Moloko
I Am Not A Doctor

Always ones for an interesting album title, Moloko were a duo out of Sheffield most notable for spawning Roisin Murphy now a successful solo artist in her on right. I Am Not A Doctor was their second album which saw the duo experiment in drum and bass and synth pop. It is notable for containing the track Sing It Back which when remixed by Boris Dlugosch became a dancefloor smash.

The Cardigans
Emmerdale

Emmerdale was the first album by The Cardigans. The Swedish indie-pop sensations went on to much bigger and more well-known things, but this is where it all started for them. It includes their first Black Sabbath cover, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. AND, yes, it is named after the farm-based ITV soap opera. 180g vinyl LP on Polydor.

Blueboy
If Wishes Were Horses

Indie pop label Sarah released Blueboy's first record back in 1992, so obviously this is a twee pop affair, though rather than be full of tender full-band choruses and jangly guitars, it's a lot slower and predominantly acoustic. This modest, little known record is back.

Yves Tumor
Safe In The Hands of Love

Safe In the Hands of Love was first released in fragments; from the single ‘Noid’ being labelled Pitchfork’s Best New Track, to the release of a Daniel Sannwald-directed video ‘Licking An Orchid (ft James K)’ to Zane Lowe premiering ‘Lifetime’ on Beats 1. 24 hours later, the whole album is laid bare in all its experimental-pop-music glory. Taking inspiration from trip-hop to jazz to the melancholy mourning of the synthesiser, the album expertly manoeuvres across genres.

The Beatles
Magical Mystery Tour

The Beatles are at their most whimsical, bizarre and psychedelic here, but there's so many perfect pop songs you forgot to notice that it's one of the more off the wall ones. Sandwiched in-between the baroque pop masterpiece 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' and the sprawling 'White Album', 'Magical Mystery Tour' is a short but sweet album which has permeated all psychedelic pop to come. Featuring the classics 'I Am The Walrus', 'Penny Lane', 'Strawberry Fields Forever', 'Baby You're a Rich Man' and 'All You Need Is Love', it's a record as essential as any Beatles album.

The Slow Readers Club
The Wait

As the Lancashire Post so aptly puts it The Slow Readers Club are the kind of band that many people haven't heard of but manage to sell out large venues and have a Top 10 album. The Manchester band play a vibrant uplifting form of indie rock and here return for a limited edition 7" for the Love Record Stores thing containing fan favourite The Wait backed with National Institution. 

Carly Rae Jepsen
Dedicated

Emotion by Carly Rae Jepsen was, in this humble writer's opinion, one of the greatest albums ever made. And it would have been tough for anyone to match the giddy highs that album produced. On 2019's Dedicated, she more or less succeeds, creating an album just as suited to tidying your house, as it is to bouncing around with glee at a show.

Saint Etienne
Words and Music by Saint Etienne

Words and Music was the 2012 album by long running dance pop collective Saint Etienne. Like a lot of their latter day albums it features a concept which this time is based around how music affects your life and can help you in bad times. Therefore the album has a very nostalgic and melancholic feel informed by the band's deep knowledge of classic pop. 

The Clean
Anthology

Anthology serves as a celebration of The Clean, a band whose influence extends so far beyond their New Zealand home that even if you have never heard of The Clean before, you have surely heard of some of the bands (Pavement, Yo La Tengo, and Superchunk, to name a few) who have been influenced by their unique blend of homemade garage rock, hook-filled melodies, and psychedelic experimentalism. The album is a compilation from across The Clean’s legendary career, which began in 1981 and continues today. Merge originally released the 2-CD Anthology in 2003, but in celebration of our 25th anniversary, we felt the time was right to release this essential collection on quadruple LP.

