JC Flowers
Driving Excitement and The Pleasure

New on ATP Recordings is the debut full-length of JC Flowers. Driving Excitement and The Pleasure is a collection of super-tuneful indie-pop, dripping with lavish production techniques seemingly cribbed from vintage French rock-chanteuserie. All rounded out with a cover version of the David Bowie and ...view item »


J Churcher
Borderline State

J Churcher has worked on his debut album for the past 2 years, and you can hear the work: these productions are full of floaty organs and big guitars, all coated with a warm curtain of shoegaze-aesthetics. Borderline State, which also features the vocals of Anna B Savage, is a strong suite of classic wi...view item »


10,000 Maniacs
In My Tribe

In My Tribe is an excellent example of early 10,000 Maniacs, being initially released in 1987. The songs are beautiful pieces of folkish alt-pop, although the lyrical themes get pretty heavy if you listen: child abuse, illiteracy, war… A set of politically conscious 80...view item »


Prince and the Revolution
Around The World In A Day

Prince’s post-Purple Rain album found the sex-funk overlord’s run of mastery continuing. He wound back from the commercial hit-making slightly in favour of some wild psychedelia, but 1985’s Around The World In A Day still c...view item »


Archive
The False Foundation

Archive are evidently in it for the long haul: The False Foundation is their tenth album! Ten is also the number of members involved in the group, meaning no shortage of ideas buzzing around in the studio. What has come out is a prog / post rock record of sorts, but with more electronics than guitars. Sniff around the a...view item »

Let's Eat Grandma
I, Gemini

Norwich duo Let’s Eat Grandma have their debut album to show to you. I, Gemini is a release with a love of texture at its heart: a very wide variety of instrumentation (mandolin, synths, harmonica) has been used here to keep these poppy tracks highly interesting. Some new sound seems to be hiding behind every corn...view item »


Soren Juul
This Moment

Danish singer songwriter guy Soren Juul is now recording under his own name after a tumultuous three year period where he was presumably stung by our Brian's 4/10 review of his last album under the Indians moniker. He need not worry. 4AD are still on his side and Brian is long gone so we can instead enjoy the gl...view item »

Speedy Wunderground - Year 2

Speedy Wunderground is a label set up by South London producer Dan Carey. The idea is to produce 7” as quickly as possible. Year 2 is a compilation of the singles released in the label’s sophomore year. Includes now established acts such as Teleman and Kate Tempest...view item »


Björk
Vulnicura Live

Live recording of Icelandic songstress Bjork's grammy nominated album 'Vulnicura', which also saw her win best international female at The Brit Awards. Recorded on her 2015 tour, the album includes all the material from the original album, plus a few chosen from her previous work. Nicely packaged in a wound die-cut sleeve. ...view item »


Prince
Art Official Age

This is Prince's thirty-third record, if you can believe it: it's bound to be good, since thirty-three is eleven times a magic number. Art Official Age is only one of his recent slew of releases but offers up a few pop outbursts that have been excitedly waiting in the wings, including the s...view item »


Stanley Brinks & The Wave Pictures
My Ass

Stanley Brinks (who you might know best as the guy for Herman Dune) has built up a good working rapport with The Wave Pictures, and My Ass finds their collaboration in as fine a condition as ever. Several tracks have the names of cities, and wittily document experiences there. A jaunty ...view item »


Palace
So Long Forever

Really they shouldn't be allowed to be called Palace  - it's too confusing for long term Will Oldham fans. Anyway this is their debut album after a smattering of EPs and they are certainly giving it a nice long run up (just look a that release date). They play atmospheric gently lilting music with strained vocals that ...view item »


Boxed In (featuring Formation)
Running Out

New release on producer Dan Carey (Franz Ferdinand, Django Django)'s new label Speedy Wunderground. Boxed In (otherwise known as Speedy collaborator Oli Bayston) do electro rock indie which is sort of in the Keane vein. This was apparently written and recorded in under three hours, for that 'spontaneous' feel. ...view item »


Oslo House
Plateau / Kamo River

Oslo House is a solo project of Phil Serfarty, previously known for spitting fire as part of Omi Palone before that band crumbled into non-existence. Plateau / Kamo River is a good start as a solo artist, changing tack with something a lot calmer and more overtly melodic. This 7” ...view item »


Globelamp
The Orange Glow

Globelamp is the solo project of Elizabet Le Fey, formerly of Foxygen but now boldly doing her own thing. The Orange Glow is a strong statement, with Le Fey’s songs swaggering and swooning around like the sun-and-angst tinged music of 70’s California: the al...view item »


