Danny Goffey
Schtick

Who knew so many different artists would emerge out of Supergrass? Well ok there's two in Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey. The latter was formerly known as Vangoffey and released a much praised solo album in 2015 but now he's back under his birth name.  Like every othe...view item »

Alexis Taylor
Listen With(out) Piano

Alexis Taylor is the esteemed face of indietronica kings, Hot Chip. In 2016 he dropped his solo offering, Piano, and he now returns with a companion to his nuanced debut - Listen With(out) Piano. Described as "a series of multiple clothes...view item »

Villagers
The Art Of Pretending To Swim

The return of ol' wobble voice, Conor O' Brien has sat and made this latest Villagers record all by himself in his Dublin studio. Despite this lonesome pursuit, it's an album that adds all kinds of sonic detail and soulfulness to his songwriting resulting in possibly his most accessible music to date. There's an indie's only red...view item »

Years & Years
Palo Santo

New record from popular young people band led by charismatic and enormo-browed singer Olly Alexander.. currently Harrogate's biggest export. The trio play a highly commercial brand of synth pop that appeals to the X Factor crowd but by way of catchy songs and Alexander's left wing, openly gay persona dig a little deeper than the usual download c...view item »

France Gall
1968

One of France’s premier ye-ye singers, France Gall passed away in January of this year, almost exactly a half-century after the release of her seventh LP 1968. Including songs penned by Serge Gainsbourg, David Whitaker and her father Robert Gall, this col...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 »

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 »


The Amazing Singing Record

The Amazing Singing Record contains eight up-and-coming artists from Arizona. Each act contributes two songs. From the wonky country of Gene Tripp, the soothing analogue pop of Electrsad, lof-fi beauty of Amatuer Hour, The throat-ripping anthems of Cereal Milk, ...view item »


The Minimal Wave Tapes Volume One

The Minimal Wave Tapes.. A double LP on Stones Throw which we've been keenly anticipating. The CD we give less of a shit about because we're snobby, but it does exist. As you might've guessed this is a compilation covering the generally minimal, frequently quite chilly DIY synth scene of the 1980s in both Europe and North America, territory well co...view item »

Laetitia Sadier
The Trip

The Sadier steps out of the 'Lab and the results are great. The LP kicks off with a really strong track, a song called "One Million Year Trip". It's a song that has an ascending keyboard line that Rick Wakeman would be proud of and a motorik drum beat. The rest is great and its a solid album. It's a bit like Burt Reynolds. It's reliable and quit...view item »

Geoffrey Landers
1 By 1

Never mind your big names or your new revivals of past glories: listen to the sounds of Geoffery Landers instead, recorded and released with little to no fanfare or attention between the years 1979 and 1987. What you hear across these twenty rare cuts is a variety of experimental approaches to electronic music, with a playful fe...view item »

Maps & Atlases
Lightlessness Is Nothing New

After a long six years out of the game, Maps & Atlases return with a new LP. Anyone expecting the time-signature acrobatics of math-rock milestones like Perch Patchwork...view item »

LCD Soundsystem
Sound Of Silver

LCD Soundsystem's second release differs significantly from their debut, however not to let that discourage as it offers its own merits. Sound Of Silver feels as it can act to the low near or after the end of the party, with their first album being the party, offering songs like 'Someone Great' which elicits an emotional response which can reson...view item »

Tim Burgess
Inspired Again

Nearly a decade ago The Charlatans frontman, Tim Burgess got together with Ladyhawke, Deb Googe of My Bloody Valentine, Martin Duffy of Primal Scream, Josh Heyward of The Horrors and Stefan Halperin of The Klaxons to fight the p...view item »

Panda Bear
A Day With The Homies

We now have a reason for why Noah Lennox sat out Animal Collective’s Meeting of the Waters EP that came out midway through 2017 - he was finishing off his first solo release since 2015. This limited-edish 12” sees Lennox retreating into the deeper frequencies, combining his trademark ...view item »

Young Galaxy
Privileged Poor Remixes

Earlier this year when awarding Young Galaxy’s hopeless album 4 out of 10 I came to the conclusion that they have ended up with a sound something akin to School of Seven Bells as manipulated by Simon Cowell. Not that this could be a general worldwide opinion as my finger is so far away from the p...view item »

