Yoke Lore
Goodpain EP

Adrian Galvin of Yoke Lore is back, with his Goodpain EP for Independent Label Alliance. The Brooklyn-based songwriter -- of Yellerkin and Walk the Moon -- garnered rave reviews for his 2016 debut ‘Far Shore’ and many millions of legit internet streams. Righteous. His ‘dazzling, deconstructed psych-pop’ has seen him compared favourably to Panda Bear. For fans of Animal Collective, then. 10” ‘bone-coloured’ vinyl. Well.

TEA
Everybody's Happy Sometimes

Another indie pop release from the now reconstituted A Turntable Friend. TEA are a duo from the Isle of Man who are said to peddle indie pop that sits somewhere between the Field Mice and the Beloved. This was initially due in 1999 but is probably better off coming out in the more indie-pop friendly 2017. All profits to Stop Hate too.

Martha
Courting Strong

Martha are surely Pity Me's most potent pop-punk band who through a lot of touring have built themselves a rather large and rabid fanbase. Courting Strong was their debut album and comes across as if Weezer were a bunch of excitable northern vegans who liked nothing better than to write energetic tunes about love gone askew and their dislike for right-leaning politics. 

The Hayman Kupa Band
The Hayman Kupa Band

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 Stevens
Good

The Stevens might have the sort of name that is easy to forget but we think you might like their music. You certainly will if you like brash and melodic power pop. 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.  

Avey Tare
Eucalyptus

Oh to be an Animal Collective fan and have this constant stream of music coming at you. Here's the latest solo release from their Avey Tare which is produced by another one from the collective Deakin and is self-described as an electro-acoustic movement through leaves rock and dust made in sunlight LA bedrooms.

Johnny Jewel
Windswept

Johnny Jewel’s dark disco has adorned many soundtracks including Drive and Lost River. His new album features a load of unreleased solo material, including few of his works for the third season of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. Includes a couple tracks with his groups Desire and Chromatics. 80s Bohren und der Club of Gore in dystopian lounge setting.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Hulaboy / The Safe Distance
Split

Here's one of those good old fashioned split albums and both sides feature former Boyracer and current Emotional Response honcho Sir Stewart Anderson. Hulaboy is his long running collaboration with Eric Stoess of Hulahoop and they make bittersweet pop with nods towards Postcard and Flying Nun. Over on the flip is the Safe Distance, a band he formed with Simon 'Crayola' Williams of Sarandon, Crayola etc. They make scratty 80s indie with Bogshed/the Ron Johnson roster as influences.  
  • Genre(s):

Mondo Cozmo
Plastic Soul

From a landscape gardener to a true gem in the underground pop-rock scene, Mondo Cozmo has become a chart topping artist in the US. His moody vocals and relaxed backing music give a recognisable theme to his music- think Primal Scream of the future. Plastic Soul is available on vinyl LP and CD, on ‘Island’.

Minimalist darkened pop songs, with hints of Dead Can Dance instrumentations and nods to Phillip Glass. Sóley is equally capable of picking you up as she is at pulling you down.

The Television Personalities
They Could Have Been Bigger Than The Beatles

They Could Have Been Bigger Than The Beatles was a collection of singles, rare tracks and outtakes that was put together to mark what was seemingly the end of the Television Personalities. Though the band subsequently regrouped and released a host of further albums, this collection is an essential document of their early day DIY creativity. 
  • Genre(s):

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. It receives a very handsome black / marbled white vinyl reissue here, courtesy of the Fire label.

Television Personalities
Mummy You're Not Watching Me

Eighties underground post-punk group Television Personalities were a key part of the scene, lead by Dan Treacy’s smart lyrics and songcraft. Mummy You’re Not Watching Me is their second record, released in 1982 and packed full of special little indie pop songs. It’s getting a very handsome black / marbled white vinyl reissue here, courtesy of the Fire label.

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). 
  • Label(s):
  • BMG

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.

Florence Raynaud
Singes

Florence Raynaud, the frontwoman of Croque Madame, here presents her first solo release, a 7” single. Singes is centred around Raynaud’s highly characterful French language vocals, with a cluster of strings and piano and bouncy pop rhythm section around her. A very strong debut. 7” single on Emotional Response.

Bressa Creeting Cake
Bressa Creeting Cake

Bressa Creeting Cake’s self-titled debut album arrived on New Zealand’s crucial Flying Nun label in 1997, ready to amaze and surprise people with their unusual stylistic mixture. Prog rock, psychedelic and underground indie pop all play a role, with the band using stacks of ideas on each song. Double LP on Flying Nun.

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.  

