Mazzy Star
So Tonight That I Might See

This is a much needed re-issue of the second album from David Roback and Hope Sandoval's dream pop/slowcore band. Originally released in 1993 this contained their superhit 'Fade Into You' which peaked at no 44 in the hot 100. One of those albums that gained momentum this is a fine addition to their small but perfectly formed set of records,

Halsey
Manic

So what has happened to her eye then? Looks a right mess. Halsey is a pretty big name then isn't she? People have streamed her music billions of times, she's been on the cover of things, got GRAMMY nominations and all sorts. This, her second album, sounds like a mellow Kate Perry to me but I'm sure the younger members of our office will tell me she's a brilliant subversive pop artist that I'm too old and jaded to enjoy.

Beastie Boys
The In Sound From Way Out!

Yes, it's the most instrumental of all their canon -- it's the Beastie Boys with a timely reissue of The In Sound From Way Out! It was high time the Boys' raw and funky shout-free versions from their best two albums -- Ill Communication and Check Your Head -- were made available on nice crisp and loud 180-gram vinyl LP format, so here they are. Of course with the good ol' super sleazy keyboard sounds of Money Mark. Shake your rump, indeed.

Beastie Boys
Paul's Boutique

Its interesting to remember the fuss that was made over the Beastie Boys when they first came to parochial old Britain. For one this they started a craze in which young hoodlums stole badges off Volkswagen Passats to the anger of dads across the country. Paul's Boutique was probably the first sign that this was not just some New York novelty sent to ruin your hard earned hatchback. A more varied and sonically experimental work, it was a multi-hued record full of bravado, three-pronged vocal attacks but also inventive sampling which re-wrote the rule book of what hip-hop could be.

Beastie Boys
Hot Sauce Committee Part Two

Still displaying all the creativity and lyrical dexterity that had made them such legends after they broke out a quarter of a century before, 2011’s Hot Sauce Committee Part Two turned out to be the final studio album from Beastie Boys, following the passing of Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch the following year from cancer.

Paul McCartney
Egypt Station

Say what you like but Paul McCartney ain't doing bad for nearly 80. The former Beatle has had one of the most incredible careers in music history ranging from brilliance to some of the worst music made by a human and he's still at it. Though lead single 'Come On To Me' sounds bizarrely like Flight of the Conchords 'If You're Into It' we're sure there are better things lurking in here. 

Beastie Boys
Solid Gold Hits

Sometimes it's hard to know where to start with the Beastie Boys. They started out basically as children making near novelty rap before swinging by an unbelievable breadth of musical styles over their career. This 2005 era compilation just takes all the singles and best bits from 'Sabotage' to 'Fight For Your Right' to 'Shake Your Rump'.

Beck
Colors

After the downbeat but rather excellent 'Morning Phase' Beck is back in technicolour pop mode for the much anticipated 'Colors'. Expect a vibrant collection of psychedelic pop  - the sort perfectly exemplified on lively and inventive lead track 'Dear Life' which has some oddball Beatles-esque twists.  

Interpol
Our Love To Admire

Although we can mock (and the Guardian already did) about literally every album getting the re-issue treatment, 'Our Love To Admire' was one of Interpol's strongest albums. Dark brooding post punk that showed there was life in the band after the so-so 'Antics'. If their self titled fourth album gets re-issued though with the same treatment then a line will have been crossed.  

Alison Krauss
Windy City

Possibly the most easily-distinguished voice in bluegrass (to the British ear at least), Grammy-hoarder Alison Krauss returns to the fray after a quiet couple of decades. Those who are likely to know her for her work soundtracking O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Cold Mountain will find much joy here - Windy City sees Krauss turning her attention to covers and covers alone to showcase her rich tone and wide range.

Sam Smith
In The Lonely Hour

Sam Smith won the BBC Sound of 2014 award, an accolade also won by Ellie Goulding. His first appearance as a singer came on Disclosure’s hit, Latch. In making his debut album In The lonely Hour, he said that he wanted to take a risk, which is probably why he allowed Zane Lowe to collaborate. In The Lonely Hour Is available on vinyl LP and CD.
