Better Person
Something To Lose

Better Person is the music-making alter-ego of Adam Byczowski, a Berlin-based musician who makes music influenced by power ballads, sophisticated pop ala Prefab Sprout/Talk Talk and Europop. All this might make 'Something To Lose' sound like a bit of a joke but it is performed with such sincerity and craft it turns any notions that this is a spoof record on its head. Produced by Ben Goldwasser of MGMT. 

Sean Nicholas Savage
Life Is Crazy

The 14th studio album from Canadian cult hero Sean Nicholas Savage, Life Is Crazy marks a slight departure for the ultra-prolific singer-songwriter. Jettisoning percussion and bass altogether, Savage’s writing is vulnerable and exposed, accompanied by strings and piano to accentuate his reflections and philosophising.

Σtella
The Break

Following a career that has, to date, seen her collaborate as a guest writer and vocalist on the Greek independent scene with the likes of Fever Kids, then release two solo albums in 2015 (Σtella) and 2017 (Works For You), The Break is the first internationally released album from Σtella, full of curious wormholes and wanderings but underpinned by classic pop melancholy. 

Blue Hawaii
Open Reduction Internal Fixation

Naming their fourth record after the kind of surgery required when Agor badly injured his heel on tour, Open Reduction Internal Fixation sees Blue Hawaii in great form, spanning house, garage and electronica. Bandmate Ra went through her own emotional damage with the disintegration of a long-term relationship, making the new record a bold and cathartic one. 

Sorry Girls
Deborah

The burgeoning Montreal DIY dream pop outfit, Sorry Girls, release 10-track offering 'Deborah'. It's as much about aesthetics as it is the heartfelt narratives found within their catchy pop formula. Heather Foster Kirkpatrick and Dylan Konrad Obront's debut is crammed with earnest earmworm melodies and candid lyricism - all carefully crafted over a two year period.

Grimes
Geidi Primes

Geidi Primes was Grimes debut LP released in 2010. Way before she was attracted to billionaire Elon Musk, she was making dreamy pop in her basement influenced by everything from dubstep to disco. It was the first of her recordings to make waves across the globe and, though not her best work, is a fascinating early taste of what would come later.     

Grimes
Halfaxa

Halfaxa is the second record from Claire Boucher aka Grimes, originally released in 2010, before she became a tremendously big deal. It still has that home-grown vibe, with Boucher’s hazy productions coalescing around her remarkable vocals like a cloud. The feel is of woozy retreat, and it’s hard to resist. Reissued by Arbutus.
