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!

Listening to music can be quite a transformative experience. One minute you're sitting there, inert and unenergetic – next minute, after pressing play on a new track, you're dancing like a maniac. That's music! They can be more, um, transformative in an imaginative way, too. And so a couple of tracks we've served up for you today have you shrinking down sub-Borrowers size (Motu Proprio) and growing legs as tall as buildings (Lissvik). Of course, it's a great soundtrack to everyday experiences, too, away from the fantastical: feeling awkward in a cafe (Knx.), stressing about cooking a complicated meal for dinner (Sieta Catorce), and braving a busy commute to get home (Mischa Blanos).

What does your day sound like right now?


Sitting in a cafe simultaneously trying to make and avoid eye contact with people


Shrinking to the size of a sand grain and trying to navigate a new enormous world


Navigating the tube when it's super busy and you just want to be AT HOME


Making something complicated for dinner and totally sweating over it


Waking up; finding your legs are now 10 metres long; strolling around with 'em