Anohni
Hopelessness

Anohni of Antony And The Johnsons presents her solo project. Production assistance from big-guns Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never make this a kaleidoscopic electronic experience, her ever-soaring vocals above a busy dance-swirl. Ecstatic and experimen...view item »


Wesley Fuller
Melvista

He’s got the hair, he's got the attitude, he’s got youth on his side and he’s got the tunes! Wesley Fuller is an Australian native, who has surrounded himself with some of Melbourne’s brightest young talent. His new single Melvista is a bubblegum delight! Purple vinyl 12” on 1965 Records....view item »


Samaris
Black Lights

Icelandic trio Samaris overcame great European distance to make their third album Black Lights, with the members split between The Hague, Berlin and assorted other locations. Hasn’t hindered them though: as well as bringing a touch of Berlin techno underpin...view item »


Liberation
Liberation

San Francisco based David West has many faces, from his work as guitarist and vocalist for Rank / Xerox and Rat Columns as well as another electronic project Lace Curtain. Liberation is his latest, somewhat theatrical synth pop, and wouldn’t sound amiss wi...view item »


Weird Dreams
Luxury Alone

Weird Dreams is the solo work of Doran Edwards. This album is particularly solo, as no other hands touched it until after it was mixed. That means we can guarantee that Luxury Alone sounds exactly as it was meant to. The making of th...view item »


Evans The Death
Vanilla

Evans The Death have always been an intense blast of a listen, but their previous albums have tended to be grounded in pop songs. Not so on Vanilla, which is dark, jagged, and more than a little sonically weird. Needless to say, this is a positive development, setting ...view item »


Quasi
Field Studies

Quasi has yet to replicate their incredible live sound on record. Only 'R&B Transmogrification' comes close, although it is far too dry sounding. On this album Sam Coomes, once again, churns out some great melodies and great rhymes. However, much of the kick of the two previous albums are missing--which means that the sounds here are far rem...view item »


Samuel
Luv Cry

Apparently no relation to the Four Tet shuffle-anthem, Samuel’s Luv Cry is a 4 track set of futuristic R&B. Samuel’s vocals are full of feels, and they are suppo...view item »


Quasi
R&B Transmogrification

Very welcome re-press of Quasi’s 1997 debut studio album. Quasi’s approach to indie rock always sounded interesting, with rockin’ tunes jammed out on fuzzy guitars and fuzzy harpsichords and low-key vocals. Only the 2 of them, but they k...view item »


The Associates
Sulk

Sulk was The Associates crowning glory. Originally released in 1982 it mixed David Bowie and Scott Walker influences with the New Romantic pop of the day. It was widely critically acclaimed and was named Melody Maker’s album of the year for 1982. It was the last album to include t...view item »


Alex Cameron

The Brilliant Corners
Heart On Your Sleeve - A Decade In Pop: 1983-1993

Indie-poppers The Brilliant Corners had a mean way with a single during their time. This compilation gathers up all 10 of them, along with their B-sides and a bunch of previously unreleased demos and live versions. Heart On Your Sleeve - A Decade In Pop: 1983-1993...view item »


The Radio Dept
Clinging To A Scheme

Clinging To A Scheme was The Radio Dept.’s 2010 return, after several years away, to reclaim their position at the top of the Swedish indie-pop pile. This third album often settles into an intoxicating dreamy haze of vocals, soft guitars and organ, but also grabs influence from P-funk: real beats! Reissue from Lab...view item »


Spring King
Who Are You?

Spring King are a band who cite a wide variety of influences, but the ones that they show in their music seem to be Arcade Fire, Ty Segall and Black Lips making a more polished garage sound. Who Are You is their new single which was produced and mixed by their very own singing drummer, Tarek M...view item »


Peter, Bjorn and John
Breakin' Point

Swedish trio Peter, Bjorn and John were going to call their 7th album Thriller 2, which would have been nice. In the end they plumped for Breaking Point. In contrast to the power pop sound on their previous album Gimme Some they’ve gone for big pop songs here, influenced by the ease with which fe...view item »

It’s time to retrospectively enjoy Air, and enjoy them we will. The French electronic duo have been making music for 20 years now, so they’ve called this ‘best of’ compilation Twentyears. The album features their career’s greatest hits such as Sexy Boy and Kelly Watch The Stars...view item »


Ford And Lopatin
Emergency Room

This is a pretty little thing. The new Ford and Lopatin single is a picture disc 12" that comes in four different variations. They're all pretty similar, though, so I'm not sure I'd recommend shelling out the full fifty-six smackers for the set...the only variation between them is a different X-ray picture on the B-sides. Musically, we've got th...view item »

