H Hawkline
In The Pink Of Condition

Inspired by the early solo work of Paul Mccartney and taking his name from American author Richard Brautigan’s The Hawkline Monster, this stunning album from H Hawkline is his first full LP on Heavenly Recordings, and the third album from Huw Gwynfryn Evans. Clever wordplay and sharp smart guitars. Surreal, clever, melodic, weird pop music. On vinyl and CD.

Cornershop
Hold On It's Easy

Interesting release here. Cornershop have elected to take their debut album Hold On It Hurts, from way back in 1993, and remake it for 2015. But! You will notice that this album is titled Hold On It's Easy, which signifies that the style of these versions is a lot smoother, a lot more orchestral: a lot ‘easier’ (according to dominant assumptions about music anyway).

Julee Cruise
Floating Into The Night

Reissue of Julee Cruise’s debut album, from 1989. Cruise is of course a muse of David Lynch, who, along with his long-term co-conspirator Angelo Badalamenti, produced and wrote the album. Most notably contains ‘Falling’, the theme song to a certain TV show those two were involved in, can’t quite place it...

All We Are
All We Are

All We Are are made up of an Irishman, a Norwegian and a Brazilian who all met at university in Liverpool. The band’s democratic approach to song-writing allows all three to get involved, turning their love of hip-hop and soul into what bassist Guro Gikling has dubbed “Psychedelic Boogie”. All We Are have recently toured with London Grammar, Warpaint and Jungle and their sound is likely to appeal to fans of those bands. All We Are is available on indies only limited edition deluxe vinyl LP, with bonus 7” and artwork insert, standard vinyl LP and digipak CD.

Black Rivers
Black Rivers

Two thirds of Doves, twin brothers Jez and Andy Williams launch a new project called Black Rivers. There’s certainly a lot to enjoy for fans of their previous work with both brothers sharing vocal duties to bring a sort of yearning escapism to the songs. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Ignition.

Carl Barat And The Jackals
Let It Reign

Apparently Carl Barat elected to form his new band The Jackals by posting an ad online and seeing who responded. I don’t know how much input the resulting crew had to the sound of this record, but they certainly seem to know how an ordinary Carl Barat record should sound, because that is what they have made… Featuring dramatic cover art!

Belle and Sebastian
Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance

Great music; terrible album titles. That's the golden rule of Belle & Sebastian's output, a band notorious for popularising a smart and lyrically persuasive version of pantomimic twee pop. Stuart Murdoch's song-writing gets more intimate here, occasionally losing its show-boating and cheeky feel for songs about personal struggles, such as the frontman's battle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. But this is also a dance record -- or so this band of merry trailblazers choose to believe. Dancing to indie pop isn't all that easy, so here's hoping Girls In Peacetime Want To Have Fun will be different.

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Kitty, Daisy & Lewis The Third

Winsome middle class siblings Kitty, Daisy and Lewis reappear for a third album of laid back old timey organic grooves. If lead single "Baby Bye Bye" sounded just a little too close to Mike Read's "UKIP Calypso" then the lyrics chart a more lovelorn territory that should help get it onto an advert before the summers out. Produced by Mick Jones of The Clash.

Diagrams
Chromatics

Diagrams is a project by songwriter and producer Mr Sam Genders. His previous album was pretty good fun. Here on Chromatics Gender’s voice sounds a bit like that of an annoying priest who waters everything he says down a bit with a sickly smile and finishes his sentences with “God be with you and your family my dear”. The music is an equally cheery affair; twingle-twangle pop which is fun, gentle and makes you think the world is a bit nicer than you’d previously thought.