Xander Duell
Experimental Tape No2. Vol 1

A peculiar and very limited LP of experimental pop on Mexican Summer. Judging by the cover and title alone I was expecting a bunch of solo bedroom meditations, but this is very much an experimental modern take on 70s soul. The influences do range further than that, and this guy clearly knows his stuff, but at its heart this record seems to b...view item »

Anna Meredith
Nautilus

The best and incidentally first song from Anna Meredith’s miasma catastrophe ‘Varmints’, this 12” celebrates “Nautilus” the way it deserves, giving it its whole own plate of wax to spin around on. The track’s triumphant horn fanfare is matched with synths that resemble two b-list horror movies sizing eac...view item »

Jane Weaver and Virginia Wing / Death And Vanilla / Noveller
Lost Library

The return of Fire records "Lost Library" series is a stormer with Jane Weaver singing atop Virginia Wing on a Suzanne Menzel song, Noveller tackling John Carpenter's 'The Thing' and Death and Vanilla re-imagine Bert Jansch's “Moonshine”. All showcase the female fron...view item »

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 »

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 »

Melody's Echo Chamber
Bon Voyage

It's been awhile but since Melody Echo Chamber's debut in 2012 since then she's fallen out with its producer Kevin Parker (Tame Impala) and had a serious but unspecified accident which left her hospitalised. On the early sections of opener 'Cross My Heart' it sounds that nothing has really changed. It is gorgeous, gallic pop with a beautiful mel...view item »

Haruomi Hosono
Paraiso

Haruomi Hosono, reissued here to the joy of all! Paraiso is the last album of Hosono’s so-called Tropical Trilogy, three albums that deliver on their sunny, juicy, groovy tropical promise. This is the first time that this beautiful material has ever been reissued to vinyl outside of Japan...view item »

Haruomi Hosono
omni Sight Seeing

Haruomi Hosono, reissued here to the joy of all! Omni Sight Seeing was recorded in 1989, during a period where Hosono’s Yellow Magic Orchestra was taking a break. Never one to rest on his laurels, Haruomi spent this time making this beautiful international pop rec...view item »

Haruomi Hosono
Philharmony

Haruomi Hosono, founder of the legendary Yellow Magic Orchestra gets his abstract juices flowing with this exciting avant-garde reissue. Originally released in 1982, Philharmony is a jaunty journey through pop, synth workouts and blissful experimental wonder. Reissued in fine style by Light In The Attic....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 »

Mac DeMarco
Salad Days

Yes its the Return of the Mac. This is Mac De Marco’s third full length record and its safe to say that if you like the first two then you are going to find plenty to swoon over here.  He’s long discarded the pitched down croon he used on the first side of the corking ‘Rock and Roll Nightclub’ debut and has adopted a...view item »

Bjork
Blissing Me

Taken from Bjork’s latest full length Utopia, here we have two remixes of the track Blissing Me. One with experimental artist serpentwithfeet’s (Tri Angle) unique gospel like voice, and the second removes everything except the harp and Bjork’s vocals. Limited ...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 »

The Essex Green
Cannibal Sea

The Essex Green were a part of that much-loved Elephant 6 collective, though this grouping was all gone by the time they released their third album Cannibal Sea in 2006. Positively lovely psychedelic pop to make you happy and the sun come out. Here reissued on vinyl by Merge, with a download code that a...view item »

The Essex Green
The Long Goodbye

Fifteen years after initial release, here comes The Long Goodbye again, reissued in all its glory. This is the second album from The Essex Green, and their sound on it comes pouring through the speakers in waves of lovely joy. Psychedelic pop music just like they used to make it. Reissued by Merge on vinyl with a downlo...view item »

Mitra Mitra
Marionettes

Here's a new thing on the ever popular Polytechnic Youth label this time from this Austrian duo who play icy electronic pop reminiscent of the early days of Mute Records although the band claim not to be influenced by a particular style. Serene and melodic the album contains eight tracks and is a one time pressing of 300 only. ...view item »

