solos and unexpected key/genre changes will often score high marks with the judges. Which is me. Descriptions may be short and poorly spelled terse. I don't want to write about songs - I want you to listen to them. This isn't the f**king NME.
"Watch You, Watch Me" - Suuns
This has completely made my morning... a magnificently saturated synth'n'vocoder deployment with some inspired changes.