Niagara
Don’t Take It Personally

'Don't Take It Personally' is experimentalists Niagara trying on a variety of left-field tricks, marrying psych-rock to Eastern dance music and playing with a hell of a lot of synth. Tracks such as "Currybox" are indicative of Niagara's attempt to make irresistible hooks that are also thought-provoking, taking gloomy synths and pairing them with fast-paced beats and sleek spoken vocals. With its variety of different, equally-valued sound types, 'Don't Take It Personally' resembles glitch-pop that's been remoulded into something more structured and purely pop.   Tracks:  John Barrett Fat Kaos Vanillacola Speak & Spell Laes Currybox Popeye China Eclipse Else Bloom

Bishop Allen
Lights Out

The wispy and never complaining indie pop of Bishop Allen has been absent from our lives for the last five years, and 'Lights Out' finally sees its return. Think sweet melodies and witty takes on love songs -- be it from Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Jens Lekman or Best Coast -- and you'll get close to the sound this twee Brooklyn outfit create. Their fourth record sees them reunited once more with Dead Oceans.   Tracks: Start Again Why I Had To Go Crows No Show Give It Back Black Hole Skeleton Key Good Talk Hammer and Nail Bread Crumbs No Conditions Shadow

Via Tania
Via Tania & The Tomorrow Music Orchestra

The cover to Via Tania’s record Via Tania & the Tomorrow Music Orchestra looks deceptively like something from the Blue Note catalogue, with Tania looking like a vintage jazz singer or big band leader. In fact we have something a bit more vulnerable; a wonderful selection of airy, bluesy, folk tunes with some wonderful orchestral accompaniment, it will inevitably be compared with the work of Laura Mvula as Via Tania creates such an incredibly visual album which could be a beautiful bedtime story or fragments of a half forgotten dream.

Mac DeMarco
Demos Volume 1

Chill daddy and stoner seminar leader Mac DeMarco actually did a few takes of the songs on 2 and Salad Days, if you can believe it. His sunshine pop is given an origin story with Demos Volume 1, a nice little CD that puts the inner workings of his recent songs on display. If you want to hear some unreleased nuggets and the sound of DeMarco fucking shit up from his very own bedroom, you'll want to hear this.

Full length indie pop album from Alex Calder, another talented singer/songwriter from Edmonton, Canada. Focused, psyche and spooky songs meet jangly bright guitar in this album on Captured Tracks. Once one half of Makeout Videotape with Mac DeMarco, now doing his own lo-fi thing. Fans of Deerhunter will love it. Vinyl and CD.

Man Without Country
Maximum Entropy

A stir-fry of miscellaneous emotions from Man Without Country. Maximum Entropy is a revitalization of the mid-80's synth pop golden era. Remember Simple Minds? The Jesus and Mary Chain? Well, they certainly do! Whilst that's going on, put some Annie Lennox-esque guest vocals on there too, ya know - for the total rinse out. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Lost Balloon.

Restriction

New double LP vinyl and CD from Archive. Restriction is a series of angsty and moody electronic-meets-acoustic-croon tracks. Not quite trip-hop, but not quite straight pop either, this album is being released on their own label Dangervisit. Expensive but rather meandering, you're never quite sure where they're going to go next.

Modest Mouse
White Lies, Yellow Teeth / Buttons to Push the Buttons

Modest Mouse are celebrating the days when they were at their rawest, playing stunningly rough guitar and howling lyrics for lost souls over disorientating dissonance. 'This Is a Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About' and 'The Lonesome Crowded West' are two early entries in the indie rock canon, and they're being reissued so we can all have the proof. This 7" features two tracks that failed to make their way onto a record proper: "White Lies, Yellow Teeth", which has been swiming freely through the internet for a while, and "Buttons to Push Buttons".

Lewis
Romantic Times

There's something about the Lewis myth that just doesn't stack up. I'm not entirely convinced that the whole thing is not an elaborate hoax. If the story they are telling is true - then its completely insane. Unbelievably since the recent re-issue of Lewis's 'L'Amour' album someone has found another album by a man who allegedly disappeared after cutting 'L'Amour'. This is apparently the 1985 issue of an album credited this time to Lewis Baloue. The sound is similar, a tortured voice wracked over languid synths, the sleeve sees him posing next to a private jet. Its the same man. This was remastered from a sealed, vinyl copy of the ultra-rare album discovered in the vaults of DJ and collector Kevin “Sipreano” Howes in Vancouver. For the moment the man remains a complete enigma. The record label claims they can't find him- it could well be true. In any case what we are left with is another shimmering album of eerie late night evocations that a certainly more David Lynch than the debut but have exactly the same naked threadbare appeal

The Knife
Shaken-Up Versions

‘Shaken-Up Versions’ is a mini album featuring classic tracks by Swedish electronic music duo The Knife. The tracks here are reworked especially for their recent North American tour of 2013’s ‘Shaking the Habitual’ LP. Just as 'rejuvinating' as their live shows, it's sure to be mandatory listening for fans of the band.

