Tunng
Songs You Make At Night

Rather like The Great Conjunction in The Dark Crystal, Tunng’s shifting personnel have aligned once again, for the first time in many years, just as they were at the outset.. I remember them back in 2007 as shaggy-haired, semi-electronic Brit-folksters, but something’s definitely happened in the intervening years. This one sounds more like catchy psychedelic electro-pop and dance. Fab.

Blur
Live At The BBC

25 years ago Blur apparently lived at the BBC. Sorry, no, Blur played a live session for BBC Radio 1. This was, of course, around the time of their very famous third album, Parklife, which included the hit I Am The Fly by Wire, Sorry again! I mean Girls & Boys. Girls and Boys is one of the four tracks on this Blur Live At The BBC EP along with Jubilee, Trouble In The Message Centre and Lot 105.

Tahiti 80
Fear Of An Acoustic Planet

20 years ago, French guitar pop band, Tahiti 80 released their first album, Puzzle. To celebrate this landmark, they have recorded, Fear Of An Acoustic Planet, an album featuring acoustic versions of tracks from throughout their career. The band were always a pleasant listen, and certainly know how to write a melody. This acoustic album makes those sweet songs a little sweeter, and perhaps we need a bit of that right now.

Mac DeMarco
2

Oh what a scamp. Everyone's favourite mommy's boy indie rock prankster Mac DeMarco has named his debut album '2'. Whatever next! For all the silliness, Mac can right a bloody good song, and make it sound just weird enough to maintain his credibility. '2' is extremely warm-hearted and as charming as his smile.

Coldplay
The Brothers

Way back in 1999, before 'Clocks' (the song, not actual clocks), before 'Yellow' (the song, not the actual colour), before Parachutes (the album, not the floaty life-saving device), Coldplay were a relatively unknown band. They released a double 7” EP called Brothers & Sisters. Now it’s being reissued by Fierce Panda as two 7” singles. This one is The Brothers and features the songs 'Brothers & Sisters' and 'Easy To Please'.

Horsebeach
The Unforgiving Current

Manchester-based songwriter Ryan Kennedy was inspired by his recent move to Tokyo on his fourth Horsebeach album The Unforgiving Current. The lonely, nocturnal travelogue feel of the record expresses that indescribable sense of loneliness that, weirdly, only comes in extremely populous city centres. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

David Sylvian
Brilliant Trees

Brilliant Trees was the debut album from David Sylvian following the dissolution of his band Japan. The album moved away from the post new romanticisms of their swansong Tin Drum and towards the more acoustic reflective material he would perfect on Secrets of the Beehive. Now re-issued on 180g vinyl. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

David Sylvian
Secrets Of The Beehive

An absolutely wonderful album. Secrets of the Beehive sees David Sylvian at his autumnal best on a beautiful song cycle with contributions from Ryuichi Sakamoto, Steve Jansen and Danny Thompson. Perhaps his most emotional album and a certainly a must for fans of Talk Talk and the Blue Nile. Now re-issued on 180g vinyl.

Beyoncé
Lemonade

Steering away from the sheeny chart-leading bangers that made Queen Bey a hegemonic pop power, Lemonade is yet another pioneering reinvention from someone exploring new territory. Risk-taking has become alien from many modern powerhouse artists; but so long as the likes of Beyonce keep us on our toes, the world will be a better place.

COMA
Voyage Voyage

Presumably titled after Desireless's 1986 smash, this is the German COMA not to Polish rock band of the same name. They make emotional electronica and dreamy soundscapes using an array of instruments both real and computerised and add in vocals to give you the melancholic Germanic pop thrills you require. Another safe space where analogue can meet digital without a fist fight ensuing.

Lina Tullgren
Free Cell

A significant expansion on the aesthetics of her ambitious 2017 debut album Won, Lina Tullgren could win a much bigger fanbase with her sophomore effort Free Cell. Dynamic and tense, while retaining the elements of introversion and reflection that made her debut so acclaimed, Captured Tracks have got themselves another real diamond. 

