Fun Some Nights (Atlantic)

WE can’t seem to shift for this New York trio as We Are Young claims the best-selling single slot in the US and spreads further their charismatic, freewheeling popcraft – like musical ice cream.

Think Scissor Sisters and Queen with orchestral licks and a hip-hop garnish for a fidgety, genre-defying off piste feast.

The Enemy Streets In The Sky (Cooking Vinyl)

NAMED after Hyde Park Flats, here’s a third salvo from Coventry’s rock roughnecks.

After their so-so second, Streets ticks boxes that made the terraces fall for them first time around; anthemic fret-fuelled glee and a boisterous attitude that’ll have some doing an extra mile on the running machine.

Project X Soundtrack (Silva Screen)

PARENTS may want to dodge the film – a ‘found footage’ party movie of teenage antics – but they could enjoy this whopper of a soundtrack.

Shiny Toy Guns, Kid Crudi, Candy (with the awful Pitbull) and Pretty Girls tender exclusive songs alongside nuggets from D12 and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Diana Navarro Flamenco (Warner Jazz)

THE sun’s finally out so we reach for something Spanish.

Canned live in Seville, this spirited offering from an artist who usually mixes Latin, Arabic and Eastern covers songs by artists such as Pepe Pinto, Juanito Valderrama and La Nina de la Puebla for drama, passion and infectious heat.