The Charlatans
Melting Pot

A long overdue repress of the greatest hits album covering the earlier career of the Madchester survivors who weren't from Manchester. This has pretty much all the essential tracks from the years 1990 to 1997 when the Charlatans were signed to Beggars Banquet. Including indie disco staples, 'The Only One I Know' and 'Just When Your Thinking Things Over', a remix from the Chemical Brothers of 'Patrol' and lesser known gems like 'Can't Get Out Of Bed'. Double vinyl press.

The Charlatans
Between 10th & 11th (Expanded Edition)

Between 10th & 11th is the second album by The Charlatans. It was originally released in 1992. Here we have an expanded reissue on clear vinyl and CD. You get the original album plus the highly sought after live show dubbed 'Isolation 21.2.91' which was recorded in Chicago. Includes the singles Weirdo, Tremolo Song and I Don’t Want To See The Sights.

John Grant
Gets Schooled

John Grant - the Father John Misty it’s OK to like - has his limited edish Rough Trade EP Gets Schooled repressed by Bella Union. Each of these five tracks finds Grant dueting with a different leftfield folk luminary. Sinead O’Connor is the headline name, but we also have appearances from Villagers, Beth Orton, Conor O’Brien and Damien Dempsey.

Cigarettes After Sex
EP I

Cigarettes After Sex are gearing themselves up for the release of their debut full-length album this year, and what better way to prepare than by reassessing older material? EP 1 was originally released in 2012, setting the tone for the band’s lusciously dark ambient pop sound. Reissued on vinyl, CD and cassette tape by the Spanish Prayers label.

Hannah Diamond
Reflections

Not to be confused in any way, shape or form with former TVam presenter Anne Diamond, Hannah Diamond was part of PC Music but has now unleashed her first solo beast. It is a batch of scrubbed and shiny pop with a skewed-dance production which could be seen to rival SOPHIE in the weird modern pop compartment. It's dead personal too, with songs all about relationships, fractured or otherwise.

The Beths
Warm Blood

New Zealand four piece the Beths sprung to prominence with their debut album Future Me Hates Me but who knew they had already made a five track EP? Well here it is in all it's glory showcasing the catchy, buzzy sound that led Future Me Hates Me to be such a killer. Expect ear-friendly indie with nods to the Lemonheads, Flying Nun and Best Coast.

Bat For Lashes
Lost Girls

Natasha Khan gets back to Bat For Lashes for the project’s fifth album, and it’s vintage-tinted synth-pop baby! Lost Girls positions itself as a soundtrack to an imaginary 80’s teen movie, and it certainly fits that bill, with all the tropes and details in just the right place. Lost Girls is released by Bat For Lashes Records.

Mac DeMarco / Haruomi Hosono
Honey Moon

Turns out that Mac DeMarco is a huge fan of Japanese legend Haruomi Hosono and as part of this ongoing series from Lights in the Attic has chosen to cover 'Honey Moon' in his inimitable style whilst also singing in Japanese. You'll remember this series from the time Ariel Pink covered Donnie & Joe Emerson's 'Baby' and the format remains the same here  - you get the cover on the A side and the original on the flip.

Kim Petras
Clarity

Clarity is the first full length album by Los Angeles-based German pop singer / songwriter, Kim Petras. It was released digitally back in 2019, four months before her second album! Anyway, now we have the LP. This is a sad album in which Petras takes you through all the trials and tribulations related to breaking your heart. Includes the single ‘Icy’.

Beabadoobee
Fake It Flowers

Fake It Flowers is the highly anticipated debut album from British singer-songwriter beabadoobee. Building up her massive fanbase off the back of a stream of excellent EPs since the beginning of 2018 - not to mention the viral sensation of ‘Coffee’ - Bea Kristi is one of the most promising young talents in a long time.

One of the less heralded but nevertheless remarkable highlights from New Order’s golden period in the early Eighties, ‘Thieves Like Us’ is remastered and re-issued on 12” vinyl. It’s part of the band’s campaign surrounding the Definitive Edition re-release of 1983 album Power, Corruption & Lies.