New Order
Movement

Movement was the debut album from New Order and was the sound of the band finding their feet following the death of Ian Curtis and the dissolution of Joy Division. It's a dark and dislocated work, Bernard Sumner hadn't yet been cast as the band's lead singer so Peter Hook and Stephen Morris both contribute vocals. Sometimes it harks back to the Joy Division sound but also tentatively looks to the future and the more danceable music they would produce later in the decade. Not their best work perhaps but a fascinating document nonetheless.

Fenella
Fenella

Fenella is a project from one Jane Weaver, one of the 21st century's most adept practitioners of psychedelia. Along with two of her bandmates, she has created a soundtrack for Marcell Jankovics’ 'Fehérlófia', a 1981 Hungarian animated film that is a perfect match for Weaver's brand of warm and colourful psychedelia.

Zero 7
Simple Things

Here we have a reissue of the first Zero 7 album, first put out into the world way back in 2001. Still sounds smoothy smooth, an hour’s worth of chilled, romantically inclined music that sends the basslines out to the front of the mix, a warm bed of synths and organs nestled beneath it all. The reissue stretches to two LPs, put out by Rhino.

Coldplay
The Sisters

Before Chris Martin and Co. vied for world domination with the likes of U2 and….oh some other bands. Before the thought of marrying Hollywood superstars, let alone consciously uncoupling from them, had entered Mr. Martin’s head, Coldplay released a double 7” EP called Brothers & Sisters. Now it’s being reissued by Fierce Panda as two 7” singles. This one is The Sisters and features the songs 'Brothers & Sisters' and 'Only Superstition'.

Unloved
Guilty of Love

Unloved is a collaboration between David Holmes, True Detective score composer, Keefus Ciancia and songwriter Jade Vincent. They cite ‘60s girl groups, Jack Nitsche, Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota and Raymond Scott as influences. There’s a whole host of guest musicians involved too: the legendary sticksman Jim Keltner, Wayne Kramer of MC5 and Tommy Morgan who has worked with Elvis and The Beach Boys. Guilty of Love is their debut album filled with their cinematic, noir-ish sounds.

Charli XCX
Charli

There was a girl on my course at university who was best friends with Charli XCX from school. This was just when Ms. XCX was beginning to become famous (we’re talking ‘Boom Clap’ days), and I often wondered if I’d ever get to meet her at a houseparty or whatever, but our paths never crossed. Her friend was nice though, so by that logic we’re going to say that Charli XCX is probably pretty nice too. Go Charli! Her third, sort-of-self-titled LP will surely cement her legacy as the premiere alt-pop star of our age - the inheritor of Lady Gaga’s crown, perhaps? Charli features the ginormous singles ‘1999’ (ft. Troye Sivan) and ‘Blame It On Your Love’ (ft. Lizzo). Haim, A. G. Cook, Cupcakke and a bunch of other famous names also contribute.

Ummagma
Compass

Electronically-enhanced rock duo Ummagma return with their first album in seven years, and their first to ever be released on vinyl. With the long wait explained by the years it took them to move from Russia to Canada, Compass is the album that most accurately reflects the band’s post-genre approach. 

The Lightning Seeds
Jolification

The band that brought us 'Three Lions', the Lightning Seeds, are reissuing their smash-hit album 'Jollification'. It's a gently psychedelic synth-pop romp that's full of Ian Broudie's winsome vocals, big choruses, and the odd hands-aloft moment. It's easy to write the Lightning Seeds off as a novelty act, but 'Jollification' goes a long way in showing how they deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as bands like Pet Shops Boys, Orange Juice, and the La's.

The Stroppies
It's A Hit!

Aussie band, The Stroppies, recorded the four songs on It’s A Hit in 2017. They were committed to tape in true lo-fi fashion using a Tascam four-track recorder. Whilst the lyrics offer a glance into a dystopian future, the music takes its cues from Swell Maps, Alex Chilton’s less accessible solo output and Loaded-era Velvet Underground.

Rachael Dadd
FLUX

Though her surname is Dadd, Rachael Dadd plays nothing like dad-rock so anyone else other than me with that thought can get it right out of their heads. Instead she plays a kind of conceptual, contemporary folk music that has already lauded her plaudits across the globe. This her her first on Memphis Industries following on from work with a slew of different labels. Like most other records in 2019 it in inspired by and a protest to the recent political landscape.   

