Erlend Oye
Legao

The press release for 'Legao' refers to Erlend Øye as "a skinny nerd", which is one of the crueller hard sells we've had. In actuality, Øye is a musician who trades in chillout vibes, playing a low-key, funky kind of indie rock (listen to those palm-muted chords on "Garota", and those slick drum fills, and float away). Øye once played in indie pop outfit Kings of Convenience, and 'Legao' brings back all their hallmarks, including a hefty amount of swirling keys. Recommended for fans of Scandinavian indie pop like Jens Lekman.

Waiters
What For Art Thou

Waiters are a Manchester band who make indie rock with big aspirations, full of jangly guitar and what they call minimal composition that channels the downbeat indie rock of the 90s; "Perpetual Notion" recalls early Pavement if they were transposed into North England. 'What For Art Thou' is their new 12" EP, and it's recommended to indie rock revivalists with a penchant for slow and sneaky melodies.

Slow Magic
How To Run Away

I can't remember who Slow Magic are. Not much info about them on the internet but who cares about that eh? This is their second album and I believe they have been lumped in with the chill-wave lot and I can see why. Its a heat-haze brand of electronica that wibbles and wobbles but its very upbeat, using all manner of horrible 80's era Stevie Wonder synths it culminates in something that is like a kind of jazzy take on the dancefloor friendly electronic music of Caribou.

Ruby Fray
Grackle

'Grackle' is the newest record from Ruby Fray, a songwriter who tells dark stories by the way of sweet Americana melodies. Following up on 'Pith', this record continues to showcase Fray's brand of soft but equally unsettling indie folk, but also utilities left-field tactics, bringing in trip-hop style rhythms on "It's Mine" and honest-to-god beats on "Barbara". Like all good Americana-tinged records, there is a reprise.

Laetitia Sadier
Something Shines

Here's a new album from Stereolab vixen Laetitia Sadier’s which was recorded in Switzerland with a man called David who has lots of keyboards. In fact  Its a truly international record with the drummer recording his parts in Paris, the bassist in Valencia and the strings done in St Etienne. Sadier's own parts were overdubbed in London and the triangle on the title track was laid down in Swanage.  The album is full of delicately textured production, twinkling nuances and shifting chords. A relaxing and invigorating record Sadier has carried on along the path of her parent band but brings a warmth and intimacy to her solo recordings. Bound to be popular this one.

Mass Spectrometer
Guild Hall

‘Guild Hall’ is the second release by Mass Spectrometer, which is the output of Leeds based kiwi producer Michael Canning, and drummer Richard Beech. Guild Hall follows on in the melodic but uncompromising footsteps of the first Mass Spectrometer release, the album ‘Music for Engines in Overdrive’. This EP of 6 pieces is a journey through flooded urban landscapes meeting - amongst others - greater horseshoe bats, gnostic sailors, deranged PR executives, economists, UFO watchers, northern soul aficionados, and gentle astronomers. All ending at a full-moon lit shindig with a soundtrack of crackling sinister guitars, echoed vocals, and shamanic-like drumming. Guild Hall features a guest vocal appearance from Red Lorry Yellow Lorry kingpin Chris Reed on the cosmic and critical paean Frames, with Futurists PLC members Wayne Bennett and Nog Cavanagh adding loud and funky guitar and bass respectively to the garage psych stomp of Luminar, plus David Higginson – from avant garde doyens The A Band - adding analogue synth magic to the crashing and hallucinatory realm of The Invisible Man. The 23 minute Guild Hall was recorded and mixed by Canning and mastered by Matt Peel at Cottage Road Studios in Headingley, North Leeds. Peel is also responsible for engineering and producing the new album ‘Blood’ by Leeds band Pulled Apart by Horses.

We Need Secrets
Melancholy & The Archive

'Melancholy & The Archive', the debut by Canadian shoegazers We Need Secrets, immediately recalls a myriad bands who liked drowning their tunes in that thing we call fuzz: the string bends on 'Melancholy' recall My Bloody Valentine, the happy melodies bring back the romantic pop Eric's Trip, and you can fill in the rest with your lo-fi indie rock band of choice. It's young person shoegaze, and it was mastered by Shellac bassist Bob Weston.   Tracks: How You Remember Months Like Years I Would Take You Over Me Melancholy Uncommitted Crimes The Archive Pain Lines Auster Sleeper Interiors Cycles

Rubberbear
Other Side Of The Fence

Rubberbear are a of mini-supergroup of sorts, bringing together New Order's bassist, Tom Chapman, with ex Fall member Steve Trafford. As their delicately composed single "Let's Move Somewhere Else" attests, the duo's sound is softer and less invasive than the post-punk ruckus that brought them together. Their new EP, 'Other Side of the Fence', continues to honour this attention to detail.

bis
Data Panik Etcetera

I am frankly just a little bit disappointed that this is not a record by the Japanese Idol-Pop group of the same name… Instead, what you get on data Panik etcetera is a trio of Scots making new-wavish punky indie-pop! This is the first new bis material since 2003, so something of a momentous release. On Do Yourself In.