Björk
Biophilia Live

Directed by Nick Fenton (Submarine, The Selfish Giant) and Peter Strickland (Berberian Sound Studio) 'Biophilia live' is a concert documentary of Bjork's multimedia project performance at The Alexandra Palace in London towards the end of her 2013/14 tour. The show is a multi-platform, multi-instrumental, multi-media, mulit-everything extravaganza of music, art and design. Watching it is like climbing inside the mind of a mad Icelandic genius and realising that everything is going to be amazing.

Johnny Marr
Playland

Johnny Marr's first solo album 'The messenger' had some really lovely moments as well as some thrilling ones. Should we worry that Marr is following it up so quickly? Well The Smiths were known for writing briskly so maybe nothing has changed. No soundclips are available (yet) but the press release talks of energetic, post-punk songwriting complemented by characteristic guitar style and poised vocal phrasing. We'll see how his voice stands up this time but I'm hoping for some melancholy too amid the adrenalin rush. This is the aqua blue vinyl version by the way.

Dems
Muscle Memory

Atmospheric offering from South London-based electro three-piece Dems. Melancholic and understated, this will appeal to fans of The XX and James Blake. Sad music with an undercurrent of pulsing electronica. Confident and contemplative music to sit in the dark to and ponder the meaninglessness of existence.

Mega Bog
Gone Banana

Mega Bog's intoxicating pop music has a learning curve, sounding slightly off-centre at first but becoming more and more irresistible as time goes on. The whispered vocals, barely strummed chords and skittering drums often sound like they've been produced from the other end of a church, but they usually envelop into something full-bodied and striking. There are conventional indie pop moments, sudden offerings of jazz bluster and signs of the avant-garde in 'Gone Banana'.

Springtime Carnivore
Springtime Carnivore

Washed out & soulful pop songs from Springtime Carnivore aka Greta Morgan. Her self-titled record has elements of motown, twee-pop and mellow dramatic west coast stylings. It's chocka with catchy hooks, fluffy synths and slick production. If Camera Obscura met Feist in LA they'd probably make something like this. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Autumn Tone.

The Auteurs
How I Learned To Love The Bootboys

As songwriter Luke Haines began to focus his energies on new musical projects, such as Black Box Recorder, his output with the Auteurs began to dwindle, and 'How I Learned To Love The Bootboys' became their final document, a moody, typically downbeat record with a dramatic, end-days feel (those strings!). Now it gets the reissue treatment from 3 Loop Music, with a ridiculous amount of b-side additives.

Golden Fable
Ancient Blue

The Welsh dream too, you know. Golden Fable are a trio of dream pop wizards, and they'e following up their debut record, 'Star Maps'. That record efficiently demonstrated their shimmering sound through synths, programmed drums and effects upon effects, but this record presents it even more neatly and emotively. 'Ancient Blue' goes in for the kill, hoping their songs will land with the force a Low or Explosions In The Sky song does at its climax. The vocals are totally ethereal, too.

Pour It On

‘Pour It On’ is the long awaited second album from Hot Chip’s Felix Martin, LCD Soundsystem’s Al Doyle and Tom Hopkins. Following on from their 2012 debut ‘Yesterday Was Lived And Lost’, this 10-track LP is unabashedly anthemic; it’s electronic music as its most cohesive and assured, with sonic shades of The Human League and textures akin to that of Dan Avery or Caribou.

