The Big Moon
Take A Piece / Your Light

Two and a half years have passed since The Big Moon breathed some new life into British indie with their Mercury-nominated 2017 debut Love In the 4th Dimension. Now, trailing their sophomore album Walking Like We Do, recorded with respected producer Ben H. Allen III and out in January, is a new 7” single - ‘Take A Piece’ backed with ‘Your Light’.

Tame Impala
Lonerism

Come on now, we know the score with this one! Lonerism, Tame Impala's second LP, has undoubtedly become a modern classic. It catapulted the Aussie group from psych stone-rockers to a global phenomenon who sell out stadiums world-wide. 'Elephant', 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards', 'Apocalypse Dreams' - need we say more?

Tame Impala
The Slow Rush

“I’m being swept by this notion of time passing,” Kevin Parker explained to the New York Times about his new Tame Impala album earlier in 2019. “There’s something really intoxicating about it.” That preoccupation is at the centre of The Slow Rush, due for release on Valentine’s Day 2020 and 11 whole months after we got the first taste of new music ‘Borderline’ earlier this year. One of the most anticipated indie releases of recent years!

Pumarosa
Devestation

London's Pumarosa follow their debut album, The Witch, with Devestation. The band have looked to electronic influences for this record, relying less on the guitar-based music of their last album. Autechre, Aphex Twin, drum ‘n’ bass and some reliable old jungle tunes have all gone into the pot to make this one.

The Big Moon
Walking Like We Do

The Big Moon made a big splash in 2017 with debut album, Love In The 4th Dimension, which contained catchy hits such as Cupid. Now they’re back with their highly anticipated sophomore album, Walking Like We Do. Their previous success shows here as they were shipped off to Atlanta to record with renowned US producer Ben Allen III. Expect big things from The Big Moon.

Tame Impala
Currents (Collectors Edition)

Like Tame Impala’s ___ album Currents? Well if you do, here’s your chance for deeper insight into the record, with a Collectors Edition boxset that adds a 12” of remixes (including one by Soulwax), a 7” and a flexidisc of B-sides, a poster and an exclusive zine to a nice red marbled vinyl edition of the original album. That makes four discs and many pages by my count: nice.

Kate Tempest
The Book of Traps and Lessons

If you believe what you read, Kate Tempest has been working on The Book of Traps and Lessons - her third album - since she unleashed her classic debut Everybody’s Down in 2014. Whether this has been five years in the making or not, we’ve still been looking forward to it. She worked on the album with none other than Rick Rubin and South London producer, Dan Carey, who also worked on her 2017 album, Let Them Eat Chaos. On Fiction.

Tame Impala
Innerspeaker

Tame Impala have proved themselves champions of psychedelic rock over the past few years, ascending to the top of the pecking order with 'Lonerism', their tightly-knit collection of fluorescent pop tunes. Their debut 'Innerspeaker' is a worthy record in its own right, deftly navigating their heavy stoner influence with serene and inviting pop hooks. 

Another Sky
Life Was Coming In Through The Blinds

London-based epic indie rockers, Another Sky, are finally releasing their two previously digitally released EPs as one LP under the title Life Was Coming In Through The Blinds, which was also the name of their second EP. This is their first physical release, with a debut album proper expected in 2020. Exciting times, people. 

Mini Mansions
Guy Walks Into A Bar…

Five years after their self-titled album surprised many a critic, sounding completely unlike what you’d expect a QOTSA side-project to sound like, Mini Mansions deliver a follow-up. Guy Walks Into A Bar… sees the Queens’ bassist Michael Shuman lead his bandmates through a history of pop and rock ‘n’ roll, interpreting it in their unique way. 

Palace
Life After

Life After is the second album by London-based alt-rock trio, Palace. It is the follow-up to their 2016 debut Long Forever. Like many albums that have been made over the years, this one deals with loss. It also, as the title may suggest, deals with picking up the pieces and moving on. A hopeful record. On Fiction.

The Amazons
Future Dust

Arriving almost exactly two years after their Top Ten debut album, Future Dust is the sophomore effort from much-hyped British garage rockers The Amazons. This time, they’ve doubled down on their retro sound and gone even heavier, influenced by the woozy blues stews of Howlin’ Wolf to the rock hurricanes of Led Zeppelin. 

Self Esteem
Compliments Please

Self Esteem is the work of one half of indie pop duo Slow Club. The Rebecca Lucy Taylor half. On Compliments Please she's dropped the indie from indie pop to make a bunch of 'pop' pop tracks. Big and catchy and quite often about sex pop. It's a very convincing change especially as her vocals are perfectly suited to this too. 

Ian Brown
The Greatest

The Best of Ian Brown. Actually not as bad as you might think as Brown has come up with the odd classic during his solo years in particular Corpses In Their Mouths and F.E.A.R. His solo work is a lot more eclectic than that of his main band the Stone Roses with reggae, dub and electronica influences infusing his baggy laid back pop. 

