Recommended Albums

Mac DeMarco – 2

Although there isn’t much variety on the album, Mac DeMarco sticks to a genre that fits him like a glove  

How To Dress Well – Total Loss (Weird World)

Total Loss is one of them albums that will pull at your heartstrings and maybe toss up a few old memories whilst it’s playing as well.

Frightened Rabbit – State Hospital (Atlantic)

Whilst making their last album there were still a few gems that the band felt needed to be aired rather than hidden for a box set for the band’s 20th anniversary.

David Byrne & St. Vincent – Love This Giant

On this new endeavor, he has teamed up with fellow New York heavyweight St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Clark) to create a remarkably exceptional new album

Dinosaur Jr. – I Bet On Sky (PIAS)

This is arguably the band’s best work in well over a decade and one of 2012’s best rock albums.

Purity Ring – Shrines (4AD)

A dark and haunting force which you shouldn’t be too scared to embrace.

Dirty Projectors – Swing Lo Magellan (Domino)

Swing Lo Magellan is surely Dirty Projectors most outstanding and focused record to date

Bobby Womack – The Bravest Man In The Universe (XL)

Rarely has a soul artist successfully married his own genre with electronic music, so for a 68-year-old soul artist to do it with his comeback effort is remarkable.

The Tallest Man On Earth – There’s No Leaving Now (Dead Oceans)

Stick a pin in the map halfway between Nick Drake and Bob Dylan and you’ll find Kristian Matsson, the ecletic Swedish folksinger also known as The Tallest Man On Earth

ILLLS – Dark Paradise EP (The Sounds of Sweet Nothing)

How two boys from Mississippi are serving up meaty riffs alongside sensitive lyrical introspection in their introductory EP.
