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.

Beth Orton

It was released in 1999 as a follow up to the acclaimed Trailer Park and received a Mercury Music Prize nomination and helped Beth earn a BRIT Award in 2000 for Best British Female.

The Antlers
Familiars

Familiars is the fourth studio album by Antlers after a relatively fallow three years which saw the release of just two EPs: Together and Undersea. Familiars was self-produced but the talents of Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Future Islands) were utilised to mix the album. Familiars is available on indies only opaque purple and black splatter vinyl LP and CD

East India Youth
Total Strife Forever

Seemingly sponsored entirely by the Quietus on release, Total Strife Forever was the debut album from William Doyle under the moniker East India Youth. Much of the hype was justified on an album which blended Animal Collective-like mayhem through to ambient passages and full on thumping techno. Stolen have now re-issued on 2LP/2CD whilst Doyle continues to work slowly now under his own name.   

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.

The Walker Brothers
Nite Flights

One of the most unusual records of all time. Nite Flights was then forgotten '60s combo The Walker Brothers 1978 comeback album. It was split into contributions by each band member with Scott Walker getting just four songs. The album is worth buying just for those four songs as they pave the way for his future more experimental work. Its title track invents everything that happened in the early '80s basically. Astonishingly unusual.

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.

Lana Del Rey
Ultraviolence

Ultraviolence was none-more-sultry singer Lana Del Rey's third album originally released in 2014. It was made in collaboration with almost every big name producer you can think of including Dan Auerbach, Paul Hepworth and many many more. But in this case too many cooks don't spoil the broth as Del Rey built on the success of her debut Born to Die with a more widescreen swooping beauty to her laid back West Coast sounds.

Röyksopp & Robyn
Do It Again

Swedish singer Robyn and Norwegian electronic duo Royksopp have teamed up to record Do It Again, a mini album which is regarded by both acts as a true collaboration, a meeting of minds. The album precedes a new Royksopp full length album later in the year. The trio really felt like a band during the making of the album and even toured in support of the release. Do It Again is available on vinyl LP, with download code and CD.

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.

Gold-Bears
Dalliance

Slumberland records is something of an indie institution and if you want your records jangly, strummy and '90s fixated it should be one of your first ports of call. Gold-Bears are a typical Slumberland band in that they recall the shambling grind of the Wedding Present but have something a little more exotic to offer. This is by way of classically influenced structures that bring to mind the oddball antipodean pop of the Verlaines and the Bats.

Space Daze
Follow My Light Back Home

Danny Rowland's songwriting is based around startling guitar playing -- knotty acoustic riffs complemented with fragments of guitar twang -- and the hushed tones of his own voice, which brushes up against his songs modestly and comfortably. 'Follow My Light Back Home' takes these soft arrangements and gives them elements of grandiosity, with whirring keys and propulsive drumming that make our standard singer-songwriter sound a little more aspirational and ambituous.

Morrissey
Vauxhall And I (20th Anniversary Definitive Master)

When Steven Patrick’s fourth album was released in 1994, it felt like his most well-rounded and mature work. The intervening years haven’t called for any revision of that assessment. While it might have less bite than the Mick Ronson-produced Your Arsenal, the sound is warm and epic. Guitarists Boz Boorer and Alain Whyte work as solid and inventive co-writers to the master of his domain, who at this point is still expressing relatable emotions amid the bitterness. The album spawned three superior singles, The More You Ignore Me the Closer I Get, Hold On to Your Friends and Now My Heart is Full. If this isn’t one of your top three non-comp solo Moz albums, you thought List of the Lost was a cracking read. On CD with a bonus live disc, or heavyweight vinyl.

Alice Boman
EP II

EP II by Alice Boman is the second release on Happy Death, the fledgling London label.

The album was produced by Max Dingel who has previously worked with the likes of The Killers and White Lies.

It is no surprise that death is a theme running through the album, however it is an inspiring and affecting album. La Petite Mort is available on double 180g vinyl LP, with download code and CD.

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.

Giana Factory

British Sea Power
Machineries Of Joy

For all their eccentric ideas, great merchandise and thrilling live shows the actual music of British Sea Power stays in a reliable comfort zone. Theirs is a form of stadium-leaning widescreen rock that sits somewhere amongst the company of The National and Elbow. Machineries Of Joy was their fifth album and as is their want, they found an unusual way of working  - recordings the tracks as EPs then releasing the whole thing as an album once they'd done enough. 

Kishi Bashi
Lighght

Lighght is Kishi Bashi’s follow up to his acclaimed debut, 151a for which he was awarded the accolade of Best New Artist by NPR. 151a was recorded over a stretched out 4 years when, The singer, composer and violinist went on tour with the likes of Sondre Lerche, Regina Spektor and became a full time member of Of Montreal. Towards the end of 2012, his own music became his priority again and work on Lighght began. The album’s title is taken from minimalist artist Aram Saroyan’s one word poem. Lighght is available on vinyl LP and CD.

Women's Hour
Her Ghost / I Need You

This is Kendal four piece Women's Hour's first release on American independent record label Secretly Canadian. Since forming just a few years ago, Women's Hour have won over a considerable fanbase and become one of the most blogged-about bands of the year. This is smooth, modern indie: carefully crafted textures that are rich in detail but powerfully restrained.  

Gruff Rhys
American Interior

The concept here is oddball  - it concerns the true story of a Welshman who travelled to America to discover a tribe of Welsh ex pats. Yet in Gruff Rhys's hands it never comes across as pretentious or wilfully difficult. Instead we get another album of his gorgeous psychedelic pop and that big thick voice of his known more famously as the mouth noise of Super Furry Animals.

St. Vincent
St. Vincent

St. Vincent's second self-titled album is where her pop chops truly met with her avant-pop stylings. It's funky, angular, discordant, catchy and futuristic simultaneously, breeding the hits "Digital Witness", "Birth In Reverse" and "Regret". There's also some tasty downtempo numbers in the form of "Prince Johnny" and "I Prefer Your Love". 'St. Vincent' is Annie Clark's most diverse album to date, and arguably her finest hour. It's my personal favourite anyway...

Busman’s Holiday are a duo made up of brothers Lewis and Addison Rogers. The boys make indie-pop music together and harbour little quirks such as using a suitcase as a bass drum.
