Welcome to our first new music playlist of 2014!
It's a quiet time of year for new releases, so you'll have to forgive the hit-or-miss nature of this post. There's still several tracks worth your ears, with plenty of metal to choose from and a fresh release from Pixies which revives their classic alt-rock style to a new generation.
Remember to vote for your favourite in the poll at the end, and remember to share your latest music tips in the comments. We always listen and you could be featured in the next playlist in front of the world's biggest guitar community.
