Balthazar
Fever

Jinte Deprez and Maarten Devoldere, the energy and creativity behind Belgian indie pop rockers Balthazar, went their separate ways after their third album. Now, reinvigorated, they’re back with album number 4, Fever. Their hiatus seems to have some good, clearing out the cobwebs or whatever they got up to, as this album is their most consistent to date, looser, happier, but they've still got the hooks. 180g vinyl and CD on Play It Again Sam.

White Star Liner

40,000 copies sold of their last album.... selling out the Albert Hall? Well our favourite 'putting-bits-of-old-commentary-over-second-rate-post-rock' lot are back with a 4 track EP which you could have got for free by taping off 6 Music when it was broadcast. This time they have turned their attention to that time the Titanic went down. Whatever half remembered nostalgic subject will they latch onto next?

FEWS
Into Red

The hotly-tipped FEWS return with their sophomore LP. Much like their buzz-building 2016 debut Means, Into Red contains a string of powerful post-punk tracks that also draw plenty of influence from noise-rock. Motorik grooves backbone tracks such as ‘Business Man’. It all adds up to something not dissimilar to Iceage.

Editors
In This Light And On This Evening

The third album from this highly derivative yet universally popular group. In This Light And On This Evening showed the band start to shake off the Joy Division-on-an-off-day vibe of their first records and start to introduce electronics into their dark sonic stew. Features the 'classic' ‘Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool’.

Melanie de Biasio
No Deal

Originally from Charleroi and currently based in Brussels, De Biasio is a classically trained flautist and the possessor of an extraordinary voice - she has been called the Belgian Billie Holiday. The minimalist, semi-improvised 'No Deal' should appeal to fans of late-period Talk Talk: Mark Hollis is a huge figure for De Biasio. She also cites Frank Zappa and Pink Floyd as formative influences, plus Nina Simone and Abbey Lincoln, two icons of the civic rights fight and spokeswomen of an aggressive jazz stripped of any affectation. 'No Deal' comes in at 33 and a third minutes and contains just seven songs, through which De Biasio’s voice drifts gracefully, at times disappearing altogether. With Pascal Paulus on keyboards, Pascal Mohy on piano, and Dre Pallemaerts on drums, De Biasio has streamlined everything to give more space to her extraordinary vocals.

Agnes Obel
Citizen Of Glass

Agnes Obel is quite talent: she’s got classical piano chops, a powerful voice, and a skill for folk-inflected songwriting. Of course, the important thing is that she brings it all together into a satisfying whole. Citizen Of Glass uses lots of strings and harpsichord, and occasionally performs the old Fever Ray trick of splitting and shifting Obel’s vocals so that she sounds both male and female. Out on Play It Again Sam.

Editors
Violence

English glumsters Editors release their 6th album 'Violence' the follow up to the moribund 'In Dream'. Lead track 'Magazine' showcases a vibrant if poshly produced sound that is sure to bother alternative playlists everywhere. Less of the Interpol these days and more of the Killers widescreen rock I suppose.

Joan As Police Woman
Damned Devotion

Damned Devotion is the 5th album proper album by Joan As Policewoman. It sees the Connecticut-born singer/songwriter returning to the emotionally charged music of her earlier releases, such as 2006’s Real Life.

Lord Huron
Strange Trails

No, Lord Huron is not an aristocrat turned musician. It’s a band from Los Angeles who here present their second album Strange Trails. With country music really kicking off again in the US, the timing of this MOR post-Bruce Springsteen record couldn’t be better. Think The War On Drugs minus the drenched reverb. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Play It Again Sam.

Melanie De Biasio
Lilies

We loved Melanie De Biasio's recent Blackened Cities release but here she drops the big one on her third full length album. Her sound is something like Nina Simone channelling Bark Psychosis as she sings the blues over spectral spooky jazz with a post rock sense of ambition. Looking forward to it.

Oscar And The Wolf
Infinity

Oscar And The Wolf returns to Play It Again Sam for his second full length album. Electrified and diverse synth pop that jumps from up beat electro soul, R’n’B and disco to vibrant pop and darker introverted Purple-esque moments. Inspiration ranges from falling in love with a vampire to the urge to make people want to burst into dance.

