Georgia
Seeking Thrills

Georgia Barnes, better known simply as Georgia caused a stir back in 2015 with her self-titled debut. Seeking Thrills is her latest album, a dancefloor focused album that aims to kick off 2020 with some pop-punch. If you’ve heard her recent single, About Work The Dancefloor (included here), it gives you a good idea of the vibe on this album. Also includes the single, Never Let You Go.

Pizzagirl
first timer

Check out that cover artwork. Dreamboat alert! And what’s more, pizzagirl has the tunes to back up his dashing good looks. On debut LP first timer the Liverpool-based singer-songwriter serves up some digitised indie-pop full of melody and verve. Opener ‘ball’s gonna keep on rollin’’ draws heavily on Pet Shop Boys while there’s a bit of OK Go to cuts like ‘body biology’.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Blue Hawaii
Open Reduction Internal Fixation

Naming their fourth record after the kind of surgery required when Agor badly injured his heel on tour, Open Reduction Internal Fixation sees Blue Hawaii in great form, spanning house, garage and electronica. Bandmate Ra went through her own emotional damage with the disintegration of a long-term relationship, making the new record a bold and cathartic one. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

SPINN
SPINN

Lovely bit of indie jangle from newcomers SPINN here. This lot hail from Liverpool, and there’s certainly a fair bit of the city’s native sound to their eponymous debut LP. The Coral, A Flock Of Seagulls, Echo & The Bunnymen and The La’s can all be traced in SPINN's chest-swelling, slightly wistful pop tunes. Charming record.

Lealani
Fantastic Planet

With a unique vocal style and a lovely, modern take on classic cold-wave and synth-pop, Lealani is a tantalising prospect. Originally released on a limited tape run, her album 'Fantastic Planet' is being re-issued on red vinyl. Off the back of performances at Coachella as well as scheduled shows at the 100 Club in London and various UK venues, you should be seeing a lot more of Lealani...

Snow Patrol
Reworked

Snow Patrol Reworked features 16 of the band’s songs that they have reworked in some way. It’s not clear yet how they have been reworked, so could you could be hearing Run in an rib-cracking techno style, Chasing Cars in the style of Napalm Death, Chocolate à la Daniel O'Donnell. We’ll see, but my suggestions are likely to be wide of the mark to be honest.

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.

Robyn
Honey

Robyn started her music career over twenty years ago with throwaway pop songs, working with the likes of pop supremo Max Martin (Backstreet Boys, Westlife - urrrgggh, two of the greatest artists of all time!). She has really come into her own since those days though. With credible pop classics like Dancing On My Own she balanced dancefloor hit with heartbreaking lyrics. She continues this artistically successful formula with her new album, Honey. LP on Island.
  • Genre(s):

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.

Prince
Sign 'O' The Times

Look people, this is literally Sign ‘O’ The Times by Prince. Arguably this is the purple one at the very peak of his hit-making powers. This Warner Bros reissue doesn’t appear to be remastered, and doesn’t come with a brace of demos / live tracks / whatever. It just makes an über-classic album available on wax again. Double LP.

Prince and the Revolution
Purple Rain (2015 Paisley Park Remaster)

Seriously exciting stuff here for Prince fans: as well as a remastered version of the deeply classic album Purple Rain, the CD versions of this reissue also include a whole disc of contemporary tracks from the great one’s immense and closely guarded archives, which haven’t even been bootlegged before! Revel in the rarities. On Warner Bros.

Georgia
About Work The Dancefloor

About Work The Dancefloor by Georgia is euphoric electro-pop that defines the ecstacy of dancing the night, and the early morning, away. It mirrors Georgia’s own experiences with club culture and showcases her ability to blend her influences into a concise dancefloor banger. Includes a remix by The Black Madonna. On Domino.

Squid
Town Centre

Squid came to being when the members all converged on Brighton. The young five-piece now base themselves in London. Their brand of post-punk and disco-funk is getting tongues wagging in the biz. They’re a typically wacky bunch who cite Captain Beefheart and pickle among things they like. Their latest EP, Town Centre is produced by Dan Carey and will be released on his Speedy Wunderground label. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Gruff Rhys
Pang!