Glass Ghost
Lyfe

Indie pop band Glass Ghost is host to singer and master of the keyboards Eliot Krimsky and drummer Mike Johnson, who made their new record 'Lyfe' with a sprinkling of indie rock royalty: from Sharon Van Etten to members of Here We Go Magic. Glass Ghost's idiosyncratic take on indie and synth pop styles -- throw in some harp for good measure -- meets the startling unique vocal of Krimsky, who is soft, airy and commanding at the same time.

Music Go Music
Impressions

A colourful synth-pop outfit who love to dress up in extravagant costumes and have probably watched a lot of ABBA live DVDs, Music Go Music are releasing their second ever record, 'Impressions', titled with a wink towards its predecessor, 'Expressions'. It's a record by a band that wants the word disco to mean something again, and an unabashed tribute to the corniest dance music -- proof it doesn't just have to exist as a joke from the 80s.

Superstring
Coconuts

Manchester dance act Superstring, with their love of cowbell, robotised vocals and all things outer space, have released 'Coconuts' to coincide with this year's Cassette Store Day. The tape features six tracks of Trekkie-vibes synth-pop. Superstring sound kind of like like if a band took a module in krautrock and were told off by their tutor for not taking it seriously. Motorik for the underachievers.

My Brightest Diamond
This Is My Hand

'This Is My Hand' is the fifth record by indie folk songwriter Shara Worden under her My Brightest Diamond alias, released on Sufjan Steven's Asthmatic Kitty label. Worden's booming voice is complemented by an array of percussion and theatrical synth and what has been described as "huge production", suggesting a less folk directed sound.    Tracks: Pressure Before The Words This Is My Hand Lover Killer I Am Not The Bad Guy Looking At The Sun Shape So Easy Resonance Apparition

Ashrae Fax
Never Really Been Into It

One for all you fans of gothy ethereal 80's referencing music that in another world would have emerged on 4AD with a Vaughan Oliver sleeve. This is a duo from North Carolina who use the regulation drum machine, affected guitars, wobbly bass and octave leaping vocal delivery of the Cocteau Twins. Its a little bit more straightforward than the Cocteau's but uses all their tricks to make some really ecovative music. This is their first new record in 10 years following a successful re-issue of their overlooked at the time 2003 release 'Static Crash' For fans of: Lush, Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil, The Cure

Flowers
Do What You Want To, Its What You Should Do

Flowers are a trio from London who make sparse and often noisy songs that usually follow the golden twee pop rule: a song over three minutes is a song too long. Fronted by Rachel Kenedy's vocals -- which resemble the belted and intentioned performance of London Grammar's Hannah Reid -- Flowers' debut record mixes understated, melancholic guitar pop with the grand climaxes expected of a band who claim to be inspired by Madonna.   Tracks: Young Forget The Fall Drag Me Down Worn Out Shoes Lonely Joanna If I Tell You Comfort I Love You All Over Again Anna Be With You Plastic Jane Stuck

Oldmate
It Is What It Is

Melbourne based Oldmate was initially the solo project of Pat Telfer from Australian band Bitch Prefect (what a name) but has since progressed into a band of 7-10 strong musicians including members of Wireheads and Peak Twins. Still predominantly led by Telfer, ‘It Is What It Is’ is Oldmate’s debut LP, and continues in the same melancholy and discordant vein as earlier material, summoning the spirit of Syd Barrett and Lou Reed, while also recalling Beat Happening circa 1991, not to mention a slightly distinct likeness to their fellow Aussie natives The Go Betweens. Sounds good to me!

Castanets
Decimation Blues

'Decimation Blues' is the work of Raymond Raposa, an alt-country styled, New Weird America-influenced, crackly-voiced musician who makes off-kilter music under the name Castanets and releases it on Sufjan Stevens' Asthmatic Kitty label -- Sufjan himself is a fan, having covered Raposa's "You Are The Blood" for 4AD's famous 'Dark Was The Night' compilation. This new record is a more distinctly pop effort from Raposa, taking on the bleepiest keyboard sounds and the sunniest choruses.

