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

The Lost Tapes Record Club is a project curated by Brian Campbell and Carl Turney of Clinic. The idea is to rediscover lost music such as live bootlegs, long forgotten jam sessions and field recordings. Songs For Secret Apocalypse Vol. 1 is the first in a series of 7” singles containing such music. Side one is Remember Happier Times by Foreign Policy, a band from Sefton which is from 1985. Side two features Blues Skies by Chthonic Tunnels, a dark piece that was recorded in one take.

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.

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.
  • Genre(s):

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Lusts
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.

  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.

Batteries
Human Requirements

Sci-Fi Steven from Bis has a new solo project, and Batteries is the name he’s given it. Human Requirements allows you to sample from the debut album of the project with two tracks, one taken from the record and one exclusive to this 7” release. Politically driven indie-pop released on Do Yourself In.

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Here We Go Magic
Be Small

Here We Go Magic have their fourth album up and ready to go, and it finds them in a more positive mode / mood than ever! Be Small is full of tightly orchestrated pop songs with an ornate proggish twist. Eleven tracks on Secretly Canadian, released in standard formats and as coloured vinyl exclusive to independent shops.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.

Nicolas Godin
Widerstehe Doch Der Sünde

Nicholas Gödin is probably best known to you as half of French duo Air, but he’s been making music of his own as well. His stately electro-orchestral pop single Widerstehe Doch Der Sünde is presented here in its original form, as well as in a wide variety of remix versions by Justin K. Broadrick, Lapalux and Mmoths.

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.     
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Hurts
Surrender

Surrender is the third album from British electronic duo, Hurts. It follows on from their commercially successful albums Happiness and Exile which made the top ten in the UK and several other european countries. It contains the singles Some Kind Of Heaven and Lights and was produced by long-time collaborator Jonas Quant along with Ariel Rechtschaid and Stuart Price.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Half Moon Run
Sun Leads Me On

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Editors
In Dream

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.

Swim Deep
Mothers

Swim Deep are an indie-pop quintet from Birmingham. Mothers is the band’s second album. Their sound is seemingly influenced by the credible pop acts of the early-to-mid ‘80s. The band are part of the emerging B-Town scene in Digbeth along with Peace. On coloured vinyl LP and CD.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Thee Cee Cees
Solution Songs

Thee Cee Cees do that rare thing of explicitly positioning themselves as a political group. So here, with Solution Songs, we have 11 tracks that take on the political status quo with anger, vigour, and old-school rhythm’n’blues. Featuring members of The Bluetones and Joe Strummer’s Mescaleros. Out on Blang.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

The Vaccines
20/20

The Vaccines released their English Grafitti album recently, and people sure did like it (number three in the sales charts). Those people may be happy to see the release of 20/20, a single from the album released as a 7" single. This portion of guitar energy is pressed in a limited edition, on Columbia.

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Mammoth Penguins
Propped Up / Thinking Of You

The first single from debut album Hide And Seek, Propped Up sees Cambridge indie-pop three-piece Mammoth Penguins embrace the punk style of The Slits with the pop songwriting sensibilities of Superchunk. Big choruses for small, sweaty stages. Altogether now! Out on limited blue vinyl 7" on Fortuna POP!
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Dralms
Shook

Vancouver-based artist Christopher Smith takes his laidback five-piece Dralms into rich emotional realms with Shook. Like a less sexy Air or a more sexy Antlers, Dralms are a dreamy, meandering prospect shown in their best light by superbly lush production. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Full Time Hobby.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Ben Folds
So There

Combining his love of stringed instruments and chamber music with his firmly rooted pop sensibilities, Ben Folds is back with ‘So There’. Consisting of eight tracks of chamber pop songs performed by Ben Folds and the yMusic Ensemble, the album also includes a 21 minute piano concerto with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Chad Valley
Entirely New Blue

