Mikaela Davis
Delivery

After self-releasing for a few years, New York harpist/pianist/singer/songwriter/general talent Mikaela Davis has been snapped up by Rounder Records. Delivery, her first LP for the esteemed Massachusetts imprint, is a collection that balances influences from AM rock, 80s pop and a little smidgen of folk. Remember that Tobias Jesso Jr. guy from a few years ago? Davis could be his sister.

RDTK (Ricardo Donoso & Thiago Kochenborger)
Human Resources

Denovali Records (Mouse On The Keys, worriedaboutsatan) present the latest LP from a duo who have actually been together for a good 15 years now. Human Resources is the product of Brazilian two-piece RDTK - made up of former Hospital/Digitalis signee Ricardo Donoso and bassist-for-hire Thiago Kochenborger - and it’s a nervous record for nervous times. Tracks like ‘Seal The Chamber’ and ‘Affective Forecasting’ have a sort of Depeche Mode meets Nine Inch Nails vibe to them. One for all you Doomsday preppers out there.

Keston Cobblers Club
Wildfire

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

Desire
Under Your Spell

As much as I enjoyed the film Drive, I'm not sure I can forgive the wave of bands flatly imitating its soundtrack that followed its release. That said, the film's own soundtrack still holds up. Under Your Spell by Desire was part of that soundtrack, and appears here with a number of other songs and alternate versions by the band.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Hilang Child
Years

Bella Union with another yet another record of big-room indie niceness here. This time the accused is Ed Ridman, also known as Hilang Child, and his debut LP Years. These are ten tracks of chest-puffed-out, angel-voiced electro-indie that references everyone from Wild Beasts to Death Cab To Cutie. Will sound great as you crack open your fourth can of craft cider during the late-afternoon slot at Latitude.

Underworld & Iggy Pop
Teatime Dub Encounters

Underworld & Iggy Pop originally began collaborating with a view to coming up with something for the Trainspotting II film. Makes sense, and when you think about about it Underworld and Iggy have a lot of complementary attributes. This makes Teatime Dub Encounters a better record than it should be. ‘Bells & Circles’ has an early LCD Soundsystem thing going on, finding the exact midpoint between ‘All My Friends’ and ‘Us Vs. Them’. The rest of the EP flits between this dancefloor sound and more cerebral ambience.

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 flowing way of making music that ensure that they blend disparate influences into a sound all their own.  

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

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

The Smittens
City Rock Dove

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

Zuzu
Made On Earth By Humans

Zuzu is a Liverpool-born singer and songwriter who moved to London to pursue her musical ambitions. It turns out she caused enough of a stir to be snapped up by Virgin/EMI. Her debut EP, Made On Earth By Humans shows her talent for sharp lyrics and writing a great hook. She has been likened to Haim and will also be touring in support of Courtney Barnett. 10” single on Virgin/EMI.

The Go! Team
Semicircle

Semicircle is the fifth album by The Go! Team. Their mission to bring joy to the world this time around took them ultimately to Detroit where the group’s mainstay and founder Ian Parton found The Detroit Youth Choir. The resulting album contains a bunch of uplifting tracks featuring a gang-style choir, a marching band and a few surprised from Parton’s box of tricks.

The Psychedelic Furs
Pretty In Pink

Limited pink vinyl reissue of the absolutely classic 80's anthem 'Pretty In Pink' as heard in the John Hughes Movie of the same name, release your inner Molly Ringwald with this lush gatefold double 7" complete with liner notes, colour inner sleeves and a photographic art postcard.     
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

James
Living In Extraordinary Times

I learnt my lesson when I called James 'serviceable' and therefore created a Twitter storm. I later apologised and called them 'functional' instead but were their fans happy? Well, no not really. So I will refrain from saying anything other than they are back with a new album influenced by Trump and all the things going wrong in the world.  

Lykke Li
so sad so sexy

Rarely has their been a more clear expression of intent as the title of Swedish pop musician Lykke Li's fourth album, so sad so sexy. She's let behind the cinematic ambition that defined her earlier work and moved onto a style more reminiscent of the RnB you'd find topping the charts. But yeah, sad and sexy for sure.

Phantastic Ferniture
Phantastic Ferniture

My instinct was to tell you that hey, Phantastic Ferniture isn't how you spell anything, but then I realised I should probably lighten up, 'cos this band make garage rock that's fun and unthinking. Counting Julia Jacklin among their numbers along with Elizabeth Hughes, Ryan K Brennan and Tom Stephens, they create work much different from their solo pet projects, going a bit harder and janglier in their quest for a good time.

