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 Fiction Aisle
Heart Map Rubric

Sad bunch The Fiction Aisle wince the night away with a series of boldly sentimental indie pop tunes lit with the fiery guitars of Coldplay and Embrace plus the melodic delicacy of Death Cab and the Shins. This anthemic, twilit sound bridges that gap between towering post-Britpop Heart Map Republic and low-key rock, with hints of the band's beloved jazz and prog. That big music.

Karras
Municipal Dances

Karras is the pairing of two members of Maximo Park and The Rakes, stepping away from the smart indie rock their ‘main’ bands are known for with a debut album of instrumental pop, bustling with kitschy disco and pulsing krautrock influences. Municipal Dances show that the gambit has paid off: the sound is joyous and fun and brightly-textured. Out on Trestle Records.

Baio
Man Of The World

Baio, aka Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend, presents his second solo album, which, from its sleeve art presentation to its songwriting and production, dives straight into the shiny-sheened aesthetics of the 1980’s. Baio is obviously having fun here, with bright and lovely melodies backed up with pastel-coloured keyboards, guitar licks and multi-tracked vocals. Out on Glassnote.

Life In Film
Cold Wire

The debut single from much-hyped London band Life in Film proves that sometimes, hype is well deserved. This young indie band look like they could go far with this tight, well-crafted single, with elements of Johnny Marr’s guitar and Nick Cave’s angst. Keep an eye out for the album dropping in early May 2015. Vinyl 7".

Shrag
On The Spines Of Old Cathedrals

Limited edition single taken from Shrag’s third album Canines. Joyful harmonies and influences including New Order and Chic make for an upbeat track which brings to mind hot summer’s days and the feeling that you get when you feel unstoppable. Lyrically brilliant from Helen King. 7” vinyl.

School Damage
School Damage

Defined by off-kilter keyboard riffs and swerving basslines, brand new outfit School Damage are stamping their mark on leftfield Aussi-pop scenes. "I think the internet calls it a quarter life crisis" explains Carolyn Hawkins, on the motives behind her self-titled debut; hence why this piece provides the perfect piece of escapism from social anxiety.

Eyedress
Manila Ice

Being described as somewhere between Connan Moccasin and Frank Ocean is no mean feat, with previous releases on XL through their Abeano sublabel and working projects Bee Eyes and Mind Slums Lex records have snapped the 26 year old Filipino up for a full length. Expect woozy guitars and weird and loved up lyrics sung in a tin can.

Sprinters
Sprinters

Sprinters to all intents and purposes are Wigan's answer to Real Estate. Now based in marginally more fashionable Manchester, the group play a high octane form of janglesome indie pop which suggests that Wigan is the sunniest place on earth. If on the Manchester scene Horsebeach bring the murk and sad then Sprinters are a little bit more jolly. 

Alexis Taylor
Piano

Alexis Taylor steps away from the pop star spotlight of Hot Chip (or indeed the improv lamplight of About Group) for a subtle solo album in a shaded corner. Piano was recorded by Alexis alone, with just his voice and a grand piano, both untreated by effects. New songs and reimagined old ones alike. What a lovely, simple record. On Moshi Moshi.

Camille
Ouï

French pop singer Camille might be new to many, but with her debut being back in 2002 she is far from just a singer from Paris. Her tracks are always playful and performed with an almost childlike sense of innocent fun/silliness. Burps and raspberries are common place amongst serene harmonies and big drum percussion. Imagine Tom Waits and Bjork making a sweet pop record. On vinyl or CD via Because Music.

Sivu
Sweet Sweet Silent

'Sweet Sweet Silent' by Sivu is a sad but interesting story of singer James Page's struggle with something called Meniere’s syndrome, a disease of the inner ear which causes vertigo and eventual permanent loss of hearing, on this the follow up to 2014's ‘Something on High’ he faces the challenges of this head on with detuned instrumentation and experimentalism with a standard melodic song form, comparisons have been made to Amnesiac era Radiohead and Wild Beasts which makes for a dark but sweet style of indie rock/pop.

