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.

Six By Seven
KluB MiX!33

This a collection of Six by Seven man Chris Olley’s demos and home recordings. Initially appearing exclusively in care packages he would send to individual subscribers, these are raw, dark, industrial cuts. Original subscribers to Olley’s MuZiK KluB need not be too disappointed, as this is limited to just 300 copies on vinyl only.

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.

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.

New Build
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.

Lowlakes
Iceberg Nerves

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.

Seamajesty
Seamajestea

From a studio in the garage (isn’t it always the case?) comes an album of instrumental pop with a low-fi feel (well, it was made in a garage), with the man behind it all, London based sound engineer Mr James Yates, creating all the sounds, doing all the mixing, mastering, the whole shabang. Described as pop for short attention spans, Seamajestea by Seamajesty is a fun ride of fast rhythms and layers of pop goodness.

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.

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.

Peter's Window
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.

The Ting Tings
Super Critical

Shouty indie pop duo Ting Tings continue to be a thing with 'Super Critical', their third record to date. In their time away, it sounds like they've been listening to a lot of HAIM and digging the whole light disco homage thing. 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. 

Paul Smith & Peter Brewis
Frozen By Sight

The Sunderland/Newcastle axis of art rock is in full collaboration mode at the moment. The most esoteric could well be this meeting of Field Music's Peter Brewis with Maximo Park's Paul Smith. 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.

Ariel Pink
Pom Pom

All-nonsense indie rock artist and all-round asshole Ariel Pink continues to make music for cartoons and the adverts you watch in-between with the romantic and also exceedingly irritating 'Pom Pom'. As always, that's probably the point. There's a song -- or jingle -- about Jell-O, so yeah. Good luck with that. Pink says this is his most collaborative work yet despite also being his very own solo record.

Mazes
Wooden Aquarium

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. 
  • Genre(s):

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.

Arctic Monkeys
AM

I have to admit (I'm embarrassed by this) I couldn't work out why Arctic Monkeys called their fifth album AM. Arctic Monkeys. No still don't get it. Anyway after a couple of mixed quality albums where they grew their hairs out and recorded in America, the Sheffield four piece returned with a vengeance on perhaps their most commercially successful album to date. It blended their sound with elements of hard rock, hip-hop and soul and contained several songs that have become concert staples. Barely anything on it suggested where they were headed next but this could almost be seen as Arctic Monkeys Party album before the Pet Sounds of Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino.  

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.
  • Genre(s):

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

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

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. 
  • Genre(s):

Helado Negro
Double Youth

'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.

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

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 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

Sophomore album from Indianapolis siblings Lily and Madeleine, look at them all sleepy on their boat.

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.

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.

The Family Cat frontcat Paul Frederick has a new album with his duo Jack Adaptor, who also feature co-songwriter Christopher Cordoba, with Frederick covering the lyrics and vocals and Cordoba taking care of the instruments and production. It's sophisticated up-tempo indie rock and features homages to the Velvet Underground and Big Star. 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.

Kele
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?

Wampire
Bazaar

Cheery, tongue-in-cheek psych rock seems to fit the bill for this band named Wampire. Their new record, 'Bazaar', is full of guitar fuzz lore, with song titles like "Wizard's Staff" floating around in there. It was produced by Jake Portrait, who has worked with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and helps keep the riffage clear and articulated throughout.

The Clean
Anthology

Anthology serves as a celebration of The Clean, a band whose influence extends so far beyond their New Zealand home that even if you have never heard of The Clean before, you have surely heard of some of the bands (Pavement, Yo La Tengo, and Superchunk, to name a few) who have been influenced by their unique blend of homemade garage rock, hook-filled melodies, and psychedelic experimentalism. The album is a compilation from across The Clean’s legendary career, which began in 1981 and continues today. Merge originally released the 2-CD Anthology in 2003, but in celebration of our 25th anniversary, we felt the time was right to release this essential collection on quadruple LP.

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.

This Is All Yours

'This Is All Yours' is experimental rock act Alt-J's first record since their  conceptual debut, 'An Awesome Wave', and was mostly written in free time around touring that record. "Hunger of the Pine", the record's first single, features a sample of Miley Cyrus' "4x4".    Tracks Intro Arrival in Nara Nara Every Other Freckle Left Hand Free ❦ (Garden of England) Choice Kingdom Hunger Of The Pine Warm Foothills The Gospel of John Hurt Pusher Bloodflood pt.II Leaving Nara

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

The Enemy
Dancing All Night

'Dancing All Night' is a singles collection from Coventry indie rock band The Enemy, collecting songs from their three-album strong discography. It also features B-sides curated by the band itself, as well as previously unheard demos from before the release of debut 'We'll Live and Die in These Towns'.

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.

M83
M83

M83 is the debut studio album by M83, recorded in 2000 and originally on Mute in 2005. 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.

Lemonade
Minus Tide

Lemonade bring their glitchy electronic pop back home with their third record, 'Minus Tide'. It boasts a predominantly percussive sound and also brings the band's production values to the forefront. Autumnal chillwave vibes for all.

FAMY
We Fam Econo

FAMY make huge, soundscaped pop music that wants the all caps HEAVY POP genre tag Wu Lyf took up. Their latest record, 'We Fam Econo', utilises a range of instruments -- from blasts of organ to soft uke strumming - that ornament their strong guitar melodies. 'We Fam Econo' promises to be widescreen indie rock for a band with lofty ambitions.

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.