The Last Of The Lovely Days
Just A Chance / There Are No Words

The Last Of The Lovely Days are a new post-punk group built around the songs of Annie O’Rourke and also featuring musicians from The Others and Smile Down Upon Us. They make their debut with this double A-side 7” single of big melodic action. Just A Chance / There Are No Words is released by Just Lust Records.

Lana Del Rey
Lust For Life

Now where have I heard that title before? Nope. It's not coming. Anyway here is global superstar Lana Del Ray with her guest straddled fourth album. The Weeknd, A$AP Rock and Stevie Nicks all make appearances here and its absolutely heartwarming to see her grinning away on the sleeve.

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.

Haim
Something To Tell You

America's favourite sister act, Haim, are back with Something To Tell You - the release of their sophomore album. The eleven-track offering, containing lead single 'I Want You Back', sees the trio build upon a critically-acclaimed debut with exciting, forward-thinking and bold songwriting.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.  

Various
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. 

RAC
EGO

RAC (Remix Artist Collective), setup and lead by André Allen Anjos drops his new full length album on Counter Records.

Featuring Rivers Cuomo, Chaos Chaos, MNDR, Rostam, St. Lucia, Jordan Corey, Karl Kling and many more.

Fos
Captain Free

This is the third album by Greek-born artist Katerina Koutouzi also known as Fos, entitled Captain Free. The record takes you through what can only be described as a soundscape of acoustic-electro and experimental pop, combined with a solid use of airy vocals and synths.  The record is released on her own label ‘Near The Exit Music’, and is available on Vinyl LP.

Washed Out
Mister Mellow

Washed Out’s new album of bright and dreamy summer pop-not-pop arrives with a full-length visual accompaniment, in which each of Mister Mellow’s dozen tracks is matched with a different medium of visual moving art. It's a great addition to  the Washed Out aesthetic, which is very much alive and well in the audio. Mister Mellow is released by Stones Throw.
  • Genre(s):

C Duncan
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.

Various
C88 - Deluxe 3CD Box Set

C88 continues a fruitful series of compilations in the wake of the seminal NME C86 tape, summing up the bustling underground indie scene of the late 80’s. C88 contains three discs and seventy-one tracks worth of fine material from artists as varied as The Stone Roses, Choo Choo Train, and Apple Boutique, along with a thick and informative booklet. On Cherry Red.

Soko
My Dreams Dictate My Reality

Produced by the legendary Ross Robinson (The Cure), ‘My Dreams Dictate My Reality’ is singer songwriter Soko’s follow up to her melancholic folk album debut ‘I Thought I Was An Alien’. The album includes two hypnotic collaborative tracks (‘Monster Love’ and ‘Lovetrap’) with lo-fi troubadour Ariel Pink.

C Duncan
Architect

Available on LP or CD on FatCat records. This is the wondrous debut album from sun-dappled Glaswegian C Duncan. 'Architect' is a fantastic album just waiting be be played on your stereo through summer. Will appeal to fans of Django Django, Sufjan Stevens and last years pop master Stephen Steinbrink.   

Francis MacDonald & Harry Pye
Bonjour

Well this is nice. It's nice to be nice. Francis McDonald is drummer from those happy little jumper boys Teenage Fanclub and here he is writing songs with London based artist Harry Pye (mmm Pye). They sing sweet songs about everyone from Jean Luc Goddard to Mike Love in that unashamedly tuneful cardigan-friendly style of Camera Obscura and Belle and Sebastien.

Grace Sings Sludge
Life With Dick

Grace Sings Sludge is the solo outing of Grace Cooper of The Sandwitches and The Fresh and Onlys, recorded at home where the full intensity of Grace’s yearning and unsettled lyrics can be properly expressed. Life With Dick, which is adorned with some of Grace’s watercolour artwork, is released by Empty Cellar.

Toro Y Moi
Boo Boo

It really is about time Toro Y Moi made a good record. This one comes after a period of self reflection presumably after he realised how bad his previous record What For? was. Taking influence from artists ranging from Gigi Masin to Frank Ocean, initial impressions seem to be more R&B influenced with the dreaded autotune on show. You never show. If he ever does anything as good as Underneath the Pines again I will prepare my hat and eat it.

Declan McKenna
What Do You Think About the Car?

Oh lord he's going to be a star isn't he? Just look at that album sleeve. Please calm down ladies (and gents). On first listen his songs sound worryingly good. Tuneful indie-pop sitting somewhere between Jake Bugg and Mac De Marco. Tuneful and singalong enough to appeal to the youth but also plenty of self cocking respect. Watch him go.

The first properly distributed LP by lo-fi pop hopeful Kane Strang who writes catchy and radio ready themes that would appeal to fans of Car Seat Headrest and Alex G. These are slick and polished vignettes which could see Strang become your new favourite 90’s slacker revivalist. Out on the increasingly powerful Dead Oceans.

