Pulp
We Love Life

Pulp closed off their excellent recording career, and arguably the Britpop era as a whole, with We Love Life. It contains the singles ‘Bad Cover Version’, ‘Sunrise’ and ‘The Trees’, and it was produced by none other than Scott Walker! This Island Records reissue puts ...view item »

Björk
Debut

It's called Debut because Bjork may be an accomplished, brilliant, wise pop musician, but she is also apparently a liar (in this small, irrelevant case only). This is actually her second solo record, and it's the best place to find the trip-hop, soft dance, good time version of an artist who went on to be a lo...view item »

Alex Highton
Welcome To Happiness

The third LP from Liverpudlian singer-songwriter Alex Highton, and his first since 2014’s Nobody Knows Anything, is a nice wedge of off-kilter electro-pop ditties. Conceived alongside producer Jonathan Czerwik, Welcome To Happiness weds Highton’s touching tales to instrumentals remi...view item »

Everything Is Recorded
Close But Not Quite

Everything Is Recorded is the production project of Richard Russell, the head honcho of XL Recordings. Russell used his impressive contacts book to get a whole host of modern vocal talent (plus Warren Ellis!) into his studio to craft excellent and soulful music. The project&rsqu...view item »

Sunflower Bean
Twentytwo in Blue

Sophomore LP from New Yorkers Sunflower Bean, following up 2016’s Human Ceremony. The three-piece band return to their classic rock vibe, this time with lyrics influenced by the volatile political climate of the last couple of years. The sound of a youn...view item »

Marc Almond
Varieté

It's pretty scandalous that much of Marc Almond's work isn't out on vinyl but this is set to change with the re-issue of Variete - one of Almond's personal favourites of all his many records. Like much of Almond's work this deals with the fag end of showbusiness and incorporates tales from Almond's own life. I...view item »

Kasbo
Places We Don’t Know

Keane once talked about 'Places Only We Know' but Gothenburg based producer Carl Gasbo is more concerned with the places we don't know on this debut. The album is full of his pleasantly chilled uplifting R & B with guests galore including London electronic duo TENDER. Will sound good on the Chart Show or whatever.&...view item »

Chad Valley
Imaginary Music

For his third LP as Chad Valley, Oxford musician Hugo Manuel decided to follow his pop instincts. Ditching the collaboration-heavy approach of his previous record, Imaginary Music...view item »

Manic Street Preachers
Futurology

There is just no stopping them is there. They simply never stop. I’ve wanted them to stop since their very first single but it never ever happens. But now they are cuddly rock veterans they have the media in the palm of their hands and its been a long, long time since they wished AIDS and death on people. All forgotten now. This is...view item »

Gary War
Gaz Forth

Greg Dalton’s first LP in quite some time as Gary War is a lush, pretty varied and uplifting series of psych-indie pop belters. Unlike a lot of this sort of thing, the production isn’t obliged to sound as vintage as possible - it’s a nice balance and even a bit experimental. He’s enlisted a lot of chums f...view item »

Starchild & The New Romantic
Language

Starchild's Brandon Cook is wonderfully unashamed about his influences: Prince, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson. This impeccably produced pop record could easily be an 80s gem. It stays true to the style but carries important, topical messages of marginalisation ...view item »

The Big Moon
Formidable

Winding electric folk rooted tracks make up the mass of this album, combining a Frusciante-esque choppiness with the kind of ethereal weight you might associate with Warpaint. If it’s not a step too far one could even make a link with the better end of Britpop that saw Bends-era Radiohead climb into proper stardom....view item »

Ezra Furman
Big Fugitive Life

Ezra Furman has done a lot for our office unity in that we all hate him. However outside of these four walls he's very popular what with his squeaky songs and disregard for saxophone conventions. This is a collection of songs that seem to have all found a home here and Ezra touchingly dedicates it to all the refugees of the worl...view item »

