Another artist who is finally getting the attention he deserves.

Trying desperately hard to get into the new Algiers album but it's basically the same as the first album except a lot noisier and messier. Sounds much better with headphones on than out of speakers but even so, the album doesn't really go anywhere new in a genre that has been so overdone of late that the novelty wears thin very quickly.

Another album that's difficult to pigeon-hole. She's described as an experimental folk singer but you'll find lots of mainstream sounding pop amongst the more esoteric tracks. Despite being out there it never sounds self-indulgent and there's a lovely retro feel to the production. It's also got a bit of a jazzy feel to it but very much in a good way.
Sonic Youth frontman takes no prisoners with this very awesome album. Just 7 songs but only one coming in under 6 minutes and a couple are over 10 mins long. Lots of very long, very guitar heavy solos with the emphasis on rock. This will put a big smile on any shoegaze fans but also those who appreciate a slightly more nuanced guitar plucking as both styles are evident.

UNKLE has a new album soon with lots of A-list collaborators, this is the first release featuring Mark Lanegan and Eska. It's "very" UNKLE-sounding so have high hopes for the rest of the album.
