Ed Tullett
Fiance

At just twenty-two, Ed Tullett has already garnered plenty of acclaim and here he delivers his debut LP, Fiancé, to show that the acclaim was deserved. Fiancé moves through genres with aspects of R&B moving into drifting dream pop. It straddles the divide between electronic and folk with ease and seems both intimate and epic within the same song. CD or 180g vinyl LP limited to 400 copies with black and white splatter vinyl. Vinyl comes with printed inner sleeve and CD.

Lushlife + CSLSX
Ritualize

Lushlife produces and raps, and duo of CSLSX, whose name is apparently pronounced ‘Casual Sex’, co-produce. The results are cinematic, grand, shiny, like a well-washed humvee sliding down the midnight streets of Los Angeles. Some especially impressive material from Lushlife here: Ritualize is probably his strongest work to date. On Western Vinyl.

Haelos
Full Circle

Debut album from the London trio Haelos after a short run of singles and EP on Matador. They have quite the resume between them, individually being from Get People, Born Blonde, and singer Lotti Benardout being featured on tracks by Redlight and Kidnap Kid. Together they create beats that have an emotional centre based in 90s dance and trip hop with a huge cinematic edge.

Florist
The Birds Outside Sang

Florist began life as a way for Emily Sprague, Rick Spataro and Jonnie Baker to become friends by making noises with synths and guitars. As the trio grew close Florist became a more serious band, touring with Mutual Benefit and Told Slant. They were eventually joined on drums by Felix Walworth of Told Slant. The Birds Outside Sang began after Emily was knocked of her bicycle. Injured, her ability to play keyboards was limited, however, this limitation spawned the first half of the album with Emily making music on her own. The whole band reconvened to record the second half live. Available on coloured vinyl LP and CD on Double Double Whammy.

Prince Rama
Xtreme Now

Before we go any further: good god, that cover. It turns out to be a good fit, both conceptually (Xtreme Now is all about a hallucination-inspired mission to meld art with extreme sports) and sonically: the music is as colourful and confused as that remarkable image. And that isn’t a bad thing! Xtreme Now is a wild ride for ambitious dancers, presented on neon green vinyl.

Lucius
Good Grief

Good Grief is the second album by Brooklyn band Lucius. It is the follow up to their impressive debut Wildewoman, The band’s sound is built around the vocal talents of Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig. The album was recorded after returning home following two years of touring and reflects the emotions the band went through - loneliness, sadness, exhaustion, excitement, fulfilment and sheer joy. Good Grief was produced by Shawn Everett (Weezer, Alabama Shakes) along with the band and legendary producer Bob Ezrin.

You Say Party
You Say Party

Canadian, new wave, four piece dance punks You Say Party are back with their long awaited, self titled new album. Evolving over a period of four years ‘You Say Party’ is a carefully considered and deeply immersive record that builds a dream-like, unreal, sound-scape based on a melancholic sense of loss, introspective uncertainty and longing.

Menace Beach
Super Transporterreum EP

Following January’s Ratworld album, Menace Beach make a super-fast return with the Super Transporterreum EP. Packed with fuzzy melodies it takes the frazzled sonics of 60’s psych and transplants them onto a collection of contemporary power pop gems. What’s not to like? Out on vinyl 12” from Memphis Industries.

How to Recognise a Work of Art

Meilyr Jones new single How To Recognise A Work Of Art is taken from his solo debut album 2013. Its a broadly orchestrated melodic pop number, built out of Jones’ melodramatic vocals, choirs, french harps, bassoons and some horns that parp out a particularly catchy refrain. 7” single, out on Moshi Moshi.

Sea Pinks
Soft Days

Dream-pop, indie-pop, power-pop… It’s all here on Soft Days, the new record from Sea Pinks, a Northern Irish outfit with members of Girls Names and Cruising. Rather than some of the earlier albums, recorded solo in DIY style by singer Neil Brogan, this record is smoothly and clearly produced. Released by CF Records, as CD or LP.
  • CD (CFF42CD)

Ezra Furman
Perpetual Motion People

Chicago via San Francisco artist Ezra Furman releases his third solo album Perpetual Motion People. Like a stateside Jamie T, Furman offers up a splash of upbeat kitchen sink numbers instilled with a smidgen of righteous punk-inspired rebellion and introspective reflection.

