Welcome to the Music Weekly podcast – our last for the time being as we shamble off in to the monsoon that promises to be a British summer. We'll be bringing you other bits and pieces over the break, but Music Weekly will return in September.
Rebecca Nicholson joins us this week, and has brought in some Cat Power for Singles Club. We'll also be dissecting tracks from LoLa Monroe and Frank Ocean (complete with "air guitar" solo).
We're thrilled to see the Invisible's David Okumu in good spirits after a terrible accident in Lagos. Kieran spoke to him and Tom Herbert about the band's extraordinary emotional rollercoaster ride leading up their new CD, Rispah. You can stream the whole album here and hear more on the New Music blog.
West coast duo Peaking Lights have a new album out by the name of Lucifer. This may sound a bit sinister, but band-members Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis describe it as "a record about playfulness, unconditional love, rhythms and pulses, creation and vibration". This proved too much for Emma Warren to resist, so she went to meet them.
In other news, Alexis does a disturbing impression of Dizzee Rascal.
Join us again in September, but stay tuned to guardian.co.uk/music for festival reports and more over the summer.
