Nick J.D Hodgson – Tell Your Friends:
A brilliant debut album from ex-Kaiser Chief and songwriter extraordinaire Nick J.D. Hodgson, ‘Tell Your Friends’ was one of the best musical moments in January.
Best 3: Suitable, Honest Face, Tomorrow I Love You
The Go! Team – Semicircle:
Semicircle is a joyous, experimental and all around brilliant comeback album from The Go! Team, who deliver brilliant, positive tracks as always.
Best 3: Mayday, Semicircle Song, Plans Are Like A Dream U Organise
Django Django – Marble Skies:
The third album from Django Django is the group at their best, making infectious synth driven tracks like the almost unstoppable ‘Tic Tac Toe’ and simpler, slowly shifting cuts like ‘Fountains’.
Best 3: Tic Tac Toe, Surface To Air ft. Self Esteem, Fountains
First Aid Kit – Ruins: The long anticipated return of the Swedish sisters First Aid Kit was well worth it, with the duo coming back with another great album full of tight harmonies and dreamy melodies.
Best 3: Rebel Heart, Fireworks, Postcard