Comet Gain
Paperback Ghosts

COMET GAIN return with their seventh album “Paperback Ghosts” on July 7th, their first since 2011’s critically acclaimed “Howl of The Lonely Crowd”. Recorded at Soup Studios with producer Simon Trought at the helm, and inspired by the psycho-geography of walks in North London woods and in the forgotten grey hinterland of the city’s back streets, “Paperback Ghosts” comes soaked in autumn melancholy. Tender-hearted but not miserable, defiant but not angry, it maintains the delicate balance that has always been Comet Gain’s strength.

A quartet of desert-dwelling Australian dreamers who also like pop, Lowlakes make dream pop that falls somewhere between the night-time dramatics of Trespassers' William, the synthy low-key side of Justin Vernon and the confrontational baritone vocals of crooners Majical Cloudz and Future Islands. 'Iceberg Nerves' is a mix of downbeat programmed beats, spectral guitars and melodramatic songwriting.

Tyrannosaurus Dead
Flying Ant Day

For fans of fuzzed out indie rock from yesteryear with modern principles and a youthful exuberance, there's Tyrannosaurus Dead, who get by with sickly-sweet vocal exchanges (that recall a gentler Dan Bejar) and scuzzy chords that make you feel a lot of love. The succinct and always catchy enough 'Flying Ant Day' takes you back to the days of 'Slanted & Enchanted' carelessness, and also harkens to the newer work of Joanna Gruesome. A nice postcard from indie rock.

Described as pop for short attention spans, Seamajestea by Seamajesty is a fun ride of fast rhythms and layers of pop goodness.

Lost Girls
Lost Girls - Expanded Edition

Lost Girls' self-titled debut LP has been a long time coming: the original duo (Kitchen of Distinction's Patrick Fitzgerald and 4AD's Heidi Berry) formed in 1998 as somewhat of a work in progress, wrote some songs and played a handful of live shows. The band soon expanded with the addition of three more members (Ashley Wood, Dave Morgan and Kim Smith) and the material got a collective reworking. Apart from single 'Needle's Eye' being independently released in 1999, the remainder of their recordings were left pretty much untouched, unreleased and subsequently unheard. This 2 CD set contains all of the originally intended album (CD1) a long with bonus material (CD2) so they can finally get the attention they deserve.

Last Summer on Earth / Grapey Day

A pop artist who's as renegade as a TV cop who doesn't play by the rules, Pete Nichols' debut record Last Summer On Earth / Grapey Day combines his love of easy, persuasive melodies and subversive, mislabelled sound effects. It's the kind of pop that sounds pretty and ugly at the same time, which is a fair reflection of life, really.

Orange Yellow Red
A Rose Made Of Galaxies

The debut album of Orange Yellow Red, A Rose Made of Galaxies is a nice slice of pop, drizzled with a bit of shoegaze in places from the lead singer’s vocals and all that fuzzy guitar which swirls around -- a bit like bands such as Lush or Curve. However for the main part it is a big slice of interesting pop taking cues from bands such as The Naked and Famous.

Shouty indie pop duo Ting Tings continue to be a thing with 'Super Critical', their third record to date.

The guitars bounce in that direction, the percussion gets a little bit more primitive, and you are definitely expected to dance.

The House Of Love
Live At The Lexington 13.11.13

Remember when indie rock was made by people in the '80s? Probably not, right, because who was even alive then? Aside from everyone I work with? The House Of Love helped bridge that awkward period between the '80s and the '90s, when the genre saw a lot of stylistic changeover, but 'Live At The Lexington' sees them playing as recent as last year, celebrating the golden era of their career in style.

The Horn The Hunt
Terrafidella

Hazy analogue pop from Leeds-based The Horn The Hunt. Taking it’s title from a fusion of the latin words for land and faithful, Terrafidella offers expansive guitar-led songs with overtones of '90s stadium grunge. Synth flutters and the soaring vocals of Clare Carter fill the gaps in between the insistent drums and chiming guitars. Imagine Florence & The Machine supporting Pearl Jam in the desert in 1993 . Out on vinyl LP from Gpig.

