My personal favourite from the Melburnian (Melburnite?) synth-dance-punk-pop-whatever's debut album which is released this very day. (linkage after the jump)
They're at Village Underground on May 30th.

"Curse Of The Contemporary" - LUMP
Laura Marling and Tuung's Mike Lindsay are doing the supergroup project thing. Happily, this is wonderful in sort of glitched PJ Harvey way and the accompanying video is pleasingly fluffy.
"Millennial Trash Blues" - Jo Passed
What a marvellous noisy curio this is. Kindly deploy at maximum volume.
"Confirmation" - Westerman
Soothing, synthy pop ballad that completely refuses to go where you think it will.
"Gucci Gucci" - The Homesick
There is a special place in my heart and a circle of Hell* specifically reserved for people who write pop tunes in 7/4. Trippy Dutch quasi-psychadelic goodness.
"Ouverture." - The Limiñanas
Can it still be krautrock if it's French?
"PYNK (feat. Grimes)" - Janelle Monáe
You know what? A world without Prince is (just about) bearable when it contains Janelle Monáe, and unlike the recent "Make Me Feel" this is pure scratchy catchy electropop goodness courtesy of Grimes.
"Polygraph Eyes" - YUNGBLUD
Not everyone can write a catchy pop song about shitty male behaviour.
