Vampire Weekend
Father Of The Bride

Vampire Weekend’s new album comes to us without any information other than the number of different formats there are (4). It’s their first album in five years, so yay! It’s called Father Of The Bride and features a bunch of guest artists including ex-Vampire Weekender Rostam Batmanglij. Early single suggest all the jokes people tell about the band will continue to have legs.

The Head and The Heart
Living Mirage

American indie-folksters The Head and The Heart return with their fourth studio album. Recorded in legendary locations connected with the Great American Songbook, including the Joshua Tree National Park and studios in Nashville and L.A., Living Mirage is a series of “vignettes” of ennui and redemption, according to lead singer Jon Russell.

NOIA
Crisàlida EP

Film score composer, Gisela Fulla-Silvestre, also makes slightly off-kilter electronic pop music under the name NOIA. Her pop output is informed by her day job. The Barcelona native also manages to cram Tropicalia, dancehall and R&B influences into her dramatic music. Crisàlida EP is her latest offering. 12” on Cascine.

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.

Frenship
Vacation

LA pop duo Frenship double-down on the success of singles such as 'Capsize' and prepare to take the world by storm with their debut album, Vacation. The pair have been working together for six years, so they have really honed their craft. Vacation includes guest performances from Bastille and Yoke Lore. On Counter Records.

Beauty Sleep
Be Kind

Beauty Sleep are a trio from Belfast who play ‘80s influenced synth pop, or dream pop as it tends to be called these days. They love what they do and it shines through in their positive pop. Be Kind is their debut album and follows on from a couple of successful singles, 'Until We See The Sun' and 'All In'. On Quiet Arch.

Clinic
Wheeltappers and Shunters

I didn’t think Clinic were ever coming back, fortunately they have. Wheeltappers and Shunters is the Liverpool band’s eighth album but first for seven years. The title is taken from a 1970s variety show hosted by Bernard Manning - but don’t worry, it’s an inside joke, they’re not a bunch of ignorant bigots. On Domino.

Beach Fossils
What A Pleasure

What A Pleasure by Brooklyn indie rock band, Beach Fossils, is their second release and follow-up to their impressive 2010 self-titled debut album. This time out, front man Dustin Payseur wrote the songs with the help of bassist John Peña. It also features a guest appearance from Wild Nothing’s Jack Tatum.

Snapped Ankles
Violations

A four-track EP of cover versions originally released for Record Store Day in 2018, Violations is quite an apt name for these drastically different takes as Snapped Ankles take on Can, The Fugs, Joey Beltram and The Comateens in ways you never previously imagined. This re-issue is on white vinyl, with a download code. 

Maps
Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss.

At no point does the press release tell us that Maps is James Chapman’s stage name. It would be great if he’d been born Maps. He’d have to face school bullies saying stuff like, “Hey Maps, give us yer dinner money”. Anyway, the Northampton-born producer and musician has been doing this for 13 years now. Colours. Reflect. Time. Loss. is his fourth album and first for six years. The album took three years to make and sees Maps pushing the limits of his studio and his creativity. He even plays the violin on it. White vinyl LP and CD on Mute.

Tor Lundvall
A Strangeness In Motion: Early Pop Recordings 1989-1999

Ambient musician Tor Lundvall is prolific as anyone. If you need proof consider A Strangeness in Motion, a collection of some of the more poppy tracks in his early work recorded between 1989 and 1999. These tracks bring to mind the likes of New Order and The Human League without ever losing the deftness of texture Lundvall is known for.

HÆLOS
Any Random Kindness

HÆLOS return with their follow up to 2016 debut Full Circle. Any Random Kindness, like their first album, has a distinctly trip-hop vibe. Lyrically it looks for solutions in a world divided by ostensibly incompatible views. It was produced by Orlando Leopard in East London. Transparent vinyl 2LP and CD on Infectious.