Chad Valley, in this case, is a writer of colourful and openly expressive pop songs and not a manufacturer of children’s toys. His second album, Entirely New Blue is a complex album of depth and maturity showing that he is progressing in the right direction. His career thus far has seen him collaborate with the likes of Twin Shadow, Glasser and Active Child and have high-profile support slots with the likes of Erasure and Foals.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Swim Deep
Namaste

Highly rated Birmingham indie-pop five piece Swim Deep have a new album out soon entitled Mothers. To wet your palate, a 7” of Namaste will be preceding its release. The single will be backed with Everything is Possible which is exclusive to this release. It's limited to 500 copies so don't hang around!
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

New Order
Music Complete

And just like that, a brand new New Order album! Music Complete is their first since 2013, and is notable for a complete lack of Peter Hook, who grumped his way out of the band a while back. A fresh, Mute-worthy sound, wrapped up in a typical Peter Saville sleeve! Available on double LP (only black vinyl now) and CD!
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

U.S. Girls
Half Free

We don’t know many people who spend their free time listening to U.S. Girls, like, talk, or whatever. Unless they’re actually Toronto-based Meghan Remy on her new album Half Free. Working with members of DFA and Fucked Up, she’s put together a frightening piece of crystal clear electronic art-pop.

  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Youth Lagoon
Savage Hills Ballroom

Savage Hills Ballroom is a significant record for Youth Lagoon main man Trevor Powers, apparently seeing him trying to peel back both personal limits and sonic restraint. The result is a record that is deeply personal whilst also sweeping grandly through an array of electronic soundscapes, pop sensibility always at the fore.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Fever The Ghost
Zirconium Meconium

Zirconium Meconium showcases the sound of Fever The Ghost, a weirdo-pop four-piece. A psychedelic core certainly runs through the ideology of the group, but the sounds they work with marshal synths, drums, guitars and heavily-reverbed, lightly-unhinged vocals. Comes out sounding quite nice. On Heavenly.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Roseau
Salt

The Rouseau sound essentially melds soulful, introspective pop vocals with serious sub-bass and spacious synthesiser melodies. Salt has a strong feeling of simmering intimacy, like a mournful contemplation of love gone wrong. This is Roseau’s first record for the Big Dada label, and comes as a CD or as an LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Telekinesis
Ad Infinitum

An assured fourth album from Seattle-based Telekinesis, Ad Infinitum is gloriously bathed in analogue electronics and features Michael Lerner's trademark knack for infectious power pop melodies of the highest order. Out on Digipak CD and vinyl LP from Merge. LP includes 3 bonus tracks and free download code.

Hooton Tennis Club
Kathleen Sat On The Arm Of Her Favourite Chair

Hooton Tennis Club have their full-length debut lying just around the corner, but for now here is another single to whet appetites. Kathleen Sat On The Arm Of Her Favourite Chair is a friendly slice of indie pop, with some mega-twee lyrics about going for a walk in the park / going swimming. Sweet. 7” on Heavenly.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Salad Boys
Metalmania

DIY indie pop in that rich New Zealand tradition, that’s what we have here with Salad Boys. The album title, Metalmania, is a bit of a misnomer really. This debut full-length is a fleet-footed thing, bouncing poppy melodies along over a guitar / rhythm section churn. Satisfying stuff. Released by Trouble In Mind.

Small Black
Best Blues

Small Back (the name presumably referencing Steve Albini’s Big Black?) release their third album, a well-polished slab of busily-textured electronic indie. Airy vocals waft through walls of synths and beats, and the general tone of Best Blues’ sound borders on ecstatic. On Jagjaguwar; coloured vinyl version exclusive to independent record stores.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Claptone
Charmer

Debut full-length album from Claptone, an up-and-coming house-pop producer. The tracks on Charmer can and do go down very well on dancefloors, but there are touches of other styles too: the record does feature guest appearances from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Peter, Bjorn & John after all. CD or gold vinyl 2LP.

