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...view item »


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&...view item »


Michael Kiwanuka
Bones

Michael Kiwanuka is one of those rare instances of a musician who has been heavily hyped, Jools Holland appearance under his belt before he’s even had a single out but certainly has something about him. His music harks back to the 1970s gen...view item »


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 ...view item »


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 ...view item »

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 res...view item »


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...view item »


Twin Peaks
Down In Heaven

If you’re going to borrow that name, you’ve got to live up to it. Thankfully Chicago garage rockers Twin Peaks do a decent job. On Down in Heaven their sound is less scuzzy and more indebted to 1960s pop like the Mamas and Papas. Groovy and dense guitars keep the pace over b...view item »

Bear's Den
Agape

Banjo - check. Vocal harmonies - check. Beards - check. Bear’s Den’s got it all, and chuck it together to make the ultimate folk-pop rock. Agape is their latest 10”, featuring their newest single as well as a cover of Sam Smith’s Stay With Me. Get this vinyl treat, put on your woollen ca...view item »

Catfish and The Bottlemen
Kathleen

There’s some songs that are so good you just have to have them on a separate 7” single, or even two - one for one when the first one has been played too much. Whether Kathleen by Catfish and the Bottlemen is one of those is really up to you, but rest assured that it is possible. Limited Record Store Day edit...view item »

Bear's Den
Islands

Authentic folkies Bear's Den continue their acoustic-fuelled ascension to heaven, one sparse and delicate record at a time. The trio makes an ornate but simple sound through guitars, more guitars and some soft percussion. Their newest work and their debut record, 'Islands' is coming out through Communion Records ...view item »

Twin Peaks
Wild Onion

Chicago garage rock smirkers Twin Peaks are releasing their second record, 'Wild Onion', as the follow-up to their brighter, short 'n' sweet debut. This time about, they make a sprawling, more free-wheeling record trading screeching guitars with sad boys indie pop endlessly. A recommended listen for fans of Thee Oh Sees and other garage thrill-s...view item »


Bear's Den
Above The Clouds Of Pompeii

Bear's Den make that kind of soft, plaintive folk rock that always floats, never reaching a dead end or hitting a flat surface. 'Above The Clouds of Pompeii' is the work of three dudes with guitars and a few percussive brushes -- plus the occasional trumpeting, because what is folk rock without horns? -- making chilled, emotive songs that are sw...view item »

Catfish and The Bottlemen
Cocoon

One of those bands that proudly calls themselves 'lads' -- like the Vaccines or something -- Catfish and the Bottlemen make quick-fire British indie rock about the things that happen day to day. Their new record, 'The Balcony', is going to be released in September, but a couple of one-sided singles have popped up beforehand. "Cocoon" is one of t...view item »

Bear's Den
Elysium

The next Mumfords? This lot are already very popular (you should hear how many people are cheering at the end the live tracks included here -  millions I’d imagine). They play folky singer songwriter stuff slap bang between David Gray and Del ...view item »

Catfish and The Bottlemen
Fallout

With a name scanning perfectly with Echo and the Bunnymen, Catfish and the Bottlemen have had the honour of winning Zane Lowe's Hottest Record In The World accolade with this standard piece of indie rock. Generally in the post Libertines strummy guitar bracket it has a shouted chorus which re...view item »

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...view item »


Tennis
Small Sound EP

A veritable modern-day Captain & Tennille, Tennis have established themselves as America’s premier husband and wife yacht-pop duo in recent years with a steady stream of silky saccharine summer vibes that seem to turn up in our office like clockwork every three or four months. Here’s a new EP and it’s not a...view item »

Foy Vance
Melrose EP

No relation to Tommy, I’d not previously heard of Foy Vance. Turns out he’s a Northern Irish singer songwriter with a very soft whispery voice. This is produced by David Holmes...view item »

  • Reduced from £11.99 - saving you £5.99


Michael Kiwanuka
I'm Getting Ready

This guy's getting a lot of positive attention at the moment and brought out a recent 10” that was quite lovely if I remember correctly. On this 7” there's a couple of short and slightly insubstantial songs that highlight his lovely voice and dreamy acoustic soul stylings. I'm ...view item »