Charly Bliss
Young Enough

Brooklyn four-piece, Charly Bliss, seem to have polished their act a little since their mid-fi debut, Guppy. It was a record that recalled ‘90s Boston band Letters To Cleo but with analogue electronics. On new long-player Young Enough, the melodies are similar but the sound is more polished. LP and CD on Lucky Number.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Rosie Lowe
YU

Second studio album from British star Rosie Lowe, who almost perfectly defines the distinctly squidgy term ‘indietronica’. YU, arriving three years after her debut Control, sees her back with producer Dave Okumu and calling in favours from all manner of collaborators from electronica to jazz - Floating Points and The Comet Is Coming’s Shabaka Hutchings, to name just a couple.

Olivia Neutron-John
Olivia Neutron-John

Olivia Neutron-John - and what a name that is - finally drops a new LP. Coming a full five years after the lo-fi extravaganzas of INJURY TRAIN AND I'M NEVER GETTING OFF IT b/w VULNERABILITY, this eponymous record is another set of voyages in electronic post-punk and minimal synth. There’s a bit of a psychedelic flavour to tracks like ‘March’ too. Olivia Neutron-John is out via Sister Polygon (Priests, Downtown Boys).

Kitty Kat Fan Club
Dreamy Little You

Cute story. Former Skankin' Pickle guy Mike Park missed hanging out with a band who all lived in the same place so he put together Kitty Kat Fan Club to play indie-pop and hag out. What could be better? The music sounds pretty sweet too, indie/twee pop with nods to Belle & Sebastien, the Pastels, Alvvays etc.    
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Von Spar
Under Pressure

Groovy neo-krautrock constellation Von Spar emerge from their Dumbo Studio in Cologne with the likes of Christopher “Marker Starling” Cummings, Stereolab’s Lætitia Sadier, Vivien Goldman of The Flying Lizards, R. Stevie Moore and Eiko Ishibashi. The vibe of Under Pressure can perhaps best be summed up by the lyric “Should I be worried?”
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Oliver Cherer
I Feel Nothing Most Days

Londoner Oliver Cherer is prolific. For the last few years he’s clocked up more than an album a year, either under his own name or as Dollboy or Gilroy Mere. The songs on his latest album, I Feel Nothing Most Days, date back to 1983, and were inspired by Ben Watt, Robert Wyatt and The Durutti Column. The discovery the songs on some old cassettes coupled with the fact that he found himself in possession of one of Vini Rielly’s guitars motivated him to finish the songs. LP on Second Language.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Automelodi
Mirages Au Futur Verre-Brise

Montreal duo Automelodi on what is their third album already. In part, Mirages Au Futur Verre-Brise sounds like a nostalgia trip to 80s new wave and post punk created entirely on digital instruments. Luckily, the duo has also created plenty of more alternative electronic compositions which keep their newest effort interesting. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Claude Fontaine
Claude Fontaine

Claude Fontaine - a woman who sounds like her parents used a ‘French names’ bot to generate her birth certificate - clearly loves Jamaican music. She seems to be particularly partial to the golden-age rocksteady, ska and reggae of early Trojan and Studio One. In fact, she’s so enthralled with the scene that she’s made sure her eponymous debut LP sounds like it was cut several decades ago. Over saturated riddims Fontaine coos in a breathy voice that recalls Jane Birkin. All of this makes for an extremely chic listen.

Ioanna Gika
Thalassa

IO Echo’s Ioanna Gika drops her debut solo LP via Sargent House (Dylan Carson, Chelsea Wolfe). Thalassa is a record of forceful and stirring art-pop that nods to Perfume Genius, Oneohtrix Point Never and Robyn. Gika’s voice, at once both piercing and breathy, dovetails excellently with Thalassa’s broiling synth-pop instrumentals.

The Pearlfishers
The Strange Underworld Of The Tall Poppies

The Pearlfishers - as we stated in our review of their recent Love & Other Hopeless Things LP  - are possibly Scotland's best kept secret. Their songwriting recalls 60s greats such as Brian Wilson and the Byrds but it seems barely anyone has heard of them.  Here is a re-issue of their debut LP originally slated for RSD15. Not sure why we have copies suddenly appear but here they are  - and we should all be grateful.

