The Future Sound Of London
Lifeforms

It's excellent to see such a seminal work still deserving reissue treatment. Future Sound of London's 1994 masterpiece is a timeless collage of synthesised and environmental sounds, standing at the centre of the duo's vast contribution to electronic music history. If you don't already own it, time to make a change.

Genesis
Foxtrot

The fourth album in the Genesis cannon was 1972’s Foxtrot. According to critics at the time, this is the one where their blend of prog, creativity and musical nous were combined perfectly. Foxtrot was notable for its ambitious closing track, Supper’s Ready, a complex construction which clocked in at 27 minutes. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Genesis
Selling England By The Pound

Selling England By The Pound is the album that gave Genesis their first taste of real commercial success. The band's fifth long-player was originally released in 1973. It charted at No.3 and also contains their first top 30 hit, the strangely melodic I Know What You Like (In Your Wardrobe). Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Genesis
The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway was the sixth album by Genesis and was originally released in November 1974. It was a concept album telling the story of a boy who lived on the streets. Whilst the concept wasn’t that far-reaching, the six-month long tour that followed was one of the most ostentatious in rock history - Peter Gabriel really went for it. This is an album you need to make time for, sit down and listen to the whole thing at once, not something you can simply dip into. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Queen
Bohemian Rhapsody (The Original Soundtrack)

I’m probably right in thinking that Norman’s stance on Queen is that they’re crap [editorial note; it's not!]. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, though, it is undeniable that Freddie Mercury was a one-off and they don’t make music like anyone else. Here we have the soundtrack to the massively successful Bohemian Rhapsody, the film about Freddie Mercury and Queen. It’s a mix of previously released Queen songs and previously unreleased songs from their legendary Live Aid performance. You also get the bonus of the 20th Century Fox fanfare being played in Brian May’s signature guitar style. The press release bangs on about sales achieved in Q4 - when did it stop being about the music, man? Double Heavyweight Vinyl LP on Virgin EMI.

Yak
Pursuit Of Momentary Happiness

Yak is pretty much the epitome of the indie power-rock trio. From riffs that approach The Black Keys levels of addictiveness to noisy genre-defying jams that reminisce a higher paced Spiritualized, their second album Pursuit of Momentary Happiness has exactly what you’d expect of a band living in their car with nothing but their Big Muff pedals to keep them warm.

Ian Brown
First World Problems

The wonky alt-rock wizard of Warrington and Stone Roses alumnus Ian Brown concludes a decade off and leads comeback album Ripples with new earworm ‘First World Problems’. Brown’s disdain for those who dwell on those titular problems is palpable. He even becomes irate enough to rhyme ‘crazy’ with ‘lazy’.

Queen
Greatest Hits

If you recently saw the film Bohemian Rhapsody and want to learn more about the band behind the man behind the mustache, Queen’s Greatest Hits is just what you need. Includes all your favourite hits like Don’t Stop Me Now and We Will Rock You. Be warned: does not include the soundtrack to the 1986 film Highlander.

Empire Of The Sun
Walking On A Dream

One of those reissues that make you feel old. I remember hearing Walking On A Dream and thinking “this sounds a lot like MGMT and some other bands” like it was yesterday. And apparently the album is already due to be vinylized. In fact, I just learned that Empire Of The Sun recorded even more music after this debut! Whodathunk.

Ian Brown
Ripples

With the big paydays from those Stone Roses reunion gigs apparently wrapped up for now, Ian Brown has got back into solo music-making: Ripples is his first solo material to land in nine years. The wider Brown family are all over this record, with Ian’s sons contributing to both songwriting and musical performances. That’s pretty sweet really. Ripples is out from Virgin EMI.

Massive Attack
The Spoils

Two massive tracks from Massive Attack. The Spoils is a soft and string filled ballad that gets under the skin, featuring the haunting vocals of Hope Sandoval. And on the flip side Ghost Poet channels Spaceape over a lunging bass driven half time track with a pluck string melody. Presented on coloured vinyl and in stunningly printed sleeves.