The Kooks
Listen

Hoping that maybe you will and wishing someone would, the Kooks have named their fourth record -- their first in three years -- 'Listen'. Britpop dudes with questionable and possibly made-up accents, the Kooks return with an interest in making their sound shinier and less indie rock: frontman Pritchard decided to enlist Soundcloud producer and hip-hop artist Inflo for the record, so there are certifiable beats on this record.

Produced by both M83 and Morgan Daguenet, the album is predominately instrumental, with dialogue samples from various films and television programs appearing across the songs. The track titles, if read sequentially, form a short story.

Ballet School
The Dew Lasts An Hour

Ballet School don't actually have all that much to do with ballet, but their music is as terrifically melodramatic, with huge vocal performances supplanted into a backdrop of sparkling 80s synth-pop. 'The Dew Lasts an Hour' sounds like if Purity Ring were more straight-forward, and has hints of a less morose Chromatics too. Bella Union have released "Cherish" from the record, which is full of vocal show-boating and marching indie rock drums. Let's get loud.

Merchandise
After The End

I've not heard of Merchandise before but here they are with their third album. Its been mixed by Gareth Jones who produced Depeche Mode's 'Berlin Trilogy' of albums. Everyone has a Berlin trilogy these days. Anyway Merchandise are a typically moody lot. From the little I've heard I'm thinking of Interpol, early Killers and the like. The singer is wearing a nice shade of lipstick  - it really suits him. Anyway here, they've been joined by extra members. Chris Horn does what his name suggests and plays sax as well as other things. According to what is written in the NME this is a much more pop based album than previous efforts. They are sick of faffing about with arty stuff and are now coming for your dollar.  The initial LP pressing will be on green vinyl you know.

Spitfire

Well wouldn't you know it, The Inspiral Carpets are back. Now with original singer Stephen Holt in tow replacing the departed Tom Hingley, “Spitfire” is the first single to be released from their new LP which like many records by returning bands is eponymously titled. Can it be any good? Well we've not heard soundclips yet so the jury is out! Still, I reckon there's still a huge fanbase which will ensure this sells out pretty quickly.

The Posies
Failure

Here is a nice re-issue of The Posies’ 1988 debut. It was originally released on cassette back in 1988, later to appear on vinyl and then CD. this vinyl re-issue contains 8 bonus tracks on a doanload card. There's also a booklet including press clippings and essays from the band. A nice package for what was a landmark album, the duo performed a very straight down the line brand of catchy power pop with nods towards The Hollies, Marshall Crenshaw and Elvis Costello. Yet they had really, really long hair. Later on they became integral members of the reformed Big Star but this is where it all started.

The Tango Saloon
Don’t Close Your Eyes

The Tango Saloon are a tango band who have fixed the genre tag 'spaghetti western' on themselves, which is pretty cool. 'Don't Close Your Eyes' is a new 7" comprising of a single from their upcoming record. It's an all Australian affair, this one, featuring the vocals of singer Elana Stone, who gives the synth -pop tune its high-noon drama. On the flip there's the b-side "Dance Of The Ivory Stiletto". Pretty Sergio Leone, guys.

Mozart's Sister
Being

Mozart's Sister is the moniker of gleeful synth pop songwriter Caila Thompson-Hannant, who's been active making EPs for three years now. Last year, she released 'Hello', a 12" EP with four sparkling, slightly debased tracks which showed off her various musical personalities: from the smirking groove of "Contentedness" to the super melodramatic pop of "Single Status". 'Being' is her debut record. Thompson-Hannant cites Daft Punk and Bjork as major influences over these songs and their disjointed pop hooks. Sufjan Stevens' label, Asthmatic Kitty, releases this one, because of course. The synth is very bright indeed.   Tracks: Good Thing Bad Thing Enjoy Faif Lone Wolf A Move Bow A Kiss Salty Tear Do It To Myself (Run Run) Don’t Leave It To Me My House Is Wild Chained Together

'Native Echoes' is the second record to come from Florida's chilled out garage rockers Beach Day, who make breezy music to sing to palm trees.

You don't have to live in Florida but it helps.   Tracks:  All My Friends Were Punks Don't Call Me On The Phone Bf Fs I'm Just Messin' Around Gnarly Waves Pretty The Lucky One Fades Away Lost Girl How Do You Sleep At Night

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.

David Myhr and his tongue-in-cheek power pop first found a home with Swedish act the Merrymakers, and he went on to release his solo record 'Soundshine' in 2012; it's now getting a vinyl reissue. Full of the kind of stuff that makes Swedish twee pop what it is -- simple choruses, quirky sprinklings of synth and crystal clear guitar -- Myhr is joined by native pop heroes Peter Morén and Andreas Dahlbäck.