New Order scour the vaults once again to bring us the ‘Definitive Edition’ of their 1983 masterpiece Power, Corruption & Lies. As well as the album itself being re-mastered and pressed to vinyl, this lavish box set includes two CDs containing unreleased writing session material and the band’s 1982 John Peel session, two DVDs capturing New Order live at The Hacienda and Kilkenny, their 1984 Play At Home documentary film, and a 48-page hardback book of rare photos and new essays.

Eartheater
Phoenix: Flames Are Dew Upon My Skin

Recorded during a ten-week artistic residency in northern Spain, Phoenix: Flames Are Dew Upon My Skin is the latest ambitious project from performance artist Eartheater. Full of baroque guitar passages, swelling orchestral arrangements and centred around her operatic vocals, it’s an album of opposites being resolved, symbolised by the record’s sub-title.

The Nix feat. Laetitia Sadier
Until Now All Is Well

A collective of musicians brought together by Seb Kellig and former Franz Ferdinand member Nick McCarthy, The Nix release another single on 7” vinyl. Based around Mal Waldron’s ‘Warm Canto’, ‘Until Now All Is Well’ features Laetitia Sadier from legendary avant-garde rock band Stereolab. 

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.

Super Furry Animals
Radiator (20th Anniversary Remaster)

Following on from the hugely successful 20th anniversary re-issue of their debut 'Fuzzy Logic' comes this expanded version of the follow up 'Radiator'.The 2CD and download versions contain B sides, alternate versions and unreleased demos whilst the original album appears on the vinyl remastered for 2017 ears. 

Parcels
Live Vol. 1

An interesting interim from the Australian band Parcels  - a live-in-the-studio album. It could be a bit of a blast as their previous work hits the summer fun knob on the head. They've had a single produced by Daft Punk for God's sake and their is blissfully dreamy danceable stuff somewhere between Chic, Metronomy and Justice if you were asking these ears.  

Moscoman
Time Slips Away

Moscoman is the music-making moniker of Chen Moscovici. He makes house, acid, techno, dark disco and synth music that comes with indie / alternative sensibilities. Time Slips Away is his second album and features guest appearances from Teleman’s Tom Sanders, Wooze, Niki Kini, Vanity Fairy and Nuphar. On Moshi Moshi.

STRFKR
Future Past Life

For his project’s sixth studio album, STRFKR leader Josh Hodges collaborated long-distance with Dutch musicians Mathias Janmat and David Hoogerheide. The result, Future Past Life, is a sonic stretching and stripping-back of the electro-pop perfection the group achieved on 2016’s Being No One, Going Nowhere. 

Glass Animals
Dreamland

Dreamland is the third album by Oxford psych pop / electronic indie band Glass Animals. It’s their first outing since 2016’s How To Be A Human Being. The album is built on the band’s experiences during the time between the albums. The one that looms largest being the bike accident that nearly killed drummer Joe Seaward. It’s fair to say it carries some emotional heft. 

Oasis
(What’s The Story) Morning Glory? (Remastered)

Following on from 'Definitely Maybe', Big Brother are reissuing Oasis' second record and Britpop standard, 'What's The Story (Morning Glory)'. It will be available as CD, double LP or deluxe CD - the latter of which includes a 56 page hardback book, demos of "Hello" and "She's Electric", a replica 12", a replica cassette and a bunch of live tracks.  Just what the world needs, eh?

JARV IS
Beyond The Pale

Former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker unveils the debut album from his JARV IS project - a band formed with Serafina Steer, Emma Smith, Andrew McKinney, Jason Buckle and Adam Betts. Following the great reception last summer for its debut single ‘Must I Evolve’, Beyond The Pale marks a return to form for one of British indie’s most iconic figures.

Public Service Broadcasting
Inform - Educate - Entertain

Released in response to overwhelming demand from their fans, Public Service Broadcasting bring us a DVD containing 11 original films created as visual accompaniment to their 2013 debut album Inform - Educate - Entertain, designed to be played as a backdrop to the band’s live performances. In addition, the album itself is re-issued on vinyl.

