Charli XCX
Number 1 Angel / Pop 2

Not just one but two 2017 ‘mixtapes’ from pop artist Charli XCX. Number 1 Angel is co-produced by SOPHIE and features collaborations from MØ, RAYE and Uffie. Pop 2 is its follow-up, with Tove Lo, ALMA, Carly Rae Jepsen, Pabllo Vittar and Jay Park on its roster. On red and tran...view item »

Connan Mockasin
Jassbusters

God help us all, he's back. Popular hedonist Conan Mockasin has probably been sleeping in his pillow fort for the last couple of years but he returns with more ineffable R&B tinged indie rock. Jassbusters is his third record and is apparently the prologue to a five-part film he's making, esoteric...view item »

Still Corners
Slow Air

Fourth album from Americanophile Brits Still Corners. Slow Air represents the band exploring the vastness of America, a vastness that finds itself on this album's songs. The instrumentation is intense and sparse, built from plucked guitars, minimal drums and synths, and of course Tessa Murray...view item »

Stereolab
Switched On Volumes 1-3

Stereolab fans this is your CD treasure trove. You get the singles and rarities compilations Switched On, Refried Ectoplasm [Switched On Volume 2], and Aluminum Tunes [Switched On Volume 3] all compiled onto a 4CD anthology on reverse board clam shell box with disks in individual card wallets and insert. An absolute mountain of ...view item »

The Beths
Future Me Hates Me

Carpark Records (Cloud Nothings, Toro Y Moi) present some fuzzy niceness from Kiwi quartet The Beths. Future Me Hates Me is a peppy synthesis of OG twee-grungers like The Lemonheads with the shy coyness found in the more recent fare of Yuck...view item »

Dizzy
Baby Teeth

Cutesy Canadian four-piece Dizzy release their cutesily-entitled debut LP via Communion. Baby Teeth (cute) is full of dream-pop niceness, all gently-picked guitar and glottal-stopped vocals and synth playing straight from the book of Springsteen. Sometimes Dizzy are sad, sometimes they&...view item »

Anna Meredith
Anno

Certainly doing pretty nicely amongst the chattering arts set, thank you very much, Anna Meredith won Scottish Album of the Year award for her debut 'Varmints' and has been artist in residence and sat on panels and all that sort of stuff. Now she releases a new collaboration with the Scottish Ensemble where she ...view item »

OMD
History of Modern

This was OMD's 2010 album and at the time it was their first since 1996. It was described by ever confident leader Andy McCluskey as being their best since Architecture and Morality; he was, of course, talking utter piffle. This isn't better than Dazzle Ships by any stretch but it was goo...view item »

Sparks
Exotic Creatures Of The Deep

The Sparks success is measured through their cult following and critical acclaim rather than commercial chart success. Their 2008 album Exotic Creatures Of The Deep is their most commercially successful album, however, although it still never broke into the Top 50. Now it is available on vinyl for...view item »

Tim Burgess
As I Was Now

Who would you recruit if you were putting a band together? Me I'd go for Phil Collins (drums), Nick Beggs (bass), Robert Fripp (guitar), Viv Savage (keys) and Elton John (triangle). Tim Burgess went for some lesser names because these were the names he'd already recruited for his band to play on his latest album...view item »

The Just Joans
Has Anybody Seen My Boy?

Two new songs from glum sibling centric Glaswegian indie rockers. The Just Joans, formed in 2005, are built around the tempestuous relationship only siblings can have, here provided by Katie and David Pope. Has Anybody Seen My Boy shows them capitalising off the energy of 2017's You M...view item »

Animal Collective
Tangerine Reef

2018 is the International Year of the Reef, a project which aims to bring attention to the beauty of our friends beneath the waves as well as the massive amount of harm humanity has caused them. To commemorate it Animal Collective will produce their second audiovisual album Tangerine Reef (the fir...view item »

Westerman
Edison

The comparisons to Arthur Russell have flown freely for Westerman since his emergence a couple of years back. Russell certainly lurks in the corners of Westerman’s new single ‘Edison’ - their singing voices in particular are uncannily similar - though the song is very much drawing from the ...view item »

Westerman
Confirmation

Hotly-tipped London auteur Westerman returns to the fledgling Blue Flowers imprint with new single ‘Confirmation’. 2017’s Call And Response EP brought free-flowing comparisons to Nick Drake and Arthur Russell, and those influences remain strong on this...view item »