Chris Weisman
Chaos Isn’t Single

Chris Wieseman has a unique minimalist take on the sort of singer songwriting as made by the likes of Todd Rundgren and Nilsson.  It's a stark sound that uses jazz and blues influence within Wieseman's unique sound palette. One day he'll reach paydirt a la Elliott Smith but...view item »

Garden City Movement
Apollonia

Israeli electropop trio Garden City Movement follow several EPs with a debut album proper on London curator of curators Late Night Tales’ sublabel Night Time Stories. Here we have Apollonia, spanning quite a range over eighteen tunes. Electro, boogie, R’n’B, a touch of house, exotic pentatonic samples,...view item »

Fickle Friends
You Are Someone Else

Let's face it, we are bunch of old men selling young people music that we neither like nor understand. Here's the latest lot to send us further spiralling out of business. Fickle Friends are a wildly commercial dance pop outfit that will appeal to fans of the 1975 and Chvrches. I'll occasionally hear stuff like ...view item »

Creep Show
Mr. Dynamite

Creep Show is a collaboration between John Grant and dark, electronic funksters Wrangler. Their debut album, Mr. Dynamite, is a surreal and experimental journey through the brooding underbelly of pop and funk. They throw together sounds from every imaginable analo...view item »

Essaie Pas
New Path

Montreal electronic duo Essaie Pas are back with their fifth album (their second on DFA Records) ‘New Path’, a riff on Philip K. Dick’s dystopian sci-fi novel A Scanner Darkly. Their particular brand of coldwave songwriting lends itself beautifully to the doomy subject matter at hand, the disembodied c...view item »

Holy Fuck
Bird Brains

Holy Fuck let us check in on how they are doing with this nice little four-track EP of new jams. Bird Brains shows that they’ve still got it: that knack for mashing together crunked-out dance rhythms and jagged noisy bits into an addictive whole. 10 inches of Holy vinyl, released by Innovative Lei...view item »

The Fratellis
In Your Own Sweet Time

After the release of Costello Music in 2006 and the success of that song that everyone sings….er….*consults Google*….Chelsea Dagger, I thought Scottish lad rock band The Fratellis had disappeared. It turns out I had just stopped paying attention. They have now released four successful albums, with a fifth, I...view item »

Blaenavon
Let's Pray / I Will Be The World

Let’s Pray is the second track from Blaenavon’s upcoming debut album and it certainly sounds like the real deal. Some heavy bass circling around some quiet-quiet-loud guitar and stellar vocals. It reminds me of The Maccabees or a rockier Alt-J. Backed with ...view item »

Amy Winehouse
Frank

Frank was the debut album by Amy Winehouse. She made a massive impact with this upon its release in 2003. Firstly as a major new talent had just unleashed itself on the world and secondly because her lyrics didn’t pull any punches, hence the title.The title is also a nod to one of her heroes, Frank Sinatra...view item »

Death of Lovers
The Acrobat

Death of Lover’s are a whole extra band from the guys behind Nothing, in which they write and perform songs that are a little bit different. This is actually their debut full-length album after several years of activity, and it shows a band clearly enjoying themselves playing with an eighties post-punk-pop...view item »

Once & Future Band
Brain

Oakland based four-piece Once & Future Band originally released their Brain EP in 2014. After their debut full length they are back to writing, and in the meantime they have rereleased Brain to keep your appetite for the poppiest prog you will ever hear. They bring you the 70’s with a glorious pop shi...view item »

The Monochrome Set
1979-1985: Complete Recordings

The Monochrome Set are one those largely unknown but hugely influential British bands. Their post-punk/indie-pop/art-rock sound has been an influence on the likes of The Smiths, Blur and Franz Ferdinand. The groups leader, Bid, claims that a diet of 17th century poetry and Leadb...view item »

Whyte Horses
Empty Words

Here come enigmatic Manchester psychedelicists Whyte Horses with their second album (not counting the thing they did with a children's choir). They are led by crate digger Dom Thomas who also finds time amongst digging those crates to helm Finders Keepers. Noel Gallagher described their last record as 'great' so...view item »

