The Scotch Snap: 50 shady sounds, Rolling Stones and Divorce

Ever wanted to know what music inspired 50 Shades of Grey? Me neither, but too bad.

Fortunately we've also got great new stuff by Amanda Palmer and Divorce to see us through the trauma. And a Rolling Stones Greatest Hits album. How novel.

There's some musical maths, a half-glance at the new XX album (before looking away), the Killers sounding like Heart (note to The Kids, that's old person's music) and Frank Turner.

This week: Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City - Good Time (out now); The Killers - Runaway (out now, from the album Battle Born, out September 17); The XX - Chained (from the album Coexist, out now); Amanda Palmer - The Killing Type (from Theatre is Evil, out now); Divorce - Aids of Space (from Divorce, out September 17).
