L.A. Takedown
II

Aaron M. Olson leads his seven piece band L.A. Takedown into the creation of some really intricate music on their second album II. These compositions are busy but tightly controlled, with melodic lines and groovy-rhythms twisting around each other to form precise and proggy pieces. Released by Ribbon Music.

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
Cut With The Cake Knife

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.

Fader
First Light

Fader is a new band made up of two well versed electro synth stalwarts Neil Arthur (Blancmange/Near Future) and Ben Edwards (Benge/John Foxx And The Maths). Their debut album First Light brings a refined 80s sound which has the cold atmospherics of Joy Division and a theatrical yet stern vocal performance.

Bleached
Can You Deal?

Bleached are a band built around a pair of sisters based in the teeming metropolis of Los Angeles. Their music is brimming over with femme energy, mixing the sweet melodies of classic pop with a tough rock bite. Can You Deal? is a bold set of four new tracks, released on 12” white vinyl by the Dead Oceans label.

Looper
Offgrid:Offline

Looper was formed by ex-Belle and Sebastian bassist Stuart David with his wife, crafting indie-folk-pop tracks that are filled with a warm and playful nostalgia.

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.

DBFC
Jenks

As the club-ready brainchild of Parisian 'Dombrance' and Mancunion Dave Shaw, DBFC draw influence from a wide plethora of musical tangents - from British shoegaze to underground French club scenes. Jenks is their debut, and one that refuses to place any restrictions on a free reign of creativity.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

David Byrne
Live From Austin, TX

Here's a chance to buy a slice of, renown singer-songwriter, David Byrne's evolution on the live arena. Live From Austin, TX showcases the ex-Talking Heads member's on-stage flair perfectly. The performance, shot in 2001 soon after the release of 'Look Into The Eyeball', is an absolute must see for any fan.

Celebration
Wounded Healer

In what amounts to a dreamy record, drenched in psychedelic surroundings, Wounded Healer is the stunning 2017 release of Maryland-based trio Celebration. In personifying what the group describe as a "contrasting" three recent years, the release tackles an array of emotions - remaining consistent and grounded.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

ShitKid
Fish

Charmingly nonchalent, ShitKid is Gothenburg's Åsa who has made an anti-pop statement with Fish. A post-feminist, post-punk album using plenty of distorted guitar and riding digital rhythms, her album follows in the devastating wake of her grungey debut single, Oh Please Be A Cocky Cool Kid. Television appearances, a second EP and now her debut full-length blast through. On LP and CD.

Novo Amor
Bathing Beach

Wistful, unrestrained and tranquil - Bathing Beach is the brainchild and dreamy universe of Welsh multi-instrumentalist Novo Amor. The release centres around an intense plethora of emotions, whilst consistently retaining an ethereal beauty. Loose yourself on Amor's beach of tranquility.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Mac DeMarco
This Old Dog

Here he comes again, wearer of North America's filthiest dungarees, that gap toothed smile presumably still intact. Last year's 'Another One' had him a little more measured and melancholy and certainly the first two tracks teased from this have a similar hushed vibe but with that twanging jangling guitar and warm mid fi pop sound intact. 

Walls Of Dada
Walls Of Dada

Walls Of Dada are not quite a true absurdist Dada performance act: they are actually more into coldwave synth-pop. One member of Six By Seven and one member of The Dandy Warhols pooled their collections of vintage synths and guitars and made this record old-style: everything put through amps and bounced to four-track machines, with only the most minimal of overdubs. Walls Of Dada is thus a proper vintage coldwave record. Released by Saturday Night Sunday Morning.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Nightlands
I Can Feel The Night Around Me

When he isn’t playing bass in The War On Drugs, Mr Dave Hartley is making his own hazy synth-indie under the name Nightlands. Third album I Can Feel The Night Around Me appears to have an image of a desert at dusk, which represents the record’s sound fairly neatly. This is lovely melancholy music you can really sink back into. Out on Western Vinyl.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Arda & The Stolen Moon
Minutes Into Years

Arda G, the central figure of Arda & The Stolen Moon, is an Armenian-Cypriot singer-songwriter from the indie-folk school whose material cuts right to the heart of her life and loves. Her vocals are earnest and the band’s performance dramatic when necessary, so their Minutes Into Years album can be pretty effective and affecting when it all clicks together. LP / CD release on Jazmin Road.

