In this week's new releases, or at least the ones that have popped up on Spotify:

  • Phoebe Ryan continues in her quest to become the planet's greatest popstar. [NB: This was our pick of the week until Trainor blessed the world with 'No'.]
  • Years & Years release a single that isn't 'Gold', a decision for which we will never forgive the 'Gold' non-hitmakers.
  • Excellent news: Vérité continues to be extremely good.
  • Selena Gomez chucks some remixes online — the Betablock3r one is the best of the lot.
  • The Knocks' debut album is finally released!
  • There's a new Kitten EP which is excellent.
  • Feat Charli XCX pops up with Miike Snow (as ever these days it's not exactly 'Boom Clap').
  • (There's a new Kendrick Lamar semi-album too but we haven't got our heads around that yet.)

We didn't include the new single from 'The Boxer Rebellion', apols.
