Divino Nino
Foam

Heavily rhythmical and soulful Latinx guitar-pop rules on Foam, the latest effort from bi-lingual Spanish/English outfit Divino Nino. Hailing from Chicago but founded on a childhood friendship from Bogota between between guitarist Camilo Medina and bassist Javier Forero, these ten tracks are masterfully observed marriages of different musical traditions.

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. 

Kevin Krauter
Changes

The excellently named Kevin Krauter gets a UK edition of his 2016 EP Changes courtesy of Winspear (The Lemon Twigs, Barrie). The HOOPS fellow’s sophomore solo release is a beautifully wistful blend of folk, hypnagogic pop, country rock and bossa nova. There are strong notes of Ariel Pink and Haruomi Hosono.

Major Murphy
Lafayette EP

A selection of bedroom recordings made by Major Murphy while they were still figuring what exactly Major Murphy was going to be. The Lafayette EP, named for the house which contained said bedroom, shows a more gentle and less assured side of the band. A fascinating document for anyone who enjoyed their debut No. 1.

Majetic
Club Dread

Justin Majetich has previously released on Winspear Records (The Lemon Twigs, The Pills) as CARE, but this LP sees him adopt a new moniker. The Majetic sound certainly alludes to club music on Club Dread, but these tracks are neither dancefloor fodder or the deconstructionism of someone like Ziur. Rather, what we have here are intersections of Perfume Genius/How To Dress Well-style queer pop and the freighted maximalism you sometimes find bolting out of the LuckyMe stable.

Barrie
Singles

Barrie are one of those cool bands from Brooklyn. Singles collects - surprise, surprise - their three singles to date. ‘Canyons’, ‘Tal Uno’ and ‘Michigan’ are all dreamy synth-pop tunes that come with a little of the halcyon r&b flavour of Blood Orange. There’s some Chvrches to ‘Tal Uno’, too. Singles is ballasted by two remixes - one by Brother Michael, one by Shura & FaltyDL.

Major Murphy
No. 1

Grand Rapids Major Murphy play crunchy jangly power pop which nods all the way back to the Beatles, Big Star and Badfinger. This ten track album joyfully re-works 70's radio rock with stinging guitars, lashings of harmony and classic songwriting that often sounds like George Harrison re-incarnated.     

Amy O
Elastic

Amy O has many years of lo-fi bedroom recording behind her, meaning that she arrives at her second ‘proper’ label-released album with serious instrumental and songwriting powers. Elastic is a highly personal blast of a record: guitar pop music with a real kick to it. Released in CD and vinyl editions by the Winspear label.