The Migrant
Flood

The Migrant is the solo project of Bjarke Bendtson, a Danish singer-songwriter with a mournful voice and a taste for slight psychadelia. Flood is a record that sonically crosses the Atlantic to nestle in comfortably with the kind of quality Americana we’ve heard from the likes of Midlake over the last decade. Released by Rockpie.

Kelley Stoltz
In Triangle Time

Kelly Stoltz has a slick hand for off-key indie pop, throwing out busily layered, craftily written, joyously performed numbers like it ain’t no thing. In Triangle Time he increases the synth quotient, but still keeps things close to the ground. Twelve fun tracks, out on John Dwyer’s energetic Castle Face label.

Blank Realm
Illegals In Heaven

Guitar wallowers Blank Realm have made something of a slow-burning pantomime on Illegals In Heaven, rerouting their noisy punk aesthetic into a sound caught between the lethargy of Psychic TV and the dynamism of Half Japanese. This record of pop tunes moves slowly and with wearied measure, songs attaching drumbeats only as a gesture of good will. It was produced by dronelord Lawrence English, to boot.

Lil BUB
Science & Magic

Lil BUB is a cat! An actual cat! Whooah! Quirky! From the cutesy name through to the cutesy concept, this is truly a contemporary internet-age record. Science & Magic is the debut full-length for this cat (and its band): turns out felines really like electro-pop! Who knew. CD / LP, with the coloured vinyl available only from independent stores.

Owen Maercks
Teenage Sex Therapist

Here's a fascinating bit of late '70s outsider pop from Owen Maercks, originally pressed privately in the hope of securing a record deal but was too hard-to-pigeonhole for any labels to bite. It's now been rescued from history's trash heap by Feeding Tube records, who present its scratchy Talking Heads-meets-Modern Lovers-meets-Devo new wave pop on an official release for the first time here.

Panda Bear
Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper

Animal Collective's drummer, Beach Boys' drone aficionado and only living bear has a new record out to chew at the corners of. Panda Bear was last seen with Tomboy, a fittingly delayed and overdue record of slow, grey-scale jams, and returns now with the strobe-lit Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, which puts his voice at the forefront for once but offers the same disorientating take on sunshine pop.

Adele
25

Adele returns! I see she’s sticking to the age-themed album titles, so here we have 25. You can expect to hear about 5 of these tracks in heavy circulation over the next year, so get in early and hear them in the context of the record! More grandiose pop-soul, showcasing that unfathomably popular voice (and those overly pained emotions). On XL Recordings.

Mystery Jets
Curve of the Earth

Mystery Jets pull slightly away from their psychedelic-indie-pop routes slightly on new album Curve of the Earth, making a Foals-esque move into deeper, darker, more melancholy songwriting. It fits them pretty well in fact, lead single ‘Telomere’ rising and falling between quiet piano passages and firmer crescendoes. Out on Caroline International.

Passion Pit
Kindred

Happy-go-dancy indie rockers Passion Pit are finally back with a new album. Kindred is filled to the brim with high pitched vocals, joyful synthesizers and extremely energetic beats that carry the whole thing. Here’s hoping the album is up to the same level as 2009’s Manners. We are ready for amazing things to happen.

The Vaccines
Handsome

They are not altogether bad the Vaccines are they? There are certainly worse crimes than writing insanely catchy pop tunes. This latest offering is the first thing to come from their upcoming album which is due in May. That's a long time to wait so get your fix now. The tune sorta sounds like what I imagine the Drums wish they sounded like - a compressed slab of post-Strokes indie. It's produced by Dave Fridmann (F'Lips, MRev etc) but I couldn't tell as it doesn't have that big drum sound.

Jenny Lee
Right On!

Jenny Lee is Jenny Lee Lindberg from Warpaint. Right On! is her debut album. Guests appearing on the album include Norm Block, from ‘90s goth-rockers Plexi, who also produced the album with Jenny Lee, Dan Elkan from Them Hills and Broken Bells and Warpaint cohort Stella Mozgowa. The album’s sound has some elements of the Warpaint sound whilst adding new wave and goth to the mix.

