20: Sarathy Korwar – More Arriving
Thought-provoking, jazzy dub and electronica with a distinct Asian flavour.
19: slowthai – Nothing Great About Britain
Punky grime from Northampton’s finest Tyron Frampton. This debut fulfills the promise shown in earlier EPs
18: DiiV – Deceiver
Classic, sumptuous shoegaze from this Brooklyn band. Something to shake your curtain hairstyle to.
17: The Twilight Sad – It Won/t Be Like This All The Time
An emotive indie-rock post-punk opus dipped in a good helping of 80s synth.
16: Balthazar – Fever
Funky, melodic guitar pop that nuzzles it’s way into your brain.
15: The St Pierre Snake Invasion – Caprice Enchanté
Riotous, affecting and heavy as hell punk that pounds you into joyous submission.
14: W.H. Lung – Incidental Music
Electronic-heavy indie pop that fans of last year’s storming TVAM album will most certainly enjoy.
13: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Infest The Rats’ Nest
The band’s tribute to 80s Bay-area thrash metal and one of their most enjoyable works. Like slipping on an old pair of comfy slippers for me.
12: Warmduscher – Tainted Lunch
Fun and sleazy rock ‘n roll. A fantastic follow up to last year’s Whale City. Guest contribution from Iggy Pop too.
11: black midi – Schlagenheim
Sometimes bizarre, but utterly rewarding post-punk. An album that requires active listening.
Things are starting to get interesting now. Next up: 10-6
