Blancmange
Unfurnished Rooms

New material from 80s synth pop mavericks Blancmange. These days they just consist of singer Neil Arthur helped out by producer extraordinaire Benge (John Foxx, Gazelle Twin). Here the duo mine a rich and fertile stream of electronic rock and are helped out by uber fan John Grant who sings and plays piano.

Shock Machine
Shock Machine

Remember the Klaxons? Of course you remember the Klaxons! James Righton was in that band and here he debuts a new project that tributes the weirdos of mainstream pop with unabashed sentimental fervor. Inspired by ELO and Roxy Music and even a bit of later-on McCartney, this record of electro-pop digressions is what you'd expect from someone who was, by the way, in the Klaxons.

Morly
Sleeping In My Own Bed

Ah my own bed. One of the main reasons why I can't keep a relationship together. Can't sleep in anyone else's. Oh no. Anyway here comes soft voiced crooner Morly aka Katy Morley who offers delicate and and refined soulful r&b influenced pop with hints towards Lapsley and Amy Winehouse. Polished mainstream pop but with much more soul and panache than, say, Adele. Might be big.

Grizzly Bear
Painted Ruins

Grizzly Bear have been away for about five years now and have now returned with their first since the wild and windy ‘Shields’. Early tasters of their new material give the impression that they are heading in a well constructed synth pop direction with their unique take on harmony and melody intact. Bound to be much anticipated.

Klyne
Klyne

Ferdous Dehzad and Nick Klein release their debut full length as electronic pop two piece Klyne. Minimalist, synthetic and a warm soul at it’s pop covered core, the dutch duo have made a move on to Because music, fitting neatly alongside Metronomy. Danceable tracks with a softer reflective side.

Happyness
Weird Little Birthday

'Weird Little Birthday' is the self produced follow up to the critically acclaimed eponymous debut EP released earlier this year from South London trio Happyness. Drawing of the influence of college rock bands such as Sparklehorse, Pavement, MGMT and Yo La Tengo, ‘Wierd Little Birthday’ is a record which plays on the difficult balance between naive enthusiasm and introspective melancholy.

Everything Everything
A Fever Dream

Manchester-based jittery popsters Everything Everything return with their fourth album and the follow up to 2015's ‘Get to Heaven’. Expect more polished but whip-smart electronic pop that somehow manages to be structurally interesting and playlist and dancefloor ready. Teaser track 'Can't Do' certainly bodes well.

Willie J Healey
People and Their Dogs

Described as 'quirky but cool' in the press release and that isn't too far from the truth. Saying that, I didn't understand that apparently 'cool' and 'quirky' were oxymoronic. A great release from the Oxford based singer-songwriter Wille J Healey under the title People and Their Dogs. This record is available on Vinyl LP and CD and is released on Columbia.

Kelley Stoltz
Que Aura

Remember the Beatles? Kelly Stoltz has done on previous albums but here he dips into other forms of anglophile music with nods to Pulp, Fleetwood Mac (they were kinda English) and the Cleaners From Venus. Quality power pop from a man who deserves to be known more than just being the Dwight Twilley of his generation.

Amy O
Elastic

Amy O has many years of lo-fi bedroom recording behind her, meaning that she arrives at her second ‘proper’ label-released album with serious instrumental and songwriting powers. Elastic is a highly personal blast of a record: guitar pop music with a real kick to it. Released in CD and vinyl editions by the Winspear label.
  • CD (WSP021CD)

Tiny Magnetic Pets
Deluxe / Debris

Taking influence from Bowie's Berlin period and '70s kraut-rock, Dublin's Magnetic Pets veer between near perfect synth pop and longer wig outs. They have plenty of celeb fans too - Kraftwerk's Wolfgang Flur collaborates here and OMD's Andy McCluskey and Visage's Rusty Egan are long term admirers.

