Maija Sofia
Bath Time

Taking the traditional, narrative-driven folk ballads of the country of her birth and filtering them through a DIY, lo-fi lens, Irish youngster Maija Sofia delivers an understated but powerful debut album. After five years of similarly top-quality singles and EPs, Bath Time is the full-length statement that Sofia has always had the potential to deliver. 

Jeremy Tuplin
Violet Waves

Recorded partly on the road with his band the Ultimate Power Assembly, English songwriter Jeremy Tuplin presents his third studio album Violet Waves. In contrast to the stripped-back The Pink Mirror, it’s a full-blooded effort inspired by television, politics and the increasingly scary state of the world around us.

Fassine
Forge

For their third studio album, London electronica outfit Fassine look at figures who live stoically at the fringes and extremes of modern British society, as well as marginalised communities. Forge is also instrumentally both heavier and more forceful than when the trio last released a full-length three years ago. 

Jemma Freeman and The Cosmic Something
Oh Really, What's That Then?

Jemma Freeman was a member of Bella Union band Landshapes before a solo project and now full band Jemma Freeman and the Cosmic Something, took over. 'Oh Really, What’s That Then?' Is their debut album following a couple of singles and EPs. Described as a power trio, their sound takes in psychedelic glam rock, folk rock and proto-metal.

Jeremy Tuplin
Pink Mirror

Jeremy Tuplin has a lovely voice. It has stability without being authoritative. It's charming without being sleazy. It's the kind of voice I would very happily listen to for the standard length of a indie rock album. Pink Mirror is an album that reminds us of the dangers of looking back too fondly and does so in Tuplin's so-called 'space-folk- style.

Kerry Devine
Away From Mountains

Now for some nice music from newcomer Kerry Devine. Away From Mountains is the singer-songwriter’s debut LP and it takes a great deal of inspiration from the atmospheres of the English Fens. Sometimes this makes for spare, beautiful folk music in the vein of Beth Orton and early John Martyn. At other points - the track ‘Work You’, for instance - it’s in more of a sort of Wuthering Heights/‘Wuthering Heights’ way.
