When people discuss different drugs to combat a flu/cold, all sorts of pills/drinks/food pop up, but what's never discussed is music. The reason we mention this is that everyone seems to be ill this week, and it will only get worse as the cold creeps in over the coming months.

So, if your bones are currently rattling around inside your body, or an elephant is firmly placed upon your head, we suggest you give this self-titled album by Canadian band Orienteers a listen. It's the perfect blend of slow burning American indie with folky/epic tendencies, and will certainly do a better job than Berocca to clear your head.

The album is out now, and we suggest you buy it straight away.