ShadowParty
ShadowParty

Okay wow, so this is a collaboration between some of the newer members of DEVO and New Order. That's got to be good right! Right? Right?!? Lead single 'Celebrate' is a nice bit of anthemic stadium rock that'll do well one the festival circuit. ShadowParty is released on Mute.

Kyle Falconer
No Thankyou

As someone who proudly wears jeans for more than four days in a row I'd more or less forgotten The View. So imagine my surprise when reading through the press releases I find this, the debut from View frontman Kyle Falconer. No Thank You is all anthem rock and sweeping Boney M strings and apparently The View never broke up?

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 also adds in three rare cuts in digital format.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Blueboy
The Bank Of England

The Sarah revival continues with a re-issue of this the final record by 'second wave' Sarah records band Blueboy. The group are much loved for their literate and whip smart indie-pop and here create a beautiful work to rival the best releases on the label. First time on vinyl for this and remastered from the original tapes.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

The Shacks
The Shacks

While you may know The Shacks best down to The Shacks opener ‘This Strange Effect’ being used in an iPhone commercial, this young NYC duo have enough about them to suggest they’re more likely to hang around than previous Apple picks like Steriogram. Their self-titled debut record features some fine songwriting pitched somewhere between Ray Davies and Mazzy Star, and singer Shannon Wise has a great husky coo that recalls Jane Birkin. Originally released in 2016, this reissue on Big Crown comes with a couple of bonus tracks.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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 download code that includes some rare bonus tracks.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Le Tigre
Le Tigre

Le Tigre were a political pop trio led by chief Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Julie Ruin). Their eponymous debut was originally released in 1999 and is now reissued on vinyl. The fusion of politically charged feminism and angry pop has made this a classic. This album contains arguably their best moment with the opening track, Deceptacon.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Soft Riot
The Outsider In The Mirrors

Get yourself onto YouTube and search Soft Riot and album title in the search bar, and you'll find a genuine 'promotional film', not a trailer or an album sampler, but an actual promotional film. I can't decide if this is the future of music advertisement, or a whimsical attempt at selling music? Either way, The Outsider In The Mirrors is the latest release from Soft Riot and is available on vinyl LP, CD and Tape from Possession Records. (Seriously, search that promotional video, it's hilarious). 

Belle and Sebastian
Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant

'Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant' is the fourth record by twee/indie pop band Belle & Sebastian. It's notable for featuring lead vocals from artists other than Stuart Murdoch, something that was only occasionally incorporated on predecessor 'The Boy WIth The Arab Strap'. It brings in more orchestral elements, too, relying on a proper string section.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Shallows
Pale / House Of Love

Summer-ready indie rock from this band of Liverpool strummers who have been holed up in a studio for the past 12 months readying this, their debut single. Expect anthemic big rock with driving melodies and emotional vocals. Limited 7" on their own label. Produced by Dave Sanderson (65 Days of Static/Reverend and the Makers).

John Maus
Love Is Real

There is an alternate timeline in which John Maus, rather than Ariel Pink, was the one who collaborated with Madonna.* You only need to listen to Maus’ 2006 LP Love Is Real once to know that it would have been something worth hearing. The academic punk heartthrob is in majestic form here. Psychedelic minimal wave paeans like ‘Rights For Gays’ and ‘The Silent Chorus’ spiral ever-higher. *In this reality Maus divides his time between being a massive pop star and president of the U.S.A.. It’s a great timeline.

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 will need to leave those preconceptions at the door though, because what we have here is a full-on indie-dance record. Lightly funky in that sort of The Antlers/Reflektor-era Arcade Fire way, Lightlessness Is Nothing New is straight-up pop music.

The Apples In Stereo
Velocity Of Sound

'Velocity of Sound' was where the Apples in Stereo took all their Ramones and power pop influences and went full on buzzpop. The Georgian collective ramped up not only their amps but their songwriting chops too on an album jam packed with fun and fuzzy guitar miniatures. Insanely catchy power-pop that should really be seen as a classic of the genre.   