Mikey Collins
Hoick

Mikey Collins was the drummer in indie-pop heroes ‘Allo Darlin’. Hoick is his debut solo album and but for a little help from ‘Allo Darlin’ guitarist, Paul Rains and Tigercats’ Laura Kovic he plays all the instruments himself. For this album musical...view item »

The Clientele
Suburban Light

Merge reissue The Clientele’s debut LP on 180g LP complete with a bonus discs worth of covers, b-sides and demos. I’m new to the album but it’s a Clinton favourite and on first spin I really enjoyed it. Sits somewhere between The Velvet Underground stuck in ‘Candy Says’...view item »

Tirzah
Devotion

Tirzah has been reaching a particular audience with her contemporary, streetwise voice since her debut EP for the Greco-Roman label in 2013. Now her soulful style reaches a wider audience on her debut LP for big boys Domino records. Co-created and written with Mica Levi who also produced, 'D...view item »

Los Campesinos
Hold On Now Youngster

Ant here wondering where on earth Los Campesinos get their energy from. They sound like they've been necking kegs of Red Bull. Its all jolly uplifting playful energetic bouncy ecstatic indie pop that reminds me of The Go Team. Mingus is bigging this up. The energy is clearly rubbing off on him. What's happening... Everyone is smiling and that... sh...view item »

Haiku Salut
Etch and Etch Deep

Don’t let the name fool you; Haiku Salut are neither French nor Japanese. Instead, they hail from Derbyshire. The tracks they make on Etch and Etch Deep combine a big stack of sounds grabbed from sources electronic and acoustic, with results that are both strange and highly tuneful. On How Does It Feel To Be Loved...view item »

Goosebumps – 25 Years Of Marina Records

Who knew it was 25 years since Marina Records started releasing indie pop. Well it is. And to celebrate they've unleashed this 3LP or 2CD set of all their most important bits so you can celebrate in style. Contains tracks from the past present and future such as Shack, the Pale Fountains, the Pearlfisher...view item »

Kate Nash
Yesterday Was Forever

Another great moment in Norman Records storied history as we present to you a re-issue of Kate Nash's fourth album 'Yesterday Was Forever'. She'd already hit paydirt with 'Made of Bricks' and here set about writing confessionals about her new found fame referencing unfashionable '90s favourites such as Meredith Brooks...view item »

Zero 7
Simple Things

Here we have a reissue of the first Zero 7 album, first put out into the world way back in 2001. Still sounds smoothy smooth, an hour’s worth of chilled, romantically inclined music that sends the basslines out to the front of the mix, a warm bed of synths and organs nestled beneath it all. The reissue stretches to two LPs...view item »

Talk Talk
The Colour Of Spring

The Colour of Spring was the transition album between the old Talk Talk (sort of like a literate Duran Duran) and the new Talk Talk (jazz inflected post rock innovators). The Colour of Spring had elements of both containing chart-ready hits ('Life Is What You Make It', 'Living In Another World'...view item »

Prince
Nothing Compares 2 U

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone. Prevent the dog from barking with ... the original record of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ by Prince. The first of what will likely be many everyday masterpieces to emerge from the vaults of the late legend, the track has been remastered from the original tapes and sent off into t...view item »

XTC
Apple Venus Vol. I

Not many bands release their finest album 20+ years into their career but XTC aren't really like other bands. After a long lay off whilst they were in a contract dispute with Virgin, the band returned in 1999 with this stunning collection of pastoral and orchestrated pop music. Great throughout, the final three songs are the bes...view item »

XTC
Wasp Star (Apple Venus Vol II)

Thank the lord the mooted double Apple Venus album was split into two and therefore the magnificent Apple Venus Vol 1 could stand on it's own two feet. Wasp Star was a more muscular, guitar orientated XTC album but lacks the colour provided by the departed Dave Gregory's guitar playing and arrangements. A good album but always t...view item »

XTC
Skylarking

Now the stuff of legend, XTC were holed up with eccentric producer Todd Rundgren for this 1986 album in which band and producer battled, sniped and argued throughout. You'd never guess listening to the more pastoral parts of the record and despite what the band think, it's a really great album. This version is the reverse polari...view item »

Samara Lubelski
Flickers At The Station

Samara Lubelski is an experimental musician with plenty of credentials in the world of avant-garde improvisation and suchlike, but here on Flickers At The Station she brings her musicianship and songwriting into the service of highly listenable psychedelic pop music, with the kind of lush mystique of some of the best si...view item »

