40 WINKS - IT’S THE TRIP
Subtle, sample-saturated electronica and turntablism of the highest order - it’s a trip worth taking.
LITTLE ROY - BATTLE FOR SEATTLE
Reggae revisions of Nirvana classics that I defy anyone not to smile at each and every time they listen.
PHAELAH - THE COLD IN YOU
Orchestral dubstep which, unlike most po-faced exponents of the genre, ultimately leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy.
RIVAL SCHOOLS - PEDALS
AWOL for far too long, rockers Rival School’s returned with a tweaked sound but no compromises in quality.
TOM VEK - LEISURE SEIZURE
Half a decade since his debut album, Tom Vek’s brilliance hasn’t diminished. For me the finest pop album made this year - if only it were more popular!
