Choir Of Young Believers - This Is For The White In Your Eyes
(Ghostly International)

An orchestral-pop project marked by magisterial melodies, dark lyrical concerns, and a healthy dose of cathedral-grade reverb.
“Choir Of Young Believers sound just as earnest and grandiose as their name suggests” – Pitchfork

Download 'Next Summer'


Raz Ohara and The Odd Orchestra - II
(Get Physical)

Raz Ohara and his Odd Orchestra return for their second album for Get Physical, II. It’s a warm, organic collection of avant-garde, open-hearted pop music ; a forest of pleasures and possibilities which you’ll want to lose yourself in indefinitely.

Download 'Miracle'


Julien Dyne - Pins & Digits

Pins & Digits is the debut release from Julien Dyne. This talented drummer & beatmaker from New Zealand has produced & remixed tracks for the likes of Fat Freddys Drop & Dj Vadim. Imagine Flying Lotus meets Madlib in a 70's US cop show..

Download 'Steel Legs'


Sisters Of Transistors - At The Ferranti Institute
(This Is Music)

Sisters of Transistors call themselves the UK’s Premier Combo Organ Quartet and Ladies Social Club. It's hard to talk about their sound with out referencing artists as diverse as Goblin, Ennio Morricone, The Shangri Las, Manuel Gottsching and the B52s.

Download 'Solar Disco'


Jimi Tenor/Tony Allen - Inspiration Information 4

Head to head between Finnish maverick Jimi Tenor & Afrobeat drumming legend, Tony Allen. A raw & heavy analogue sound, mixing the full range of Allen’s Afrobeat repertoire with Tenor’s off-kilter brew of dark humour, tongue-in-cheek lyrics & tight, firing musicianship.

Download 'Selfish Gene'


The Antlers - Hospice

Destined to be one of the year’s most talked-about new bands. "Hospice" is a heart-wrenching meditation on love and loss, a ‘skyscraping blend of the ambient and the anthemic’ - Pitchfork

Download 'Two'


Memory Tapes - Seek Magic
(Something In Construction)

Huge acclaim from the big US blogs, Radio1. Guardian, Uncut, NME ( "victory is assured"). This beautiful "achingly gorgeous dance pop". (Pitchfork, 8.3) is "one of 2009's most satisfying albums". A brilliant debut album from a very bright new star.

Download 'Bicycle'


Annie - Don't Stop
(Smalltown Supersound)

Norwegian Cool-Pop postergirl Annie throws down her brand new album ‘Don’t Stop’ on Smalltown Supersound. A collection of sublime hooks stirred into a melting pot of blazing pop beats, singalong choruses and some odd, twisted darkness. ‘Don’t Stop’ is the pop sound of now!

Download 'I Don't Like Your Band'


Invasion - The Master Alchemist
(This Is Music)

Invasion's debut album, a synapse shredding twenty one minute assault of psych-soul metal.
"A landmark British heavy metal album... nothing short of a masterpiece” - The Music Fix
"Pretty much the most exciting thing happening in UK metal right now" – NME

Download 'Spells Of Deception'


Espers - III

For their third album, Espers aim for a lighter, brighter sound than the dense and dark sounds of "II". Essential for fans of "II" whilst potentially appealing to a broader set of listeners, this is still uniquely Espers. See them on the third Shred Yr Face tour in November.

Download 'Caroline'


Bad Lieutenant - Never Cry Another Tear
(Triple Echo)

“New Blood” - Artrocker
“Saviours of new wave electronica punk funk” - DJ Magazine
“Ones to Watch” - Clash Magazine

Download 'Low'


The Bloody Beatroots - Romborama
(Dim Mak/Cooperative)

Close your eyes and imagine, if you will, the bastard son of the Misfits and Daft Punk. As gruesome as the act of conception may appear, the union would generate the most grandiose of offspring. A formidable force, not unlike the Bloody Beetroots.
