Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard
The Non-Stop EP

Starting as a one-man bedroom recording project before blooming into a four-piece band, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard play a slacker brand of ‘70s rock. They released their debut single, Double Denim Hop in 2018 which was championed by Iggy Pop on BBC 6 Music and Huw Stephens and Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1.The Non-Stop EP actually features 10 tracks including the aforementioned Double Denim Hop and it’s follow-up Late Night City.

Dizzy
The Sun and Her Scorch

The Sun and Her Scorch is the second album by Canadian indie-pop band, Dizzy. Now, their name suggests indie pop, and they are marketed as such, but their sound here is what you could describe as expensively produced stadium indie pop. This just means that they’re not a bunch of skinny kids from the ‘80s, with messy hair, wearing jumpers etc. This is a much slicker affair but the melodies are there in abundance.

Bear's Den + Paul Frith
Fragments

Bear's Den are known for their emotional folk music that has seen them compared with the likes of Mumford and Sons but have you ever wondered what they'd sound like backed with an orchestra? Well now is your chance as award winning composer Paul Frith has taken choice selections from their back catalogue and orchestrated them up. At least 25% more rousing than the originals.

Dan Croll
Grand Plan

Inspired by his recent move to Los Angeles, Liverpudlian artist Dan Croll reveals his third studio album Grand Plan. Created in league with excellent session players and Matthew E. White on production duties around a year ago, it’s a much more songwriterly collection than his two previous indie-pop efforts.

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?

Tamino
Amir

Tamino is a half-Belgian, half-Egyptian musician who could well do very big things. He has a voice that most people would kill for and makes music akin to that of Jeff Buckley or Radiohead’s more melancholy moments. His new album is Amir and this description writer believes that he will be making many people weak at the knees. LP and CD on Communion.

Dizzy
Baby Teeth

Cutesy Canadian four-piece Dizzy release their cutesily-entitled debut LP via Communion. Baby Teeth (cute) is full of dream-pop niceness, all gently-picked guitar and glottal-stopped vocals and synth playing straight from the book of Springsteen. Sometimes Dizzy are sad, sometimes they’re happy, but they’re definitely always cute.

Dan Croll
Emerging Adulthood

Liverpool-based songwriter Dan Croll is showing no signs of slowing down, his folk-infused electronica is pushing boundaries and raising eyebrows. On this occasion, with Emerging Adulthood, Croll has formed a gorgeous follow-up to his 2014 debut Sweet Disarray. EA also features the fantastic Stealing Sheep's Rebecca Hawley.

Lucy Rose
Something's Changing

Singer songwriter Lucy Rose heads out on a new direction on this her third album. Inspired by a self funded trip to Latin America she returns with a lush album of introspective songwriting which incorporates strings, electronics and Daughter-like atmospherics but stretches her songs out into new and interesting shapes. 

Syd Arthur
Apricity

Canterbury lads Syd Arthur have been making their interesting post-psychedelic-come-Jazz with an indie accessibility since 2003. Their latest offering Apricity is more accessible than ever, verging on the edge of downright cheeky i’d say. Proggy but with a catchy vocal hook that you’ll be singing for the rest of the day.

Bear's Den
Red Earth & Pouring Rain

Bear’s Den’s latest album Red Earth & Pouring Rain was recorded in Wales, and yet the Drive-like sleeve art and the sleek sheen of the music had me convinced that this was an L.A. affair. These are big heart-pumping ballads, still in-keeping with the group’s alternative folk background but with a big load of synthesisers too. Released by Communion.

Matthew And The Atlas
Pale Sun Rose

Spacey, jaunty foot-tapper from London-based folk act Matthew and the Atlas. Forget about the tepid faux folk nonsense made stratospheric in recent years by the likes of Mumford and Sons and Noah and the Whale, Matthew and the Atlas have a genuine ageless folk feel and are a refreshing change from all that. Limited edition 7" vinyl in a pleasing rose colour.

Michael Kiwanuka
I'll Get Along

Michael Kiwanuka is the sort of honey-piped soulster that you could take home to meet your mum. The Londoner’s lush voice and butter-wouldn’t-melt demeanour has garnered him plenty of fans - he’s the Sound of 2012, don’t you know. As his debut LP Home Again continues to shift units we now get new single and album highlight ‘I’ll Get Along’, which comes backed here by new tune ‘I Don’t Know’.
