Alex Turner
Submarine (Original Songs)

Submarine was the debut film from actor and director Richard Ayoade. The coming of age drama was a perfect vehicle for a soundtrack by Arctic Monkeys Alex Turner. Showcasing a more mature and reflective side to his songwriting, these six mostly acoustic offerings point the way towards his future work as part of the Last Shadow Puppets. As always lyrically dextrous, this is an overlooked but essential part of his back catalogue.

Sold out - sorry!

Arctic Monkeys
Whatever People Say I Am

Debut album from Los Angeles' neé Sheffield's finest from back when they were four scrappy kids with big fringes, before the smart shirts and slicked back hair. Even now the young Alex Turner's lyrics are genuinely impressive in how vivid a vision of the People's Republic of South Yorkshire they can create. 

Bat For Lashes
The Bride

Sold out - sorry!

Bon Iver
22, A Million

That isolated cabin in the woods feels a long way away now: Justin Vernon’s Bon Iver seem to have made new album 22, A Million in a cabin in the internet instead. Lots of auto-tune, lo-fi crunch next to high-fi shimmer, and track titles to trump any vaporwave you could throw at it. Take your pick of CD, cassette tape or vinyl editions: there is even a deluxe LP edition with a bonus 12” of extended versions. On Jagjaguwar

David Bowie
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars needs no introduction, being one of the best-known albums of an enormous cultural icon. This release uses the 2012 remastered versions of the tracks.

Leonard Cohen
You Want It Darker

Released prior to his recent and extremely sad death, this is novelist-gone-songwriter Leonard Cohen's 14th studio album. You Want It Darker is not a question, and that is made very clear with the minimal title track having a low ominous choir and an imposing Cohen sounding closer to Laibach’s Milan Fras’ broken baritone monologues than a lounge crooner.

Massive Attack
Mezzanine

Sold out - sorry!

Miles Davis
Bitches Brew

'Bitches Brew' is a jazz standard living outside of jazz standards, believed to be one of the best ever made. 'Bitches Brew' is recommended for fans of improvisation and weird compositional stories (Davis "arranged his band in a semi-circle" and conducted them vaguely - sounds like he might have heard 'Trout Mask Replica' once or twice). Perhaps the most experimental of Davis' works.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Skeleton Tree

The subject of a much-anticipated forthcoming documentary by Andrew Dominik, 'Skeleton Tree' is the latest offering from much-revered Aussie dark overlord Nick Cave and his inimitable Black Seeds. Hot on the heels of 2013's critically acclaimed 'Push the Sky Away', this new work will no doubt delight Cave's many admirers. Released the day after the film, the mood of the record will no doubt touch on its themes.

Nick Drake
Pink Moon

Pretty much one of the most beautiful albums ever made. Just Nick, his ever fluid guitar playing, husky voice and on one track, a slither of piano. Listen to it late at night, on the headphones and admire the wonderful natural way the album was recorded. The songs are exquisite, odd at times, soothing at others. To me, the best Nick Drake album more because what isn't on it than what is.

Portishead
Dummy

Originally released in 1994, Portishead's first record 'Dummy' is a collection of dark and sonorous electronic tunes inspired by rock music , jazz and hip-hop alike. 'Dummy' helped synthesize a new sound that became essential to the Bristol scene, coinciding with bands such as Massive Attack to put West Country trip-hop on the map. It also garnered a few hits, including "Numb" and "Glory Box".

Radiohead
Kid A

Kid A is still Radiohead's most challenging album and the furthest they've headed into electronic textures but it's all the better for it. The band channelled the sounds they were hearing on records by the likes of Autechre and applied them to their own sound. Such a different beast from OK Computer but a very innovative and important record.  

Radiohead
A Moon Shaped Pool

Hello. Thom. It's me. The Radioheadmaster. Your teachers and I are all becoming a little concerned with your workrate. We all agree you're spending a little too much time on BitTorrent and not enough time on your studies. As such we're decided it's best you repeat the fourth grade -- I trust a second attempt at "True Love Waits", "Identikit" and "Desert Island Disk" won't be asking too much. Now please stop looking pensively at your shoes and get to English Lit. What's that? "A Moon Shaped Pool"? You're expelled.

Saint Etienne
A Glimpse of Stocking

Sold out - sorry!

The Avalanches
Wildflower

Not many bands allow sixteen years to pass between their debut album and the follow-up, but Aussie electro-trip hop outfit The Avalanches aren't like many bands. Highly acclaimed first LP 'Since I Left You' attracted a lot of attention, and fans of the band (now sixteen whole years older) will no doubt be frothing at the mouth at the prospect of this unexpected renaissance. Lead track 'Frankie Sinatra' is a killer Vaudeville-inspired nutfest.

The Kinks
The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society

The defining statement for the Davies brothers and their rotating cast of players, The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society is a precursor to all varieties of twee pop, folk rock and psychedelia, an instructive textbook in saccharine song-writing and sugar-laced guitar melodies. The Kinks had a unanimously agreed-upon classic, and this is it -- because it's the one that makes us all smile the hardest.

The Stone Roses
The Stone Roses

The Stones Roses eponymous debut is widely regarded as essential by many fans and critics. It was originally released in 1989 and was central to the Madchester movement of the late 80s and early 90s. In retrospect, it's not only a classic and iconic alternative rock record that entered the mainstream, but also a solid entry into the British psychedelic rock hall of fame.

Thee Oh Sees
An Odd Entrances

Thee Oh Sees take a slight break from their constant forward motion by adding something to a previous release: An Odd Entrances is to be considered as a sister album to A Weird Exits. Dwyer and co here explore the flipside to their usual frantic garage thrashings, with a set of calmer tracks full of cellos and flutes. Gorgeous as ever of course. On Castle Face, naturally.
