Rags & Feathers - The Other Side of Morning (Lucky Number Nine) Tom Davis used to make rowdy garage blues with Dead Fly Buchowski, but this debut from his new Glasgow-based band, Rags & Feathers is an altogether gentler affair, full of lush, folky arrangements and a hint of Gram Parsons’ country sound.
Kat Flint - Dirty Birds (Albino) This Barbados-born, Scotland-raised alt-folk singer has waited tables, sewn sock puppets and told ghost stories to make ends meet while she slowly built up her music career. Expect twinkly, soulful lullabies from her debut album.
The Black Seeds - Solid Ground (Sonar Kollectiv) It seems the Kiwis can’t get enough of this funked-up reggae-dub outfit, and made their debut album a gold selling smash. A decade on, the eight-piece from Wellington, New Zealand return with more roots reggae and vintage afro-beats.
Keyboard - Choir Mizen Head to Gascanane Sound (Brainlove) These Oxford electronic prog-rockers can count Brian Eno and Foals among their growing army of fans. Don’t be put off by the mouthful of a title. Try this laptop-built debut for symphonic – slightly trippy – dream sequences of electronica.
Vessels - White Fields and Open Devices (Cuckundoo) Big metal soundscapes, and softer indie-meets-folk guitars can be found on this warm, atmospheric debut from the Leeds five-piece that have been busy supporting Caribou and Efterklang.