The Beatles
Rubber Soul

Rubber Soul by The Beatles, released in 1965,  was the follow-up to Help! And, therefore, the second album of theirs to consist entirely of original material. By this time, the band had given up touring and were able to focus all of their energies on recording in the studio. The results are b...view item »

The Beatles
The Beatles

Almost 50 years on and we’re still having pub debates as to what should have been on The White Album, or left off. Even if you find Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da grating, or Piggies overly cynical, would you really want it any other way? I’ll always argue that Revolution 9 is a roaring success that granted rock musicians the licence to get thei...view item »

Chromatics
Shadow

Re-press of Chromatics 2015 single Shadow. The track should appeal to anyone who enjoys Chromatics’ 80’s-synth-pop-remembered-through-a-nostalgic-haze sound. And if you do like Shadow, this is the release for you: it contains five different versions, plus extra track ‘White Li...view item »

Teleman
Fünf

Funf is Teleman’s third release following 2014’s Breakfast and 2016’s Sanity - two pretty neat albums, it has to be said. The EP is also their most experimental work. The band decided to throw themselves a curve ball, well, five curve balls to be exact. They worked with a differe...view item »

John Maus
We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves

John Maus is a curious character who looks to be next in line for youth adulation hot on the heels of the likes of Ariel Pink (who Maus has collaborated with as part of Haunted Graffiti and Gary War) and Panda Bear. Upset The Rhythm head honcho Chris Tipton...view item »

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Blue Record

Having Loved UMO's first two albums I was interested to hear this record. The albums opens with "Swim And Sleep (Like A Shark)" of their second album, this version of the song is great and really lets the song shine. This is followed by the track "Faded in the Morning" which is a more slower song. However the pace returns with the third track "S...view item »

Gwenno
Y Dydd Olaf

Welsh groove-pop from Gwenno on Peski. Y Dydd Olaf is an ode to story telling, the preservation of language and the modern sounds of the Welsh underground. The undeniable influence of krautrock giants Neu! and the psychedelic rock sounds of the 60's, are mixed with contemporary poppy grooves and production akin to bands...view item »

Helen
The Original Faces

Check this one out Grouper fans! Liz Harris has formed a band, as in ‘an actual band’ band. Harris’ unmistakeable vocals can thus be heard over a sort of shoegaze/indie-pop backing. Helen still maintains an essentially mystic nature, but it is very welcome to h...view item »

Christine and The Queens
Chaleur Humaine (UK Edition)

Christine, with the support of her Queens, is making big splashes in France: she’s scarcely left their top 40 charts for years. What’s well cool is that she’s managed this great success without compromising the more unusual parts of her sound and sty...view item »

Meggie Brown
10/ 6

7" single from London based newcomer Meggie Brown. Having already received the backing of some of the Scottish indie scene's best and brightest, the album was produced by Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos at Edwyn Collins' studio, it's about time her incendiary indie rock caught a few mo...view item »

Matthew Dear
Bunny

Dear Matthew, thanks for releasing a new album. I don't know what it sounds like yet. I'm told that it's kinda moody and ominous which would certainly offset the fact that it's named Bunny, because rabbits are incredibly cute. I've also heard that Tegan and Sara feature on a track, which is easily the...view item »

The Shins
Wincing The Night Away

Listening to The Shins' album, Wincing The Night Away, is like falling into an oceanic daydream. The music is sleepy, the lyrics are poetic, and the sound is rich and harmonious. The album cover depicts organisms that have tentacles and baleen mouths, revealing the ocean theme that lies beneath. The song titles such as Sea Legs and Girl Sailor s...view item »

The Postal Service
Give Up (Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition)

Here's my original review of the album. My 2015 opinion varies little other than to say 'Such Great Heights' is a fabulous song, the others less so. However this was a zeitgeisty album that hit a certain breed of folks at just the right time. Ben Gibbard's heartfelt vocals over Jimmy Tamborello's electronics hit the mark for an awful lot of ...view item »

Shearwater
Jet Plane and Oxbow

Surprise surprise from Shearwater, who seem to have unleashed a full-blown 1980’s synth-rock album right here. Jet Plane and Oxbow is a collection of big, widescreen songs, designed with the help of Brian Reitzell and Jesca Hoop among others. CD, double LP, or a special, independe...view item »

