Bob Lazy
La Vitti Bar

Bob Lazy aka Borja González-Ayllón has been going pretty good since giving up the day job of being a drummer for hire and bedding down to write music of his own. 'La Vitti Bar' is his second album following on from his 2017 debut 'Rock | Love | Truth'. The record continues to showcase Bobby's ability to blend influences from vintage '60s and '70s pop with a contemporary feel. Might do well for himself this lad. 

John MOuse
The Goat

The concept behind John MOuse's (and that big O is inexplicably intentional) latest album was to record, mix and upload online one track a week. Comparable to the arch, knowing pop made by the likes of Pulp and Momus, these tracks have a heavily electronic quotient as well as spoken word interludes. According to the press release, analytics show that 'The Goat' is aimed at 35-45 year old males.

London Grammar
If You Wait

Monstrously successful debut LP from alt-popsters London Grammar here. With its blend of tender balladry, gentle synth-pop tones and a few huge choruses, ‘If You Wait’ hits that sweet spot between The xx, Florence & The Machine and Clean Bandit. With a placing at number 2 on the UK album chart, he album was also popular enough to propel London Grammar into the same indie big leagues as the aforementioned acts.

Susannah Stark
Time Together (Hues and Intensities)

Fine artist Susannah Stark has been using music increasingly in her artwork, so it was perhaps inevitable that she’d end recording an album. Early rock, pop and folk influences fuse together with reggae, dub and late-80s dance music here, and an interest in vocal improvisation also plays its part in 'Time Together (Hues and Intensities)'. A host of instruments and field recordings create a bass-heavy, percussive and hypnotic LP suited to a number of different spaces. Think Pontiac Streator, Fatima Al Qadiri and The Black Dog as points of comparison.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood
Liverpool

In stark contrast to their production-heavy debut ‘Welcome To The Pleasuredome’, Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s second studio album ‘Liverpool’, saw the band actively encouraged to play their own instruments. Released in 1986, the heavier rock sound here led to a lower commercial performance for the band around the world - though 'Liverpool' was still critically acclaimed and yielded the excellent UK Top Five single ‘Rage Hard’.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood
Welcome To The Pleasuredome

When Frankie Goes To Hollywood released their debut album ‘Welcome To The Pleasuredome’ in late 1984, off the back of two inconceivably enormous singles in ‘Relax’ and ‘Two Tribes’, pre-orders alone meant it was guaranteed a UK no.1 spot. Sprawling and lavish, in many ways this record represents the zenith (or nadir, depending on your outlook) of pop production in the Eighties.

Annie Taylor
Sweet Mortality

Releasing two highly acclaimed singles and their first EP, Not Yours!, since their formation four years ago, Swiss quartet Annie Taylor deliver their debut studio album. Completing their gradual evolution from anthemic indie-rock to hazy psychedelia, Sweet Mortality is an accomplished collection for a band so young.

The Migrant
Flood

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

Latimer House
All The Rage

Described by Gary Crowley as “something rather ace sounding” when he first played This Is Pop on Amazing Radio, the opening track on All The Rage, the debut album from Latimer House, sets the tone for this collection of guitar-driven pop. From the earthy string arrangements on Burn, the dreamy reverberation of Your Love, the keyboard groove of Love’s Undermined, or the summer harmonies of Splash!, Latimer House blend keyboards and guitars with a depth of instrumentation that reveal subtleties and a rare attention to detail. Reviewers have conjured a diverse and, for the band, rather bemusing-cum-flattering range of references: Syd Barrett, The Wake, David Bowie, The Cribbs, Ian Dury, Phoenix, Iggy Pop, Art Brut, The Smiths, The Psychedelic Furs, Chas & Dave, The June Brides, The Beatles, REM, Half Man Half Biscuit, The Kinks, Pulp, Talking Heads, I Ludicrous and “any John Peel favourite from the late 1970s onwards” have all been pressed into descriptive service. Indeed, such is the cornucopia of ideas, word-play and melodies contained on All The Rage that pigeon-holing this first collection from Latimer House as ‘Alternative’ or ‘Brit Pop’ or ‘Alt-Rock’ or ‘Indie’ wouldn’t be quite right, but then again any of these terms wouldn’t be a million miles away either. Latimer House describe their music simply as guitar-driven. And their disdain for The X Factor and fascination with the idea of the hit parade come together in the album’s final cut, the baroque and sneering psych of Bubblegum.