Sebastien Tellier
Sexuality

Several reissues of smooth electro-soul-pop singer Sebastien Tellier’s music are upon us. Sexuality is a particularly sleek and erotic suite, matching the needless-to-say-excellent production of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (of Daft bloody Punk) with Tellie...view item »

Cigarettes After Sex
Cigarettes After Sex

Again, why would you call a band that? Terrible terrible name.  I’d be surprised if this album is being talked about in ten years time and it’s all because of that name. The album actually isn’t as good as other similar records by Mazzy Star, Low and ...view item »

Kississippi
Sunset Blush

Kississippi! This project that Zoe Reynolds has been working with since 2014 at last reaches the fruition of a full-length debut album, and she’d reckon that Sunset Blush...view item »

Sparks
The Best & The Rest Of The Island Years 74-78

Although they've intermittently done brilliant stuff over the years (and continue to do so), the golden era for Sparks was probably the 1974-1978 era when they were signed to Island. This included great albums such as Kimono My House and Propaganda. This collection comprises the 'best' bits and on LP2 you ...view item »

Tenniscoats
Music Exists Disc 3

This is the third time now they've told us that music exists. We know it does; we just think it sucks. We don't think psychedelic, folksy and avant-rock duo Tenniscoats suck, though -- especially not on this collaboration with members of Swedish post-rock band Tape, who expand their song...view item »

Ta-Ra
SunrayZ

French upstart—and Youtube sensation—Ta-Ra (formerly known as Ta-Ha) drops her debut vinyl release with ‘SunrayZ’, a mini LP showcasing her trademark ethereal R&B. She’s dark and brooding on ‘Kawasaki Ninja’, and chill and dreamy on ‘Death Ray’, but it’s her syrupy,...view item »

Talk Talk
It’s My Life

This is the one where things started to change. Producer and multi instrumentalist Tim Friese-Green was drafted in and immediately set about turning the previous 'new romantic image' into something more special. Still the hits kept coming with 'Such a Shame', 'Dum Dum Girl' and the stellar title track beautifully combining mainstream pop and sop...view item »

The Beatles
Abbey Road

Abbey Road was the penultimate album by The Beatles. It’s predecessor, Let It Be, was all but finished before the recording of Abbey Road began, however, Abbey Road was released first. The album is notable for George Harrison’s songwriting coming to the fore, seven son...view item »

The Streets
Original Pirate Material

The classic debut before he went a bit soft. This was genuinely thrilling back in 2002 and it's combination of UK garage/hip-hop and Mike Skinner's lyrical observations were a unique and fascinating combination. Now we have Sleaford Mods a lot of his work sounds a bit....meh... but this is the good one and still sounds fresh.&nb...view item »

First Aid Kit
The Big Black & The Blue

Time for a slice of power harmonising courtesy of Swedish super-teens Klara (16) and Johanna Söderberg (19); a.k.a First Aid Kit. Since wowing everyone with tasteful covers of tunes by Fleet Foxes and Buffy Sainte-Marie they got hooked up with Wichita to present 'The Big Black and The Blue'. First Aid Kit are all about the vocal harmonies so f...view item »

Sunstack Jones
Sunstack Jones

The third LP from Merseysiders Sunstack Jones sees light of day via that most Liverpudlian of labels Deltasonic (The Zutons, pretty much everything by The Coral). This eponymous record is full of lovely psychedelic skiffles that have no agenda other than to soundtrack a British ...view item »

Prince
Piano & A Microphone 1983

Prince presented himself to the world with consummate showmanship and an enigmatic persona that made his fans want to know even more about him. Piano & A Microphone gives fans a insight into his inspiration and songwriting process. Taken from a home-recorded cassette in dating from 1983, this album features Prince playing ea...view item »

Embrace
Love Is A Basic Need (Orchestral)

It’s the semi-final of the 2018 Fifa World Cup™, and it’s Germany vs. England. After a thrilling contest that involved a bust-up between Gundogan and Henderson, a perfectly good goal by Draxler that was disallowed despite the use of VAR and Marcus Rashford nutmegging Mats Hummels, it’s finished a draw and gone to penaltie...view item »

Eyes of Others
I See You In The Shrubs

When Eyes Of Others' track, I See You In The Shrubs got a big thumbs up from the influential Parisian duo Les Yeux Orange, it started popping up in record boxes in clubs all over the place. It is presented here along with remixes by none other than Andrew Weatherall and Donald Dust...view item »