David Sylvian
Secrets Of The Beehive

An absolutely wonderful album. Secrets of the Beehive sees David Sylvian at his autumnal best on a beautiful song cycle with contributions from Ryuichi Sakamoto, Steve Jansen and Danny Thompson. Perhaps his most emotional album and a certainly a must for fans of Talk Talk and the Blue Nile. Now re-issued on 180g vinyl.   
  • Vinyl LP (6795336)

David Sylvian
Gone To Earth

Gone to Earth was the second solo album by David Sylvian and followed on from his debut Brilliant Trees. It's a double album full of brooding imagery and who else but Sylvian could have artists as diverse as Robert Fripp, Bill Nelson, John Taylor, Steve Nye appear as guests on the same album. Also just look at his hair. 
  • Vinyl Double LP (6795337)

David Sylvian
Brilliant Trees

Brilliant Trees was the debut album from David Sylvian following the dissolution of his band Japan. The album moved away from the post new romanticisms of their swansong Tin Drum and towards the more acoustic reflective material he would perfect on Secrets of the Beehive. Now re-issued on 180g vinyl. 
  • Vinyl LP (6795332)

David Sylvian
Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities

Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities was the second solo album by David Sylvian. The album is made up of two projects coming together, hence the use of the word alchemy in the title. Both projects were worked on in 1985, in between Sylvian's Brilliant Trees and Gone To Earth albums, and featured help from a number of creative types. Avant-garde composer Jon Hassell, Can’s Holger Czukay, Robert Fripp of King Crimson, Ryuichi Sakamoto, jazz trumpeter Kenny Wheeler and fellow Japan bandmate, Steve Jensen all contributed. 180g vinyl reissue on Virgin/EMI

Richard Ashcroft
Alone With Everybody

Richard Ashcroft, as you probably know, was the lead singer with The Verve. Alone With Everybody was his debut solo album, and moved Ashcroft even further away from The Verve’s early shoegazing sound. It was very popular with people who like this kind of thing upon its release in 2000. Chris Martin of Coldplay has apparently hailed Ashcroft as the greatest singer in the world. 180g vinyl repress on EMI.

Given Up EP

There once was a band called Whenyoung / Who left Limerick for London / With Cranberries covers and numerous others / They’ve now quite a reputation! With apologies to Whenyoung and the people of Limerick in general. The trio’s new single ‘Given Up’ goes for snappy and poignant alt-radio-rock with a winning chorus.

Eno
Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)

Taking Tiger Mountain (by Strategy) is the second solo album by Brian Eno and was the first to employ his oblique strategies cards. Like a lot of Eno's early solo work some of the music is surprisingly upbeat an accessible at times but also delves deep into the sort of dense art rock that his work with Roxy Music only hinted at.

David Sylvian
Dead Bees On A Cake [Expanded Edition]

Almost twenty years on from its 1999 release and David Sylvian’s Dead Bees On A Cake is still a contender for the best album-title of all time. The music’s not bad either. On his fifth solo LP, the former Japan frontman and Ryuichi Sakamoto collaborator opts for a breed of jazz-influenced folk-rock pitched somewhere between John Martyn and Tom Waits. This edition features four cuts that didn’t make the original track listing.

Genesis
Trespass

Trespass was the second album by Genesis, originally released in 1970. This album featured the pre-Phil Collins original line-up with Anthony Phillips and John Mayhew in place on guitar and drums respectively. Standout track The Knife is widely regarded as one of the best songs from the band’s early period. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.
  • Vinyl LP (6749009)

Genesis
Duke

Duke by Genesis was originally released in 1980. It was their second album as the classic three-piece of Collins, Rutherford and Banks that men in ironed jeans and brogues would love throughout the ‘80s. All signs of their prog experimentation were gone and they started to write hits. Contains the No.8 hit, Turn It On Again. Reissue 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Slaves
Acts of Fear and Love

It’s 2030 and Britain is hosting the centenary edition of the Fifa World Cup™. A decade on from Brexit, the UK has torn off the shackles of European control to become the richest and most powerful country in the whole world, and Prime Minister Johnson is keen to rub it in the faces of all those naysayers who thought we couldn’t do it. For the opening ceremony, he takes to the Wembley stage with a hologram of Sepp Blatter and a portly, middle-aged Wayne Rooney. The trio shake hands, release a flurry of doves painted the colours of the Union Jack, and introduce the musical entertainment. Rooney wanted the Stereophonics, but the ever-tactful Johnson has plumped for recent Glastonbury headliners Slaves. The greying ‘punks’, lightly pinking in the London sun, run through a short salvo of ‘Vindaloo’, ‘Ooooooh Naughty!’ (the new single that will feature on their upcoming greatest hits compilation) and a couple from their truckload-selling third LP Acts Of Fear And Love. A global audience of over one billion bloody love it, you mug.

