Badbadnotgood - Thee Oh Sees

Badbadnotgood - IV Artist Badbadnotgood
Title IV [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Andrew]
Label Innovative Leisure
BadBadNotGood is the talented young quartet of Matthew Tavares on keys, Chester Hansen on bass, Alex Sowinski on drums & Leland Whitty on saxophone. They formed and became inseparable friends at Humber College’s Music Performance program in 2011 and have been on a critically acclaimed, rule bending musical journey ever since. BBNG took the music world by storm with their 2014 LP, ’III’, a brash yet refined record of angular jazz improvisations, lush ballads, krautrock and futuristic hip-hop tinged rhythms which led to a couple years of touring the world and collaborating with some of the best and brightest artists around the globe.

The boys are back with the new album ’IV’, their most impressive and highly anticipated project yet. IV continues their forward thinking progression, sounding something like a jam session in space between Can, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters, Weather Report, Arthur Russell and MF DOOM.

Barwick, Juliana - Will Artist Juliana Barwick
Title Will [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Andrew]
Label Dead Oceans
Julianna Barwick’s revelatory third album, ‘Will’, is the Brooklyn experimental artist’s most surprising left turn to date. Conceived and self-produced over the past year in a variety of locations, the compelling ‘Will’ departs from the weighty lightness of 2013’s ‘Nepenthe’. 

The beguiling, beautifully complicated ‘Will’ is the latest proof yet of Barwick’s irresistibly engaging talent as a composer and vocalist. 

Julianna has recently collaborated with Moog and MoMa, lending her prestige as both a musician and artist as a whole.

Car Seat Headrest - Teens Of Denial Artist Car Seat Headrest
Title Teens Of Denial [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Andrew]
Label Matador
Teens of Denial is the thirteenth album in Car Seat Headrest’s (aka 23-year-old Will Toledo) oeuvre, second on Matador, and first to be recorded in a proper studio with a full band and producer (Steve Fisk). 
On Denial, Toledo moves from bedroom pop to something approaching classic-rock grandeur and huge (if detailed and personal) narrative ambitions, with nods to the Cars, Pavement, Jonathan Richman, Wire, and William Onyeabor. By turns tender and caustic, empathetic and solipsistic, literary and vernacular, profound and profane, self-loathing and self-aggrandizing, he conjures a specifically 21st century mindset, a product of information overload, the loneliness it can foster, and the escape music can provide.

Cats Eyes - Treasure House Artist Cat's Eyes
Title Treasure House [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Graf]
Label RAF
If Cat’s Eyes self-titled debut was grown in the dark, then Treasure House, their second, is born in light.  If the nocturnal interiors of Cat’s Eyes were a cult flick viewed in smudgy black and white on cathode ray, then Treasure House takes everything into the great outdoors and shoots it in Technicolor on wide silver-screen; an old school blockbuster, of the kind they no longer make.
 
This is the third album by  Rachel Zeffira & Faris Badwan (including the soundtrack to Peter Strickland’s film, ’The Duke of Burgundy’.)

Departures - Death Touches Us, From The Moment We Begin To Love Artist Deaprtures
Title Death Touches Us, From The Moment We Begin To Love [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Ade]
Label Holy Roar
At this point Departures might be considered almost stalwarts of the UK hardcore scene. 
Death Touches Us, From The Moment We Begin To Love streamlines, crystallizes and solidifies Departures’ already achingly melodic post-hardcore sound into something truly formidable. Existing fans of the band will not be disappointed, whilst new ears will be treated to a record that blurs the line between high-energy alternative/indie and emotional post-hardcore. Unencumbered by any pressure apart from that they impose upon themselves, Departures are not a ’careerist’ band. A cathartic experience for both band and listener, they write music and play live when the need calls. A valuable entity in a sea of bands desperate to play industry games, all of Departures success and achievements to date have been won the old-fashioned way: simply with great music.

’Is The Is Are’, the highly-anticipated sophomore release from Brooklyn-based DIIV, is an album years and many personal struggles in the making for it’s architect, Zachary Cole Smith. Recorded and mixed in various locations in Brooklyn, it showcases everything you know and love about DIIV, and many things you did not, all with an added nuance and depth.

