King Khan and The Shrines - The Supreme Genius of King Khan and The Shrines (VICE Records) VICE records continue to expand their impressive repertoire with this Berlin-based psych-soul nine-piece. The ecstatic presence of front man King Khan shines through nicely.
Go:Audio - Made Up Stories (Epic Records Energetic, infectious pop-punk that bristles with heartfelt lyrics and chant-ready choruses. Sure to be gracing the lips of the post-Fall Out Boy crowd by Christmas.
Sneaky Sound System - Sneaky Sound System (Whack Recordings) This Antipodean electro outfit cross the bridge between Chromeo and Simian Mobile Disco. Endorsed by some gold-standard quality acts, this is a sign of bigger things to come.
Milosh - iii (!K7) A warmly textured record from thoughtful leftfield artist Michael Milosh. While perhaps a little too laid back for its own good, this should soundtrack many a post-rave chillaxing session.
Little Jackie - The Stoop (Parlophone) Imani Coppola and songwriter Adam Pallin return with this bad-natured – the lead single is ‘The World Should Revolve Around Me’ – but catchy collection of honey-soaked R & B.
Keyboard Choir - Mizen Head To Gascanane Sound (Brainlove Records) Cerebral electronica from this sextet from Oxford. Well known for their fearsome live show, in this record they pitch nicely between Boards of Canada dreaminess and more visceral grooves.