Nico Yaryan
What A Tease

Nico Yaryan was, until recently, pursuing a musical career as the drummer in Hanni el Khatib. But there is more to his skills than drums, as this brand new solo material demonstrates: Yaryan sings and songwrites here, producing some smooth, laid-back indieish numbers. His debut solo LP What ...view item »


Super Furry Animals
Mwng

It’s reissue time for the alt kings of Wales. The fourth album by Super Furry Animals is a lo-fi effort that’s packed with pop sensibilities. Notably their first release with lyrics entirely sung in Welsh, Mwng was described by Rhys as their ‘pop strike’ after failing to make chart headway in Eng...view item »


Amber Arcades
Fading Lines

Heavenly records release Fading Lines, the dreamy debut from Amber Arcades. Beach House’s slow melancholy is an obvious reference for the group, but they add enough unique instrumental touches and electronic textures to stand out. This inventive indie-pop is perfect to dri...view item »


Fear of Men
Fall Forever

Fear Of Men present their second full-length record, Fall Forever. The sleeve are offers a guide to their sound: sensual, intimate and close, yet also abstracted, made strange by unusual textures. That darkness is very welcome, as it casts an interesting light on the group&rs...view item »


Darren Hayman
Thankful Villages Vol. 1

Darren Hayman (formerly of Hefner), themed this release (the first in a series of 3, we are told) around visits to English villages: specifically, the ones who lost no soldiers during World War 1. This heavy subject matter leads to intimate music, with each song of Thankful Villages Vol. 1 exploring the...view item »


Kib Elektra
Blemishes EP

You might have heard or seen Abi Bailey’s many instrumental performances alongside artists like M.I.A. and Brian Eno, but you probably haven’t heard her as a solo artist. As Kib Elektra, she sings delicate songs over a backdrop of synth, guitar and international fiel...view item »

Pink Gum

Debut full-length LP from tuneful Scandinavian indie-pop outfit Magic Potion, who play with a nonchalant charm.

Flume
Skin

Another set of main-stage big tunes from Australian producer Flume. Skin is an example of the consummate modern electronic pop album, pulling in bits and pieces of different dance musics to make a banging whole. The range of vocal guests is very impressive, including Little Dragon, Little Dragon...view item »


Catfish and The Bottlemen
The Ride

The second record from unfathomably popular indie rock group who have proved that having the worst name in the history of pop music and producing music that is by numbers at best is absolutely no hindrance to world domination. Kind of like a Manic Street Preachers without the politics which despite my personal despair leads to a...view item »

Choreography

Coming up with other pioneers of the repeato-bandname genre such as Everything Everything, Cheeky Cheeky, Now Now, and bunch of other ones I might have made up, Bright Light Bright Light certainly feel like a blast from the past: it's been three years since they released 'Life Is Easy' but their indie rock indie rock now melts i...view item »


The Beach Boys
Pet Sounds

Recorded music doesn’t get more iconic than this. Influential as it is, there’s nothing quite like Brian Wilson’s masterpiece, with its magical harmonies and arrangements. It’s hard to get jaded about or tired of. If you’ve somehow managed to avoid this album, no matter what you’re into, you o...view item »


Prince
Controversy

The recently-departed Prince was always happy to pursue Controversy. This fourth album of his achieves that by combining Prince’s super-sexual obsessions with political comment (see ‘Ronnie, Talk to Russia’ for example). All to the funkiest imaginable synth-grooves, needless to say. Vi...view item »


Paul Draper
EP ONE

EP One is the solo debut release of former Mansun frontman Paul Draper. Over the three tracks Draper gives us a revenge-themed rock ‘n’ roll blunderbuss, a 6-minute epic that could soundtrack a spy movie and a shimmering pop song. Mansun fans will be clammering to get their mitts on this....view item »

Oh Inhuman Spectacle

Methyl Ethel is the brainchild of Perth resident Jake Webb, who planned and actualised every last sound on this debut album of the project (live, they are a trio).

Companion’s 4 tracks were recorded in the same sessions as Braids’ album Deep In This Iris, and carry the feel of that record while also fitting rather well with one another. Fairly beautiful stuff.

Grimes / d'Eon
Darkbloom

A strange record this. Two Montreal artists seemingly united a quest for the perfect left-field future pop & modern Balearic attitude. Lets try the D'eon side first. He's the muntered semi-dread on the sleeve. After an odd new age-flecked opener which is virtually ruined by stuttering frequencies we get into the meat of the record and guess ...view item »

Mirage is the third full-length album from Digitalism, where the Hamburg pair show that they still have the power to create huge chunky dancefloor anthems.
