Mumford & Sons
Babel

'Classic Mumford' screams the press release. Babel was the second album from the waistcoat wearing minstrels Mumford and Sons and continued their zesty and spirited nu-folk with typically earnest lyrics with brows set to furrow. It continued their quest to remove every semblance of folk from their sound but with 2.7 million copies sold in the US alone they won't be at all worried about that.

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Mature Themes

This was the one where we thought Ariel Pink would drop all the madcap stuff and finally deliver an album that once and for all proves his pop pedigree without the flotsam and jetsam he throws into his LPs to make your mind boggle. However, the title Mature Themes was a red herring and it is bonkers business as usual except for Round and Round which was an alternative hit. Madcap and equally thrilling and maddening music from a true one off.

Foxygen
Take The Kids off Broadway

Once upon a time Foxygen were actually an acceptable musical outfit. Their second album Take the Kids Off Broadway. It nicks bits and pieces off all the '60s and '70s greats to form a collection which sounds somewhat like flicking through an oldies station.  It's a boisterous and fun album made before their unfortunate later leap into more ironic nod and a wink stuff.

The xx
Coexist

Coexist was the second album by very quiet Londoners the XX and continues their self-titled debut's narrow world view of minimalist arrangements and whispered vocals musing on relationship breakdowns. Jamie Smith's beats and electronics start to get more pronounced on this record but remain subtle enough not to override the feeling you are listening to a troubled couple's pillow talk.

John Maus
A Collection of Rarities and Previously Unreleased Material

Does what it says on the tin. It collects Rarities and Previously Unreleased Material from the American musician and places it onto one full length. John Maus is known for his low, low voice which he places over synthesized pop which sometimes recalls the goth/synth stuff of the early '80s. He is very popular. In fact once perusing a dating site, I found a moment who said her ideal man was John Maus. Needless to say, I didn't apply.

Twin Shadow
Confess

Twin Shadow is the project of musician and actor George Lewis Jr. who somehow managed to find his way onto 4AD in 2013 for his second album Confess. It is inspired by a motorcycle accident which didn't stop him from riding the thing again and as he boasts in his press release hitting 100 mph the darn fool. Anyway this is one of his more interesting (or elitist as he puts it) records with nods to the Smiths and Human League.

Hot Chip
In Our Heads

Absurdly well-to-do quartet Hot Chip have been doing their floor-filling electronic disco pop thing for quite a long time now and despite the naysayers (hello!) have done pretty damn well with it. In Our Heads was their 2012 (it seems like only yesterday) album and is one of their best..confidently showcasing their inventive, infectious songwriting. Popular in both London and elsewhere if you haven't got on board their groove ridden Modeo hatch by now then here is a good place to start.

Beach House
Bloom

Bloom was the 'difficult' follow up to Teen Dream the album dream-pop duo Beach House are most likely to be remembered for when we are all old and grey (i.e now). David Fridmann took over production duties and slathered reverb over the duo's songs possibly in an attempt to make them widescreen. It's a partial success - Beach House are always a lovely thing but perhaps they need to be slightly more intimate to be truly affecting.  Still, a middling Beach House album is still a thing of beauty.

The Charlatans
Tellin Stories

Tellin' Stories was the fifth album by Northwich area baggy troubadours the Charlatans but was by some way their most successful. The album was the final Charlatans record to feature Rob Collins who died in a car crash midway through production. It contains top ten hits in the North Country Boy, One To Another and How High. The pinnacle perhaps of their recording history and now out on heavyweight vinyl double LP.

alt-J
An Awesome Wave

An Awesome Wave was the debut album from far-too-brainy-for-their-own-good post everything crew alt J. It introduced to the world their stop/start/stop/start again when another idea comes along form of brainbox pop. Just a little bit weird and as scatterbrained as your eccentric grandma, the album became a calling card for the band who subsequently went on to bigger (if not quite as interesting) things.

Peter Zummo
Zummo With An X

Yes. Good. Anyone familiar with the work of Arthur Russell will have found themselves thinking ‘ooh, that’s a nice bit of trombone, wonder who’s responsible for it’. The answer is Peter Zummo, Russell’s friend and an extremely important figure in the late-20th Century musical landscape. 1985’s Zummo With An X, made with an ensemble that included Russell on cello and voice, is a fine summation of Zummo’s oeuvre. The combination of free jazz techniques, new age aesthetics and (post-)minimalist compositional practice can be compared to Midori Takada. Now Zummo With An X is reissued for the first time by Optimo.

Metronomy
The English Riviera

Their 'classic' breakthrough record. Whereas before they'd hinted at pop classicism amongst the housey electronics, here they penned a gorgeous love letter (ha!) to their homeland. The faux naive pop moves are on show throughout, opener (sort of) 'We Broke Free' is an absolute stunner. More consistent and smooth that the quirky 'Love Letters' it never quite reaches the dizzy heights but still deserves to be seen as one of the best records of the last few years.

You've got Unpatterns freshly implanted in your suggestible mind, a record of relentless pop grooves and electro that swings from the vines. Simian Mobile Disco continue doing what they do best on this record, button-mashing their dance sensibilities with a reverence for ambient and electronica.

First Aid Kit
The Big Black & The Blue

Swedish super sisters First Aid Kit started out by posting You Tube vids of themselves harmonising to Fleet Foxes songs and it didn't take long until they were snapped up by Wichita for their debut album. If you love those sweet sweet harmonies then you are going to love this album which has them slathering their melody over some winsome and rich folk pop. Produced by their very own father, it began a journey that has seen them praised by everyone from Jack White to Patti Smith.

Grimes
Halfaxa

Halfaxa is the second record from Claire Boucher aka Grimes, originally released in 2010, before she became a tremendously big deal. It still has that home-grown vibe, with Boucher’s hazy productions coalescing around her remarkable vocals like a cloud. The feel is of woozy retreat, and it’s hard to resist. Reissued by Arbutus.

Father John Misty
Fear Fun

Though Josh Tillman had already released records under his own name and as part of Fleet Foxes, Fear Fun was the first under his alter ego Father John Misty. The change of name heralded a more mischievous and fun side to his personality which until then had been mired in sad singer-songwriter territory. The result is a joyous and varied album which subtly pays tribute to Tillman's heroes such as Harry Nilsson and Arthur Russell placing their innovations in a new and soon to be commercially successful territory.

Marina and The Diamonds
Electra Heart

Marina & The Diamonds’ albums are being reissued! Electra Heart was her second record, and is full of proper pop bangers. You can get the vinyl edition, or there is a CD version with four bonus tracks. I’d recommend the CD, as one of the bonus tracks is named ‘Sex Yeah’, surely one of the most direct pop titles ever.