Ed Schrader's Music Beat

Jonathan Wilson
Rare Birds

Super-producer, maker of very long albums and friend to the stars Jonathan Wilson is back with his third full length album. Though his previous two records harked back to the Laurel Canyon scene of the late 60s, this his third full length is enamoured by 80's production of the likes of Peter Gabriel and ...view item »

Death And Vanilla
From Above

Fire Records have kindly re-issued this two track 7" from everybody's favourite post-Broadcast swirling dream-poppers Death and Vanilla. Originally released on the Great Pop Supplement it has already been re-pressed twice selling out quickly each time. Comes on blue vinyl and is re-issued alongside Death And Vanilla’s debut self-titled alb...view item »

The Style Council
The Cost Of Loving

This record sees The Style Council take on a much more refined and soul-style approach to their music writing. The 80's saw a great amount of bands try and turn what, some would argue, was a dreadful decade for pop music. Their forward thinking approach in The Cost Of Loving is a great reminder that not all 80's music w...view item »

The Style Council
Confessions Of A Pop Group

It's odd to think that there was a time when Paul Weller was a daring musician. This fourth album by his '80s group the Style Council takes in jazz, piano ballads, upbeat funk and classical. Lord knows what he was thinking but the album is more loved in hindsight than it was at the time when it flopped pretty di...view item »

Super Furry Animals
Fuzzy Logic

Super Furry Animals released their lively wild-ride album Fuzzy Logic in 1996, throwing some Welsh weirdness into the Britpop mix. This twentieth anniversary reissue includes the remastered album plus a round-up of all the contemporary B-sides. Also (for the CD edition) a second disc, containing a sackful of previously ...view item »

Meadow House
Misadventures On The Scorn Cycle

Originally sent out at random to all manner of unsuitable places, 'Misadventures on the Scorn Cycle' sees a long-awaited vinyl release for Dan Wilson's sonic experiments as Meadow House.

Sun Seeker
Georgia Dust

Sun Seeker are a Nashville group who are only now being revealed to the wider world, through the efforts of Jack White’s Third Man Records. Georgia Dust is their debut single, and marks out a rich, country-influenced americana territory. A beautiful, melancholy way to make a start. 7” vinyl ...view item »

Death And Vanilla
EP

Oh kind people at Fire Records, fresh from issuing Death and Vanilla's much loved second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' have now embarked on a re-issue programme of the bands earlier work including this now impossi-find debut EP. This was the record that first informed us that there could indeed be life after Broadcast. ...view item »

The Style Council
Our Favourite Shop

It's easy to forget how diverse Paul Weller was in his Style Council days...and how political. 'Our Favourite Shop' targets racism, self serving governments and consumerism and spawned hits such as 'Shout to the Top', 'Walls Come Tumbling Down' and the truly bizzare 'Come to Milton Keynes'. Now re-issued on heav...view item »

What So Not
Not All The Beautiful Things

Charlotte Gainsbourg
5:55

Charlotte Gainsbourg’s lounge folk sophomore album 5:55 gets the reissue treatment here on double vinyl. Wispy vocals meet with the staunch Frenchness of Air and the expansive production of Nigel Godrich to create a piece of work that sits out of step time and the weight of expectation. Out on 2LP vinyl from Becau...view item »

Raf Rundell
Stop Lying

Raf Rundell is of course one of the bears in 2 Bears (with Joe Goddard), but here he stands alone as a solo artist. Stop Lying is a direct and sincere response to both fatherhood and the current general state of the world, though it certainly inhabits the same playful groovy electronic ...view item »

Nabihah Iqbal
Weighing Of The Heart

Need to get through the dark winter months? Nabihah Iqbal is here to help you survive, with her warm and dreamy debut album on Ninja Tune.

