40: Czarface – Meets Ghostface
A smart hip-hop collaboration between Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah and Czarface.
39: Blanck Mass – Animated Violence Mild
Album three from Blanck Mass is an intense electronic ride that takes the wall of sound concept to another level. It sometimes feels like you’re listening to two tracks at the same time but if you relax your way into it, it can be very rewarding.
38: Lorelle Meets the Obsolete – De Facto
A dreamy, scuzzy pop-psych epic from this Mexican duo that grows more pleasing with each listen.
37: Chase and Status – RTRN II JUNGLE
Does exactly what it says on the sleeve. The duo’s homage to 90s jungle has some blistering tracks on it
36: Chali 2na & Krafy Kuts – Adventures Of A Reluctant Superhero
Addictive, superhero-themed hip-hop. What’s not to like?
35: Julia Kent – Temporal
An achingly beautiful neo-classical work with a smattering of electronica. Kent’s cello work pulls heavily on your heartstrings.
34: The Specials – Encore
The kings of Ska return to put the world to rights – and don’t we just need it.
33: SPC ECO – Fifteen
An indulgent combination of shoegaze and trip-hop from former Curve member Dean Garcia and his daughter.
32: Prettiest Eyes – Vol. 3
The third effort from this post-punk trio that uses a dash of psych alongside distortion galore to bring a tasty treat to our turntables.
31: Metronomy – Metronomy Forever
Cosy synth pop and some very catchy tunes combine to produce a memorable effort from these veterans of the scene.
Look out for albums 30-21 coming real soon.