Art Of Noise
In No Sense? Nonsense!

In No Sense? Nonsense! by Art Of Noise was the band's third album and released in 1987. By this time the band were a duo of Anne Dudley, the only constant member, and J.J. Jeczalik with Paul Morley, Trevor Horn and Gary Langan having left. The band were influential on the world of electronic music. 'Ransom In The Sand'  was sampled by Leftfield on the track 'Melt' from Leftism. On Music On Vinyl.

Crazy P
Age Of The Ego

Eighth studio album by British dance music legends Crazy P. Inspired by the febrile atmosphere of austerity, division, online narcissism and the nation’s general nervous breakdown, but determined to have a good time nonetheless, Age of the Ego shows why the collective is still in such high demand, even in the third decade of their existence.

Bombay Bicycle Club
So Long, See You Tomorrow

So Long, See You Tomorrow is the 4th album from indie heavyweights Bombay Bicycle Club. The album was produced by singer Jack Steadman in their very own studio. Includes the singles Luna and Carry Me. So Long, See You Tomorrow is available on vinyl box set with bonus 7” and songbook and vinyl LP.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

New Order
Technique

What. An. Album. This is the one where New Order took loads of drugs and went to Ibiza and came out with dance pop classic. The album is a shimmering beauty, perfectly matching their Mancunian guitar pop with the dancefloor sounds of the day. (Almost) every song is perfect. A brilliant ride start to finish. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Various
Plastic Dance 1

Andy Votel and Doug Shipton have decided to pool their collective expertise to produce a new series of Plastic Dance compilations, This, the first, is jammed to the gills with sharp and funky electro-jams and arty punk types: I am literally dancing in my chair as I write this. On Finders Keepers / Cache Cache.

Barrie
Happy To Be Here

A nocturnal and modern take on classic pop sounds, Happy To Be Here is the debut album from New York-based singer and songwriter Barrie Lindsay. Recording under her first name and backed by her four-strong band of collaborators, it was drawn together gradually over years of globetrotting and internet communication. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

ALASKALASKA
The Dots

Marathon Artists (Pond, Courtney Barnett) front the debut LP from ALASKALASKA here. The Dots is a peppy first salvo from the group, a record of perky leftfield electro-pop numbers that nods to Fever Ray, Fujiya & Miyagi and fellow south Londoners Hot Chip. Best to get a copy of The Dots and learn the words so you can be in the know come festival season.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Studio Mule
BGM

‘But I thought Studio Mule was just a label?’ we hear you cry. You’re right, but now the Japanese imprint has added an in-house band to its arsenal. On BGM label head Toshiya Kawasaki has assembled a crackpot team to help him reinterpret tracks from artists like Yellow Magic Orchestra and Burt Bacharach (though the version of Bacharach’s ‘The April Fools’ here draws more on the Yukihiro Takahashi cover) in a dreamy Balearic/City Pop style. Dip In The Pool’s Miyako Koda provides vocals on two songs.

Yazoo
You and Me Both

You And Me Both by Yazoo is the epitome of the difficult second album. Vince Clarke didn’t want to make it and Alison Moyet was struggling with the fame their debut album brought. Clarke and Moyet recorded their parts separately. Whilst is may not have the earworming hooks of Upstairs At Eric’s, singles such as Nobody’s Diary showed that the essence of Yazoo was still very much intact. It was, however, their last album. Vince Clarke formed The Assembly with Mute label boss Daniel Miller before having massive success with Erasure. Alison Moyet went on to record the hit pop albums Alf and Raindancing.

Jo Schornikow
Secret Weapon

Jo Schornikow, who's found success as the keyboard player in Phosphorescent, is back on her own with Secret Weapon. She plays a vivid and intimate country music that is rich beyond measure. The title refers to her years helping support other people's visions, but finally she has stepped out on her own. On Keeled Scales.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Stealing Sheep
Big Wows

Stealing Sheep’s first foot on the ladder was a mini tour with Field Music. Since then they’ve gone from strength to strength with their music becoming more fleshed out with every album. Their latest, Big Wows, is no exception. Bright bold pop is infused with dance floor rhythms and ethereal qualities. A bunch of different producers shaped their sound from their experiences behind the desk for the likes of Metronomy, Christine and The Queens and Years & Years. LP and CD on Heavenly.