Goat - Requiem Artist Goat
Title Requiem [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Graf]
Label Rocket
For crate diggers and guitar mystics, Sweden’s enigmatic GOAT may qualify as the greatest modern pop-culture mystery. Who are these masked musicians? Are they truly members of the Arctic community of Korpilombolo? Are their songs part of their isolated communal heritage? Their third studio album, Requiem, offers more questions than answers.
GOAT’s only outright declaration for Requiem is that it is their “folk” album, and the album is focused more on their subdued bucolic ritualism than psilocybin freakouts. But GOAT hasn’t completely foregone their fiery charms—tracks like “All-Seeing Eye” and “Goatfuzz” conjure the sultry heathen pulsations that ensnared us on their previous albums.

Goldmann, Vivien - Resolutionary Artist Vivien Goldman
Title Resolutionary [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Ashli]
Label Staubgold
Ever since she migrated from pitching editors on the little-known music of Robert Nesta Marley to becoming one of the foremost chroniclers of the perfect storm of reggae, punk, hip hop and afro-beat, the London-born, New York-based Goldman has made documenting music her primary life work. But between 1979-82, Goldman was also a working musician, creating songs that, years later, would be sampled by The Roots and Madlib. These rare grooves are now collected for the first time on ’Resolutionary’, courtesy of Staubgold Records. 
’Resolutionary’ takes us through Vivien’s first three musical formations: first as a member of experimental new wavers The Flying Lizards; next as a solo artist, with her single "Launderette," featuring post-punk luminaries; and then as half of the Parisian duo Chantage, with Afro-Parisian chanteuse Eve Blouin. Goldman’s synthesis of post-colonial rhythms and experimental sounds are threaded together by her canary vocal tones and female-centred themes. Her eclectic musical crew included PiL’s John Lydon, Keith Levene and Bruce Smith; avantgardists Steve Beresford and David Toop; Aswad’s George Oban: The Raincoats’ Vicky Aspinall; the mighty Robert Wyatt; Zaire’s Jerry Malekani; Manu Dibango’s guitarist; and Viv Albertine, then of her good friends, the Slits. The majority of the tracks were produced by dubmaster Adrian Sherwood.

Label Rekords Rekords
The first Iggy Pop album co-created with producer / guitarist / songwriter / multi-instrumentalist / bandleader Homme, Post Pop Depression began with a succinctly worded text from Iggy to Joshua, and was realized in seclusion with Homme’s enlisted aid of his Queens Of The Stone Age bandmate and Dead Weather-man Dean Fertitia and Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders. Both became instantly integral in creating and shaping the Detroit meets Palm Desert by way of old Berlin vibe.

Title 2013 [WMP16 - WINNER!] [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Graf, Ade & Ashli]
Label Moshi Moshi
WELSH MUSIC PRIZE WINNER 2016!


Moshi Moshi records are thrilled to announce the release of 2013, the debut album of MEILYR JONES.
“I conceived of the record as a compilation of myself, over the period of a year,” says Meilyr Jones. “As an anthology, a collection of my songs and of what happened to me in that year.” The year in question was 2013, a curious time in Jones’s life, when the weeks were scored by loss and pleasure and revelation, and when he made a short but transformative trip to Rome, drawn by a fascination with sculpture and Byron and Berlioz, and by a desire “to see something new and different.”

King Creosote - Astronaut Meets Appleman Artist King Creosote
Title Astronaut Meets Appleman [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Ashli]
Label Domino
King Creosote, one of our most beloved voices, returns with his new record Astronaut Meets Appleman. It explores the tension and harmony between tradition and technology – between analogue and digital philosophies – and also invokes a feeling, King Creosote (otherwise known as Fife’s Kenny Anderson) says, of “being caught between heaven and earth”. 
The KC idiom – equal parts geometry, self-deprecation, cosmic wonder and seafaring poetry – remains intact on the forthcoming album, as does his knack for a killer couplet (see drive-pop calypso ‘Love Life’: “Her jealous accusations know no bounds / Scarlett Johansson was never in my house”). But there is a renewed sense of space and letting the music breathe (lead, even) on the album – all the better to showcase a stunning ensemble cast.