The Dears
Times Infinity Volume Two

The second half of a two album project from Canadian indie rock band The Dears, three years after the first instalment. Their seventh album is uplifting baroque pop with a Ben Folds or Penguin Cafe Orchestra warmth and sense of playful freeness, reflective of good times. LP and CD through Dangerbird.

Trust Fund
Seems Unfair

Trust Fund is essentially singer/songwriter Ellis Jones supported by a revolving cast of musicians. Seems Unfair is their second album and comes just 9 months after their cracking debut No One’s Coming For Us. Seems Unfair was produced by Hookworms’ MJ and whilst it shows the band have progressed by honing their pop sensibilities, the youthful exuberance and reflective lyrics of Ellis Jones are retained.

Triptides
Afterglow

Triptides are just great and I'd be prepared to go into battle with anyone who says otherwise. They play superb jangle-some '60s inspired guitar pop with nods to the Byrds, REM and Pink Floyd. Their last album 'Azur' saw them at the top of their game so our entire office is on tenterhooks waiting for this to hit.

A great mix of softly sung vocals and varying genres from Japanese tropical to Latin influenced indie. Available on special edition turquoise vinyl, heavyweight black vinyl and CD.

Cinema Red and Blue
Come Back To The City, Babyface

As Fortuna Pop takes itself off this mortal coil it finishes with a flourish, bidding farewell with a series of releases including this one -- it's by a supergroup which contains members of Comet Gain, Crystal Stilts and Pale Lights. They 'farted out' (their words) these songs which have a West Coast feel with nods to the Lovin' Spoonful.

Starsailor
All This Life

Great news for fans of music as Starsailor release their first album since 2009. We may mock but these lads from Wigan have sold an incredible amount of records over the years  - over three million of the buggers shifted. So how will they fare in 2017? We're not sure. This is out on Cooking Vinyl  - the label bands go to die - so get it before they call it a day.

Joanna Gruesome / Trust Fund
Split EP

Fuzz is love: this split EP sees noise punx Joanna Gruesome continue their persistent assault on our indie rock ears with their pissed off shoegaze and gleefully screamed vocals. On the other side, though, there's also the one-man-band Trust Fund, which belongs to Ellis Jones, who makes a sound that lands between grainy indie rock and unhinged folk punk, and who has definitely listened to Neutral Milk Hotel in his time on this good planet.

Ten Flowers

Beyond The Wizards Sleeve
The Soft Bounce

Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve, the pairing of Richard Norris and Erol Alkan, are best known for their space-psychedelic remixes of indie and dance tunes, but The Soft Bounce has them producing a full suite of original material that swims through synth-pop and acid drops. Guests include Holly Miranda and Hannah Peel. On Phantasy Sound.

Oro Swimming Hour
Penrose Winoa

A massive sixteen-track release from Oro Swimming Hour that gives you a sense of wellbeing and general ‘feel good’ vibes. Daft in places and self-confessed lo-fi bedroom music, but Penrose Winos is no rushed record and should be in no sense under-valued as a collection of soft and almost melancholic tracks. Available on vinyl LP.

Yumi Zouma
Yoncalla

Straight outta New Zealand, Yumi Zouma present their debut full-length album, following on from a handful of singles and EPs. Yoncalla is a super-sleek set of synth-pop, pulsing with a subtle, early-on-a-summer-evening kind of feeling. The kind of music to make you just swoon away from your work and go party… Released by the Cascine label.

Makeness & Adult Jazz
Other Life

After their recent album on Tri Angle - Earrings Off!, which showed little to no respect to straight line towing indie rules the UK experimental four piece have teamed up with Scottish disco oddball Makeness. Take Eggshell vocal oddness and add a hunk of catchy disco goodness. That’s a head sticker, I’ll tell ya.

Ilk
Y U

London, England's Ilk have teamed up with composer, produced and sometime house tinker Matthew Herbert for their full-length debut Y U. The arty experimenters find the confidence to voyage into the niches and crevices where caverns of found sound and halls of pop overlap. The guys -- Bob, Olly and Tom -- laboured over four years on the record, and with Herbert adding his magical flourishes it's a supremely competent -- nay, sparkling record.

