Levels – Nick Jonas – Everybody sounds like Michael Jackson meets Usher meets Justin Timberlake, this is a very catchy piece of electronic pop without being much more than smart product – B

R.I.P To My Youth – The Neighborhood – Without actually remembering them really, I thought I like these guys. I don’t – C-

Break The Law – Mac Miller – Really? What did he do? Make a left in the wrong line? – C

May I Miss You – Family Of The Year – Folk indie rock, twee beyond belief and just plain annoying once it revs up  – C

We Don’t Stop – Kaskade – One of the more annoying electronic DJ dudes, this is unlistenable – D

Light (feat Little Dragon) – Odesza – I thought Little Dragon were excellent when I saw em earlier this year, but I could be wrong. This is dreamy but sleepy electronica, it soars like a wet piece of toast origamied into a jet plane, it isn’t unpleasant but it is such a wet – C+

Saving My Life – Gorgon City, Romas – I like Gorgon City more in theory than in practise, and I don’t like this tron rock in either concept or theory – D

Stuck With Me – Timeflies – Pretty singer songwriter track killed at the bridge – B-

Ride (Feat Icona Pop) – Lowell – This is catchy EDM as bubblegum move helped a lot by the always pleasant Icona Pop who give the song a terrific anthem lift off and while the whole fire in your heart is a little moldy they sell it well. Completely catchy, I hope it breaks pop big time – A-

You Belong To Me – Bryan Adams – Rockabilly rave up and a surprise pleasure – B+

Gibraltar – Beirut – Typical Beirut only catchier – B

Slumlord – Neon Indians – Are they for or against it? I fell asleep before the vocals came in – C

PPP _ Beach House – Or maybe not – C