Real Lies
Real Life

Real Lies release Real Life, their debut full-length. Perhaps some meaning suggested by that parallel eh? Well the band do say that they set out to capture the paradoxical experience of young people today: and what better medium for that than electronic pop, which can be ecstatic and melancholy all at once? On Marathon Artists.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Baio
The Names

It’s the season of solo projects here at Norman Records. Known as the bass-player for upbeat rockers Vampire Weekend, Baio has released a few catchy EPs. Now he’s treating us to a proper full-length album, which navigates the outskirts of poppy electronics. The Names combines those explorations to create a satisfying and accessible listening experience.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Giorgio Tuma with Malik Moore
My Lively Youth

Italian Giorgio Tuma is a punk at heart. He loves The Clash. In his teens however, strange new influences crept into his brain. Stereolab stood out to him and this led him to the likes of Os Mutantes and the bossa nova of Getz and Gilberto. His music generally mixes ‘60s pop, soft rock and easy listening into a very likeable sound. On My Lively Youth, a collaboration with Malik ‘The Freq’ Moore, he tries his hand at bluebeat soul and succeeds. The b-side features a dub remix by Sean O’Hagan of The High Llamas.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Air Waves
Parting Glances

Nicole Schneit's Air Waves project returns with a second album drawing on an array of Brooklynite talent including  friends from Hospitality, Ava Luna, Woods and Crystal Stilts alongside Jana Hunter (Lower Dens). Schneit's songs remain thoughtful meditations on interpersonal relations while her gently rocking soundworld is enriched by the contributions of her comrades.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Mild High Club
Timeline

If Black Moth Super Rainbow got loaded on Quaaludes, maybe Mild High Club is what would happen. Their debut album Timeline is a severely poppy trip (not to be confused with a severe poppy trip), the songs coming at you through a dream-like sludge. Abandon your expectations, because Alexander Brettin will surprise you anyway.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Fenster
Emocean

Fenster’s new record is the soundtrack to Fenster’s new film, Emocean. The band put the indie sci-fi picture together themselves, and from the sound of this musical accompaniment, it is probably quite a stylised, psychedelic production. Fenster’s third record of groovy indie is released by Morr Music.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Micachu & The Shapes
Good Sad Happy Bad

After multiple outings composing soundtracks and contemporary classical pieces, Micachu is back with her band The Shapes for Good Sad Happy Bad. A hefty jam between the three showed them the way, and the record consequently has a beautifully fresh and free sound. Quality energy music, release on Rough Trade.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Ms. John Soda
Loom

Ms. John Soda are a German duo made up of Stephanie Bohm and Micha Acher. Acher has played with The Notwist among others so it’s probably not surprising that they make a kind of indie-electronica hybrid. Loom is their third album and first recording since 2006’s Notes and the Like which was critically lauded.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Empress Of
Me

Empress Of is the recording alias of Lorley Rodriguez. She has spent most of 2014 recording and producing her debut album entitled Me. Lyrically, as the title may suggest, the album is of a personal nature with her thoughts and opinions laid out as if it were her diary. On Vinyl LP and Cd on Terrible Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Tamaryn
Cranekiss

Tamaryn marries the always-welcome sound of shoegaze with celestial pop songs, the waveringly massive (and often groovy) backgrounds of guitar and synth supporting some bold pop vocals. Cranekiss, Tamaryn's third album, has to be their finest effort so far. On Mexican Summer, with a bonus booklet accompanying the indies-only LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Superhumanoids
Do You Feel OK?

Superhumanoids have a track on new record Do You Feel OK? titled ‘Norwegian Black Metal’, but don’t be fooled: this group would not go down well on a black metal bill. No, this is really an electronic-dance-rock band, a bright and anthemic thing to make people move and smile. Released by Innovative Leisure.

Amateur Best
The Gleaners

Amateur Best is Birmingham-based songwriter Joe Flory whose debut album No Thrills was a promising foray into bedroom pop. Apparently beginning life as a concept album about a doll’s house, The Gleaners quickly morphed into an all-out dance record, whilst retaining the melancholy of previous work. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Brille.

