Hen Ogledd
Free Humans

Hen Ogledd is the kind of supergroup that we celebrate around these parts, comprising as it does the talents of Richard Dawson, Rhodri Davies, Dawn Bothwell and Sally Pilkington. 'Free Humans' is their second album and has an unsurprisingly eclectic range of influences - everything from ABBA to medieval composer Hildegard von Bingen, surreal pop star Hannah Diamond to artist Agnes Martin. Lovely old job.

Alex Izenberg
Caravan Château

Los Angeles-based artist Alex Izenberg returns after a four-year pause following his debut studio album Harlequin. On Caravan Château, the enigmatic artist worked with Chris Taylor (of Grizzly Bear) and Jonathan Rado (Foxygen / Whitney / Lemon Twigs) to deliver a suite of sharply-defined yet cryptic songs. 

Wilma Archer
A Western Circular

Will Archer, previously known under the name Slime, returns with a new album and recording moniker, Wilma Archer. The album, A Western Circular, has been cooking for the past five years or so as Archer has been a busy fella. He has contributed to albums by Sudan Archives, Nilüfer Yanya,Celeste and Jessie Ware. Here, he builds up from his acoustic beginnings making an album influenced by artists as disparate as Frank Zappa, Robert Wyatt, Yasuaki Shimuzu and Arthur Russell. 

Jaakko Eino Kalevi
Dissolution

Finnish auteur Jaakko Eino Kalevi collaborates with Taiwanese singer Yu-Ching Huang on a new mini-album titled Dissolution. Over its seven songs, Kalevi explores new musical avenues in a concept that’s broadly about self-care and living well, while still sticking with his psychedelic pop roots. 

Hen Ogledd
Mogic

Hen Ogledd is, if you remember, the project started by folk maverick Richard Dawson alongside harpist Rhodri Davies. Here, they are joined by Sally Pilkington and Dawn Bothwell to make music which, if you believe the Guardian (and often it's a good idea not to) sounds more like electro-pop than the improvised folk you might expect.   

Jaakko Eino Kalevi
Out Of Touch

Fed up with today’s boring dystopia of perpetual connectivity and online networking? So is Helsinki tram driver-turned-cheerful-songwriter Jaakko Eino Kalevi. On new album Out of Touch, where vintage-sounding Finnish synthpop meets more modern influences, he embraces the joys of simply logging off for a while - among other things.

Richard Dawson
Peasant

The new album from Richard Dawson is a notable new epic from the Tyneside master, featuring more guest musicians than ever before. Peasant’s songs are all set in the pre-medieval north-east, with each title naming a figure: ‘Weaver’, ‘Herald’, ‘Beggar’. It’s the most fully-fledged work yet by Dawson, and it's out on Weird World.

******** [The Drink]
The Drink [********]

Front room-fi, gallows humour pop from the sparse, search engine-confounding duo ******** (Ailie Ornston and someone known only as 'Ω'). Weird World have seen fit to elevate the pair’s only album from mere YouTube playlist to limited CD and LP editions, and it’s clear why. The scuzzy, wilting tunes, assembled from bass, guitar, drum machines and various samples, are sung to with tongue-in-cheek bitterness to round off an irresistibly forlorn charm.

Xenoula
Xenoula

The natural environment has long been a source of inspiration for all kinds of composers and producers. Xenoula sits firmly in this sphere, coaxing atmosphere from her surroundings and incorporating them into her mysterious, electronic pop tunes. Sounding like Lamb and early Aphex with a modern twist, it's pretty lush.

Soft Hair
Soft Hair

This is the duo of Connan Mockasin and Sam Dust (LA Priest/Late of the Pier) in collaboration. They simply can't be serious these two (just look at that sleeve) but both have form when it comes to making slinky Prince-like soft pop.  Check out the video for 'Lying Has to Stop' where the come across like some kind of sleazy take on Flight of the Conchords.  

Jaakko Eino Kalevi
Jaakko Eino Kalevi

Jaakko Eino Kalevi is a Finnish producer / singer-songwriter whose self-titled record shows off a smooth neo-R&B kind of sound. The album is out on Weird World as CD, LP, or special indies-exclusive LP edition with a bonus 7” and a comic that delves into Jaakko’s mythical personal history! You know you need that.

Richard Dawson
Nothing Important

'Nothing Important' is the new record from Newcastle's great warped folkie, Richard Dawson. You never know what you're going to get with this maverick -- huge, boisterous vocal chanting or ornate guitar compositions -- but this record sees him stretch out into the long-form, offering a rare few tracks that document vignettes about life in sixteen-minute bursts. 'Nothing Important' includes a song about the first time Dawson got pissed. Wicked. It's kinda like the super avant-garde version of 'Benji'.

Hookworms
The Hum

Third album from Leeds-based psychedelic noise band Hookworms. With a new drummer on board, this is a more confident, leaner and meaner offering from the band Julian Cope described as a "...sub-Zabriskie Point ambient road-movie heat haze-on-the-road sonic wipeout." The limited edition comes on clear vinyl with a free 7" (note the limited edition is long sold out!). Both versions come with free download. 

Melody's Echo Chamber
Melody's Echo Chamber

We may have had a few office arguments about the quality of Melody's Echo Chamber's second album Bon Voyage but there is no disputing the quality of her self-titled debut. Produced by Tame Impala's Kevin Parker it is a glorious burst of spacey dream pop full of classic-leaning melodies and her rich breathy voice. Anyone who loves those first couple of Tame Impala records should seriously check this out.