  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Sequoyah Murray
Penalties Of Love

Penalties of Love is the debut mini-album release from the frighteningly talented instrumentalist and singer Sequoyah Murray. Consisting of four tracks and largely self-produced (with the assistance of James Ginzburg and David Corney) it shows the 22 year old to be a purveyor of mature and modern R&B. 

James Blake
Assume Form

Have you heard? Music is a secret. Release announced on the week the CD comes out with the vinyl coming 'some time in the future', you have to remember that this is a James Blake record not some kind of secret government experiment. Anyway the crybaby songster (we say that simply because it pisses him off so much) has a new record out which you can listen to and buy (maybe).    

Yazoo
Upstairs At Eric's

Upstairs At Eric’s was the debut album by pop duo, Yazoo. The band featured ex-Depeche Mode synth guy Vince Clarke and singer Alison Moyet, very much the Adele of her day. The album included the hits Only You and Don’t Go. The duo made one more album before Vince Clarke formed Erasure with Andy Bell and Alison Moyet embarked on a successful solo career. This album  was originally released in 1982. Their influence has rumbled through the world of pop ever since.

Björk
Drawing Restraint 9

This is a soundtrack Björk made for Drawing Restraint 9 a film directed by her then partner Matthew Barney. In order to gain inspiration she travelled to Japan to study ancient Japanese music. You can't ever accuse her of not putting the hours in. It also features Will Oldham singing a letter from a Japanese fisherman.

Roisin Murphy
Overpowered

Overpowered (2007) was the second album by ex-Moloko singer Roisin Murphy. Murphy set out to make a pop/disco album and she succeeded. She took influence from the pre-house sounds of D-Train, Mantronix and Gwen Guthrie, whilst being inspired by the cerebral pop of Yazoo and Eurythmics. Jimmy Douglass, Bugz In The Attic and Richard X all helped to make the album what it is.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Organisation

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark celebrate their forty year anniversary with some reissues of their earliest material. Organisation is their second album, released in 1980, and it mixes their love for Kraftwerk (obliquely referenced in the album title) and Joy Division for some splendid moody grandeur. Reissue from Universal.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Reptaliens
Vails

Reptaliens are influenced by sci-fi literature and art - their second album Valis takes its name from a Philip K. Dick novel. Their music takes its cues from the spacey weirdness of Todd Rundgren, the experimental lounge jazz of Gary Wilson and the comforting sounds of Broadcast.  After starting as a duo with no aspirations other than to please themselves, members were added and they became a band, hitting the road with STRFKR, Cults and Of Montreal. On Captured Tracks.

Lamb
The Secret of Letting Go

Manchester trip-hop/electronic duo Lamb come back into life on Cooking Vinyl. The Secret Of Letting Go is their new album. It was, weirdly, conceived as the band decided to split. The recording took them from their South Downs studio to India and Ibiza. Oh, I get it now, a new album meant a holiday! Anyway, you can get this on LP and CD.

Karen Marks
Cold Café

Former rock journalist and band manager Karen Marks had a short but effective career in the world of minimal wave. Cold Cafe is an Australian forerunner of the genre and was originally released in 1981. It was produced with collaborator, Ash Wednesday. This 5-track 12” features two previously unheard demo recordings. 

Retiree
House Or Home

After a couple of singles away from Rhythm Section Intl, Australia’s Retiree return with their debut album, House Or Home. The three-piece have honed their disparate influences to make coherent and credible ‘80s influenced pop with yearning vocals, glacial synth washes and occasional, understated guitar. LP on Rhythm Section Intl.

Prince

The Legacy label live up to their name with this amazing package of 2 CDs and a DVD which hold the last two full lengths Prince released under his symbol moniker, Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic and the remix album Rave In2 The Joy Fantastic. In addition you get a live DVD of his live incredible concert at Paisley Park.

Billie Marten
Feeding Seahorses By Hand

Ripon's finest sweet voiced folk singer returns with her second album. Isabella Sophie Tweddle  - for that is her real name - made waves with her earlier more sensibly titled album Writing of Blues and Yellows which could have easily garnered comparisons to Laura Veirs. This time she's stripped it back to a more lo-fi sound. Could be interesting.   

Bear's Den
So that you might hear me

Look, I don’t make the rules. I can’t do anything about this. It’s beyond my control - the Folkpocalypse, that is. Mumford & Sons, Frank Turner, Johnny Flynn - out of my hands. Sorry. When I tell you that So that you might hear me, the third LP from the plum-throated men known collectively as Bear’s Den, will be one of the biggest records of 2019 - well, let’s just say I’m more of an observer at this particular feast. Why is the first word of So that you might hear me capitalised but not the others? Why, if we’re then to conclude that the title is a sentence, is there no full stop at the end of it? Why is it like this now?
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Mammoth Penguins
There Is No Fight We Can’t Both Win

Indie pop and power aren’t words you usually find in the same sentence when describing a band, but when describing Mammoth Penguins you do. Sure enough, Emma Kupa’s vocals and guitar fit the indie-pop aesthetic, but the power generated by her rhythm section means that altogether they create quite a racket. There Is No Fight We Both Can't Win is their new album. LP and CD on Fika.
  • Genre(s):

Unloved
Heartbreak Instrumentals

Unloved released their second album earlier in the year to much acclaim. Now it's time for a further project from the trio, an LP of instrumental versions of tracks culled from the album. Should you be a fan of televisions Killing Eve programme then you'll know this music from the soundtrack. Hear it is all its glory  - no vocals or dialogue over the top.

Joey’s Girl / I’m Recovering From You

Beloved indie outfit The Hit Parade made a splash for Record Store Day 2019 with the release of their fourteenth single. Retaining their trademark shimmery 80s style, ‘Joey’s Girl’ imagines Johnny Ramone’s inner monologue, detailing the messy love triangle between Johnny and Joey Ramone and Joey’s girlfriend. Limited run of only 1000 so get ‘em while they’re hot.

Bella Ciao / Brigante Se Mor

Split from two of the finest Italy-adjacent gnarl-rock bands around! Madonnatron turn in a cool and bouncy number with those nice airy vocals, while Meatraffle give it some crunch and some low end. Not recommended for those who dislike having a fun time. Split double A-side 7” single released by Trashmouth Records.

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.

Jay-Jay Johanson
Kings Cross

Produced with former Cocteau Twins star Robin Guthrie, Kings Cross is the 12th album from veteran Swedish singer Jay-Jay Johanson. Unsurprisingly for an artist more than two decades into his career, it cleaves very closely to the widescreen, filtered trip-hop ambience that’s earned him a devoted cult fanbase.

Heather Woods Broderick
Invitation

Heather Woods Broderick played in Sharon Van Etten’s band. Now she’s going solo. Her new LP, Invitation, was recorded on the Oregon coast. It would seem that the huge rock formations and towering pine trees tempered by the miles of desolate beaches, and the silvering driftwood have informed the ebb and flow of this album. If you’re a fan of Sharon Van Etten, Weyes Blood, Julia Holter, Julianna Barwick or Marissa Nadler, then you should check this out. LP and CD on Western Vinyl.

The Drums
Brutalism

Now where have we heard that title before? What they lack in originality though they make up in....um.....um....ah I know... explanations for band member departures. This is their second album since founding member Jacob Graham left to 'concentrate on his puppetry' and sees Jonny Pierce draft in a drummer for the first time. The press release bleats that this is their best collection of songs yet.

Puma Blue
Only Trying 2 Tell U

Puma Blue drops his latest single via Blue Flowers (Westerman, Nilüfer Yanya), and it’s a lovely thing. ‘Only Trying 2 Tell U’ is spare, streetwise contemporary r&b that draws from contemporaries like King Krule and FKA Twigs as well the older heads of Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu. Mr. Blue has also got the best falsetto you’ll hear in 2019. One to cop before this guy goes stratospheric.
  • Genre(s):

NAKED
Youth Mode

Straight from the stables of LuckyMe’s finest, Edinburgers NAKED are releasing their debut. Supposedly, Youth Mode deals with the problems we all face on a daily basis: anonymity in crowds and the limits of online interaction, all set to dreamy melodies from guitar and vox. Meanwhile, expect cold and stark beats in contrast. Think the XX and FKA Twigs.

Nouvelle Vague
Curiosities

Nouvelle Vague are famous for making electronic versions of punk and new wave classics. Over the past 15 years, a few of those covers have remained unreleased. Curiosities gathers them all together in one place. The most interesting songs on here are The Gun Club’s Sex Beat, Richard Hell & The Voidoids’ Blank Generation and Suicide’s Ghost Rider. On Kwaidan Records.

World Brain
Peer To Peer

Remember when the internet, facilitated by the gaudy warblings of dial-up tones and the grey, aliased angles of Windows 95, was a mysterious new resource with untapped and untold possibilities? World Brain (one Lucas Ufo, also of Berlin popsperimenters Fenster) remembers, and here’s his charming take on the subject. Despite the optimistic nineties context, the style is largely eighties wave/pop/indie.

Modest Mouse
Too Many Fiestas for Reuben / Cowboy Dan

As a reminder of just how weird and wonderful the Modest Mouse universe was in its early days -- in its scratchy guitar tones, as well as in Isaac Brock's unhinged voice -- Glacial Pace and Fat Possum are reissuing their primitive classics, along with a little helping of 7" to sweeten the deal. The 7" that accompanies the reissue of 'The Lonesome Crowded West' features a take on "Cowboy Dan" taht invovles Mr. Beat Happening (aka Calvin Johnson), as well as a B-side from the record, "Too Many Fiestas for Rueben". A lovely little origin story and a must have for indie rock geeks.

Wavves
You’re Welcome

Ten tears into the Wavves project, Nathan Williams has gone from super lo-fi DIY to major-label-signed and now back to some sort of midpoint. You’re Welcome, the sixth Wavves record, is released on Williams’ own Ghostramp label, but features all the production and songwriting lessons that he’s learned along the way. Good times!

Jade Bird
Jade Bird

Jade Bird was born in 1997, which makes this particular blurbist* feel quite old. She hails from Hexham near Newcastle, but was lucky enough to record her debut EP, Something American in Upstate New York. She has now made her self-titled debut album, no doubt buoyed by the inclusion in her band of Jeff Buckley drummer Matt Johnson and Mystery Jets guitarist Will Rees and support slots with First Aid Kit and London Grammar. Legendary producer Tony Visconti has also praised her talent. LP and CD on Glassnote. *One who writes short product descriptions for Norman Records.

Kate Bush

The third of the Kate Bush Remastered in Vinyl reissue series features three of the great artist’s more recent albums: the triumphantly-returning 2005 double album Aerial, her 2011 reworkings-of-earlier-material collection Director’s Cut, and 50 Words For Snow from the same year. All presented on vinyl in a very fine box-set from Parlophone.

The Leisure Society
Arrivals & Departures

A word of warning to anyone in middle brow folk collectives. Never go out with your flautist. This is what happened to the Leisure Society's Nick Hemming and following their split he was unceremoniously turfed out of his Brighton home. This upheaval all feeds in to their fifth album which marks ten years since they debut single 'Last of the Melting Snow' which was, if you remember a quite wondrous thing.

Ten Tonnes
Ten Tonnes

Ten Tonnes - known to his ma and da as Ethan Barnett - drops his eponymous debut LP. This is a collection of well-heeled indie ditties that are likely to do good business at the festivals this summer. Assuming 2019 even gets a summer (the weather amirite?) There’s a ‘Two Doors Down’-era Mystery Jets vibe to cuts like ‘Better Than Me’ and ‘Lucy’.