Tempers
Private Life

Calm down everyone! Stop shouting at each other! Goodness me - Tempers, tempers. Despite having a name that implies vitriol, this NYC duo actually serve something closer to angst than anger on their latest LP Private Life. Entries such as ‘Capital Pains’ (geddit?) find singer Jasmine Golestaneh dealing with the mess of city living over urgent, widescreen synth-pop beats. The War On Drugs and Future Islands are close compadres of Private Life.

FKA twigs
EP1

Think back to 2012, when the remarkable FKA twigs made her debut release. You probably didn’t pick up EP 1 at the time because of it’s highly limited nature, but now you can grab it once more. The slinky four-track EP has been re-pressed to wax by the Young Turks label, and it sounds entirely high-grade. The first steps of a major modern artist.

Friendly Fires
Inflorescent

In the eight years after indie/dance band Friendly Fires' album Pala, there was very little activity. Then suddenly they released a couple of singles and started playing live shows. The cat is now out of the bag and fans will be delighted to hear that album No.3, Inflorescent, is here. It was produced by the band and others including Disclosure.

Florence + The Machine
Lungs (10th Anniversary Edition)

Does Florence And The Machine’s debut LP Lungs hold up a decade on from its release? Only one way to find out I guess. As tenth anniversary editions go this new pressing of Lungs is fairly low-key - just some new colours on the vinyl this time around. For the cheap seats - Lungs is the one with ‘You’ve Got The Love’, ‘Dog Days Are Over’ and the definitely-lyrically-watertight ‘Kiss With A Fist’ on it.
  • Genre(s):

Jadu Heart
Melt Away

If you wear masks people are going to be curious. Who are they really? Is it a collaboration between Simon Le Bon and Geri Halliwell? Cliff Richard and Corey Taylor? No, it’s not. I don’t think so anyway. Jadu Heart are an alt. Pop / electronic duo from the UK who are currently enjoying their enigmatic status and keeping their audience intrigued. Melt Away is their new album, following on from a clutch of well received singles and EPs.
  • Genre(s):

Abram Shook
The Neon Machine

Hailing from Austin, Texas, musician Abram Shook looks like he’s been beamed in from some alternative version of 2019 where the Seventies never ended, judging by the cover to fourth album The Neon Machine, but his Prince/Bowie party riffs and modern beats make his music some of the most loveable out there.

Georgia
Started Out

Georgia is a woman who makes electronic music. Started Out shows the influence of the Chicago house scene of the ‘80s and ‘90s on her music. She used a bunch of kit that the likes of Frankie Knuckles and Mr. Fingers used - 909 drum machines, analogue synths and the like. This 12” includes a remix by Tuff City Kids. On Domino.

TR/ST
The Destroyer - 2

Montreal’s TR/ST comes through with the promised second chapter of his The Destroyer series. As it was with Part 1, The Destroyer - Part 2 is another set of sensual darkside synth-pop from the one born Robert Alfons. Alfons’ writhing delivery is a thrill throughout. Fans of Zola Jesus and Boy Harsher should throw themselves into The Destroyer - Part 2 with relish.

Solange
A Seat At The Table

Solange Knowles’ A Seat at the Table is one not to sleep on for any fans of neo-soul, funk and R&B. Directing an all-star ensemble of contributors including Raphael Saadiq and Sampha, Solange truly realises her vision of an album that explores black womanhood through a self-directed, empowering and contemporary lens.

Shura
forevher

Coming off the back of two years of hard touring following the viral success of her early singles and debut album, Shura (aka British-born artist Aleksandra Denton) presents her eagerly awaited sophomore record forevher. Themed around the emotional rushes of new love, it promises to be a warmer and happier experience.

CHAI
PINK

London’s Heavenly Recordings reissue a long overdue j-pop classic by four-piece kawaii-overloaders CHAI. PINK was first released as long ago as February 2018 by Burger Records, so it’s great to see it available once again, uh, on this side of the pond. The band’s brief, energetic songs explore pop culture at its most excessive and materialistic, and of course it’s strangely compelling.