Martha - Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart Artist Martha
Title Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 Ade & Graf]
Label Fortuna Pop!
Martha return with their second album. Produced again by MJ from Hookworms, the album explores the difficulties in staying political, staying passionate and staying punk over the course of eleven expertly crafted pop songs. Hailing from Pity Me near Durham, Martha play energetic, impassioned power pop with intricate vocal interplay and lush four-part harmonies, informed by 90s indie rock and contemporary garage punk. The band is comprised of J. Cairns (guitar), Daniel Ellis (guitar), Naomi Griffin (bass), and Nathan Stephens Griffin (drums). All four members sing and write the songs. Daniel and Nathan also play in Onsind, while Naomi also plays in No Ditching.

If the band’s first album, ’Courting Strong’, was about punks growing up, then ’Blisters In The Pit Of My Heart’ is about grown-ups staying punk. It’s an album about trying to stay creative and passionate and making the most of everything in spite of the many obstacles that get in the way.

Delving into Mexico’s unlikely obsession for all-things-Morrissey, Mexico City-based DJ and producer Camilo Lara, founder of the electronic music project Mexican Institute of Sound (M.I.S.), together with bandleader Sergio Mendoza (Orkesta Mendoza/Calexico) has assembled a super-group of Mexico’s leading contemporary musicians, paying homage to the iconic Smiths frontman. 
Through M.I.S., Lara has developed a reputation for blending traditional music with more modern sounds and with this project he explores the relationship between Mexico and Morrissey, reinventing his work with brass, accordion and other Mexican elements. His songs of love, loss and longing, with powerful imagery and metaphors have found a huge audience and chimed with generations raised on rancheras and mariachis.

Nothing - Tired Of Tomorrow Artist Nothing
Title Tired Of Tomorrow [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Ade]
Label Relapse
Philadelphia’s Nothing return with ’Tired Of Tomorrow’, their beautifully profound follow-up to 2014’s widely-acclaimed ’Guilty Of Everything’. Recorded over the course of a month at Studio 4 with Will Yip (Circa Survive, Title Fight), ’Tired Of Tomorrow’ is a modern, nihilistic take on the triumphant fuzzed-out guitar rock of the 90’s, replete with huge hooks and brooding melodies. Much like the events it’s based on, the album displays an unparalleled balance of opposites and contradictions, rife with sweet-and-sour themes, downcast grooves, infectious choruses, and blissfully expansive washes of sound. With ’Tired Of Tomorrow’, Nothing have worked the deepest influences of their youth and maturation into a confident, memorable album that is sure to soothe old wounds while simultaneously opening up new ones. Recommended if you like: Smashing Pumpkins, Ceremony, Merchandise, My Bloody Valentine, Diiv and Radiohead.

Title Manteision Bodolaeth or The Perks Of Being [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Ade]

Rope are three friends from South Wales who play their own minimal, powerful and precise brand of guitar music. They formed in 2015 from the ashes of other noteworthy South Wales bands, including Goodtime Boys and Hunger Artist. "Manteision Bodolaeth" or "The Perks of Being" which was recorded live in 2 days with the prestigious Lewis Johns at the Ranch Production House. In the course of its 6 songs, the album brings to mind the visceral power of Shellac, the songmanship of Nick Cave and the kind of swirling atmospherics you might expect from Neurosis or Pink Floyd, all held together by a powerful vocal delivery and thoughtful lyrics. Even in the tentative stages of the band and despite their being only a three-piece, Rope are capable of obtaining a sound with a depth beyond any of their contemporaries.

Title A Weird Exits [STAFF TOP 10s 2016 - Ashli]
Label Castle Face
Emerging from the distant light is the new double-LP from John Dwyer’s Thee Oh Sees—the first studio recordings to capture the muscular rhythm section of twin drummers Ryan Moutinho and Dan Rincon with ringer bassist Tim Hellman cracking spines. The groove and bludgeon one has come to expect from the band’s live shows is captured seamlessly here—they go from zero to headsplitter, and on the rare occasions they do let up on the gas a bit, you’re treated to some locked-in hypnotizers, too. The guitar sounds more colossal and ethereal at the same time, riding roughshod over the vacuum- sealed rhythm section, spiraling skywards, and diving into the emerald depths so quick your guts tingle. Synths, strings and smokesoaked things crawl behind the scenes to make an extra far-out party platter, served on 45 RPM plates for most excellent listening quality. With amazing visuals (including a side-D etching by airbrush-vanart maestro Robert Beatty) and packed in vape-proof goatskin, it’s a beast.