Gruff Rhys
Babelsberg

Very talented bloke both with Super Furry Animals and solo I had enormous high hopes for this from the early press clippings but despite many examples of strong songwriting skills I'm finding Babelsberg a claustrophobic and over-sweetened listen.  Babelsberg is indeed an ostentatious album by an artist who is usually noted for ...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 »

Chromatics
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Chromatics are a hypnotic electronic four-piece from Portland. Part of an impressive string of 2015 releases, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun is their synthpop exploration of the 1983 Cyndi Lauper hit. The record contains four slightly different versions of the same cover, plus three instrumentals. Rele...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 »

The Soft Moon
The Soft Moon

Well I never. One of those numerous acts on the Captured Tracks imprint has made quite a stunning album here. All the long-players on this relatively young label so far have been pretty damn fine, but there's summat about Luis Vasquez's dystopian motorik doom pop that is decidedly remarkable. Although there are percussive elements that recall Jo...view item »

Solange
Losing You

You couldn’t make this job up. I’ve just stroked my chin effectively to Harold Budd, feeling like a lost boy attempting to explain its highbrow sounds. Now I’m going to tell you about the new record by Solange who is ...view item »

Virginia Wing
Ecstatic Arrow

I dunno if you know, but it’s pretty hard to do what Virginia Wing do. Maybe it sounds like it, sometimes, and maybe at others it doesn’t: in that conflict is the charm of their sound, as widescreen and blissed out as it is tinkered on a whim in someone’s bedroom. On “Be Released”, the intro to their new record &lsq...view item »

Julian Cope
Peggy Suicide

Cope’s seventh album marks his reinvention and the beginnings of his Arch-Drude persona. Having moved away from attempts at chart pop with the understated home-recorded albums Skellington and Droolian, this sprawling double LP showed a more ambitious and fully-formed new direction. The songs are politicised, dealing with environmentalism a...view item »

Beyoncé
Lemonade

Steering away from the sheeny chart-leading bangers that made Queen Bey a hegemonic pop power, Lemonade is yet another pioneering reinvention from someone exploring new territory. Risk-taking has become alien from many modern powerhouse artists; but so long as the likes of Beyonce keep us on our toes, th...view item »

Jamie Isaac
(04:30) Idler

I so much wanted to like this as I love his previous album 'Couch Baby' and the even better earlier EPs and I do enjoy it to a degree but.... It's one of those records that both exemplifies the skill of the artist but also frustratingly shows what might have been with better choices. First up  - he has a glorious, glorious sound. Al...view item »

Component#4
A Sentence

Have any of our customers ever been to prison? Well Mike Rowley AKA Component #4 used to work in one and this EP is inspired by the sounds and smells of what goes on behind bars. It is a concept piece about young person frustrated by their life taking in real events and mirroring Rowley's own thoughts and feelings.&nbs...view item »

Anna Calvi
Hunter

Why is she so wet? What has she been doing? Anyway for this third album for Domino Anna Calvi has made a visceral and truthful record that explores those very 2018 themes of sexuality and gender identity resulting in her most raw and primal record to date. Recorded by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, ...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 »

Wild Nothing
Indigo

My giddy aunt this is an 80s-sounding album. Jack Tatum’s Wild Nothing gig might always have had a fair whack of New Order/The Cure/Echo & The Bunnymen about it, but fourth LP Indigo is the most unabashedly pop-type-thing that Tatum&rsquo...view item »

Gabriella Cohen
Pink Is The Colour of Unconditional Love

'Australia's Sweetheart' screams the press release. Definitely better than Minogue, Everage or Barnett then.  This is Gabriella Cohen's second album of perky and quite crunchy pop music. It's simple and effective rather than thrill a minute exciting. The lyrics on 'Baby' must be tongue-in-cheek because no-one over the age of three could hav...view item »

Jorja Smith
Lost & Found

Following a bunch of self-released singles, Walsall-born Jorja Smith drops her debut album, Lost & Found. The twenty year old is known for her collaborations with Stormzy, Drake and Kali Uchis, but the twelve tracks on her debut give her the chance to show us the real Jorja ...view item »