Pulp
This Is Hardcore

This is Hardcore is the sixth and final album from long running Brit-poppers Pulp and the 'difficult' follow up to their worldwide smash Different Class. Although it had none of the hits of the former, it was a dark and complex work and the sort of artistic statement that showed that the band weren't just Brit-pop stadium puppets. I'd hope in these more enlightened days the artwork would be less degrading to women but them were different days. I'm sure everyone has moved on and learned.

New Order
Get Ready

Once exceptional, New Order have seemingly spent the latter part of their career trying to undo the work of the first bit. Get Ready was their 2000 era comeback album and saw the band return to a tougher guitar-led sound with Peter Hook's bass turned back up again following its disappearance on Republic. Possibly lacking the invention and panache of their golden years, it now sounds a lot better having heard what would happen on subsequent albums.

David Sylvian
Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities

Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities was the second solo album by David Sylvian. The album is made up of two projects coming together, hence the use of the word alchemy in the title. Both projects were worked on in 1985, in between Sylvian's Brilliant Trees and Gone To Earth albums, and featured help from a number of creative types. Avant-garde composer Jon Hassell, Can’s Holger Czukay, Robert Fripp of King Crimson, Ryuichi Sakamoto, jazz trumpeter Kenny Wheeler and fellow Japan bandmate, Steve Jensen all contributed. 180g vinyl reissue on Virgin/EMI

Zero 7
When It Falls

When It Falls is the second album by production duo Zero 7. It was originally released in 2004, so here we have a 15th anniversary edition, I guess. Its available on a 2CD version that includes a disc of remixes by artists such as Stereolab and Danger Mouse. It’s also available on heavyweight vinyl unlike the flimsy original pressing. Features vocals from Sia, Mozez, Sophie Barker and Tina Dico.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Zero 7
Aurora / Mono

Long lasting downtempo electronica crew Zero 7 return with a 12" on Make Records. The a-side is sees the band collaborating with ungoogleable vocalist Hidden on 'Mono' while for the b-side they've worked again with Jose Gonzalez (who is decidedly more googleable). Smooth to the point of being slippery.

Prince
Originals

Prince’s archives must be one of the most lusted-after collections of presumed wonder in modern music, so plenty of people will be delighted to see this major new release. Originals features fifteen songs that Prince wrote for other artists (most of them hits), except that here we finally get to hear the great man’s original versions recorded himself, all but one of them previously unreleased. Damn.

Belle and Sebastian
The Boy With The Arab Strap

On this, their third album Belle and Sebastian were getting used to becoming some kind of accidental indie-rock royalty. They became more knowing with songs about US fanzine 'Chickfactor' and A & R man extraordinaire Seymour Stein. Here, leader Stuart Murdoch began his crusade to let other band members sing which is always a bad idea as at the end of the day it's all about the voice innit?. Still, good album. Re-issued as part of the pre-new album celebrations. 
  • Genre(s):

Tears For Fears
The Hurting

An absolute milestone for Phil as his favourite childhood album finally arrived into Norman Records. It contains all Tears For Fears early and great tracks like Pale Shelter, Change and Mad World and sold absolutely billions of copies. Listen to it again, you'll have forgotten how good it tastes.   
  • Genre(s):

The Cardigans
Super Extra Gravity

As things stand, Super Extra Gravity, is the 6th and last album by The Cardigans. It was released in 2005. The band are back together and touring, so who know what might happen in the future. It features the wonderfully titled single, I Need Some Fine Wine and You, You Need To Be Nicer. 180g vinyl LP in gatefold sleeve on Polydor.

Francis Lung
A Dream Is U

Genuinely warm and beautiful pop ballads from ex WU LYF man Francis Lung. Gone are the barely contained chaos and snarls of his past life and in its place is A Dream Is U, something almost... comforting. Captures that pleasant pastoral psychedelia the Beatles occasionally reached for. On Memphis Industries.

Rich Aucoin
Release

Canadian pop wizard Rich Aucoin takes a similar approach to his music as Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips might...or even Dan Snaith AKA Caribou…..or perhaps even those MGMT boys. You get the idea anyway, there’s lots going on and it’s a not of this earth. Release is his third album. On Haven Sounds.

