2012’s the year of emotive indie R&B – maybe spurred by the success of the Weeknd and Frank Ocean, plenty of songwriters are delivering late-night, brooding, bluesy electronic cuts that are melting our hearts. Here’s a new cut from Chad Valley, aka Jonquil’s Hugo Manuel, whose “Fall 4 U” comes beamed from the same kind of ’80s-y, Balearic Ibiza maximalism the Rapture channelled on In the Grace of Your Love, and features Glasser mastermind Cameron Mesirow - she trades off moody, lovestruck vocals with Manuel over a woozy, slow-burning beat of ethereal synths and clattering drum machine. Young Hunger is Chad Valley’s debut record; it also features vocal help from the likes of Twin Shadow and El Perro Del Mar; it drops October 30.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
