10 tracks that put a spring in my step this month:-

'Absolute Zero' - Faith No More
Everyone needs a bit of 'riffage' once in awhile and this definitely fit the bill. I was listening to this whilst out running and as well as an angry face, I also achieved a personal best. Faith No More, I raise the goblet of rawk to you!

'Used to be a Cop' - Drive By Truckers
Great atmospheric Alt-Country ballad that paints a bleak picture of a cop on the edge.

'Two Against One' feat Jack White - Danger Mouse and Daniel Luppi
Producer Danger Mouse comes up trumps again, collaborating with Italian film composer Daniel Lippi and Jack White to good melodic effect.

'Starting Over' - Jehst

Jehst is one of my favourite UK hip hop artist and if this comeback single (after 6 years) is anything to go by then his album should be one to look foward to.

'Crave You' feat Giselle - Flight Facilities
Girl finds a guy's 'treat'em mean, keep'em keen' technique a tad frustrating. A snappy beat and soothing synths, keeps this dance track bubbling along very nicely indeed.

'Painted Eyes' - Hercules and Love Affair
A great slice of 'camp' NY disco!

'One Less Day' Feat G-Shaft - DaM Funk
80's style sleaze funk. Perhaps what Alexander O'Neal would have sounded like if he was slightly naughtier.

'Ways to an End' - Mirrors
Another 80's influenced track. Synth-pop of an OMDesque variety, which is fine with me!

'DJama' - Donso
Went to see Seun Kuti last month and these guys were supporting, I immediately bought the CD. A French/Malian collaboration fusing electronica and traditional African rhythms.

'Brown Skin Lady' - Black Star
Saw the De La Soul, Black Star, Rakim concert this month and I forgot how good these guys are. This is a great soulful Hip-Hop track from arguably two of the best MC's in the game.
