Saint Etienne
Foxbase Alpha

Perfect synthesis of bric-a-brac pop and post-rave beat-making, featuring era touchstone ‘Only Love Can Break Your Heart’, a sublime take on the Neil Young track. Heavenly celebrated the 25th anniversary of Saint Etienne’s 1991 classic ‘Foxbase Alpha’ with an extensive set of reissues. Three versions are available for purchase; a double CD (with 14 extra tracks and a 28-page booklet), a standard LP version, and a triple LP box set (featuring a bonus one-sided 7”, a 32-page booklet, and assorted inserts).

Courteeners
Mapping The Rendezvous

The Courteeners are one of those bands while not famous nationally, have gathered an enormous following which allows them to play gigs in front of 30,000 people. Their previous album 'Concrete Love' did very well for them and there's no reason why the perky well crafted indie rock of this, their fifth album won't follow suit.

Motorama
Dialogues

Motorama create melancholic pop from their home studio in the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don. Dialogues is their fourth LP and has infectious melodies layered with pulsating synths and slouching vocals. There’s something naiive and fun about these homemade tracks, but they are ultimately very well crafted pop tunes.

Microdisney
The Clock Comes Down The Stairs

The Clock Comes Down the Stairs was the second album by Cork based 80s pop gurus Microdisney and begins the move from the masterful indie pop they purveyed on Everything is Fantastic to the more sophisticated Steely Dan/Prefab Sprout soft pop they would work with on later albums. Like their other work it combines sweet melodies with dark lyrics from wonder-voiced frontman Cathal Coughlan.

The Clang Group
Practice

Hey who says that old guys can't still rock? Clive Langer was famed for being in much enjoyed '70s group Deaf School as well as being Madness and Morrissey producer but woke up aged 60 and decided to form a band. The excellent art rock they produce could easily come from musicians half their age and so it's somewhat of a shock when the video reveals them to looking something like They Might Be Giants backing band on the 'They'll Need a Crane' vid.

Ultimate Painting
Dusk

Ultimate Painting are a laid back duo of Jack Cooper and James Hoare who sound like if they have a plan it is to make a distinctly English version of the kind of fresh as a breeze guitar tunes the Velvet Underground blueprinted on their third album. Indeed this is the third record from our heroic duo and once again it has been recorded onto tape in one of their flats.  Expect alluringly lush guitar pop and stellar songwriting chops.

The Prophet Hens
The Wonderful Shapes Of Back Door Keys

The Prophet Hens previous release 'Popular People do Popular People' has to be one of the most thrilling Antipodean releases of recent years perfectly updating that Chills sound with a heap of sparkling tunes. We are very excited then to hear this magnificently titled follow up which promises a marriage of C86 jangle, early REM mystery pop and of course whatever it is that has been passed down from their Flying Nun forefathers.

The Moles
Flashbacks and Dream Sequences : The Story of The Moles

Formed by singer/songwriter Richard Davies in Sydney, Australia at the end of the 1980s, The Moles released two EPs and one full-length album before relocating to New York to release two singles. The band then moved to London and broke up despite favourable reviews from the British music press. The band reformed and released one album, Instinct. Davies went on to form the duo Cardinal with Eric Matthews. Flashbacks and Dream Sequences: The Story of The Moles is available on CD. The 2 CD set contains everything the band released: Two albums, Untune The Sky and Instinct and all the EPs and singles.
  • Vinyl Triple LP (FIRELP241)

Gruff Rhys
Set Fire To The Stars

Good isn't he? This soundtrack to a film about Dylan Thomas's first week in the USA has a warm hopeful feel with the Super Furry Animals lad effortlessly blending cocktail jazz, Americana and Atomic Age bop using vintage instruments and live takes. Recorded at the same time but in very different circumstances to his last LP 'American Interior', this sounds like it will be an essential addition to his back catalogue.

Ian Sweet
Shapeshifter

Ian Sweet (which is a band by the way, not an individual man) release their full-length debut in the form of Shapeshifter. Brooklyn-based Jilian Medford drives the group with her self-inquisitive lyrics and unusual singing style, with the rest of the Sweet outfit weaving strange instrumental structures around her. Curious stuff! Out on Hardly Art.