Washed Out
Life Of Leisure

Here is what we said about the vinyl: Now in on super limited CD!! My ears really pricked up yesterday, as did our Business Lady's. The record responsible is from Washed Out who I've never heard of but Phil informs me that Pitchfork are creaming themselves over them. Okay so this isn't strictly a single but a 6 track mini-alb...view item »

Dum Dum Girls
Too True

Dum Dum Girls, eh? Can someone please explain to me the appeal of the Dum Dum Girls? They're on Sub Pop, often a good label, and they've been plugging away at it for years but they're yet to put out anything that appeals to me. If you're wondering why I've ended up with this record to review then a cursory look at the post-it notes left by other...view item »

Dum Dum Girls
Only in Dreams

Dum Dum Girls' second full length album is a marriage of The Cramps style sonics, Chrissie Hynde style vocals and the occasional Mazzy Star downbeatness. It's a way more polished offering is this r...view item »

Cansei De Ser Sexy

A lovely, fresh little number of an album that would appeal to lovers of odd, Polysic-esque, pidgin English electro pip-pop. ...view item »

Mikaela Davis
Delivery

After self-releasing for a few years, New York harpist/pianist/singer/songwriter/general talent Mikaela Davis has been snapped up by Rounder Records. Delivery, her first LP for the esteemed Massachusetts imprint, is a collection that balances influences from AM rock, 80s pop and a little smidgen of...view item »

The Coral
Magic & Medicine

And finally The Coral album  (Magic & Medicine) has just arrived. Only heard the 1st few tracks but it sounds ace. There's not many bands which are hyped which I like. Usually I can't understand what the fuss is about. They write such top tunes. Not really heard enough of it to write much about it yet but it ...view item »

Gorillaz
Plastic Beach

The Gorillaz' third record features something for almost everyone, from obscurists to pop radio fans. For an album lover like myself, though, this is a long, bloated, anything-goes wreck of a project that I only care to hear maybe 33 percent of ever again. Had this been a similar sounding record with all Albarn vocals and maybe two or three (non...view item »

RDTK (Ricardo Donoso & Thiago Kochenborger)
Human Resources

Denovali Records (Mouse On The Keys, worriedaboutsatan) present the latest LP from a duo who have actually been together for a good 15 years now. Human Resources is the product of Brazilian two-piece RDTK - made up of former Hospital/D...view item »

FARAO
PURE-O

Scandinavia has long been a rich source of inventive, soul-scouring, corrosively dark yet complex pop; here's Farao with her sophomore LP 'Pure-O' to continue the tradition. The new record is themed around those old cousins beauty and destructiveness and plays out their course throughout our human relationships. Farao u...view item »

Soap And Skin
From Gas to Solid / you are my friend

Third album from inexplicable Austrian chart topper Soap&Skin. I say inexplicable not because the music is bad, far from it, but because this is clearly not 'pop' music. From Gas to Solid / you are my friend is an album of sparse gothic beauty, which explores Anja Plaschg's sense of self as sh...view item »

Molly Nilsson
These Things Take Time

Molly Nilsson has made quite a name for herself since this debut album first came out on CD in 2008, so it’s only right that it’s finally seeing a proper vinyl release, with a couple of bonus tracks to bring it up to a mammoth 17 tracks, and a lovely screenprinted poster too. As for the record itself, while I don’t have...view item »

Keston Cobblers Club
Wildfire

‘Wildfire’ is the fifth album release from folk sextet Keston Cobblers Club. Inspired by the British power pop scene and Glasgow’s dreamy indie pop, this record is a collection of sweet anthemic songs built out of swelling orchestral and choral arrangements creating a blanket fort of vocals over their folky foundations....view item »

Desire
Under Your Spell

As much as I enjoyed the film Drive, I'm not sure I can forgive the wave of bands flatly imitating its soundtrack that followed its release. That said, the film's own soundtrack still holds up. Under Your Spell by Desire was part of that soundtrack, and appears here with...view item »

Hilang Child
Years

Bella Union with another yet another record of big-room indie niceness here. This time the accused is Ed Ridman, also known as Hilang Child, and his debut LP Years. These are ten tracks of chest-puffed-out, angel-voiced electro-indie that references everyone from Wild Beasts to ...view item »

Nilüfer Yanya
Do You Like Pain?

Young romantic Nilüfer Yanya has been making waves of late with her spirited bedroom pop. Do You Like Pain? might be the record that catapults the Londoner to mainstream a...view item »

The Siddeleys
What Went Wrong This Time?