The sixth solo album from Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys is typically internationalist in its outlook. Recorded and produced between Cardiff and Johannesburg, Pang! is a Welsh language album with some Zulu lyrics, put together with the help of South African electronica musician Muzi. Rhys has recorded a welter of sonically diverse solo works, so expect Pang! to be completely different once again.

Efterklang
Altid Sammen

Danish 4AD signees Efterklang are known for their pop experimentation, flirting with a range of genres including post-rock, indie pop, electronic music and art pop. On ‘Altid Sammen’, their first proper studio album in 7 years, they add baroque instrumentation to their rich musical tapestry. ‘Altid Sammen’ is a record which focuses on themes of togetherness, searching for meaning in nature, death, the afterlife, friendships and the bonds we create with others.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Thousand Knives Of

A timely re-issue of the first solo album from the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto. 'Thousand Knives Of' was originally released back in 1978, when Sakamoto was still in the equally groundbreaking Yellow Magic Orchestra, and established a blueprint for both artists going forward. Notably, this is the first time that the record is being released on vinyl outside of Japan. 

Mauno
Really Well

Canadian four-piece Mauno present their second studio effort proper, following 2017’s exciting Tuning. Rather than marrying themselves to an overarching concept, Really Well sees them play freer and looser than before, with singer Eliza Niemi’s excellent voice providing the main draw once again. 

Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures
Tequila Island

Stanley Brinks and The Wave Pictures don’t seem to be able to stay out of their respective recording studios, so why shouldn’t they collaborate, eh? In fact, Tequila Island is their fifth album together. Working alone, the two acts are incredibly prolific, releasing 12 albums between them since they last collaborated in 2015. If you’re a fan of both you’ll either be delighted that there’s some new stuff or annoyed they’re making you spend more money. New records are always nice, though, aren’t they?

CHAI
PUNK

After PINK we have PUNK. The sophomore LP from the much-hyped Japanese group Chai finds them once more wringing musical gold from their ‘neo-Kawaii’ aesthetic. That means that here we have a selection of whip-smart, ebullient funk-punk jams which challenge conventions of beauty and cuteness. Think Liquid Liquid, Gang Gang Dance and Le Tigre all getting together and having a bloody great time. Really good.

Alice Boman
Dream On

Following a couple of acclaimed EPs that now date from more than half a decade ago, 'Dream On' is the long-awaited debut album from Swedish singer-songwriter Alice Boman. Her music has also recently been on ‘13 Reasons Why’ and ‘Wanderlust’, but 'Dream On' opens up a new avenue of collaboration, mainly with producer Patrik Berger.

Mazzy Star
So Tonight That I Might See

This is a much needed re-issue of the second album from David Roback and Hope Sandoval's dream pop/slowcore band. Originally released in 1993 this contained their superhit 'Fade Into You' which peaked at no 44 in the hot 100. One of those albums that gained momentum this is a fine addition to their small but perfectly formed set of records,    
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Everything But The Girl
Amplified Heart

Amplified Heart, from 1994, was the eighth album by Everything But The Girl. It contained the original version of Missing, before it was given the Todd Terry treatment and subsequently became a gigantic hit. Tracey Thorn believes this to be the album that reignited the duo’s inspiration and verve.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

LCD Soundsystem
Sound Of Silver

Some say James Murphy gave up comedy when he turned down a chance to be a scriptwriter on Seinfeld...but then he formed LCD Soundsystem. Boom and indeed boom. Sound of Silver was the second time he merged bits of the Fall, Suicide, Talking Heads and other bits of music he's heard into sleek dance rock. Less of a novelty perhaps than their debut it turned LCD Soundsystem into a danceable juggernaut getting critical acclaim everywhere including being named as the second best album of the year by Pitchfork.

Field Music
Making A New World

New album from Sunderland area clever clogs Field Music. But it's not just any old new album this is a song cycle based on the first world war. The idea started from a project they were working on with the Imperial War Museum about US War Department publications but grew as the brothers wrote pieces about various elements of the aftermath of the war such as skin grafting, the dada movement and office work. They aren't just any ordinary band are they? 

