Erskine Lynas
Lease of Youth

This is the debut record from Erskine Lynas and is called Lease of Youth. This ten-track record has similarities to many bands from the 70/80/90's but with a more contemporary twist - very mellow synth-pop if you will. Available on vinyl LP and released on Local Action (who are apparently VERY proud to announce this one). 

M83
Go!

Taken from M83’s 2016 album Junk, GO! Features vocals by Mai Lan and has been put together here with two remixes(a relatively stripped back one from Deakin of Animal Collective, and a super cheeky 8-bit version) as well as a completely unheard and unreleased track which, again, features Mai Lan on vocal duties.

Math and Physics Club
Lived Here Before

Flawless sons-in-law 3-man incarnation of the word ‘adorkable’ Math and Physics Club are treating us to their 5th album already. Lived Here Before features more of their sweet and nostalgic indiepop, using acoustic guitars, plain and well-chosen bass-lines, and the occasional ukulele to paint a perfectly romantic portrait of life on the American West Coast.

Sondre Lerche
Pleasure

Pleasure is the 10th album by Norwegian singer/songwriter Sondre Lerche. It is part two of an opus that began with his 2014 well-received break-up album Please. Lerche is highly regarded in his homeland and well thought of elsewhere by those in the know. His influences are diverse, ranging from Stereolab and Broadcast to Madonna, Janet Jackson and George Michael.

Pulp
Separations

Separations was Pulp's 1992 era pre success album and their second full length after 1987's Freaks. The first half of the record is a sort of fledgling version of what you might expect from the Common People hitmakers while the B side dabbles in acid house and electronica. It took them a while to reach mainstream success but Separations was another of their stopping off points on their way to glory.

Ethan Gold
Songs From A Toxic Apartment

Ethan Gold’s first album meanders in all directions. Packed with emotions and careful orchestrations, Songs from a Toxic Apartment is reminiscent of Elliott Smith in its one-man drama. Although the man's been busy writing movie soundtracks, his debut is finally being reissued on vinyl and CD as we await the release of his upcoming album.

Television Personalities
Beautiful Despair

Beautiful Despair is an unreleased album by cult indie band, Television Personalities. Unreleased until now, that is! The album was recorded, but unfinished in 1990. Some tracks appeared in different guises elsewhere, but this is the first time they’ve been released in their original form. A couple of the tracks mention their indie contemporaries, Lawrence from Felt and Evan Dando from The Lemonheads, recalling experiences they’d shared. If you’re quick you can get a limited edition indies only marble vinyl version, otherwise it’s black vinyl or CD.

Fujiya & Miyagi
EP1

Fujiya & Miyagi stroll cooly into their sixteenth year of existence as a musical duo with a slick new EP. On ‘Serotonin Rushes’, the vocal scarcely rises above the level of a whisper, even as the underslung synth-pop grows to the level of ecstatic. Sleek club players these guys. 12” on Impossible Objects Of Desire.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Dream Themes
20 Golden Greats

Formerly the backing band for Timperley’s favourite son, Frank Sidebottom, Dream Themes have since carved out a niche for themselves by performing classic TV themes to appreciative audiences. Their debut LP, 20 Golden Greats is the final, and it has to be said, rather celebratory release from the Too Pure singles club. 20 tracks over two 7” singles will see the singles club’s ten year run come to an end in style.

62 Miles From Space
Time Shifts

62 Miles From Space is a project by Neil Davidson and Roman Kutnov. The fact that they both live in Moscow doesn’t mean they ever meet up, play live, jam together or anything daft like that. This is a virtual music project with the two protagonists communicating by email and playing virtual instruments. Time Shifts is their debut 4-track EP on Mega Dodo. Red vinyl 12”. Surely you’re intrigued?

Daunt
Unbearable Light

Chiselled Londoner Daunt’s debut EP Unbearable Light is a polite bunch of funky, downtempo electropop. It can be a dreary thing to search for meaningful connections within today’s oppressive, hypermediated urban contexts. Lyrically, such a theme seems to run through each of the songs here. We’re also in for a couple of grandiose choruses on ‘Almost Anything’ and ‘Beamish Boy’. Good for driving - unless you live in London.

Engine
Cucumber Water

Leeds-based primal screamers Engine finally get their act together to release their debut vinyl of homebrewed psych-tinged electronic pop odysseys. Clocking in at over 30 minutes over only 4 tracks, these multi-segmented song behemoths explore the distresses of love via house beats, wailing guitars and a shameless use of sampling. Mastered at Ten Eight Seven.

Ennio the Little Brother
Bunk Beds / Cacophony

If you thought Welsh hip-hop started and finished with Goldie Lookin’ Chain, think again. Ennio The Little Brother hails from North Wales and makes soulful music - dream pop-meets-hip-hop, but all with a bedroomy, DIY aesthetic that adds grit to his conscious and aware lyrics. His debut release, Bunk Beds/Cacophony is a limited edition 12” of 300 copies on Mai 68 Records.

The Neighbourhood
Wiped Out!

The Neighbourhood, aka The NBHD, are and electro-rock quintet from California. Wiped Out! is their second album and follows 2013’s angst-ridden album I Love You. Thier mix of angsty lyrics, polished production and traditional songcraft left critics split but is likely to appeal to teenagers as much as older listers.

Dos Floris
The Widowed Earth

Now here's a gem of a record. The Widowed Earth is a self-released album from Dos Floris, a London born singer songwriter who has swapped out much of the traditions of her roots in favour of an ethereal, abstract sound that marries sublime, heavenly textures with energetic propulsion and winding sung tales.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

The Belle Game
Fear / Nothing

The second effort from Vancouver dreampop outfit The Belle Game, Fear / Nothing sees the band rework their sound and broaden their horizons. Their characteristically fuzzy pastel sound is contrasted with darker lyrics and bolder percussion. Near-ecstatic vocal highs take their place alongside a few brooding numbers, all infused with synths and classic reverb.

Seafang
Solid Gold

More indie pop from the ever busy Emotional Response. What we have hear are two fuzzy and catchy slabs of old school indie with nods towards the Darling Buds and Shop Assistants as well as a healthy dose of shoegaze blur. It is full of vigour and fun and the lead guitar is very busy indeed twirling all over place.  

Xenoula
Xenoula

The natural environment has long been a source of inspiration for all kinds of composers and producers. Xenoula sits firmly in this sphere, coaxing atmosphere from her surroundings and incorporating them into her mysterious, electronic pop tunes. Sounding like Lamb and early Aphex with a modern twist, it's pretty lush.

The Soap Opera
Ready To Hatch

The Soap Opera are a bright, sparky, even sugary-sweet indie-pop proposition. FOr their first album they offer up eleven tight little tracks that are bursting with light psychedelia, tropical flavours and 80’s UK-style indie. From France! Ready To Hatch is a vinyl release courtesy of Ample Play.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Mini Dresses
Mini Dresses

Straight outta Boston and almost impossible to google this band play the sort of slo-fi music comparable with Beach House and Mazzy Star but also have the wobbly jangle of large swathes of the Sarah Records back catalogue. Initially a home recording project, the Mini Dresses have already quietly amassed an impressive set of their dreamy pop songs.   
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Cindy Wilson
Change

Cindy Wilson is of course one of the founder members of The B-52s, everyone’s favourite queer-leaning new wave art-pop funtime band. Change finds Cindy changing tack a little, making interesting electro-pop with friends of hers from Athens, Georgia. A bit more subtle and varied than most B-52s material, but still definitely a good time. On Kill Rock Stars.

Saint Etienne
Continental

Continental is Saint Etienne’s rarities collection, released in Japan in 1997 and featuring material from the preceding five years, much of it not previously available (though it does also feature that lovely hit song ‘He’s On The Phone’. Now Continental is receiving its first ever vinyl reissue, on the Heavenly label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Saint Etienne
Good Humor

1998 saw Saint Etienne release their fourth album Good Humor, which was recorded in Sweden and marks a movement away from the band’s dancier origins. As well as more of a balance between acoustic instruments and synths, the album has quite a loungey soft vibe, almost like a flipside to what Stereolab were doing at a similar time. Reissued on Heavenly.

Taffy
Darkle

6 track mini album available on 12” vinyl or CD from Club AC30. Darkle showcases Japan’s indie pop four piece Taffy’s bizarre blend of '90s british guitar riffs and esoteric Japanese dreamy pop vocals. A blend of Graham Coxon 4-chord stomp and Stone Roses psychedelia, with Deerhoof like vocal performance.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Moon Diagrams
Remixes

Hot pink (!) limited edition 7" of remixes of songs from Moon Diagrams' (Deerhunter's drummer, Moses John Archuleta) debut album from earlier this year. Psychedelic dream pop-ers Happy Meals make the a-side proper funky while fellow Glaswegians, Komodo Kolektif, tackle side b.

  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

PicaPica
Spring & Shade

I wonder if the surge of CD's will ever become a retro collectors item like vinyls are? If so, this CD EP will more than likely become a collectors item a) for the quality of music on it, and b) for the stunning album art. Spring & Shade is the latest release from PicaPica and is available on CD from Rough Trade. 

Field Music
Music For Drifters

This is the classic type of Record Store release. This instrumental soundtrack to a silent film is not the sort of thing Field Music would normally release and so fits into the original aesthetic of unusual releases. Here it is on limited silver vinyl and it looks like they'll be touring this accompanying the film in theatres across the UK soon. The arty buggers.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Sound of Ceres
Nostalgia for Infinity

Nostalgia for Infinity is technically the debut for Sound of Ceres, but their dreamy pop and sample-heavy bossa nova sound has actually be honed through previous bands and live performance. Delicate guitar and drums are hidden within a patchwork of samples and soft boy/girl harmonies. We have the CD, vinyl LP and limited aque blue independents-only vinyl!

Various
Typical Girls

Typical Girls takes its title from a lyrics of song by The Slits, and it showcases an array of modern female-fronted bands who’ve taken up their might fem-rock mantle. Awesome punks from around the world are here, including Rakta, The Splits, Slum Of Legs and Shopping. Released on Emotional Response.

Björk
Utopia

Utopia is Bjork’s ninth album, still with One Little Indian, still pushing boundaries artistically and sonically. The album’s artwork reflects the album’s themes and sound, apparently, but you have to be a better art critic than me to figure that out. Musically, Bjork worked with Venezuelan DJ Arca and a thirteen-piece flute orchestra. Lyrically, she is in an optimistic mood, pushing for some kind of Utopia as a necessity to escape the world we currently live in.

Teen Men
Teen Men

Teen Men are a four piece audio/visual group comprised of musicians Nick Krill and Joe Hobson (The Spinto Band) and visual artists Albert Birney (Simply Sylvio) and artist Catharine Maloney. Their eponymously titled, self produced debut album was recorded at The Garden Center and Paper Lab Recording studios in their hometown of Delaware, their music is melodic, pop influenced psyche constructed from ambient layers of synths, samples guitars and vocals.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Robert Sotelo
Cusp

Andrew Doig makes his full length album debut as Robert Sotelo. Cusp showcase twelve tracks of delightful and sincere psyche-pop. It verges on lo-fi, but it’s more just charming. Drawing influence from the likes of Paul McCartney, it’s a slice of post 30 life. Limited LP on Upset The Rhythm.

The La's
1987

If not quite the holy grail, this looks like an essential release for all those frustrated the La's fans. It features sessions from 1987 (natch) recorded at the Flying Picket and at Echo & the Bunnymen's studio. There's also a few live tracks and rarities which may part satiate those still hoping for new material.   

New Order
NOMC15

Towards the end of 2015, New Order played two gigs at Brixton Academy in support of their album Music Complete. The shows were subject to rave reviews, including a five-star write-up in The Guardian, and the audio from the second of those concerts was captured by Live Here Now. Now Mute present it across CD and triple LP. Comes with plenty of the hits as well.

U2
Songs Of Experience

Latest creation from the inevasible U2. On Island Records. Available on double LP cyan blue vinyl. Or there’s a limited edition deluxe box-set version including CD, blue double LP, a themed ‘newspaper’ and a handful of extra tracks if the regular 13 wasn’t enough for you. There you go.
  • Artist(s):
  • U2

The Just Joans
You Might Be Smiling Now...

Delicious poppy alternative rock songs from this Scottish outfit, combining simplistic lyrics with a soft harmonic vocal backdrop, and lots of atmosphere and space making sonic devices like tambourines and hand claps. It's emotionally open and draws, delightfully, on alternative 90s indie and 60s girl groups.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

BDY_PRTS
Fly Invisible Hero

BDY_PRTS (most likely an abbreviation of ‘Beady Parts’) introduce their debut LP Fly Invisible Hero via Aggrocats. Strongly audiovisual, the band consists of Jill O’Sullivan (Sparrow and the Workshop), Jenny Reeve (Strike the Colours) and Johnny Scott (The Kills, Chvrches). Duo vox and guitar round off the Glaswegians’ array of drums and electronics for an energetic bunch of Eighties-esque electropop.

Amber Run
For A Moment, I Was Lost

One of those bands who have become absolutely massive without you actually noticing them doing so, the Nottingham four-piece up the emotional ante for their second debut LP. Fans of London Grammar and Kodaline - hell, even Coldplay - will enjoy the grandiose rise-and-fall of songs like ‘Stranger’ and ‘No Answers’. ‘Fickle Game’, sadly, isn’t a Chris Isaak throwback, but is nice nonetheless.

Brett
Mode

Mode is the second album from synth-pop four-piece Brett (also know as The Dance Party) and the synths are even lovelier and the falsetto vocals even higher. The group are obviously influenced by 1980s synthesizer textures, but they also draw on modern pop productions and sultry R&B. Available on vinyl LP from Cascine
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Sob Stories
Debut 12-inch

Taking their cues from the joyous jangle of ‘80s guitar bands, Sob Stories' aptly titled Debut 12-Inch sees the Bay Area band whizz through guitar pop without leaving you time to get bored. The band are led by Joel Cusumano, previously of power-pop band Talkies, so his melodic credentials all check out. 12” EP on Emotional Response.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Baths
Romaplasm

It’s been a few years, but Baths (aka Will Weisenfeld) appears to have found the time among all the anime and computer games for another Anticon album. Led by affable, confessional songwriting, Romaplasm swings to the steps of camp, bubbly poptronica. It comes off as more lyrical, a touch lighter and more spacious than Will’s sidechain-core, L.A.-beat early material.

The Charlatans
Over Again

The Charlatans are still going strong and here unleash a Christmas present to all their remaining fans in the form of this funky patchwork quilt of a song taken from their recent 'Different Days' opus. Not sure what is on the B-side as we haven't been given any information. Hopefully a life sized 3D hologram of Tim Burgess's head.

The Lemons
Hello, We're The Lemons

Originally released as a cassette tape on Gnar Tapes, Hello, We’re The Lemons now gets a full-blown vinyl issuing on Burger Records. The Lemons are a straight-down-the-line pop band, all about shiny-smiley melodies and songs about ice creams and candy. Lovely stuff. This edition has a whole 28 tracks!
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Virna Lindt
Shiver

This 1983 debut album from the Swedish singer-artiste Virna Lindt was explicitly written and recorded with the notion of stylish European cinema soundtracks in mind: what fertile and chic sonic territory to be working in! Shiver’s orchestral pop is suitably sweeping and cool, and Lindt has just the right air of insouciance about her to make the whole thing work. Reissued by Les Disques du Crepuscule.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

The Charlatans
Different Days

The Charlatans release their first single from their recent 'Different Days' LP and it's the title track and it includes a rather decent remix by those elder statespeople of electronica and industrial music Chris and Cosey. They add a disco pulse to the track and take almost everything else off.

Björk
Vulnicura Strings (The Acoustic Version: Strings, Voice and Viola Organista Only)

Bjork is really treating her fans with this album round: following on from the marvellous original and the recent remix series, we now have a version of Vulcinara that strips everything back to just vocals and strings, with several new parts being recorded especially. Naturally the results are gorgeous. On One Little Indian.

Prince
When Doves Cry

Warner Bros present a series of Prince reissues, this time focused on 12” singles. Reissued in their original vinyl formats with the original artwork and their original B-sides, these singles are available again just as they were meant to be experienced. When Doves Cry, the lead single from the Purple Rain album, is backed with the song ‘17 Days’.

Choir Boy
Sunday Light

Choir Boy is not a project of an unaccompanied acappella male chorister, but the dream-pop outfit of former punk rocker Adam Klopp. Sunday Light is a bright and melancholy pair of 80’s-flavoured new romantic pop music, catchy and grand but also essentially bedroom in feel. 7” single on DAIS.

Spirit Fest
Spirit Fest

Spirit Fest is an expanded form of the wonderful Japanese group Tenniscoats, wherein the two Coats are joined by Markus Acher and Cico Beck of Notwist, and Matt Fowler of Jam Money. Recorded in Munich in winter, Spirit Fest is a typically lovely recording from this personnel. Released by Morr Music.
  • Genre(s):

Black Honey
Dig

New single from hot new Brighton rock band Black Honey. This song features exactly one riff and that riff, if you would permit me, is very good. Youtube commenter Higgy reckons they sound like a female fronted Arctic Monkeys. That's not far off, so long as we're talking about the sleazy, slicked back hair version of those South Yorkshire boys.

The Primitives
New Thrills

Vintage guitar pop delivered in fine style by The Primitives, back again with songs as bright and fun as ever. New Thrills is a four track maxi-single packed with sweet indie sing-song vocals, catchy guitar riffs and a garage-surfy vibe. Summery super songs! Edition of 1000, pressed to 10” vinyl on the Elefant label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Trespassers William
Anchor

Slow team Trespassers William reissue one of their many requiems just in time for RSD: 'Anchor' is early days for the band, back when they were teens trying to one up Slint in the race for prodigal indie rock talent. These tracks see the band begin to traverse their twin sounds: wide-open ambient 'scapes and plain but plaintive indie pop songs. Lovely, of course. Of course.

Chantal Acda
The Sparkle In Our Flaws

Chantal Acda may be familiar through Sleepingdog, her rich collaboration with Adam Wiltzie of Stars Of The Lid. The Sparkle In Our Flaws has her melancholy vocals floating above delicate instrumental constructions to which Peter Broderick and Shahzad Ismaily contributed. An accomplished, drifty record, on Glitterhouse.

Phoenix
It's Never Been Like That

Album number three from those slick Parisian pop fellows Phoenix. It’s Never Been Like That was something of a hit on initial release in 2006, pleasing listeners across the spectrum with its mixture of soft rock textures, pop melodies, and louche Frenchness. Reissued in a vinyl format by Rhino.

David Bowie
Pin Ups

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. Pin Ups, released in 1973, finds Bowie covering a number of his 60’s favourites, including tracks by The Who and Pink Floyd. This LP release uses the 2015 remasters.

Camera Obscura
My Maudlin Career

My Maudlin Career was the fourth (and to date penultimate) album by Scottish pop people Camera Obscura originally released in 2009.  Their cinematic Northern Soul-influenced indie-pop has only gained traction in the intervening years and following the tragic death of founding member Carey Lander, the band have tentatively started to play shows again. What better time then for a re-issue.

John Maus
Screen Memories

John Maus returns! Six years have passed since ‘We Must Become The Pitiless Censors’ -- during which time Maus has toured, released a rarities collection and finished his doctorate in Political Philosophy. He sounds as towering and stately as ever on Screen Memories; the record is another personal one which will haunt and invigorate. He even designed and built the modular synths he plays on it. Polyphony abounds! LP / CD on Ribbon music. 

Baxter Dury
Prince of Tears

His first release on Heavenly Recordings, Baxter Dury continues his lo-fi pop forays with Prince of Tears. Dury’s fifth album is brimming with his usual downbeat musings on relationships and excess but this time includes an orchestral score which melds with Dury’s usual synth instrumentation to create a sublime album brimming with hints of Serge Gainsbourg but with a very English charm.  
  • Genre(s):

The Monochrome Set
Spaces Everywhere

Back in their third incarnation, The Monochrome Set are releasing twelfth album. The band hasn't left behind their old sounds and tendencies, and in ways Spaces Everywhere has audible roots in the eighties. However, the old-school blues and new wave are combined with a fresh sounds that make this album appealing to both the fans and those unfamiliar with The Monochrome Set.

The Mary Onettes
The Mary Onettes

Swedish dreamers The Mary Onettes released their eponymous debut album ten years ago, and a decade is a good amount of time, so here it is again! The Mary Onettes is a sensitive album of anthemic indie, sure to reach into your heart and soul alike. Revisit this little cult favourite on vinyl or on CD, via the Labrador label.

Pete Astor
Water Tower

Pete Astor was in both The Loft and The Weather Prophets, two bands who were signed to classic indie label Creation back in the day. On his new single, Water Tower, he is joined by and indie supergroup featuring James Hoare of Veronica Falls/Ultimate Painting/Proper Ornaments fame, Franic Rozycki and Jonny Helm from The Wave Pictures and Pam Berry from Withered Hand and Black Tambourine. Astor is releasing the single via his new label Tapete. Initial releases on the label have been rather interesting.

Ultimate Painting
Dust On My Eyes

Well this is nice. It’s two totally exclusive unavailable elsewhere tracks from pretty darn nice indie-poppers Ultimate Painting. We already know them from such albums as last years ‘Dusk’ where we found that  their charming understated indie rarely fails to satisfy. Lovely stuff. 

big tide
Half The Time

Leeds-based Liverpool-born Ben Thomas began his journey as Big Tide when he hooked up with Eagulls/Pulled Apart By Horses producer Matt Johnson. Taking his influences from The Byrds, Big Star and Teenage Fanclub he’s created some pretty classy sixties-tinged power-pop with his new single Half The Time. Two track 12” pressed on 140g black vinyl.

Morrissey
Bona Drag

This 1990 compilation of Morrissey’s first run of singles and b-sides made for one of his best albums. Besides the hits (Sudehead, Everyday Is Like Sunday, November Spawned A Monster), he’d continued the Smiths tradition of hiding the odd gem on a b-side or the flip of a 12” (the self-deprecating Disappointed comes to mind). The expanded edition adds a few previously unreleased numbers, bringing the total to 20. Remastered 20th anniversary edition on CD or double LP.
  • Genre(s):

Girl Ray
Trouble

First ‘proper’ release for youth band Girl Ray, following some online-only tracks. Trouble is the work of three people scarcely out of school, and their bright indie-pop outlook is a welcome corrective to the cynicism of people like you (yes, you). 7” single released as part of the Moshi Moshi singles club.

Tanya Donelly
Swan Song Series

Tanya Donelly founded Throwing Muses. And also The Breeders. And also Belly. So she certainly knows what she is doing when it comes to left-of-the-mainstream songwriting. Most of the contents of Swan Song Series were previously released as digital EPs: now they are gathered together in this attractive 3CD / 3LP set. On American Laundromat.

Half Waif
Probable Depths

Half Waif (the solo project of Nandi Rose Plunkett, also spotted in the band Pinegrove), released Probable Depths in 2016, and now the Cascine label are giving it a proper vinyl pressing to let its lovely songs fully shine. The Half Waif sound places melodic dramatic songs in the middle of a swirl of pleasing electronics. Limited edition of 400 LPs.

Euros Childs
House Arrest

House Arrest is the 13th solo album by former Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci mainman Euros Childs. It was recorded in Elton John producer Gus Dudgeon’s Cardiff studio by Stephen Black, better known to us as Sweet Baboo. Euros Childs is never short of melody or pleasingly weird lyrical themes and House Arrest proves that his cup still overfloweth with tunes-a-plenty.
  • Genre(s):

Fujiya & Miyagi
Transparent Things

First-time vinyl release of the Brighton band’s third LP, from 2006. There are some obvious Neu! moves here and there, but unlike many Can copyists, these guys were, uh... canny enough to retain the slinky funk aspect Damo and co. delivered. Clever proto-Sleafords lyrics and the occasional whiff of Italo-disco add to the appeal.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

The Apples In Stereo
Her Wallpaper Reverie

Album the third from The Apples in Stereo, first released in 1999. Her Wallpaper Reverie is a relatively quick spin, clocking in at just under half an hour, and is notable for including more brief interludes than fully-fledged songs! But for fans of this delightful band of alt-pop weirdos, that’s got to be a good thing eh? Reissued to vinyl by Yep Roc.

Charlotte Gainsbourg

Lomond Campbell
Only A City Apart

Scottish label Triassic Tusk does good by everyone again by uncovering this lost EP by Lomond Campbell. Originally privately commissioned and pressed very limitedly. Following their music for all policy they have stuck ‘em out for us to enjoy. Fitting sweetly next to King Creosote, Only A City Apart is heart-warming indie pop with electronic edges and soaring vocals.

The Apples In Stereo
Tone Soul Evolution

It's the second album by The Apples In Stereo, released in 1997 but apparently never available in its originally-intended master until this reissue right here! Tone Soul Evolution is a fabulous example of the band’s experimentally-tinged dreamy-psychedelic indie pop, produced in a 24-track studio for maximum expression and detail. Reissued on Yep Rec.

Half Forward Line
The Back of Mass

I’m already interested in an album when it was recorded over two days in a Derelict Irish Rural Pub. Was it derelict at the start of the sessions, or just at the end? I also like short sharp albums, so Half Forward Line’s half hour stomper - a jangler, a power-popper, a sharp dose, a pounder - has lots going for it. We’ve got members of So Cow and Oh Boland if they mean anything to you, and we’ve got songs about social anxiety which will probably mean something to all of us. “The Back Of Mass” comes on cassette - perhaps all they had to record on in the pub.

Jasmine Minks
Another Age

Everybody remembers Alan McGee’s indie label Creation, home to Teenage Fanclub, My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream, Jesus & Mary Chain and some willfully obscure band called Oasis? Well, Aberdeen indie-poppers Jasmine Minks were the first band to release anything on the label. Another Age is being reissued on vinyl to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the feat.

Spinning Coin
Permo

After a couple of excellent 7"s and some pretty sweet support slots Spinning Coin finally drop their big debut album. This Glasgow band have slowly honed their sound of luscious indie-pop that takes inspiration from the golden ages of indie (both C86 '80s and early '90s grunge) but crucially remembering to add in future classic melodies to the equation.

Tom O.C Wilson
Tell A Friend

Having released a fair amount of material in other guises, Tom O.C Wilson makes his first outing under his own name, with an album of jaunty, unpredictable tracks. Though poppy in general, there's a distinct air of strangeness, with shifting time signatures, instrumental hooks and meandering vocals coming at you from all angles.

Dawn People
The Star Is Your Future

Dawn People's category defying character is no surprise given the wide ranging influences that have fed its creation. Opening with hip-hop tempo beats, jazz flute and distinct Avalanches style plunderphonics, the palette twists and grows over the album, introducing warm synths, loungey grooves and additional madness to the mix.

Whitney
Light Upon The Lake: Demo Recordings

While we excitedly wait for the second album from Chicago duo Whitney, they have served up their debut in its rawest form with Light Upon The Lake: Demo Recordings. As the guys move on from a cathartic songwriting and recording experience and a grueling touring schedule, they are keen to show where their critically acclaimed debut all began. To sweeten the deal, they’ve included a cover of Alain Toussaint’s You and Me, a previously unreleased recording of an inspirational favourite.

Dillon
Kind

On her third opus, Dominique Dillon De Byington (or Dillon to us music listeners) looks at something over to the right. Enough about the cover - Kind is a feast of brass instrumentation over an electronic pop backdrop, with Feist and Bjork comparisons to boot. As with all great pop songs, this deals with love, that old thing with all its ups and downs.

Tusks
Dissolve

Tusks, aka Emily Underhill, is a rising star of many talents. As producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist she if fully in control of her music, creating expansive, emotional pop from icy shards of synth, guitars and voice. Dissolve is her debut album, following on from the 2014 EP Ink. Her singular vision for her music has drawn comparisons to label-mate Bjork.

Martin Carr
New Shapes Of Life

Martin Carr was the guitarist and principle songwriter for always critically successful and momentarily commercially huge Liverpool band The Boo Radleys. New Shapes of Life is his third solo album and follows on from 2014’s The Breaks. After a period of writing songs for pop stars, Carr was jolted into action after the death of David Bowie, realising how important it was to take his art seriously. New Shapes of Life, therefore came from a completely clean slate with Carr putting his heart and soul into the project.

Carta
The Sand Collector's Dream

A ten track release from the really really sad (apparently) US based band Carta. Their fourth record that makes you want to think about every little thing you've ever said or done to anybody and apologise with your hearts' greatest meaning. The Sand Collector's Dream is available on Vinyl LP and is released on Saint Marie. 

Sephine Llo
I, Your Moon

I, Your Moon is the debut release (unless you're counting her previous EP) from Sephine Llo. From roots in classical music both from pure enjoyment and via academia, this record is a breath of fresh air. Not only that, the entirety of the release if dedicated to her husband who passed away weeks after discovering they were expecting a baby. As you can imagine, the record is full of genuine passion. Available on vinyl LP and CD, and released on Tape Club. 

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart
The Echo Of Pleasure

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart return with their fourth full-length album, the moodily titled The Echo of Pleasure. The band’s sweet melodies and synthy wall of sound production style is all comfortably in place, but some of the childish matters of the heart that drove earlier Pains songs have been replaced with a mature depth of feeling, borne out of frontman Kip’s impending fatherhood. Out on Painbow.