Nadah El Shazly
Ahwar

Nadah El Shazly is an exciting new producer from Egypt’s underground scene, and Ahwar is her excellent debut album, recorded between Canda and Egypt. Collaborators including Sam Shalabi and Maurice Louca helped Nadah to get her vision of semi-improvisatory avant-jazz Arabic songcraft down on tape. Ahwar really sounds like little else.

Molly Burch
Ballads

Molly Burch’s first release of new material since 2018 sophomore LP First Flower is evocative and wistful. This one’s entitled Ballads, and both ‘Only One’ and ‘Your Party’ fit into the well-worn singer-songwriter lineage. However, there is an economy and sparsity to the songs that places them more at the Angel Olsen end of the spectrum than, say, the tongue-twisting storytelling of Bob Dylan.
  • Genre(s):

Thom Yorke
ANIMA

Thom Yorke (of you know... Radiohead?) will not be releasing his third solo album via BitTorrent. Instead, us lowly so-called "record stores" get a chance to hawk his dirty work. Anima is a companion piece to a film made with auteur director (and regular collaborator) Paul Thomas Anderson. Expect fidgety electronics, haunting vocals, and anxieties of all varieties.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Arctic Monkeys
Cornerstone

Probably the only Arctic Monkeys song to regularly make me cry (in a good way that is). A wonderful slice of kitchen sink drama that should silence any remaining Alex Turner naysayers. Their best tune yet and you can hear the Richard Hawley influence snaking through the golden Sheffield afternoon.   "And I elongated my lift home, Yeah I let him go the long way round, I smelt your scent on the seat belt, And kept my shortcuts to myself".

Maripool
I See Everything I Know Nothing

Natasha Simões set up her Maripool project in her bedroom a couple of years back, christening it herself as a “one girl band”, and releasing the results on cassette. After her Adult Weakness EP put her on the radars of indie publications around 18 months ago, her debut full-length I See Everything I Know Nothing arrives with high expectations. 
  • Genre(s):

Yellow Days
Is Everything​ ​Okay​ ​In​ ​Your​ ​World?

This is one for fans of chilled out indie with a hip-hop flavour. Think King Krule with more of a soul feel. Is Everything Okay In Your World is the new album from Manchester-based Yellow Days. Like psych titans such as Mac DeMarco and Kevin Parker, Yellow Days remains avowedly lo-fi and DIY. Expect downtempo beats, mellow vibes, and gravelly croons.   
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Kaiser Chiefs
Duck

Duck is the new album by Kaiser Chiefs. What I’m going to focus on here is the eleventh track, titled Kurt vs Frasier (The Battle For Seattle). What are we to take from this, as a song, from Kaiser Chiefs? Where do Nirvana or Dr Frasier Crane, or indeed Seattle, fit into the universe of Kaiser Chiefs? Why have they done this? I wish I knew. On Polydor.

Girl Ray
Girl

A follow-up to their lush, intimate debut album Earl Grey that established them as one of the country’s best new indie groups, Girl Ray broaden their sonic palette for sophomore effort Girl. Meant as a tribute to their childhood love of pop and R&B, producer Ash Workman has twisted their sound into something sharper and more dancefloor-orientated.

Presented on a special 10” vinyl, The Last Bastion of Fox Quality puts a melodic spin on influences as diverse as folk and shoegaze.

Body Of Light
Time To Kill

Dark synth-pop brothers Body of Light are still at it on Time To Kill, their third album. Odds are they've been compared to Depeche Mode before, but I'm gonna do it anyway, because they sound quite like Depeche Mode. As an album it represents refinement of their sound, a refinement that lets them go deeper and darker than ever.

Another Sky
Life Was Coming In Through The Blinds

London-based epic indie rockers, Another Sky, are finally releasing their two previously digitally released EPs as one LP under the title Life Was Coming In Through The Blinds, which was also the name of their second EP. This is their first physical release, with a debut album proper expected in 2020. Exciting times, people. 

