Wherever you are in the world: good morning, good afternoon, good evening, good night. It is time for your 5 a day.

One day, the UK government said, "You should eat 5 portions of fruit or veg[etables] per day." Turns out you should probably eat more than that. But we think it's pretty catchy, so we've hijacked it. Here we'll list FIVE pieces of music per DAY that we think you should check out. As the Italians say, we'll be catching two pigeons with one bean (prendere due piccioni con una fava): we help spread the word about MORE artists, plus we're giving YOU more music to listen to. It's all a joy for us, really!

There are probably loads of people starting out in the music world every day, setting up a SoundCloud page, uploading tracks, maybe sending a few emails to blogs in the hope that somebody will listen. On one hand, it's a little sad: the market is hugely saturated, so many people already make music, more than half a century of popular music that's existed prior to your existence weighs down on your brain. On the other hand, it's amazing. People are creative. As many tracks can be created as there are different, individual people with even slightly different tastes and opinions. Everyone is a variation on a theme anyway, we're all humans, so let's celebrate that with music – most of which is also a variation on a theme. Some of it is more unique than others, but that's ok. It doesn't matter. If it sounds good… who cares that much, really?


It's 2AM, you're running on a treadmill at an empty 24-hour gym


A confusing dream (or was it a nightmare?) follows you around all day


Walking around the ancient Roman city of Dougga in northern Tunisia


Swanky restaurant way above your price range (you plan to dine and dash)


On holiday with your family, the sun is shining, but still you're just at the bottom of the pool seeing how long you can hold your breath
