The Wedding Present
Bizarro

The ever-prolific pioneers of UK indie, The Wedding Present, are embarking on an extensive reissue campaign, releasing five albums, two compilations and an EP from the band’s ‘80s and 90’s output, all of which are expanded multi-disc sets crammed with bonus material, extensive sleeve notes, artwork and general Weddos emphemera. Most synonymous for their familiar depiction of relationships using acerbic wit, frontman David Gedge is a virtuoso when it comes to the bittersweet love song. Originally released in 1989, ‘Bizarro’ is the second LP released by The Wedding Present and the first to be released on a major label. Usually, this would hint towards a band on the cusp of selling out, but instead, ‘Bizarro’ sees The Wedding Present hone their craft and toughen their formula as opposed to giving in to convention. The result was a career-defining record made up of fluctuating tempos and moods, establishing the band’s quintessential euphoric take on pop.

Foo Fighters
Medicine at Night

A quarter of a century into their glittering career, Foo Fighters show no signs of letting up. ‘Medicine At Night’, their tenth studio album, packs nine powerful tracks into an economical thirty-seven minutes. Dave Grohl describes the album as boasting “amplified grooves”, which is the bare minimum you'd expect from a Foo Fighters album really...

Grizzly Bear
Painted Ruins

Grizzly Bear have been away for about five years now and have now returned with their first since the wild and windy ‘Shields’. Early tasters of their new material give the impression that they are heading in a well constructed synth pop direction with their unique take on harmony and melody intact. Bound to be much anticipated. 

D'Angelo and The Vanguard
Black Messiah

Returning after an almost fourteen year absence, D’Angelo finally follows up his influential ‘Voodoo’. This is a politicised record of soul, funk and hip-hop hybrids, of daring lyrics combining eroticism and state-of-the-nation pleas and of warm R&B backing from his long-term band. The pieces on this vinyl double LP are so confident and natural it’s difficult to imagine he’s been gone at all.

Nothing But Thieves
Moral Panic

Moral Panic is the third album by Southend rock band Nothing But Thieves. The two singles from the album, Real Love Song and Is Everybody Going Crazy? have been getting some serious airplay on Radio 1. The album was produced by Mike Crossey who has helmed albums by Arctic Monkeys, Wolf Alice and The 1975, a man who knows how to make hit albums. On RCA.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Bandana

Been a long wait for this one. Anyone who’s had even a passing interest in hip-hop throughout the 2010’s knows that Pinata, the 2014 collaboration between Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, is one of the strongest rap full-lengths of the decade. The pair repeat the trick on Bandana, an LP five years in the making. Though the weight of anticipation must have been heavy for this one Gibbs and 'lib are as steely-eyed as ever - Gibbs spits iron-wool bars over Madlib’s beat odysseys. Masterpiece, obviously. Pusha T, Killer Mike and Yasiin Bey are among the guests.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Bandana Beats

As the second collaborative album by US rapper Freddie Gibbs and dexterous record producer Madlib, 'Bandana' was a monumental hit in 2019. So much so that the pair now prepare to release the LP, an instrumental version of the record named 'Bandana Beats'. Kick back and enjoy the unvarnished and dazzling soundscapes and beats.

Kaytranada
Bubba

Bubba is the second album by Canadian DJ and producer Kaytranada which was released digitally at the end of 2019. The album was universally acclaimed with its consistency being compared to its predecessor 99.9%. It features a number of guest appearances including Kali Uchis, Pharrell Williams, GoldLink and Estelle.

Solange
When I Get Home

Earning rave reviews upon its surprise release back in January, Solange’s second studio album When I Get Home at last gets a proper vinyl edition, arriving on a special clear LP. Including insightful highlights like ‘Almeda’, Solange can now surely do no more to shake off the insulting tag of merely being Beyonce’s sister. 

The Strokes
The New Abnormal

When it was announced that The Strokes would be releasing their first new LP since 2013’s ‘Comedown Machine’ the news was shared around the internet at almost the same pace as Jennifer Aniston’s 'Friends' reunion snap. Amid all the excitement, there was also apprehension about what a new record from this notoriously inconsistent group would bring. Fortunately, ‘The New Abnormal’ represents arguably the best blend of The Strokes' dilettantish indie style and Julian Casablancas’ art-rock tendencies in their post-‘Room On Fire’ discography.