Alien Ensemble
Alien Ensemble 2

Micha Archer of The Notwist (along with drummer Andreas Harberl) set up Alien Ensemble to explore instrumental arrangement, to take it down a gear, and strip things back. Their second album is further stripped back with it sounding like a backing band to jazz pieces without the soloing madman upfront. Sometimes krauty sometimes lounge-appropriate, but really quite serene.

Blue House
Suppose

Suppose is the debut album from London outfit Blue House, who play DIY guitar pop with wistful lyrics about relationships and loss over plenty of indie guitar jangle. They sound pretty fully formed given that it’s only been a year since the band was formed. Suppose is released in a limited edition of 500 LPs via the Whipped Cream label.

Moby & The Void Pacific Choir
The Systems Are Failing

Well, Moby’s back, and he’s pissed. His new incarnation with The Void Pacific Choir removes the pianos and string sections, and the down beat pleasantness. It seems angry, almost Gary Numan inspired electro punk. Huge pounding kick drums, overdriven beds of synths and near shouted, and preaching vocals. Moby’s taking a stand against the tide of forever young pop it seems.

Xeno & Oaklander
Topiary

Fifth album of analogue-synthesised electro-pop songcraft from this Brooklyn duo. Xeno & Oaklander’s songs are stately and aloof in that classic distant-stare synth-pop way: this could easily be a lost find from a central European country in the late 80’s, though it was recorded in the Tom Tom Club(!)’s studio in the States. Sleeve artwork by the band’s own Liz Wendelbo. On Ghostly International.

Two Door Cinema Club
Gameshow

Indie rock cannon fodder Two Door Cinema Club still exist, why not, and their new record Gameshow will appease fans of their clean, pop-oriented songwriting while introducing little ripples in the sound that characterised predecessor Beacon. Remixes and stuff if you go deluxe, otherwise just carry on down with that Reading/Leeds-ready alt rock sound.

The Yearning
Evening Souvenirs

Prepare yourself to be whisked away by a wall of complete charm. 70s Burt Bacharach instrumentation and sorrowful glitz. Joe Moore’s compositions and productions take you back in time, through soft focus, and Maddie Dobie’s heartbreaking vocals underpin the nature of the tracks being filled with incredible sadness whilst being wistful almost playful.

How To Dress Well
Care

How to Dress Well's Tom Krell has done a good job of lurching from murky chillwave wannabe to clean and sophisticated boyband wannabe in the space of just three albums. This latest album has been mixed by Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, fun.) and has the download chart-ready hi-end production values in tact behind Tom's excellently smooth vocals. Hard to fathom that this is on the same label that recently gave us Richard Dawson.

Flock of Dimes
If You See Me, Say Yes

We've already had A Flock Of Seagulls, now we have Flock of Dimes which is the very slick pop project of Wye Oake member Jenn Wasner. Wasner sings sweetly over a guitar pop/electronica hybrid with the occasional clever production to keep things interesting. Certainly aiming high, this has been mixed by 'super' producer John Congleton.

Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam
I Had A Dream That You Were Mine

This titanic super-duo of indie pop feelings-havers contains one Walkmen frontman and one Vampire Weekend songwriter -- Hamilton Leithauser is the former and Rostam Batmanglij the latter. With Leithhauser's band dissolving as Batmanglij quit his, the duo got together to write songs in grandiose baroque stylings, much in the mould of Leithauser's recent solo material. I Had a Dream That You Were Mine is a serene collection of newly-styled old fashioned, with "A 1000 Times", its lead single, a pulpy love song romp.

Trentemoller
Fixion

The Danish king of erotic minimal techno is back with a sweet 2xLP. If you're anything like me, you've followed Trentemøller ever since you watched space-dog Laika take off for space in the videoclip for Moan. Now with Fixion, it’s time to get yourself another fix from one of Scandinavia's finest.

Justice
Woman

The French lords of electro-house circa 2007-9 are back after quite some years away. Woman has the classic feel of Justice’s much-loved earlier material, but they haven’t ignored what music has been getting up to in the intervening years. For one thing, there are a lot more vocals on Woman. CD and double LP editions, with an etching on the vinyl D side.

Merchandise
A Corpse Wired For Sound

Noise pop pals Merchandise come back around for 'A Corpse Wired For Sound', ditching the cleaner, more accessible rocking rawk music of their last record for their more disguised and discarded sound. Expect enduring songs buried under a lot of rubble and a gentle nod towards hardcore.

