Richard Swift
The Atlantic Ocean

Poor Richard Swift. The singer and producer was a talented but troubled sort. As a producer he collaborated with all sorts of indie luminaries but he may end up best remembered for his ambitious sprawl of solo LPs. The Atlantic Ocean was his 2009 album -  a mixture of soul and pop where his ambitious arrangements hid darkly humorous lyrics about the music industry and hipster culture.

Alasdair Roberts
Spoils

Before Alasdair Roberts was...well Alasdair Roberts, he was in a great little band called Appendix Out. On his fifth solo album Spoils he reunited with members of that band and was joined by other Glasgow luminaries such as Alex Neilson on what Pitchfork called 'the album of his career'. Once again the Scottish songwriter pens new songs that sound and smell like ancient traditional folk songs only here they are given a fuller flavour with all kinds of instrumentation added.

Bonnie Prince Billy
I See A Darkness

Kentucky singer songwriter Will Oldham had been trading under the name Palace for his first few releases but changed tack inexplicably to Bonnie Prince Billy for his sixth album 'I See A Darkness'. It showcased a more melodic approach than the stark, naked songs of before but still was full of Oldham's poetic wordplay and quivering voice.

Robert Wyatt
Theatre Royal Drury Lane

Does what it says on the tin I suppose in that this is a live recording of the legendary Robert Wyatt Live in concert in 1974. He'd just released Rock Bottom and his star was somewhat in the ascendancy so was here joined by 'friends' such as Mike Oldfield and Nick Mason (Pink Floyd) to help realise his singular brand of prog-pop.

Robert Wyatt
Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard

Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard was Robert Wyatt's third solo album and in complete contrast to the previous all self penned Rock Bottom features interpretations of music from other musicians. It is split into two sides Ruth and Richard (naturally) and features some of Wyatt's most playful work. It wasn't particularly well received though and it would be another ten years until Wyatt released another studio album.

Tom Waits
Real Gone

Tom Waits' 15th studio album 'Real Gone' is packed full of gritty blues rock, off-kilter funk rhythms, and some of the most experimental songwriting of his long and varied career. For the first time in his career, Waits took an active decision to use no piano instrumentation, cutting out a lot of the blues and jazz he was known for and replacing it with a sound akin to experimental rock. Give 'Make It Rain' a spin for a good idea of what to expect on this abstract classic.

Micah P. Hinson
And The Red Empire Orchestra

'And The Red Empire Orchestra' is the fourth record from the horror-flick country savant Micah P Hinson, who spends his time detailing gruesomely personal stories with titles like "Dyin' Alone" -- sparing none of the Texan slur that makes them feel all the more lonesome. The record continued to prove Hinson to be the possessor of one of the best baritones in the game.

Mark Hollis
Mark Hollis

Following the sad passing of Mark Hollis earlier this year we all collectively turned back towards the impressive career arc of his band Talk Talk. Referenced less was his self-titled solo album released in 1998. It didn't help that the record was out of print at the time, but this re-issue is a chance to wallow again in the intimate grooves of a record that was initially intended to be released under the Talk Talk moniker. It is a gorgeous thing, full of woodwind, jazz-inflected drumming, pastoral guitar and Hollis's fascinating, mumbling verse. So quiet that you can hear the squeak of the musicians' chairs. Essential.

Magnolia Electric Co
Fading Trails

I guess around the time of their second album Fading Trails we had no idea that there wouldn't be too many further Jason Molina and Magnolia Electric Co records to enjoy. The singer passed in 2013 leaving a sprawling back catalogue behind him under a shower of different names. This one further explores the rockier and more blues orientated sound the group began to explore but contains Molina's usual sad-eyed song craft and bewitching tenor voice.

Adele
19

Reading the original press release for the debut from now bigger-than-the-Earth-itself singer Adele, it's surprising to learn that amongst her influences are Bjork, Jeff Buckley and the Cure. Nice try from XL to create an underground buzz around an artist whose fanbase ended up more Whitney Houston than Whitney the band. These mature-beyond-her-years (over) emotive weepers set her on a course for mainstream success with her forthcoming 21 and 25 records. A titling process that will surely have worn off before she makes her 47 album.

Robert Wyatt
Rock Bottom

The second solo album from former Soft Machine drummer Robert Wyatt and originally released in 1974, Rock Bottom has always been a painfully disconcerting listen. Written in hospital while recovering from an accident that has confined him to a wheelchair ever since, its abstract and often disturbed sketches are nevertheless shot through with hope.

Neutral Milk Hotel
On Avery Island

Jeff Mangum's band of rainy-day folk weirdos have another record that isn't 'In The Aeroplane Over The Sea', by the way. The proudly lo-fi 'On Avery Island' was Neutral Milk Hotel's debut record, full of similarly creepy and endearing love songs, as well as ten minute noise experiments. This is an old times indie rock record that is secretly quite essential.
