Amanda Mair - Amanda Mair

It does sound rather nice, it’s just difficult to take seriously.

Bright Light Bright Light - Make Me Believe In Hope

Clever, sweet, and well thought-out.

The Rumour Said Fire - The Arrogant

The scope may not be huge, but the result is an easily accessible album from a likeable group of lads.

The Civil Wars - Barton Hollow

A joyously refreshing and heartfelt collection of original material.

Xiu Xiu - Always

Much like a pungent stilton, this is difficult prospect to recommend or advise against.

The Deer Tracks - Archer Trilogy Pt. 2

Beautiful, but sometimes lacking the punch of their earlier material.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich - Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm

An album of not only surprises, but refreshing depth.

Teitur - Let The Dog Drive Home

There is little innovation on display.

The Wombats - Anti-D

Well put together, thoughtful and a slow-burning grower of a track.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich - Pictures

If his debut album matches the quality of 'Pictures', it will be, quite simply, magnificent.

Young Buffalo - Catapilah

A sunny, enjoyable offering for fans of the band and newcomers alike.

Dog Is Dead: Not At All Dubstep

The band tell us about their new single, and the album they'll start work on in Summer.

The Streets - Going Through Hell

Certainly an unexpected tune.

Manic Steet Preachers - (It’s Not War) Just The End Of Love

It's simple, it's catchy and it's enjoyable.

Kirsty Almeida - Pure Blue Green

Certainly eccentric, but fundamentally it stands out due to its creativity and maturity.

Tweak Bird - Tweak Bird

These guys are pretty out there.
