You know when you're sat on a bus, or a train, and it just sounds like a walk-in centre? Everyone's coughing and spluttering; an elongated mixture of fresher's flu and the fact that we can't afford to put the heating on until our toes are blue and we can see our breath. Hair is tangled, puffer coat has been dug out... and your earphones are blocking out the tragic tale of October with these wicked new tracks. How much better does that sound? Don't worry, we got you. Crocodiles – Not Even In Your Dreams Joyous and melodic, the latest release from the Crocodile duo wonderfully juxtaposes the lyrical content of struggles with anxiety and insomnia. The crackled glaze of sunny keys is in celebration of the besties’ sixth full-length, Dreamless (out 21st October), and a stint of UK dates. Hidden Charms – I Just Wanna Be Left Alone Instead of murmuring it under your breath when invited to social situations which you don’t want to attend, you can now blast this intoxicating number. Mixing a modern twist with grunge vocals and a neat line of funk on their rock n roll palette, head banging riffs really bleed their way into the subconscious. Check it on their new EP, ‘Harder From Here’ (out October 28th). Friend – The Evening Crowns The Day The Swiss musician is a little intense in his clockwork world. With an observant view, you’re caught in his rich voice and storytelling way with words. Enthralling soundscapes are eerily magnificent, an encapsulation of imagination, it’s an escape from the self. Coldcut – Only Heaven (feat. Roots Manuva & Dave Taylor) With a running tune of a ballerina jewellery box, the legendary duo are back for the first time since 2005 using their huge musical address book to bring Switch, Thundercat and Roots Manuva into the mix on 'Only Heaven'. Beautiful female vocals go hand in hand with Roots’ conscious flow. Soul runs effortlessly, proving that Coldcut have worked their magic once more. Jerry Williams – Let’s Just Forget It
