The Hold Steady Separation Sunday/Almost Killed Me The band who have produced the best album of 2007 so far finally get their first two albums issued here, the first of which, Separation Sunday, is arguably better than their latest, Girls and Boys of America. Yes it’s that good. (Full-time Hobby)

Feist The Reminder The one-time member of Broken Social Scene strikes out on her own with a collection which sways and swells between trippy sweetness and bare bones singer-songwriter folk. (Polydor)

The Pigeon Detectives Wait for Me The truly terrible band name masks a group of insanely perky people intent on converting us with their endlessly cheery, itchy, sub-Supergrass jangle. (Dance to the Radio)

Mutya Buena Real Girl Could she be the first post-Sugababes success story? The single is pretty good and this is more understated, electro-pop that takes itself a bit too seriously but is well worth a listen. (Island)

Ciara The Evolution Every once in a while the decidedly patchy world of US R&B produces a totally addictive gem. Way too long by a mile but the good stuff is great. (La Face)