Cate Le Bon
Crab Day

Cate Le Bon’s fourth album Crab Day is a record of the Pacific Ocean, near which it was conceived of and recorded. The atmosphere clearly had an impact, as Cate and her band all sound loose and chilled, as though the sea air and the sand in their feet has let them forget all else but the songs they are playing. Released by Turnstile.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

ULTRAS
ULTRAS

ULTRAS is not an album of field recordings of football gangs (although that would be good), but it does carry a certain violence to it. ULTRAS is Gav Prentice (he of Over The Wall fame) plus a number of Scottish producers, making up a racket of distorted guitar-driven pseudo-hip-hop with a distinctive Scots touch. Potent LP released by Instinctive Racoon and Hello Thor Records.

Hoops
Routines

If you can't get enough of that nostalgic and plaintive jangle pop sound as purveyed by the likes of Real Estate, Horsebeach and Wild Nothing then Hoops could be the band for you. After their excellent and swoonsome self titled 12" last year 'Routines' promises an album of perky pop and sweet treats for fans of the Smiths and Sarah Records.  
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

M.O.O.N.
Clinically Blasé

Whilst its tasty selection of rhythms and groove's are firmly rooted in a retro glut of dancefloor-ready genre's, M.O.O.N's blend amounts to a much more forward thinking method. On this occasion, Clinically Blase is a 10-track slice of synth-heavy and jazz-chord-fuelled expedition.

Mew
Visuals

Twenty years into a career as topsy turvy as their music Danish prog-poppers Mew unleash their seventh album hot on the heels of 2015's '+ -'. 'Visuals' suggests a band keen on writing in a spontaneous manner using all the bleakness they encountered in 2016 to add a darkness to their '80s influenced progressive music.

The Raveonettes
2016 Atomized

The Raveonettes set themselves that good old task in 2016: release a single every month for the whole year. Now they usefully round them all up for those who were slow off the mark last year: 2016 Atomized shows the results of this explorative process, which vary in style and sound. CD and LP editions available from The Raveonettes’ own label imprint.

Little Cub
Still Life

After a couple of extended singles in 2016 through Closing Time and Domino London’s Little Cub are exploding onto Domino with their debut full length. An adept mix of indie pop and electronica production Still Life features tracks that range from solid indie shuffle grooves to Caribou esque house. Indies only limited version comes with 7 remixes by members of the band.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Babe
Kiss & Tell

Described as ‘Glasgow’s premier secret party band’, Babe have released a new record after a two year absence entitled Kiss & Tell. It’s not very common that a relatively indie band can combine dance and disco music with indie pop and it turn out okay but Babe blend their sound to also include dream pop and house and techno for a true eclectic combination. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Breakbot
2good4me / My Toy Remixes

After releasing their album Still Waters earlier in 2016 Breakbot have gathered a some of their producer friends to have a few cracks at their leading singles 2good4me and My Toy. Featuring remixes from Fatima Yamaha, Canblaster (Club Cheval), Riton, and Borussia. Sun and fun filled pop-come-house tracks aplenty.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Sleep Party People
Lingering

Sleep Party People started out as the solo home recording project of Brian Batz, and although he’s picked up some bandmate assistants for touring, he still writes, performs and produces everything you hear on Lingering. Quite the feat when you hear how fully-formed these bright-eyed epic-pop miniatures are. Lingering is released by Joyful Noise.