1115
Post-Europe

1115 are a bit of an enigma. Vocalist Fehler Kuti teaming up with the mysterious “Grey” (Julian Maison/G.E.F.) for their Post-Europe “Opera”. Dark, psychedelic, distubing yet playful, their debut full length is an artistically free no-man’s land -- hints of Nicolas Jaar, Arca, Dean Blunt, and Juan Atkins combine with ghost like vocals. Vinyl and CD on Alien Transistor.

Beach Fossils
Somersault

Beach Fossils present their first recorded work since 2013. Somersault is a heartfelt indie album from Brooklyn, notable for featuring guest vocals from Cities Aviv and Rachel Goswell of Slowdive!

Sweet Baboo
Wild Imagination

Welshman Stephen Black has multi-talented fingers in many pies, running his label Businessman, as well as playing on record with contemporaries such as Cate Le Bon, Slow Club, and Teleman. His solo project Sweet Baboo now comes back to Moshi Moshi with it’s 6th album. Approached as a positive antithesis to 2016 Wild Imagination is a soft pop bubble to protect you from this world.

Molly Nilsson
Imaginations

Swedish-born, Berlin-dwelling, world-travelling singer Molly Nilsson is deep into her career now, and she is still feeling melancholy. Imaginations puts her feelings into sweet synth-pop songs that swoon moodily in the way only Molly Nilsson songs can: cool, catchy, nostalgic and distant-eyed. Imaginations is released by Night School.

Pixx
Age of Anxiety

Debut album released by 4AD. Put this one in your bag with Fever Ray, Grimes, FKA Twigs, Youth Lagoon, and maybe Sonic Youth. Dusty and warbled near psychedelic electronic production have a post punk charge, a dash of krautrock, and a message of self identity and substance. Empowering, meticulous, as well as damn good fun.

Jesse Ruins
Fractured Holy Symmetry

'A Film' was a record by shoegazing, pop dreaming, electronica-tinkering band Jesse Ruins, and 'Fractured Holy Symmetry' is a companion piece for all those who loved it, featuring remixes by artists such as Soft Metals, Naliza Moo, Radio Friends and Diane Halls, as well as six new Jesse Ruins tracks.

Lake Komo
Thinktank

It’s new indie pop from Lake Komo with their debut 7”, Thinktank released on fledgling label Human Music. Lake Komo are based in Manchester and hail from Lancaster and Kendal. Their music is cold, electronic indie pop which feels synthetic, with even a bit of autotune in there to remind you of awful music from the early 2000s. Lovely.

Big French
Stone Fish

A second full-length album of the strange and personal weird-pop vision conjured up by Quentin Moore and the rest of the Big French crew. Stone Fish’s sixteen tracks are tight but wobbly, pirouetting quickly between different high-technique guitar parts, grooves and melodic ideas. Plus keen exploitation of quirks of the reel-to-reel tape recording medium! On Wharf Cat Records.

Napoleon IIIrd
The Great Lake

Napolean IIIrd (aka James Mabbett) has certainly clocked up the miles since his last album six years ago. He moved from Yorkshire to London (boo!) then back to Yorkshire (yaay!) and here has documented his experiences into a bold and brave record that deals with grief, humanity and hope over the course of five lengthy and intense tracks.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Peluché
The Guy With The Gammy Eye

More ecstatic musical adventure from Speedy Wunderground, here. Peluche take silvery guitar riffs a la Beach House and wrap them around proggy ambient textures that wouldn't be out of place on either an old Kayo Dot record or a newer Camel one, before a driving beat pushes the song into a psychedelic vortex. "The Guy With The Gammy Eye" makes no element of the process as its focus, even deliberating on the placement of its desperately reverberating vocals. A wonderful myriad of myriads. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

The Strokes
Comedown Machine

Comedown Machine was the Strokes album where, during the pre-publicity, bassist Nikolai Fraiture ventured from the usual 'this is our best album yet' party line to describe the recording process as 'awful' prompting the band to pull a media blackout and not do any promotional appearances. Listening to it, it's hard to tell that there were any problems at all. It's fresh and smart and sexy and strange. Though the long help feeling is that they'll never again reach Is This It' heights, Comedown Machine proved that the Strokes were still genuinely trying to make good music.   