Lil Yachty
Lil Boat 2

After the mess that was Teenage Emotions, Lil Yachty returns to form with the sequel to his Lil Boat Mixtape. Lil Boat 2 manages to recapture the charm of Yachty’s breakout record, highlighting his strengths - the affable persona, cartoonish beats and sing-song flow - while also displaying a marked improvement in his rapping ability. Offset, Quavo and 2 Chainz are among the guests.

Nursery Cryme

Nursery Crime was the third Genesis album and was originally released in 1971. It was notable for being the first to feature guitarist Steve Hackett and some drummer bloke named Phil Collins. Their inclusion completed what many fans believe to be the classic Genesis line-up. 180g vinyl LP on Virgin/EMI.

Genesis
A Trick Of The Tail

1976: Goodbye Peter Gabriel, step forward Mr. Phil Collins! A Trick Of The Tail was the album where Phil Collins left his drum stool and stepped up to the mic, or just got a mic shoved in front of his mouth while he sat at the drums. He replaced Peter Gabriel on vocals anyway as Gabriel left to embark on a solo career. A more song-orientated, less theatrical version of Genesis was born.

Miles Kane
Coup De Grace

Once again Miles Kane is out to prove that he can do a music without Alex Turner at his side. Coup De Grace is Kane’s first solo LP in five years, but it’s almost as if time has stood still since 2013’s Don’t Forget Who You Are went top ten. That is to say what we have here another bunch of Bond themes from Kane, some of which were co-written by Jamie T and Lana Del Rey. Imagine those three in a room together.

Zuzu

Zuzu is a Liverpool-born singer and songwriter who moved to London to pursue her musical ambitions. It turns out she caused enough of a stir to be snapped up by Virgin/EMI. Her debut EP, Made On Earth By Humans shows her talent for sharp lyrics and writing a great hook. She has been likened to Haim and will also be touring in support of Courtney Barnett. 10” single on Virgin/EMI.

Public Image Limited
The Public Image Is Rotten (Songs From The Heart)

It's pleasing that perhaps John Lydon will be remembered just as much for his PIL project as with punk legends the Sex Pistols. Over recent years people seem to have realised that, yes, PIL were pretty innovative. To coincide with a film about the band, here is a career spanning box set with a singles collection, B-sides, rarities, radio sessions and a ton of live recordings. More Rotten than you'll probably ever need.

Kanye West
ye

The shy and retiring Kanye West drops the eighth LP of what, to this point, has been a relatively uneventful career. By Yeezy’s standards, ye is short and sweet. Seven tunes, about twenty-five minutes in length, and only a couple of guests. Barely more than an EP really. But the thing about this Kanye fella is when he has something to say, even if it’s not very much, the people will listen.

Audience

Well hang me up to dry, Cold War Kids are still alive and kicking. Though they may have slipped down the pecking order somewhat after the success of 2006’s Robbers & Cowards, the Long Beach band have plugged away admirably and released five more LPs in the intervening years. Audience - a live album recorded last year in Athens, Georgia - shows off a quietly impressive body of work.

Florence Welch and her Machine are back with fourth album High as Hope. Besides the usual lineup, this time the Machine can count Jamie xx, Kamasai Washington, Sampha and Tobias Jesso Jr. among its turning cogs. Despite the collaborations, things tend to sound quite stripped-down and sincere, as Welch gracefully covers love, loneliness and other intimate lyrical topics.

So, The Libertines actually made a new album to accompany that big-money live reunion.

The Stone Roses
All For One

It was the 'where were you' moment for anyone still under the vaguest misapprehension that the Stone Roses were able to construct anything approaching a listenable song.  When your last decent attempt at a melody was released in 1989 that's a lot of years to try to repeat the trick. 'All For One' is of course laughably bad but the last smirk might be on the face of the band who will generate millions in ticket sales off the back of whatever they manage to come up with to fill an album.

If Circa Waves’ last album Young Chasers was a bright and sunny record (as they tell us it was), then Different Creatures is the somewhat darker album of the night. But don’t worry, the band are still playing polished radio indie-rock that will have no trouble scaling festival line-ups over the summer. CD and LP editions, plus a special CD version that comes with a DVD of the band’s 2015 Brixton Academy show.

