The latest edition of 'The Selector' from the British Council features new tunes from Bloc Party, Barbarossa, and Goldfrapp, as well as live session tracks from British singer-songwriter Scrimshire. Bloc Party knocked it out of the park with their new single, "Ratchet".

Check that track by Baby Strange, a hot up-and-coming new UK band that will thrill fans of the Libertines, the Buzzcocks and the more punky side of UK rock. We are eager to hear a lot more from this young band.