As if in a dream I walked into the recent Sarah Records showcase at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds and there in front of me was a man in a The Siddeleys t-shirt. Having only released two singles and a Peel session they are only just barely remembered even by obsessives of the scene like me. Here is their debut single re-pres...view item »

Apple Boutique
Love Resistance

Let's go back to 1987 and this rarity on Creation which featured the talents of Phil King (in literally every indie band of the era) and John Mohan who was only in Felt and the Servants. They are named after a Felt song and were tipped for great things after their one single. None of this happened and they've ha...view item »

Liela Moss
My Name Is Safe In Your Mouth

It’s been a busy couple of years for Liela Moss. After releasing two records in as many years with main group The Duke Spirit, Moss keeps her foot on the gas by dropping her debut solo LP. My Name Is Safe In Your Mouth is an LP of stirring, folkish and vaguely psychedelic songcraft that will appea...view item »

Talk Talk
Spirit Of Eden

Fashioned from innumerable improv sessions, 1988’s Spirit of Eden is where Talk Talk took an experimental turn and, in so doing, secured the legacy that lives on in bands such as Zelienople. Sprawled-out and unhurried song structures, a smattering of strange sound design, a wide instrumental palet...view item »

Tony Molina
Kill The Lights

I just can't believe they are marketing this as an album. It's over by the time you've blown your nose but on the plus side the music is absolutely brilliant. Tony Molina writes perfect mini-jangle pop things that sound like a pint-sized Teenage Fanclub or the Byrds. Opener “Nothing I Can Say” i...view item »

Laurel
Dogviolet

Up ‘n’ coming Londoner Laurel introduces her debut Dogviolet. Named after everyone’s favourite purple, scentless flower, it broods on the complex old chestnut of love. Focused around yearning, expressive guitar riffs and Laurel’s soulful vocals, it’s a strong new entry in this sort of confe...view item »

Ed Sheeran

The year, 2113; the setting, Earth. The planet is a withered corpse. Ravaged by the climate catastrophes and nuclear wars of the previous century, human life has become impossible to support. Societies have either fought themselves into extinction or set off to colonise Mars. The plastic content in the oceans has ...view item »

Ed Sheeran

Life is pain. That, my dear Norman Records™ customer, is just how it is. Break-ups. Boring jobs. Tax returns. Penalty shootouts. Famine. War. Pestilence. Brexit.   There is no escape, and there is no true respite. The moments of happiness, of g...view item »

Massive Attack
Mezzanine

Mezzanine is a dark masterpiece, as black, as glossy and as intimidating as the beetle creature on its cover. Angel and Teardrop turn up on TV often enough (and rightly so), but the whole album is worth digging into for its uneasy moods. This hasn’t been available on record for a while, so...view item »

The Streets
A Grand Don't Come For Free

Upon its release 10 years ago, The Streets second album, A Grand Don’t Come For Free was instantly hailed as another masterpiece to equal his initial clarion call, Original Pirate Material.

Pulp
Different Class

Following the recent renewal of interest in Britpop comes the reissue of Pulp's widely revered 1995 LP 'Different Class'. Pressed onto 180g vinyl, this special issue comes with an insert featuring Cocker's bitingly deft lyrics. Alluding to society and the British class system, 'Different Class' was defiantly of its time, but still resonates toda...view item »

Barrow/Norway hook ups Her's have aligned themselves with a never ending cycle of album titles. 'Invitation to Her's' follows the compilation 'Songs of Her's' and we predict the next one with be 'Thrown out of Her's' or 'The Police Were Round at Her's' or later their Go-Betweens covers album 'Her's Handwriting'.

7" of the title track from Django Django's third album, Marble Skies. This comes backed with a remix from CID RIM, an affiliate of the LuckyMe record label. CID RIM takes the high energy art rock of the band's original, and gives it the electronic edge a...view item »

Recorded to four track whilst whacked out on goof balls and silly string Dean and Gene Ween's efforts on The Pod are...view item »

Christine and The Queens
Chaleur Humaine (Original French Language Edition)

The fact that you can now arm yourself with a French language version of Christine and the Queens unfathomably popular 'Chaleur Humaine' is another display of its wide reaching impact. Useful certainly for French language speakers, those learning French or anyone with an interest in non-threatening electro pop...view item »

