Dan: Flo Rida and Akon revisit the plot of Weird Science for this video, while chillin' and playing a little Poker Stars these two inadvertently create themselves a supernaturally sexy hip-hop honey. Mr Rida is inspired by her beauty to sing the immortal lines "I imagine her topless / She might set off my rocket", which should give you an idea about the level of this song. Infantile, but not all bad.

The Hoosiers - Bumpy Ride
Bobble: I'm not sure The Hoosiers are actually that good, but there's something immensely likeable about them and their music. Bumpy Ride lives up to that description - it's probably not the greatest song ever, but it's plenty good enough to listen to and I can think of worse tracks to add to the iPod for these warmer days in the park we seem to be getting at the moment.

Katy B - Broken Record
Dan: There isn't much to say about this one, Katy B's vocals are nice enough, but seem an odd fit over the regulation garage backing track, and there is nothing much about the song to make you listen more than once.

Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull - On The Floor
Bobble: Quite apart from the fact that J-Lo seems to be back to looking AMAZING after a few years of so-so (by her standards), it's also good to hear a catchy pop track from her, that's well produced but doesn't seem to take itself too seriously. Another early contender for theme tune of the summer.

Danielson - Grow Up
Dan: Grow Up is a frantic 3 minutes of folk-pop from Danielson's recently released 8th studio album Best Of Gloucester County, on which Daniel Smith was joined by indie scene favourites Sufjan Stevens and Jens Lekman among others. The high octane (and high pitched) style of this single might be a bit of an acquired taste, but if you give it a chance you might just like it.
