Piney Gir
mR hYDE'S wILD rIDE

The sound of Piney Gir is a sound of handcrafted playful delicacy: indi pop that dips into all sorts of sounds and genres, a pleasing melodic melange. mR hYDE’S wILD rIDE (which is even more irritating to type than to read) has twelve songs, tracking a loose narrative of Gir’s experiences of life / love / loss. On Damaged Goods.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Nicolas Godin
Contrepoint

After becoming bored with the huge success of AIR, Nicolas Godin has decided to treat us to his solo work. On Contrepoint, one of our favorite 90s French producers sheds a new light on the intricacies of Johann Sebastian Bach’s solo piano works. And, not surprisingly, the result is estranging and enticing.
  • 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

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

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.

I AM LONO
I AM LONO EP

With their new and eccentric post-punk, I AM LONO are one of 2015’s interesting new acts. Their first and self-titled EP raises interesting promises for the band’s future.

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.
  • Genre(s):

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):

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.

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.

First Destroyer full-length since the very popular Kaputt way back in 2011.

All with a sophisticated and witty lyrical sensibility. Released on the Dead Oceans label.

Rough Trade Shops - HEAVENLY 25

The Rough Trade Shops label has an excellent track record of releasing high quality compilation albums. This time the focus of their attention is the legendary Heavenly label and their 25th anniversary. Disc one of this collection compiles the best stuff from their current artists such as Temples, Jimi Goodwin, Toy and Mark Lanegan. Disc two gathers together the 7” singles that were released for Record Store Day 2015. It features a special collaborative effort by Toy & Jane Weaver, and tracks by Pete Wiggs of St. Etienne and Caitlin Rose.

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.
  • Genre(s):

Metric
Pagans In Vegas

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

Widowspeak
All Yours

Widowspeak produce a beautifully languishing music, Molly Hamilton and Robert Earl Thomas winding their melodic lines together. Hamilton sings gently but passionately, and the band’s instrumental backing billows slowly. All Yours is a very accomplished third album, and is released on Captured Tracks.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Blindness
Wrapped In Plastic

The credits for this album list each member of Blindness as playing their ‘proper’ instruments (vocals, bass, guitar), but each is also credited with ‘noise’. This bodes well. Wrapped In Plastic is a record of bright electro pop swathed in shoegaze atmospherics and driven by stern drum machines. On Saint Marie.

Jesse Hackett
Junk Circle Star

Having been through the Albarn-apprenticeship of Gorillaz’ live band and Africa Express, and even wandering into Thom Yorke’s touring group, Jesse Hackett is now finally ready to release his first own-name solo record into the world. Junk Circle Star’s sound grew out of a basic little keyboard, and from there has ended up in a variety of groovy genres. On Circle Star.

Steven A Clark
The Lonely Roller

Steven A. Clark has a neo-soul, electro-R&B kind of sound, his emotive crooning sitting atop a bed of expansive synth-lines and neat, funky bassline. The Lonely Roller has Clark’s charismatic, emotive vocals and the swinging productions to back him up: I’m sure he’ll do well. On Secretly Canadian.

Seconds / JOYA
Split

Alternative indie-rockers Seconds showcase their dissonant-and-catchy sound together with partners in crime JOYA. Made possible by the folks at Soft Power, this split EP gives us a positive outlook on the future of indie pop, with JOYA keeping an eye on the melodic and gentle side of things. A match made in 250 limited edition vinyl pressing only!

Gurgles
Gurglefirst?

Classic sounding pop-rock (with an indie tinge) led by a Fender Rhodes organ. That instrument gives a certain hue to Gurgles' sound, refreshingly different to much of the Bradford scene from which they come. In fact, Gurgles feature a member of both Mucky Sailor and Nope, so probably makes for a very satisfying sideline! On Saltaire Recordings.

Gwenno
Y Dydd Olaf

Welsh groove-pop from Gwenno on Peski. Y Dydd Olaf is an ode to story telling, the preservation of language and the modern sounds of the Welsh underground. The undeniable influence of krautrock giants Neu! and the psychedelic rock sounds of the 60's, are mixed with contemporary poppy grooves and production akin to bands like Yo La Tengo and Wooden Shjips. It's infectious as hell. Out on vinyl LP.

Creeping Pink
Mirror Woods

John ‘Thee Oh Sees’ Dwyer’s Castle Face label puts out this new album from Creeping Pink, a great slice of oddity that hazes all over the place. Sonic elements include piano, organ, guitar, and a whole lot of unidentifiable stuff that gives Mirror Woods an excellently strong sense of character.
