Hannah Lou Clark
It's Your Love

Hannah Lou Clark follows up her attention-grabbing Silent Type EP with It’s Your Love, a new set of songs whose genesis lie in touring. Definitely plenty of energy flying around, though without losing the introspective aspect of the ly...view item »


HOMESHAKE
In The Shower

This was the first “proper” full-length album release from HOMESHAKE, following a smattering of fine cassettes, initially issued in 2014. Weirdly-tinged bedroom indie-R&B is the name of the game, with main man Peter Sagar slinking around his songs like someone with love on his mind. In The Sh...view item »


The Liminanas
Malamore

The Liminanas are a French band, though you don’t need me to tell you that: just listen to those breath vocals! Malamore is their fourth album, and it finds the band very relaxed in their sonic niche: sunny, sexy, laid-back pop. It must be said, they do it well. Malamore is released by Because Music....view item »


Classixx
Faraway Reach

In approaching their second album Classixx wanted to feature numerous vocalists with varying styles and make themselves the constant that tied them together, so the aptly titled Faraway Reach features How To Dress Well, T-Pain, Passion Pit, De Lux, ...view item »

Jeff Runnings
Primitives and Smalls

Jeff Runnings is usually busy working with his group For Against, but he’s taken some time out to make his solo debut under his own name, Primitives and Smalls. Shiny synth-pop with an 80’s feel is the name of the game, and Runnings is a pro at it. The album is released by S...view item »


Street Chant
Hauora

The Temper Trap
Thick As Thieves

We haven’t heard from Australian fellas The Temper Trap in a full 4 years, but that’s just because of the heavy effort they’ve been putting into new album Thick As Thieves. Widescreen arena pop-rock aplenty here, put together with a keen ear for...view item »


Mike Adams At His Honest Weight
Casino Drone

I’m frankly a little disappointed that Casio Drone isn’t just an album of Casio keyboard drones. But that’s probably a minority opinion, as the actual sound of Mike Adams At His Honest Weight is richly-textured independent pop, warm and friendly and full of wit. There is some ambience too to be fair&he...view item »


Morly
Something More Holy EP

Morly, probably best known as the former singer for Gayngs, shows that her soulful voice isn’t her only musical asset with these solo recordings: her productions are inventive and subtle. This release gathers together last year’s debut solo EP ...view item »

The High Violets
Heroes and Halos

The High Violets have many years of dreampop experience (this is their fifth album), meaning that they can be truly relied upon to provide that special woozy feeling to the listener. Heroes And Halos has learned all the lessons of shoegaze, and marries them to proper pop structures. CDs and a limited edition of 250 viny...view item »


Bloody Knives
I Will Cut Your Heart Out For This

Bloody Knives are an intense proposition, producing what might be considered to be shoegaze via a noise-rock approach. The soundfield is saturated with layers of distorted guitars, delicate vocals floating in the middle. But too much filth is laden on for bliss-out relaxation to be an option. I Will Cut Your Heart Out For Th...view item »


Teleman
Brilliant Sanity

Seeking out the art of the perfect pop song, Teleman’s second album Brilliant Sanity captures some of the joy that went into the creation of the music. Well honed and impeccably played, featuring the four piece, with brothers Tommy and Johnny on vocals, guitar and synth  drummer Hiro Amamiya and Pete Cattermoul on bas...view item »


David Bowie
Bowie at the Beeb: The Best of the BBC Radio Sessions 68 -72

New Order
Tutti Frutti

Even if you are literally New Order, having a Hot Chip remix adorn your single must still be very exciting. Can they do any wrong? It seems not: their version of New Order’s Tutti Frutti has the glorious pop sensibility and the deep dancefloor authority that you’d expect fro...view item »

Yeasayer
Amen & Goodbye

Amen & Goodbye is the fourth album by Brooklyn’s Yeasayer. It follows up their 2012 album Fragrant World but eschews its penchant for all things digital. The lead single, I am Chemistry features vocals from Suzzy Roche of legendary folkies, The Roches. The ba...view item »


Bibio
A Mineral Love

The iconic Warp records bring Bibio’s A Mineral Love to vinyl LP and CD. Bibio is constantly tweaking and developing his sound, and on this album he has shifted towards electronic funk.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra / SILICON