Miles Brown
Seance Fiction

Miles Brown is probably best known as a member or horror synth mega-lords The Night Terrors, and whilst musically very different the tone is very much still there. Replacing ominous theremins and in-your-face terrifying organ stabs with playful synthesised chip music akin to College or The Postal Service… if they had some dystopian existential crisis.

Tobacco

Tobacco, also of Black Moth Super Rainbow, has done a lot of great work over the last decade, including a major TV show theme and work with Aesop Rock as well as solo productions. Ripe & Majestic collects twenty-four tracks that are either rare or previously unreleased, rounding them together into one neat and exciting passage, available on CD or double LP. From Rad Cult.

Junior Boys
Big Black Coat

Junior Boys haven’t released a full-length album for half a decade: a good length of time in which to carefully construct a very strong brace of soulful synth-pop songs. Big Black Coat has a sleeve straight out of the 80’s, and there is an aspect of that in the style of the sound. But the production also has an unmistakably modern stamp on it (well, post-2000 at least). On City Slang.

Rubbing shoulders with the likes of The Big Moon and Goat Girl, Girl Ray are in the centre of the scene. Their debut, Early Grey, strikes gold and fulfils every hope held by a growing fandom.

Legacy

Although you might reckon that the world is quite well stocked with David Bowie best-of compilations already, this one is new to 2016 and therefore includes two songs from Blackstar! The other unique feature is an unreleased mix of ‘Life on Mars?’: oooh. And of course, four vinyl sides packed full of familiar Bowie favourites. Legacy is out on Parlophone.

Jagwar Ma & Dreems
Another Day In The Sun

Another Day in the Sun was originally by The Moffs. It was a jangling slice of ‘80s Australian psychedelia. Here, Dreems aka Angus Gruzman and Jaguar Ma aka Jono Ma, have collaborated to make a slow and beautiful, dream-like version that they've stripped down and rebuilt with influences as disperate as The Beach Boys and dub. Another Day In The Sun is the perfect way to end the summer.

David Bowie
Peter and The Wolf

Never one to miss up an opportunity to travel through time, David Bowie has a sick collaboration with Sergei Prokofiev for our ears here. Or, you know: not that. In all seriousness, though, folks, he does narrate Prokofiev's score for Peter And The Wolf here, performing written material by Prokofiev himself for the 1978 work. And then on the flip for some reason there's a performance of the Young Person's Guide To Orchestra because... I don't know. Because Wes Andersen, that's why.

Deerful
Peach

Emma Winston has sung in loads of folky acts such as Darren Hayman, Enderby's Room and Owl & Mouse, but this -- her first solo offering -- is completely different. She recorded it on synthesisers small enough to take on the bus and so it has more in common with the likes of Grimes, but there's still an indie heart beating here. Perhaps of interest to fans of early St Etienne. Her voice has a great wobble to it.

Adrian Galvin of Yoke Lore is back, with his Goodpain EP for Independent Label Alliance.

Virginia Wing
Measures Of Joy

South London four piece Virginia Wing's debut album promises some slinky and dream-like electronic pop which owes debts to early Krautrock, revered Brum legends Broadcast and the Radiophonic pioneers of wibbly otherworldly electronics. Also see the trance-like post-punk rhythmic drive of, say, This Heat. 'Measures of Joy' is certainly a hazy montage of moody electronics, dreamily sung and sometimes spoken vocals, with subtle musique concrete influences. Indespensible, one of the best 43 minutes of the year. Proper full review to follow shortly but this crystalline beauty could creep onto a couple of end-of-year lists.

When dreams come true  - part 435. Darren Hayman was watching Emma Kupa's band Standard Fare one night and thought to himself "I'd like to be in a band with her". So he made it happen at here it is. The two songwriters shared ideas, wrote songs together then asked a couple of musician pals to help flesh out the sound. Hey presto a new collaboration that plays to the songwriters strengths. Lovely.

