The Low Anthem
The Salt Doll Went to Measure the Depths of the Sea

The Salt Doll Went To Measure The Depths Of The Sea is the fifth album by The Low Anthem. From their origins as folk revivalists through to their last album, Eyeland (2016), being wildly experimental, this is a subtle yet resolute effort that reins in the experiments. Here, they combine the folky sound of their early days with electronic instruments to produce a work that is as natural as it is visionary.

The Range
Potential

The Range is James Hinton’s project, in which he dives into the infinite space of YouTube, dragging out vocal samples and repurposing them as the centre of his euphoric electronic tracks. But don’t worry, the vocalists will get due recognition in an upcoming documentary, Superimpose. Potential is released by Domino.

The Sherlocks
Live For The Moment

Double-brother-pair four-piece and self-proclaimed ‘real band’ The Sherlocks are getting pretty big these days, with their big guitar anthems growing bigger by the day. Live For The Moment is their debut album, released after a good-sized gestation period. Punchy rock for the lads, out on Infectious Music.

The Xcerts
Hold On To Your Heart

Murray Macloed and rest of those cheeky Xcerts dig deep into the eons past, where music was a tapestry weaved through our culture, way back to our roots but equally; it was all about that first kiss. Keep pressing that single piano key all the way through the song! Bring out the big chord in the chorus! That Springsteen 80s synth and driving momentum, the unstoppable power of love! Everything is going to be alright.

Throws
Throws

Throws is the new sound of the musicians formerly known as Tunng, nigh on a decade since that project’s last album. The folkishness has mostly faded, and electronics are very much at the fore: this is almost synth-pop at times! Good to see that there is still plenty of interesting life in this resurrected creative relationship. Out on Full Time Hobby.

Tim Darcy
Saturday Night

Ought are one of our favourite bands here at the towers and much of the enjoyment we get is down to singer Tim Darcy's twangy distinctive vocals and oddball lyrical dexterity. If we thought his solo work was going to go down the weird route of his excellent tape collaboration with AJ Cornell then from early teasers this could be a surprise sounding very much like the Strokes or Parquet Courts.  

Tkay Maidza
Tkay

“Tkay” is the debut album from Australian rapper-singer Tkay Maidza, wherein she outlines her mission statement to dominate with rhythmic jams and a dextrous flow that out-MIAs MIA. The record features collaborations from Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike and Dre Skull of Mixpak. Out on Kitsune on your standard CD and vinyl, with a red coloured vinyl also available exclusively at independent stores. Like ours.

Tracyanne & Danny
Tracyanne & Danny

This is a does-what-it-says-on-the-tin collaboration between Tracey Anne Campbell of Camera Obscura and Danny Coughlan (Crybaby).  A classic get together story, they liked each other's music then decided to collaborate. This took a number of years to sort out but they hooked up at Edwyn Collins' highland studio with the great man himself producing.  

Trailer Trash Tracys
Althaea

Drifting from the standard song structure and into a much more experimental and indie sound, Trailer Trash Tracys give us their second full length on Double Six entitled Althaea. A great mix of softly sung vocals and varying genres from Japanese tropical to Latin influenced indie. Available on special edition turquoise vinyl, heavyweight black vinyl and CD.

Trentemoller
Fixion

The Danish king of erotic minimal techno is back with a sweet 2xLP. If you're anything like me, you've followed Trentemøller ever since you watched space-dog Laika take off for space in the videoclip for Moan. Now with Fixion, it’s time to get yourself another fix from one of Scandinavia's finest.

Trevor Powers
Mulberry Violence

Not to harp on about it because he's clearly moved on but Trevor Power used to make beautifully emotive dream-pop under the name Youth Lagoon. Throughout those years Power was learning more and more about different styles of music and art, and on Mulberry Violence brings together a wide variety of ideas and sounds to create something stranger and more textural than his past work. 

Tunng
Songs You Make At Night

Rather like The Great Conjunction in The Dark Crystal, Tunng’s shifting personnel have aligned once again, for the first time in many years, just as they were at the outset.. I remember them back in 2007 as shaggy-haired, semi-electronic Brit-folksters, but something’s definitely happened in the intervening years. This one sounds more like catchy psychedelic electro-pop and dance. Fab.

Tusks
Dissolve

Tusks, aka Emily Underhill, is a rising star of many talents. As producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist she if fully in control of her music, creating expansive, emotional pop from icy shards of synth, guitars and voice. Dissolve is her debut album, following on from the 2014 EP Ink. Her singular vision for her music has drawn comparisons to label-mate Bjork.