Soccer Mommy
Clean

Soccer Mommy, aka Sophie Allison, a 20 year old from Nashville, has previously made some lovely mid-fi music that would please fans of Boston bands of the 1990s, as detailed on her recent compilation, Collection. Her proper debut album, Clean, gives her a bigger stage and bigger production values, but the songs remain true to he...view item »

The Octopus Project
Hello, Avalanche (11th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

The Octopus Project sounds like an 80s video game. It beeps and buzzes. And it uses that basic synth sound we're used to hearing out of an old TV while playing Atari. Accompanying this is modern guitars, bass, piano, drums, and a drum machine. Except for the last song there are no vocals. It makes for very unique listening. Some songs rock. Othe...view item »

Superorganism
Superorganism

Ok actual gonna-be-big record time. This hotly tipped million piece have already released two stellar singles and proved that not everything on Jools Holland is the worst music to blight humanity but now it's time to drop the big one. We are expecting multi-layered technicolour pop with nods to the Avalanches, Beck...view item »

Brighouse Britpoppers Embrace have reached the seventh album of their career, and in doing so they reckon they’ve gone back to their roots, doubling down on their instincts and their own sound. Love Is A Basic ...view item »

The Shacks

Tracey Thorn
Record

Tracey Thorn’s first album of original material in seven years, Record, sees her surrounding a 9-minute dub/disco epic centrepiece with more concise and vigorous electro-pop.

Richard Youngs
Belief

Richard Youngs started recording Belief (which really is his 140-somethingth album) by capturing field recordings and turning them into programmed beats. I say ‘field recordings’ but it seems he may not have left his house - radio interference, extractor fan, old cymbal etc. What began as an art project turned into a...view item »

Moby
Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt

Moby's etched himself quite the reputation since his techno and ambient releases of the early 90s. The trip-hop output made famous on 'Play' has become his classic sound and his new album is a welcome return to this. New single 'Like a Motherless Child' demonstrates this perfectly, a contemporary take on a historic spiritual son...view item »

In Tall Buildings
Akinetic

If you're wondering who specifically is in these ostensible tall buildings, it's Erik Hall, a nerd-of-all-trades in the sphere of songwriting. His project continues to communicate a whole lot of self-reflection and deprecation on Akinetic, a record of vices shot through a shiny musical metropolis of big, busy pop music....view item »

Gwenno
Le Kov

Gwenno Saunders’s award-winning 2015 debut Y Dydd Olaf was comprised of songs in Welsh, with one in Cornish. This follow-up is exclusively dedicated to the latter language, which is spoken fluently by the artist. The lyrics are partly based on local legends of sunken cities, which have par...view item »

David Bowie
Aladdin Sane

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. Aladdin Sane followed up Ziggy Stardust, and is hence the first Bowie record made whilst already a success. Includes ‘The Je...view item »

Pet Shop Boys
Actually

Actually was the second album by ‘80s synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys, and like it’s predecessor, Please, it’s crammed with hits. It’s A Sin, Rent, Heart and What Have I Done To Deserve This? all feature. The latter featured vocals from Dusty Springfield and began a reawaken...view item »

Pet Shop Boys
Introspective

1988’s Introspective saw Pet Shop Boys approach the album format a little differently - certainly for a pop album. Each of its six tracks were epic in length, and the ones chosen for singles had to be edited down somewhat. Their new sound was overseen by Trevor Horn, the first time he’d prod...view item »

Pet Shop Boys
Please

Pet Shop Boys made a big noise on the club scene with their debut single West End Girls, however, it was the re-recorded version that got them noticed by the record buying public. The number one hit, with lyrics inspired by hip-hop and TS Eliot, set them apart from other acts and cemented the duo as chart stars throughout the &l...view item »

Maximum Joy
I Can't Stand It Here On Quiet Nights: Singles 1981-82

Maximum Joy were a superb collective that haunted Bristol in the early '80s who combined a wide variety of influences  - hip-hop, soul, dub, jazz and Afrobeat -  to concoct a heady brew of sleek danceable pop. There's the same dub inflected atmospheres that would later be made successful by Massive Attack...view item »

Carla dal Forno
The Garden

Following on from her excellent LP of sonic gothic architecture for Blackest Ever Black, Carla dal Forno returns with a 12" of dubby introspections.