Farao
Till It's All Forgotten

Originating from the Nordic mountain valleys of Valdres, London based Farao makes emotionally intense, explorative, celestial pop music that reflects the serenity and depth of the majestic landscape of her homeland. ‘Till It’s All Forgotten’ comprises ten tracks composed and orchestrated almost exclusively by this ethereal multi instrumentalist.
  • Vinyl LP (FTH235LP)

Tuff Love
Dregs EP

Tuff Love have always had a lo-fi ethos but their sound is more polished. Dreggs EP follows on from their two highly regarded EPs Junk and Dross and their Record Store Day 7” single Groucho. Dreggs is a pristine piece of DIY indie pop and could be their best yet. 10” Yellow vinyl on Lost Map.

Badly Drawn Boy
The Hour Of Bewilderbeast

One of the reasons Damon Gough has turned to drink must be down to the fact that he has never come anywhere near to bettering his debut work. This album and the EPs that preceded it contain all his early folky musings when he didn't really care what anyone thought of him. It still sounds superb today and has a raggle taggle charm that was lost when he started seeing himself as a rock star. Whatever you think of him now, he still manages to perform this album live following the kind of drinking that would see lesser mortals take to their beds. Essential re-issue with loads of bonus tracks and 'kinky' leatherette sleeve.

Django Django
Pause Repeat

Taken from Django Django’s second album Born Under Saturn, Pause Repeat is a joyous, summer-filled pop song. Now it’s been pulled apart and reassembled by the likes of Debruit, Clap! Clap!, Bok Bok, and JD Twitch of Optimo. Expect some excellently percussive reimaginings. 12” vinyl available on Because Music.

Lamb
5

Lamb released 5 (suitably enough, their fifth album) in 2011, the first recorded results of their reformation after a half-decade away. People seemed to like it, so it is now reissued in deluxe style by Music On Vinyl, who have pressed up 1000 copies to 180g silver vinyl. This version also includes two bonus tracks, one featuring Damien Rice.

Destroyer
Poison Season

First Destroyer full-length since the very popular Kaputt way back in 2011. Poison Season mixes the song styles Destroyer is known for, from close confessional quiet numbers to bombasted, almost-70s-Springsteen-esque big tunes. All with a sophisticated and witty lyrical sensibility. Released on the Dead Oceans label.

Mirrors

Yes it’s true, Reverend & The Makers are up to their fifth album! Who would have thought it? Them Makers have maintained their indie rock sound, although a 23 minute dub version of the track ‘Mirrors’ (exclusive to all formats apparently) shows us what could have been. Plus a DVD with the deluxe CD version! On Cooking Vinyl.

Dark Sky Island

After a glittering career which has spanned nearly 30 years and a number of awards including four Grammys and an Ivor Novello award, Irish songstress Enya is back with a new album. Dark Sky Island was three years in the making and comes seven years after her last album And Winter Came. Dark Sky Island is euphoric, optimistic, in places hymnal wrapped in expansive production that recalls Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound.

Beat Mark / The Proper Ornaments
Flowers / Two Weeks

Flowers/Two Weeks is a split single that represents the culmination of a beautiful Anglo-French union that has built up over recent years between British band The Proper Ornaments and their french counterparts, Beat Mark. Beat Mark have an indie-pop jangle that recalls Orange Juice and Aztec Camera whist The Proper Ornaments, who feature Max Claps from Let’s Wrestle and James Hoare of Veronica Falls and Ultimate Painting marry the 12-string chimes of The Byrds with the poppier moments of The Velvet Underground. This is an indie-pop lovers dream!

Clean Cut Kid
Runaway

Liverpool’s Clean Cut are very proud of their new single Runaway, a song whose lyrical focus is pretty bleak but whose music is pretty bouncy. Lines like “you’ll never known until reality bites / until it bites you” aren’t too special, but the general tone is effective as an expression of young existential fear. With big choruses!

Girl At The End of The World

It has apparently been 32 years since James formed: hard to believe eh? After such a long stint, they’ve elected to make a brand new record (their fourteenth). The Girl At The End Of The World is an electronically tinged set of excited indie numbers, the band obviously still enjoying the creative process. CD or double LP.