Real Estate
Real Estate

Oh this album. The first time I'd come across Real Estate. It was glued to my turntable that Pudsey spring. Its beautiful guitar work and mumbled melodies soundtracking the onset of summer. It's more fractured, more lo-fi than their later work, the laid back songs seemingly recorded in their rehearsal room on a dusky day. Essential Jersey indie pop for fans of Yo La Tengo and the Feelies.

Sean Nicholas Savage
Life Is Crazy

The 14th studio album from Canadian cult hero Sean Nicholas Savage, Life Is Crazy marks a slight departure for the ultra-prolific singer-songwriter. Jettisoning percussion and bass altogether, Savage’s writing is vulnerable and exposed, accompanied by strings and piano to accentuate his reflections and philosophising. 

Mariangela
Mariangela

An exhumation of a long-lost gem of early electronic pop. Made shortly after she signed with a major at the age of just 13 in the mid-Seventies, with the help of then-rising star Vangelis, Mariangela Celeste’s beautiful Mariangela was barely released in Western Europe. This re-issue ought to put things right!

The Beatles
Revolver

Revolver by The Beatles is regarded by many as their best album. It’s the second album they made after giving up playing live and the use of studio trickery really began to enhance their concise pop. Originally released in 1966, it’s fair to say that this changed the shape of everything that came after it and is still doing so. Remastered 180g audiophile vinyl on Parlophone.

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 definitely of its time, but still resonates today.       

Lana Del Rey
Born To Die (The Paradise Edition)

Originally recorded for a stand-alone EP 11 months after the 2012 release of Lana Del Rey’s second album, Polydor releases the eight tracks that made up The Paradise Edition of Born To Die on vinyl. Includes the singles ‘Blue Velvet’ and ‘Ride’, and comes with a limited slipcase to hold the Born To Die album itself.  *THIS DOES NOT COME WITH THE ORIGINAL BORN TO DIE ALBUM*

New Order
Power, Corruption and Lies

New Order’s second full-length achieves a fine balance between electronic and guitar-based music. While the preceding Movement LP was the work of a band who couldn’t quite shake off the weight of their past as Joy Division, Power, Corruption and Lies and the contemporary Blue Monday 12” saw them define a singular identity. We All Stand and Leave Me Alone still have the guitar-driven angst of old, but the Blue Monday variation 5 8 6 and Ecstasy were ground-breaking forays into a Hi-NRG-influenced sequencer-driven style, enhanced by the unmistakable lead basslines of Peter Hook. Also Barney got over his reticence and became a proper lead singer. Housed in a high-concept, die-cut Peter Saville sleeve, it’s still an utter joy today.

Jay-Jay Johanson
Old Dog

Jay-Jay Johanson initially planned this LP as a Record Store Day release but.. well we all know what happened to that so this is coming out as a standalone album. He is known for his cinematic sounds and melancholy vocals so it is perhaps fitting that here he turns his hand to covering seven famous movie songs such as Moon River and the perfectly-apt-for-these-times Send in the Clowns. 

Logic System
Venus

Hideki Matsutake was a busy man in 1981. He was in high demand in the Tokyo music scene for his keyboard programming skills which led him to work with Akiko Yano, YMO, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Mkwaju Ensemble. He also managed to record a couple of albums himself under the name Logic System. Venus was the second of those albums and saw Matsuake exploring funkier and more organic sounds than he did on its techno predecessor, Logic.

Lorde
Melodrama

Melodrama by Lorde is the follow-up to the incredibly successful Pure Herione. Her debut was a suprisingly assured effort given that she was only 16. Now at the ripe old age of 20, Melodrama comes with a weight of expectation, but nothing that the girl, who was once described by David Bowie as being the future of music, can’t handle. Limited, deluxe edition translucent royal blue vinyl LP housed in a gatefold sleeve with six inserts and lyric booklet or 140g black vinyl LP in single sleeve with insert on Universal.