Happy Rhodes
Ectotrophia

Here's arty US pop singer Happy Rhodes. Ectotrophia is the first properly compiled anthology of her work. Her music blends classical influences, acoustic guitars, synths along with her remarkable and endearing four-octave range voice. It all came to life in upstate New York, away from the hustle and bustle, in the mid ‘80s when she was a mere teenager. Fans of Kate Bush may find much to like here. Double LP and CD on Numero Group.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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 and the then-recent poll tax riots, and imbued with a feminist perspective. 60s psych and garage rock influences are given free rein on the likes of Safesurfer and Drive, She Said, while Pristeen and Beautiful Love see Cope launching into pop with a renewed sense of idiosyncratic purpose.

Jamie Isaac
(04:30) Idler

Croydonian jazz-popper Jamie Isaac is ready with a second album proper in (4:30) Idler. This one is largely informed by the young fellow’s troubles with insomnia, as evidenced by such sober titles as ‘Doing Better’, ‘Maybe’ and indeed, ‘Sleep’. Vintage synth electronica and R&B cling to a jazzy frame, allowing confessional weariness to coexist with warm pop hooks.

Laura Veirs
The Lookout

When she’s not teaching kids to play the guitar, Laura Veirs is a singer/songwriter. A good one too. The Lookout is her tenth album and first since her collaboration with like-minds Neko Case and K.D. Lang. The Lookout is inspired by wanting to take care, be aware and look after each other. This need was fired in Veirs, like so many things these days, by the aftermath of Donald Trump becoming president. The velvet voices of Jim James and Sufjan Stevens feature. Gold coloured vinyl LP and CD on Bella Union.

77:78
Jellies

In a bid to outdo their previous moniker the Bees and make it something even more inconsequential this Isle of Wight collective have now renamed themselves 77:78. Remember it if you dare. The Bees were always great and this promises to be too with influences ranging from 'Smiley Smile' era Beach Boys to King Tubby to Syd Barrett.

Molly Nilsson
Single

Single contains two entirely exclusive new songs from Molly Nilsson, everyone’s favourite Swedish indie-synth-pop singer. These songs deal head-on with love and its consequences, via Nilsson’s much-loved cool and downbeat sound. Released in a limited edition of 800 7”s, each housed in a lino-block stamped sleeve along with a download card. On Night School.

LCD Soundsystem
American Dream

You can have a strange relationship with LCD Soundsystem, a bit like Marmite - you either love them, or hate them. This ten track release, entitled American Dream, is no doubt a great collection of tracks for any LCD fan but might not be for everyone. Available on Vinyl LP and CD on DFA / Columbia.  

Juniore
Magnifique

Man, the French really love the ‘60s don’t they? Juniore’s Magnifique is another one of those Gallic LPs that leans heavily on the likes of The Rolling Stones, Francoise Hardy, The Grateful Dead et al. Tracks like the eponymous cut have a light psychedelic bent to them too. It’s all very Melody’s Echo Chamber.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Simon Love
Sincerely, S. Love x

Once you get past the naff cover artwork and title, Sincerely, S. Love x is a good fun romp from twee-pop chanteur Simon Love. Across the ten tracks here, Love does that sort of Belle And Sebastian/Arab Strap/Regina Spektor thing of fusing folk-pop tropes with wry, self-deprecating lyricism. He seems like a nice bloke. Out via the prolific Tapete Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Ana Silvera
Oracles

In 2011 Ana Silvera composed her piece Oracles in response to losing her mother and brother in quick succession. Playing it to sell out shows with Imogen Heap, she went into the studio in 2015 with Bill Laurance (Snarky Puppy), Jasper Høiby (Phronesis) and a number of musicians to lay it down. Finally released through Gearbox this is a truly soul stirring affair.

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

Bamboo
Prince Pansori Priestess

Bamboo is a new collaboration between members of Peepholes and Trash Kit. What they are all about is busy, colourful, slightly off-key synth-pop. Prince Pansori Priestess is highly listenable (and often danceable), whilst also not sounding quite like anything else. Pressed to 180g white vinyl, in a limited edition of 500 copies on Upset The Rhythm.

Even As We Speak
Feral Pop Frenzy

Hang on  - that's not the original sleeve. Where did that wolf come from? (it's a Dingo) Anyway wolf or no wolf (Dingo?) this is a great album. Even As We Speak were the brightest and shiniest Sarah records band. As if the Go Betweens thought ah fuck it let's become Saint Etienne and made an album of technicolour pop. Essential re-issue on Emotional Response.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Apostille
Choose Life

Glaswegian, Night School Records manager and probable trainspotter Apostille (one Michael Kasparis) upsets the rhythm on Upset the Rhythm with his new album Choose Life. This one follows 2015’s Powerless with upbeat retro (especially the bass) synthpop. Good luck un-seeing the cover photo ever.