Nick Mulvey
Wake Up Now

Since leaving Portico Quartet, Nick Mulvey has been working solidly on his solo singer/songwriter material, releasing eight EPs and a full length, he returns to Fiction records for his second album. Bringing his soft yet direct folk into a fuller, band and electronics sound, and drawing countless world music influences into the fold.

Pumarosa
Honey

Even though very much in their infancy, London based Pumarosa show that a butt load of effort pays off when developing a sound of your own. Their third short play release plays out post-indie rock with worldly wisdom, casting off the shackles of childish wonder with fond reflection. Vinyl released on Fiction.

Pumarosa
The Witch

Some albums are born almost momentarily, hammered out over a snappy series of jams. Others are left to marinate and stew along with personal progressions; Pumerosa's debut has done the latter. Enveloping their emotional and impassioned breakthrough into the public consciousness is the fantastic debut - The Witch.

Pumarosa
Pumarosa EP

Tipped to reach dizzying heights by BBC 6 Music and The Line of Best Fit, Pumarosa's self-titled EP is a statement of intent. Especially after its opener, a nearly-8-minute-long crescendo of of gliding vocals, propulsive beats and waves of saxophone. Arcade Fire-esque indie rock at its finest.

Day Wave
The Days We Had

Day Wave is the indie outlet for Californian man Jackson Phillips, who seems to be responsible for every aspect of this recording. The Days We Had has the lush sunny haze of the best summer indie-pop, with both shoegaze and synth-pop aesthetics hiding in the mix. The album is released by Fiction on CD and gatefold LP.

The Big Moon
Love In The 4th Dimension

The Big Moon present their debut album to the world, after more than a year of high interest. Love In The 4th Dimension was recorded nice and swiftly under the supervision of Catherine Marks, and it's come out as a fine set of anthemic indie pop that’ll surely rule the airwaves come summer. Out on Fiction.

Kate Tempest
Let Them Eat Chaos

Kate Tempest's 2014 album 'Everybody Down' earned her a Mercury nomination, and that is just one accomplishment notched up by this serial high-achiever. Performing live at the age of 16 saw her securing gigs opening for John Cooper Clarke and Billy Bragg among others. Add a Ted Hughes award for her writing and a nod from the Poetry Society, and it all becomes pretty impressive. 'Let them Eat Chaos' is a long poem, written for performance. The vinyl includes download code.

Phantogram
Three

Phantogram’s new album Three finds them fully evolved into a proper alt-pop outfit with massive-sounding singles and a well-earned swaggering attitude in the vocal performances. And the choruses, oh the choruses… This one should do well. Three is released on CD and on LP via the Fiction label.

Crystal Castles
Amnesty (I)

Synthsperts Crystal Castles detail their first record in a hot minute, and their first since Alice Glass departed the band. Their gothic new wave sound gets a lil' bit of a fresh start as they close the chapter on their album trilogy with a new one that, judging by "CHAR", is just as hyperactive, seemingly marrying the coldness of their sound with fluorescent pop ideas.

Palace
So Long Forever

Really they shouldn't be allowed to be called Palace  - it's too confusing for long term Will Oldham fans. Anyway this is their debut album after a smattering of EPs and they are certainly giving it a nice long run up (just look a that release date). They play atmospheric gently lilting music with strained vocals that seems to sit in an awkward place betweens Foals, Richard Hawley and early the Smiths ballads. 

Health
Death Magic

Everyone’s favourite LA noise-rock (with a dance-pop sensibility) group HEALTH make a return to album releases, after what feels like an extremely long time. Death Magic continues the band’s harsh-but-shiny journey; from the sounds of single New Coke, things will be even more party-friendly than before. Exciting. On Fiction / Loma Vista.

Tame Impala
Currents

Having made two of the finest albums to be released in the last decade in 'Innerspeaker' and 'Lonerism',  Tame Impala are threatening to turn themselves into a pastiche of pretty much what everybody else is doing -- if early teasers from this album are to be believed. Synths have replaced guitars and production values are at times influenced solely by 'Bouncing Off the Satellites' era the B52s. Still, everyone likes the '80's so this could be the future-retro pop album that propels Kevin Parker to superstardom whilst fans of his earlier Beatlesey psych moves weep into their kaftans. Waiting for the whole thing before passing judgement could be a good option at this stage. Certainly whatever emerges will be mighty tuneful. 

The Maccabees
Marks To Prove It

Marks To Prove It is the fourth album produced by indie rock group The Maccabees, following a three year gap. All the hallmarks are still in place though, don’t worry: omnipresent guitars and choruses that are probably anthemic or something. This was available on lots of different colours of vinyl but it's just available on black now.

Death From Above 1979
The Physical World

Death From Above 1979 still exist! 'The Physical World' is the first record in ten whole years from the dance-punk elephants, and continues where they left off: a ridiculous amount of sounds are packed in by Jesse F. Keeler, who keeps songs jumping through hoops -- from no frills punk into ditties of piano and splashes of synth -- while Sebastian Grainger continues to pummel his drumkit into rubble. The first good time to be had in a decade.
