Björk
Vulnicura

Back from Iceland, Björk is bringing another piece of her wild and crazy pop history to us. Vulnicura is released on double vinyl, in a deluxe digipack or a classic CD, but as far as we know none of the editions includes any fancy Björk swanmade dresses. We tried to make it happen, we really did.

Broadcast
Work & Non Work

The wonderful wonderful sound of Broadcast, brought back onto vinyl again at last by Warp Records. Work & Non Work compiles the singles released by the band prior to their Warp signing, and there are plenty of excellent slices of their alternate universe pop sound here: a universe that is at once shiny future and eerie past. Includes download code.

Carlton Melton / Kandodo 3
Split

Get spacey with the latest release from Carlton Melton, those well-regarded purveyors of stretched-out psych-rock jams. They take three tracks of this 12” split: the other side belongs to kandodo 3, a spin-off from The Heads, taking an even more spaced approach to music than the mother-band do. On Creepy Crawl.

Courtney Barnett
Sometimes I Sit And Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit

Sometimes I Sit And Think And Sometimes I Just Sit is the debut album by Australian singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett. It follows on from the brilliant Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas which was released in 2013. Filled with lyrically sharp, catchy songs, this album confirms Courtney Barnett as a genuinely brilliant and unique artist.

Darren Hayman
Chants for Socialists

This record is inspired by finding a leaflet written by William Morris, mainly famous for his interior designs, although he did a plethora of things, and whose house you can visit in north London for a good day out. It's entitled Chants for Socialists. Here, Darren Hayman puts them to music with the help of some of the Walthamstow locals to singalong. Intended as a comfort to ageing lefties, Chants for Socialists is a warm, swaying collection of folk type songs which create a sense of community within its melodies.

Sold out - sorry!

Ekoplekz
Entropik EP

Tough and twisty analogue rhythms combine with heavy drones in the latest from Bristol’s Ekoplekz (a.k.a Nick Edwards). The Beltram referencing Entropik EP boasts two side long tracks stretching over 10 minutes each and building into melodic lo-fi conceptual symphonies. Out on 12” vinyl from Planet Mu.

Fawn Spots
From Safer Place

Fast incredulous punks Fawn Spots take a spot on the floor and listen to the sounds of Husker Du and their likes, hoping one day they can make something half as punx. Forward however many years and From Safer Place tears things up in all the right ways, maintaining that screeching, unfiltered energy but tempering it with honest-to-god pop music.

Ghostpoet
Shedding Skin

In football terms Ghostpoet has gone from mid-table Championship to nailed on Champions League place with this, his third record. In short: he's really upped his game. Where previous records were interesting but a little niche, Ghostpoet has now made a record everyone can enjoy. It's bold, it's bright, it's tuneful. With a background in UK hip hop, this album uses those influences and marries them to the best bits of forward thinking indie (say, Radiohead, TV on the Radio). Looking forward to it.

Idlewild
Everything Ever Written

Scottish indie rockers Idlewild started off as punks, shifted to alt-rock and spent their final days crafting pastoral folk records about Scottish islands and tortured romances. After that, frontman Roddy Woomble struck out as an acoustic act, leaving the band in deep hibernation. Now, they're back, with a follow-up to Post-Electric Blues that stitches together each incarnation of the band's sound. Fittingly, it's called Everything Ever Written. Expect heart-throbs and lyrics that don't make any sense, and are all the better for it.

S. Carey
Supermoon

Absorbing all the natural spirituality with S. Carey. Supermoon is the new EP from the Wisconsin based musician. This EP features some reworks of previously released tunes and a cover. It's full of his trade mark ethereal croon, accompanied by himself on piano with some other bits and bobs. If you are a breaded indie fan then this will not disappoint. Out on vinyl LP from Jagjaguwar.

The Amazing
Picture You

The Amazing's nine minute "Picture You" sounds like a blissed-out, stretched version of Real Estate, trying to keep hold of the pleasantness of living for as long as it can. On the record of the same name, the band navigate warm bass tones with interspersing guitar riffs, post-rock asides and warming keyboards. It's a meandering slab of indie rock that's as soothing as it is epic.

The Prodigy
The Day Is My Enemy

The Day Is My Enemy is the new album by The Prodigy. It’s an album for people who like The Prodigy, like Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe who saw fit to award his accolade of Hottest Record In The World to the typically uncompromising new single, Nasty. Today Is My Enemy is available on triple vinyl LP box set, double vinyl LP and CD. Both vinyl versions come with download code.

Travis Bretzer
Waxing Romantic

There's already one Mac Demarco out there, creating great records and causing chaos in the live arena. From the sounds of the opening track here, we have another. It's identikit. However Travis proves he has more in his locker with some sweet '80s influenced jangle pop that nods towards Orange Juice and maybe Felt. Depending on how it grows this could be this years jangly summery treat.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Multi-Love

Some twenty first century scorn from Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Multi-Love is the next instalment from the art-pop freaks. This one is full of Ruban Nielson's dreamy croon, swaying synthesisers and grooved out bass & drums. It sounds like Steely Dan, Tame Impala and Deerhunter somehow collaborated in New Zealand. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Jagjaguwar.
