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.

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.

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.

Mini Mansions
Works Every Time EP

If you like the bass playing on The Last Shadow Puppets and Queens of The Stone Age records, you might want to try this: the bass players from both bands are part of Mini Mansions (along with Tyler Parkford), though not always playing bass here. Works Every Time follows up from several previous releases, and shows how this super-group of sorts have become a perfect fit with one another.

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?

The Big Moon
Formidable

Winding electric folk rooted tracks make up the mass of this album, combining a Frusciante-esque choppiness with the kind of ethereal weight you might associate with Warpaint. If it’s not a step too far one could even make a link with the better end of Britpop that saw Bends-era Radiohead climb into proper stardom.
  • Vinyl 7" (SHREDS3)

The Big Moon
Cupid

The Big Moon seem in for a good shout as one of the next big things in indie-pop. Cupid is a tuneful tune about imperfect romance, sung with a louche cool. Plus it manages to fit in some ‘whoo-whoo’s’ into its rather euphoric choruses. 7” single in a limited edition, released on their new label home, Fiction.

The Maccabees
The Complete Collection

Ten years and three further albums since The Maccabees debut album, Colour It In, hit the shelves comes The Complete Collection. All four albums and a host of bonus tracks in this lavishly packaged 6 LP and DVD set. The DVD titled Elephant Days features a full length film following the band as they recorded their fourth, and what turned out to be, final album, Marks To Prove It.

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.

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 B52's. 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.

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.
  • CD (PUMA8)

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.
  • Vinyl LP (DAYWAVE1)
  • CD (DAYWAVE2)

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.
  • CD (SHREDS4)

Palace
Chase The Light EP

‘Chase The Light’ was rehearsed and recorded at ‘The Arch’, a creative centre in Tottenham for young artists, designers and musicians where Leo Wyndham (guitar, vocals), Rupert Turner (guitar), Will Dorey (bass), and Matt Hodges (drums) rehearse, record and sometimes sleep. Their close relationship to the space brings an intimacy to their Foals-esque riffs, broken vocals and heavy drums.

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.
  • Vinyl LP (PHANTOGRAM32)
  • CD (PHANTOGRAM31)

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. 
  • CD (PALACE8)

Ian Brown
Solarized

It always comes as a surprise that Ian Brown's solo career hasn't been the complete disaster some may have predicted after that Reading festival performance. In fact his solo LPs have done quite well. 'Solarized' was his second effort and until this day has never been available on vinyl. Thankfully this has all been sorted out and you can get your hands on a vinyl edition this Record Store Day.   

Kate Boy
One

Kate Boy are an Australian/Swedish duo made up from Kate Akhurst (Kate) and Markus Dextegen (Boy). One was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, which the duo claim to be the Capital of Pop. The songs are catchy and the choruses even catchier with lyrics, like the album’s title, suggesting that self-empowerment can unify everyone together to make a powerful force.

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.
  • CD (LVR3790402)

Spector
Moth Boys

Moth Boys is the second album from London indie-poppers Spector. Big tunes made with a guitar band set-up, with slight synth additions. Dev Hynes of Blood Orange had a hand in the production. Available on the Fiction label as either CD, LP, or an extra-special white LP packaged up with a bonus 7" of exclusive material.

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. 
  • CD (3795673)

Nick Mulvey
First Mind

First Mind is Nick Mulvey’s first album as a solo artist after leaving acclaimed jazz outfit Portico Quartet. The album was produced by Dan Carey in South London. Nick Mulvey’s music had been making tremors all over the place leading up to the release of his album, so much so that he ended up on the BBC Sound of 2014 shortlist. First Mind is available on vinyl LP with download code and CD.

Little Matador
Little Matador

Little Matador are the new band fronted by Snow Patrol’s Nathan Connolly. The band differ from Snow Patrol’s sound and have been grouped with the likes of Royal Blood and Band Of Skulls as being part of a burgeoning British rock scene. Their eponymous debut is available on vinyl LP and CD

The Cure
The Top

Universal continue in their valiant efforts to gradually reissue the whole hefty catalogue of The Cure to vinyl. The Top is their fifth album, first released in 1984. It’s an unusual entry in The Cure discography, recorded with an experimental attitude that took in psychedelia, Spanish guitar, Middle-Eastern sounds and even a little metal.