Peter Ivers
Becoming Peter Ivers

Peter Ivers is one of those people who everybody in the world of music seemed to know, but he was virtually unknown to the general public. A songwriter whose principal instrument was the harmonica, he was described by Muddy Waters as the greatest harp player alive. He’s opened for the New York Dolls, John Cale and Fleetwood Mac. 'Becoming Peter Ivers' is a compilation of his work, lovingly compiled by RVNG Intl. Ivers was, tragically, the victim of a violent murder in 1983. The case, sadly, remains unsolved.

Pulp
His 'n' Hers

Gangly proto-Brit-poppers Pulp had been lurching around the scene for quite some time when they released 'His 'n' Hers'. Thankfully the album finally rid them of the tag of 'nearly people' that had been following them around and they finally found some crossover success. Tracks like 'Do You Remember the First Time?' and 'Lipgloss' set the scene for what would come next... the number one smash 'Different Class'. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Belle and Sebastian
If You're Feeling Sinister

This, I guess, was Belle and Sebastian's "breakthrough" album. The debut was so limited at the time that in those pre-internet days it took until the release of this before many people caught on. It's one of their most consistent albums with some right crackin' tunes as they say especially stuff like 'Mayfly' which showed they could provide some kind of cheerier version of Nick Drake.  This album, alonside all their others is being re-issued to celebrate a brand new album, on its way soon. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Billie Eilish
WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?

The precocious Billie Eilish drops her debut LP. WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? - no need to shout, Billie - is a family affair, with Eilish’s brother Finneas O’Connor co-producing the record. Music-wise the songs here lean into Lana Del Rey’s dark-Disney Americana while also incorporating EDM and Adele-ish balladry.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Keane
Cause and Effect

After Roy Keane and perhaps Robbie Keane, post-Coldplay soft-rockers Keane are the third-most-famous of the Keane-clan. We imagine a hewn-from-granite hardman like Roy is positively revolted by the fact that he shares a name with this bunch of Snow Patrolers, but maybe he’s got used to them by now. Or maybe he simply gives them not a second's thought. Anyway, on Cause And Effect - the band’s fifth LP and first for seven years - we find them up to their usual tricks. Expect to hear lead single ‘The Way I Feel’ during TV coverage of football tournaments for the next few years.

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Stereo Total
Yéyé Existentialiste

Stereo Total have been around for 20 years apparently and here they have a well deserved best-of compilation, Yéyé Existentialiste, taking form as a double vinyl LP. The Stereo Total sound is generally joyous French pop which whistles along at a pace and has an air of chic that can only be achieved from a French female vocalist. However they bridge many genres along the way, from indie to electro to New Wave and the 28 tracks on this compilation reflect their diversity.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

BABii
HiiDE

Described as sounding like literally everything all the way from Grimes to fka Twigs this is the debut album from producer BABii (pronounced...um... Babii) and it's produced by none other than Sir Adrian Sherwood (On-U-Sound System). Expect hook laden electronica with dark industrial undercurrents and if you are very quick there'll be a super duper Dinked version. On Death Waltz Originals. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Amy O
Shell

Amy O AKA Amy Oelsner hails from Bloomington, Indiana and makes indie pop records. Her music recalls sounds from the 90s as well as a romanticism for the 50s. The Amy O project started way back in 2005 as a solo project but has since blossomed into a three-piece band with Justin and Nathan Volmar on bass and drums respectively. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

M83
DSVII

If you’re a big M83 (aka Anthony Gonzalez)  fan, as I’m sure lots of you are, you’ll be aware of his 2007 album, Digital Shades Vol. 1, which contained some Eno influenced ambient outtakes that couldn't find a place on any of his albums. 12 years have passed and M83 has amassed  enough material for a second helping, DSVII. This time there’s an ‘80s sci-fi element to the music. Eno is still clearly an influence but there’s evidence he’s been listening to Mort Garson, John Carpenter and Suzanne Ciani, too.
  • Artist(s):
  • M83