Warpaint
Heads Up

Warpaint decide to direct their audience literally by naming the first single from their new record "New Song". Cool: the band's slow, brooding rock ascent may or may not continue on their follow-up to 2014's self-titled effort (plus Lindberg's solo LP), but the opening single has a glitching electro-pop glare and sparkly sideways riffs. So far, so different.

Nils Bech
Echo

Leftfield pop music, that moves away from the city and into the wilderness. Teaming up with young Norwegian producer Drippin’ snaps Nils Bech into an upfront force. When he is known for his ethereal, rapturous avantgarde pop songs, Echo is not so much a departure from this, but a focus and succinct approach to it. More dramatic and upfront.

Including Jaakko Eino Kalevi, Marc Collin (Nouvelle Vague), London’s Bullion, delicate electro-pop from Frenchman Flavien Berger, Skweee-ers Easy & C.O.U., Nite Jewel and many others.

British pop stalwarts the Pet Shop Boys drop the latest single from their latest album, the sleek Twenty-something. It can’t be denied that Neil and Chris know how to make catchy pop songs, and this will be firmly in your head by the third listen. The main track is backed up by 2 previously unreleased songs, as well as a remix by Los Evo Jedis in a reggaeton style. CD single on x2.

IOKOI
Liquefy

Step in digital post-reality with IOKOI, who makes her debut with this album. Liquefy is electronic pop that slithers around what you expect to hear, deploying beautifully strange textures and production design. The vibe is Holly Herndon-inspired, approaching a state of post-humanity. Out on the -OUS label.

Laura Gibson
Empire Builder

Empire Builder is the result of Laura Gibson’s presumably quite upsetting experience of having her apartment building literally explode shortly after uprooting her life from Portland to New York. Tricky times, but they seem to have led to something beautiful: on this record Laura’s beautifully-melodic chamber pop is on top form. On City Slang.

The Shaggs
Philosophy of The World

Lots of people hate on The Shaggs, but what the hell do people know? This was a band that played rock music without needed to know how to play rock music, fitting together scraps of sounds into a broken approximation of the familiar. Which is to say that The Shaggs are great! Philosophy Of The World is their one and only album, and it’s been reissued by Light In The Attic.

Selector Dub Narcotic
This Party Is Just Getting Started

Calvin Johnson, the man with the lowest voice on the entire planet is back with more party jams courtesy of his slightly reworded Dub Narcotic brand.  This is a collaboration between Johnson and hip hop producer Smoke M2D6 and of course heavily features Johnson's trademark melodica puffing along with the dance pop garage on offer.

Yello
Toy

Yello, the Oh Yeah-producing synth-pop pioneers, are back with a thirteenth album, having been quiet for a whole nine years. Toy is as fun and groovy as the Swiss group’s classic stuff, with darkly deadpan vocals over bouncy synths. Double LP or CD editions on Universal. The cover is yello-wy which must be some sort of coincidence.

Eskimeaux
Year Of The Rabbit (Redux)

Heart-warming, playful and delicate pop songs from Brooklyn based indie pop group. Formed of members from Bellows, Told Slant, and Florist.

Mike Kinsella has done a lot of time in the Chicago indie-etc. scene, in bands like Cap’n’Jazz, American Football and Joan of Arc. But his most personal music is made in his solo project Owen (no I don’t know the significance of the name). Much of the Owen music has been lo-fi and acoustic, but The King Of Whys is a fully-fledged big-production record. Out on Wichita.

Lung Dart
Ebbs

If you've been missing indie pop done by way of a James Blake and London Grammar hybrid -- whispers and high-strung romantics, placed over layers of ethereal gold dust and washy ambience -- then Lung Dart ask a pertinent question: "why don't you stay with me?". Though it mostly began as voice memos on an iPhone, this eighteen minute beginner's guide to the band, known as Ebbs, allows them to shine around gorgeous, ascending synths, a kind of celestial pop music that feels decidedly post-rock in its direction.

Depeche Mode
Some Great Reward

Some Great Reward was originally released in 1984. It was after its release that Depeche Mode started to gain a worldwide audience. The number of fans turning up to their gigs in the States increased noticeably and the album's biggest hit, People Are People was used by German TV as the theme song for their coverage of the Los Angeles Olympics. Some Great Reward is arguably Depeche Mode's best album as words such as "classic" and "timeless" are often used in the same sentence.