Karen O feat. Michael Kiwanuka
Yo! My Saint

Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs wrote Yo! My Saint for fashion brand Kenzo. The French/Japanese clothing company asked Karen O to collaborate in what has been a surge of artistic creativity leading to the release of the spring/summer clothing collection. Michael Kiwanuka provides additional vocals. L...view item »

The Housemartins
London 0 Hull 4

London 0 Hull 4 was the debut album by The Housemartins. It was originally released in 1986 and was where it all began for vocalist Paul Heaton and bass player Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim. Their mix of jangly guitar pop and thoughtful ballads saw singles such as Flag Day, Sheep...view item »

Jamie T
Panic Prevention

Another of last years buzz acts was the intriguing Lahndan pop monkey JAMIE T. Honestly, he sounds like a white indie Dizzee Rascal on his fine debut LP, 'Panic Prevention'. He's got cheek & soul. He's this years Tom Vek (a hugely creative musical magpie, very of the moment). Another of those genre straddling pop ma...view item »

Beck
Guero

Guero was the sixth or ninth album by Beck, depending on how you count ‘em and was originally released in 2005. It was produced by The Dust Brothers who also produced his classic Odelay album and also features the Brazilian Tropicalia influences he first showed on Mutations. Cont...view item »

Diplo
California

Diplo, the super-producer (do we still use that term?) behind Major Lazer and many big pop smashes, provides the people with a six track EP of new material. Though it's just an EP, he’s managed to squeeze in eight guest artists into the...view item »

Get Well Soon
The Horror

Get Well Soon is the musical project of German multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, Konstantin Gropper. The Horror is his sixth album and like his previous efforts, it offers up some musical complexity and intelligent lyrics. Gropper has previously collaborated with filmmaker Wim Wenders on the soundtrack to his 2008 fi...view item »

Jonathan Bree
Sleepwalking

Second solo LP from New Zealand singer/songwriter and producer Jonathan Bree, formerly of the duo The Brunettes. With a baritone that evokes a slightly more chilled out Jarvis Cocker, Bree blends 60s pop influences with orchestral elements, and lyrics that explore the joys and pit...view item »

Hood
British Radars

The lo-fi indie crew known as Hood originally wanted British Radars to be released as a a 7” in 1994, but nothing came of it. In 2015 however, these 6 tracks have indeed been pressed to vinyl, in a limited edition! Several alternate versions dragged up from the archives, very exciting for Hood hea...view item »

Death And Vanilla
The Tenant

In which Death and Vanilla’s core trio (Marleen Nilsson, Anders Hansson and Magnus Bodin) take time out from crafting evocative slices of ‘60s psych-pop pastiche to make (OK once more, following ‘Vampyr’) a haunting, eerie soundtrack to Polanski’s 1976 finale to his '...view item »

RDTK (Ricardo Donoso & Thiago Kochenborger)
Human Resources

Laura Jean

Chapter Music present the latest LP from Australian Music Prize nominee and Jenny Hval collaborator Laura Jean. Devotion is quite a departure from the music of Jean’s previous albums, with the singer trading her previously folksy sound in for a peppy synth-pop look. Tracks like &l...view item »

Scent
KIM EP

The only bit of Scent's press release that makes any sense is that they were signed to Wichita via an unsolicited demo. I'd refuse to believe this (though they say they have email proof so I'm going to have to take their word). So what made Wichita do the unbelievable and sign a band without a billion managers and agents doing the networking? No...view item »

Mazzy Star
Still

The first new music in four years from David Roback and Hope Sandoval AKA Mazzy Star comes in the form of a 4-track 12” EP. Still features three brand new songs along with a new version of the title track from their 1993 masterpiece, So Tonight That I Might See. 12” EP on Rhymes of an Hour....view item »

Saint Etienne
Tales From Turnpike House

Saint Etienne switches moods as easily as most people change clothes. Tales From Turnpike House is a lovely example of how a seemingly dull topic -- suburbia -- can yield unexpected beauty. From the folk delicacy of "Sun in My Morning" to the more upbeat "Milk Bottle Symphony," Sarah Cracknell's lyrics again evoke a stunning portrait of place. "...view item »