Guerilla Toss
GT Ultra

Guerilla Toss set a psychedelic tone immediately and very clearly with the artwork for GT Ultra, by housing the album in a sleeve of vintage acid blotter designs. Heavy. The music is pretty lysergic too, cramming in slightly too many elements into the busy, energetic mix of their songs, in a pleasingly wild way. Get heady with GT Ultra, released by DFA.

Batsch
Batch

The danceable sweetness of Batch is both teeth rotting and euphoric enough to spark a generous sugar rush. This Coventry quartet have produced a nippy nine-tracker destined to propel their unique brand of sarcastic pop further up the ladder of the murky indie underground - certainly if Billie Jean-esque lead single 'Awkward Patch' is anything to go by.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Hazel English
Just Give In / Never Going Home

Hazel English was originally from Australia but more recently has been sunbaked in California where she has concocted this heady brew of blurry jangle pop. Amid the jangling guitars and sweet melodies, her voice soars which has led to comparisons to DIIV and to her touring with hat wielding reformed shoegazers Ride. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Chad Valley
Equatorial Ultravox Addendum

Chad Valley prepares dance floor friendly electronica with keening vocals and punch the air synth motifs and here we get a vinyl re-issue of his earlier EP now with two tracks added and a remix which appeared on the zombie flick 'Warm Bodies'.  His live set is described as 'the best in the business' by the confident press release and he has supported Erasure and Foals to help back up this claim. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

POLIÇA
Lipstick Stains / Still Counts

An extremely limited record store day release from Minneapolis’ Poliça. Double single on white 7” features two brand new collaborative tracks.

  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Real High

CD and LP from Gloriette.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Nick Hakim
Where Will We Go Pt. I & II

Mixing his competence on piano with a variety of musical disciplines that make him sound slick, professional and tremendously emotional -- like James Blake in another, slightly different life -- Nick Hakim presents his new record, 'Where Will We Go Pt 1 & 2'. The instrumental flourishes are largely the work of Hakim himself, who creates wide empty spaces through a plethora of different arrangements.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Helado Negro
Private Energy (Expanded)

In receiving its first vinyl pressing, an Expanded version of Private Energy has come some way since its original release on small cassette. Whilst everything about the electronic landscape has evolved and developed, this revitalised brainchild of Helado Negro still has a firmly lodged place on the horizon.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Ásgeir
Afterglow

Asgeir is a member of The Lovely Lion and a native of Iceland, sometimes singing in the language.

Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble
Find Me Finding You

New sounds from a new outfit of Laetitia Sadier, the queen of Stereolab. This debut album of the Source Ensemble features some familiar collaborators, as well as guest spots from the likes of Rob Mazurek and Alexis Taylor. The smoothly groovy flavour of all Sadier’s work is still gorgeously present here on Find Me Finding You. Released by Drag City.

Heather Trost
Agistri

Heather Trost, who, as one half of A Hawk And A Hacksaw, has hefty credentials from playing with Neutral Milk Hotel, Thor Harris, Beirut and more. Her solo work is now flourishing, with Agistri arriving on the back of a 7” and a cassette. The album is centred around the Greek island it is named for, and it's an infectious suite of stylistically-varied pop music. CD / LP on LM Dupli-Cation.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Isla Del Rojo
Isla Del Rojo

Guitarist and composer Ulrik Ording and drummer Daniel Ögren step away from their Mainekk project and after having both worked with Anna Von Hausswolf journey somewhere much lighter with Isla Del Rojo. Focusing heavily on folk music and all that entails, and blending South American styles with a Swedish pop uplift. Limited LP on Tona Serand.

Deadboy
Earth Body

Jessica Says
Do With Me What U Will

  • Genre(s):

Sylvan Esso
What Now

Electro-pop duo Sylvan Esso made up of Amelia Meath and Nicholas Sanborn (Made Of Oak) move to Loma Vista for their sophomore album What Now. Meath’s vocals range from CocoRosie fragility to a pop choir version of Zola Jesus, whilst the music follows a modernised 80s synth tract fans of College  might enjoy.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Feist
Pleasure

Leslie Feist comfortably forms part of the burgeoning spearhead of Canadian talent taking over the world. Nearly six years since her last release, Feist returns with an expansive and immersive full-length - crammed with organic production, sweet hooks and a cheeky Jarvis Cocker cameo. This is a creative feast.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

White Violet
Ages

White Violet’s process for this record involved a year-long process of writing pairs of songs, each pair consciously developing on the themes of the previous. The resulting album Ages ended up being about time and ageing and adulthood, with songs that manage these themes intimately and maturely. Released on vinyl by Normaltown Records.

