Close It Quietly
Review: When bands hit album four, two things can happen - or three. Some suffer from a crisis of creativity, opting to regurgitate or, worse still, stagnate. Others opt for reinvention, with as many getting it right as going well off-piste, alienating faithful fans in the process. The lucky ones, meanwhile, hit the nail on the head with their most accomplished and complete work to date. Consider Frankie Cosmos among the lucky ones, then, not that luck had much to do with it. Recorded in their New York hometown, everything about the record feels comfortable in that there's nothing forced, and yet it engages and grabs from the off. Lilting, lo-fi rock 'n' roll odes to love, life and the genre itself, anyone who's ever wondered what Cate Le Bon might sound like having a pancake breakfast with The Orielles should grab a seat at this table.

Anak Ko
Anak Ko (CD)
Cat: PRC 390CD.
Review: By the time you reach the muffled, eccentric opening bars of "Tenderness", just past halfway on "Anak Ko", Jay Som's remit is clear. The Los Angeles singer-songwriter has left her shoes, or rather shoegaze, behind. This time she's walking barefoot through a lo-fi musical tapestry, baring soles and heartbreak while musing on the importance of self-value. Highlights are plentiful throughout, from the head-noddingly agreeable "Nighttime Drive" to the jerking, grunge-y "Peace Out", it's equal parts gorgeous and effortlessly- not to mention breathily- cool, sexy and surprising. Perhaps what's most reassuring, though, is that there's every chance this could all come across as affected and a little too self-aware. Nothing could be further from the truth from what we can hear- an honest work representing the next step in the evolution of a truly exciting American indie talent.

Face Stabber
Face Stabber (coloured vinyl LP)
Cat: CF 116X.
Review: Jolting, licking, riffing, rolling and almost definitely tripping out of their minds and into your ears, garage-psych heroes Oh Sees compliment their already-prolific track record for wonderfully brain-melting business with an expansive double offering. It's a world that's not for the weak-kneed, with stacks ready to make floors shudder beneath the thump of feet driven by commanding rhythms and pounding kicks. Perhaps best exemplified on the title track, the likes of "Gholu" explore similarly ferocious, neo-punk, almost-heavy metal territories, electric guitar strings screeching like crazed banshees. Elsewhere there's more hallucinatory avenues traversed, the otherworldly intro and infectious strut of "Poisoned Stones", "The Experimenter" and its funk-infused instrumentation- like Hendrix cameoing on some early-Chilli Peppers demo. Not that we didn't want to shoehorn references to Zappa, kraut and Primal Scream in here, too.

Review: The return of Baltimore's Lower Dens - now with half as many members as last time we caught up with them - could have been entitled "The Contrast", although that may be stating the obvious. As anyone familiar with the outfit's combination of heartfelt vocal delivery, dream pop ambience and brutally honest socio-political commentary will understand. It's a unique combination for a band that, on first contact, sound like they should be all about the love songs. Then again, there's an air of jilted love, or at least just jilted, about numbers like "Young Republicans", sliding into waves of powerful synth as Jana Hunter waxes lyrical about the world burning. While many of today's pop bands nod to the 1980s, Lower Dens are particularly convincing given the decade was, for many, defined by the death of America's big dream and a realisation that societal progress could be a 20th Century myth. Uptempo but stark stuff.

Lookout Low
Cat: COMM 322.
Review: You could almost be forgiven for thinking "Dance Through It", track five on this warm and groovy outing from Twin Peaks, was the work of Simply Red. Guitar licks and funky keyboards are set to a leisurely tempo, the song itself telling the story of a girl with something to hide, who uses musical expression - specifically dance - to mask those issues. Heartfelt narrative meets soulful pop; need we say more? Well, maybe, so here's a little extra. Most of what's here is worthy of a feel good film score, from the anthemic chorus of southern rock 'n' roll effort "Oh Mama", to the pared back sing-along opener "Casey's Groove". As such it should go without saying fans of country, AOR, and (proper) R&B should already have the title and band noted down and marked up for immediate purchase.

Keepsake
Review: Harriette "Hatchie" Pilbeam has been in the incubator of London label Heavenly for roughly two years now, with the label slowly establishing the artist before this debut with a slick run of 7" singles and promo material. Colliding breathy synth pop with reverb-drench folk, a touch of trip hop and good old-fashioned indie, Keepsake presents the debut opus from an emerging talent that's helping define what Shoegaze can be for 2019. Highlights include the Enya-like "Secret" and the melancholic two step beats of "Stay With Me". With touches of Boards Of Canada to be found in Hatchie's music too, there's a deep musical brain behind these beats and it should not be slept on. Check. It. Out.

Review: Don't believe everything you read - the fifth Bat For Lashes album confirms this girl (or woman) found herself musically and thematically some time ago, freeing up creative energy to explore new approaches to deliver her often mournful, always heartfelt songs inspired by personal crises and private longings. On this outing there's more than a hint of 1980s pop evident in the mix. Shades of Prince ("Feel For You"), Madonna ("So Good"), Bowie's Berlin days and electro-era Gary Numan (the stunning, infectious instrumental "Vampires") cast the record in a nostalgia that suits the sense of yearning that always seems to pervade Natasha Khan's work. Simply name-checking reference points is lazy and unfair, though. This is an incredible collection of tracks moulded in the artist's own image - bold, beautiful and instantly captivating. Then again, it would be surprising if anyone had expected anything less.