The Space Lady / Burnt Ones
Split

LA residents Burnt Ones describe their brand of fuzzy psychedelia as “amateur” and “guesswork” which suggests to me they have a sense of humour at least. They asked the otherworldly Space Lady to split an album with them and she said yes. Side one belongs to her - she glides through dreamy, lo-fi synth versions of Across The Universe, Starman and Somewhere Over The Rainbow and adds the odd original tune to the mix. Side two sees Burnt Ones do what they do, which in this case includes a version of the Space Lady classic, Synthesize Me.

Members of Hot Chip, The Drink, The Clientele and The Left Outsides make guest appearances.

M83
Digital Shades Vol.1

The first in M83’s ongoing ambient series Digital Shades, founding member Anthony Gonzales explores a world of M83 songs, but without those pummeling drums.

Mueran Humanos

Miseress is the second album from Argentinian duo Mueran Humanos. They manage to create dark foreboding pop. Imagine the captivation of Coil with some analogue warmth and depth of How To Destroy Angels all chucked in and mixed at Einsturzende Neubauten's studio, and I think you get a pretty good idea.

The Chills
The BBC Sessions

Over three years in the mid-eighties, Kiwi pop stars the Chills hopped overseas and recorded some music at the BBC in the process. Thankfully enough, that music was recorded for the Peel Sessions, and the twelve tunes that came out of the good times are now documented on this compilation.

The Spook School
Try To Be Hopeful

Another joyous queer punk outing from The Spook School. Following their critically acclaimed debut, Try To Be Hopeful is a high-quality blend of lo-fi guitar crunch, sizzling pop melodies and intelligent lyrics about sexuality, identity and having a good time.

Long Beard
Sleepwalker

Long Beard, the alias of Leslie Beard from New Jersey, took four years to create Sleepwalker, a mix of woozy vocals and blissful guitar which brings the sound into the realm of bands like Lush; it’s almost eerily beautiful, unsettling and enthralling all at the same time. One to listen to at twilight with a nice glass of red. 
  • Vinyl LP (TL88LP)

Martin Courtney
Many Moons

Martin Courtney is the frontman of indie dudes Real Estate, but for Many Moons he has stepped aside to do some solo work. The songs he performs here are a little more inward-looking, and are produced with a slightly psychedelic haze: very pleasing. Additional parts by James Taveniere of Woods. On Domino.
  • CD (WIGCD363)

ODESZA
Light EP

ODESZA follow up their hugely popular album In Return with this new single, featuring the very welcome vocals of Little Dragon. Lush electronic sonics, swelling to big crescendoes.

The Lost Tapes Record Club
Songs For Secret Apocalypse Vol. 1

Side two features Blues Skies by Chthonic Tunnels, a dark piece that was recorded in one take.

Lamb
Fear Of Fours

Fear Of Fours is the second album by English electro-pop duo Lamb. It was originally released in 1999. The title makes reference to the pair’s dislike of the four/four time signature that electronic music seemed to automatically fall into. Instead Lamb, with their blend of singer/songwriter and drum ‘n’ bass styles, strove to use very different and challenging time signatures. The fourth track is not listed on the back either, so perhaps they genuinely had a fear of the number four.

Brolin
The Delta

The debut album from the mysterious Brolin arrives in all its minimalist glory. Having brushed shoulders with the likes of Luke Abbott and Peaking Lights, The Delta sees the UK producer stepping out alone. It’s all about instilling his heartfelt songs with shimmering production and house-tinged electronics. A confident effort. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Megastromo Recordings.

Luke Haines
British Nuclear Bunkers

Luke Haines has a gruelling concept for for his latest LP. British Nuclear Bunkers is about just that: a post-nuclear-apocalypse world of underground bunkers. Conveyed, naturally enough, through the medium of analogue synths squeezed into a rock-like format. 10 tracks and a bonus 7” for purchasers of the vinyl. On Cherry Red.
  • Vinyl LP (BRED669)

Autre Ne Veut
Age of Transparency

Arthur Ashin’s work as Autre Ne Veut tends to take R&B and tweak it with bits of various other musical styles. Age Of Transparency is his most varied yet, but he always builds around a rich pop core. Joel Ford of Ford & Lopatin helped with production, lending the kind of dense synthetic textures he excels at. On Downtown.

