Excellent summer anthem worthy of a festival headline slot.
2 (4) THE BROKEN VINYL CLUB – ONE WAY STREET – ACID JAZZ
Debut release but as soon as the needle hits the record you think you already know it. Packed full of your favourite 60’s licks.
3 (7) PAUL WELLER – STARLITE – ISLAND
PW: “A brand new track for the summer, part Balearic beat, poetry and psychedelic”. He’s on his way up The Hit Parade and coming over a bit like Blur.
4 (4) THE MASONICS – IN YOUR NIGHT OF DREAMS… – DIRTY WATER
From the Medway stable of Dustbin Mod, armed with 12 nuggets of good time rock’n’roll trash. Superb.

Scorching debut single from top new Manchester outfit, boasting rhythms, lyrics, tunes, attitude, charm & swagger.

A stunning LP of rich sombre ethereal textures soaring above deep pools of warm bass, creating emotionally absorbing atmospherics to get lost in and vocals that are a touch Thom Yorke. It’ll blow you away.

Like spinning out in the crow’s nest aboard a pirate galleon on the high seas. Hold tight.

A beautiful duet featuring Shara Worden, based around a gently strummed waltz, it builds and soars into an emotional rush with aplomb.
18 (NEW) MILK MAID – DEAD WRONG – SUFFERING JUKEBOX / FAT CAT
Classic 60’s pop sensibilities smothered in fuzz and we don’t give a fuck but really we do production. Excellent.

Debut release packed with quality harmonies & melodies. This lot could be heading for very big things.

Like driving an ice cream van around planet pastel. Max Essa delivers a nice mix of bonus cut “Yeah”.

Chocolate Puma serves up pumping rhumba house with big brass hooks on.
23 (22) EMIKA – PRETEND / PROFESSIONAL LOVING – NINJA TUNE

28 (NEW) TOOB – CHROMAPHON REMIXES – PROCESS
Point B and Radioactive Man both strip back the original’s intensity, working the bass and adding some nice little flourishes.
