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!

On a planet we don't recognise – how did we get here? why do our heads hurt so much? – we start our journey squiffy and disoriented (John Harrison), fall into a fully functioning malaise (Gent Mason), seek out and obtain drugs to numb us (Trupa Trupa), get lost in a rough alien neighbourhood that also happens to hide some beautiful slices of nature (Kid Indigo), as the various substances wear off you make a few friends and try to make your life on this far-flung world as a landscape gardener (fitz ambro$e). The end.


There are three moons in the sky at night (lasts 3.5 Earth nights) in the smoking area outside this extra-galactic club-kotch


Lazing around the house teetering on the edge of a precipice lined with confused sadness


Wandering around in a daze oblivious to your surroundings


Feeling outcast and indignant, but then without realising it you suddenly feel fine with the world


Feeling smart and savvy and refreshed and ready to fulfil the normal routine requirements of any given day in order to maintain a serene self-satisfied happiness