Cones
Pictures of Pictures

Cones co-founders Jonathan and Michael Rosen spent their childhood eating cereal and banging along homemade drums to the Bee Gees. Interesting stuff from the press release but crucially it omits to tell us which cereal. Their close upbringing has spread into adulthood with the duo finally releasing their debut LP of lush orchestrated pop inspired by the classic artists of yesterday. I think this is *cone* to be special......... 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

The Juan Maclean
The Brighter The Light

Unfairly overlooked in his Noughties heyday, Juan MacLean returns with the first album under his eponymous electronica project the Juan MacLean in half a decade. His long friendship with one James Murphy probably tells you enough about what it sounds like. Contains the single ‘Zone Non Linear’, and is released by the legendary DFA imprint.

The Wannadies
Be A Girl

Ah 25 years ago we were singing "You And Me Always...And Forever!" at the top of our lungs. These Swedish rockers certainly hit pay dirt with that song but the album it came from is no slouch either. 'Be A Girl' was obviously the biggest album of their career but it's no one hit wonder. Their catchy and vibrant guitar pop was perfect for the Brit-Pop era....and for looking back at your youth.

Kate Bush
The Sensual World

She’s not wrong, y’know - it really is a Sensual World that we live in. Kate Bush had a tough task following up Hounds Of Love (who wouldn’t?), but with her sixth studio LP she passed the test with ease. The Sensual World is a quixotic art-pop masterpiece from the artist who wrote the book on such things. Finishes with ‘This Woman’s Work’. Originally released as the ‘80s drew to a close, this new edition has been given a remastering job by Parlophone.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Kate Bush
The Kick Inside

(8) Bad dreams in the night Would they ever reissue The Kick Inside? Now we have a remastered, remastered, Remastered version,   Kate Bush! It’s she, it’s Katy, She’s come home! Yes we, Norman Records™, Let her in at our window.   Ooh it gets dark, it gets lonely, At the Norman warehouse... (8)

Connan Mockasin & Dev Hynes
Myths 001

Myths 001 is a collaboration by two artists known for their leftfield take on indie-pop. Connan Mockasin and Dev Hynes (Test Icicles, Lightspeed Champion, Blood Orange) bring underwater, breathy, and sparse, heartbreaking qualities to twisted indie-funk and post-punk on a 12” that was written and recorded as part of the Marfa Myths Festival in Texas.

This Is The Kit
Krulle Bol

This bloody well Is The Kit you know, so you’d better pay attention - we’re only going to go through this once. Krülle Bol is the debut LP from Kate Stables’ project. It was originally released as a limited run in 2007, Disco-Ordination have now snapped up Krülle Bol for a second pressing. The dozen tracks here flit between gutsy folk and spare, shimmering rock, all of which gives the album a bit of a Beans On Toast vibe. Got that?

Depression Cherry

Depression Cherry is Beach House’s fifth album and they return to a more simple, melodic feel while continuing to change their sound as they go. Subtracted down to fewer instruments, Beach House keep their dreamy, otherworldly, dream-pop feeling as they pick you up and gently carry you away. Available as a CD, Vinyl and CD or a limited white vinyl LP.

Moloko
Things To Make And Do

Things To Make And Do was the third album by Sheffield-based trip-hop / electronica band, Moloko. It saw the duo of Roisin Murphy and Mark Brydon using more live instrumentation than on their previous two albums. It contained their biggest hit The Time is Now and saw their popularity grow substantially following the success of Sing It Back from its predecessor, I Am Not A Doctor.

Clairo
Immunity

A couple of years ago, Clairo announced herself with the home-recorded track, Pretty Girl. Since the song’s massive success, she has purposely faded from view to concentrate on making music that will stand the test of time. Her album,  Immunity, is the result. It was co-produced with Rostrum Batmanglij, formerly of Vampire Weekend.

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 Universal are bringing it back on suitably heavyweight vinyl.

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 bloody marvelous.
  • Label(s):
  • EMI

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.

