The Young Knives
Sick Octave

The Young Knives stab back with their fourth full-length album: Sick Octave. Credit where credit’s due: this work was self-produced and self-released, and for all the band’s occasional inconceivable quirkiness, the individual drive behind the work really pays off. The band's endeavour cannot be faulted.

Best Coast
Fade Away

The title seemingly reflecting their career, Fade Away saw Best Coast continue their move further away from lo-fi summer pop towards a big budget '90s sound. It is a worthy addition to their catalogue however stylistically sitting somewhere between their two albums and though influenced by esoteric acts such as My Bloody Valentine and Mazzy Star, coming across more like the Californian pop peddled by the likes of Hole and Four Non Blondes.

Monoganon
F A M I L Y

Scottish art crew Monoganon do some mathy addition and subtraction and cos and sin nonsense, crafting a record that's as exuberant and free-wheeling as it is technically devotional: the time signatures that drive F A M I L Y stutter and change, but these tracks move with the slow, evocative beauty of Slint and Grizzly Bear. This record is a crystalline knot.

Tera Melos
X'ed Out

Twiddle-dee twiddle-dee dee, it’s the math-rock life for me. To be fair Tera Melos have always proved themselves to be a damn sight more discerning than many of their self-indulgent peers. Their ability to combine technical showmanship with forthright post-hardcore and punk rock remains in good nick on new LP X’ed Out. All the usual comparisons hold - At The Drive In, Don Caballero, a little Minutemen...

Love Inks
Generation Club

A soft, supremely subliminal record from Love Inks here, who continue to understand the need for the minimal and the understated in drama. Generation Club is the band's dreamiest work on display, with "Solar Diary" treading a middle-ground pace as Sherry LeBlanc intones softly and hazily. Altogether nice vibes.

M+A
These Days

The playful, sophisticated dance pop of Italian duo M+A's second album These Days is so seamlessly hooky and compelling that upon listening it's hard to imagine a world without it. It's a perfect distillation of a yearning for endless summer. M+A's 2011 debut Things. Yes was an inventive and spirited exploration of an organic, heartfelt variety of genre-hopping electro-acoustic pop that promised many good things to come from the young artists. But, perhaps nothing could've prepared us for These Days. M+A is Michele Ducci, 22, (vocals, instruments) and Alessandro Degli Angioli, 25, (instruments) of Forli, Italy. These Days is the result of meticulous collaboration begun in spring 2012, often from great distances with both members frequently on the go. "In this album we tried to experiment mainly with the song form, freeing ourselves of any bias towards any genre," the pair explain. "We haven't tried to remain faithful to anything." Rather than relying on samples, M+A played all of the instruments, apart from the impressive acoustic drumming of Marco Frattini. From the very first seconds of These Days, the album is off and running with lush hooks driven by the propulsive beats, pizzicato strings and syncopated electric piano of dancefloor-filler "When." The hooks never stop throughout the 11-song, 42-minute album. "B Song" evokes the blue-eyed retro-funk of late 90's era Beck. "Down The West Side" is a masterful slice of sun-drenched pop perfection sure to soundtrack many a summer BBQ or banish those rainy day blues, while songs like "New York There", "Game", "Practical Friday" and "Midnight Radio" easily pair up alongside recent 80s-reminiscent efforts by artists like Daft Punk, The Strokes and Phoenix. With These Days, M+A effectively prove themselves worthy of a place among their more celebrated contemporaries. The album will be available on CD and digital download and also as a deluxe 180-gram vinyl edition (300 copies on white vinyl with colour printed inner sleeve and a free album CD included inside Tracks : 1.  When  2. B song  3. Down the west side  4. Freetown solo  5. Game  6. New York there  7. L.E.M.O.N.  8. Practical Friday  9. De-light  10. Slow  11. Midnight radio

Birdy
Fire Within

British singer-songwriter Jasmine van den Bogaerde, aka Birdy, really can't fail at becoming massively famous now.

Her debut album was number one in loads of countries and top 20 in the UK. Get the next one here on vinyl.

Cloud Control
Dream Cave

Psychedelic pop from Cloud Control on their second album, Dream Cave. Melodic tunes with harmony based vocals, expect some nice reverb and some heavily percussive tracks which change from summery, fun numbers to dark, brooding pieces. CD and Vinyl lp. Vinyl is a gatefold with a booklet and download code included.

