Shura forevher Following on from her awesome 2016 debut full length album, Shura is back with another offering of her infectious electro-tinged indie pop. ‘forevher,’ then, is a record born from a budding romance, covering everything from the initial pull of desire, to the giddy joy of finally being together, to recognising the moment when the connection develops from lust into something scarily meaningful. Here is a classic London-to-NYC love story, but one told through the filter of dating apps and Skype chats. And whilst how to live – and love – as a queer woman has always been integral to Shura, it’s remarkable to hear these stories twisted through such a gorgeous amalgam of influences: Joni Mitchell and Minnie Riperton, Bon Iver and Frank Ocean, Prince and Ariel Pink. Through these inspirations, Shura’s own modern, outlier perspective found a newer, more daring approach to sound and song. Secretly Canadian CD | LP
BLK JKS Mystery Released 30th March. Formed in Johannesburg in 2000 and brought to wider attention by Diplo, who spotted them while on tour seven years later, BLK JKS take all the bits of TV On The Radio it's easy to love and chuck in billions of ideas of their own. Which makes you ponder how many other amazing bands there are in South Africa... It's idea after idea after idea, and though TVOTR comparisons are as inevitable as they are fair, billing BLK JKS as the Brooklynite's more giddy cousins is perhaps a little off the mark: better to say both bands tap into the same ultra-distinct vein of murky sonic magic. It's taken them the best part of a decade to get to the point of releasing a single EP, but if there's any justice in the world, 2009 should be the year the floodgates burst right open. 8/10, Drowned In Sound. 1.

Danielson Ships Totally beautiful and addictive from the very start, this is Brother Danielson's solo set dedicated to the art of the sea, which features appearances from Sufjan Stevens (and what sound like his band, with some choral vocals from the cheerleader ladies!) and help from Why? of Anticon. With deceptively simple tracks, sometimes straight up indie rock with a hint of country and twisted but warm folky psyche rock, and sometimes freeform but controlled layered instruments, the whole sound is unique - mainly down to Danielson's slighty screechy but never gimmicky vocal style. It works brilliantly with the haunting, uplifting, cinematic and atmospheric musical backdrop. If you are into the kind of music that folks like Sufjan Stevens, Why?, Palace Brothers and David Pajo create, this should be high on your agenda. Go get it! Another Secretly Canadian sureshot.