Medicine
Home Everywhere

Medicine make songs and then sabotage them until they're buried under a dusty pile of rocks, taking after the Perfect Pussy punx with the whole mission statement of "write pop, fuck it up later". Unlike the fuzz of their peers, 'Home Everywhere' has little interest in nostalgia, making the noise the main attraction and the tune under it a secondary affair -- it's kind of like listening to Magik Markers with shiny structures underneath.

Dilly Dally
Candy Mountain

Toronto’s Dilly Dally formed in 2010 after discovering a shared propensity for dreamy guitars, weed and karaoke. With the addition of their two good friends, Corey Marshall (drums) and Michael Guiliani (bass) the quartet spent the years that followed playing anywhere they could with a PA, be it bar or basement. Now, with a solid fan base, the band are gearing up for the release of their debut LP with the release of a brand new 7” single, ‘Candy Mountain’. Grungy and abrasive, Dilly Dally make music that is steeped in accessible but not overly polished melodies.

Brewis's complex chamber music compositions are a gorgeous backdrop to Smith's tales travel writing texts. It ocassionally hits dizzy heights and is nothing but interesting throughout.

Viktor Sjoberg
House Master

Pastoral experimantal poppy house music from this Swedish maestro who has now reached his 5th outing for the esteemed Kalligrammofon. His story about finding a bargain Chicago house LP at the age of 9 is quite sweet. I was still listening to Duran Duran back then so he's obviously tons cooler than me. This is his attempt to aurally represent his profound youthful feelings as this classic club music opened up new swelling vistas of inspitaion for him. He's been digging the scene for over 20 years now and he's still only a wee pup. Check his sonic world out now.

It's been a year since 2013's triumphant 'Ores & Minerals' and London based trio Mazes hone in on the best of their craft with 'Wooden Aquarium'; here, the hypnotic motorik rhythms and infectious pop melodies remain firmly intact. Though defying tradition and recording the album completely live in a studio, Mazes have not compromised their lo-fi sensibility as evidenced on their previous two efforts. With the help of Parquet Courts' producer Jonathan Schenke, 'Wooden Aquarium' is probably their most accomplished record to date.

Allo Darlin'
We Come From The Same Place

Anglo-Aussie indie-poppers Allo Darlin’ are back with their third full-length and a lot has changed since 2012’s ‘Europe’: coalescing the enthusiastic urgency of their 2010 self-titled debut with the introspective sophistication of its follow-up, ‘We Come From The Same Place’ combines the best of both worlds. Their propensity for melody remains firmly intact, but it is both sonically and lyrically different following a shift in singer Elizabeth Morris’ personal life, with the theme of new beginnings running throughout.

Odd Rumblings
Thieves

Pop music as refracted by glass, Odd Rumblings create a chilling atmosphere on their self-titled debut, only occasionally letting pop hooks pass through. These industrial-tinged songs rest on heavily effected soundscapes that echo outward for eternity, but are softened by emphatic vocal melodies that the duo find impossible to resist. It's DIY: Odd Rumblings brighten up their dystopia.

Of Montreal
Cherry Peel

'Cherry Peel', the first record from the chaotic twee mess that is Of Montreal, was originally released in 1999. With its psych-folk undertones and gleefully experimental take on pop music, it slotted right into Elephant 6's canon, fulfilling their golden rule -- music should explode all over the place. Now it's back on vinyl thanks to Bar-None.

El May
The Other Person is You

El May is a backing musician turned songwriter, who's moved from playing for Nada Surf and Luna to making songs in all the traditions of a solo folkie. Her songs are melancholic tales about break-up and devastation, transmitted through piano compositions and simple, indelible vocal melodies. Call it existential pop music: 'The Other Person is You' is May writing songs about things she hasn't figured out yet.

The Voyeurs
Rhubarb Rhubarb

This lot used to be called Charlie Boyer and the Voyeurs but have now mysteriously changed their name to the Voyeurs. Their music has changed ever so slightly and instead of evoking Television's 1970's New York guitar stylings, they now evoke Lou Reed's 1970's New York guitar stylings. The track I'm listening to sounds like an absolute mess so will wait and see how this goes down.

