"April March and Aquaserge"

There are great albums, then there are records that take you somewhere. In the case of April March and Aquaserge, it's to a '60s Paris brimming with style,spirit and seduction. It's a slow kiss amid the hustle and bustle of a Belleville patisserie, the final chapters of a Ginsberg novel read crisping in the sun on the banks of the Seine, a wine-soaked night chasing shadows down the cobbled streets of Place de la Bastille.

"The terror"

The Terror is the thirteenth studio album by experimental rock band The Flaming Lips, released on Warner Bros in the U.S. and Bella Union in the U.K. Lead vocalist Wayne Coyne described the album's general idea in a press release: "We want, or wanted, to believe that without love we would disappear, that love, somehow, would save us that, yeah, if we have love, give love and know love, we are truly alive and if there is no love, there would be no life. The Terror is, we know now, that even without love, life goes on... we just go on… there is no mercy killing."

"Silver Wilkinson"

2013 release, the first new music in two years from one of Warp's most highly respected young artists. Bibio strived for what could be called a panoramic filmic sound. A combination of what he'd already learned from the past and what he still wanted to achieve. From this mixture of years of experience and exploration of new sounds results a meditative and mature album.

"Invisible way"

How is this different from any other Low record?
- Mimi sings lead on five of the eleven songs (she usually only does one or two, despite being a fan favorite).
- Piano, lots of piano... and an acoustic guitar.
- Songs about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war, archeology, and love.

"Live with Britten Sinfonia"

Live album capturing Jaga Jazzist on stage at The Barbican with the Britten Sinfonia. The goateed attack of opener ‘One-Armed Bandit’ is such that you could be listening to Nucleus or Centipede or one of those woolly 70s British fusion groups, with due prominence given to proggy electric guitar, fuzz bass, flutes and vibes.

"You'll be safe forever"

First Locust record in 12 years! Mark Van Hoen, who made a string of influential releases as Locust on R&S records in the 1990's, all but retired the alias at the end of that decade. The record showcases prime examples of Van Hoen's compulsively hypnotic beats and abstracted pop vocals—already hallmarks of his collected work since 1993—manipulating a global variety of samples in Celemony's Melodyne software to weave a unique sonic tapestry, as inviting as it is intricate.

Rhye release their debut album Woman to much applause. A lot of mystery surrounded Rhye before their identity was discovered. Was it a solo act, a duo or a band? And they almost definitely had a lead female vocalist, one that sort of had the poise of Jessie Ware and the more timid front of Romy from The XX. But no, there is no leading lady involved in Rhye's music. It's Toronto-born producer Milosh who lends his gentle Falsetto tone to the 10-track album.