The Bluetones
Expecting To Fly

It’s been 2 full decades since the release of The Bluetones’ debut full-length, Expecting To Fly. Landing square in the middle of the 90’s, the time was right for the Tones’ melodic britpop sound, merging Stone Roses longing with Oasis attitude. ...view item »

Fever Ray
Plunge

Well I don’t know about you, but this is very exciting. Karin Dreijer has of course been busy making magic with The Knife for much of the intervening period, but it’s been absolutely years since she stepped out as her solo project Fever Ray. But now we have a whole new album, Plu...view item »

Wilma Archer
Scarecrow

Formerly known as Slime, this is the first solo work from Wilma Archer since his 2015 album 'Company'. He's been busy elsewhere though, writing for the likes of Jessie Ware,  and Jeramiah Jae but now he's back on his own with music described as daring, virtuoso and rob...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
How To Solve Our Human Problems (Parts 1-3)

Beach House

Hands up who didn't like the last Beach House album? Hmm, not many. It was an excellent affair where their brand of woozy melancholy took on unexpectedly strong melodies to create one of those career defining albums that they'll now have a problem living up to.What...view item »

IAMX
Alive In New Light

Some predictably vampy Queen-core from former Sneaker Pimps vocalist Chris Corner here. IAMX’s Alive in New Light goes for an old Gary Numan vibe and ends up with a new Gary Numan vibe. Corner throws his voice all over the place a...view item »

Mark Renner
Few Traces

Not a lot of people have heard Mark Renner’s material from between the years 1982 and 1990, but now RVNG Intl invite you to join those limited numbers. Few Traces sur...view item »

Gift Wrap
Losing Count

Brendon Avalos is another one of those artists who though why bother working with a band (in his case B Boys) when you can just do everything yourself. So he's gone down the solo path culminating in an album of experimental electronic pop which takes in influences all the way from Depeche Mode to Frank O...view item »

Totally Mild
Her

Totally Mild hail from Melbourne and are fronted by vocalist Elizabeth Mitchell. Her is the band’s second album, which follows their 2015 debut, Down Time.

Primitive Motion
House In The Wave

Piano, saxophone and a cast of comfortingly familiar atmospheric sounds blend together in this would be film soundtrack.

Holly Miranda

Liza Anne
Fine But Dying

This album contains the lyrics "maybe I'm fine, maybe I'm dying", and whether or not you can relate to that will tell you more that I'll ever be able to about whether you'll enjoy Liza Anne's debut album. Catchy and introspective indie rock for anyone who is, has been, or will be, an unmotivated 20-something year old. ...view item »

Lo Moon
Lo Moon

With an expansive and climactic soundscape dripping in nostalgia, LA based trio Lo Moon release a debut album that justifies the hype surrounding their first single ‘Loveless’. Despite a spattering of melancholic synths and piano, this LP is a decidedly hopeful ode to electro-pop. The title track ‘Real Love’ sounds like t...view item »

C Duncan
For (Autumn Rebuild)

For is already one of Glaswegian C Duncan’s most popular songs, so why should he not rebuild it for the changing seasons? For (Autumn Rework) is more bombastic, with Steve Reich-like instrumentations creating a musical backdrop. A great antidote to November's rainy gloom. Limited to 500 copies on orange v...view item »

U.S. Girls
In A Poem Unlimited

Canada-based noise-popper Meg Remy – AKA U.S. Girls – is set to release her 6th studio album on 4AD, her second for the London-based label, in February 2018, and in true Remy fashion, it's packed with personality.