The Melbourne band make the kind of fuzzy lo-fi pop that isn’t as straightforward as it initially seems. It’s twists and turns recall Bob Mould or early Teenage Fanclub.

Television Personalities
The Painted Word

Eighties underground post-punk group Television Personalities were a key part of the scene, lead by Dan Treacy’s smart lyrics and songcraft. 1984’s The Painted Word is their fourth record and one of their finest, winning much love for its slightly darker and more psychedelic sound.

The Charlatans
Different Days

It's hard to fathom but as well as tweeting on a secondly basis Tim Burgess also manages to help make regular bursts of music both solo and with his beloved the Charlatans. It was hard to be anything but nice about their last album as a) it was genuinely good to have them back and b) if you did so the entire Twitter community would gang up on you. Anyway this is a brand new album from the band and the first since the sad passing of drummer Jon Brookes. Features guest spots from Anton Newcombe (the Brian Jonestown Massacre/Twitter), Johnny Marr (the Smiths/Twitter) and Paul Weller (not on Twitter).

Kilo
Backwater

These two are actual cousins but that hasn't stopped them collaborating on a sleek electronic project where influence is taken from the likes of James Blake, Lauryn Hill, and The xx.  Out of this they have produced a pop sensibility that balances low lit late night atmospherics with clubby grooves.

ISLAND
A Place You Like

Indie-rockers ISLAND are slithering into the public consciousness with their promising glut of singles. A Place You Like justifies this rise in prominence that has seen the group already sell out a London Scala show before a debut album is released; catch them live and/or on record at any cost.

Garageland
More Exits To Garageland

I remember Garageland, They were one of those ‘90s New Zealand bands who came to the UK and threatened to make it big but didn’t because no New Zealand band ever does (except Crowded House). They made a skewed type of Flying Nun style garage (natch) rock with some Sonic Youth and the Clean stylings. We think this is a ‘best of’ and certainly will be worth picking up.

Spain
Live At The Lovesong

What. A. Life. One morning Spain’s Josh Haden woke up and thought "You know, I'd like to go on tour in L.A.” We’ve all been there. Thing is Josh made it actually happen and his band booked a residency at an LA speakeasy called The Love Song Bar. He also taped the results which you can hear on this album.

Lush Purr
Cuckoo Waltz

If you, like me, were devastated when the Yawns split up then the related Lush Purr offer some hope for a better future. They make dreamy lo-fi pop that has an off kilter feel about it with nods to Cowtown, Bis and Urusei Yatsura. Why does so much good music come out of Scotland? I don't know. It just does.

The Test Of Time

Funny how things come back round. German indie imprint A Turntable Friend were all but forgotten despite releasing a plethora of cool indie 7"s in the early '90s. They returned last year with an excellent single by Wakefield's Drahla and look to again become a force of good in indie circles. Here is a compilation of the best bits of their early releases and includes great bands such as Hellfire Sermons, Lorelei, Boyracer and most importantly Bomb Pops 'Girl Daredevil' which I'm here going to declare as the best indie pop song ever written. All proceeds to charity.

Wanted To Want It Too

After gaining a Mercury prize nomination and a boat load more production skills with his debut album, C Duncan, returns with a new single. It’s a huge washy and glorious synth-ballad. Straight shooting drums and walking bass line with almost orchestral synth arrangements, and his layered voice floating around somewhere in the middle.

Prefab Sprout
Steve McQueen

Other than the odd '80s hit here and there Prefab Sprout have never had the commercial success they deserve but this could be to do with them never touring and chief sprout Paddy McAloon increasingly resembling some Grizzly Adams/Moondog cross breed. They have though achieved a cult following and critically lauded with McAloon being regarded as a songwriter of the highest order. Steve McQueen was their second album and probably a career highlight. It contains several classics such as When Love Breaks Down, Faron Young and Appetite. Gorgeous music.