Eiko Ishibashi
The Dream My Bones Dream

Eiko Ishibashi is a remarkable artist, somehow equally at home singing heartfelt, delicate lounge-jazz pop music and collaborating free-improv style with Darin Gray and, er, Merzbow. The Dream My Bones Dream is a songs record, though it is rich with details of instrumentation and texture. Jim O’Rourke fans should know that Eiko’s playing is all over his recent work, and he returned the favour by mixing this. On Drag City.

Black Marble
Bigger Than Life

Buses. Inspiration for many musicians over the years the latest of which Chris Stewart. His ride into the studio on the Echo Park to downtown L.A. service provided the inspiration for Bigger Than Life his third album under the Black Marble moniker. The result is fresh and lively synth pop on which Stewart played every instrument. Kudos to the bus driver for enabling this to happen.

Malmo's Hater return with a standalone 7" featuring two brand new tracks and following on from their Fire debut Siesta from back in 2018. They make dreamy, angular pop music with vocal nods to Nico cutting through guitar led ambience to wallow in what they self describe as a beautiful mess. Title may or may not be Rugby related.

Cosmo Sheldrake
The Much Much How How and I

Anthropology student, wonderfully monikered, very talented musician - it seems Cosmo Sheldrake has got it goin’ on. The Much Much How How And I is his debut album, the sound of which is influenced by the classic ‘60s pop of The Beatles and The Kinks along with the diverse classical compositions of Igor Stravinsky and the avant-garde musical stylings of Moondog, his university career, a trip to New Orleans and his interest in how people make music. LP and CD on Transgressive.

Yellow Days
Harmless Melodies EP

Yellow Days is the alias of George van den Broek who makes lo-fi indie like King Krule or Mac DeMarco in his shed. Sounds are drenched in tremolo, chorus, and phase, and everything sounds super woozy. Perfect for summer days with an ice-cold jug of juice. One day he might be making hip hop beats, who knows.

Radiohead
OK Computer - OKNOTOK 1997-2017

If you happen to be a fan of this album then here’s something you might want to get your mitts on. The whole album remastered plus the B sides from the singles of the time plus the holy grail for Radiohead fans,  three unreleased and long sought after tracks dug out of the vaults. All formats have all the bonus stuff on so if you miss out on the opaque blue vinyl you are still ok (computer).

Lloyd Cole
Guesswork

Consisting of fewer, longer songs and minimal lyrics, Lloyd Cole’s 11th solo album sees the indie legends face up to the inevitability and uncertainty of ageing. Guesswork, as opposed to his last outing Standards six years ago, also embraces electronic textures, adding up to one of the most profound records he’s ever released.

Psychemagik

The airy vocals of New York singer Quinn Lamont Luke adorn the latest single from production duo Psychemagik. ‘We Can Be One’ takes its funk riffs down a lysergic rabbit hole, and showcases all the band’s best elements. The four-track EP is completed by a Kassian remix and instrumental versions of both.

Flume
Some Minds

Flume’s new track, Some Minds, gets the white label treatment. The Australian producer has enlisted the singer of Miike Snow to assist with some dramatic, sweeping vocals, which fit very nicely with this widescreen electronic pop number. On the B-side is an extra-housey Flume’s remix of Collarbones’ ‘Turning’. On Future Classic.

The Spook School
Dress Up

Dress Up is the debut LP from Scottish DIY punks The Spook School. This is one of those records that makes you feel like you've found a new friend by the end of it. Across a baker’s dozen of songs the band pen witty, moving odes to gender, identity and social anxiety. Sonically we’re talking charmingly ramshackle jangles ala Ezra Furman and Joanna Gruesome. A winning record.

Porches
Pool

Songs about settling down always worry me. It's can't be easy to find inspiration about a trip to IKEA to get a new bedside cabinet. However, settling is apparently what this album is about. On initial listen it's soothing and melancholy electronic pop with very pretty vocal harmonies. Sounds pretty lovely actually. Limited coke bottle colour spot gloss sleeve for Indies only.

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.

