So, the super-cool Solange last week presented the lead in a series of ‘Solange Selects’ mixtapes that she’s making for Fader. With one due every two months, the first edition includes FKA Twigs, Sean Nicholas Savage, Kwes and… Miley Cyrus. ‘Check it’ via Fader.

Next; a question. What do Disclosure, Nile Rodgers, Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes have in common? Well for one thing, a new, one-off song titled ‘Together’, which all four got together to write in an impromptu studio sesh. Not taken from anything in particular, it’s nonetheless worth giving it a quick listen on SoundCloud:

In even bigger news (well, not really), Animal Collective’s Panda Bear played a new, untitled track at the recent Pitchfork Festival Paris. And who knows, it might be off a new LP he hasn’t announced yet. See a fairly decent clip a fan filmed of it here:

Finally, alt-pop androgyne Planningtorock has given up a track from her forthcoming record ‘All Love’s Legal’, ahead of that being released on 10 Feb. It’s called ‘Human Drama’ and is all about the concept of ‘gender’ being a nonsense, aka the kind of feminism I’ll take over Lily Allen’s brand any day. Try it out here:
