EYE
Metamujer

Laurène Exposito returns with her EYE project, recorded in a number of locations around Europe and ruminating on living life in a minimalistic fashion. The eight tracks that constitute Metamujer see Exposito sing in Italian and add ever more elements into her sonic mix, which somehow remains as minimalistic as ever. 

OMMA
1905

Born in Moscow, electronic artist Olga Maximova - who records under the name OMMA - releases her latest album 1905 on Parisian label Antinote. Her ten years in recording and performance artistry - her live show includes a number of DIY-constructed insturments - are plain to hear, and it follows her debut album Teplo last year. 

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’.

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.

Beck
Odelay

Beck's famed record of folk pop, hip-hop and gleeful harmonica turntablism gets a reissue through its original label Bong Load! This alternative gem crossed a lot of paths, each united under the boy's smirky vocal, blending the mainstreams of rock and electronic into one neat package. A now old-school classic from the guy who will be a head-in-a-jar come the year 3000.

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.

David Bowie
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars

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. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars needs no introduction, being one of the best-known albums of an enormous cultural icon. This release uses the 2012 remastered versions of the tracks.

Heaven's Club
Here There and Nowhere

Heaven's Club is the thing Shiv Mehra does when not touring and recording with his other project Deafheaven. See the titular connection? In this project he collaborates with many others to make a more ethereal, atmospheric sound which are borne out of deep-seated longing at work in their poetic and displaced lyricism. An album length fog of beauty and urgency, ripe for picking.    

Marble Arch
Children Of The Slump

Yann Le Razavet’s Marble Arch project first came to wider prominence back in 2015, when fashion designer Hedi Slimane selected his music for his Saint-Laurent Paris sessions shoot. His indie-inflected bedroom-pop sound has mutated and evolved since to give us Children of the Slump, which Le Razavet credits as his “first real album”.

Mr Ben & The Bens
Who Knows Jenny Jones

Mr Ben and the Bens is a man called Ben (naturally) who used to live in Lancaster (and so is mates with the Lovely Eggs) and now resides in Sheffield which is well known for its indie guitar scene. This album shows Mr Ben taking his indie folk song craft into more electronic areas and is a concept album about a failure of a girl who gets abducted by aliens and comes back as a disco dancer. Interesting.

Oliver Spalding
Novemberism

Set your watches as November is on its way and it could well be a perfect time to listen to this debut LP by Oliver Spalding. He says that Novemberism is about being as miserable all the year round as you are in November which is a terrible thought. His music though could help soothe your worry and is R&B influenced electronic melancholy with nods towards Bjork and New Order.

The Hit Parade
The Golden Age of Pop

Pop. What even is it? Many different things to many different people but the pop The Hit Parade talk about is the 60s sort of jangling guitars, melodic vocals and lovelorn lyrics. They have made it their life's work to try to recreate this sound on something of a shoestring. The Golden Age of Pop is their latest burst of activity and comes with a free comic (about pop naturally).

Oscar Scheller
HTTP404

Once touted as the saviour of British pop in some quarters, songwriter-for-hire and producer Oscar Scheller returns with his sophomore album HTTP404. Boasting collaborations with Lily Allen, Ashnikko and Sarah Midori Perri of Kero Kero Bonito, it promises a more reflective take on the exuberance of his debut Cut & Paste.

Current Affairs
Object & Subject

Current Affairs sound like they might have been a skinny tied new wave band but no they are from now and they are from Glasgow. They feature members of the likes of Anxiety, the Royal We and Shopping and make scratchy, semi-discordant post-punk just ripe to headline your Wharf Chambers all dayer with gothy/soulful vocals atop future party tunes.

Gary Numan
The Pleasure Principle – The First Recordings

The Pleasure Principle - The First Recordings is a bunch of demos and outtakes from the sessions that produced Gary Numan’s first solo album. The songs were recorded mid-April, 1979, whilst Tubeway Army’s second album, Replicas, was residing at number one in the album charts. Numan decided to drop the Tubeway Army name and release the album under his own (stage) name.

Gary Numan
Replicas – The First Recordings

The second and final album from Gary Numan’s band Tubeway Army before Numan embarked on his celebrated (and ongoing) solo career, Replicas housed the UK chart-topping hit ‘Are Friends Electric?’ Now, the early sessions for the seminal record, including a John Peel session, are exhumed and presented on double ‘sage green’ vinyl.

Lady Gaga
ARTPOP

ARTPOP (must be in caps!) was the third album by Lady Gaga, from way back in 2013 when the world was still relatively normal. She began recording the album whilst recovering from an injury sustained whilst touring her previous album Born This Way. Perhaps she decided to emulate Iggy Pop circa Metallic K.O. Contains the singles Applause, Do What U Want and G.U.Y.

Holy Fuck
Deleter

Deleter is the fifth album by Canadian Electronica band with the naughty name, Holy Fuck.The album goes from reletively minimal sounds to rapturous crescendo via krautrock’s motorik beats to deep house. Features guest performances from Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, Angus Andrew of Liars and Nick Allbrook from Aussie band Pond.

Liz Lawrence
Pity Party

Liz Lawrence is one half of electro-pop duo Cash + David (She’s David) and has collaborated with London indie band Bombay Bicycle Club, who have in turn worked on her music. Pity Party is her latest album, and this is a truly solo venture. As well as writing and performing it all, she forced herself into the producer’s chair for the first time, an initially uncomfortable seat which ultimately reaped great rewards.

Gorillaz
Plastic Beach

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.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Architecture & Morality

Good time to be an Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark fan: to celebrate forty years on from the group’s activities, some nice reissues have been put together. Architecture & Morality, from 1981, is one of their very greatest releases, making a huge impact on British synth-pop. Also, a great album from fans of the mellotron.

Pulp
His 'n' Hers (25th Anniversary Edition)

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

On purple coloured vinyl (though they missed a trick not calling it black cherry coloured), you also get a 12 x 12 art print for your troubles. Black Cherry was Goldfrapp's second album following on from the very successful Felt Mountain and adds in synth-pop and glam influences into their luxury brand of electronic pop.

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.

Sin Fang
Sad Party

Sing Fan (aka Sindri Már Sigfússon) is an Icelandic alt-rock pioneer, returning with bittersweet experimental pop album 'Sad Party'. Recorded by Sigfússon alone in an old wooden studio in Reykjavík, this is a highly introspective piece - which builds in pace, before a melancholic conclusion creates an ambiguous ending.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Blossoms
Foolish Loving Spaces

As a 'celebration of love' in all its guises, Blossoms return with their most mature offering to date - 'Foolish Loving Spaces'. As the five-piece's fifth album, tracks are characterised by their trademark harmonies between intertwining arcade synths and twitchy guitars. Highly anticipated stuff from one of biggest modern day indie wave-makers.

SebastiAn
Total

This was the debut album from French electronic artist SebastiAn who you can see kissing himself on the sleeve art. He probably should have also kissed Daft Punk whose sound this isn't all that far away from. An eclectic romp through disco synth and electronica, it was heralded as one of the Dance albums of the year on release. It has literally loads of songs which Because Music have spread over a 2LP + CD re-issue.

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.

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,

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. 

Sparks
Past Tense - The Best of Sparks

Will you just look at them. In no way does that sleeve represent the quality of (most of) the music represented here. Sparks have been going for fifty goddamn years moving through glam-rock, disco, synth pop, neo-classical, avant-garde or whatever they decided they would do that day. This is their first ever career retrospective ranging from 1967 to 2017's rather good Hippopotamus. I'd say more Sparks than you ever need but the truth is you can never get enough Sparks.

Sparks
Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins

Sparks have done many great things over the course of their forty plus years in show business none of which was the title of this their sixteenth album originally released in 1994. It was their first album in six years which is a long time for these prolific brothers so it was gratefully lapped up by both long term fans and those who had come to the band courtesy of the Brit-pop likes of Pulp and Suede who both had a bit of Sparks showmanship in their bones.

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Loverboy

Looks like a load of Ariel Pink albums are coming back out on 2LP vinyl and here is his 2006 album Loverboy. Though it was his sixth album, it was part of his series of early lo-fi works which pretty much gave carte blanche to anyone wanting to re-work soft rock, funk and '60s pop into their own strange shapes. Loads of people followed but Ariel Pink did this stuff first.

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Underground

Part of his initial big burst of activity between 1998 and 2007, Underground is the album that everyone forgot. Look for it on Wikipedia...I've tried and I've failed. Anyway it was his inaugural release of his initial barrage of creativity originally self released in 1999 before getting a proper release around 2007. Early Ariel Pink - can't be an easy listen but always fascinating.

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?

Sparrows is Ryota Miyake from Japanese synth group Crystal.

All together it comes out as oddball yet sweet psych pop, ideal for soundtracking a road trip.

The Divine Comedy
Infernal Machines / You'll Never Work In This Town Again

The Divine Comedy’s recent album Office Politics was their highest charting album, which surprises me given their success in the late ‘90s. I guess it shows that Neil Hannon has still got it. Infernal Machines / You’ll Never Work In This Town Again is a double A sided single, with both tracks lifted from Office Politics.

Pet Shop Boys featuring Years & Years
Dreamland

As the lead single from an upcoming album, electro-pop royalty Pet Shop Boys team up with Years and Years on 'Dreamland'. It's no real departure from the shimmering, tried and tested 80's synthy formula - which contrasts the track's grimey and grungy subway-themed video. Quintessential for synth-wave addicts of all ages.

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish's debut EP 'Don't Smile at Me' was only dropped in 2017, but her almost overnight rise since then has been no less than stratospheric. Typically direct, witchy and powerful, this breakthrough release is where it all began for one of the biggest and most original emerging stars of recent years.

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.

Teenage Fanclub
Man-Made

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

Metronomy
Love Letters

To this writer (and please forgive my bias) this was their best record. Predecessor The English Riviera may have had the consistently great tunes and dance-pop moves that saw it reach near iconic status but Love Letters was a more out-there experimental work that ranged from Motown pop (the title track) to introspective yearning (I'm Aquarius) to superb shimmering jangle pop that brought to mind the likes of Love and the Teardrop Explodes. Not particularly a fan favourite it seems but Love Letters is a diverse and fascinating document.

The album arguably represented the group’s most successful attempt to embrace different sounds into their modernist pop aesthetic.

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.

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.

Gary Numan
Dance

Gary Numan’s fifth album, 1981’s  Dance, gets a much-needed reissue. After squishing the original 50 minute album onto one LP, compromising the sound of the recording, it now gets room to breathe over three sides of vinyl, with a fourth side being filled with singles from the era. Numan’s famed electro-pop gave way to some jazzier stuff as he introduced saxophones to the album. Guests include Mick Karn from Japan and Roger Taylor from Queen. Purple vinyl 2LP on Beggars Banquet

It includes "The State I Am In", which would later appear on their debut record 'Tigermilk', but for the most part these are rare standalone Belle and Sebastian tunes.

Dreams To Fill The Vacuum – The Sound Of Sheffield 1978-1988

Cherry Red Records do the best box sets, hands down. The revived label strikes gold again with Dreams To Fill The Vacuum, documenting a decade of Sheffield’s underground music scene from 1978 to 1988, spanning pioneering electronic music to vintage indie. Four CDs house tracks from commercially successful luminaries like The Human League and ABC to cult artists such as The Danse Society, Clock DVA and Kilgore Trout, along with a whole host of essays and memoirs from key players in the scene in a hardback book. 

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.

Björk / Fever Ray / The Knife
Country Creatures

Ooph this is rather heavy on the ‎Karin Dreijer. She appears as both Fever Ray and part of the Knife on this remix 12" of Bjork's Country Creatures. Yet each track is different- one moody and introspective, one bouncy and pulsating. As a return favour Bjork has remixed a Fever Ray track which will come out separately. Who says the Swedes and the Icelanders don't get on?

C86

C Eighty-Bloody-Six. The thing that really kickstarted the jangling and swaying indie scene. Today we say C86 for anything that sounds a bit strummy and fey but that does a disservice to the diversity of the collection which includes such non cuties as Stump, Bogshed and A Witness. Still there are so many indie thrills here that any indie-pop loving home should have one. This is the 3CD extended box set which includes pretty much anyone who strummed a guitar longingly in 1986.

Cate Le Bon
Reward

You know what? Everything Cate Le Bon involves herself in is of interest. Le Bon’s previous work has encompassed all manner of sounds and quirks; think pop music with a difference. The far-afield sounds of psychedelia, art pop, indie rock and pop meet with wistful guitar lines, fanciful vocals, intriguing lyrics and melodies which skip and wander. Quirky and beautiful songs, delivered with Le Bon's distinct Welsh Valleys lilt.

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.

Bedchamber
Geography

Some lovely shoegazey indie from Indonesian group Bedchamber here. The band’s debut LP Geography does a good line in post-Real Estate dream-pop, all will-o’-the-wisp guitars and gently sighing vocals. From time to time the band ratchet it up a gear to lock into something more sprightly - quicksilver tracks like ‘Falter’ and 'Ride' have more in common with Diiv. All in all Geography is a delightful thing.

The Xcerts
In The Cold Wind We Smile

If anyone can remember this album originally being released then maybe this is a cause of celebration. The Xcerts debut In The Cold Wind We Smile has reached a landmark ten years old and as a result fans are treated to a new vinyl pressing which includes a poster and a download card for 13 bonus tracks. In case you don't know, the Xcerts are a four piece alternate rock band out of Aberdeen Scotland. I'm going to Aberdeen soon, I'll ask after them.

Lazarus Kane
Narcissus

As a heady slab of swirling pop-funk, 'Narcissus' is the latest brainchild of buzzy indie wave-maker Lazarus Kane. Apparently all recorded in just one take, the New Yorker didn't stop the recording until "his kimono was soaked through with the sweat of pure, unbridled emotion". The result is a thought-provoking stew of wirey synths, a hectic drum machine and a sizable dose of deep lyricism.

Chandra
Transportation EPs

Not to be cynical, but I suppose one of the perks of being the child of a world famous conceptual artist is a show at CBGB when you're 12. Despite that, Chandra's 1980 Transportation EP still sounds pretty sharp, lying within the perfect New York storm of post-punk/no-wave/disco. This release also comes with a second EP that was never released, recorded in 1983.

Molly Nilsson
Twenty Twenty

Eighth album from Molly Nilsson’ the hippest purveyor of urban melancholy via fond-memory synth-pop in quite some time. Twenty Twenty takes a look at the world as it currently, and channels those difficult feels through her keyboards and her distant-sounding vocals and lyrics. Released by Night School.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Isobel Campbell
There Is No Other...

Isobel Campbell started out in Belle & Sebastian before recording under the name The Gentle Waves. She has also released three critically acclaimed albums with Mark Lanegan of Screaming Trees. Her new solo album, There Is No Other… has been a while in coming, but Campbell says she likes to take her time and do things properly. The speed that the world is moving makes her want to take more time over the things she loves. 

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.

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.

  • 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.

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

Hatchie
Keepsake

Hatchie is the stage name of Brisbane songwriter Harriette Pilbeam so you can sort of see why she's not using her birth name for this project. This is her debut album after an earlier well received EP. She uses a varied sonic palette with synthpop, ethereal guitars, industrial textures and new wave all featuring leading to a powerful sound that is already gaining her lots of plaudits.   

Moloko
I Am Not A Doctor

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

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.

Prefab Sprout
A Life Of Surprises: The Best Of

A double-album re-issue of A Life of Surprises, the 1992 compilation from often-overlooked English pop band Prefab Sprout. Spanning their first five studio albums, from 1984’s Swoon to 1990’s Jordan: The Comeback, plus two exclusive singles ‘The Sound of Crying’ and ‘If You Don’t Love Me’. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Smoke Fairies
Darkness Brings The Wonders Home

Smoke Fairies are back with Darkness Brings The Wonders Home - their first album in five years. The starting point was the woodsy folk of their debut Through Low Light And Trees. They found their performances had a new boldness, however. This coupled with some exciting visits to a guitar shop near producer Phil Ek’s studio meant more guitars and new sounds were added to that sound.

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.

  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Ocean Colour Scene
Moseley Shoals

This is the one isn't it? This is the record which led to my demise when working for a world famous Leeds record store. I was told  - in no uncertain terms  - that I couldn't publicly admit to hating Ocean Colour Scene as they "paid my wages". Thanks guys. Anyway hopefully a few sales of this their dismal but universally popular second album will help make it worth getting out of bed to go to work on 16th April. It's the one with all the songs that made them heroes to Brit pop such as 'The Riverboat Song' which you'll know if you've ever been forced to watch 'TFI Friday'.

Ben Watt
Storm Damage

New album from Mr Tracey Thorn as he eschews the organic sound of his previous two solo LPs with a much more bold and out there sonic experimentation. Remember that Ben Watt was producing electronic work in the latter days of Everything But the Girl and here he creates a unique trio of piano, double bass and drum kit to play songs inspired both by personal and political upheaval. Low's Alan Sparhawk guests.

Automatic
Signal

Not to be confused with the utterly cack mid-Noughties band responsible for the irritating ‘Monster’, this Automatic are a three-piece from Los Angeles who’ve gained a reputation for their incendiary live shows, inspired by psychedelia and punk. Signal is their debut studio album, and comes in a special indies-only red vinyl version. 

The Monochrome Set
Fabula Mendax

Riding in on the first wave of post-punk (apologies for the inappropriate surfing analogy), The Monochrome Set got the ears and tongues of Edwyn Collins and Morrissey (back when people still respected him) wagging. The band have also been an influence on Graham Coxon, Divine Comedy and Franz Ferdinand. Their latest album Fabula Mendex, is based on the scribblings of Armande de Pange who was a pal of Joan Of Arc. History and indie pop all at once.

Faux Pas / Uncle Buzzard
That's My Ego / Big Cat

The new singles by Manchester-based indie punks Faux Pas and Leeds-based psych-po 5-piece Uncle Buzzard, come together as a double A-sided 7”. 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.

Sui Zhen
Losing, Linda

Melbourne-based musician Sui Zhen delivers her second studio album, following three years on from her compelling debut Secretly Susan. Inspired by the passing of her mother, Losing, Linda is a deeply moving album concerning loss, not just on a personal, literal level but also on a societal and environmental plane. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.

Jazzateers
Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey

Jazzateers are an indie band from Glasgow whose origins are in the Postcard Records stable along with the likes of Orange Juice and Josef K. Their story is an up and down one, littered with unreleased albums, splits and reformations which meant they never quite made it like they perhaps should have done. Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey is an album they recorded when things seemed to be on the up, touring with Lloyd Cole and with their single, Pressing On, being given the single of the week accolade in the NME. The album was then, in true Jazzateers fashion, never released - until now! Maybe now is their time to shine.

Dope Lemon
Smooth Big Cat

Dope Lemon is a project from Angus Stone. 'Smooth Big Cat' is the second album under this moniker from Stone. You may remember him as one half of Australian duo Angus & Julia Stone. They played some laid back folk-pop. 'Dope Lemon' is also very laid back but with a little more hazy, lazy, fuzz around the edges.

Janelle Monae
Dirty Computer

Inventive, trend-bending hip-pop soulsmith Janelle Monáe returns with a host of collaborators for Dirty Computer. Her first album in five years finds her celebrating the spectra of sexuality with rubbery pop - some of which co-written by the late Prince himself. The album also hosts the dulcet tones of Brian Wilson, Zoë Kravitz, Grimes and Pharrell Williams.

Boy & Bear
Suck On Light

Suck On Light is the fourth album by Australian indie rock/folk combo, Boy & Bear. Their frontman, Dave Hosking, suffered from illness. The album was recorded with producer Colin Dupuis and charts his difficult road back to good health and also expresses the euphoria of being fit and well once more. Good on ya, Dave!

Super Furry Animals
Radiator (20th Anniversary Remaster)

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

The Go! Team
Thunder, Lightning, Strike

The Go Team's 2004 debut arrived like a hurricane with insanely catchy tunes mixing indie-pop, soul, funk and hip-hop into a life affirming sonic stew. Now 15 years later it gets the re-issue treatment and unsurprisingly it sounds just as fresh today as when it first burst out of the traps. For the uninitiated, think a more indie-pop fixated the Avalanches. Fun all the way.

Nina Atsuko
Play Room

As a rare slice of 80's urban jazz fusion, Nina Atsuko's 'Play Room' very much glided the wave of the big Japanese city pop revival, but with the singer-songwriter's very own unique slant on things. Nearly 40 years since its original release, this 10-track-long piece is a real Japanese city pop gem waiting to be re-discovered.

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.

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

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.