Stone Irr
Performance

Warm and careworn indie from this Los Angeles by way of Indiana native. The move to the coast (doesn't everyone?) has spurred on a more 60s West Coast sound enlightening the previous understated songwriting. The press release compares this to so many artists that it's hard to know where Stone Irr are actually coming from but with Thom Yorke and Sufjan Stevens in the melting point this gives us a good idea of where this is headed.

sir Was
Holding On To A Dream

Joel Wästberg, best known under his stage name sir Was, is mixing up pop, soul and hip-hop once again for his latest studio effort Holding On To a Dream. Consciously going lo-fi for an authentic vinyl sound, the new album includes a sparkling collaboration with Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, titled ‘Deployed’.

Dip
Ḣ-Camp Meets Lo-Fi

20th anniversary reissue of H-camp Meets Lo-fi by Dip. Dip were late film composer Johann Johannsson and former Sugar Cubes drummer Sigtryggur Baldursson. The album takes inspiration from the music of ‘60s Italian horror films and adds a bit of synth to create an experimental album on the edges of pop. A bunch of emerging Iclandic guest stars were invited to sing on the album, including Jonsi from Sigur Ros, Emiliana Torrini, Magga Stina, Sara Marti and Asgerdur Juniusdottir.

Geneva
Further

Remember Geneva? They were Aberdeen’s answer to Radiohead and released their debut album, Further, in 1997 which reached the heady-heights of the Top 20. They fell foul of their label, Nude, collapsing and split up. They have now reformed to remind you of what could have been. Further, originally released in 1997, is reissued with extra tracks through One Little Indian.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Geneva
Weather Underground

Aberdeen’s contribution to Britpop came in the guise of Geneva. They were labelmates of Suede on Nude, racked up a handful of Top 40 hits and a Top 20 album with their debut album, Further. The band split when Nude folded. Now they have reformed, second album Weather Underground is reissued through One Little Indian. This should go down well as it balances the jangle-pop of songs like Dollars In The Heavens with the Radiohead-ness of songs like Museum Mile.

Manuela
Manuela

Vocalist Manuela Gernedel teams up with ex-Franz Ferdinand guitarist Nick McCarthy for a self titled full length of gentle, left-of-centre pop songs. Enlisting the help of some guest appearances from members of The Mystery Jets, Django Django, and Veronica Falls. Catchy and sublime. On vinyl from Lost Map.

Blood Orange
Angel's Pulse

Oh hear he is again. He gets where water won't....and stop sprawling on the sleeve. Sit up straight man. Maybe he has good reason to be tired as this mixtape release comes just months after his previous album proper Negro Swan. So it's being marketed as a mixtape rather than an album which seems to mean that it is an addendum of sorts to his last record - a series of sketches and ideas made in the months since. There's guests such as Toro Y Moi and Porches helping out.

Eartheater
Metalepsis

Alexandra Drewchin’s Eartheater project continues to go from strength to strength, but it’s her 2015 debut album Metalepsis that gets a re-issue treatment courtesy of Hausu Mountain. Four years later, it’s still striking, like a seriously avant-garde take on the bucolic work of Seventies English folk artists.

Gorillaz
Demon Days

Time for a picture disc edition of Gorillaz second album Demon Days. The 'virtual band' had long been known as yet another outlet for the multifarious musical experiments of Damon Albarn but their self titled debut captured the publics imagination in a way a straightforward solo album might not have done. Here it was time to up the guests and the likes of De La Soul, Roots Manuva, Neneh Cherry all made contributions. Being an Albarn project a community choir also made its regulatory appearance.

Plastic Beach was the third album by Damon Albarn's virtual multimedia project Gorillaz and like its predecessor Demon Days it is guest strewn with artists as disparate as Mark E Smith, Snoop Dog, Lou Reed and Gruff Rhys appearing as the inevitable Womack (Bobby). It's a concept album about waste and the environment that also manages to be insanely catchy and danceable. He's an annoyingly talented git that Albarn.

Tony Njoku
Your Psyche's Rainbow Panorama

Your Psyche's Rainbow Panorama by Tony Njoko was inspired by a 150 metre long glass walkway in the Danish city of Aarhus. The walkway was the work of Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson entitled Your Rainbow Panorama. It was the size of the project that inspired Njoku to make this visceral avant-pop version of what he saw, reflect different human emotions in each track.