The Human League
Travelogue

The second album from The Human League, the Sheffield synth-pop heroes. Travelogue was released in 1980, and is the last record to feature the full original line-up before the Heaven 17 schism. That also means that Travelogue is the last chance to hear the slightly more industrially-edged versi...view item »

Ibeyi
Ash

One of those acts who very quickly achieved ubiquity after their 2015 debut on XL, Ibeyi are here to make good on the promise of that record with another LP of emotive soultronica. As befits their elevated status, Ash includes guest spots from Kamasi Washington and Chilly Gonzal...view item »

Pete Astor
One For The Ghost

I just don't like wine but I can understand what Pete Astor is doing here. The extra glass is to mourn people and times past. I'll do the same next time I have a flapjack. Anyway 'One For the Ghost' is the latest solo LP from the former the Loft and Weather Prophets chap and here he is joined by the rhythm secti...view item »

The Orielles
Silver Dollar Moment

The Orielles are a three-piece made up of a Post Office Christmas temp, and English Lit. student and an A-Level student. Despite their tender years, the trio have made a very enjoyable indie-pop record in Silver Dollar Moment. It is reminiscent of many bands you loved in the ‘80s and ‘90s, whilst maintaining a certai...view item »

Nadine
Oh My

Oh My is the debut album by Nadine, a trio who come from Minneapolis and New York. Not to be confused with ‘90s alt country band of the same name. They are made up from members of Ava Luna and Phantom Posse. Whilst firmly holding on to their pop sensibilities, they sa...view item »

Karl Smith
Kites

The voice of Sodastream releases his first solo album. No matter how hard I try, I can recall Sodastream though they were apparently popular on the John Peel programme some time ago. Solo, he does a kind of quirky singer songwritery thing, part Go Betweens solo album territory, p...view item »

Hattie Cooke
Hattie Cooke

Brighton tape label Third Kind drop a very likeable record from singer-songwriter Hattie Cooke. Cooke works in two modes on this self-titled record. Tracks like ‘Shut Your Mouth’ and ‘Song 14’ are twee synth-pop ala early Magnetic Fields, while other entries are sparse to...view item »

Belle and Sebastian
Push Barman To Open Old Wounds

'Push Barman To Open Old Wounds' was originally released in 2005, compiling twenty five twee-as-you-like tunes from Belle and Sebatian's early singles and EPs, from 1997's 'Dog On Wheels' to 2001's 'I'm Waking Up To Us'. It includes "The State I Am In", which would later appear on their debut record 'Tigermilk', but for the most part t...view item »

Miracle
The Strife Of Love In A Dream

Here we are with more sci-fi synth heavy beat work, though this time pitting arpeggiated synths against distant chants and odd ritualistic darkness. This collaboration between Steve Moore and Daniel O'Sullivan also has ties to metallic genres, and so finds itself quite at home on the legendary Relapse Records....view item »

Django Django
Shake & Tremble

Shake & Tremble is the new single by Django Django. The London based art rockers are favourites of 6 Music’s Mark Riley. They have had huge success with their self titled debut album and their current long-player, Born Under Saturn from which Shake & Tremble is taken. ...view item »

Wild Beasts
Last Night All My Dreams Came True

Wild Beasts, who’ve been bringing perverse arty falsetto weirdness to indie rock for more than a decade, are calling it a day. As part of their farewells they present Last Night All My Dreams Came True, a ...view item »

Ariel Pink & Weyes Blood
Myths 002

Moving fairly violently between tasteful folksy acoustic songwriting and explosions of operatic intensity, this collaboration is, if nothing else, unpredictable. Rich layers of instrumentation and clashing performance styles add to the exciting uncertainty, and over the four tracks you can be sure that weird and charmed places will be reached....view item »

C.A.R.
Pinned

A full length outing from C.A.R. (Chloé Raunet) sees the twin forces of irresistible pop and electronic post punk join up. There's a distinctly continental air to the tracks, kept from full on piazza lulls by a strikingly cold skeleton. This interplay creates the magical tension on which this album's pers...view item »
