Hello dearest music lovers, welcome to another great playlist of new and newish indie music. It’s an episode featuring plenty of old hands returning with new material, with a bunch of exciting newcomers for good measure.

We’ve been dipping our toes in a number of albums recently from some proven performers, those notably being The Killers, Arcade Fire, British India and The Kite String Tangle. Alas, most of these have turned up a couple of gems and a decent amount of what a polite person would call ‘filler’. The gems are included within, however. Arcade Fire have delivered a marked improvement on their last album, Reflektor, the disappointing follow up to their stunning 2010 masterpiece The Suburbs, so prepare for dustings of this album.

Sydney, Australia outfit Ocean Alley have recently grabbed us with their blissed out, stoner, Hendrix style heady jams. We were late to the piece and have been checking out an album of theirs from 2015, however samples from it are worth it. Apologies to fans who already had their finger on the pulse, please indulge those of us that let them slip by at the time.

We’re also excited to delve into the collaboration of Tom Iansek, of Big Scary and #1 Dads, and ethereal vocalist Tom Snowdon. They’ve joined forces to bring us their band No Mono. We will follow them with keen interest after being treated to one of the songs of the decade in Return To, from the #1 Dads album About Face, a couple of years back.

Get around the new music, friends, until next time.
