American Country Love Song – Jake Owen – Anthem attempt which falls flat on its lack of an original thought in its entire body of song – D+

You’re Not There – Lukas Graham – The “7 Years” guys, who have ruled the UK single charts for a month, try again and it isn’t the immense annoyance their hit is… so far  – C+

Do It, Try It – M83 – The French DJs go for a mainstream hit, with a piano heavy opener exploding into sound and vision and not much more – C+
