Anna Calvi
Hunter

Why is she so wet? What has she been doing? Anyway for this third album for Domino Anna Calvi has made a visceral and truthful record that explores those very 2018 themes of sexuality and gender identity resulting in her most raw and primal record to date. Recorded by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Grinderman) and featuring Adrian Utley (Portishead) Calvi has made what is sure to be a thought provoking and passionate work.

Pet Shop Boys
Bilingual

While the ‘90s may have seen a slight tail-off in affection for the Pet Shop Boys after they conquered all during the Thatcher years, the decade also had the duo quietly turn in some of their best LPs. Bilingual, their sixth record of original material, is one of these unsung classics. The album maintains a quintessential PSB flavour while also incorporating influences from Spanish and Latin American musics. As with the concurrent reissues of Behaviour and Very, the CD version comes with a bonus disc of rarities.

Django Django
Marble Skies

7" of the title track from Django Django's third album, Marble Skies. This comes backed with a remix from CID RIM, an affiliate of the LuckyMe record label. CID RIM takes the high energy art rock of the band's original, and gives it the electronic edge and sheen his cohort of producers is known for.

Sons Of Raphael
A Nation Of Bloodsuckers

The first ever EP from Sons Of Raphael, the London duo who are not only sons, but also brothers. A Nation Of Bloodsuckers contains four tracks, and if you can look past the come-on-then-mate swagger of the cover artwork, you might find a lot to enjoy in the shoegaze-tinged widescreen indie-pop within.

The Beautiful South
Miaow

Once Hull's second biggest employer, the Beautiful South were an incredibly successful collective and the second band to emerge from the brain of Paul Heaton after his earlier the Housemartins. Miaow was their fourth album and contained the usual pop froth with hidden dark and provocative lyrics. So provocative in fact that singer Briana Corrigan left before the album was recorded over lyrical disagreements.

Jenn Champion
Single Rider

In the press release for Single Rider, Jenn Champion threatens a record that is a cross between Drake and Billy Joel. On both counts, she delivers. And you know what? It’s bloody good fun. The artist formerly known as S has crafted some sexy lights-low pop jams that, with any justice, will get serious rotation over the coming summer. ‘Time To Regulate’, in particular, is a bloody masterpiece that could quite easily slot into Carly Rae Jepsen’s game-changing Emotion.

Big Red Machine
Big Red Machine

Ahh these minstrels will soothe my jangled nerves. Big Red Machine is a collaborative record between Bon Iver Sadboy 2.0 Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner, songwriter and guitarist in The National. Dessner seems to be at the desk on this one, while Vernon's doubling down on his 808s And Heartbreaks-in-a-forest thing. It won’t come as a surprise for us to tell you that Big Red Machine’s self-titled debut LP is the most earnest album ever made.

Marie Davidson
Marie Davidson

Montreal synth-popster Marie Davidson has had a fine couple of years off the back of her excellent 2016 LP Adieux Au Dancefloor. Seems like a good time, then, for Texan label Holodeck Records to set her eponymous 2012 EP to wax for the first time. While Adieux… had a distinctly noir-ish appeal, the darkness is really drawn out in Davidson’s early work. Her coldwave and synthwave influences come to the fore here, with tracks like ‘Esthetique Privee’ bringing Farah to mind.

Wild Nothing
Indigo

My giddy aunt this is an 80s-sounding album. Jack Tatum’s Wild Nothing gig might always have had a fair whack of New Order/The Cure/Echo & The Bunnymen about it, but fourth LP Indigo is the most unabashedly pop-type-thing that Tatum’s ever done. In short, it’s quite a lot like the last The War On Drugs record. You either like this sort of thing or you don’t.

Darwin Deez
10 Songs That Happened When You Left Me With My Stupid Heart

He may have had those frizzy tight curls cut off but here he is with a moustache like that and posing top off for an album sleeve. This is his fourth album which sensibly avoids the current vogue for synth rock and electro textures and simply writes good simple guitar pop with tunes you can whistle. Maybe he's ok after all?