As a celebration of Pulp's salt-of-the-earth DIY pop, the 1994 released hit record 'His 'n' Hers' is re-issued with extra audio quality. As the band's fourth album, and one which will always be remembered as their breakthrough, sexual encounters, social class and voyeurism are all covered with a heavy dose of Jarvis Cocker's dry wit.

Easy Life
See You Later Maybe Never (Demos)

Leicester alternative R&B group Easy Life haven’t let ‘Lockdown 2020’ stop them from making new music. See You Later Maybe Never features two new songs, Peanut Butter and Petty Crime. With their positive outlook they are probably the right band to be releasing new music inspired by the situation caused by the global pandemic.

ANOHNI
It's All Over Now, Baby Blue / Be My Husband

Marking her first new music since her charity single ‘Karma’ last year, ANOHNI releases two new cover versions on 7” single via Secretly Canadian. On the first side is a take on Bob Dylan’s ‘It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue’, recorded a few years ago, and a newer cover of Nina Simone’s ‘Be My Husband’ on the reverse.

Maya Hawke
Blush

Recognisable from her star turns in the third season of ‘Stranger Things’ and in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Maya Hawke commenced her music career in 2019 with two well-received singles, ‘To Love A Boy’ and ‘Stay Open’. Continuing her partnership with songwriter Jesse Harris, her full-length debut album arrives, titled Blush. 

Video Age
Pleasure Line

Perhaps indicated by its availability on a more limited ‘purple royalty’ coloured vinyl, Video Age have been mining their classic Eighties pop influences even more thoroughly than ever before on third studio album Pleasure Line. Perhaps motivated by Ross Farbe and Ray Micarelli’s upcoming weddings, bright, optimistic pop melodies shine hard here. 

Liela Moss
Who The Power

Created and recorded during a time of personal and societal upheaval (new parenthood and lockdown respectively), Duke Spirit frontwoman Liela Moss delivers her second solo album Who The Power, more strident, dramatic and outward-looking than its intensely personal predecessor My Name Is Safe In Your Mouth. 

Washed Out
Purple Noon

Ernest Greene brings his Washed Out project back to Sub Pop for the project’s fourth studio album. On Purple Noon, the chillwave pioneer teams up once again with producer Ben H. Allen and ventures even further into hip-hop and R&B territory, with bright, sharply-defined sounds the order of the day. 

Michelle
Heatwave

Taking cues from R&B, Eighties synth pop, jazz and indie-rock, New York sextet MICHELLE present their debut studio album Heatwave. Written and recorded in just a fortnight and spearheaded by the fantastic, slinky lead single ‘The Bottom’, it’s a brief but thrilling snapshot of what it’s like to be young and getting by in a big city.

Blossoms
In Isolation / Live From The Plaza Theatre, Stockport

With the coronavirus preventing live shows from happening and Daniel Ek needing more product in order to pay bands half a penny for every thousand streams on Spotify then it's not surprising bands have been forced to put out hodge-podge collections to keep the coffers flowing, This interim release from Blossoms is half filled with covers and reworks recording in lockdown plus a live set recorded in their native Stockport.

Lotus Plaza
Spooky Action At A Distance

Slowly we unfurl, like Lotus Plaza. Lockett Pundt from Deerhunter is behind this project, and there’s certainly some overlap between the dreamy guitar-pop of ‘Spooky Action At A Distance’ and Pundt’s other band - not to mention Atlas Sound, the solo gamble of Pundt’s fellow Deerhunter(er) Bradford Cox. However, ‘Spooky Action At A Distance’ also leans more heavily into the classic shoegaze modes of Ride than any of Deerhunter’s records do.

The Magnetic Fields
Quickies

Stephin Merritt’s The Magnetic Fields has always been a project upon which to launch a good concept, and Quickies is no different. Consisting entirely of short, simple and sub-three-minute songs, it’s a 28-track collection which will be released physically over five 7” vinyls, available together as a box set. 