Glass Candy
B/E/A/T/B/O/X

Glass Candy are apparently the next big thing. Here's their CD called B/E/A/T/B/O/X which is a load of electro disco cheese. I think it's probably very good for what it is but I can't quite get my head around it as I hate the sounds they use to make their music. I suspect if you like earlier Adult but wanted it a bit more poppy and less dark then y...view item »

Felt
Forever Breathes The Lonely Word

The first Felt album for Creation and the first not to feature guitar wizard Maurice Deebank. Forever Breathes the Lonely Word is kind of a bridge album between their old sound and the lighter more varied work in the second half of the eighties. As a result of Deebank's departure Martin Duffy's organ takes centre stage, wanderin...view item »

Felt
Poem Of The River

For anyone that thinks all the best Felt stuff came in the first part of their career you need to hear Poem of the River. This is a glorious low key album full of glistening guitars and Lawrence's whispered vocals. Six lovely songs including career highlights Stained Glass Windows in the Sky and Dark Red Birds. Utterly essential...view item »

Felt
The Pictorial Jackson Review

The Pictorial Jackson Review is not only brilliantly titled but is one of the best of the latter day Felt records. It's full of wonderfully brief tunes which more often than not sound comically in thrall to Bob Dylan. Try listening to How Spook Got Her Man without thinking of the grizzled troubadour. ...view item »

Felt
Train Above The City

Possibly one of the strangest albums ever made in that Felt leader Lawrence is nowhere to be seen and instead of their usual arty indie-pop you get an album of jazzy instrumentals composed by keyboardist Martin Duffy and drummer Gary Ainge. Musically it bears no resemblance to anything else they've ever done but still fits in wi...view item »

Felt
Me And A Monkey On The Moon

The final Felt album saw the band go out on a rather sombre and perhaps disjointed note on an album that somewhat lacked the distinctive creativity of their previous work. That said it shows a hitherto unseen maturity with a slight country-ish feel and is notable by the appearance of pedal steel player B J Cole. ...view item »

Gulp
All Good Wishes

Gulp are comprised of Super Furry Animals Guto Pryce alongside Lindsey Leven and Gid Goundrey and have become rather expert at making psychedelic mini kraut gems which have a certain pop nous to them that recalls both their parent band and the likes of Stereolab. The band have an inventive and free flo...view item »

Cucumber Concubine / Wingdisk
Bu bu bu bu / The Message in Mint

Look at these two. Well if it isn't our old friends Mark Tranmer (Gnac, Montgolfier Brothers) and Ian Masters (lesser spotted former leader of the Pale Saints). Across the miles they have created two sides of a 7" credited to two bands so it's sort of a split single even though both bands contai...view item »

The Smittens
City Rock Dove

I knew it! The Smittens are a twee indie pop band out of Vermont with a nice line in jangly indie charm but you know what they are obsessed with don't you? What in fact all twee indie pop bands are obsessed with. Dirty grinding filthy sex. They talk about nothing else in the press release. It's all sex, sex sex with these people...view item »

Laura Veirs
Carbon Glacier

Oh I loved this album when I was a much younger man than I am now. 2004 in fact. I'm sure it saw me through some bleak winter or other. This was Laura Veirs breakout record and was the point where her lush and swoon-some style of icy songs really took hold. You can literally smell the Pacific North West on this collection. First...view item »

Ava Luna
Moon 2

Yes please! Ol' arty farts Ava Luna massively impressed us on Infinite House, a record of endlessly rewarding pop music grown out of groove and bombast. On the wonderfully titled and housed Moon 2, they've tried to find nuance and restraint, going after lusher arrangements...view item »

Zuzu
Made On Earth By Humans

Zuzu is a Liverpool-born singer and songwriter who moved to London to pursue her musical ambitions. It turns out she caused enough of a stir to be snapped up by Virgin/EMI. Her debut EP, Made On Earth By Humans shows her talent for sharp lyrics and writing a great hook. She has been likened to Haim and will also...view item »

Spellling
Hard To Please

Classsic. SPELLLING is another example of a misspelt band name but the joke is perhaps on us as the mispelt word is indeed Spell(l)ing. Anyhoo this is the project of Bay Area artist Chystia Cabral who makes swirling, spiritual dance music from her own apartment and even covers Sparks on the B side. ...view item »

Anna Meredith

Varmints is the debut album by Scottish composer, electronic and acoustic musician Anna Meredith. It follows her two EPs, 2012’s Black Prince Fury and 2013’s Jet Black Raider. The music is complex, dynamic, varied, bombastic and confident. Meredith has shared bills with James Blake...view item »

James
