long players

L-Space

Kipple Arcadia (Last Night From Glasgow)

‘Dream pop’ is this quartet’s self-imposed genre, and for once the description couldn’t be more apt.



City and Colour

Guide Me Back Home (Dine Alone)

Every song here is greeted with a knowing whoop or an enthusiastic cheer.



Steven Page

Discipline: Heal Thyself, Pt. II (Fresh Baked)

It is a true refreshment to hear someone so in love with the idea of singer-songwriter as protester and voice of a generation



Richard Thompson

13 Rivers (Proper)

Round our house, a new album from Richard Thompson remains An Event.



Pale Waves

My Mind Makes Noises (Dirty Hit / Interscope))

It seems as though this album has been a long time coming.



Anna Calvi

Hunter (Domino)

…bloody hell, now that’s what I’m talking about.



Fatherson

Sum of All Your Parts (Easy Life)

Fatherson are going places – this new album, released September 14th, shows maturity and development



Idles

Joy As An Act Of Resistance (Partisan)

They may come across as the classic punk rockers, but this Bristol five-piece preach love, not destruction



Vrwrk

On The Outside (Run Tell Secrecy)

Beginning with the bass-heavy ‘Different Crowd’, this is an album that guides you through the full history of dance music



Neil and Liam Finn

Lightsleeper (PIAS)

Lightsleeper is a very soft and intimate record that has obviously been moulded around Neil (the father) and Liam (the son’s) relationship