That’s My Ego shows Faux Pas maturing as songwriters as they discuss the pursuit of perfection, whilst Big Cat sees Uncle Buzzard’s shimmering sound shrouding some heavy subject matter.

Different Class

Following the recent renewal of interest in Britpop comes the reissue of Pulp's widely revered 1995 LP 'Different Class'.

Alluding to society and the British class system, 'Different Class' was definitely of its time, but still resonates today.

Larry Gus
Subservient

Subservient is the fourth release for DFA by Larry Gus AKA Panagiotis Melidis. He sings in Greek and English over a mix of pop-oriented funk and Mediterranean rhythms. The album’s theme centres on how to balance family life with his artistic leanings, and really just how to survive when the world is seeming like everything is going wrong.

Halsey
Manic

So what has happened to her eye then? Looks a right mess. Halsey is a pretty big name then isn't she? People have streamed her music billions of times, she's been on the cover of things, got GRAMMY nominations and all sorts. This, her second album, sounds like a mellow Kate Perry to me but I'm sure the younger members of our office will tell me she's a brilliant subversive pop artist that I'm too old and jaded to enjoy.

The 1975
Notes On A Conditional Form

I’m sure there’s a tingle of anticipation for a new album by The 1975. This one is called Notes On A Conditional Form. The band have been making headlines for their support of environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg as much as they have for their music. With their care for the environment in mind, they have chosen not to shrink wrap the CDs and LPs. Good on ‘em.

Psychemagik
I Feel How This Night Should Look

Psychemagik have existed for some time now and have mostly been known for remixing some pretty big names including Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher and Metronomy. They have been stewing over this album for some time now recording bits of this here and there inviting a slew of guests along for the ride. The result is a diverse and well crafted collection where categorisation is difficult with nods to acid, dance, soft rock, jazz and balearic music all combining to make an eclectic whole.

Moloko
Do You Like My Tight Sweater?

One of the most quietly inventive British-based bands of the late Nineties, Moloko spanned electronica, jazz, soul and house on their 1995 debut album 'Do You Like My Tight Sweater?' - named for singer Roisin Murphy’s (now of a solo career) chat-up line to future bandmate Mark Brydon at a party when they first met.

The Boo Radleys
Wake Up!

Released in 1995, Wake Up! was a watershed moment for The Boo Radleys, who were quietly one of the most innovative bands of the Britpop era. Housing the eternal radio hit ‘Wake Up Boo!’, a Top 10 hit, the album itself topped the British charts, powered by bold, brash choruses and pop-based optimism driving out the darkness and doubt of their previous records.

Marc Almond
Stardom Road

Special gold-coloured vinyl re-issue of Stardom Road, the 13th solo album from former Soft Cell frontman Marc Almond. Having not released a record in four years through recovery from a near-fatal road accident, this collection of covers - ranging from Bowie to Andy Williams - plus one original saw him revive his career.

Twins
New Cold Dream

Twins is the new project by Atlanta-based musician Matt Weiner. He takes influences for the project from the likes of John Maus, Bauhaus, Suicide and Depeche Mode among others. Using this inspiration he has crafted New Cold Dream, a dark electro, synth pop and IDM album that mixes worries of our uncertain times with reason for optimism.

Yukihiro Takahashi
Saravah!

Just before he properly got going with Japanese electronic innovators Yellow Magic Orchestra in 1978, Yukihiro Takahashi, released a solo album, Saravah! It is an album central to Japanese music of the ‘70s. It is a mix of disco Funk, synth Pop, ambient, French exotica and bossa nova, and as you can probably tell from the album cover, it’s pretty slick.

Alex Cameron
Miami Memory

Step aside dad rock, Alex Cameron's here and he's got something called stepdad rock in the shape of Miami Memory. It's hard to know exactly what that means but part of it seems to be about looking out rather than in. Musically we've got overwrought and emotional anthems with a bit of saxophone and church organ for good measure.

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.

Solange
When I Get Home

Earning rave reviews upon its surprise release back in January, Solange’s second studio album When I Get Home at last gets a proper vinyl edition, arriving on a special clear LP. Including insightful highlights like ‘Almeda’, Solange can now surely do no more to shake off the insulting tag of merely being Beyonce’s sister.