The Kooks
Let’s Go Sunshine

Still being deafened from the roars of the crowds reverberating in their ears from their last arena jaunt, the Kooks return with a bold album inspired by British life, break up and recovery and lost innocence. They've already had one billion streams on various platforms and by my calculations that should result in about 76 album sales.  
  • Vinyl Double LP (KOOKS001LP)

Tony Molina
Kill The Lights

I just can't believe they are marketing this as an album. It's over by the time you've blown your nose but on the plus side the music is absolutely brilliant. Tony Molina writes perfect mini-jangle pop things that sound like a pint-sized Teenage Fanclub or the Byrds. Opener “Nothing I Can Say” is so good but I'd be happy if it was three times it's length. I suppose that's what the repeat button is for.

The Streets
A Grand Don't Come For Free

Upon its release 10 years ago, The Streets second album, A Grand Don’t Come For Free was instantly hailed as another masterpiece to equal his initial clarion call, Original Pirate Material. Unavailable on vinyl for the best part of the intervening decade, Be With Records marks its second release by issuing Mike Skinner’s electronic soap opera on this format.

Tirzah
Devotion

Tirzah has been reaching a particular audience with her contemporary, streetwise voice since her debut EP for the Greco-Roman label in 2013. Now her soulful style reaches a wider audience on her debut LP for big boys Domino records. Co-created and written with Mica Levi who also produced, 'Devotion' is an 11-track set of intimate songs dripping with romance, sadness and desire. This is British R'n'B at its most innovative.

Jerry Paper is the alter-ego of Lucas Nathan, an LA based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He has previously released his music via labels such as Orange Milk and Bayonet, the latter being owned by Brooklyn indie-rockers, Beach Fossils. His new 7”, Your Cocoon is his first release for Stones Throw Records, and includes with an exclusive b-side. If Mac Demarco, Homeshake, Connan Mockasin or Mild High Club are your bag, then you should check this out.

My Autumn Empire
Oh, Leaking Universe

July Skies/epic45 member Benjamin Holton drops a solo LP under the guise of My Autumn Empire. Anyone who’s copped an earful of previous MAE LPs will be expecting plenty of lush, folky acoustic guitar on Oh, Leaking Universe. They won't be disappointed, but they should also be aware that Holton’s chucked some electronics into the mix this time. The addition of synths and drum machines give tracks like ‘Frost On My Shoes’ a bit of a The War On Drugs feel.

Panda Bear
A Day With The Homies

We now have a reason for why Noah Lennox sat out Animal Collective’s Meeting of the Waters EP that came out midway through 2017 - he was finishing off his first solo release since 2015. This limited-edish 12” sees Lennox retreating into the deeper frequencies, combining his trademark Panda Bear-iness with freeform experimentations and non-linear song structures.

En Attendant Ana
Lost and Found

Trouble In Mind (Ultimate Painting, Mikal Cronin) present the debut LP from insouciant Gallic group En Attendant Ana. The band hit on a good formula on Lost And Found, bringing together those early rock and punk styles that the French are so fond of with shoegaze, jangle-pop ala C86 and just a dash of chansons. This quintet have produced ten tracks that are both wistful and welcoming. One of these will likely crop up in the next Richard Linklater flick.

Her's
Invitation To Her's

Barrow/Norway hook ups Her's have aligned themselves with a never ending cycle of album titles. 'Invitation to Her's' follows the compilation 'Songs of Her's' and we predict the next one with be 'Thrown out of Her's' or 'The Police Were Round at Her's' or later their Go-Betweens covers album 'Her's Handwriting'. Aaaaaanyway this is tipped to be one of the biggest indie debut's this world has ever seen.

Laurel
Dogviolet

Up ‘n’ coming Londoner Laurel introduces her debut Dogviolet. Named after everyone’s favourite purple, scentless flower, it broods on the complex old chestnut of love. Focused around yearning, expressive guitar riffs and Laurel’s soulful vocals, it’s a strong new entry in this sort of confessional pop canon. The softened, wilting texture, courtesy of the mixes having been sent through reel-to-reel prior to mastering, help round off the character of things.

Ed Sheeran
+

Life is pain. That, my dear Norman Records™ customer, is just how it is. Break-ups. Boring jobs. Tax returns. Penalty shootouts. Famine. War. Pestilence. Brexit. There is no escape, and there is no true respite. The moments of happiness, of gaiety and light, are but a dappling of sunshine on the shadowed path of mortality. In every triumph lurks failure; in every victory, defeat. But in the darkest moments, remember that we have Ed Sheeran. We have his debut LP +. We have its ubiquitous and Very Clever Indeed singles like 'The A Team'. We have his MBE. Well technically he has it, but really it was awarded to all of us for battling on through the gallows comedy that is to live and breathe on planet Earth. At least - ahh, so very much at least - we have Ed.