Mt. Wolf
Aetherlight

Comparisons will be made, Sigur Ros being one of the most frequently-drawn similarities, but the truth is Mt. Wolf are onto something original. Aetherlight is their debut offering and it's a record that simmers away, constantly threatening to boil over into chaos. Don't take this thirteen-track lightly...

Ben Lee
Awake Is The New Sleep

Awake is the New Sleep was Australian wonderkid, singer/songwriter and Evan Dando admirer, Ben Lee's fifth album and was originally released in 2005.

Malcolm Middleton
You & I

A taster for his forthcoming 'Summer of '13' record this 7" contains three new tracks from the former Arab Strap bloke with his cheeky brand of Scottish pop. On Nude. I had no idea that label was still going. You learn something every single day including how to flub your way to a word limit.

Virginia Wing
Rhonda

Probably one of the better Record Store Day releases this year, ace London quartet Virginia Wing tease you a couple of new tracks from what will be their brand new record in due course. If it's anything like the last one it will appeal to fans of Broadcast, Stereolab and fans of all things kraut and pop.

Grubs
It Must Be Grubs

Superband three piece Grubs are Roxy (Two White Cranes, Towel, Joanna Gruesome) drummer Jake and Owen (Caramel, Joanna Gruesome). Their debut ‘It Must Be Grubs’ is a very limited co release from the excellent, home grown Tuff Enuff and Reeks Of Effort record labels. Grubs music consists of beautifully crafted, vocal lead harmonic pop songs over economical rhythms that sound simple but probably were really hard to write.

Matthew Edwards & The Unfortunates
Folklore

Depicting Matthew Edward’s return to England, and Birmingham after living in California for two decades, the follow up to 2012’s The Fate, Folklore shares a loving theme reflecting the previous work’s title.

Featuring guest players  who have worked with the likes of PJ Harvey, Brian Eno, and Captain Beefheart.

Soley
Endless Summer

The Flaming Lips
The Flaming Lips Onboard the International Space Station Concert for Peace

Bleachers
Gone Now

Jack Antonoff (previously of Fun. and Steel Train) went solo as Bleachers, writing for Taylor Swift’s 1989 and releasing his debut full length in 2014.

Ela Orleans
Circles Of Upper and Lower Hell

This is surely the most grandiose and bold statement in the musical career of the Polish born, Glasgow-based musician Ela Orleans. A varied amalgamation of all her previous work is presented as a sprawling double LP which is apparently loosely based on Dante's Inferno. Expect celestial ghostly pop songs, synthy textures and the grandest of grand visions.

Billie Marten
Milk & Honey

Nice ethereal acoustic twiddlings from silky-voiced Ripon-based songstress Isabella Sophie Tweddle, aka Billie Marten. A Youtube sensation at the age of 12, Marten is now getting some serious attention, including a nomination for BBC Sound of 2016. And she's still only 17. According to her Wikipedia page she is, apparently, obsessed with alpacas. Interesting, but there's no mention of any llama-like shenanigans on 'Milk and Honey'.

Soft Cell
Non Stop Erotic Cabaret

The first album by Soft Cell, released in 1981 to much attention.

Pascal Pinon
Sundur

Pascal Pinon’s third album is a truly serene and reflective one. Themed around the two sisters’ first separation from each other, whilst Jófríður went on tour with her other band, Samaris, Ásthildur stayed in Amsterdam to study. Written whilst apart and during brief encounters in Iceland and the Netherlands and then recorded in two days after 1 and a half years, the evocative and heart-wrenching nature of the situation is woven into this record.

Daniel Woolhouse
What’s That Sound

Daniel Woolhouse not under his Deptford Goth moniker is a different affair entirely. Less of the woozy downtempo melancholia, more life loving and richly organic indie pop songs.

High Sunn
Hopeless Romantic

High Sunn has racked up thirty releases to date, an impressive number even before you become aware that that accounts for just three years, or that Mr High Sunn is currently only seventeen(!!). It sounds absurd, but hey, just listen to Hopeless Romantic and you’ll find it hard to deny that the kid has the indie-pop talent to back it all up. Vinyl EP on PNK SLM.

Nick Hakim
Green Twins

Nick Hakim’s debut album Green Twins, following up on a pair of very well-received EPs, is the result of a stack of musical experience and a battalion of inventive production techniques.