Los Angeles Police Department
Los Angeles Police Department

Since being a member of LA indie rock band Warm Weather, Ryan Pollie has gone it alone as the not google friendly Los Angeles Police Department, and has been signed to Anti-/Epitaph. A wondrous twist on indie pop, there’s elements of lo-fi, Bowie, Feist, acoustic guitars with synth, and scandinavian pop. Great, weird, and fun.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

The Chills
Silver Bullets

Silver Bullets is The Chills first new record since Sunburnt in 1996. Their distinctive, complicated and smart guitar pop mixes lyrics of desolation with memorable, bright melodies. The Chills, along with bands such as The Clean and The Verlaines were part of The Dunedin Sound - a style of indie-pop from New Zealand with a jangly guitar sound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Morrissey
Vauxhall And I (20th Anniversary Definitive Master)

When Steven Patrick’s fourth album was released in 1994, it felt like his most well-rounded and mature work. The intervening years haven’t called for any revision of that assessment. While it might have less bite than the Mick Ronson-produced Your Arsenal, the sound is warm and epic. Guitarists Boz Boorer and Alain Whyte work as solid and inventive co-writers to the master of his domain, who at this point is still expressing relatable emotions amid the bitterness. The album spawned three superior singles, The More You Ignore Me the Closer I Get, Hold On to Your Friends and Now My Heart is Full. If this isn’t one of your top three non-comp solo Moz albums, you thought List of the Lost was a cracking read. On CD with a bonus live disc, or heavyweight vinyl.

The Lemon Twigs
Do Hollywood

Setting the bar at terrifying new levels for annoying-ness, LA rich kid duo the Lemon Twigs manage to invoke '70s Paul McCartney to such a face slapping degree that the album should come with a bonus aloft thumb. They also recall preposterous '90s power pop revivalists Jellyfish in their love of dressing up like extras from Blackadder while worshipping at the leg of Emitt Rhodes.

Grimes
Art Angels

Grimes is back, not that’s she’s been away really, but she certainly split some opinions when she released Go in 2014. With Art Angels she has turned away from the populist pop-trap fad and delivered 14 tracks of addictive leftfield pop. Featuring even more instrumentation played by herself as well as collaborations with Janelle Monáe and Aristophanes.

Future Islands
Singles

Not a Greatest Hits type collection but the first album Future Islands recorded for 4AD. After years as a much loved underground cult band, Future Islands truly crossed over not just with their more streamlined synth pop sound but with the comical antics of singer Sam Herring on their breakout performance on the Late Show with David Letterman. Expect '80s-obsessed smooth synth juxtaposed with eccentric soul-influenced barking and David Brent-like dance moves.

EL VY
Return To The Moon

Menomena and the National are clearly good friends: earlier this year Pfarmers formed from members of each, and now another band has come to us with the former's Brent Knopf and the latter's Matt Berninger. I guess you could call it an indie rock supergroup, though as EL VY ("hell pie", we're told as way of pronunciation), the typical modesty of Berninger should temper that; it'll take the surreal, humorist songwriting of Knopf to lift them both up.
  • Label(s):
  • 4AD

Daughter
Not To Disappear

Second album from Daughter, the slightly-ethereal, thoroughly-melancholic indie trio. They’ve been away for 3 years, and the time has allowed them to hone their frosted sound to a fine, sharp point: Not To Disappear is sincerely sad in sound and in words, but manages to avoid becoming maudlin. Out on 4AD.