Ed Sheeran
X

The year, 2113; the setting, Earth. The planet is a withered corpse. Ravaged by the climate catastrophes and nuclear wars of the previous century, human life has become impossible to support. Societies have either fought themselves into extinction or set off to colonise Mars. The plastic content in the oceans has destroyed all marine life and turned the water into a strange grey substance with the consistency of tapioca pudding. 85% of the Earth’s surface has become uninhabitable due to the merging of all four of the seasons into one year-long period of ultra-heat. In the arctic circle, on the last remaining ice floe, a single tannoy and a lone polar bear. Over the tannoy, Ed Sheeran’s second studio LP X plays on a loop. The polar bear gazes pensively out over the white wastes. These songs mean nothing to him. He sees the sun dip over the lip of horizon. Six months of darkness are come. He lets out a low grunt, barely more than a whisper. Somewhere in the swirl of his subconscious, he asks himself if he will survive this time around. ‘I need you darling, come on set the tone ...’

The Lemon Twigs

Go To School is a concept album telling the life story of a chimp called Shane whose dad just happens to be Todd Rundgren. Jody Stephens from Big Star and Natalie Mering AKA Weyes Blood make guest appearances. 2LP and CD on 4AD.

Justice
Woman Worldwide

While touring Woman, Justice had to reconfigure the album to be suited to being played live. This process unearthed a different side to the album's tracks, one they have documented in the studio on Woman Worldwide. They didn't stop there though, and played some of their best known tracks in the same style as well.

Sparks
Exotic Creatures Of The Deep

The Sparks success is measured through their cult following and critical acclaim rather than commercial chart success. Their 2008 album Exotic Creatures Of The Deep is their most commercially successful album, however, although it still never broke into the Top 50. Now it is available on vinyl for the first time. It features Brenda Is Always In The Way as a bonus track which was only previously available as the flip side of their 7” Lighten Up Morrissey. Heavyweight coloured vinyl on Lil’ Beethoven Records.

BC Camplight
Deportation Blues

Mental illness and addiction left Philadelphia-dwelling Brian Christinzio relocating to Manchester for a fresh start. He recorded the last BC Camplight album, How To Die In The North there with a new band. As soon as it was released he found out he was being deported. After going through a lot of red tape, his Italian grandparentage finally came up trumps and allowed him back to his Manchester life. Then Brexit happened. Deportation Blues is fuelled by the difficulty Christinzio has suffered since his deportation. The lyrics are from an angry place, but are delivered with such grace and melodic beauty, typical of Christinzio's previous work.

Science City  is released by the Peacefrog label.

The Beths
Future Me Hates Me

Carpark Records (Cloud Nothings, Toro Y Moi) present some fuzzy niceness from Kiwi quartet The Beths. Future Me Hates Me is a peppy synthesis of OG twee-grungers like The Lemonheads with the shy coyness found in the more recent fare of Yuck and Mitski. Nice harmonies, nice melodies, and the fact that the four members all have jazz chops ensures a higher level of musicianship that one usually finds on these sort of LPs.

Sometimes Dizzy are sad, sometimes they’re happy, but they’re definitely always cute.

Tim Burgess
As I Was Now

Who would you recruit if you were putting a band together? Me I'd go for Phil Collins (drums), Nick Beggs (bass), Robert Fripp (guitar), Viv Savage (keys) and Elton John (triangle). Tim Burgess went for some lesser names because these were the names he'd already recruited for his band to play on his latest album. Sadly due to our Twitter spat I wasn't considered but little does he know I play a mean cor anglais. His loss. Anyway this was apparently recorded in 2008 which I find hard to believe as Ladyhawke is on it and she was surely about ten at the time.

To commemorate it Animal Collective will produce their second audiovisual album Tangerine Reef (the first was ODDSAC) in collaboration with Coral Morphologic. It's an obvious pairing, coral reefs are colourful, psychedelic, and most importantly, animals.