18+
Trust

18+ return from mixtape hell with a whole lot of fresh ideas and their debut record, 'Trust'. The duo spend most of the record's runtime breathing and hyperventilating over delicate and sensual electro-pop tunes, leaving the textures and eclectic amples sparse and intimate, their vocals rising and falling against solid ground. Not for the faint -- or repressed -- of heart.

Ace City Racers
Different Angle

I want to say Ace City Racers make garage rock, because how perfect would that be? It's not far from the truth: while this band popped out of the bedroom, twee pop style, with intimate and luxuriously silly songs that originally appeared on the gleeful Alcopop Records, they retain a rugged edge and a penchant for all things raw. This new 7" single, Different Angle', is dedicated to the audio-visual triumphs of that place that's just a little cooler than Yorkshire: Scotland.

Dean Blunt
Black Metal

This probably isn't the new Bathory album. Dean Blunt, previously of Hype Williams fame, is becoming one of the most singular voices and visionaries in what we would probably call 'experimental' music. He makes records that traverse genre after genre until they all diminish (seriously, though -- 'The Redeemer' is voicemail-core, with plenty of diversions into funk, vaporwave and folk). His newest work is called 'Black Metal', but continues to mix, match and create new sounds that feel both detached and intimate.

Insect Heroes
Apocalypso

Sweet vocals, off kilter percussion and randomly layered electronic sounds characterise Insect Heroes' 'Apocalypso', which is actually way more cheerful and abundantly more twee than the metal name and artwork suggests. This record is recommended for fans of loopy indie pop bands such as the Unicorns and Islands, who make you feel through the most naive and juvenile of approaches.

Soft as Snow
Glass Body Remixed

Houndstooth makes way for their old friends Soft as Snow, a duo whose name doesn't quite fit with the next-generation, sci-fi sounds they bring to their electro-pop. 'Glass Body Remixed' takes one of their prime cuts and reroutes it twice; first, Lucy of Stroboscopic Artefacts unleashes it onto the floor, and then Factory Floor's Gabe Gurnsey extends it and sustains it into a gruesome acid jam, 'til there's nothing left.

Shellsuit
Wednesday Morning Bootle Strand

Shellsuit homage the best of the folk, punk and indie rock canons in 'Wednesday Morning Bootle Strand', citing Simon and Garfunkel as an influence for their sound alongside the Velvet Underground, as if the bands are two flips of the same coin -- they mention the Smiths, too. Ultimately, this duo make contemplative guitar tunes that are either supremely pastoral -- up in the trees, looking out windows -- or bitterly political.

'Double Youth' is the new record from electronic songwriter Helado Negro, who draws on his base of equipment (including bass drum machines, to get your body moving and your brain brooding) in order to make a sound in the palettes of ambient, IDM and synth pop -- all meshed together to bare his little soul. 'Double Youth' is influenced by funk and electronica, but most important are its personal themes and expressions.

Conquering Animal Sound
Talking Shapes

Indietronica duo Conquering Animal Sound are releasing their first new work in over a year, following on from the lush and propulsive tactics employed for 2013's 'On Floating Bodies'. This 12" EP surveys the concepts and constructs of "gender and language", while taking a poppier approach to songwriting, with more traditional verse/chorus changeovers.

Zola Jesus
Taiga

A year on from 'Versions', an orchestral reworking of old songs, indie and goth pop songwriter Zola Jesus is back with 'Taiga', her first record of original material since 2011. Nika Roza Danilova has said she wrote and recorded 'Taiga' to sound huger and more sonically clear than previous Zola Jesus records, with clean-as-a-whistle vocals and the same full-bodied arrangements found on 'Versions' (or your average Lykke Li record). 'Taiga' sees Danilova shift from Sacred Bones, the gloomy post-punk label on which most of records have been released, to Mute.    Tracks: Taiga Dangerous Days Dust Hunger Go (Blank Sea) Ego Lawless Nail Long Way Down Hollow It's Not Over

Von Spar are back after releasing a live adaptation of Can's 'Ege Bamyasi', here to unleash their own brand of new-era krautrock to the world with 'Streetlife' -- the weirdest of '70s rock, but with some disco too. This record is, as ever, a highly collaborative affair, bringing on board Marker Starling, Ada and Scout Niblett for a variety of vocal spots.

