The Pure Conjecture are an indie band with a membership drawn from several old indie notables: one of Brakes, one of Electric Soft Parade, one of Tenderfoot… No Ghosts is kind of a classic pop album, with proper catchy tunes and soft-rock sonics like you might hear on an old radio station. In a really good way. No Ghosts is out on Armellodie.

Description:

The title of 21-year-old Hannah Rodgers’ first album may seem like an attempt to capitalise on the zeitgeist but, satisfyingly, is actually taken from a 1947 Auden poem about industrialisation. There’s plenty more pleasingly cliche-defying action from Pixx here — who looks like a hip south London art school student but actually went to the Brit school, and who makes ethereal electro but performs it as if she might nut you at any moment. Perhaps the most obvious touchstone for Rodgers’ crisp and airy pop is British electronica of the late 90s, with the new-agey lyrics and otherworldly sonic motifs bringing to mind Zero 7, Dubstar, Morcheeba, and, occasionally, Lemon Jelly jolliness. Yet by flitting between a low, clear vocal, and something more urgent and old-fashionedly English, which evokes both 1960s pop and Tudor carols, Rodgers manages to dodge straightforward comparisons. It makes for a riveting and refreshing debut, which balances weirdness with sweet and soothing electropop joy.

Description:

Big Black meets the Shangri-Las. Suicide fronted by Joan Jett. Pailhead vs. the Shirelles. Take your pick. Sunshine & The Rain is a duo consisting of ahusband and wife Ashley Morey (vocals, bass) and Justin Morey (guitar), both formerly of critically acclaimed psych rockers The Black Hollies. Formed around the same time as the 2014 dissolution of their former band, S&TR kicked things off with the Jesus & Mary Chain vibes of their debut 7” ”Can’t Stop Thinking About You” b/w ”Pale Blue Skies” in late 2015. In early 2016 they headed into Sonic Youth’s Echo Canyon West studio with the legendary Jon Spencer to begin work on their debut LP. Eschewing some of the more lengthy psych leanings of their earliest days, Spencer coaxed the bands towards a more immediate sound, cutting down track lengths and leaving nothing but pointed pop gems with sugary hooks and a dirty Ramones grit cutting throughout. Alongside direction from Spencer, and engineering from Grammy Award-winning engineer Ted Young, Sunsine & The Rain spent the majority of 2016 fine turning the songs that ended up on ”In The Darkness Of My Night.” From The instant gratification of singles like ”Let’s Go” and ”I’m Not Your Girl” to aggressive earworms ”Take Me Out Again” and an unexpected cover of Fugazi’s ”Merchandise,”this is a statement of a debut record that never strays from its point.

Description:

An English dream pop outfit founded in 2011 by college friends Kate Sproule and Stevie McMinn, Mt. Wolf’s atmospheric blend of chamber pop, folk, electronic, and R&B has drawn comparisons to artists like James Blake, Bat for Lashes, Bon Iver, and Beach House. Rounded out by Bassi Fox (guitar, production) and Alex Mitchell (drums), the quartet issued their debut EP, Life Size Ghosts, in 2012, followed by a second EP, Hypolight, in 2013. The band’s elegant and brooding pop confections found favor with both critics and the public, but the departure of co-founder and lead vocalist Sproule in 2014 rendered the band’s future uncertain. Mt. Wolf returned in 2015 with a new EP, Red, which relied heavily on the distinctive croon of Bassi Fox, with newcomer Alexa Harley lending her considerable pipes to a song as well. The following year saw the newly minted trio issue their fourth EP of new music, Hex. ~ James Christopher Monger