The Rosebuds
Sand + Silence

After recording some initial demos in North Carolina, The Rosebuds headed to Eau Claire, Wisconsin to record with their old friend and former band member Justin Vernon (Bon Iver). Their comfort and connection with Vernon allowed them to stretch their creative limbs, as Vernon gently teased out some of the band's most stellar musical performances to date. With longtime collaborators Matt McCaughan on drums and BJ Burton co-producing and mixing the album, the band was able to quickly zero in on the dynamics and textures they wanted, while still feeling free to experiment with new styles and production ideas. The resulting songs are punchier, more confident, and more hook-laden than anything the band has produced before, without diluting the emotional foundation that defines the band.

Bear In Heaven
Time Is Over One Day Old

Bear In Heaven’s new album is aptly titled ‘Time Is Over One Day Old’. It’s a record with a visceral relationship to time and its processes. Where invulnerability and ambition can support you as you grow, at some point they become dead weight and being true to yourself means casting them off, starting anew. This plays out as a powerful analogy for the band across the arc of their career. They’ve always made intriguing records, here especially. It’s easy to see why musicians fall hard for this band. They entice and envelop you. Any ‘Bear In Heaven’ song will most likely greet you with a provocative beat, textural synthesizers and unassuming but adeptly supportive bass and guitar, all exquisitely arranged and glistening. Jon Philpot’s high, smooth, strong voice is so tightly wound into the music that it can be easy to overlook the lyrics, Bear In Heaven’s capacious third dimension. Philpot is a centre seeking, contemplative writer who captures the fleeting thoughts that underscore our emotional lives, the interactions with the world that are both difficult to express and anathema in daily conversation. Here Philpot and partner Adam Wills are more deeply collaborative than ever. This album is darker at times, louder than their others; it feels personal and direct. ‘If I Were To Lie’ places Wills’ bass groove front and centre, ‘Demon’ is riveting and propulsive in spite of its dark pointed lyric and ‘They Dream’ dissolves into three and a half minutes of deeply satisfying ambient synth work in its second half. Wills has always been the band’s anchor, providing rock solid, rhythmic bass lines and guitars that blur the boundaries of Philpot’s synth. Though in moments such as the final track ‘You Don’t Need The World’ Wills cuts through with an audacious, biting guitar hook. It’s a great culmination of the album’s sense of release. This album isn’t about being dark, it’s about releasing darkness and frustration.

Woman’s Hour
Conversations

Woman's Hour are not your average band. The first clue comes in the name of the London-based swoon-pop four-piece, taken from a beloved female-focussed news and culture show on BBC Radio 4. The second is in their graphic, striking monochrome visuals, meticulously curated in collaboration with TATE and MOMA certified fine artists Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg. These play with shape and texture, much like their powerful, iridescent music. On their excellent debut album 'Conversations', this has the intricate construction and intimacy of The xx and the iridescent shimmer of summer-defining indie pop. Pay attention now, or regret it later.

Sam De La rosa
Chameleon

"Sam De La Rosa makes his solo debut on Burka For Everybody. In his last album, Sam De la Rosa, known for being Led Er Est´s lead singer, features a sound that resonates with sci-fi soundtracks and, by means of structure, depicts an aural yet lethargic ascension to outer space. His obscure and rusty pop songs, incorporating sounds coming into contact with oxygen tempered by folk forms, develop like roots that break up solitary urban concrete that looks back at abandoned geodesic domes."

One Happy Island
Your Flaws Aren't Picturesque

One Happy Island is the sound of friends having fun! Brad, Shannon and Meghan recorded this latest album in front of an intimate audience at Armory Sound in Somerville, Massachusetts. The recording is crisp and completely captures their sense of infectious energy and musical aspirations. Although undeniably twee and sporting a cultivated lo-fi sound, there are myriad influences thrown in their musical blender - a little bit of rock n roll, a whole lot of bluegrass and a traditional American folk sound, ala The Carter Family, all mixed together with an effortless glee.

Roman Ruins
Source of Pride

Cyan Haze On Milky White Colored Vinyl.  Source of Pride is the second full-length album by Roman Ruins (Graham Hill). The album continues his exploration into the distinctive yet evolving sound of his solo recording project. The songs on Source of Pride formed as Hill moved his family from Oakland to New Orleans, where he now lives and works as an architect and a father to 2 young children. Hill often worked late at night, which helped define the aural landscape that belies each track. As the songs began totake shape, Hill's wife remarked how "every time I'm pregnant, you're pregnant with an album." The lyrical themes on Source of Pride address the relationships, rituals, and revelations that constitute family. Hill has toured with both both Papercuts and Beach House since 2008, drumming and singing backing vocals for both bands.