NAKED
ZONE

The duo NAKED are new and young and vigorous, with a sound that drowns pop songs in wave upon wave of digital distortion and shreds of unidentified sound.

Neil Hannon has kept himself busy though: His side project The Duckworth Lewis Method released a second album, He’s composed a choral work which was performed at London’s Royal Festival Hall and even written a musical version of Swallows and Amazons. Foreverland thematically covers a lot of ground from historical figures to the French Foreign Legion and is also historically inaccurate, according to Hannon. However, he also says it’s essentially about life and love.

Australia based Jarrad Brown of Eagle & The Worm and Ryan Grieve of Canyons make up Venus II.

Trippy, psychedelic, sweaty and fist pumpingly fun.

Dreamy-warm guitar good times with a darker undercurrent from Japanese Breakfast, the solo activity of Michelle Zauner out of Little Big League.

Make sure you listen to the lyrics. Out on Dead Oceans.

Midnite Spares

Melbourne crate diggers Instant Peterson and Andras Fox compile this cheeky little compilation of the strange and wonderful avantgarde pop underbelly of Australia (and some from further afield) from the 80s and 90s. With Poets of the Machine “playing Arabs in the park” and Mix asking you about your masturbation habits through a near comical disco-synth groove-out, Midnite Spares is definitely a collection of curiosities.

'No Mind No Money' is their new record and it's written in tribute to that post-university time where you're just doing a bunch of stuff and hoping something sticks.

Could you have ever imagined that in 2016 there'd be a new Wedding Present album? They have seemingly been content to rest on their nostalgia laurels over the past few years but they show that there is some fire still there with this 20 track album of linked songs which begins with four instrumentals.  "Some things just don't change" sings David Gedge on 'Bear' and he's still wittering on about break ups and relationships and stuff like that but there's nothing here that suggests that this won't appeal to long term fans.

The Invisible
Life's Dancers (Floating Points Remix)

The Invisible’s lauded ‘Patience’ LP now yields a track with the full Floating Points treatment. Sam Shepherd drops the science (and a cello) to rework ‘Life’s Dancers’ into a fine space-funk epic. Plus he produced a new track on the flip. Busy boy. 180g black 12” vinyl in 3mm spined sleeve, on Ninja Tune.

Tim Burgess & Peter Gordon
Same Language, Different Worlds

Peter Gordon has a long history of working with the likes of Arthur Russell and other remarkable New York types, and Tim Burgess of The Charlatans obviously jumped at the chance to collaborate with him. Their Same Language, Different Worlds is Russell-esque future funk record, with contributions from Nik Void (Factory Floor) and Peter Zummo! On O Genesis.

Sleigh Bells
Jessica Rabbit

Sleigh Bells return with their first album in fully 3 years! Jessica Rabbit is just as it should be, with big fat pop song bangers driven by giant beats and pushed through filters of happy noise.

Klangstof
Close Eyes To Exit

Klangstof, otherwise known as Norwegian chap Koen van de Wardt reaches dizzy heights of comparison, with Thom Yorke and Sigur Ros being thrown out by listeners. Signed to Mind of a Genius, his first album Close Eyes to Exit is lush, filled with a huge variety of influences from hip hop to elaborate Scanavian dreamscape pop. On CD and vinyl.

AlunaGeorge
I Remember

AlunaGeorge - that’s... Aluna Francis and, um, George -- return to follow up their corporeal ‘Body Music’, with I Remember. It promises 12 more tracks of pop at the very edge, with a soulful feel; in the way they do so confidently. Plus, the title track was helmed by Flume. So there’s that. And Popcaan. LP and CD on Island.

Ali Muhareb
Walkin’ / Thunder & Lightning

Hoops
Hoops EP

This glittery indie pop sounds like it was either recorded or played back underwater. I mean that in the nicest possible way. Sunbeams glistening through and lapping against your feet, blurring the edges, it’s dreamy and quite intoxicating. Hoops soothe away the annoyances of the day, why have you put the heating on and opened the window? Just press play, oh, ahhhhh.

Trentemoller
Redefine

The second single to be released for Trentemøller’s upcoming album Fixion, and is one of the four tracks that will feature long-time collaborator Marie Fisker. Trentemøller is a shapeshifter, moving between groovy, verging on cheeky synth dance tracks and leftfield experimentation, so with wanting to be too cheesy.. Expect the unexpected.