The Shoes
Chemicals

Chemicals is the third album by French electronic duo The Shoes (not the ‘70s US power-pop band!) Taking their influences from coldwave, ‘90s UK trance, new wave and EDM and fuelled by pizza and sushi these ten tracks were recorded in New York, Paris, London and Reims. They enlisted the help of many vocalists including Mystery Jets frontman Blaine Harrison, Esser, SAGE and Black Atlass.

Illuminations

Everybody Lusts for some vintage chorus-soaked pop songs every now and then, and so does Lusts. Their debut Illuminations sheds some light on the Stone brothers’ love for the combination of vintage sound and modern pop-songs, and includes their three catchy singles Waves, Mouthwash and Temptation. You'll have to bring your own tie-dye.

Pixx
Fall In EP

This is the very first release from Pixx, a new artist from the countryside that borders London’s sprawl. She is both a soulful singer-songwriter and a canny electronic producer, and the Fall In EP shows that she can merge those two practices together very well indeed. She’ll go far. Debut 12” record on 4AD.

Kirsten Morrison
Double, Double, Toil And Trouble (feat. Lene Lovich)

Double, Double, Toil and Trouble is based on Macbeth in case you didn’t realise: you should have done though, as Kirsten Morrison has basically set that whole speech to music. Witchy operatic vocals with assistance from Lene Lovich, backed by gothy, melodramatic music. Good for Halloween. 200 7” copies only, on Microspiral.

Braids
Deep In This Iris

Deep In The Iris is the third album by experimental pop band, Braids. The three-piece upped sticks from Montreal, Canada to record the album in Vermont, the mountains of Arizona and upstate New York. Deep In The Iris delivers both power and fragility from it’s lush acoustic instrumentation and refined electronics. Although the album has a neatly presented, almost clinical form, there is a human warmth to these songs. Despite some difficult subject matter in the songs, this is regarded as their brightest and most accessible record to date.

Dan Friel
Life

Dan Friel comes at things the right way, starting with a small, simple set-up and wringing all he can out of it. In his case, a Yamaha Portasound toy keyboard is at the core of everything, Friel overcranking it and using it to mimic a whole range of instruments. Life is a record of high-energy, lo-fi melodic dance songs: lots of fun! On Thrill Jockey.

Skylar Spence
Prom King

Ryan DeRobertis's development of a live act involving a full band has influenced the evolution of his music to the extent that his latest album as Skylar Spence is a fuller bodied effort than ever before, drawing on disco, R&B and UKG along with his trademark plaintive vocals. Fans of Chromeo, Hall & Oates, Daft Punk and the 90s wave of Chic-like filtered funk will appreciate these grooves.

Olga Bell
Incitation

Olga Bell has a knack for detail: some of the tracks on new mini-album Incitation are stripped back to the minimum of elements: clipped beats and distant bass backdrops. Bell’s excellent voice is always present though, sounding intimate and close in the midst of these wide, sparse soundscapes. On One Little Indian.

Simon Love
The New Adam And Eve

Here we have the lead single from Simon Love’s new album It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time. The song, titled The New Adam And Eve, is a tale of a jealous lover longing to attack and brutalise anyone he perceives as competition, told over a jaunty indie-chamber-pop tune. An Oasis cover on the B-side.

Akase
Murmur

Akase is the joint work of Harry Agius (who produces as Midland) and songwriter Robbie Redway. Together, they make electro-pop with full-blown club credentials: Murmer clicks boldly into action at the start before Redway’s soulful vocals move in. The track is supported by two remixes from Ewan Pearson. 12” on !K7.

Kindness
World You Need A Change Of Mind

The press release describes this re-issue as long awaited but also notes that the original album was released in 2012. That's just three years ago - not that long. Anyway it showcases ol' longhair before he disappeared completely up his own arse. He's at his best here with his brand of smooth updates on all those '70's and '80's soul smoochers you love so much. Slinky.

