Night Moves
Pennied Days
In the era of musical Bricolage, Night Moves’ »Pennied Days« has turned out to be a mature, tasteful and, most importantly, independent record.

Animal Collective
Painting With
Animal Collective are back on track: with their new record »Painting With«, they remain faithful to their skew pop approach without being wearisome.

Hot Chip
Why Make Sense?
On »Why Make Sense?«, Hot Chip’s sixth record, a lot remains the same. However, the beats are not exclusively made by machines, anymore.

Real Estate
Atlas
There are many parallels between »Atlas« and the previous »Days«. Real Estate don’t just copy themselves but instead manage to keep up their high standards.

Omar Souleyman
Wenu Wenu
Kieran Hebden has actually managed to lure »street level Syrian and Iranian Dabke«-Omar Souleyman into the studio. He pays back the favour by making surprisingly diversified music.

Arctic Monkeys
AM
The Arctic Monkeys have matured. There’s no more in-your-face on »AM«, but instead a relaxed groove, tilting into waters of blues every now and then.

Julia Holter
Loud City Song
Julia Holter is one of the few artists who consider pop an art form. Her latest and third record, »Loud City Song«, is a revelation.

Austra
Olympia
A record perfectly produced – solid pop-music with potential towards all possible directions and Tumblr-credibility. It’s nothing for the heart, though.

Matthew E. White
Big Inner
Real emotions, profound lyrics, impressive compositions of suspense and melodies: Matthew E. White’s debut, »Big Inner«, is a revelation.

Dan Deacon
America
Dan Deacon is a man who playfully unites opposites. Now he’s releasing his eleventh record. It’s exclusively dedicated to his homeland.

Animal Collective
Centipede Hz
Animal Collective can’t really do mediocre records. At least that seemed to be the case until »Centipede Hz«. But times do change – unfortunately.

Peaking Lights
Lucifer
»Lucifer, son of the morning« is an extract from a well-known Reggae-tune. Not just the title shows the influence of Reggae and Dub on the second Peaking-Lights album.

Dirty Projectors
Swing Lo Magellan
With »Swing Lo Magellan«, David Longstreth and his Dirty Projectors are going for a new kind of comprehensibility and write songs – almost without any noticeable concept.

Hot Chip
In Our Heads
The record’s predecessors have created high expectations, which »In Our Heads« – despite being a typical Hot Chip record – cannot fulfill.

The Magnetic Fields
Love At The Bottom Of The Sea
Stephen Merrit returns to the roots of his Magnetic Fields with »Love At The Bottom Of The Sea« and proofs that he’s a magnificent storyteller.

Lower Dens
Nootropics
This album creates its own world and makes one forget that there is a world at all. Dream-Pop inspired by Kraftwerk, powered by Kraut-Rock

Bonnie »Prince« Billy
Wolfroy Goes To Town
For years, Bonnie »Prince« Billy has been releasing his music on a constantly high level. His 21st record is no exception there. Nope, really, not at all.

Real Estate
Days
One of the indie-highlights of the year? Real Estate are just drifting along and naturally carry us with them. It’s hard not to like these songs.

Abra
Turnt Up Art Kid
Abra comes with the charisma, the talent and the looks to become one of the great figures of pop. At the same time she’s bizarre enough to be love by those who hate Spotify. For a long time she was just one thing for many: too bizarre.
