Music 2015

5. Lazerhawk - Escape from Germany

Produced for a John Carpenter tribute tape, Lazerhawk crosses the master's burnt-out St Louis beats with Sylvester Levay's fizzy TV music. Charles Bronson's robot brain is telling the attack helicopter to fire hellfire missiles at the muggers.

4. Tame Impala - 'Cause I'm a Man

Slowly sink into a pool of luxurious R&B while some guy who wishes he was Prince sings about being a massive bellend.

3. Blur - Ong Ong

Football terrace knees-up - smiling, laughing, singing, arm in arm with some cunt you've never met before. I have no interest in soccer.

2. Rihanna X Kanye West X Paul McCartney - FourFive Seconds (WoodysProduce Remix)

WoodysProduce slathers sweeping Casio noise all over Rihanna's deliberately spare, acoustic single. Get in there lad. Fuck it up.

1. Gabrielle Aplin - Sweet Nothing

Played this over and over and over trying to work out why I loved it so much. You've gotta do that. You've got to be ruthless with yourself. Everything you like is shite anyway. Finally, I dredged up a feeling of Anna Karina plucked out of Pierrot le Fou to front the Foo Fighters. Not cool, fuzzy 1995 Foo Fighters either, we're talking 1999, Learn to Fly, dadrock era Dave Grohl and pals. Magic.