Toro Y Moi
Outer Peace

Toro Y Moi's prolific Chaz Bear moved for awhile to the wilds of Portland to make his previous album Boo Boo. Whilst there he got to thinking about how technology ruins our day to day lives and the constant instant gratification we experience. i hope this leads to a Toro Y Moi album that we can enjoy as much as his earlier albums as Chaz himself could possibly do with a step away from the computer to re-discover some form.

Cigarettes After Sex
Affection

Cigarettes After Sex have made a big splash in 2017. Despite the dodgy name, the music is great. Affection, the El Paso, Texas band’s debut single, finally gets a physical release on 7” after previously only being available as a download. Buy this and discover where it all began for the ambient pop maestros.

Of Monsters and Men
Fever Dream

They became the first Icelandic band to reach one billion streams for their ubiquitous hit ‘Little Talks’ at the start of the decade - now, Icelandic group Of Monsters And Men deliver a third studio album. Produced once again with the help of Rich Costey, Fever Dream represents a subtle change of direction, if lead single ‘Alligator’ is anything to go by.

(Sandy) Alex G
Trick

It's the new one from Alex G. Trick is the thirteen tracker from the Philadelphia based musician and songwriter. This is one for all the indie weirdos out there, with each track lead by Alex's wonky melancholic croon over an acoustic guitar, with some bits of casio keyboards and other lo-fi bits and bats. Think Mac Demarco & Elvis Depressedly. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Lucky Number.

(Sandy) Alex G
Rules

Previously only available from Alex G’s bandcamp, Lucky Number announce the release of ‘Rules’, the most recent album by the Philadelphia-based songwriter. Following in the footsteps of his highly acclaimed 2014, fifth album release ‘DSU’, ‘Rules’ -which was recorded before ‘DSU’- has been remastered for vinyl release for the first time and is a well deserved document of the prolific songwriting personality that is Alex G.

St. Vincent
Masseduction

Masseduction is the new album from St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark. It is her 6th, if you count the one she did with David Byrne. As the title may suggest, themes of sex, power, vulnerable relationships and death weave throughout the lyrics, which are autobiographical, according to Clark. Musically, Clark’s inventive guitar, synth and electronics create a punchy sonic backdrop.

Los Retro
Retrospect

Los Retros, aka 19 year-old Californian dude, Mauri Tapia, makes music inspired by ‘70s AOR and leftfield Hispanic pop. A weird, ostensibly incompatible mix, you may think. However, the resulting sound will delight fans of Mac DeMarco. Retrospect, his debut EP, could well be the soundtrack to your hazy summer days.

Alice Cohen & The Channel 14 Weather Team
Artificial Fairytales

For her sixth album, New York-based composer and songwriter Alice Cohen is joined by crack instrumental team The Channel 14 Weather Team (Adrian Knight and David Lackner). The change will only bolster her reputation for slinky, chic and highly inventive art pop to soundtrack gallery spaces and decent clubs.

School of Language
45

A concept album about Donald Trump that’s funky as hell, you say? Weird request, but okay, here it is. 45 is the new album by School of Language, aka David Brewis, one half of Field Music. It takes aim at the 45th president of the United States and his hangers-on. Inspired by the writings of Watergate journalist, Bob Woodward, Moneyball guy, Nate Silver, and the music of James Brown, The Meters, Sly and the Family Stone and Free.  

Damon Albarn
Everyday Robots

Ex-Blur frontman and the real life human being behind the music of Gorillaz, Damon Albarn has been toying with solo ventures for a minute now, having been commissioned for modern operas and other neo-classical missions. 'Everyday Robots' is Albarn tinkering with the conventions of a standard singer-songwriter record, with electronic flourishes, folk traditions, trip-hop beats and knotty narratives. It features ambient musician and legendary producer Brian Eno, Natasha Khan and excited vocals from the Leytonstone City Mission Choir.

The Pearlfishers
Love & Other Hopeless Things

Ah, The Pearlfishers! following a Scottish tradition for blissful alternative pop music without really being noticed since 1991. Obvious points of reference are Surf's Up-era Beach Boys, The Beatles and Teenage Fanclub but there’s elements of Prefab Sprout and Michael Head that appear in the songs of head Pearfilsher David Scott too. Love & Other Hopeless Things is their new album. LP and CD on Marina.