Monika
Secret In The Dark

Monika, full name Monika Christodolou, grew up in Greece in a home where music was at the fore and with a family that regularly travelled. Her early years have seemingly shaped the travel hungry multi-instrumentalist. She had a hit in 2006 with Over The Hill which caused a bit of a stir in her homeland. She followed this with two successful albums and headline slots at Greek festivals. On a trip to New York in 2012 she plucked up the courage to pay a visit to Daptone Records and met Homer Steinweiss. After Steinweiss was impressed by her demos they began working together. The result is Secret In The Dark - a mix of ‘80s art pop and punchy ‘70s disco funk. Think Machine Gun by The Commodores with a Teutonic edge.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Doe Paoro
After

Doe Paoro is a bright new voice in the indie electro-pop world. Working with past associates of Bon Iver and The Tallest Man On Earth, she has built up a series of dense productions infused with original 80’s synth-pop spirit. Just as well suited to a road trip montage in a film or to a yacht party DJ set. Released by the Anti label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Disclosure
Caracal

Dance duo Disclosure aka Surrey siblings Howard and Guy Lawrence were hugely successful with their million-selling debut, Settle. Sam Smith made his name with a guest vocal on their hit Latch. Their new album, Caracal, therefore has been eagerly anticipated. Sam Smith guests again on the track Omen and there are other high-profile names along for the ride too with Gregory Porter, Lorde and Kwabs putting in appearances.

The Bluetones
Return To The Last Chance Saloon

Reissue of the 1998 album by The Bluetones. Return To The Last Chance Saloon was one of the group’s most popular records, and it is itself returned to by this expanded reissue. The full original album is boosted with a live Newcastle gig, BBC radio sessions from the period, and each band member’s favourite B-sides. Re-pressed by 3 Loop Music.

Lana Del Rey
Honeymoon

New record from quasi-Lynchian pop star Lana Del Rey. Honeymoon has the trademark Del Rey vibe: sunny production and subject matter (the lead single is titled ‘High By The Beach’ for example), but with a pitch dark undercurrent carried through the haunted vocals. Released as a CD, or as double black vinyl.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Peaches
Rub

Like the majority of Peaches output, her new album, Rub, hits hard. Lyrically the album deals with themes such as sex and politics. Musically, Peaches production defies genre pigeon-holing. Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth and fellow Canadian, Feist make guest appearances on the opening and closing tracks respectively.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Silicon
Personal Computer

Personal Computer is the fine new record from Kody Nielson's project Silicon. This has to be the funkiest album to come out of New Zealand in years, mixing the textures and the compositional feel of disco and electo-pop with full-fledged songs. On Weird World, as a CD, an LP, and a deluxe LP edition with a book of art prints.
  • Genre(s):

Larry Gus
I Need New Eyes

Versatile Greek sampler and composer Panagiotis Melidis, better known as Larry Gus, invites us to drink in the infinite musicality of all the sounds around us. On his new album I Need New Eyes, with its rather painful album cover, Larry combines a rich multitude of samples with complex rhythms and catchy melodies.

California Owls EP

Hot on the heels of their much adored 'To Where The Wild Things Are' album, Death and Vanilla have given us another treat in the form of this limited edition 12" EP. It contains two songs from the album and two previously unreleased tracks which showcase perfectly their vintage retro-futurist sound which has drawn comparisons with Broadcast and Stereolab. Limited to 1000. On green vinyl.

SEA + AIR
Evropi

SEA + AIR are a married duo with a pan-european outlook. Evropi is their second record of what they call ‘ghost pop’: this term doesn’t seem to refer to hauntology, but rather the resurfacing of instruments and styles of old Europe in the midst of full-blown pop songs. Evropi is released on the Glitterhouse label.
  • Genre(s):

Lucero
All a Man Should Do

All A Man Should Do finds Lucero in a gnarly Americana mood. Lyricist and leader Ben Nichols has a snarly tone and a writer’s eye for the interesting parts of human relationships. The music behind him features bold brass, which pulls the regular band line-up onto a higher plane. Released by ATO Records.