Luluc
Passerby

In a world where instant gratification is the norm, patience has become a rare commodity. For Zoë Randell and Steve Hassett, who make up indie-folk duo Luluc (pronounced Loo-LUKE), letting things unfold in due time not only defines their career trajectory, it also works as a pretty good description of their approach to making music. Music that Sub Pop co-founder Jonathan Poneman describes as “bracing, subtle, tender and magnificent.” So while it may seem like Randell and Hassett’s history is littered with all kinds of good luck - from their initial meeting to their relationship with The National’s Aaron Dessner to opening slots with artists like Lucinda Williams, Fleet Foxes and José Gonzàlez; to their deal with Sub Pop; to grabbing the attention of Nick Drake’s producer - being in the right place at the right time isn’t just about fate. It’s about knowing when something feels right and having the confidence that people will respond when they’re ready. There’s no question that everything these Australians (who split their time between Melbourne and their adopted hometown of Brooklyn) have done in their lives has been leading up to this summer’s ‘Passerby’, their second album overall and first available worldwide.  Co-produced by the band and Dessner, ‘Passerby’ shows off all of Luluc’s best qualities, retaining the gentle beauty of the duo’s debut while adding textures built with a cadre of impressive players. It’s the trophy celebrating Luluc’s airtight case that good things really do come to those who wait. The wait is over. The world is ready to hear Luluc quiet and clear. The LP includes MP3 coupon.

Season Sun

Debut album by the new band formed by Super Furry Animals’ Guto Pryce and his wife Lindsey Leven. Folky female vocals atop ’60s-influenced psych-pop and motorik synth-prog. Like a shinier Stereolab or a more bucolic Broadcast, ‘Seasoned Sun’ also features contributions from fellow Super Furry Animals Cian Ciaran and Dafydd Ieuan and ex-Race Horses drummer Gwion Llewelyn.

The Forest & The Trees
Missions

Hailing from Stockholm, couple Linnea and Joel Edin, aka The Forest & The Trees are a striking addition to the canon of quintessential bittersweet indie-pop to emerge from Sweden in recent years. Creating delicately crafted songs, their work showcases a talent for combining playful melodies with the perfectly balanced harmonies of their vocals. Drawing on the music they listened to as teenagers, bands like Popsicle, The Cardigans and The Cocteau Twins, has driven their sound to develop precision, while retaining a balance of the carefree and complex.

Eagleowl
This Silent Year

Scottish lo-fi folksters back with an album that's been two years in the making- a fact reflected in the depth and expansive reach of the band's sound that has grown to incorporate elegantly arranged strings and harmonium in addition to the more ubiquitous guitar, organ and drums. All these elements gently carry the melancholy themes of loss that reoccur along with more lighter moments to keep things from gettin too maudlin.

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart
Days of Abandon

Twee creeps The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart continue to delve into romances that make them lovesick and day jobs that make them think of magic netherworlds instead. The pop hooks are as reliable as ever on Days of Abandon, which recalls Heavenly, Haim and Tom Petty all at once. Nice elucidated shoegaze pop for the days when you want someone to whisper their sadness in your ear.

Cocktails
Adult Life

Cocktails know growing up will kill you, eventually. But somewhere between the mundane strictures of a responsible American life in the 21st century, with its attendant student debt, meager 401 (k)s, and the macro brew-soaked recklessness of youth is a sweet spot. This is where the San Francisco quintet's debut LP Adult Life resides. Gone is the self-described "slop pop" of the band's earlier efforts, replaced by a more mature attitude and classic guitar pop every bit as rowdy, but with a greater attention to detail: mean, efficient guitar solos, Moog flourishes, sweeping boy-girl harmonies, and an overall crisper sound.

Sabina
Toujours

The singer of avant-garde electro-punk outfit Brazilian Girls, Sabina Sciubba is a multi-lingual artist whose music transcends both space and time. The new music is inspired by the rock and pop classics of the ‘60s and ‘70s but within more contemporary recording techniques. Across no less than five different languages, her straight talking debut solo album Toujours is a compelling, intimate, narcotic dreamscape you might call The Parisienne Velvet Underground and Nico, with a surprising sense of humour.

Sylvan Esso
Sylvan Esso

The beats sounds like rusty toy car’ bells making music when they were nostalgic for their time in the countryside. And then the vocalist sounds like she grew up in a big house, and spent her life singing about what the world looked like, and had these elaborate dreams and fantasies about an outside world she’d never seen, and then one day she found the toy car's bells and their music. And that is Sylvan Esso.