For this album musical influences have been taken from Bruce Springsteen, Dexy’s Midnight Runners and Norman staff ‘favourite’ Father John Misty, to name a few. Lyrically the album explores the sea, love and friendship. LP and CD on Fika.

Welsh groove-pop from Gwenno on Peski. Y Dydd Olaf is an ode to story telling, the preservation of language and the modern sounds of the Welsh underground. The undeniable influence of krautrock giants Neu! and the psychedelic rock sounds of the 60's, are mixed with contemporary poppy grooves and production akin to bands like Yo La Tengo and Wooden Shjips. It's infectious as hell. Out on vinyl LP.

Remember that Tobias Jesso Jr. guy from a few years ago? Davis could be his sister.

Human Resources is the product of Brazilian two-piece RDTK - made up of former Hospital/Digitalis signee Ricardo Donoso and bassist-for-hire Thiago Kochenborger - and it’s a nervous record for nervous times. Tracks like ‘Seal The Chamber’ and ‘Affective Forecasting’ have a sort of Depeche Mode meets Nine Inch Nails vibe to them. One for all you Doomsday preppers out there.

Bella Union with another yet another record of big-room indie niceness here. This time the accused is Ed Ridman, also known as Hilang Child, and his debut LP Years. These are ten tracks of chest-puffed-out, angel-voiced electro-indie that references everyone from Wild Beasts to Death Cab To Cutie. Will sound great as you crack open your fourth can of craft cider during the late-afternoon slot at Latitude.

Teatime Dub Encounters

Underworld & Iggy Pop originally began collaborating with a view to coming up with something for the Trainspotting II film. Makes sense, and when you think about about it Underworld and Iggy have a lot of complementary attributes. This makes Teatime Dub Encounters a better record than it should be. ‘Bells & Circles’ has an early LCD Soundsystem thing going on, finding the exact midpoint between ‘All My Friends’ and ‘Us Vs. Them’. The rest of the EP flits between this dancefloor sound and more cerebral ambience.

Laura Veirs
Carbon Glacier

Oh I loved this album when I was a much younger man than I am now. 2004 in fact. I'm sure it saw me through some bleak winter or other. This was Laura Veirs breakout record and was the point where her lush and swoon-some style of icy songs really took hold. You can literally smell the Pacific North West on this collection. First time on vinyl and a perfect record to get you through the next few months.

Spellling
Hard To Please

Classsic. SPELLLING is another example of a misspelt band name but the joke is perhaps on us as the mispelt word is indeed Spell(l)ing. Anyhoo this is the project of Bay Area artist Chystia Cabral who makes swirling, spiritual dance music from her own apartment and even covers Sparks on the B side.

Zuzu
Made On Earth By Humans

Zuzu is a Liverpool-born singer and songwriter who moved to London to pursue her musical ambitions. It turns out she caused enough of a stir to be snapped up by Virgin/EMI. Her debut EP, Made On Earth By Humans shows her talent for sharp lyrics and writing a great hook. She has been likened to Haim and will also be touring in support of Courtney Barnett. 10” single on Virgin/EMI.

The Go! Team
Semicircle

Semicircle is the fifth album by The Go! Team. Their mission to bring joy to the world this time around took them ultimately to Detroit where the group’s mainstay and founder Ian Parton found The Detroit Youth Choir. The resulting album contains a bunch of uplifting tracks featuring a gang-style choir, a marching band and a few surprised from Parton’s box of tricks.

James
Living In Extraordinary Times

I learnt my lesson when I called James 'serviceable' and therefore created a Twitter storm. I later apologised and called them 'functional' instead but were their fans happy? Well, no not really. So I will refrain from saying anything other than they are back with a new album influenced by Trump and all the things going wrong in the world.

Lykke Li
so sad so sexy

Rarely has their been a more clear expression of intent as the title of Swedish pop musician Lykke Li's fourth album, so sad so sexy. She's let behind the cinematic ambition that defined her earlier work and moved onto a style more reminiscent of the RnB you'd find topping the charts. But yeah, sad and sexy for sure.