Camera Obscura
Desire Lines

'Desire Lines' was the fifth album by Scottish indie starlets Camera Obscura and was the last to be recorded before the tragic passing of keyboard player Carey Lander. Produced by ace producer Tucker Martine (R.E.M., Spoon, My Morning Jacket etc.) it's their most immaculate sounding record with high end indie-pop tunes with a level of sophistication that doesn't tarnish their DIY roots. For the uninitiated: if you like Belle and Sebastian, this band are for you.

Rat Columns
Candle Power

David West continues work on his baby, the ever versatile Rat Columns, through a series of punk rock and pop plot twists that don't quite hook up but never really intend to. His EP for Blackest Ever Black under this moniker was tinged with a light psychedelia and had an earnestly classic feel to it, though that makes no guarantees on this record's sound. 

Julia Holter
In The Same Room

Julia Holter fans rejoice: here we have a set of live-in-the-studio performances of Holter material from each of her four albums. In The Same Room is the first in Domino’s new ‘Documents’ series, in which artists perform live in a studio, and it is a great beginning: Holter’s music sounds as crystal clear as ever on these recordings. CD and double LP editions available.

Pawws
Sugar

Sugar, her debut EP, is coloured by a subtlety of emotion and lingering nostalgia that encapsulates the maturity of her sound, all the while exploring the tempestuousness of relationships. “I guess the main theme of this EP is the what happens when you continue loving someone, even when you know it is bad for you,” she explains. “Although the EP is generally about the pitfalls of love I still think it has an element of hope to it, because you only take risks and end up in those situations when you’re open with your heart.”

The Arms Of Someone New
Susan Sleepwalking

The Arms Of Someone New were an Illinois band who comfortably combined all their favourite genres into one sound: synth-pop, folk, industrial, ambient… Susan Sleepwalking, the duo’s first full-length album, was originally self-released in 1985, and has now been properly remastered and re-pressed to vinyl by Dark Entries, complete with a replica jacket and an insert of lyrics and press clippings.

David Bowie reissue time! Heathen was his 2002 release and his 22nd album. He throws in a couple of covers to this one, including a nice version of Pixies ‘Cactus’.

Élan Vital
Shadow Self

Elan Vital operate out of Dunedin, New Zealand, that hotbed of exciting creativity. The trio pull off a fine thing in taking the rich organ sounds of vintage days and applying their textures to the structures of synth-pop. Yum yum! Shadow Self is moody and danceable dream-pop to lose your head in, and it is released by Fishrider Records and Occultation Recordings.

Future Islands
The Far Field

Remember that funny dancing man off the telly? Well he's back with with 1980s era backing band for another album of emotional synth pop. 'The Far Field' was recorded at the legendary Sunset Studios with John Congleton yet still manages to sound like it was recorded on a state of the art digi-studio in 1985.

Parades

Leaf celebrates twenty years with a handful of reissues, Efterklang’s Parades among them. Branching out from the wiry electronics of debut Tripper, Parades makes heavy use of orchestral instruments to create a cheery mix between the vaulting tweeness of Danish indie and the pomposity of post-rock.

Awake and Pretty Much Sober

The first full-blown and full-length collaborative release of Violents and Monica Martin. Awake And Pretty Much Sober (a high bar to set eh?) is a pop album made by two electronic natives, sifting samples, instruments, vocal harmonies and much else into a set of bright and compelling songs. Awake And Pretty Much Sober is released by Partisan Records.

College
Shanghai

As a squelching pool of nostalgic synthwork, College's third full-length album - Shanghai - is an enriching building block on top of an already sprawling collection. Inspired by the city itself, this gold-pressed LP is an offering absorbed in mystery and a perfect homage to one of the world's most intriguing cities.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

The Legends
Nightshift

For anyone in love with the niche world of retro-furturist synthesizers - look no further. This gorgeous 16-track slab, coined Nightshift, embraces a deluge of vocoders and a shed load of analogue sounds in what makes up a Scandanavian electro expedition. This is The Legends; this is space-pop in its most galactic fashion.
  • Genre(s):

TOPS
Sugar At The Gate

'Third time lucky' is curiously a commonplace notion, but Montreal-born TOPS' third album addition is no fluke. The ten-track sarcasm-infused release is drowned with ambition. "Living in LA was living out a teenage fantasy" - it's this liberation that's led to such a fresh and forward thinking slab of music named Sugar At The Gate.

