  1. Cherry Ghost - Beneath This Burning Shoreline (Heavenly)

    Cherry Ghost - Beneath This Burning Shoreline (Heavenly)

    You can see why they picked up an Ivor Novello song writing gong for the way they mesh a sense of laidback grandeur with crowd-singalong tunes

  2. Mantler - Monody (Tin Angel)

    Mantler - Monody (Tin Angel)

    Vocal chords that send shivers up your spine set to a musical backdrop that oozes a sort of sun-drenched West Coast vibe

  3. Black Soul Strangers - Animate (Squeek)

    Black Soul Strangers - Animate (Squeek)

    Cats and Cats and Cats - If I’d Had An Atlas (Function)

    Blondes - Touched (Merok)

  7. Black Helicopter - Don’t Fuck With The Apocalypse (Ecstatic Peace!)

    Black Helicopter - Don’t Fuck With The Apocalypse (Ecstatic Peace!)

    Perhaps if they focused a little less on the golden days, or East Prussian offensives, they might just have something worth listening to

  9. Tesla Boy - Modern Thrills (Mullet)

    Tesla Boy - Modern Thrills (Mullet)

    Russian 80's synths make us need to change our pants after one heck of a hot session.

    Tobacco - Maniac Meat (Anticon)

    Dirt, derogation, depravation: Bearded put on gloves while listening to Tobacco's latest record.
