Sui Zhen
Losing, Linda

Melbourne-based musician Sui Zhen delivers her second studio album, following three years on from her compelling debut Secretly Susan. Inspired by the passing of her mother, Losing, Linda is a deeply moving album concerning loss, not just on a personal, literal level but also on a societal and environmental plane. 

NOIA
Crisàlida EP

Film score composer, Gisela Fulla-Silvestre, also makes slightly off-kilter electronic pop music under the name NOIA. Her pop output is informed by her day job. The Barcelona native also manages to cram Tropicalia, dancehall and R&B influences into her dramatic music. Crisàlida EP is her latest offering. 12” on Cascine.

Yumi Zouma
EP III

Yumi Zouma - almost certainly no relation to France and Chelsea centre-back Kurt - drop a new four-track EP via Cascine (Korallreven, Chad Valley). EP III is another one of those retro-ish, ‘80s-ish, Italo Disco-ish synth things which pass for indie music these days. Will please fans of Chairlift, Bon Iver, Wild Nothing and the rest of that rabble.

Daniel T.
Heliotrope

In a former life, a decade or so ago, Southern California native Daniel T (Terndrup) was one half of Cosmic Kids who drew upon a very wide range of musical inspirations as well as, of course, the vastness of the cosmos. Daniel has long been a crate digger and a collector armed with an impressive knowledge of all sorts of bygone music, hosting regular radio shows on both NTS and Dublab. Terndrup now turns his attention to his solo project and has developed a production style taking in a melange of influences -- funk, post-punk, new age and pop included -- filtering all these along with the SoCal sunshine into his armoury of tunes. Heliotrope is the result, a fun-times album that's sure to make both heads and bodies move. LP on Cascine records.

Half Waif
Lavender

Third album as Half Waif  from Nandi Rose Plunket. Lavender allows Plunket to show of her classically trained chops. Her voice swoops and rises in a unpredictable but controlled fashion, over everything from plaintive piano to more aggressive electronic productions. Released on Cascine.

Chad Valley
Imaginary Music

For his third LP as Chad Valley, Oxford musician Hugo Manuel decided to follow his pop instincts. Ditching the collaboration-heavy approach of his previous record, Imaginary Music sees Manuel settling comfortably into role of auteur. The resulting album is replete with heady electro-pop that recalls Prefab Sprout, electro Arcade Fire and the softer edges of Daft Punk’s Discovery. If they do another Drive movie, the likes of ‘LA In August’ and ‘Impartial’ could crop up in the soundtrack.

Brett
Mode

Mode is the second album from synth-pop four-piece Brett (also know as The Dance Party) and the synths are even lovelier and the falsetto vocals even higher. The group are obviously influenced by 1980s synthesizer textures, but they also draw on modern pop productions and sultry R&B. Available on vinyl LP from Cascine

Half Waif
Probable Depths

Half Waif (the solo project of Nandi Rose Plunkett, also spotted in the band Pinegrove), released Probable Depths in 2016, and now the Cascine label are giving it a proper vinyl pressing to let its lovely songs fully shine. The Half Waif sound places melodic dramatic songs in the middle of a swirl of pleasing electronics. Limited edition of 400 LPs.

Morly
Sleeping In My Own Bed

Ah my own bed. One of the main reasons why I can't keep a relationship together. Can't sleep in anyone else's. Oh no. Anyway here comes soft voiced crooner Morly aka Katy Morley who offers delicate and and refined soulful r&b influenced pop with hints towards Lapsley and Amy Winehouse. Polished mainstream pop but with much more soul and panache than, say, Adele. Might be big.  

Yumi Zouma
Yoncalla

Straight outta New Zealand, Yumi Zouma present their debut full-length album, following on from a handful of singles and EPs. Yoncalla is a super-sleek set of synth-pop, pulsing with a subtle, early-on-a-summer-evening kind of feeling. The kind of music to make you just swoon away from your work and go party… Released by the Cascine label.

Chad Valley
Equatorial Ultravox Addendum

Chad Valley prepares dance floor friendly electronica with keening vocals and punch the air synth motifs and here we get a vinyl re-issue of his earlier EP now with two tracks added and a remix which appeared on the zombie flick 'Warm Bodies'.  His live set is described as 'the best in the business' by the confident press release and he has supported Erasure and Foals to help back up this claim. 

Half Waif
form/a

Half Waif is the solo project of Nandi Rose Plunkett, bringing her many various influences (traditional Indian music, classical singing, Celtic music, Messiaen) together into a thrilling blend. form/a is predominantly electronic-pop in terms of textures, but the songcraft and chord structures point to those many other worlds of music. 12” EP on Cascine.

Urulu
Air Pacific EP

Four mid-tempo doof-wedges from the man born Taylor Freels here. With tunes entitled ‘Cinnamon Boys’ and ‘Easy Going Greg’ don’t go expecting doom-techno or anything like that. That said, these tunes are fun, affable and just as enjoyable in your room as they would be on the dancefloor. The title track whizzes and purrs charmingly and there is a level of technical proficiency on display here that one would expect of someone who has released on Dirt Crew, Let's Play House and Voyage. 12”.

The Legends
It's Love

From Sweden with love, Stockholm band The Legends deliver an album of characteristically smooth songs about love and life. It’s Love is their fourth studio album and the first since Johan Angergard turned forty. Fans of his Labrador label won’t be disappointed with these lush, emotional recordings. Out on vinyl LP from Cascine.

Morly
Something More Holy EP

Morly, probably best known as the former singer for Gayngs, shows that her soulful voice isn’t her only musical asset with these solo recordings: her productions are inventive and subtle. This release gathers together last year’s debut solo EP In Defense Of My Muse and Something More Holy, an EP of brand new material. Out on Cascine.

Mt. Si
Limits EP

Satisfying electro-pop side-project, brightening the days of the band members, who spend their day-jobs in Superhumanoids, Kisses and Classixx respectively. Together, as Mt. Si, they manage to sound like a lot more than a way to kill time, with Limits’ 4 tracks each standing up as strong pieces of pop. 12” on Cascine.

Airbird & Napolian
Mr. Foolish

Producers Joel Ford (Ford & Lopatin, Ejecta) and Ian Evans (Napolian) have teamed up as Airbird & Napolian. The pair met whilst working for the highly regarded Software label. Collaborating on Mr. Foolish allowed them to do what they wanted to do, how they wanted to do it - mixing cosmic funk, American house and hip-hop.

Chad Valley
Entirely New Blue

Chad Valley, in this case, is a writer of colourful and openly expressive pop songs and not a manufacturer of children’s toys. His second album, Entirely New Blue is a complex album of depth and maturity showing that he is progressing in the right direction. His career thus far has seen him collaborate with the likes of Twin Shadow, Glasser and Active Child and have high-profile support slots with the likes of Erasure and Foals.

Lemonade
Minus Tide

Lemonade bring their glitchy electronic pop back home with their third record, 'Minus Tide'. It boasts a predominantly percussive sound and also brings the band's production values to the forefront. Autumnal chillwave vibes for all.
