Album Sauna by Mount Eerie (2015)
An album that could easily go under the radar unless you're prepared to make an investment. There are no discernible tunes and some of the songs are underwhelmingly subtle and overwhelmingly long, but it's the cohesion that counts, not the individual snippets, but the sum of the parts. It's a charming album that starts to reveal its true worth in leaps and bounds on second and third listen. Mount Eerie went under the radar in the past, but 2015 looks to remedy that. (Richard)  
Album Trilogy by Carpenter Brut (2015)
I like it but I don't know what to make of it, which may or may not be a good thing - what to make of the 80's synthwave euphoric pop with splashes of cheesy Miami Vice interludes, parping trumpets, Vangelis-style audio landscapes, Giorgio Moroder epicness repeated over 18 tracks (three EPs merged into a single album actually)? Well, quite a lot because it's pretty good but far too bombastic to take THAT seriously. I'd get on your bike, set the controls for the heart of the sun and keep on going until the inevitable lack of oxygen or death by ultraviolet radiation occurs. It sounds so old-fashioned and yet there's nothing quite like it at the moment, which could be its appeal. (Richard)  
Album Man It Feels Like Space Again by Pond (2015)
How lucky was that! Please don't dismiss this album as another OK-ish 'January' album, or label it as frivolous/comedy/kooky, or whatever negative preconception you may have, otherwise you may miss out on one of the most consistently good albums of 2015 so far (early Feb). It's really ace. (Richard)  
Track Teardrop by Jose Gonzalez from In Our Nature  (2007) 
This is a cover of 'Teardrop' by Massive Attack, from the 1998 album Mezzanine. Considering what a massive fan I am of the original, with it's rumbling, dark beats and amazing Liz Fraser (Cocteau Twins) vocals, it begs the question, why bother? Not that this version is bad or anything... (Richard)  
Album Beast Mode (mixtape) by Future (USA) (2015)
9 Tracks, 28 Minutes. Fantastic, in a word. (Richard)  
Track The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (theme) by Hugo Montenegro from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (single) (1968)  
A quick scour of the web reveals that the film itself was released in 1966, two or three years before this single which became a hit in the US and UK, which is a cover version of the original film score. If you've seen Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' you may appreciate just how current this type of sound really is, even though it's nigh on 50 years old. (Richard)  
Artist Demis Roussos
R.I.P. Démis Roussos, who died today, January 26th 2015 at the age of 68, ex-lead singer and bassist of the band Aphrodite's Child. (Richard)  
Track Let's Call It Love by Sleater-Kinney from The Woods (2005) 
Absolutely amazing guitar work and surely S-K's longest track ever at 11:01? Not only that, the next track 'Night Light' is sometimes merged seamlessly with this into a single track, making for a total of 14:40. Very un-Sleater-Kinney-ish. (Richard)  
Album No Cities To Love by Sleater-Kinney (2015)
Another very decent album by Sleater-Kinney, but best of all it bookends their career by another ten years and gets rid of any weirdness in calling 'The Woods' their best album, their previous 'last' album from 2005. It's quite a short album too, so if you're looking for 30-ish minutes if indie, girl-'punk' individuality you're looking in the right place, but it's obviously not their best when compared to the absolutely amazing guitar wig-outs in the The Woods, replete with S-K's best vocals and production qualities too, nor as fresh or raw as 'Call The Doctor' and their other 1990s releases, but it's still a decent listen. Just don't forget to check out S-K's other releases if you like this. (Richard)  
Album Ghost Culture by Ghost Culture (2015)
A very nice listen, not least because James Greenwood is from the UK and references 90s electronic icons such as The Beloved and Ultramarine, but also because the first three tracks are mostly excellent, including the stand-out song 'Giudecca'. The clean and invigorating electronic production continues but the pace slows down, delving into indulgent and perhaps even campy material which negates the good start. A worthwhile effort though with some really memorable moments at the beginning. (Richard)