Unknown Mortal Orchestra and SILICON are two solo projects from brothers Ruban and Kody Nielson. On the Phone vinyl 7” the pair remix each other’s work for the Jajaguwar label. Some brotherly competition definitely motivates these playful tracks, but...view item »


Bleached
Welcome The Worms

Bleached return with a follow-up to their sun-kissed debut Ride Your Heart. The rough, and gratifyingly old fashioned, garage of their debut is much the same, but when you have a great melodic and abrasive sound why change it? But Welcome To The Worms is also more ambitious, with great songwriti...view item »


Dinner
Psychic Lovers

Psychic Lovers is the debut album from Danish producer Dinner and it sharpens the melancholy synth pop of his first three EPs. Anders Rhedin’s sound pushes the textures and production of 1980s pop into extremes, including his distinctive croon. By doing this he highlights just how strange and sad thes...view item »

September Girls
Age of Indignation

Grimes
Halfaxa

Halfaxa is the second record from Claire Boucher aka Grimes, originally released in 2010, before she became a tremendously big deal. It still has that home-grown vibe, with Boucher’s hazy productions coalescing around her remarkable vocals like a cloud. The feel is of woozy retrea...view item »


Wild Belle
Dreamland

Wild Belle are a Chicago pair who infuse enough reggae influences into their electro-indie-pop music that they went ahead and recorded Dreamland, their second full-length album, in Jamaica. The record is more than ready to be played on the radio, but welcome little details (a...view item »

Small Disasters EP

Thomas Bertelsen has been actively involved in DJing and production for quite some time: his new alias, TOM And His Computer, now releases its first EP.

Juniper Moon
El Resto De Mi Vida + Singles Y Rarezas 1999-2003

Juniper Moon are lesser-known cult favourites, beloved of certain in-depth pop-punk fans. Their only album, El Resto De Mi Vida, is reissued here along with a disc of Singles Y Rarezas, which means their entire recorded output is here (some of it on vinyl for the first time). Energetic, sunny and gorgeous, lots...view item »

Niagara
Hyperocean

Hyperocean is the third album from experimental pop eccentrics Niagara and rather than easing off, this record is more dense and intense than previous releases.

David Bowie has another new album out!

Lost It All



United Sounds of Joy
United Sounds of Joy

A stunning self-titled debut from United Sounds of Joy. Both artists originally worked together in Dream City Film Club, but as a duo make a downbeat dream-pop with experimental tendencies hidden in catchy hooks.  A really lovely slice of psychedelic noir powered by sultry vocals and elegant arrangements....view item »

Those Efterklang guys are busy people eh? Here they spin-off once more, to help Tatu Rönkkö with his Liima project. ii is their debut album, and is a heavily textured trip, each track bristling with detail. All developed on the fly in a series of week-long residencies. CD or n...view item »


Björk
Gling Glo

I never would have guessed that Bjork could have tackled these songs but, oh, was I wrong. This is the most technically challenging material I've heard her perform and she sounds wonderful, emotional, passionate and at her prime. These are like cabaret songs and her voice is incredible and so well trained. She has no trouble keeping up with the pia...view item »


Death And Vanilla
To Where the Wild Things Are

Recorded using a ten pound microphone they found at a flea market, Death and Vanilla have, on this their third album, really captured the sights, the sounds, the smells of all the best bits of late '60s/early '70s dreamy pop. Their sound is woozy, evocative and blatantly in thrall to the kaleidoscopic sounds of Broadcast, the BB...view item »


Clean Cut Kid
Pick Me Up

Clean Cut Kid are a Liverpool indie band who have yet to release a full-length album. Fans will thus grasp Pick Me Up, their third single, with great enthusiasm. Indie radio anthem status could well await this bouncy pop tune, which is backed by an exclusive demo version of ‘In Your Eyes’. Limited edition Re...view item »


Tancred
Out Of The Garden

The garden in the title of Tancred’s new album Out Of The Garden must surely be the Garden of Eden: these songs are lyrically centred around the transgression of Judeo-Christian norms, with an emphasis on "feminine expectations". The group’s pop-punk power is as strong as ever, driving the message squarely h...view item »


Erasure
Chorus

This is Erasure’s fifth record, a platinum synth-pop super-hit upon release in 1991. But the vinyl edition of Chorus has been out-of-print for most of the intervening years, having never been reissued… Until now! Mute have pressed up a new brace of 180g vinyl copies, presented with the original artwork and ...view item »


Erasure
I Say I Say I Say

This was Erasure’s sixth record, and jumped straight to number 1 upon release in 1994. And yet, the vinyl edition has been long out-of-print! No longer, as Mute have pressed up a new brace of 180g copies of I Say I Say I Say’s majestic synth-pop, presented with the original artwork and packaging....view item »


Erasure
Wild!