Fascinator
Water Sign

Whether Johnny Mackay - the guy on the cover of Water Sign and 100% of the members of Fascinator - takes his whimsy seriously or is just having a laff may be up for debate, but you certainly can’t fault him for effort. The eleven pop songs on this LP are called things like ‘Sex Crystals’ and are all administered with an archness that may or may not be knowing. Either way, this should be worse than it is. Imagine a Frankenband constructed from Empire Of The Sun, Darwin Deez and The Happy Mondays that - somehow! - ended up being good.

Hana Vu
How Many Times Have You Driven By

Dreamy bedroom pop and lo-fi hip-hop beats from Los Angeles based Hana Vu. Despite only being 17, Vu's been writing music for years, and has even collaborated with Willow Smith. On How Many Times Have You Driven BY she explores the knife-edge that is solitude, in which Vu has found a place to pursue her craft. On Luminelle Recordings, a new Fat Possum offshoot.

National Jazz Trio Of Scotland
Standards Vol. IV

The National Jazz Trio of Scotland are the collective led by heavily bearded composer Bill Wells. Thing is they are neither a trio nor play jazz. However they are from Scotland so that bit is correct and the album does contain moments of jazz amidst its outsider pop and modern composition. As well as ten Bill Wells originals there is a collaboration with Aidan Moffat and a cover version of fellow eccentric Scot Richard Youngs.

The Hit Parade
Oh Honey I...

Secretive, ageless indie outfit The Hit Parade drop in from their native habitat (the 1960s) to deliver a new 7”. The titular A-side ‘Oh Honey I…’ recalls Shelagh Delaney’s drama A Taste of Honey and/or its 1961 film adaptation, while the B-side ‘History of Art’ pays homage to the late novelist Elizabeth Jane Howard. As always, it’s a labour of love by the band - cut by hand, recorded in mono, limited edition.

Fazerdaze
Morningside

Flying Nun are beloved by many for their central role in documenting New Zealand’s underground indie scene, but they haven’t rested on their laurels. Here they have brand new work from up-and-coming artist Fazerdaze, who has swiftly moved from bedroom production to the fully-fledged ecstatic indie pop we hear here. Morningside is released on CD and vinyl LP.

Let’s Eat Grandma
I’m All Ears

Teenage duo Let’s Eat Grandma aim to consolidate their position as creative and dynamic artists in a world of musical homogeneity. I’m All Ears is bigger and bolder than debut LP I, Gemini, whilst also knowing when to rein in the ferocity or majesty. They’ve enlisted the help of a range of renowned producers too: David Wrench(The xx, Frank Ocean Caribou), SOPHIE (Madonna) and Faris Badwan (The Horrors). Double LP (including limited edition translucent yellow vinyl if you're quick enough) and CD on Transgressive.

alt-J
RELAXER

It's hard to say how Alt J were Grammy and Brit award nominated for their last album This Is All Yours but it did actually happen. They've been all over London recording this one and the sounds of the lead track 3WW this could be their most experimental work yet. Pretty interesting stuff it has to be said.      

Florence + The Machine
High As Hope

Florence Welch and her Machine are back with fourth album High as Hope. Besides the usual lineup, this time the Machine can count Jamie xx, Kamasai Washington, Sampha and Tobias Jesso Jr. among its turning cogs. Despite the collaborations, things tend to sound quite stripped-down and sincere, as Welch gracefully covers love, loneliness and other intimate lyrical topics.

  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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 get the 'rest' - i.e. all the B sides from the period.   

Wild Moccasins
Look Together

New West Records (All Them Witches, Ben Folds) drops the third LP from Texan group Wild Moccasins. Look Together will be seen by history as the moment the band went for broke trying to make it as a Big Pop Group. Produced by Ben H. Allen, who has helmed records for Gnarls Barkley and Animal Collective, tracks like ‘Longtime Listener’ have choruses aimed squarely at late-afternoon main stage slots. Time will tell if Wild Moccasins have their wish granted. Blondie spring to mind, but if they were, like, Of Montreal instead.

