Weird Dreams - Luxury Alone (Coloured Vinyl)
Weird Dreams is the nom-de-plume of Doran Edwards, a London-based artist returning nearly four years after the release of his band's debut album, Choreography. This new record, Luxury Alone, is a collection of ten songs made over a 3 year period of uncertain times in different rooms in various homes, and was written, produced, performed and mixed by Edwards. Luxury Alone documents a very difficult period of emotional turmoil and various health issues for Edwards, and the result is an extremely moving and beautiful personal journey. “All this music is how I felt in the world.

Weird Dreams - Choreography
Debut album from east London's Weird Dreams. Influenced by the Beach Boys and David Lynch films, their sound is crisp, concise, psych-edged pop. Think Morning Benders with an early '80s UK post-punk twist, with spiralling guitars and vivid lyrical imagery. An impressive debut on Tough Love Records.

Proper Ornaments - Foxhole (LP+7
On ‘Foxhole’ Proper Ornaments have sliced away a whole stratum of their sound, removing some distortion and lowering the frequency of plectrum strokes to allow more nuanced, piano-led ideas to emerge. The title isn’t a reference to Television’s jaunty proto-punk record but seems to be more of a dark, protective interior, a head space sketched out on ‘Jeremy’s Song’. While their particularly recognisable production style (a bright, frozen counterpoint to the airless mixes one encounters more often) remains, there is a shift in mood.

Girls Names - Stains On Silence
It stands to reason that many vital albums come critically close to never being made. The eight-track upshot of doubt, upheaval and financial strain, Stains on Silence by Girls Names is one such release. Following 2015’s blitzing Arms Around a Vision, and the parting of drummer Gib Cassidy just over a year later, the Belfast band suddenly found themselves facing down a looming void. “There was a finished – and then aborted – mix of the album, which was shelved for six months,” reveals Girls Names frontman Cathal Cully. What could have seen the band buckle, instead became an opportunity for approaching things tabula rasa. . Marked by the presence of drum machines and programming throughout, these eight masterfully-woven tales are once again commandeered by founder Cully, whose words, understated yet defiant, mine purpose and meaning from the mire. But while Stains on Silence came critically close to never being made, having lived with it, reconfigured it, and guided its metamorphosis from flickers of inspiration and half-formed schemes, it’s both a statement of pure perseverance, and a head-on confrontation with ambivalence that couldn’t be more assured.