Me and the Bees
Menos Mal

Me and the Bees are a Spanish indie pop band with the enviable power to summon up sheer joyous vibes with every one of its quick little two minute tracks. Menos Mal is happy hedonist summer music, built out of sweet vocal harmonies and cool chords. Ooh it's lovely stuff this is. CD / LP on La Castanya.

Ghost Thoughts
Purple Period

As the solo project of Davina Shell (Thee Ahs), Ghost Thoughts is a unique project with an intriguing approach. For instance, each of the six tracks on this Ghost Thoughts offering features a different female vocalist. Consistently mellow and jangly indie-rock for those lazy Sundays at home.

Mammút
Kinder Versions

If you’re a fan of the Icelandic sound (there definitely is one) Mammút bring it in spades on their new album on Bella Union Kinder Versions. Post rock meets psychedelic, not as far or ethereal as Sigur Ros, but the gentleness is there, topped with the Björk meets Karin Andersson (The Knife/Fever Ray) vocals of Katrína Mogensen.

Serengeti
Dennehy

David Cohn’s bizarre and comedic hip-hop and indie mashup moniker Serengeti’s breakthrough album from 2006, Dennehy is made available on vinyl for the first time, and it includes a bonus track called Amateur Surgeon and four further tracks that made up an unreleased EP called Beautyman. Think somewhere between Beck and Buck 65.

!!! (Chk Chk Chk)
Shake The Shudder

New York’s hardy perennial dance-punkers !!! (pronounced Chk Chk Chk remember) are in their twentieth year now, which gives Shake The Shudder a new angle. On the one hand, this is still joyful party-dance music. On the other, the band are feeling a bit more introspective and mature. But you know what? That just enables a better party. Out on Warp.

Kumisolo & Joe Davolaz
Kabuki Femme Fatale

Kabuki Femme Fatale is the result of a collaboration between synth-pop artiste Kumisolo and Swedish tropical-groove band Joe Davolaz (odd the former name belongs to the solo artist and the latter the band eh?).

Feature
Banishing Ritual

Rad trio music from Liv Willars, Heather Perkins (also of Slowcoaches) and Jen Calleja (also of Sauna Youth).

Various
He's A Liquid

Extremely limited vinyl 12” compilation from Metamatic records. This EP collects various covers of songs from John Foxx’x Metamatic album, all by artists he loved. The tunes on He’s A Liquid are diverse, but they’re all indebted to Foxx’s abrasive and melancholic approach to synth-pop.

Butcher Boy
Bad Things Happen When It’s Quiet

Been awhile since we've heard from Butcher Boy (2011 to be exact) but here they are with three fresh new recordings - a three part story told from different perspectives. The band wrote the pieces whilst making trips to Cape Cod National Seashore and showcase a new ambitious take on their wordy, literate indie-pop.

The Distractions
Kindly Leave The Stage

The Distractions declare an end to their long career (although said career did have a three-decade gap in it) with their third album, Kindly Leave The Stage. By making an active decision, the band get to fully define their exit, with at least half the album’s tracks being actively about departure or endings. Lovely melancholic guitar pop, released by Occultation.

Glass Vaults
The New Happy

Psychedelic indie pop band from New Zealand Glass Vaults return with their sophomore album The New Happy. Following on from Sojourn the album pushes more sunshine pop whilst retaining the psych tonality of their more sun-kissed shoegaze. Up-beat, loving, fun and incredibly positive. That’s good, yes?

Rose McDowall was a member of much-loved indie darlings Strawberry Switchblade, and Cut With A Cake Knife compiles songs that were originally intended for that group's second album. Instead, McDowall recorded them herself over 1988 and 1989. Lovely and bright indie pop from an expert of the form. CD or swirly vinyl on Night School.

First Light

Former Bullies
Stranger

Stalwarts of Manchester’s DIY scene for years now, Former Bullies make charming lo-fi pop that recalls the best that that city has offered up over the years. Plenty of Velvet Underground in there too, particularly on lead single ‘Stranger’. Now on their fourth album, the band have honed their craft to such a point that the record feels light and buoyant while still showcasing some fine songwriting chops.