Prince
Emancipation

Emancipation was the Prince album that saw him wriggle free of his contract with Warner Bros and he subsequently declared it to be his most important album yet. The freedom let Prince experiment freely with an assortment of genres including house music and blues and even toying with a cover of Joan Osbourne's 'One of Us'. This is its first time on vinyl and it comes in a six LP set on purple (natch) vinyl or easier to handle 3CD set.

Kele
2042

After the acoustic diversion of his last album, 2017’s Fatherland, Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke tacks back to the dancefloor template that informed his previous solo records. 2042, led by the socially and politically aware lead single ‘Jungle Bunny’, is also more like a Bloc Party record than any of his solo material, most similar to the difficult but rewarding A Weekend In The City.

White Lies
To Lose My Life (10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

We all remember when we were when White Lies released To Lose My Life don't we. Don't we?? Well September 2009 should be indelibly stamped on your brain as the month their debut was unleashed and incredibly went straight to the very top of the UK album chart. Well blow me down with a feather. It managed to score 58 on Metacritic and was described by the Guardian as "promising, if unremarkable" so it's high time we got a tenth anniversary re-issue which thrillingly contains demo and live tracks discovered in bassist Charles Cave's personal cupboard.  

Metronomy
Metronomy Forever

Where has Metronomy’s Joseph Mount been since 2016’s Summer 08 album? Well, he’s been hanging out with Robyn and contributing to her album, Honey. He’s back on home turf now though with another Metronomy album called Metronomy Forever. Working with Robyn and moving from Paris back to England to live on a hill have informed and inspired the new set of songs.

Madonna
True Blue

With her status firmly cemented as a global superstar, Madonna released True Blue in 1986. It was the follow-up to Like A Virgin and showed the singer displaying a wider variety of musical styles. It contained the hits True Blue, La Isla Bonita and the massive hit Papa Don’t Preach. It’s getting a spiffy reissue on crystal clear vinyl.

Madonna
Madonna

So we sell Madonna records now? Yup you read that right. Here is a limited edition clear vinyl edition of her debut album from 1983. It contains a host of predominately self-penned songs several of which would become hits (Borderline, Holiday, Lucky Star) and its feathery dance-pop aesthetic gave a boost to the dance world just as disco had faded from view. She'd go on to have much greater success but Madonna was where it all started for the lady they now call 'The Queen of Pop'.

Madonna
Who's That Girl (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Madonna was no stranger to acting in 1987 when she starred in Who’s That Girl alongside Griffin Dunne. It was her 5th role. She also performed most of the soundtrack, which just happens to be getting a gleaming reissue on crystal clear vinyl. I say she performed most of the soundtrack as it also includes songs by Scritti Politti, Duncan Faure, Club Nouveau and Michael Davidson.

Madonna
Like A Virgin

Like A Virgin was the second album by Madonna, released in 1984, it was the album that propelled her to global superstardom. It’s packed with hits such as the title track, Material Girl and Angel. A lesser known album fact about this album that will go down well today is that it was produced by Nile Rogers. Rogers also plays guitar on the album with his Chic bandmate, the late, great Bernard Edwards playing bass.

Guerrilla

Super Furry Animals third album Guerilla is 20 years old. To celebrate its birthday we have an expanded reissue of the original album which includes a huge 25 bonus tracks. This was the album with the singles Northern Lites and Fire In My Heart, the latter being the one of the band’s more tender moments.

Kazu
Adult Baby

Having made her name as the lead singer of indie-rock veterans Blonde Redhead, Adult Baby represents the first-ever solo album from Kazu Makino. Featuring contributions from some stellar names include Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, Son Lux’s Ian Chang and none other than the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto, the album is an opportunity for the star to reveal a new aspect of her personality. 

Cold War Kids
New Age Norms 1

New Age Norms 1 is the new album by Californian indie band Cold War Kids. It’s the band’s 7th album. They’ve come a long way since their second single “We Used To Vacation” hit the radio waves in 2006, cementing their place as a regular festival band with a loyal fan base prepared to part with their cash. One can only assume that this album is the start of some sort of series.