The Stone Roses
Second Coming

When this Norman Records™ description writer was just a wee nipper he read something in the NME that said the journalist in question had a cat that was more influential than The Second Coming. I’m not sure why, but this has always stuck with me. It’s also demonstrably not true - even though people rag on The Stone Roses’ sophomore LP for the sole reason of it not being released in 1989, The Second Coming is still a perfectly acceptable collection of Madchester bops … isn’t it? Whatever, it’s still shifted more units than that moggy ever will, so get lost Puss!

Grace Lightman
Silver Eater

Judging by the cover of Grace Lightman’s debut LP, it would appear that the title - Silver Eater - is to be taken literally. While it’s not exactly good practice to eat silver or encourage others to do so, things pick up when you get past that bit and on to the music. This is electro-pop at once poised and off-kilter. Silver Eater is not dissimilar to St. Vincent’s recent output.

IDER
Learn To Let Go / Body Love

Guess it's been a while since you needed physical records to become the next big thing.

Ada Lea
What We Say In Private

Musician and artist, Ada Lea, hails from Quebec, Canada. She seems just as at home with a double bass as she does with an electric guitar. Her inspiration comes from a number of sources - artists such a Frida Kahlo and Eva Hesse, the writing of Sylvia Plath, folk/blues troubadour Karen Dalton and all-round genius Nina Simone. What We Say In Private was borne out of a sleepless, yet productive, period of time following a break-up.

Rhye
Spirit

Having spent nearly five years following up his successful debut with 2018’s sophomore effort Blood, Mike Milosh’s Rhye project wastes no time in delivering more new music with eight-track mini-album Spirit. Written around a baby grand piano gifted to him by his girlfriend, Milosh achieves a sense of calm spirituality.

Swimming Girls
Existential Fears

Swimming Girls were put together as a project to write a song whilst they were students in Bath. They bonded over a love of The Cure, Culture Club, Cyndi Lauper, David Lynch and the Winona Ryder/Christian Slater film, Heathers. They liked being a band, so became a band. Existential Fears is their new EP, with four songs spread across two 7” singles.

Great Dad
Great Dad

Great Dad are an electronic duo from London with a DIY aesthetic. Their weird electronic sounds are met with vocals that have been through all sorts of manipulation. What we can draw from this self-titled, self-released cassette is that good or bad, everything seems to balance out in the end. The pair also have another, guitar orientated band, Worm Hears.

Public Service Broadcasting
White Star Liner

40,000 copies sold of their last album.... selling out the Albert Hall? Well our favourite 'putting-bits-of-old-commentary-over-second-rate-post-rock' lot are back with a 4 track EP which you could have got for free by taping off 6 Music when it was broadcast. This time they have turned their attention to that time the Titanic went down. Whatever half remembered nostalgic subject will they latch onto next?

Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough

The Clavin sisters straighten themselves out for their third Bleached album, appropriately titled Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough.

Darren Hayman
12 Astronauts

British indie legend Darren Hayman, formerly of cult favourites Hefner, brings us his 18th solo album 12 Astronauts. Released in the same year as the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the concept is simple - 12 men have set foot on the Moon, and there’s one song for each of them. Lucky for some.

David Sylvian
Gone To Earth

Gone to Earth was the second solo album by David Sylvian and followed on from his debut Brilliant Trees. It's a double album full of brooding imagery and who else but Sylvian could have artists as diverse as Robert Fripp, Bill Nelson, John Taylor, Steve Nye appear as guests on the same album. Also just look at his hair.

Grim Town

22-year-old Northern-Irish singer-songwriter SOAK releasing her second full-length album, Grim Town. We haven’t heard the whole thing yet, but the first two singles Knock Me Off My Feet and Everybody Loves You suggest it’s got plenty of great and catchy pop songs to make you wonder what you've done with your life so far.

The Tenant

Here is a first vinyl press for Death and Vanilla's unreleased live score for 'The Tenant' (Roman Polanski). They recorded it in 2015 in Spain alongside a showing of the film and shows the bands at their most cinematic, avant garde and minimalist.  Amazing that people still have anything to do with Polanski's work but it's a funny old world.
