Idles, Lyla Foy and Bodega are in the mix, as Steve goes through some of the tracks that have stood out for him this year. Plus there's a session and interview with Fontaines DC, the Dublin five-piece who are raucous and poetic in equal measure.

All week 6 Music Recommends is celebrating the music released in 2018 so far. In their regular recommend slots, Lammo, Lauren Laverne, Mary Anne Hobbs, Tom Ravenscroft pick their top tunes, and host exclusive live sessions from acts they've been supporting.
