Bevis Man

Ryan Adams - Ryan Adams

Ryan Adams - Ryan Adams

Thematically this is the Ryan Adams we have grown to love, all dusty highways, smoky bars and moments of gentle personal introspection.

Brian Eno & Karl Hyde - Someday World

The strongest tracks on the record are those where Eno's influence is most clearly felt.

The Hold Steady - Teeth Dreams

On the surface at least, very little has changed.

Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything

Guitar-driven stratospheric ecstasy is the order of the day and it works wonderfully.

Shearwater - Fellow Travelers

A surprisingly entertaining package.

Lanterns On The Lake - Until The Colours Run

A genuinely striking piece of work that triumphantly balances the fears of society breaking down with an unflinching will to challenge this.

RM Hubbert - Breaks & Bone

Whilst it's intrinsically filled with open-hearted sadness, the music itself is rarely overly sombre or depressive.

Au Revoir Simone - Move In Spectrums

Only die-hards are likely to press repeat.

Melt Yourself Down - Melt Yourself Down

Too uncoordinated, un-moderated and incoherent to do more than dazzle and confuse in equal proportions.

Kodaline - In A Perfect World

Let’s be frank here, what this band needs is a punch in the face and to grow some balls.

Cold War Kids - Dear Miss Lonelyhearts

The band's fourth album is largely an up and down affair.

Mogwai - A Wrenched Virile Lore

The very nature of remix albums means they are rarely cohesive as a collective whole.

Joshua James - From The Top Of Willamette Mountain

A passionately crafted third album that resonates with a desire to look to the past for inspiration.

The Twilight Sad, Dingwalls, London

Brutal, exhausting and at times genuinely terrifying.

Peter Broderick - These Walls Of Mine

Whilst such experimentation is commendable in many respects, in practise the album fails miserably.

I Like Trains - Beacons EP

The unmistakable vocals of Dave Martin remain as gripping as ever on this new five-track EP.

Beth Orton - Sugaring Season

A worthy successor to 'Comfort Of Strangers'.

Wintersleep - Hello Hum

If the band were ever guilty of anything since their conception in 2001, it is their inability to make a consistent album.

Sucioperro - Fused

There’s little room for filler on an album that is as direct and immediate as 'Fused'.
