HALREADY hotly tipped as one to watch in 1999, Gay Dad's new single To Earth with Love shows a lot of promise for the band.

Something of a seventies sound reminiscent of The Egg or Air, it's a big sound, dramatic chorus - and a top twenty new arrival.

HTHE Noel Coward of the nineties Neil Hannon is back with yet another top tune from The Fin de Siecle album.

The Divine Comedy's new single is National Express - a tongue in cheek look at our coach service with its overpriced drinks and hostesses with expanding girths.

Not very complimentary but witty and catchy - whether it strikes a chord with the nation is another matter.

HNot the best track on their excellent album Deserter's Songs, the new single from Mercury Rev is nonetheless a corker.

Like The Divine Comedy, it's not the most radio-friendly of tunes, but the intriguingly titled Delta Sun Bottleneck Stomp is a great track and a fine introduction to last year's musical dark horses.

HHEATHER Nova's new single boosts her growing reputation as a fine singer/songwriter for the future.

Heart and Shoulder is a smouldering mix of passionate vocals backed by a reliable guitar riff which deserves a respectable chart position.

HHIP-HOP, techno, jazz and dub... they're all on Kakusei, the fifth release from Japanese-based DJ Krush.

A moody, ambient mix with subsonic beats it's straight from the heart of the thriving Tokyo scene. A trip-hop spectacular.
