RECOMMENDED RELEASE: LA ROUX – TROUBLE IN PARADISE (2014) [POP, ELECTRONIC] @larouxofficial @Interscope @cherrytreerec At only nine tracks long, but with every one of them worthy of single status, it displays, as pop albums go, both rare economy and staggering consistency. – The Independent (UK) This polished set is pure aural candy from front-to-back and firmly re-establishes Jackson as one of Britain’s premier pop talents. – Clash Music With songs like this, Trouble in Paradise proves Jackson is still better than many of her contemporaries when it comes to making fizzy electro-pop. – All Music Guide TRACK HIGHLIGHTS: UPTIGHT DOWNTOWN, FULL POST
RECOMMENDED RELEASE: ALVVAYS – ALVVAYS (2014) [ROCK] @alvvaysband @royalmtn Alvvays’ record is a hard-hitting, multi-faceted anthology of awesome, and sits pretty as one of 2014’s brightest debuts. – The Line Of Best Fit Alvvays find a way to articulate their heart-struck, dream-like songs with deft intention and control. – All Music Although initially self-released, Alvvays’ lap of honour is about as road-tripping, beach-friendly and lazy day-appropriate as any album comes. – DIY TRACK HIGHLIGHTS: ADULT DIVERSION, ARCHIE MARRY ME, ATOP A CAKE Visit Alvvays on facebook, twitter & the world wide web.
RECOMMENDED RELEASE: THE ACID – LIMINAL (2014) [ELECTRONIC, POP] “In theory, balance and restraint aren’t the most exciting virtues for an album to possess, but in practice, Liminal’s subtlety is confident and dynamic.” – All Music Guide TRACK HIGHLIGHTS: ANIMAL, FAME, BASIC INSTINCT Visit the Acid on facebook, twitter & the world wide web