The Cranberries
In The End

Ah this is sad. The Cranberries were working on a new album at the time of Dolores O'Riordan’s untimely passing but she died before they could play it to anyone. The remaining members have decided to finish up the music and release it both as a tribute to the late singer and for fans who have waited years to hear new music from the band.

Rose Elinor Dougall
A New Illusion

A sublime, distinctly English kind of pop that addresses a truly dire state of affairs. Rose Elinor Dougall’s third solo record 'A New Illusion' was written in the climate of 21st century Brexit Britain, and is unafraid in tackling the sense of perpetual unease, but looks to music as a form of defiance not escape. Relaxed and biting, this is a record that thrives in duality.

The Streets
The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living

This was the third the Streets album and the first to openly discuss the 'pressures' of fame. It was later described by Mike Skinner as a "guilt ridden indulgence" but is an interesting document of an artist trying to hold it together whilst slowly losing their mind. First re-pressing since the giddy year of 2006 and now comes on not one but two heavyweight discs.  

The Japanese House
Good At Falling

Got a few ‘Japanese’ bands knocking around at the moment, haven’t we. Not as in bands from Japan, as in bands called things like Japanese Breakfast and The Japanese House. The latter is the solo project of Amber Bain, who has released this here debut LP on Dirty Hit - a label set up by, among others, the late Ugo Ehiogu. Good At Falling is a collection of synth-ified indie-pop tunes in the vein of mid-period Bon Iver.

Alex Cameron
Live In San Francisco

Alex Cameron is … real? Fake? Who knows at this point. What we can say for certain is that the heartland rock Dean Blunt has released a live LP. Live In San Francisco proves Cameron to be an oddly compelling performer, holding court like a mid-period Nick Cave between bouts of budget-Springsteen. Live In San Francisco is the second record we’ve got in recently with that title - the other one’s by Wooden Shjips. Choose wisely.

Rhye
Blood Remixed

The minimalist and moody perspective on R&B offered by Mike Milosh’s Rhye is opened up to fans of more genres with this 14-track remix album of the project’s 2018 sophomore record Blood. Remixers include Moon Boots, Little Dragon, Jacques Green, Mano Le Tough, Washed Out and Mansionair.

Lowly
Hifalutin

Hifalutin is the second album from Denmark's Lowly. After their debut the band wanted more and so with the help of a large warehouse and huge amount of microphones have created an album as dreamy as anything fellow Scandinavians Sigur Ros have done. But there's more to them than being dreamy, as they tackle R&B, spoken word and the more abstract musics too. On Bella Union.

Ela Orleans
Movies For Ears

Poland-born, Glasgow-based musician Ela Orleans gets a retrospective release on Night School (Julia Holter, The Space Lady). Orleans has always used the phrase ‘movies for ears’ as something between a motto and a tagline, so when it came to naming this album there really was only ever one title in the running. The artist’s lo-fi take on everything from 60’s girl-group to Lynchian dream-pop is an idiosyncratic joy. File Movies For Ears next to Richard Youngs and fellow Night School graduate Molly Nilsson.

Cassia
Replica

Debut album from potent what-if experiment Cassia. Because what if Vampire Weekend were from Macclesfield? Well I expect it would sound like Replica, the band's self-described calypso-rock seems to be bred from similar influences to those preppy New Yorkers. Odds on that they quite like Graceland. Lead singer even looks a bit like Ezra Koenig if you squint. On Distiller.

Local Natives
Violet Street

Local Natives tend to average an LP every three years, so given that their last full-length came out in 2016 it’s about time they dropped their fourth album. And lo, here have we Violet Street. Violet Street is pretty standard fare from the Silver Lake group, all anthemic indie tunes and soaring vocals. Tame Impala, Foals and that.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Kate Bush
50 Words for Snow

50 Words for Snow is the tenth album for Kate Bush, coming five years after her last studio album, Aerial. The title comes from the belief that Eskimos have 50 words for snow. The album features a number of guest artists including Andy Fairweather-Low, Danny Thompson, Elton John and Stephen Fry, who recites 50 words for snow on the title track.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Lafawndah
ANCESTOR BOY

It's the debut release from Lafawndah on her own label, Concordia. Ancestor Boy is a concept album of sorts that sees Lafawndah delve the depths of a fabricated history where she discovers and muses over an imaginary people who relate to her own coming-of-age tales, woven beautifully through this excellent debut.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Jakuzi
Hata Payı

Synthpop from Istanbul. Jakuzi are a band who obviously love those glorious shiny eighties days where synthpop was king, but they keep things appropriately Turkish also. Hata Payı, their second album, is darker than the first, which is usually a good thing when we are talking about synthpop. Released by City Slang.