Ghost Twins
Never Fear Total Failure

This album from Derby-based pairing Ghost Twins has a mish-mash of competing influences which always prove interesting to the listener, from rock, punk, and hardcore, to electronica and pop. It might sound disparate to read, but really works in sound. Fantastic experimentation makes for a good listen. On vinyl.

Palace Winter
Keep Dreaming, Buddy

Recorded via a long-distance exchange of demos between Carl Coleman and Caspar Hesselager while the former was living in Tenerife last winter, ...Keep Dreaming, Buddy is the third studio album from Palace Winter.

Phoenix: Flames Are Dew Upon My Skin

Recorded during a ten-week artistic residency in northern Spain, Phoenix: Flames Are Dew Upon My Skin is the latest ambitious project from performance artist Eartheater. Full of baroque guitar passages, swelling orchestral arrangements and centred around her operatic vocals, it’s an album of opposites being resolved, symbolised by the record’s sub-title.

Sarah Mary Chadwick
Please Daddy

New Zealand singer / songwriter Sarah Mary Chadwick returns with Please Daddy. It is the follow up to her critically lauded 2018 live album The Queen Who Stole The Sky.

After previously calling time on their ten-year career in 1992, Liverpool’s Candy Opera return to the fold with ‘The Patron Saint of Heartache’. The album’s lead single ‘These Days Are Ours’ suggests that this is an album of perfect guitar pop which balances the earthiness of Michael Head’s various projects and the charming chime of The Go-Betweens.

Novo Amor
Cannot Be, Whatsoever

Welsh artist Ali Lacey unveils his second studio album as Novo Amor. Picking up its thematic thread where Amor's 2018 debut ‘Birthplace’ left it, ‘Cannot Be, Whatsoever’ is a notably more upbeat collection in its general tone and demeanour but still contains the moments of reflection and poise that made Lacey’s early work so striking. Stirring yet simultaneously fragile, this is contemporary alt-soul pitched somewhere between Bon Iver and Moses Sumney.

Smokescreens
A Strange Dream

Smokescreens are an LA band with some serious Antipodean influences. First up, this second LP is produced by David Kilgour (The Clean etc.), but 'A Strange Dream' is also pretty heavy on the "down under sound" - these tracks take in The Go-Betweens and Flying Nun as well as UK DIY punk. An album of perfectly formed jangle 'n' ache to follow up the much-liked 2018 debut 'Used to Yesterday'.

JW Francis
We Share A Similar Joy

Whilst trying to be a singer / songwriter, JW Francis was employed as a New York City tour guide. He also owns his own Murder Mystery Business. You wouldn’t guess any of this from his music though - he makes music that fuses Jonathan Richman and The Velvet Underground’s sound into dreamy lo-fi pop nuggets,. We Share A Similar Joy is his first album for Sunday Best.

Alongside his group the Winter Orphans, here Woodward has recorded this "live in the studio" album which follows up 2018's self-titled debut. 'Love and Optimism' is a love letter to Bristol, the city Woodward calls home and finds a constant source of inspiration.

Beans On Toast
Knee Deep In Nostalgia

‘Knee Deep In Nostalgia’ is one of two new albums released on the same day by Essex-based singer-songwriter Jay McAllister, better known as Beans On Toast. A reflective album due to both the effects of the coronavirus lockdown and McAllister’s 40th birthday in 2020, 'Knee Deep In Nostalgia' is produced by long-time friend Frank Turner.

Ed Dowie
The Obvious I

‘The Obvious I’ is the second album by English singer/songwriter Ed Dowie. Dowie's voice has been likened to Robert Wyatt, Mark Hollis and Dean Wareham for having a similarly clean, pure quality. His music takes influences from artists such as Gavin Byrars and minimalist composers Terry Riley, Phillip Glass and Steve Reich. In places, 'The Obvious I' sounds similar to C. Duncan. 

Kuupuu
Plz Tell Me

Gorgeous, whimsical psych-folk stylings from Kuupuu here. Rich with murmured vocals, backwards noises and muffled percussion, 'Plz Tell Me' resembles an intricate music box. Despite the weirdness, it still sounds enjoyably homespun and intimate. There are also hints of dub, electronica, ambient music, and as they say, all that good stuff. FFO Broadcast, Flaming Lips, and Mort Garson. Out on KRAAK.

After Dark 3

‘After Dark 3’ is another sampler from the Italians Do It Better imprint. As is always the case with Johnny Jewel's label comps, this record includes unheard tracks by artists on IDIB's impressive roster. As well as including unreleased material from Chromatics that yet again teases the ridiculously anticipated ‘Dear Tommy’, further contributions here come from Desire, Johnny Jewel and Farah.