Saint Ballantine
All Saint’s Day

Nice to see the old album title artist name pun gag is still in circulation. Saint Ballantine (Brooklyn buddies Andrew Thomas Reid and Brian Marc, the latter of Denitia & Sene) specialise in downtempo electro-soul with muscular, often fuzzy and occasionally gloopy basslines and multitracked vocals. The track ‘Follow’ also features Macklemore and Ryan Lewis collaborator Hollis.

Chvrches

This is Chvrches latest record called Love Is Dead and it contains a whole load of sparkly new tracks that, at some point, you'll hear floating around on the ol' radio. These 13 tracks are available on multiple formats; two vinyl LP's, one blue coloured and one transparent, and on CD. Released on Virgin EMI.

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 penalties. Germany have won the toss and are kicking first. They’ve duly plugged all five - Pickford got a hand to Werner’s, but he couldn’t keep it out. Plucky old England have matched them on the first four - Stones (bottom-right), Welbeck (Panenka), Kane (blasted in off the bar) and Loftus-Cheek (another Panenka), Lions the lot of them. But now it’s crunch time. A sharp intake of breath from every member of the playing and coaching staff. They know that if they miss this one, their Jules Rimet will remain gleaming and the Years Of Hurt counter they have hanging in the toilets at the FA will have to wait four more years before it is reset. Up steps Raheem Sterling, the man above all other men that some would love to see fail. He’s got some chutzpah, after all the pre-tournament gripes, to put himself on the line like this. In a sense he's already won, though in a more real sense he very much hasn't. Manuel Neuer, the first goalkeeper to play with a broom, spits on his gloves and paces his line, eyeballing Raheem the whole time. Raheem just stares at the ball, trying to figure out which of the Adidas Telstar 18’s thermally-bonded panels will connect most truly with the laces of his garish boots. Gareth Southgate - a man who knows a thing or two about missing penalties in semi-finals against Germany - stands, face drawn, on the halfway-line, his arm around Stuart Pearce who is there for some reason. Back home you could hear a Pimms drop. A statue of Horatio Nelson gains sentience and raises its sword to the sky. Pints hover in mid-air. Big Ben ceases to chime. England expects… … as the credits begin to roll, bringing the curtain down on the England men's team's biggest game for a generation, an orchestral rendering of something from Embrace’s top 5 album Love Is A Basic Need is piped into a million living rooms.

Gorillaz
The Now Now

After the messy and uninspired Humanz, The World’s Most Famous Virtual Group™ needed a shake-up. So Gorillaz have locked up their bassist and hellraiser-in-chief Murdoc and drafted in a new member, Ace, in his place. The Now Now features eleven new tunes from Damon Albarn and his Merry Men. Early signs are promising - first single ‘Humility’ features George Benson and sees them rediscover a little of the sunny charm of Plastic Beach.

All We Are

All We Are came together under unlikely circumstances, bringing together people it would cost a lot of postage to get here and there: comprised of artists from Norway, Ireland and Brazil, the band met in Liverpool an started making indispensable music with a lot of harmonizing and communal affection. The 'I Wear You / Honey' 7" teases their forthcoming record, which is produced by Dan Carey, of Hot Chip and M.I.A. fame. These dudes don't really sound like M.I.A. though.

Melody's Echo Chamber
Bon Voyage

Melody Prochet is back -- finally, after very nearly a six-year wait -- with her gloriously panoramic psych-pop project Melody's Echo Chamber. Following a lengthy absence and illness, Bon Voyage is the sophomore follow-up to Prochet's self-titled debut of 2012. We hope for great things after her initial opus: an enchanting blend of breathless pop and whirlwind psychedelia. Plenty of expansive grooves are promised.

Sink Ya Teeth
Sink Ya Teeth

NYC, London, Berlin … Norwich? The East Anglian city might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of danceable post-punk, but Sink Ya Teeth emerge from Norfolk with an LP to give the likes of ESG and !!! a run for their money. They’ve toured with the latter, as well as Moon Duo, and are about to set off for a jaunt with A Certain Ratio. The likes of ‘Pushin’’ and ‘Glass’ are fun, lithe electro-pop jams.

Swinging Mademoiselles

This collection, out on limited-edition neon pink vinyl via Silva Screen, features rare tracks from the heyday of France's Yé Yé phenomenon, in which sultry young French women, armed with a dreamy innocence, sang sparkling, swinging Gallic pop. Featuring Petula Clark, Jacqueline Taieb and Katy David, expect vibrant vocals and alluring hits. 