Lawrence Arabia
Lawrence Arabia's Singles Club

A Kickstarted album if there ever was one, Lawrence Arabia’s Singles Club was a fan-financed project to release a digital single for every month of 2018. Lawrence Arabia succeeded, writing and recording 12 songs, released now as an album. Each one showcases the wide range of his style, from orchestral indie-rock to laid-back melancholy songlets.

C Duncan
Health

Blinking heck he doesn't mess about. This is C. Duncan's third album since 2015. I described his previous record The Midnight Sun as 'a bit rushed' but this one uses outside producers, musicians  and studios for the first time so you'd presume the sound has ben expanded somewhat. His first LP Architect was a stone cold classic so here's hoping this is more of the same (but bigger/better of course).

Honey 2 Honey
A Taste Of

A Taste Of two cities? Since their last album Honey 2 Honey are now a cross country quartet with two members each in Canberra and Sydney. Despite that, they're still mining that same dubby R&B vein that they've done in the past. And it's still as intense and strange and intimate. Most of all, it shows a masterful use of space.

The Proper Ornaments
6 Lenins

The Proper Ornaments are now on album number three: 6 Lenins. The band are led by James Hoare, who also happens to be in Veronica Falls and Ultimate Painting and Max Clapps of London shoegazers Toy. They take ‘60s American jangle and turn it into a very English jangle. They’re pretty good at it too. LP and CD on Tapete.

Akiko Yano
Japanese Girl

Reissue of Akiko Yano's debut album Japanese Girl from WEWANTSOUNDS. First released in 1976, Japanese Girl mixes together elements of Japanese folk music with 70s rock and funk to create something hypnotic. Yano's vocals dance around the instrumentation with a sense of joy and yearning, providing an emotional anchor for the album.

TR/ST
The Destroyer - 1

TR/ST (that’s pronounced Trust, by the way) drops his first LP in a half-decade. The Destroyer - 1 is another LP of dark, evocative synth-pop from the Canadian singer-songwriter. Tracks like ‘Gone’ bring to mind Perfume Genius if he was really into Depeche Mode. If you like walking around at night in trench coats then TR/ST's The Destroyer - 1 is for you.

Ikonika
Into U (Kaka Bootleg)

Anyone who’s put on an Ikonika mix over the past few months will have clocked the producer’s flip of ‘Into U’, a track by an extremely famous pop singer who shall remain unnamed. This ‘Kaka Bootleg’, which is the first Night Slugs drop of 2019, presents Ikonika’s version as both an instrumental and a vocal version. Both editions are the sort of sleek, shiny futuro-club jams on which the Night Slugs empire has been built. Any relation the ‘Kaka Bootleg’ has to the former Real Madrid and A.C. Milan player are purely coincidental.

Sparkling
Felonious

Danish duo Sparkling present their sophomore LP a full fifteen years after the release of debut album Waiting For An Accident. Felonious is a record of bright, shiny electro-indie in the M83 mode. Some of the tones here also stray closer to the kind of warm electronica Apparat has been trying out of late. Vinyl copies of Felonious are on a rather limited run, so move fast.

Talk Talk
The Colour Of Spring

The Colour of Spring was the transition album between the old Talk Talk (sort of like a literate Duran Duran) and the new Talk Talk (jazz inflected post rock innovators). The Colour of Spring had elements of both containing chart-ready hits ('Life Is What You Make It', 'Living In Another World') but being much more organic in nature and innovative than their synth driven early work. Absolutely essential.
