Just two months after they put out LP Depression Cherry, the dream pop duo drop a surprise sixth album.
Claptone - Charmer
The gold bird masked, Berlin based DJ unveils a debut of smoothly produced, sophisticated house music.
Majical Cloudz - Are You Alone?
The third album from Montreal-based electronic indie pop duo Devon Welsh and Matthew Otto continues the stripped back, dimly luminous musical poetry of their debut.
Deerhunter - Fading Frontier
The ambient indie rock quartet from Atlanta release their seventh studio album - the first since the near-death of frontman Bradford Cox and their most direct, unflinching effort to date.
Raury - All We Need
Winning the praise of Kanye West and Andre 3000, the Atlanta teen's debut LP switches ceremoniously between rapping and crooning, straddling the boundaries of contemporary folk, electro, hip hop and soul.
Nothing But Thieves - Nothing But Thieves
Drawing vocal comparisons to Jeff Buckley and sound comparisons to Muse, the English five-piece deliver a bombastic, riff-laden debut album.
John Newman - Revolve
The UK crooner follows up his smash debut with an LP of chest-thumping retro-soul and disco rhythms.
BØRNS - Dopamine
Written in a Los Angeles treehouse, the Michigan-raised singer-songwriter drops a well-executed, often-whimsical synth pop debut.
Demi Lovato - Confident
Showcasing both swagger and fragility, the former Disney star's fifth album is a compelling biographical pop release.
Son Little - Son Little
Stepping away from his collaborations with The Roots and RJD2, Aaron Livingston's debut album explores different elements of vintage-soul, acoustic blues, electro and hip hop.