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 other record in 2018 it is inspired by the events going on around us...and guess who sings on it? None other than Sir Brett Anderson of Suede.

Trevor Powers
Mulberry Violence

Not to harp on about it because he's clearly moved on but Trevor Power used to make beautifully emotive dream-pop under the name Youth Lagoon. Throughout those years Power was learning more and more about different styles of music and art, and on Mulberry Violence brings together a wide variety of ideas and sounds to create something stranger and more textural than his past work.

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 12” on One Little Indian.

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 Tellier’s charismatic vocal delivery. Reissued on CD and vinyl by Record Makers.

Badly Drawn Boy
The Hour Of Bewilderbeast

One of the reasons Damon Gough has turned to drink must be down to the fact that he has never come anywhere near to bettering his debut work. This album and the EPs that preceded it contain all his early folky musings when he didn't really care what anyone thought of him. It still sounds superb today and has a raggle taggle charm that was lost when he started seeing himself as a rock star. Whatever you think of him now, he still manages to perform this album live following the kind of drinking that would see lesser mortals take to their beds. Essential re-issue with loads of bonus tracks and 'kinky' leatherette sleeve.

Cigarettes After Sex
Cigarettes After Sex

This is the debut full-length album from Cigarettes After Sex, following up on a number of EPs. They’ve stepped things up for the occasion, with a sound more widescreen than ever before. The songs are romantic in subject matter and sonic construction: this could well be the soundtrack to your next heartache. CD and LP editions available on Partisan Records.

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 is exactly where she wants her music to be. Zoe’s intimate indie-rock comes covered in lovely reverb, and arrives just in time for the summer. Vinyl release on Alcopop.

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, molasses-soaked vocals that hold it all together seamlessly.

Gruff Rhys
Babelsberg

Here's the latest from Super Furry Animals' Gruff Rhys which is his first for Rough Trade in quite some time. He's recorded it with composer Stephen McNeff and the (wait for it) 72 piece BBC National Orchestra of Wales. That's an amazing amount of people/instruments. Early indications suggest it is his best album to date which is quite some going as the lad is a very consistent performer as it is.

Virginia Wing
Ecstatic Arrow

Changes can take time and Virginia Wing have slowly been morphing from a Broadcast-like psych pop band into something much more psychedelic and esoteric. Hints of greatness were found on their previous 'Measures of Joy' album but 'Ecstatic Arrow' should see the full hatching of the new band. Last year's collaboration with XAM Duo was excellent so we have high hopes for this.  

Gabriella Cohen
Pink Is The Colour of Unconditional Love

Captured Tracks have gone and captured themselves another bunch of tracks from Australian songsmith Gabriella Cohen. The follow-up to her 2015 debut LP sees Cohen honing her craft and turning in some well-heeled indie-pop in the vein of labelmates Mac Demarco and Craft Spells. With songwriting this good, Pink Is The Colour Of Unconditional Love could well prove to be a big record for 2018.

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 Smith. LP and CD on FAMM.

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 tracklisting, including Santigold, Trippie Redd and Lil Yachty. 12” EP with CD version included.

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 film, Palermo Shooting. 2LP and CD on Caroline International.

Laura Jean
Devotion

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 ‘Girls On The TV’ and ‘Touchstone’ wouldn’t sound out of place on Italians Do It Better.

Scent
KIM EP

Scent are a three-piece from London who play what I can only describe as semi-ethereal indie-pop. Kim EP is their debut single. The band are keen to throw people like me, who try to tell the general public about them, off their scent (no pun intended) with weird and incomprehensible press releases. Anyway, they’re new to Wichita Recordings and they have a pretty good track record of signing successful bands, so why not give 'em a go? One sided 12" single, limited to 300 copies.

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. With tracks like You Can’t Handcuff The Wind you can’t really go wrong for a laugh.

The Golden Age of TV / Engine
Television / And I Say

The latest double A-side from Leeds label Come Play With Me (Harkin, Magic Mountain) fronts two more fine bits of West Yorks indie. The Golden Age Of TV do a No Doubt thing on ‘Television’, and who doesn’t like a bit of Gwen Stefani et al? On the flip we get ‘And I Say’, the first new material from Engine since their excellent 2017 EP Cucumber Water. It’s another melodic, psychy stroll from the group.