This new Metric album, their first for three years, has the band’s classic combination of synthesisers and drum machines with live band and acoustic instrumentation, all lead by Emily Haines’ vocals. Pagans In Vegas is a slick synth-pop slab, released by Crystal Math Music as a CD or as a coloured-vinyl double LP.

Tellison
Hope Fading Nightly

Tellison have their third album to show to the world: another twelve tracks of indie pop-rock! The band seem to have held the sound of the mid-2000s indie boom close to their hearts, and Hope Fading Nightly sounds pretty tightly of that era. They know what they are doing though, with all the anthemic choruses in the right places. On Alcopop.

Paul Smith & The Intimations
Contradictions

Four years in the making, ‘Contradictions’ is the latest record release by Maximo Park leader Paul Smith. The project, which began life on the road, draws in influences far and wide from the charms of the North East to the gritty sounds of Brooklyn and shows a more vulnerable side to this dynamic lone wolf of pop.

Gwilym Gold
A Paradise

Gwilym Gold has produced his debut album, entitled A Paradise. And what a contemporary record it is, combining Gold’s stately talents at the piano with London beat-scene production from the likes of Darkstar and Hyetal. And Nico Muhly even brings the strings! An impressively effective blend of styles, on the Brille label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Gardens & Villa
Music For Dogs

Music For Dogs would appear to be not so much about dogs as about contemporary culture and Los Angeles. No bad thing, as Gardens & Villa kick out with a jittery, overstimulated energy that well suits these modern times. Fast moving synth-pop duo (all the best synth-pop is by duo’s eh?) on the Secretly Canadian label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Peaking Lights
Cosmic Logic

The lush dub pop of Peaking Lights returns for another round with the dutifully titled 'Cosmic Logic', offering up more squeaky electronics, flat-lining beats and eerie good times. They last appeared with 'Lucifer', but 'Entity' makes the synth pop more overt, keeping the minimalist approach but upping the playfulness. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Björk
Notget (Lotic Fromdeath Version)

Part of Bjork’s Vulnicura remix series, in which a favoured artist is given a single sided 12” to reimagine one of the album’s tracks. This one is Lotic’s work, and he chooses to surround Bjork with a churn of organ loops and other, more unidentifiable sounds. The flipside of the vinyl is an etching. On One Little Indian.

Vision
Inertia

What an introduction. Vision’s debut album Inertia will blast off your eyebrows with pure velocity and raw force, imprinting their name on the face of the world. Drowned in noise and distortion, the band's grudging guitars and hazy vocals deliver top notch shoegaze with a tasty West Coast finish.

Beth Orton
Daybreaker

High time for some reissues of Beth Orton albums don’t you think? The Rhino label think so, and thus they have pressed to (180g) vinyl this album, along with Comfort of Strangers. Daybreaker scored into the Top Ten when it was first released in 2002, and it finds Orton in a lounging folktronica mood.

Beth Orton
Comfort Of Strangers

High time for some reissues of Beth Orton albums don’t you think? The Rhino label think so, and thus they have pressed to (180g) vinyl this album, along with Daybreaker. Comfort of Strangers was recorded with the help of Jim O’Rourke as producer, so you just know that every little corner of these compositions shines through clearly.

Neon Indian
VEGA INTL. Night School

Neon Indian has only been sighted in one-offs and collaborations for quite a while now, so it is more than welcome to see the release of VEGA INTL. Night School, his third full-length. Partly recorded on a cruise ship(!!!), the record is suitably trash-groovy and fun, pulling in influence from Palomo’s early dance pseudonym Vega. On Transgressive.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Slime
Company

Slime is the project of Newcastle solo artist Will Archer, who presents his debut with this here album Company. Slinky slow jams refracted through modern indie-electronica production tactics seem to be the order of the day here. Available as standard record or CD, or as independents-only white vinyl with a bonus Slime mixtape!
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Sweet Baboo
The Boombox Ballads