Alex G
Beach Music

Beach Music is the seventh album by Lo-fi troubadour Alex G and follow-up to DSU which was no.37 in Norman’s top 50 albums of 2014. Alex G, full name Alex Giannascoli, takes his influences from all sorts of American indie of the ‘90s, mainly the good stuff - Pavement etc. The album was mixed by Jacob Portrait of Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Beach Music is likely to reach the places his other albums didn’t as he has now signed to indie giant, Domino Records.

Die Katapult
Kristall Reinheit

Die Katapult are half Spanish and half Swedish (although apparently they prefer German to either of their native languages, having titled every part of this release auf Deutsche). Kristall Reinheit somehow moves from Toru Takemitsu-esque strings to moody Euro-synth-pop and makes it work. White 10” vinyl mini-album on Elefant.

NAKED
Youth Mode

Straight from the stables of LuckyMe’s finest, Edinburgers NAKED are releasing their debut. Supposedly, Youth Mode deals with the problems we all face on a daily basis: anonymity in crowds and the limits of online interaction, all set to dreamy melodies from guitar and vox. Meanwhile, expect cold and stark beats in contrast. Think the XX and FKA Twigs.

Julia Holter
Have You In My Wilderness

‘Have You In My Wilderness’ is a collection of dreamy, atmospheric, intimate ballads textured with the imagery inspired by various literary references, exploring familiar themes such as love and human relationships in a way that is enigmatic and slightly unnerving. The record seems to be drawn from a more personal source than her first two releases.

Chorusgirl
Chorusgirl

Chorusgirl (apparently named in reference to frontwoman Silvi Wersing’s experiences of playing supporting roles in other bands) are a noise pop band heavy on the pop. The songs are tuneful and bouncy, with that breezy vibe that the best of this kind of material always has (but with heavy lyrical content). On Futura Pop.

Starsailor
Love Is Here

Love is Here was originally released in 2001 when there was a post-britpop boom in singer/songwriter-type bands such as Coldplay and David Gray. Starsailor, named after a Tim Buckley album, very much fit in with that crowd. The band won many fans for their earnest songs and the strong voice of vocalist James Walsh.

Can we call this post-Biffy Clyro? Post Temper Trap? Perhaps not, but that’s sure to put you in the ballpark. Sun Leads Me On is the second album from Canadian band Half Moon Run. It’s heart on sleeve stuff that’s sure to do obscenely well at the summer festivals. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Glassnote.

The Clientele
Alone & Unreal: The Best Of The Clientele

The Clientele were a bunch of school friends from Hampshire who shared a love of Galaxie 500, Felt and The Zombies. In the early ‘90s, from this template they created their own version of pop music - pure, distanced and haunting. The band re-invented their sound in the mid-’00s with bigger, brighter production and deeper atmospherics. Alone & Unreal: The Best Of The Clientele compiles their best work from their 24 year career.

This is The Editors fifth studio album, ‘In Dream’ and their second release featuring the ‘new’ line up of the band with founding members Tom Smith, Russell Leetch and Ed Lay being joined by Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams. Following two years of intensive world tours, the five piece has taken a step away from the straighter, rock aesthetic of albums like ‘The Weight Of Your Love’ and has moved towards a more electro pop inspired sound, reminiscent of their third album ‘In This Light And On This Evening’. Slowdive's Rachel Goswell guests.

Iko Cheri
Dreaming On

Marie Merlet (performing here as Iko Cheri )essentially decided to get serious about making music after being asked to do so by Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab, and that makes for a pretty strong recommendation. Dreaming On is a suitably dreamy set of gentle Gallic pop songs that sound like they’ve been dozing in the sun. On Elefant.

Mercury Rev
The Light In You

Oooh look, a new Mercury Rev album looms on the horizon! The Light In You is the first we've heard from the group since Snowflake Midnight a full seven (!) years ago. 2015-era Rev material is sweeping and symphonic again, Jonathan Donahue's nigh-on Disney vocals swooping above a mixture of elaborate instruments. Out on Bella Union.

Chvrches
Every Open Eye

Chvrches return with Every Open Eye, their second album. This is an impressively full-blown synth-pop record, almost recalling a Taylor Swift or a Robyn. Pretty notable levels of craft for a band only two records in. The last album sold plenty, and this one sounds like it could sell yet more… On Virgin / EMI.