Twin Atlantic
GLA

GLA is the highly anticipated new album by popular Scottish rock four-piece Twin Atlantic. It is their fourth long-player following on from past successes Varium, Free and Great Divide. They are favourites of Radio 1’s Annie Mac and are known for hits such as Heart and Soul and Brothers and Sisters.

Various
It’s Been A Business Doing Pleasure With You

Ooooh, bet Matador were really pleased with themselves when they came up with that title. It’s Been A Business Doing Pleasure With You serves as a victory lap with which the Anglo-American label rounds out a triumphant 2013. Features tunes from Kurt Vile, Savages, Queens Of The Stone Age and many more indie big-hitters.

Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois
Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois

Well I would never have put them two together but it is definitely the former U2 and Bob Dylan producer collabing with breakcore nutcase Aaron Funk of Venetian Snares. Both are, though, Canadian and those lads stick together. Funk did the drums whilst Lanois added pedal steel and weaved the unlikely sounds together. Sure to be one of the most unique records of 2018. Looking forward to hearing the snappily titled 'HpShk5050 P127'.  

Vessels
The Great Distraction

Our next door neighbours (they rehearse next door) Leeds electronic rockers Vessels drop the big one on their fourth album by working with actual big rock stars the Flaming Lips and John Grant. This one pulls out all the stops  - a tour de force of electronic rock that should see them move far away from grimy Holbeck council blocks. Don't forget us lads.      

Viet Cong
Viet Cong

Some men from the band Women get together and put out a full length record. Viet Cong have previously released one tape and a single. They sound like Women in some parts, but Women after quite a few more drinks inside them. Lovely off kilter guitar parts wrap around tight drums (think fried out Nuggets punk), while the vocals bleed over the top. Out on limited colour LP, LP and CD.

Villagers
The Art of Pretending to Swim

The return of ol' wobble voice, Conor O' Brien has sat and made this latest Villagers record all by himself in his Dublin studio. Despite this lonesome pursuit, it's an album that adds all kinds of sonic detail and soulfulness to his songwriting resulting in possibly his most accessible music to date. There's an indie's only red vinyl version that comes with a bonus 10" (whilst stocks last of course).  

Vinyl Williams
Opal

Following a couple of LPs on Chaz Bundick’s Company and another for No Pain In Pop, the fourth album from Vinyl Williams comes courtesy of the wackily-named Requiem Pour Un Twister. Opal is a lovely psych-pop record that arrives just in time for summer. The ten tracks take in hypnagogic pop, MOR rock and chillwave alongside more conventionally psychedelic flavours. Williams’s old mate Bundick is invoked here along with Mild High Club and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

Warm Digits
Wireless World

Punchy electronic tuneage from Warm Digits, who here add vocals to some of their home electro-funky tracks for the first time. Wireless World’s guest singers range from Sarah Cracknell of Saint Etienne to Mia La Metta of Beards, not to mention a particularly Sparks-like turn from Field Music. Out on Memphis Industries.

Warpaint
Heads Up

Warpaint decide to direct their audience literally by naming the first single from their new record "New Song". Cool: the band's slow, brooding rock ascent may or may not continue on their follow-up to 2014's self-titled effort (plus Lindberg's solo LP), but the opening single has a glitching electro-pop glare and sparkly sideways riffs. So far, so different.

Wax Idols
American Tragic

Third album from Wax Idols. American Tragic finds the group, previously keen on the gothish aesthetic, going full-blown 80’s rock. Hether Fortune, who is responsible for everything we hear (save the drums) presides over each track with an icy determination in her voice. Released on the Collect label, blue vinyl only available to independent stores.

Wesley Gonzalez
Excellent Musician

Weird and wonderful experimental pop from Wesley Gonzalez, formerly of Let’s Wrestle. The process behind Excellent Musician took years of playful bedroom demos and semi-improvised them into fully-fledged songs in a deliberately hurried way, using a band unfamiliar with the material. The results are real fresh, balancing oddness with proper-popness. On Moshi Moshi.

West Thebarton
Different Beings Being Different

Australian garage rock seven-piece West Thebarton have already built up a cult following, but with the release of their storming debut album, Different Beings Being Different they hope more people will come along for the ride. Fans of Cloud Nothings and Japanroids will find plenty to like. Their lyrics, recount dark stories of Adelaide, their hometown whilst the music layers up the guitar scuzz. LP on Domestic La La.