Seamus Fogarty’s third studio album, A Bag Of Eyes, will come as something of a shock to fans accustomed to his previous work. Veering sharply away from the guitar, this collection relies heavily on electronics, with synths and drum machines being the order of the day, conjuring up a much darker variant of Fogarty’s celebrated storytelling.

Another fantastic discovery from Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground, Tiña’s debut album Positive Mental Health Music has the auspicious honour of being the first ever long-player to be released on the label. Spearheaded by the fine singles ‘I Feel Fine’ and ‘Dip’ and boasting lead singer Josh Loftin’s cathartic songwriting, the South London outfit’s debut is meticulous and inventive.

We see where he’s headed with this.

It's a winning record which should thrill fans of Tacocat and Mush. Telephone Explosion (Bruce Haack, Laraaji) are the label behind 'Good Time'.

Taking inspiration from trip-hop to jazz to the melancholy mourning of the synthesiser, the album expertly manoeuvres across genres.

The album has something of a more melancholic feel than its predecessor, one which mirrors the world being slightly more - how you say? - shit since they were last about. The duo say that the sleeve represents the sounds on the album. I'll be amazed if it does.

The duo comprise master storyteller and rapper Slug and producer Ant, who provides the perfect genre-blending backdrop for Slug’s words. The duo never stray far from what they’ve always done, though this album also sees them gently test the boundaries of their sound.

Embrace
This New Day

'This New Day' was the fifth studio album from Brighouse-based indie plodders Embrace. The critics were never really on their side, but the all-important public were - 'This New Day' reached the top of the album charts on release. The 2020 version of 'This New Day' sees the album re-issued on vinyl for the first time since the original release. 

Aerial East
Try Harder

A completely different thing to Ariel Pink, Aerial East is a musician out of ... well ... everywhere it seems - she travelled around a lot as a kid. Perhaps this constant movement inspired her new album, an unusual record in the sense that it is a set of soft-touch songs which are totally drum-less. East intends for 'Try Harder' to be a soothing album, one which explores subjects and stories not usually heard in pop music.

Hilang Child
Every Mover

Hilang Child is the project of Ed Riman, a Brighton-based singer and composer who, like a lot of us, has got sick of the social media world and the anxiety it induces. To combat all of that, Riman's gone out and done something concrete instead. 'Every Mover', his second album as Hilang Child, explores all kinds of sonics with influences ranging from Fleet Foxes to Chemical Brothers. It's an emotional work that seems to have been somewhat cathartic for the protagonist and will surely be a fascinating ride for the listener.

Marc Almond
The Stars We Are (Expanded Edition)

Marc Almond’s highest-selling solo album, 1988’s ‘The Stars We Are’, makes it to wax. On top of the original album - which includes a duet with Nico that represents her last-ever studio recording - there’s an additional record all of the associated singles’ B-sides plus extended tracks. Also included is a version of Gene Pitney’s ‘Something’s Gotten Hold Of My Heart’, a track which became a chart-topper for Almond in 1989 when he re-recorded it with Pitney.

Lotus Plaza
Spooky Action At A Distance

Slowly we unfurl, like Lotus Plaza. Lockett Pundt from Deerhunter is behind this project, and there’s certainly some overlap between the dreamy guitar-pop of ‘Spooky Action At A Distance’ and Pundt’s other band - not to mention Atlas Sound, the solo gamble of Pundt’s fellow Deerhunter(er) Bradford Cox. However, ‘Spooky Action At A Distance’ also leans more heavily into the classic shoegaze modes of Ride than any of Deerhunter’s records do.

The Cardigans
Super Extra Gravity

As things stand, Super Extra Gravity, is the 6th and last album by The Cardigans. It was released in 2005. The band are back together and touring, so who know what might happen in the future. It features the wonderfully titled single, I Need Some Fine Wine and You, You Need To Be Nicer. 180g vinyl LP in gatefold sleeve on Polydor.

Prefab Sprout
Protest Songs

Protest Songs was the fourth album by County Durham’s pop royalty, Prefab Sprout. It was originally released in 1989 as the follow-up to their hit-filled classic, From Langley Park To Memphis and predecessor to Jordan: The Comeback. It was, however, recorded in 1985 shortly after the band’s second album, Steve McQueen, which is why, artistically, it has more in common with that than the albums either side of it. Nevertheless it is classic piece of the Prefab Sprout discography.