Phantastic Ferniture
Phantastic Ferniture

My instinct was to tell you that hey, Phantastic Ferniture isn't how you spell anything, but then I realised I should probably lighten up, 'cos this band make garage rock that's fun and unthinking. Counting Julia Jacklin among their numbers along with Elizabeth Hughes, Ryan K Brennan and Tom Stephens, they create work much different from their solo pet projects, going a bit harder and janglier in their quest for a good time.

ShadowParty

Okay wow, so this is a collaboration between some of the newer members of DEVO and New Order. That's got to be good right! Right? Right?!? Lead single 'Celebrate' is a nice bit of anthemic stadium rock that'll do well one the festival circuit. ShadowParty is released on Mute.

Kyle Falconer
No Thankyou

As someone who proudly wears jeans for more than four days in a row I'd more or less forgotten The View. So imagine my surprise when reading through the press releases I find this, the debut from View frontman Kyle Falconer. No Thank You is all anthem rock and sweeping Boney M strings and apparently The View never broke up?

The Essex Green
Cannibal Sea

The Essex Green were a part of that much-loved Elephant 6 collective, though this grouping was all gone by the time they released their third album Cannibal Sea in 2006. Positively lovely psychedelic pop to make you happy and the sun come out. Here reissued on vinyl by Merge, with a download code that also adds in three rare cuts in digital format.

The group are much loved for their literate and whip smart indie-pop and here create a beautiful work to rival the best releases on the label. First time on vinyl for this and remastered from the original tapes.

The Shacks
The Shacks

While you may know The Shacks best down to The Shacks opener ‘This Strange Effect’ being used in an iPhone commercial, this young NYC duo have enough about them to suggest they’re more likely to hang around than previous Apple picks like Steriogram. Their self-titled debut record features some fine songwriting pitched somewhere between Ray Davies and Mazzy Star, and singer Shannon Wise has a great husky coo that recalls Jane Birkin. Originally released in 2016, this reissue on Big Crown comes with a couple of bonus tracks.

The Long Goodbye

This is the second album from The Essex Green, and their sound on it comes pouring through the speakers in waves of lovely joy. Psychedelic pop music just like they used to make it. Reissued by Merge on vinyl with a download code that includes some rare bonus tracks.

Soft Candy
Bixarre Luv Pyramids

Soft Candy get strong comparisons to the likes of The Byrds, White Fence, and The Zombies, but I would definitely chuck The Beatles in there as well. Delicately crafted, and deeply psychedelic baroque pop, warbling vocal leads and group chanting over a bed of the hypnotic trance of the everlasting youth of the late 60s. Where are my kaleidoscope glasses?

Le Tigre
Le Tigre

Le Tigre were a political pop trio led by chief Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Julie Ruin). Their eponymous debut was originally released in 1999 and is now reissued on vinyl. The fusion of politically charged feminism and angry pop has made this a classic. This album contains arguably their best moment with the opening track, Deceptacon.

Soft Riot
The Outsider In The Mirrors

Get yourself onto YouTube and search Soft Riot and album title in the search bar, and you'll find a genuine 'promotional film', not a trailer or an album sampler, but an actual promotional film. I can't decide if this is the future of music advertisement, or a whimsical attempt at selling music? Either way, The Outsider In The Mirrors is the latest release from Soft Riot and is available on vinyl LP, CD and Tape from Possession Records. (Seriously, search that promotional video, it's hilarious).

Belle and Sebastian
Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant

'Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a Peasant' is the fourth record by twee/indie pop band Belle & Sebastian. It's notable for featuring lead vocals from artists other than Stuart Murdoch, something that was only occasionally incorporated on predecessor 'The Boy WIth The Arab Strap'. It brings in more orchestral elements, too, relying on a proper string section.

Tim Burgess
Inspired Again

Nearly a decade ago The Charlatans frontman, Tim Burgess got together with Ladyhawke, Deb Googe of My Bloody Valentine, Martin Duffy of Primal Scream, Josh Heyward of The Horrors and Stefan Halperin of The Klaxons to fight the post-christmas, pre-New Year lull by recording some songs. The album, As I Was Now, appeared on Record Store Day 2018. This single, Inspired Again is lifted from the album and features a cover of Suicide’s Cheree on the b-side. 7” single, limited to 300 copies on O Genesis.