Ryan Adams
Prisoner

It seems a long long way from Whiskeytown now but David Ryan Adams is still at it veering somewhere between alt country troubadour and balls out rocker. This album follows his ill-advised attempt at covering Taylor Swift's '1989' and showcases a prolific period of writing. Indeed 'Do You Still Love Me?' is brash stadium rock worthy of his near namesake Bryan.

Vaults
Caught In Still Life

Vaults are in serious ascendancy. Their rise is, admittedly, largely due to this debut's conclusive track, One Day I'll Fly Away - as featured in 2016's John Lewis xmas ad. However this album rides on a vast depth of emotional vibrancy and crystal clear production, not simply on a singular momentous hit.
  • Vinyl LP (V3164)

Jamie T
Power Over Men

Jamie T is back in business with a new album, Trick. This single taken from the album makes a nice strong statement with it’s BDSM sleeve art and vibe of female Power Over Men, with the track working the usual Jamie T rock-songwriter vibes. Pressed to ball-gag-yellow 7” vinyl in limited quantities, on Virgin EMI.

Loyle Carner
Yesterday's Gone

Loyle Carner presents his debut full-length album, Yesterday’s Gone. The Croydon-based rapper is clearly serious about family and roots: as well as various lyrics and the lovely Carner family snap used for the album artwork, Yesterday’s Gone even features Loyle’s mum and dad themselves, as well as Kwes, Rebel Kleff and a gospel choir.

Blossoms
Charlemagne

EP the second from Blossoms, Stockport’s finest new indie beat combo. Charlemagne's title track (are they using the first Holy Roman Emperor as a love metaphor? We can only hope so) is a short, high-powered anthem, utilising 80’s pop synths and vocals to maximum effect. 10” vinyl EP on Virgin EMI.

Paul Weller
More Modern Classics

More Modern Classics by Paul Weller is another new collection featuring the best tracks from the last fifteen years of the Modfather’s career. More Modern Classics is available as a double vinyl LP, a limited edition 3CD set including 20 additional tracks and 12 radio session tracks and standard CD.

Fangclub
Coma Happy

Fangclub's blend of sweet, catchy pop tunes and in-your-face distortion seems to place their style about halfway between pop-punk and grunge, although at times it can be difficult to decide where exactly they lie on the spectrum. Coma Happy is the second EP from the Dublin-based trio, featuring the addictive single Dreamcatcher. Released as Vinyl 10" on the Virgin EMI label.

Stevie Parker
Blue

Consistently dreamy, sensual and ethereal is the London Grammar-esque Blue offering from Bath-born Stevie Parker. Soft synths and stripped back beats provide a sparse atmosphere for Parker's shimmering voice to flourish in this melancholic and ultimately highly-anticipated 2016 release.
  • Vinyl 10" (VST2148)

Slaves / Wonk Unit
Take Control / We Are The England

Slaves, the Tunbridge Wells punky outfit responsible for one of our least favourite singles from the last year, have persuaded another band to associate with them. Wonk Unit take the B-side of the Take Control / We Are The England split single. And those titles makes me think: is this a Brexit single? 1500 7” copies out there on Virgin EMI.

Jake Bugg
On My One

As far as I am aware, this is Jake Bugg’s first foray into production after his previous album, Shangri La was produced by none other than Rick Rubin. A bit of a leap for Bugg perhaps who wrote, played and produced everything except three tracks produced by Jacknife Lee. Perhaps this is why the album is called On My One and has such insular, inflected track titles as ‘Love Hope and Misery’ and ‘Gimme the Love’ which sees Bugg begging for love in the chorus. It’s yet another move away from the boy-with-guitar sound of his first album and one with bold ambitions for rock/pop success.

Jim James
Eternally Even

Most commonly known as frontman of My Morning Jacket, Jim James brings us his sophomore record - Eternally Even. Produced by Alabama Shakes' Blake Mills, this offering is set to top his debut release - which was met with widespread critical acclaim. Kentucky-incepted indie-rock, generously bathed in psychedelia.

Empire Of The Sun
Two Vines

Although the press release cheerfully discloses that their debut Walking on A Dream sold 1.5 million copies it fails to confirm sales of it's follow up Ice on the Dune. Something went very wrong between the two albums but there's hope yet for Empire of the Sun if they can just stay clear of being too cheesy. Two Vines does sound like another very hi end production from these guys with big banks of catchy pop pulping out of ridiculously dressed men. 
  • Vinyl LP (5710057)
  • CD (5710633)

Slaves
Take Control

Energised and fervent second album from mercury faves, Slaves. Produced by ex-Beastie Boy Mike D (He also guests on one of the tracks), they push into heavier and more politically charged material. Tonally you can hear Mike D’s sheen, mixing 90s hip-hop and elements of The Damned and The Cramps.