Alice Jemima
Alice Jemima

Warm and sparse leftfield electronic pop from Alice Jemima, who shot into view with her stripped down/bare groove cover of Blackstreet’s No Diggity. And after garnering a lot of support from Radio 1 and Amazing radio, she is now set to release her debut full length on Sunday Best. Includes her leading singles Dodged A Bullet and Liquorice.

Paco Sala
The Silent Season

Full-length album number five from Paco Sala. The Silent Season was born out of improvised sessions with synthesisers, vocals, samples etc. Hazy pop is still the name of the game, but Paco Sala have deliberately allowed whatever ‘errors’ came through in their playing and production to stand, making this a true portrait of a time and a state. Out on Denovali.

The Perfect Kiss
Disconnect

The Perfect Kiss is Joe Moore (also of The Yearning and Lia Pamina), operating in electro-pop mode. In fact, apart from the excellent vocals of Holly Vanags, a particular Yamaha keyboard from 1985 is the only sound-source on Disconnect, with Joe fully engaging his talents to make magic out of such a minimal pallet. 10” mini-LP on Elefant, limited to 500.

R. Stevie Moore and Jason Falkner
Make It Be

DIY outsider legend R. Stevie Moore got together with Jason Falkner, veteran of stacks of bands and projects (including The Three O Clock and The Grays) to produce Make It Be. Stevie’s music is famously lo-fi, but this record applies Falkner’s production talents to Stevie’s songs, bringing them into full focus. Good-times alternative weird-rock to enjoy! Out on Bar-None.

White Kite
Swans

Straight from a bedroom in London bursts a fresh talent in the form of four piece White Kite. Quite rightly compared to Grizzly Bear or Cloud Boat with an added slice of cold electronica and 80s songwriting their debut Swans is a heady mix of finger clicks 808 basslines, glistening synths and catchy vocals. Pretty cool stuff.

Jenny Hval
Viscera

Jenny Hval's debut record under her own name (after a run of releases as the confrontational and action-packed rockettothesky) investigates the nuances of gender and sexuality through a mystical kind of folklore. Her unique, far-reaching voice combines with spectral guitar picking for a record like none other in her career -- those who are coming to this from Innocence Is Kinky will be taken aback.

Barry Adamson
Love Sick Dick

Barry Adamson, a man with experience in Magazine and Nick Caves’s Bad Seeds, has a new solo EP of ‘unrequited love and lust’ music.

The Dove & The Wolf
Don’t Know What To Feel

Made up of Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat-Camard, The Dove and The Wolf have only had an EP and a single release to their name before Fat Possum caught onto their warm and heart-filled songwriting. Written in a state of upheaval, waiting for visas and being in Paris at the time of the Bataclan attacks is certainly a driving force on Don’t Know What To Feel. It is tragic, human, and filled with a strong determination to survive.

MMOTHS
Deu

Irish producer MMOTHS is in no hurry with his tracks: the title track on Deu takes its sweet time emerging from ambient haze into a lazy shuffle, backed with vocals so distant and whispy that this could almost be shoegaze. All of this is definitely a good thing of course: we like a producer whose big on atmosphere. 10” vinyl on Because Music.

Mystery Artist
Side By Side

This 7” has been released under a veil of secrecy: the two artists who share the wax are anonymous! Although, having had a listen, they do arguably bear a passing resemblance to, hmmm, the Melvins and, oooh, let’s say MC5… Side By Side is a strictly limited Record Store Day 2016 release, stocks are now extremely limited, so don’t wait around.