White Denim
Performance

Imagine, if you will, a psych rock band who also enjoy the two greatest genres to grace our green planet: jazz and prog rock. Intending absolutely zero sarcasm with my last remark, I can now inform you that you need not imagine, as White Denim exist, ready-made, for your pleasure. They're back after a small time away with Performance, a hyper, rapidfire collection that best shows off their jam potential.

Wild Beasts
Last Night All My Dreams Came True

Wild Beasts, who’ve been bringing perverse arty falsetto weirdness to indie rock for more than a decade, are calling it a day. As part of their farewells they present Last Night All My Dreams Came True, a sort-of greatest hits that features new recordings of old material, recorded under live-in-the-studio conditions. They will be missed. On Domino.

William Patrick Corgan (aka Billy Corgan)
Ogilala

William Patrick Corgan is indeed the same Billy Corgan who fronted both Zwan and the Smashing Pumpkins and like a lot of fellow musicians has spent much of his later years having Twitter spats.  This first album under his full moniker was recorded by Rick Rubin and is said to be his most intimate body of work yet.

Wolf Parade
Cry Cry Cry

This first album in seven years from these reconvened indie rockers showcases their energetic brew of glam prog and synth rock with their signature rousing choruses and chaotic arrangements firmly in place. The years off seem to have given them a new lease of life resulting in an uplifting blast for uncertain times. 

Woman’s Hour
Conversations

Woman's Hour are not your average band. The first clue comes in the name of the London-based swoon-pop four-piece, taken from a beloved female-focussed news and culture show on BBC Radio 4. The second is in their graphic, striking monochrome visuals, meticulously curated in collaboration with TATE and MOMA certified fine artists Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg. These play with shape and texture, much like their powerful, iridescent music. On their excellent debut album 'Conversations', this has the intricate construction and intimacy of The xx and the iridescent shimmer of summer-defining indie pop. Pay attention now, or regret it later.

Yeasayer
Amen & Goodbye

Amen & Goodbye is the fourth album by Brooklyn’s Yeasayer. It follows up their 2012 album Fragrant World but eschews its penchant for all things digital. The lead single, I am Chemistry features vocals from Suzzy Roche of legendary folkies, The Roches. The band recorded the album to tape, it was then given some studio sparkle by Beck drummer Joey Waronker. Amen & Goodbye is unlike any of their previous work but still retains the sounds the band are known for.

Yo La Tengo
There’s A Riot Going On

I think this is as good a time as any for a new Yo La Tengo record. The world could do with a little bit of the soothing balm they put into their music. Unlike many other bands of their vintage who rely on collaboration and guest stars to ice their records, Yo La Tengo did this all themselves....and that's the way we like it.   

Yoko Ono
Fly

Secretly Canadian do the world a favour here with a set of reissues of vintage Yoko Ono albums, pushing the legendary artist and musician’s achievements back into the limelight next to her reputation. Fly is an epic opus of a double album, ably splitting the difference between Yoko’s avant-Fluxus side and her 70’s rock grooving side, with lengthy tracks like ‘Mind Train’ and ‘Fly’ going motorik-chug and full abstract-screaming respectively. Totally vita stuff. CD and vinyl editions available.

Yoko Ono
Approximately Infinite Universe

Secretly Canadian do the world a favour here with a set of reissues of vintage Yoko Ono albums, pushing the legendary artist and musicians achievements back into the limelight with her reputation. Approximately Infinite Universe is a big and bold rock album with mystic touches: Anika fans in particular should check out Ono’s original version of ‘Yang Yang’. CD and vinyl editions available.

Yoko Ono
Feeling The Space

Secretly Canadian do the world a favour here with a set of reissues of vintage Yoko Ono albums, pushing the legendary artist and musician’s achievements back into the limelight next to her reputation. Feeling The Space is an unusually subdued and smooth album of feminist songwriting, but a very successful effort from a different side of Yoko. CD and vinyl editions available.

Yung
A Youthful Dream

Though he is only young (A Youthful Dream is a fair title), it is nevertheless surprising that Mikkel Holm Silkjaer, main Yung man, has taken this long to produce a full-length album after the trail of DIY cassettes he’s left in his wake. It’s a well formed record, sounding properly produced but without losing the wild energy of the Yung. On Fat Possum.