Jamie T
Trick

Popular rap rock dude Jamie T is back after a gap of two years with more massive ear worms that you'll know even if you claim otherwise. Lead single 'Tinfoil Boy' is both emo-tinged and moshpit friendly which bodes well for an album of expansive /punk/reggae/rap/pop that is sure to be one of the years bigger releases. He's one of the ok ones this lad.

Blossoms
At Most A Kiss

At Most A Kiss is the new EP by Stockport indie quartet Blossoms. The EP was produced by James Skelly of The Coral and Rich Turvey. The band have been making waves in 2015 but 2016 is set to be their year. The frenetic title track has all the hallmarks, such as Tom Ogden’s distinctive vocals, of a band going places. They made number 4 on the BBC’s Sound of 2016 list and have been earmarked by MTV as ones to watch. 10” black vinyl.

Pretty Vicious
Cave Song EP

Merthyr Tydfil 4-piece Pretty Vicious are making some pretty big waves at the moment, especially considering their tender years (the drummer is still at school… aw). Signed to Virgin EMI, the band have toured with Manic Street Preachers (with whom they've drawn a few fairly obvious musical comparisons), completed a sold-out tour of Japan and headlined the BBC Introducing stage at last year's Glastonbury. The limited edition is a lovely heavyweight 10 incher.

Blossoms
Blossoms

Blossoms are an indie band from Stockport. Their stock is rising fast in 2016: they came 4th in the BBC’s new music poll and their first single, At Most A Kiss shot to number one in the iTunes chart. Its follow-up Getaway also proved to be a success and they’ve wowed with an appearance on Later...with Jools Holland. Expect big things with their self-titled debut album.

Prose
Home Of The Brave

Prose are three lads from Manchester whose anthems of growing up, life and love are imbued with a working class narrative. The band’s popularity has risen exponentially since signing with British producer Naughty Boy and yet bigger things are expected following their debut album Home Of The Brave.
  • Vinyl LP (V3155)
  • CD (CDV3155)

Blossoms
Getaway

Stockport’s indie five-piece Blossoms are destined for big things. They’ve certainly had a good 2016 so far: They came 4th in the BBC’s new music poll and their last single, At Most A Kiss shot to number one in the iTunes chart. Getaway is their new single and it was produced by James Skelly of The Coral and Rich Turvey at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool. Limited coloured vinyl 10".

Band of Horses
Why Are You OK

On the tenth anniversary of the release of their debut album, Everything All The Time, Seattle’s Band Of Horses release their fifth album Why Are You OK. The album contains all the melodic hooks and the stories the band are known for. This time however, the album is informed by top horse Ben Bridwell’s time songwriting at home whilst looking after his daughters. The album was produced by Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle with the help of the legendary Rick Rubin.

Massive Attack
Ritual Spirit

After six years the legendary trip-hop group return with Ritual Spirit, on 12” vinyl. This EP borrows from Massive Attack's past with Tricky, but also includes collaborations with new artists who share their dark and dense sound, including Roots Manuva and Young Fathers. The music is heavy, varied and always claustrophobic.

Clare Maguire
Stranger Things Have Happened

Clare Maguire hit the depths of despair when her first album didn't work out but thankfully she got herself together, bought a sausage dog and started tentatively posting songs online. This has resulted in her second album in which she has taken control of her music once again. She has a big foghorn of a voice that veers between Lana Del Ray style introspection and massive Adele style honks. People are going to really like this backstory.

Jake Bugg
Gimme The Love

Jake Bugg works out his unusual-sounding flow over a swaggering rock-as-hip-hop instrumental on this preview of his forthcoming album On My One. He insists that the listener Gimme The Love, and sounds pretty worked up about it: both vocal and production have an aggressive heft to them. 7” single on Virgin EMI.
  • Vinyl 7" (7853325)
  • Limited edition

Slaves
Feed The Mantaray

Just look at them. It's fair to say that Slaves haven't been invented to appeal to ears of my vintage.  An appearance of this single on the Shaun Keaveny show this morning came very close to spoiling my breakfast They make a right old racket of barely listenable rawk with cockney vocals and buzzsaw riffs. Uuurgggh.

