Recommended Albums


PS I Love You – Meet Me At The Muster Station (Paperbag Records)

People who think guitar music is dead clearly haven’t listened to PS I Love You yet.

Gang Gang Dance – Eye Contact (4AD)

It’s almost like taking a rocket trip around world music, but Gang Gang Dance inject enough musical ambition to make this journey sound edgy

Thee Oh Sees – Castlemania (In The Red)

Castlemania is a very strong album with few flaws and it becomes even more impressive when you consider the rapidity at which the band releases new records

Friendly Fires – Pala (XL Recordings)

Like a delicious mash-up of dance-pop synths, 1990s r’n'b and basslines to make your insides shudder.

Tyler, The Creator – Goblin (XL Recordings)

This is Tyler, the Creator’s dark twisted fantasy, a complicated and conflicted listen for OFWGKTA’s cult following

Cults – Cults (In The Name Of/Columbia)

Let’s just hope they keep this form for their next release and they are not watered down by their new boss.

Okkervil River – I Am Very Far (Jagjaguwar)

They have undoubtedly put the hard yards in, so should they start to reap the benefits?

Wild Beasts – Smother (Domino Records)

Contender for one of the top albums of the year? It’s early days yet, but let’s not rule anything out.

Alexi Murdoch – Towards The Sun (City Slang)

Alexi Murdoch is an unlikely superstar, but just a few years ago he was knocking on the door of stardom like a shy child asking next door for his ball back.

Jamie Woon – Mirrorwriting (Polydor/Candent)

What makes Jamie Woon stand out from the competition, bar his captivating soulful vocals, is the human touch that he brings to proceedings.