SG Lewis
times

Sam Lewis (SG Lewis, natch) has already collaborated with a veritable "who's who" from the world of modern pop - Robyn and Dua Lipa to name but two - but now it is time for the debut album. Favours are returned on the guest-front on 'times', an album that is inspired by the hedonistic disco scene of late-1970s New York as well as (more worryingly) the work of Jamiroquai.

Matija
byebyeskiesofyesterday

Matija are an alt-pop band from Munich. With their second album 'byebyeskiesofyesterday' they have made a very accomplished album of synth-soaked lush pop. The record follows their 2017 debut 'Are We An Electric Generation Falling Apart?' and is the band’s first album as a three-piece following the departure of bass-playing founding member Johann Blake. Bare poppy, kinda like Marina and Florence & The Machine.

Casper Clausen
Better Way

You may not know Casper Clausen by name, but I think you'll sit up when I tell you that he is the frontman for post-rock collective Efterklang. 'Better Way' is Clausen's first ever solo work and features the instrumental and production talents of one Sir Sonic Boom. It is an expressive album that touches on the cornerstones of Krautrock, progressive pop and experimental/whatever music.

Le Couleur
Concorde

Taken under the wing of none other than dance music icon Giorgio Moroder, Montreal-based trio Le Couleur deliver a sleek second album in the shape of ‘Concorde’. Here the group have attempted to create an audio representation of the aeroplane after which the LP is named. A set of chic, danceable pop tunes, this pivots somewhat away from the vintage influences that informed Le Couler's early work.

Nadine Shah
Kitchen Sink

Kitchen Sink is the fourth album from critically acclaimed singer / songwriter Nadine Shah. It is the follow-up to her Mercury Music Prize nominated album Holiday Destination. The album contains her usual brave approach to songwriting and unflinching social commentary, but is tempered, this time, with a certain playfulness. Ben Hillier is in the producer’s chair once again.

James Blake
Before EP

Definitely-not-at-all-sad-or-teary electronic songwriter James Blake is back with a new EP which celebrates his roots and his London clubbing days. If anyone can remember how good Blake's early non-vocal EPs were then you might be ready for a belated return to that sound. 'Before' gets halfway there, but also maintains the blue-eyed R & B sound that he's been dealing since.

Talk Talk
The Party’s Over

It still beggars belief that this record was made by the same people who made 'Laughing Stock'.  This is Talk Talk in full throes of their early 'new romantic' sound. Having supported Duran Duran there is a certain similarity in sound but even when in synth pop excess mode Talk Talk were clever and literate. Witness the hit singles 'Today' and 'Talk Talk'.

Virginia Wing
private LIFE

Anxiety, stress, death, emotion - mental trauma is something a lot of us have had to deal with in this most horrible of years (for posterity's sake, we're writing this in 2020). The members of Virginia Wing have used suffering as a platform from which to make a brash and daring pop record. We all need an album that is somewhat life-affirming in these dark times, and as such 'private LIFE' may provide therapy for both the protagonists and the listener. The band have really moved their sound on in recent years - they make a sort of artsy, icy take on synth-pop now - so if anyone is going to achieve this it might well be them.

Tester Housing
Over You

More music from the decade we called the 1980s. While we were all out dancing to Modern Romance and Tight Fit, Tester Housing made gritty and emotional synth-pop from their den on the south side of Melbourne. Tester Housing were filed alongside other creatives of the area such as Primitive Calculators, but ultimately the band didn't last long. 'Over You' collects Tester Housing's two 1983 singles onto one 12".

Deerhoof
Breakup Song

Arriving at a time when Deerhoof were experimenting with form and content to a greater extent than at any other point in their career - and that's saying something - the band's eleventh studio album ‘Breakup Song’ was released in late 2012. Consisting of eleven pithy songs of heartbreak delivered in almost exactly half an hour, it was another glittering demonstration of the band’s commitment to reinvention. tUnE-yArDs, 'Paul's Boutique', Liars, it's all in there.

Beyoncé
Lemonade

Steering away from the sheeny chart-leading bangers that made Queen Bey a hegemonic pop power, Lemonade is yet another pioneering reinvention from someone exploring new territory. Risk-taking has become alien from many modern powerhouse artists; but so long as the likes of Beyonce keep us on our toes, the world will be a better place.

Kasbo
The Making of a Paracosm

'The Making of a Paracosm' is the latest album from Swedish production sensation Kasbo. This album features a range of collaborators, mostly with musicians from his native land (Noomi, Freja The Dragon and so on), and contains the sort of chart-friendly danceable pop that is all over the Radio 2 airwaves these days. With two-hundred-million streams he's certainly doing something right.
