7 TUNES; This week's essential download tracks.

KATIE MELUA The Flood This hypnotic track grows on you. Katie wrote it with Guy Chambers and Lauren Christy and it's an interesting mix of styles as a slow steady trance builds into a fast dance track.

THE FEATURES The Temporary Blues This is a catchy rock anthem from The Features' album Some Kind Of Salvation. There's lots of guitars and a swirling build-up that eventually lets loose on the vocals. Stomping.

ELLIE GOULDING Guns & Horses This is a really dreamy track that's upbeat and wistful and suits the lovely vocals of Ellie. It feels like a magical wonderland and the video is bizarre but worth checking out, too.

WILD PALMS Deep Dive There's an Eighties retro sound to this three-piece that feels like a dark room full of student shoe-gazers. It has a heavy bassline and wailing vocals in a Vampire weekend style. Worth checking out.

OWL CITY Umbrella Beach More dreamy and electronic tinkering from Owl City, that's more upbeat and pacey than his huge hit Fireflies earlier this year. It feels euphoric and carefree.

GET FAR FT. H-BOOGIE The Radio H-Boogie, AKA Haidara Swaray, is a star in the making. The Hammersmith girl has a sweet, arresting voice and here she's singing over a dance-fuelled track from Mario Fargetta, AKA DJ Get Far.

B.O.B. Nothing On You The latest superstar-to-be from across the Pond is destined for major success with this hit in the making. It's an upbeat urban number which is already blasting from every radio station.
