There's much to love about this, although I'm particularly partial to the little string arps that decorate the verses.

"Take Care" - The Magic Gang
Staccato piano jabs, nice harmonies and once the distorted bass kicks in at the 2 min mark you can practically hear Ben Folds' lawyer spinning in his shallow, unmarked grave.
"From The Love That We Made" - EMA
First time I've heard anything by EMA ... this commences with proto-NIN dirge synths and scorned lyrics and then suddenly, marvellously comes together with an acidic acoustical flourish. Worth your time.
"The Memory Junkie" - Club Kuru
This one is coming direct and unashamedly from the 1977 London Reverb And Flange Championships. Beautiful.
"Milky Milk" - Dama Scout
I adore this - an aroma of Deerhoof early on and then it falls into that sort of big melodic-yet-melancholic turnaround thing that Autolux used to be so good at.
"City Looks Pretty" - Courtney Barnett
Apologies for the dead air, I appear to have borked something in the innards of the site. We're back and commencing broadcast with the wonderful Courtney Barnett who continues to emit a stream of fantastic tunes from her forthcoming record.
"Like a Fish" - Matt Maltese
Not the first time Mr. Maltese has graced these pages, definitely won't be the last. Tracks from his forthcoming record keep escaping and not a duff one yet.
"All Wordz Are Made Up" - The Voidz
There is a genuinely classic pop song being mangled here.