Kate Bush
Hounds Of Love

Hounds Of Love is one of those LPs that you can end up skipping over because you feel like you already know it too well. In particular ‘Running Up That Hill’, ‘Cloudbusting’ and the title track are all old friends at this point. But here’s the thing - as frequently as you might hear its famous singles (or their famous covers), as often as it might crop up in retrospective lists and talking heads documentaries, Kate Bush's fifth studio album will never get old. It's just too good.

Yves Tumor
Heaven To A Tortured Mind

Heaven To A Tortured Mind is the fourth album by Yves Tumor, aka American experimental electronic producer, Sean Bowie (no relation). It is the follow-up to his critically lauded album from 2018, Safe In The Hands of Love, which was his debut for Warp. They thought it was so good that they’d let him make another, and we're delighted. I think It’s worth noting that he has also performed under the name Yvsie Ray Vaughan.

Taylor Swift
folklore

Recorded under lockdown as a relatively quick follow-up to her last album Lover 11 months ago, Taylor Swift’s folklore dropped without fanfare at the end of July. Featuring production assistance from Jack Antonoff and The National’s Aaron Dessner, it’s been hailed as the most lyrically vivid and sonically diverse album of Swift’s career, and it now gets a physical release on CD and vinyl. 

Fiskur
Cold Hands, Burn Slow

Fiskur is Ross Clark from Glasgow. He makes what he calls ‘future music’. We will call it great Caledonian bedroom pop songs with great hooks, which seem to have the great musical traditions of his city in their make up. Cold Hands, Burn Slow is the album you won’t regret buying. Earworms aplenty.

Little Dragon

Dip In The Pool
On Retinae

On Retinae is a bright and pleasing slice of Japanese pop music recorded in the heart of the 1980’s. The track, the work of Dip In The Pool, glides forwards on a stately melody line for plucked synth lines, delicate vocals and unexpected (but thoroughly welcome) clarinet completing the picture. The entrancing tune is present here in two different versions. On Music From Memory.

Cornershop
England Is A Garden

In calling out Morrissey for racism waaay before it become blindingly obvious he had some pretty unsavoury views, being a multi-ethnic indie band in the white boy dominated '90s, having an actual number one hit with Brimful of Asha, Cornershop have already done it all. Yet 30 years after forming, they still have a commitment to the cause with the release of their ninth studio album England is a Garden. Expect the usual splicing of styles including disco, funk, Indian raga and glam rock. 

Sevdaliza
Shabrang

Dutch-Iranian singer Sevda Alizadeh reveals her anticipated second full-length Sevdaliza album Shabrang, released later this year.

Solange
A Seat At The Table

Solange Knowles’ A Seat at the Table is one not to sleep on for any fans of neo-soul, funk and R&B. Directing an all-star ensemble of contributors including Raphael Saadiq and Sampha, Solange truly realises her vision of an album that explores black womanhood through a self-directed, empowering and contemporary lens.

LCD Soundsystem
This Is Happening

Here we have ‘This Is Happening’, the last LCD Soundsystem album that wasn’t actually the last LCD Soundsystem album. Whether you feel duped by the band's reunion is now a moot point. Anyway back in 2010 James Murphy bestowed upon us an album that took his über-aware dance-punk schtick to new heights. You know how it is - Talking Heads, ‘Dance Yrself Clean’, Madison Square Garden. The whole nine yards.

Nadine Shah
Kitchen Sink

Kitchen Sink is the fourth album from critically acclaimed singer / songwriter Nadine Shah. It is the follow-up to her Mercury Music Prize nominated album Holiday Destination. The album contains her usual brave approach to songwriting and unflinching social commentary, but is tempered, this time, with a certain playfulness. Ben Hillier is in the producer’s chair once again.

David Bowie
The Man Who Sold The World

Parlophone remastered and reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these versions are being released individually too.