This was Erasure’s fourth record, a super-hit when it was released in 1989. With all 4 singles selling very well, it’s fair to say that the bold and bright synth-pop of Wild! played a serious part in defining the sound of that year. And yet, the vinyl edition has been long out-of-print! No longer, as Mute ha...view item »


Masha Qrella
Keys

Masha Qrella’s new record vanquishes the shyness that has played a part in some of her earlier music, replacing it with an emotional forthrightness that bewitches. Keys sings, in detail, about Qrella’s inner life, over subtle electronically-tinged pop songs. Cool, noirish stuff. Out on Morr ...view item »

Modular
Fuga Al Paraiso

The new album by Modular sounds like it could easily be from an old library-music or TV-soundtrack oddity, or maybe a mid-period Stereolab album. Don’t take that as a criticism: not only are the songs of Fuga Al Paraiso executed perfectly in terms of their lounge-kraut-pop style, but the songwriti...view item »


Matthew E White & Natalie Prass
Cool Out

He sings really quietly does Matthew E White. His voice is so soft and gentle, yet also soulful. Here he collabs with pal Natalie Prass who also sings in soft tones. With Stones Throw artist at the controls it all adds up to a classic duet in the style of a heavily stoned 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart'. ...view item »


Neon Indian
Psychic Chasms + Mind CTRL

Psychic Chasms crosses genres and sub-genres and kind of ends up mostly electronic, but very psychedelic chill-wave. Don't think about it too much, it's lovely and that's all that matters. What I most appreciate about the music is that each song is very distinct, a fully realised idea with a sort of beginning, middle and end. No mucking about he...view item »


Neon Indian
Era Extrana + Errata Anex

Era Extrana is very different, but it has grown on me since I first heard it. The first few goes around the songs blend together without any real instant connections, but soon they worm their way into your mind and you find yourself looking for them. Errata Anex contains re-workings from the Era Extrana - The Boyd Rice remix is fantastic. It is ...view item »

Tangible Excitement! / Ginnels

Here’s a split between Irish group Ginnels and excellently-named new band Tangible Excitement! (the exclamation mark is part of the name). Fizzy, energised indie-pop from both sets of players: Ginnels just about have the edge on jangle though. Pressed to various different colours of vinyl:...view item »


Thomas Cohen
Bloom Forever (single)

Bloom Forever is the first single to be taken from Thomas Cohen’s debut album of the same name. The former S.C.U.M. frontman returns with a refined sound that relies on his diverse folk and pop songwriting skills and soft vocals. This vinyl 12” is released by Stolen ...view item »


Hooverphonic
The Magnificent Tree

Hooverphonic's The Magnificent Tree is very particular, and if you're not much into the Trip-Hop sound, you might not dig it. There's some weird ones, like "Frosted Flake Wood"... it's more like soundstage music to some weird psychedelic play and it paints some strange pictures of a boy talking to a psychedelic mushroom who asks the boy to eat h...view item »


Girls Names
Zero Triptych

Girls Names return here with an 11-minute opus on a 12” for Tough Love. Yes - that is the sound of envelopes being pushed by the Irish troupe, whose surfy beginnings seem eons away, here. Their attempt at the Triptych structure establishes some abstract soundscapes before embarking upon a post-punk/new wave tip, w...view item »


Coves
Peel

Coves are an English duo whose music seems like a constant struggle between psychedelic garage and luscious, minimal pop music. Peel, from 1965 Records, does a good job of capturing this dynamic; the glowing production is much more polished, but they’re still committed to lo-fi instru...view item »

Flowers
Everybody’s Dying To Meet You

Flowers follow up their Bernard Butler produced debut with Dying to Meet You, on vinyl LP and CD.

Death Cab For Cutie
Narrow Stairs

Narrow Stairs possibly gets lost between their most recent release Kintsugi and the immaculate Plans album of 2005, but it really shouldn't be.

This album's stand o...view item »