Sin Fang
Spaceland

Sin Fang’s Spaceland is glistening R&B electronic pop with a deep yet ultimately joyously freeing rumination that you can imagine working closely with Jónsi and Alex Somers would bring. On one hand heavy bass and hi-hat bangers, the other delicate and vulnerable. Featuring Jónsi, Sóley, Jófríður Ákadóttir and Farao.

Freetown Sound

Freetown Sound is the third album by Blood Orange aka Dev Hynes (Lightspeed Champion, Test Icicles). It follows on from 2011’s Costal Grooves and 2013’s critically acclaimed Cupid Deluxe. Hynes took on the Blood Orange moniker after moving to New York in the mid 2000s.

Depeche Mode
Speak & Spell

Speak and Spell was Depeche Mode's debut album, originally released in 1981. The album is notable for showcasing the talents of Vince Clarke, who was the chief songwriter. Clarke left the band after it was released. Among many of the classics on here Just Can't Get Enough is probably the most well known. Speak and Spell is available on vinyl LP.

The Ocean Party
Restless

Melbourne-based indie-pop six piece The Ocean Party make the kind of fresh indie music you’d expect from an Aussie band. Similar to recent favourites The Goon Sax and The Phoenix Foundation. You will hear cap-dothing to Gayngs and Destroyer through their use of piano and sax. Restless is a diverse collection of songs - probably resulting from each of the six members contributing songs.

Of Montreal
Innocence Reaches

Kaleidoscopic super-band of Montreal have reached their fourteenth album: with that much of an established career, Kevin Barnes is entirely free to lead his merry players down all sorts of fantastic avenues: lots of synth-pop, exploding vocal harmonies, experimental sound collage, dance beats etc. And typically bold lyrics too. Innocence Reaches is a whole lot of album, and a whole lot of fun. CD, double LP or cassette on Polyvinyl.

Junk Son
Beginning, Ending, Pretending

Junk Son are a Goldsmiths band, though with the pleasing twist that some members of the group studied popular music while others trained in contemporary composition. That uncommon pairing is responsible for the more unusual edges that really make the music stick. Debut album Beginning, Ending, Pretending is released by 37 Adventures.

Arc Iris
Moon Saloon

Follow-up to 2014's eponymous debut, 'Moon Salon' is a heavier and less whimsical offering from Rhode Island-based Arc Iris. The band have built up a worldwide following, not least due to their elaborate live performances and stage shows. Singer Jocie Adams wrote all the songs in a log cabin with no electricity or running water, trivia fans. LP on Bella Union.

Body of Light
Let Me Go

The Arizonan brothers who make up Body of Light are having a great time here emulating their (presumed) childhood heroes: Let Me Go is a full-blown synth-pop album of grand proportions, with bold drums and darkwave-influenced vocals. They’ve done such a great job that you might assume this was a 1980’s reissue. Vinyl release on DAIS.

Hannah Peel
Awake But Always Dreaming

Concept album from Irish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Hannah Peel, exploring the descent into dementia. Beginning with the hope and exuberance of childhood, and charting love and life before a shift of pace represents the confusion and fuzziness of late-life dementia. Bright and joyful, yet at times dark and percussive. This is Peel's second solo album. Available now on vinyl or CD.

Martin Rev
Stigmata

Suicide synth-hero Martin Rev treated the world to this solo album back in 2009. And you might be surprised by how it sounds: none of that Suicide pummel here. Instead, Stigmata is a set of seemingly religiously-inspired pieces for synthetic orchestra: the sound of some strange future space-church perhaps? This curious work is reissued on Blast First Petite.

Jamie T
Trick

Popular rap rock dude Jamie T is back after a gap of two years with more massive ear worms that you'll know even if you claim otherwise. Lead single 'Tinfoil Boy' is both emo-tinged and moshpit friendly which bodes well for an album of expansive /punk/reggae/rap/pop that is sure to be one of the years bigger releases. He's one of the ok ones this lad.

Slow Club
One Day All Of This Won't Matter Any More

Slow Club doesn’t exactly take it easy. Only a year after I Swam Out to Greet You, the duo, consisting of multi-instrumentalists Charles Watson and Rebecca Taylor, is back. Working with American southern-folk producer Mathew E. White, the duo were able to reinvent their catchy slow pop style. Even if nothing really matters, One Day All Of This Won’t Matter Anymore totally does matter.