Maps & Atlases
Lightlessness Is Nothing New

After a long six years out of the game, Maps & Atlases return with a new LP. Anyone expecting the time-signature acrobatics of math-rock milestones like Perch Patchwork will need to leave those preconceptions at the door though, because what we have here is a full-on indie-dance record. Lightly funky in that sort of The Antlers/Reflektor-era Arcade Fire way, Lightlessness Is Nothing New is straight-up pop music.

The Apples In Stereo
Velocity Of Sound

'Velocity of Sound' was where the Apples in Stereo took all their Ramones and power pop influences and went full on buzzpop. The Georgian collective ramped up not only their amps but their songwriting chops too on an album jam packed with fun and fuzzy guitar miniatures. Insanely catchy power-pop that should really be seen as a classic of the genre.

Felt
Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty

Felt were of course a completely unique entity. Led by the eccentric Lawrence they released ten understated but incredibly influential records across the decade we knew as the 1980s. The first was Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty a gorgeous, dark and mysterious album full of plangent guitars and Lawrence's near spoken word Lou Reed-isms.

Happy Rhodes
Ectotrophia

Here's arty US pop singer Happy Rhodes. Ectotrophia is the first properly compiled anthology of her work. Her music blends classical influences, acoustic guitars, synths along with her remarkable and endearing four-octave range voice. It all came to life in upstate New York, away from the hustle and bustle, in the mid ‘80s when she was a mere teenager. Fans of Kate Bush may find much to like here. Double LP and CD on Numero Group.

Julian Cope
Peggy Suicide

Cope’s seventh album marks his reinvention and the beginnings of his Arch-Drude persona. Having moved away from attempts at chart pop with the understated home-recorded albums Skellington and Droolian, this sprawling double LP showed a more ambitious and fully-formed new direction. The songs are politicised, dealing with environmentalism and the then-recent poll tax riots, and imbued with a feminist perspective. 60s psych and garage rock influences are given free rein on the likes of Safesurfer and Drive, She Said, while Pristeen and Beautiful Love see Cope launching into pop with a renewed sense of idiosyncratic purpose.

In a bid to outdo their previous moniker the Bees and make it something even more inconsequential this Isle of Wight collective have now renamed themselves 77:78. Remember it if you dare. The Bees were always great and this promises to be too with influences ranging from 'Smiley Smile' era Beach Boys to King Tubby to Syd Barrett.

Happy, upbeat pop formation Marina and the Diamonds are swarming Norman Records HQ with 7”.

Better Than That is even, well… You can judge for yourself whether the title covers the contents.

Juniore
Magnifique

Man, the French really love the ‘60s don’t they? Juniore’s Magnifique is another one of those Gallic LPs that leans heavily on the likes of The Rolling Stones, Francoise Hardy, The Grateful Dead et al. Tracks like the eponymous cut have a light psychedelic bent to them too. It’s all very Melody’s Echo Chamber.

Simon Love

Once you get past the naff cover artwork and title, Sincerely, S. Love x is a good fun romp from twee-pop chanteur Simon Love. Across the ten tracks here, Love does that sort of Belle And Sebastian/Arab Strap/Regina Spektor thing of fusing folk-pop tropes with wry, self-deprecating lyricism. He seems like a nice bloke. Out via the prolific Tapete Records.

Ana Silvera
Oracles

In 2011 Ana Silvera composed her piece Oracles in response to losing her mother and brother in quick succession. Playing it to sell out shows with Imogen Heap, she went into the studio in 2015 with Bill Laurance (Snarky Puppy), Jasper Høiby (Phronesis) and a number of musicians to lay it down. Finally released through Gearbox this is a truly soul stirring affair.

Palo Santo

New record from popular young people band led by charismatic and enormo-browed singer Olly Alexander.. currently Harrogate's biggest export. The trio play a highly commercial brand of synth pop that appeals to the X Factor crowd but by way of catchy songs and Alexander's left wing, openly gay persona dig a little deeper than the usual download chart tat.

Bamboo
Prince Pansori Priestess

Bamboo is a new collaboration between members of Peepholes and Trash Kit. What they are all about is busy, colourful, slightly off-key synth-pop. Prince Pansori Priestess is highly listenable (and often danceable), whilst also not sounding quite like anything else. Pressed to 180g white vinyl, in a limited edition of 500 copies on Upset The Rhythm.