Lifetime of Love

Finally, Deerhunter's sticks-man Moses John Archuleta is releasing his first solo album, as Moon Diagrams. It took Archuleta 10 years to assemble Lifetime of Love.

Donnie & Joe Emerson
Dreamin' Wild

Ariel Pink has a lot to answer for, but one of the better things to have come from his meddling has been the resurrection of Donnie & Joe Emerson - Pink’s cover of the duo’s haunting ‘Baby’ was the song of Summer 2012. Off the back of ‘Baby’s success, and bolstered by the evangelism of record collector Jack Fleischer, we now get a Light In The Attic reissue of the Emerson Bro’s Dreamin’ Wild. A private-press LP released way back in 1979, the young Emersons wrote and cut Dreamin’ Wild in a practice space on their isolated Washington farm. Perhaps the fact that the brothers were so much in their own world at that time is what gives this record such a suspended, otherworldly feel. A unique album.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Wild Belle
Isles

Wild Belle are brother-sister duo Natalie and Elliot Bergman - relations to Ingmar remain unconfirmed, but we’re gonna guess not. On their debut LP Isles the siblings whip up a selection of well-heeled, somewhat retro alt-pop. Cuts like ‘Another Girl’ (which isn’t a Jacques Greene cover) have the half-remembered doo-wop sound of Melody’s Echo Chamber and Angel Olsen down to a T, while a few of Isles' other numbers have a bit of a cod reggae thing going on.
  • Genre(s):

Flotation Toy Warning
The Machine That Made Us

London based five piece Flotation Toy Warning return with their second full length album thirteen years after the first. The Machine That Made Us is a glorious spaced out trip through indie pop with all the warmth and comfort of home. There are elements of Spiritualised and lo-fi pop with odd instrumentation and choral grace.

Jackie Lynn

Jackie Lynn is a fictional construct, written and sung into being by Haley Fohr of Circuit des Yeux.

Vocoder heavy synth pop from two primary school teachers on William Burnett’s W.T. label. One half of Teachers is acid house and techno producer Tagwell Woods.

Frankie Rose
Cage Tropical

Frankie Rose has been around a bit having been a member of Dum Dum Girls, Crystal Stilts and Vivian Girls. This is her third solo album and initial clues to it's sound would suggest the sort of tightly knit kraut-pop similar to that recently made successful by the likes of Jane Weaver with synths and Neu -ike drums in abundance. 

Vinyl Williams
Into

Remarkable album this for the solo project of a 25-year-old. Although to be fair Vinyl Williams gets that surname from John Williams the film composer. That would explain some of the impressively grand sprawl that he has managed to pull together for Into’s fourteen tracks, none of which contain a note not written and performed by Williams himself. My my.

The Primitives
Spin-o-rama

The Primitives are so jangle pop that they named one of their compilation records 'The Lazy Recordings'; eat that up, indie rock slackers. They've recently woken from their slumber to release a couple of singles, but 'Spin-o-rama' is the real deal, a new full-length of late '80s/early '90s melodies, raucous guitar and lethargic confidence.

Abram Shook

Love at Low Speed is an especially personal collection of songs by Abram Shook, delving into the end of an eleven year relationship with all the serious song-weight you’d expect from that. The music is gorgeous and fully-detailed, packed with sweet strings, groovy bass and Shook’s impressive tenor vocals. Released by Western Vinyl.

Wild Honey
Torres Blancas

The name Wild Honey would suggest a Beach Boys influence and the laid back grooves of their ‘Friends’ album is certainly evident but these laid back summery songs more recall Astrud Gilberto having a party round Stereolab’s house. The fact that Sean O Hagan (High Llamas) is on arrangement duties should tell you all you need to know.

Elbow
The Seldom Seen Kid

The Seldom Seen Kid was the fourth album by professional Mancunians (though actually from Bury) Elbow. The band are indeed as exciting as their name making emotional widescreen northern melancholy led by the gravel vocals of man mountain frontman Guy Garvey. There's also an appearance by fellow Northern soak Richard Hawley on what is ne of the best examples of their three-pints-down-the-line-and-head-on-the-table weep rock.

The Pipettes
Earth Vs The Pipettes

The Pipettes were known initially for their '69s girl group stylings and sounds that took something from the likes of the Phil Spector girl groups. In fact the whole thing was the brainchild of a sinister male protagonist Monster Bobby. Bt the time of their second album Earth Vs The Pipettes they'd dropped their earlier image in favour of something a bit more...well.. raunchy. Notable for containing an early version of Gwenno Saunders (now trading as Gwenno).
