Lucifer on the Sofa

Spoon | Matador

American rock band Spoon return to their roots on their tenth studio album. After a five-year absence, they are triumphant on Lucifer on the Sofa, as Eno’s hypnotic drums and Daniel's lyrics combine to great effect on possibly their greatest record to date.

Laurel Hell

Mitski | Dead Oceans

Synth-pop blends harmoniously with indie and electronic rock on Laurel Hell. On the Japanese-American singer-songwriters sixth studio album, Mitski delivers an emotionally charged record, full of personal turmoil, as she questions everything and everyone around her.

Give Me The Future

Bastille | Virgin EMI

Whilst also providing lots of dance-friendly, tropical pop beats, the newest record from British indie pop band Bastille, Give Me The Future, is bleak, futuristic, exciting and incredibly well layered. Their fourth studio album is a tribute to tech times and a glimpse into opportunities for the future.

Time Skiffs

Animal Collective | Domino

After a six year hiatus, Animal Collective give us everything we come to expect on Time Skiffs, their eleventh and most experimental studio album yet. With intricate rhythms, and lengthy instrumental interludes that leave you slightly spaced out, it’s a truly fascinating and surreal mix of sounds.

Ants From Up There

Black Country, New Road | Ninja Tune

British indie rockers Black Country, New Road return for their second studio album. With the pace changing at lightening speed, Ants From Up There is both engaging and compelling. Let’s hope the momentum isn’t effected by vocalist Isaac Wood’s departure, as their latest record is technically impressive and full of energy.