Ghostpoet
Dark Days + Canapés

Actually can I stop playing the previous Ghostpoet album 'Shedding Skin'? The answer is a big fat 'no'. I loved his more guitar driven sound on that album and if the press release is to be believed this forth opus delves further into that style. His thoughtful if slightly paranoid delivery could be the perfect voice for these troubled times.

Enter Shikari
The Spark

If their latest single release is anything to go by, then The Spark is going to be a big fat political statement, once again. Rou and the lads in Enter Shikari have become increasingly involved in writing about society and the future of the entire planet- especially with Trump sitting in office. This latest release is available on silver vinyl LP and on CD.

Ghostpoet
Shedding Skin

In football terms Ghostpoet has gone from mid-table Championship to nailed on Champions League place with this, his third record. In short: he's really upped his game. Where previous records were interesting but a little niche, Ghostpoet has now made a record everyone can enjoy. It's bold, it's bright, it's tuneful. With a background in UK hip hop, this album uses those influences and marries them to the best bits of forward thinking indie (say, Radiohead, TV on the Radio). Looking forward to it.

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Bohren For Beginners

Welcome to the club. German ensemble Bohren & Der Club Of Gore have been plying their noirish dark-ambient-jazz trade since 1992, and have now elected to make it easy for newcomers to get into their sound with Bohren For Beginners, a compilation of their finest moments. There's something for veterans too though: some new songs and new versions are included too. Double CD on Play It Again Sam.

Left Fire

J. Bernardt
Wicked Streets / On Fire

Big belter from Belgian songwriter Jinte Deprez who helps steer the big indie rock ship that is Balthzar. He's made a brass-booming, piano-slamming anthem in "Wicked Streets", where his soft and reliable voice slots in amidst a furious and keening band arrangement. It's cataclysmic pop music with a steady hand at its centre.

Soulwax
Belgica (Original Soundtrack)

Those Dewaele brothers do love a challenge: for Felix Van Groeningen’s film Belgica, they not only composed an original score, they also created tracks ‘in character’ for a number of the fictional musical artists featured in the film. Naturally, Soulwax pull off the task with aplomb. The soundtrack is a double LP release on Play It Again Sam.

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Black Earth

Vintage dark-ambient-noir-jazz-doom from the German masters of the field, Bohren & Der Club Of Gore. Black Earth, dating from 2002, is a particularly strong example of their pitch-black sound: the background vibes of the jazz club at the end of the universe. This moody work is reissued on CD and on double vinyl LP by Play It Again Sam.

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Geisterfaust

In 2005, noire-doom-jazz ensemble Bohren & Der Club Of Gore decided to get even slower and sparser than they had been previously (which was already pretty slow and sparse). Geisterfaust is a one hour span of beautiful crawl for long dark nights. Reissued on CD and, for the first time, on vinyl. From Play It Again Sam.

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Sunset Mission

Vintage dark-ambient-noir-jazz-doom from the German masters of the field, Bohren & Der Club Of Gore. Sunset Mission is their 2000 album, the first in which saxophone appears. No lively jaunts here though: smooth black darkness is the way of Bohren. This moody work is reissued on CD and on gatefold-housed double vinyl by Play It Again Sam.

Lisa Hannigan
Sea Sew

Here’s a reissue of Lisa Hannigan’s 2008 debut LP, Sea Sew. As the cover may give away, it’s a collection of cutesy folk tunes with Lisa’s husky vocals crooning over soaring strings and musky drumming. The album was nominated for a Mercury and a Choice Prize and went to number one in Ireland. A perfect Sunday morning album to gently blow any cobwebs away.

Crystal Fighters
Everything Is My Family

All the bands with ‘Crystal’ in their name always make me think of hazy fuzz-guitars, but Crystal Fighters have more than that up their sleeve on this new album (their third). Everything Is My Family is born out of the band members’ various gap-yearish global travels, and they all came back with a new understanding of ‘world’ musics and ‘world’ life. Released by Play It Again Sam.

