Polica When We Stay Alive The fifth full length album from American synth-poppers Poliça, titled When We Stay Alive. Sure to feature another dose of their spellbinding and mystical songwriting. The album's title references the idea of moving forward through life - our experiences, both good and bad - and what happens next with the strength we find. "I had been living unconsciously in past trauma," Leaneagh says. "I don't want to deny something happened - this is not about repression - it's about taking the power back from the past, holding the power in the present, and creating a new story for myself."

Mind Enterprises Panorama Hit-maker Mind Enterprises is back with a new mini album with new and previously released singles and remixes. The release is a collection of the artist’s recent singles including the acclaimed and Shortlist Magazine’s top 50 singles of 2017 ‘Idol’, plus ‘Gemini’ and ‘S.H.A.K.E’, which together with current new track ‘Monogamy’ marks the unveiling of an electrifying new sound. Obsessed with vintage synthesisers and 80s beats, Mind Enterprises (aka Andrea Tirone) has created a sound which is somehow both forward thinking and nostalgic at the same time. Think Italo Disco meets retro dance, with razor sharp modern production, and you’re half-way there. ‘Monogamy’, coupled with it’s 80s style VHS video is designed to make your feet move and your heart long for simpler times. Its irresistible groove and disjointed vocals are as instant as they are idiosyncratic. Because Music LP
Bjork / Fever Ray / The Knife Country Creatures The Knife and Fever Ray bring their signature styles to Björk’s ‘Features Creatures’ in two intense remixes released today.

As part of a creative exchange, Björk has also remixed a track by Fever Ray. The collective Country Creatures EP will be pressed as a limited edition vinyl. Caroline 12"
The Comet Is Coming Death To The Planet Follow-up to the Mercury Prize nominated Channel The Spirits. Darkness and light. The party to end all parties.

Yeule Serotonin II yeule is the manifested reflection of Nat ?miel. An ongoing project since 2012, yeule’s music is as ethereal as it dynamic, reflective of her nomadic upbringing. Though she grew up and attended school in Singapore for most of her life, her family traveled often, developing emotional connections with places far from home that left her searching, unmoored, putting forth a creation that is in constant metamorphosis.

FKA Twigs Magdelene We've got 1 signed 12"x12" print to give away with the LP. Indies exclusive is on red vinyl. The highly anticipated second full length album from FKA Twigs, following on from the critically acclaimed, BRIT + Mercury prize nominated LP1. Created in a period where her confidence was knocked following heartbreak and laparoscopic surgery, MAGDALENE is the sound of twigs reconfiguring, emotionally and physically. As she sings on ‘Mary Magdalene’, the MAGDALENE album track that opened her highly-praised, sold-out live shows earlier in the year, “A woman’s time / A woman’s work / A woman’s time to embrace / She must put herself first”. MAGDALENE is produced by FKA twigs and, as with LP1, the recording process has been directed by her at every stage. It was recorded between London, New York and Los Angeles over the last three years and features major contributions from Nicolas Jaar alongside a host of other collaborators. MAGDALENE sees FKA twigs creating a whole new artistic universe and it is, without doubt, her most masterful, innovative work to date. Young Turks CD | LP