Tool
Fear Inoculum

Arracka-tung-tung-tackka-nnka-nnka! Arrucky-tickan-tickan-tung… oh wait, sorry, we got our Korn and our Tool mixed up again. Thing is, you see, Tool have been away for so long now that we’d assumed them consigned to history - it’s now thirteen years since they released '10,000' Days, you know. Good to have them back though, especially when the band appear to have used their time away productively. Fifth studio album Fear Inoculum is another set of baroque, stadium-sized prog-metal from The Thinking Man’s Primus. 

Jeff Lynne’s ELO
From Out of Nowhere

Following their terrific success on their reunion shows, Jeff Lynne delivers another blow in the soul for ELO with a second new studio album, From Out of Nowhere, released under the name Jeff Lynne’s ELO. Consisting of ten brand new tracks that see the Seventies icon still in the mood to explore new musical paths, the new record is released on standard and deluxe CD and vinyl versions. 

Laura Mvula
The Dreaming Room

The Dreaming Room is the second album by Birmingham-born soul, gospel and R&B singer/songwriter Laura Mvula. It is the follow-up to her impressive 2013 debut Sing To The Moon. The Dreaming Room features guest performances from Nile Rodgers and Wretch 32.Includes the singles Overcome and Phenomenal Woman.

Big Boi
Boomiverse

Big Boi of Outkast fame brings his third full length solo album, and first in 5 years via RCA. On Boomiverse collaboration is key, and features works with Adam Levine, Killer Mike, Snoop Dogg, Gucci Mane, Kurupt, Eric Bellinger, Sleepy Brown and CeeLo. Available on CD or coloured double vinyl with download.

Everything Everything
Arc

Arc was the second full length record from Manchester art-rockers Everything Everything. It distilled their none-more-complex song structures into something a little more streamlined than debut Man Alive leading to a much more listenable album that was easier for fans to get their claws into. An important stop on their journey which has yielded two Top 5 albums (including this one). 

Sundara Karma
Ulfilas' Alphabet

Reading hipsters Sundara Karma attempt to transition from buzz band to in-it-for-the-long-haul band with sophomore LP Ulfilas’ Alphabet. The nuts and bolts of this shift are that they’ve done a Tame Impala and beefed up their arena-indie sound with some disco and that. Single ‘One Last Night On This Earth’ sounds a bit like ‘I Was Made For Loving You’ by Kiss.

The Voidz
Virtue

Ed Sheeran don't read this. Ariel Pink... hello. Nemesis of mainstream music and also RCA signing Julian Casablancas releases his latest treatise on whether or not Jimi Hendrix was famous. Having dovetailed from a world of good garage rock into one of bad, unfounded opinions, he releases his second record under the Voidz alias.

Everything Everything
A Fever Dream

Manchester-based jittery popsters Everything Everything return with their fourth album and the follow up to 2015's ‘Get to Heaven’. Expect more polished but whip-smart electronic pop that somehow manages to be structurally interesting and playlist and dancefloor ready. Teaser track 'Can't Do' certainly bodes well. 

David Bowie
Who Can I Be Now? [1974 - 1976]

Who remembers David Bowie? Well in 1974 Bowie went to America and recorded a heap of albums including 'Diamond Dogs', 'Young Americans', 'Station To Station'. Well, they've all been collected here with a separate album full of all the singles and B sides from the era and 'The Gouster', previously unreleased as a concept album.

Ghostbusters (2016): Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

The big new Ghostbusters remake has a big new soundtrack, with exclusive material from an impressive array of popsters: Mark Ronson, 5 Seconds of Summer and Wolf Alice are among them. Plus 2 fresh collaborations, one of them between Passion Pit and A$AP Ferg and the other a version of the classic main theme by Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott! Wow. She ain’t afraid of no ghost.

Amber Run
5AM

The debut LP from Amber Run is finally out. Produced by Mike Crossey (Foals, Arctic Monkeys) you can rest assured it’s going to be an extremely catchy cut of Britrock. 5AM has everything you love about music - danceable drum beats, cozy vocal harmonies and intricate intertwined guitars, all working together towards bombastic explosions.

Foo Fighters
Sonic Highways

This year, Dave Grohl was commissioned to travel over the States and document different recording studios, investigating their own distinct sounds and personalities. HBO then turned the footage into 'Sonic Highways', following the band as they made their eighth, probably rawking, certainly growled and definitely guitar-slidin' record. This here is that record, which serves as a snapshot of American studios and their subtle differences. Nice promotional campaign, you guys.