New Order
Power, Corruption & 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.

Björk
Greatest Hits

Have you ever listened to Bjork and thought 'this sounds interesting but her back catalogue is sprawling and daunting I just want to hear the best bits'? Well we have the answer in Bjork's Greatest Hits. being Bjork she couldn't just do things normally so asked her fanbase to pick their favourite tracks via an online poll. This is a blessing that means her dreadful It's Oh So Quiet debacle is thankfully missing. Also bear in mind that this was originally released in 2002 so you need to look elsewhere for anything after that. Still, a very useful intro.

Spinning Coin

Wee Scottish indie-pop sensations Spinning Coin return with their first new music since 2017s well regarded 'Permo' LP. Again being released by the Pastels Geographic imprint, this first taster has been co-produced by the Peter Pan of indie-pop himself Stephen Pastel. Surely one of the best of the new indie-pop lot this will appeal to fans of Teenage Fanclub, Orange Juice and Josef K.

Vampire Weekend
Vampire Weekend

When they first appeared in 2007 Vampire Weekend showed the sort of magpie-like approach to mixing bits of world music and western rock not seen since Paul Simon's 'Graceland'. Theirs is a preppy, clever-clogs sound with lyrics concerning architecture and bus routes. Not your standard indie rock fare then. The original press release sums them up quite accurately as Franz Ferdinand meets the Bhundu Boys.

Ezra Furman
Twelve Nudes

Ezra Furman, whilst always sounding like Ezra Furman, tends to dabble in different rock sub-genres. With new album Twelve Nudes, he claims it is a punk record. He hurt his throat through singing so hard whilst making it, so there is blood on the tracks here. It was recorded in Oakland, CA under the influence of booze and cigarettes. The title refers to the songs on the album being there with nothing to hide.

Belle and Sebastian
Days of the Bagnold Summer

Fiddly-diddly-dee, a new Belle And Sebastian LP. Days Of The Bagnold Summer might be an extremely Belle And Sebastian-type thing to call your record, but it’s actually not a title that the band came up with themselves. Rather, Days Of The Bagnold Summer is Simon Bird’s film of the same name (yes, him from The Inbetweeners), which is itself adapted from a graphic novel by Joff Winterhart. Bird wanted B&S’s 1996 tune ‘Get Me Away From Here I’m Dying’ for the movie, but the band went one better, re-recording both ‘Get Me Away…’ and ‘I Know Where The Summer Goes’ in addition to eleven new tunes.

Grouper
The Man Who Died In His Boat

Originally released in 2013, this album was recorded by Liz Harris alongside her best-known work, Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill. It’s in the same stylistic ballpark - ethereal, heavily reverbed electric guitar and vocals with dark and mysterious undercurrents, sometimes swimming into clearer focus when Harris switches to acoustic. Out of print for a while and now back on CD.

Jenny Hval
The Practice of Love

Musical witch lady Jenny Hval is back to cast her sonic hexes ‘pon us once more. Hval’s seventh LP The Practice Of Love is another fine work of modern-day Gothicism from the Norwegian artist, one in which she leans a little heavier into the pop stuff than she has done previously. Julee Cruise, Visions-era Grimes and Chromatics are the related artists you’re grappling with on The Practice Of Love.

Now they’re back with their highly anticipated sophomore album, Walking Like We Do. Their previous success shows here as they were shipped off to Atlanta to record with renowned US producer Ben Allen III. Expect big things from The Big Moon.

'Lookout Low' was recorded in rural Wales with esteemed rock producer Ethan Johns, who bottles the lightning of the quintet’s live performances and places it on record.

Bloc Party
Silent Alarm

It's hard to recall sometimes given their recent, flailing output but Bloc Party were quite the incendiary band back in the day. Their debut Silent Alarm showcased their tight, energetic sound which married propulsive indie-rock to danceable rhythms. A large slab of credit must go to drummer Matt Tong whose rampant playing propelled the songs along at breakneck speed. They never quite hit these dizzy heights again so if you only buy one Bloc Party LP make it this one.