‘The Boombox Ballads’ is the fifth album release from Sweet Baboo. In an effort to move away from the singer/songwriter label he had grown uncomfortable with and focus more on the craft of being a singer, Baboo teamed up with arranger Paul Jones, whose vivid accompaniments channeled the work of the likes of Scott Walker or Harry Nilsson.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Le Millipede
Le Millipede

Le Millipede is the work of one of those impressively capable characters, making whole records himself out of a smorgasbord of instruments. On this self-titled record, he lets his skills go wild, piecing together intricately twinkling percussion lines, with harmoniums, trombones and stylophones carrying the tunes on top. On Alien Transistor.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Gary Numan & Tubeway Army
Premier Hits

Wow! Premier Hits is a full compilation of literal hits from synth-pop pioneer and industrialist Gary Numan, with (of course) his Tubeway Army in tow. The songs are split over four sides of vinyl, the first time this collection has appeared in this format. Includes favourites like ‘Cars’ and ‘Are Friends Electric?’. On Beggars Banquet.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Sylvan Esso
HSKT

Sylvan Esso brings together Meath (Mountain Man) and Sanborn (Megafaun) to form a compelling duo making sharp pop music. HSKT compiles a series of remixes of their single of that name, with artists like Dntel and Hercules & Love Affair stepping up to add increased levels of club shuffle. On Partisan Records.

Meilyr Jones
Refugees / Birds

Meilyr Jones splits this single between a heartfelt solo piano and voice song, Refugees, and the full baroque orchestral sweep of Birds. Both pieces showcase a grand musical style and a reality-rooted lyrical intent, with lines including “switch off the television”. Refugees / Birds is out as a limited edition 12” on Moshi Moshi.

Simon Love
It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time

Simon Love used to make music with his band, The Loves, but now he loves alone. It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time is a homage to seventies-soft-rock-pop records, and consequently is slightly epic. Guests include DJ Emperor Rosko, A Little Orchestra and none other than Stewart Lee! On Fortuna Pop.

Bleeding Heart Pigeons
A Hallucination

I believe this is Bleeding Heart Pigeons debut release, an EP on Virgin EMI. A Hallucination has a slightly epic seam running down the middle of its churning indie rock, not to mention some unusual breakdowns. Everything sounds very fully-formed for such a brand new band. Heavyweight 12" vinyl with band-produced artwork.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

The Strypes
Little Victories

Cherub-like Irish four-piece The Strypes caused a stir with their debut album, Snapshot because they looked (and were) so young yet rocked so convincingly. The band have spent two years touring the world before returning to the studio to record their second album, Little Victories. Expect even bigger things from their second coming!

The View
Ropewalk

The 5th studio album from The View, Ropewalk is produced by some of The Strokes boys and mixed by Justin Gerrish from Vampire Weekend. The View sound a lot more like Vampire Weekend, with that chilled out indie music that washes over you with the occasional catchy hooked laced in. The vocals have a The Police vibe to them and the songs often have that tropical, pina colada feel to them. It’s a pina colada album, paper umbrella and all. On CD and vinyl LP.

Various
Hey Lover Boy! (An Assortment Of Girlie Tracks From The 60s)

Hey Lover Boy! (An Assortment Of Girlie Tracks From The 60s) contains a veritable plethora of lesser known girl group tracks from the 1960s. This 25 track collection will have any avid collector of such sounds watering at the mouth. Hey Lover Boy! (An Assortment Of Girlie Tracks From The 60s) is available on CD.

Rozi Plain
Friend

Friend is the third album by alt-folk practitioner Rozi Plain. The Winchester-born singer/songwriter has roped in of Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor and a few members of Francois & The Atlas Mountains to help on this record. You may have heard the single Actually doing the rounds on 6 Music recently. Definitely worth checking out!

The Fratellis
Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied

The Fratellis are still around! Who knew? Album number four is Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied, and they travelled all the way to LA to make it, arguably giving it a sunnier sound than earlier material recorded in the Scottish homeland. 11 tracks, or 18 if you spring for the deluxe edition or the LP. On Cooking Vinyl.