Slaves
Sockets

Oh goody, a new single from Slaves! The chirpy Tunbridge two have grabbed Sockets from their album Are You Satisfied?, and backed it with a B-side. The music is fairly straight-forward punk rock, but it’s the vocals that get me: aggravating shouts, and not in the good way. Heavy-vinyl 7” on Virgin EMI.

Bleeding Heart Pigeons
Is

This heavyweight double vinyl LP from Bleeding Heart Pigeons is their debut album after a string of great singles. Is draws from the structure and instruments of traditional rock music and songwriting, but then undermines it with intimate singing and offbeat composition. The National are an obvious reference, but strange electronic quirks and experimental elements make them unique.

Brian Wilson
No Pier Pressure

Brian Wilson’s first dedicated solo album since 2008 (and possibly his last). No Pier Pressure features a host of collaborators from She & Him to Kacey Musgraves, with original members Al Jardine and David Marks popping in for a helping hand. Anything from Wilson is worth your time. Out on 2xLP vinyl from Virgin EMI.

Bleeding Heart Pigeons
Anything You Want EP

Bleeding Heart Pigeons are an indie rock band from Ireland. Anything You Want is a four track EP with some solid, impassioned tunes. The sound is like early Radiohead meets a bit of Pulp perhaps, via a bit of White Lies. It’s really solid, catchy stuff with some surprising instrumentation. One to watch for sure. Shame about the band name ‘ey lads?

Circa Waves
My Love

Circa Waves are a Liverpool band beloved of the Annie Mac / NME crowd: the latter’s apparently thought they were the cream of this year’s Glastonbury. My Love is extracted from their recent debut album Young Chasers, and showcases the kind of anthemic indie rock that wins them that acclaim. Coloured vinyl 7”.

Placebo
MTV Unplugged

MTV Unplugged by Placebo sees the band not being content with stripping back their songs to their bare bones. Brian Molko and co. wanted to do something special to contribute to the on-going history of MTV Unplugged. Available on a staggering number of formats: Double vinyl LP picture disc, 180g double vinyl LP, limited edition CD/DVD/Blu-Ray box set with 32-page booklet, Blu-Ray and standard CD.

Chvrches
Every Open Eye

Chvrches return with Every Open Eye, their second album. This is an impressively full-blown synth-pop record, almost recalling a Taylor Swift or a Robyn. Pretty notable levels of craft for a band only two records in. The last album sold plenty, and this one sounds like it could sell yet more… On Virgin / EMI.
  • Vinyl LP (V3139)
  • CD (CDVX3139)

The Chemical Brothers
Go

New Chemical Brothers 12”, extracting Go from this years full-length Born In The Echoes. As you would want from a Chems 12”, the track is extended for full dancefloor effectiveness, and is accompanied on the flip by an ‘Edge Of Control Dub’ version. Q-Tip takes up the vocal duties with vigour. Pressed up to DJ-grade 180g vinyl on Virgin EMI
  • Vinyl 12" (CHEMST30)

Gilligan Moss
Ceremonial EP

The first release here from Gilligan Moss, an EP released by Virgin EMI. ‘Choreograph’ is the central track, something of a smash. It is present here in both original form and as a remix by Van Rivers of Fever Ray’s group. The Ceremonial EP is a bright and colourful thing, merging a whirl of styles into coherently danceable jams.

Slaves
Cheer Up London

Well this new single, from questionably named Tunbridge Wells duo Slaves, is awful from pretty much all perspectives. Bringing us back to lower-end mid-2000s indie with some patronising lyrics: the B side to the Cheer Up London 7” single is titled Why Would You?, and that just seems to sum it all up.

The Strypes
Flat Out EP

It’s those lovely lads from Ireland back with a new tune. What’s that, it’s called "Scumbag City"? It’s a move away from the craic and towards the crack from The Strypes as they depart slightly from their mother friendly rock ‘n roll covers on this 7” single from their new album, Little Victories. It’s more rock and less roll as they delve into The Strokes territory with some heavy hitting guitar and crashing drums. Limited coloured 7” vinyl.  
  • Label(s):
  • Virgin EMI

The Strypes
Little Victories

Cherub-like Irish four-piece The Strypes caused a stir with their debut album, Snapshot because they looked (and were) so young yet rocked so convincingly. The band have spent two years touring the world before returning to the studio to record their second album, Little Victories. Expect even bigger things from their second coming!