Terry Malts
Nobody Realizes This is Nowhere

Terry is a right '70s name isn't it? Terry Malts then is the perfect moniker for this San Franciscan lot who are blatantly in love with the buzzsaw pop-punk of the late '70s. They count the Undertones and the Descendants amongst their influences and their drummer is perfectly named as Nathan Sweatt. No relation to Keith...another fine name from the 1970s.

King Krule
6 Feet Beneath The Moon

While not quite the masterpiece that the more breathless factions of the British music press were rather unfairly demanding from a then-teenage Archy Marshall, 2013’s ‘6 Feet Beneath The Moon’ is still a damn fine debut LP from King Krule. This is an album of poetic musings that shows real range. Across the record Marshall glides between Millennial Billy Braggisms (‘Out Getting Ribs’), jazzified post-punk (‘A Lizard State’), unfurling hip-hop (‘Neptune Estate’) and a few other styles.

MONEY
Shadow Of Heaven

MONEY (their capitalisation) were touted by many in the music industry as the next big dramatic thing that we should all doff a cap to. They were DEAD SERIOUS and made the sort of yearning emotive ballads that made Elbow sound like Bucks Fizz. Shadow of Heaven was their debut album on Bella Union released in 2013 after they were picked up by indie hoover Bella Union.

Belle and Sebastian
The Third Eye Centre

Often locking their best tracks away on B sides, Belle and Sebastian compilations are sometimes just as essential as their full length albums. The Third Eye Centre is a follow up of sorts to their earlier Push Barman To Open Old Wounds collection, taking in singles, EP tracks, B sides and even a the Avalanches remix all from their later more pop-centred years.

Washed Out
Paracosm

Washed Out burst onto the scene with the excellent debut Life of Leisure which became something of a chillwave (remember that?) classic. Debut Within or Without was a limp disappointment but things improved a bit with Paracosm. Ernest Weatherly Greene Jr (for it is he) used 50 different instruments on this. Not that you could always tell but it expanded his palette somewhat. However there's a twist. Following the album he moved to Stones Throw and created the great Mister Yellow. Buy that first perhaps but this is no slouch.

The Love Language
Ruby Red

The Love Language, aka Stuart McLamb, recorded his first album on his own with a four-track, then went on a critically acclaimed tour with a seven-piece band, reassembling the songs as he went. 2010's 'Libraries' was also a solo affair. This time he's brought in 20 different musicians from all over the world and the result, though true to form, sounds more accomplished than his previous work. Available on LP or CD.

Pinkunoizu
The Drop

Danish psychedeliacs Pinkunoizu come through with The Drop, their second LP for Full Time Hobby (The Hold Steady, Timber Timbre). This record is a mind-expanding blend of Motorik Krautrock, noise, trippy ambiences and a wee hint of prog. The Drop's more beat-driven cuts stand on par with Moon Duo, while the freer sections bring The Flaming Lips to mind.

Flume
Flume

Despite branding it 'close to perfect' Rolling Stone still only awarded Flume's self titled debut 4.5 out of 5 which is still a good score but a whole 0.5 away from perfection. Still this was a much loved future pop record at the time from the young (then) Australian. A cool electronic soul record with a host of guests and a roomful of admirers. Now re-issued on Wichita.

David Lynch
The Big Dream

The Big Dream was acclaimed film director David Lynch's second solo album. Most of it is self written but he has time to slot in a Bob Dylan cover on an album he describes as modern blues. Lynch however uses electronic production touches to keep things interesting and of course the album showcases his eye (and ear) for the cinematic.

Tim Burgess
The Doors Of Then - I Am Yours I Am You

If there's anyone in the rock business Tim Burgess doesn't know personally then I'm yet to hear about them. Little Timmy hung out with the Brian Jonestown Massacre's Anton Newcombe in LA in the '90s and the two remained pals. So much so that the latter remixed a couple of tracks from the former's Oh No I Love You giving them something of his off kilter psychedelic edge. Available on yellow vinyl on 'a' recordings.

Empire Of The Sun

Album number two of bracing pop extroversion from aussie duo Empire of the Sun.

Ex Sleepy Jackon and Pnau peoples.