Lisa Hannigan
Passenger

After a successful stint as Damien Rice's vocal partner, Lisa Hannigan set out to prove herself as not just a singer but a multi-instrumentalist folk songwriter. 2011's Passenger, Hannigan's sophomore release, showcased her true talents as an all-rounder, and is now available on vinyl for the first time. Expect profound folk tales, delivered by sweet Irish vocals and accompanied by rustic guitars. Released as Vinyl LP and CD on the Play It Again Sam label.

Few Bits
Big Sparks

Berlin band Few Bits move to [Pias] for their sophomore album of doped up and hazed out jangly, shoe-focused, indie pop. On songs like Anyone Else there’s a 90s teen flick nostalgia going on here, there’s angst but it’s all a bit soft focused, while Summer Sun sits back more and offers more dreamy atmospheres.
  • Vinyl LP (PIASB437LP)

Newmoon
Space

Swing and sway to your heart’s content with this one. Layers and layers of guitars, sweetly understated distant vocals all blocked together as a soothing harmonious duvet for you to wrap up in. Big and satisfying chords with the tones of Smashing Pumpkins, a bit of My Bloody Valentine, and The Cure.

Keaton Henson
Kindly Now

Here is a new album from the London based visual artist and singer songwriter. It's full of bleakly emotive songs with piano and quivering voice, like a depressed Passenger.

Warhaus
We Fucked A Flame Into Being

Maarten Devoldere is one of the frontmen in Balthazar, but he is also Warhaus. This project is all about late-night songwriting, in the vein of previous moody artistes like Leonard Cohen.

Lisa Hannigan
At Swim

Folkie Lisa Hannigan has made two solo records of sparse musings and has previously worked on improving the works of Damien Rice.

She's quirky and she's popular on 6 Music.

This is her latest and follows up the very successful and Mercury Prize nominated 'Hairless Toys'.

Spookyland fuses in some genres around his trusty, vulnerable folk rock and comes out the other end with 'Rock and Roll Weakling', an EP that pays respect to many traditions and then fucks shit up in their general direction -- just check out the song titles, like "Blood In The Rain" and "Silly Fucking Thing". For people who think folk and rock are the same thing as long as they have a lot of emotion.

Baxter Dury
It's A Pleasure

Baxter Dury will be releasing his new album 'It's a Pleasure' on October 20th through PIAS. The album was produced by Baxter, Dan Carey (Franz Ferdinand, Tame Impala & Bat For Lashes) and mixed by Craig Silver (Arctic Monkeys, Arcade Fire & The Horrors).A few words from Baxter Dury about the album:'This album was hard work to make but now I like it lots. Male inadequacy is a hard subject to repackage in the form of skeletal Berliner music but here I've proved that's possible. Making this album I worked in New York, Brussels, Paris but you can't hear a trace of any of them, only the faint cries of Chiswick. It could be the soundtrack to a film about a doomed submarine.' You could also say this  - it sounds an awful lot like Jona Lewie.

Oscar And The Wolf
Entity

'Entity' is bedroom pop made in an actual bedroom: Max Colombie fronts Oscar and the Wolf, who make unabashed synth pop that sounds a little dark and a little sci-fi. The record was later mixed, outside of Colombie's bedroom, by Leo Abrahams, a veteran of producing pop artists with ambient and electronic inclinations, from David Byrne to Wild Beasts. 

Agnes Obel
Aventine / Philharmonics

Folk musician and vocalist Agnes Obel mastered the piano at an early age, and has since made two baroque pop masterpieces with it: the eerie 'Philharmonics', which sees piano glittering around her haunting vocal melodies and understated beats, and the neo-classical influenced 'Aventine'. These two sibling records are now being reissued in one package by Play It Again Sam.

Courteeners
Concrete Love

Here is a new album by The Courteeners. Big in Manchester aren't they? But not many other places. Just taken a listen and its not as lad rock as I expected. Pretty tuneful laid back and pretty indie-rock. They are on sunday brunch on channel 4 so find out for yourselves. Just played another track and its brasher and a bit Interpol-y. Deluxe CD comes with bonus CD of a live concert.

Gallows
Chains

British metalcore punx who sound sort of like Converge but not really, Gallows have long established themselves as one of the country's prime hardcore acts -- also they put the Union Jack on the front cover of one of their albums, so they probably know Frank Turner. Chains is a 7" premièring their first new work since 2012.