Local Natives
Sunlit Youth

Third one from the very much still existing Local Natives, whose winking take on baroque pop charms those who love their lushness perfectly imperfect. Over their first two records this group proved themselves very Fleet Foxes and sorta of Montreal, but Sunlit Youth promises a change in direction and a newfangled energy.

J Churcher
Borderland State

J Churcher's debut album hearkens back to the 90s psychedelia of Slowdive and Mazzy Star. Haunting, reverb-drenched vocals sit atop hazy soundscapes and fuzzy guitars, all of it rooted in Churcher's formidable songwriting and compositional flare. With elements of chamber-pop, dream-pop, shoegaze and indie-folk, Borderland State offers much to be explored. Available on Vinyl LP on the 37 Adventures label.

How To Let Things Go

JOOVE broadcast from Tel Aviv, where Aviad Zinemnas and Yuval Shenhar construct their own personal take on electro-pop songwriting. How To Let Things Go’s 5 tracks have some deep echo, some dramatically wearied vocals, and snatches of folk musics alongside the keyboards and electronics. 12” release on the InchPerSecond label.

Dodgy
What Are We Fighting For

Here come Dodgy in 2016 with a brand new album featuring the original 'classic' line up. The press notes suggest they've been listening to such Norman-friendly bands such as Atlas Sound, White Fence and Can and the band certainly seem to feel that this is their best work. So really who are we to argue?

The Hairs
While I Hated Life, Barbarian

Hair eh? What would we do without it. The Hairs are a freak-pop collective showing influences ranging from comic books to K Records to houseplants to Flying Nun to anxiety to prison stays. Sounds very promising indeed and the sort of crazy unique thing you may have read about in Bananafish circa '92.

From Sweden with love, Stockholm band The Legends deliver an album of characteristically smooth songs about love and life.

The Monochrome Set
Cosmonaut

Trace back from The Last Shadow Puppets, Franz Ferdinand et al any you’ll find The Monochrome Set. They originally formed in 1978, as part of the first wave of post-punk, and give most contemporaries a run for their money. Grand and smokey dive bar music, that would fit soundtracking a coming of age indie flick.

The Wave Pictures
A Season In Hull

On A Season in Hull, the fourteenth studio album from English rockers The Wave Pictures, the group return to their lo-fi roots. Recorded live with a single microphone, this vinyl LP on Wymeswold Records relies on impeccable songwriting and charming grooves. The immediacy of the recording reminds us just how sharp and witty these guys have always been. Lovely stuff.

Kishi Bashi
Sonderlust

Sonderlust may sound merry and shimmery, but it is a record produced from the depths of a challenging personal struggle: Kishi Bashi’s marriage was on the brink of collapse. The heavy situation inspired a heartfelt record of beautiful electronic / orchestral pop music, with Bashi’s soul bared over shuffling rhythms and booming choruses. Sonderlust is released by Joyful Noise.

MADEIRA
Bad Humors

Kim Pflaum’s latest incarnation MADEIRA is as sweet and soft as the cake that shares it’s name, though I think that’s as far as the comparison can (and should) go. Lovingly warm synth-pop songs. Lights up, end of night, one last track songs that could soundtrack a group of friends in a taxi home. So, maybe more like the cake than I thought.

Rory Wynne
Why Don't You

Stockport songsmith Rory Wynne will be far too young to remember the recipe swapping television treat from the 1980's but here he's turned off the tv and gone out to do something more interesting instead. He's made two bursts of noisy home made pop that seem to reference the Arctic Monkeys and Jake Bugg but adds some much needed distortion and bite.

Boys forever is the alias of Glaswegian all-rounder Patrick Doyle. Doyle wrote, sung and played every instrument on this vitriolic pop debut. Recorded in LA, whilst maintaining the misery of the grey London winter in which it was written, 'Boys Forever' is pop music with an evil twist. Available to pre-order on vinyl or cd.

2 Bears
The Night Is Young

Happy men The Two Bears release their second album of upbeat dancefloor fun. Its light, fluffy and frothy dancefloor stuff for having a dance to after work. The press release rightly suggests that it's like a taster menu; bits of hard house, soft reggae, punchy ragga, tear-jerkers, funk, soul and everything in between. I'm not happy enough to enjoy this kind of music but its harmless fun isn't it?