SONOIO
Fine

A nine track release from SONOIO called Fine that draws together electronic sounds, synths and powerful vocals.. This one is available on CD, and two different versions of vinyl. The first being a limited edition, translucent green coloured vinyl LP and the other being your good old reliable black vinyl. Released on Dias. ...view item »

Richard Thorncroft
The Unadorned Truth

Aptly described as “Erotic Power Rock”, and that pretty much sums it up, throw in every possible 80s cliché and you’ve got this three track single from Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barrett), also known as Mindhorn, the detective from Barrett’s latest film of the same name. W...view item »

Richard Youngs
Amaranthine

Richard Youngs is one of the more interesting and prolific experimental artists on the UK scene right now, and on this here EP he's giving us four more long songs of his trademark weirdness. With mysterious album art on which the only text is the name of the label it's released on, this al...view item »

Jenny Hval
The Long Sleep

Jenny Hval returns from a hiatus, relative to her prolific standards, with a novella, a collab album as Lost Girls, and a new EP of her own solo work. Are you not entertained? Having made two brilliant records that approached pop via polemics, she here wipes the slate clean by approaching the material of ‘The Long Sleep’ with intuiti...view item »

Tracyanne & Danny
Tracyanne & Danny

How twee is too twee? For me the line is drawn somewhere around Camera Obscura. I quite like a lot of, say,  Belle & Sebastien's songs  but try me on one of Tracyanne Campbell's former bands ditties and it's more than likely I'll be as sick as if I'd just eaten a bag full o...view item »

Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life

The Wombats are back back back, with their fourth album to date: who knew? The mid-2000’s indie upstarts are now an international proposition, and they’ve got some synths now too. Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life (is this a problem The Wombats face?) is released on the group’s own ...view item »

tUnE-YaRdS
I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life

When the band is doing more than just wipe their windscreen, it’s kinda nice to hear them grow into their professional endgame. Merill Garbus has been growing tUnE-yArDs incrementally, moving her project’s initially jittery, noisy and no-fi aesthetic into different avenues of danceability. On ‘I Can Feel You Creep Into My Priva...view item »

The Shins
The Worms Heart

The creative whizz behind The Shins, James Mercer had an itch he needed to scratch following the recording of their last album, Heartworms, and scratch it he did. He re-recorded the album, introducing acoustic guitars and a slower tempo to fast tracks and injecting the slower tracks with a bit of rock oomph. The Worms Heart was ...view item »

Curve were around for a fair amount of time and Cuckoo is, in my opinion, their best album. Just hear me out. There is no doubt that ‘Doppelgänger’ was a great album and di...view item »

Drab Majesty
Careless

Drab Majesty is the solo project of Deb Demure, who you may have seen drumming with the band Marriages. On Careless he jams the sounds feelings of his 1980’s LA childhood into Depeche Mode-esque dark synth-pop. The vinyl is a fetching shade of black, pressed in a ...view item »

Yello
Toy

Yello, the Oh Yeah-producing synth-pop pioneers, are back with a thirteenth album, having been quiet for a whole nine years. Toy is as fun and groovy as the Swiss group’s classic stuff, with darkly deadpan vocals over bouncy synths. Double LP or CD editions on Universal. The cover is yello-wy which must b...view item »

Beck

Every few years Beck does the decent thing and releases an album of haunting acoustic tracks, usually when he’s had a relationship break up or is in the middle of some kind of crisis or other.This album seems to have come following several wilderness years for Mr Han...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
Tigermilk

Belle & Sebastian released their first record, 'Tigermilk', way back in 1996, when indie pop was fresh and new and barely a teenager. It's the start of a long songwriting career for Stuart Murdoch, who was the only songwriter for the band at this point, and shows off soft, delicately made songs that hadn't quite become fanciful and twee yet....view item »

Jamie T
Kings & Queens

I had heard "The Man's Machine" on the radio and instantly fell in love. It took a while for me to find the song, but when I did I sought out Kings & Queens right away. Like "The Man's Machine", I fell in love with this album... and all of Jamie T. I loved the album from the beats in "Sticks N' Stones" to the calming effect of "Jilly Armeen"...view item »
