WATCH: Jack Savoretti 'Written In Scars' for Mahogany

Here is a brilliant new Jack Savoretti track Written In Scars performed acoustically for The Mahogany Sessions.

WATCH: Arctic Monkeys - 'One For The Road'

tractors, girls, fireworks - just a normal music video, right?

Check out the video for the latest Arctic Monkeys single One For The Road taken off of their fifth consecutive number 1 album, AM. The track is one of my favourites from the album alongside Snap Out Of It and the wonderful R U Mine?. The band are currently on a UK tour and a few of my friends have gone to London to see them tonight.. not jealous, nope, not at all.

Listen to Sam Beeton's latest track The Yearling's Song - played on BBC's The Beat recently. The track is the latest release of Sam's unique Record Club, a subscription service through which fans get Sam's latest songs (on a physical CD) as and when they are written, recorded and produced. You can find out more about the Record Club here.

LISTEN: Franz Ferdinand - 'Right Action'

Loving this, Franz Ferdinand performing Right Action on Later... with Jools Holland. I wasn't aware of their new record (Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action) until I saw it in HMV and I wasn't sure whether to buy it, and worried that I might be disappointed because I really loved their older stuff when I was growing up. Fear not, however, the new record (which I've since bought on vinyl) is fantastic, one of my favourite new albums of this year in fact.

The tracks are catchy and showcase quite a range, a few start pretty slowly but the album retains the band's fun sound which you can't help but want to dance to. Alone, a lot of the tracks stand out as having single material. What's more, it's clearly a Franz Ferdinand record, you can hear clear elements of their older records in this one, which is great as it was the only worry I had about the album! The above video is one of the best tracks of the album, alongside my personal favourites Stand On The Horizon, Evil Eye and Bullet.
