Paul Smith & The Intimations – Contradictions

It shows a more vulnerable side to the Maxïmo Park ringleader, drawing inspiration from across the miles, combining North Easterly charm with the grit of Brooklyn’s NYC coast, showing that no matter where you’re heading or where you’ve been, life itself can be a bit of a paradox.


Gwilym Gold – A Paradise

“The ex frontman of Golden Silvers trades quirky psych-funk for something altogether more reflective and introspective, aligning himself closer to the Canterbury Scene than modern indie pop.” - Loud and Quiet


DRINKS – Hermits On Holiday

“White Fence psych rock mastermind Tim Presley and Welsh singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon have forged an unlikely partnership with DRINKS. ”  “as solo project, not a collaboration. It has one mouth, one set of lungs, one mind and four legs.”” - Consequence of Sound


Hooten Tennis Club – Highest Point in Cliff Town

“Inspired by the plug-in-and-play quasi-improvisational approach of Deerhunter and Ariel Pink, the album is the sound of the summer of adolescence slipping into the autumn of adulthood.” - Heavenly


Slim Twig – Thanks For Sticking With Twig

“For all Slim’s off-kilter aims, Thank You for Stickin’ With Twig fits right into any number of very timely pop cultural concerns. His desire to emulate and kill his idols—audibly Zappa, Beefheart, the Zombies.” - Pitchfork

GUYDMemphis Industries

The Phoenix Foundation – Give Up Your Dreams

“It’s a shrewd and vibrant reminder that in the phoenix foundation’s gloriously absurd world of technicolour pop, it’s the challenges you set yourself that reap the greatest rewards. “give up your dreams could sound like a defeat but it represents something quite defiant, joyous and celebratory” - Memphis Industries

Sweet Baboo – The Boombox Ballads

“There’s no snap, crackle, pop like that here. This is an elegant, impeccably arranged album.Sweet Baboo is more likely to throw in a joke or soar off on a flight of fancy. His romantic vision is a more playful; rain is still romantic, but it’s not a sign of sacrifice.” - Popmatters


P Money – Money Over Everyone 2

“One full of energy, power and intent – that stood out like a beacon of hope at a time of general disillusionment in 2009. That really justified the hype, painting the picture of an MC with ambitions way beyond the world he was operating in.” - FACT

Christian Rich – FW14

“The album is inspired by Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and Phillip K. After making their bones working with Drake, N.E.R.D., Chris Brown, J Cole and Earl Sweatshirt, twins Taiwo and Kehinde Hassan have recruited the next generation of R&B and rap vocalists for FW14: Vince Staples, GoldLink, JMSN, Sinead Harnett and more feature, with Slave’s Steve Arrington providing a veteran presence.” - FACT



AFX – Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008)

“Richard D James, AKA Aphex Twin, last released material as AFX on the Analord series, which ran from 2003 through 2005 on his own Rephlex label. The record will likely be more techno and electro-focused than most of the recent Aphex Twin material, with track titles like “dmx acid test” and “simple slamming b 2.”” - Resident Advisor