Oviformia Sci
Hablamos De Nosotros

Imagine leaving Berlin in the early 80's and arriving in Barcelona for your annual holiday. You switch on the radio to be greeted by some synth ridden techno-pop - you assume it is your native musical geniuses Kraftwerk, only to have Spanish words fly out at your face. What's going on, you ask yourself. After the song ends, the DJ informs you that you have been listening to Hablmos De Nosotros from Oviformia Sci. If one were to blend the 'werk, Devo and some 80's Spanish pop, Oviformia would be said blend. Out on CD and vinyl from Elefant.

The New Pornographers are a twee pop supergroup from Canada that brings together the indie rock stars Neko Case, Dan Bejar (Destroyer) and A.C. Newman under one banner. Their new record, 'Brill Bruisers', is their first since 2010's 'Together', which was stuffed with orchestration and additional players, such as Okkervil River's Will Sheff. 'Brill Bruisers' features in-house production by Newman and bassist John Collin. The record is available through Matador and pre-orders feature a 3D poster with the glasses to boot.    Tracks: Brill Bruisers Champions of Red Wine Fantasy Fools War on the East Coast Backstairs Marching Orders Another Drug Deal of the Heart Born with a Sound Wide Eyes Dancehall Domine Spidyr Hi-Rise You Tell Me Where

High Hazels
High Hazels

Self-described as "inherently Northern", High Hazels are one of those indie rock bands from Sheffield riding high on a lot of persistence and dream pop influence. This self-titled record shows their knack for producing tunes out of little more than damn good melodies, be they from the strings on their guitars or the words out of their mouths. Weird sentences aside, though, it's one of those Sheffield indie rock bands -- you know where to put your trust.

This time, though, they also have string arrangements conducted by Tom Trapp to work with, giving their sound a lush, organic accompaniment.

Jamie T
Carry On The Grudge

Which one is Jamie T again? I simply can't remember. Anyway here he is, he hasn't released anything for four years, yet this is  his third album? What is it? I mean what the hell is it? The track I'm listening to is a kind of a chanting pub rock type affair with a melody which is exactly like somethong from the '80's that I just can't recall. Something by Squeeze maybe. It then has a Beatlesy middle eight. He has no ideas of his own but who does these days? By the 17 millionthtime round the chorus is quite catchy. Anyway he's already wone Zane Lowes Hottest Record in the World accolade so this will probably be popular. On CD and vinyl.

The Aislers Set
How I Learned To Write Backwards

San Fran's finest twee pop act, The Aislers Set originally unleashed their delicately strummed, totally loopy brand of romantic songs in the late '90s. Influenced by the '60s in the way they wrote love songs -- stoically, as well as sadly -- they also brought in elements of garage rock and post-punk, while doing silly things like jamming keyboards and throwing in trumpets. Now Suicide Squeeze reissues 'How I Learned To Write Backwards', originally released in 2002, before their breakup.

Frederick says it's "a distillation of 20 years of thinking about music and the kind of record I wanted to make", and optimistically-titled second single 'Number One Record' has been in rotation on Lamacq.

Trick

Is it Kele as in Pele? Or Kelly as in.....um...Kelly Dalglish? Not sure. Anyway for the unititiated its the bloke from Bloc Party. Solo, he delves deep into the type of pulsating dance music he's tried unsuccessfully to shoehorn into his main bands sound. Full of dancefloor friendly beats and squiggly synths and techno and house influences. 'Doubt' is nothing if not catchy, starting a little embarrassing dad goes techno, it soon reveals itself via a very catchy chorus. What we're thinking we're going to get here is highly scrubbed danceable pop with dark overtones. And why not?

It was produced by Jake Portrait, who has worked with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and helps keep the riffage clear and articulated throughout.