Nilüfer Yanya
Miss Universe

Bold and bright modern pop from Nilufer Yanya, bursting out of your stereo in the form of debut full-length album Miss Universe. The confidence of that title is all over the album’s sound, which combines soul and electronica details with gnarly guitar, helmed by Yanya’s big vocals. It's good folks. On ATO Records.

Dizzy
The Sun and Her Scorch

The Sun and Her Scorch is the second album by Canadian indie-pop band, Dizzy. Now, their name suggests indie pop, and they are marketed as such, but their sound here is what you could describe as expensively produced stadium indie pop. This just means that they’re not a bunch of skinny kids from the ‘80s, with messy hair, wearing jumpers etc. This is a much slicker affair but the melodies are there in abundance.

Disclosure
Ecstasy

Popular electronic music duo Disclosure return with a new 5 track 12" which helps them celebrate 10 years in the biz despite them both still only being in their mid 20s. Lead track Ecstasy already sounds like a hit with its cut up disco and soul samples and thumping kick drums. The four other tracks here have been teased already on various mainstream media so this should be another big seller for the lads.

Goliath

Peel Dream Magazine
Agitprop Alterna

Motorik beats, melodic and discordant. Agitprop Alterna is the second album album from Peel Dream Magazine. I can only say that it must be good because the loose collective, helmed by New York musician Joe Stevens, have been likened to Yo La Tengo, My Bloody Valentine, Stereolab and Sarah Records bands. How very exciting!

Teenage Fanclub
Man-Made

Further re-issues of Teenage Fanclub's later, slightly lesser known works. Man-Made was originally released in 2005 (how time flies) and once again showcases their mellow, gently maturing brand of jangle pop and classic rock. They travelled from their native Scotland to Chicago to record this with Tortoise's John McEntire who adds subtle shades and textures to their loveable comfy jumper form of guitar music. This re-issues comes with a bonus 7" of rare tracks.

AKSK
Things We Do

You may AKSK the question who are AKSK? Well they are a collaborative effort between Adda Kaleh and Suzanne Kraft who have been working on this project for over seven years.

Orla Gartland
Why Is Freckle Season Like This?

Consisting of her EPs Why Am I Like This? and Freckle Season, it also includes an acoustic version of stand-alone single ‘Figure It Out’ and exclusive new song ‘Don’t Fall In Love With A Musician’, it’s a brilliant showcase for newcomers to her brand of existential pop.

This twentieth anniversary reissue includes the remastered album plus a round-up of all the contemporary B-sides. Also (for the CD edition) a second disc, containing a sackful of previously unreleased material.

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 sophisticated production.

Caravan Château

Los Angeles-based artist Alex Izenberg returns after a four-year pause following his debut studio album Harlequin. On Caravan Château, the enigmatic artist worked with Chris Taylor (of Grizzly Bear) and Jonathan Rado (Foxygen / Whitney / Lemon Twigs) to deliver a suite of sharply-defined yet cryptic songs. 

Cigarettes After Sex
Crush

Here they are, the worst named band in the entire universe but one which has a rather palatable sound which will appeal to fans of Mazzy Star, Low and Galaxie 500. Here is a one off single following on from their much loved debut album with two tracks which have yet to see the light of day. Let's forget smoking after intercourse and just swoon to the sounds.

Here Comes The Wave

Ooh a Family Selection Box and it's not even Christmas. This box contains a gaggle of filmmakers turned musicians from Sheffield who seem to be worried about everything from their cat going missing to the state of the world. They may be in a constant state of anxiety but they balance this with creating upbeat 6 Music approved pop tunes that are reminiscent of both Lou Reed and Metronomy.

unhappybirthday
Mondchateau

Relaxed, sunny grooves are the order of the day on Mondchateau, the fourth studio album overall from German outfit unhappybirthday. Altered slightly in tone from the hazy dream-pop of their last outing Schaum, it’s yet more evidence that their recent alliance with producer Jonas Meyer is paying off dividends creatively.
