Recommended Albums


Mazes – A Thousand Heys (Fat Cat) 11/04/2011

Although, all but 4 songs clock in at way less than 3 minutes, it is hard to not be sucked in by the glowing joyfulness of this record

Katy B – On A Mission (Rinse) 04/04/2011

When Katy B released her debut single ‘Katy On A Mission’ she was tagged as the artist to bring dubstep to a mainstream audience.

Cold Cave – Cherish The Light Years (4AD)

Their latest release is an altogether impressive piece, merging several musical values in a manner that is skilful and appealing

Dutch Uncles – Cadenza (Memphis Industries)

Dutch Uncles are clearly not afraid to show off their musical prowess on this album, which is to be applauded.

The Kills – Blood Pressures (Domino)

It was going to be interesting to see if the connectivity of the duo was still as strong on Blood Pressures as it was on the earlier releases.

Metronomy – The English Riviera (Becuase Music/Warner)

This could be the album that propels Metronomy into the mainstream, it feels almost wrong to hide them away for much longer.

The Dears – Degeneration Street (Dangerbird)

It’s easy to compare lead singer Murray Lightburn to a Canadian Morrissey and there are also similar sounds to Blur frontman Damon Albarn

Wye Oak – Civilian (Merge Records/City Slang)

What summer would sound like if it were feeling somehow both bright and melancholy.

Connan Mockasin – Forever Dolphin Love (Phantasy/ Because)

A lot better then Dizzee releasing the same record three times because he just made a track your nan might like.

Elbow – Build A Rocket Boys! (Fiction)

Build A Rocket Boys! is, well, a rocket and picking holes in this work really would be an unnecessary distraction
