First the big pop one: Sneaky Sound System is a glossy, good-looking, well crafted, Daft Kylie-meets-2001 confection for a Aussie dance outfit creating infectious, very-big-over-there, soon-to-be-huge-over-here electro-pop.

Lots of cool LED, and some very cheeky costumes from stylist Hannah Edwards.

It's a delight. Emiliana takes us through The Art Of Living, and the worst thing you can say about it is this involves painting patterns on snail shells. It's almost certainly shot in Super 8mm and looks blooming marvellous, especially with James's graphics and effects work all over it. If Big Jumps becomes Emiliana's biggest record in the UK so far (it should be) this is going to be a big help.
