Whilst we can't give you a mocha and a side order of hash brownies, what we can offer is a smorgasbord of sonic delights that both stimulate the senses and provide nourishment for headspace to unwind and relax..

What you’ll be listening to...

Your box will include a handpicked selection of two or three albums from this collection of eight:

So Long See You Tomorrow

Bombay Bicycle Club

So Long See You Tomorrow

Bombay Bicycle Club

Bombay Bicycle Club's latest So Long, See You Tomorrow is an often dazzling, euphoric electronic-pop record where the band has decided to depart from their jangly indie pop roots.

first single “Carry Me” and opener “Overdone” show Bombay Bicycle Club getting newly aggressive, where they just want to express their joy in discovering different forms of sonic expression.

The pummeling drum track of “Overdone” would’ve been ear-turning enough, but the title becomes a wink as the band piles on battling countermelodies, percussive synths, staggered drops and octave-shifted guitars. Meanwhile, “Carry Me” boasts the closest thing to a guitar riff, but it sounds more like a trombone over an impossibly jerky, inhuman rhythm, imagining Hidden-era These New Puritans as flower children rather than warmongers.

Tracklist

1. Overdone 
2. It's Alright Now 
3. Carry Me 
4. Home By Now 
5. Whenever, Wherever 
6. Luna 
7. Eyes Off You 
8. Feel 
9. Come To 
10. So Long, See You Tomorrow

LCD Soundsystem

Electric Lady Sessions

LCD Soundsystem

Electric Lady Sessions

Electric Lady Studios can be thought of less as a traditional album of new material than a live potpourri of reworkings of some of the band’s most historically engrossing material, and also some eccentric covers to boot

As a whole, perhaps unsurprising to those well-versed in the band’s skyscraping sonic feats, Electric Lady Sessions is an affecting appetiser with riveting moments strewn throughout the 12-song compilation.

The real remuneration will of course be another American Dream caliber album of original songs; hopefully the evident fun the band had at Electric Lady recording this album will not totally enliven Murphy’s mood too much, and he retains the bulk of his overcast pessimism for paradigm-shifting future dance-oriented outings.

Tracklist

1. Seconds 
2. American Dream 
3. You Wanted A Hit 
4. Get Innocuous! 
5. Call The Police 
6. I Used To 
7. Tonite 
8. Home 
10. I Want Your Love 
11. Emotional Haircut 
12. Oh Baby 
13. (We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang

Ma Fleur

The Cinematic Orchestra

Ma Fleur

The Cinematic Orchestra

Ma Fleur delineates an immensely moving, utterly distinct night-time world which is a pleasure to inhabit.

The fourth album from Jason Swinscoe's shape-shifting instrumental outfit demands close attention.

Despite Swinscoe's swelling supporting cast of singers and players, Ma Fleur is notable as much for what you don't hear as for what you do: a sense of space; an absence of clutter; an enrapturing hush. The opening track, To Build a Home, a grand, billowing piano ballad which could draw admiring sighs from Antony Hegarty or Chris Martin, is as immediate as it gets.

Tracklist

1. To Build A Home 
2. Familiar Ground 
3. Child Song 
4. Music Box 
5. Prelude
6. As The Stars Fall 
7. Into You 
8. Ma Fleur 
9. Breathe 
10. That Home 
11. Time & Space

After The Rain

Benjamin Francis Leftwich

After The Rain

Benjamin Francis Leftwich

hushed and hymnal

This York singer-songwriter has been through a lot since his 2011 debut, Last Smoke Before the Snowstorm. He lost his father to cancer, and spent a dark period holed up in his late parent’s old house, trying to destroy himself. This has all had an impact on his second album, but the songs are more about renewal after turbulence than wallowing in despair.

The atmosphere is hushed and hymnal: the 26-year old’s almost-whispered vocals and gently plucked guitar glide over softly pattering drums and occasional electronics.

Tracklist

1. Tilikum 
2. Some Other Arms 
3. She Will Sing 
4. Kicking Roses 
5. Summer 
6. Just Breathe 
7. Cocaine Doll 
8. Groves 
9. Day By Day 
10. Immortal 
11. Mayflies 
12. Frozen Moor

Liquid Skin

Gomez

Liquid Skin

Gomez

There was gravity in the way the old blues warriors walked and talked - the slower they moved, the softer they sang, the more impact their music had. It's a lesson the young Turks in Gomez have already learned, judging from the deceptively casual vibe that hangs like humidity over the group's second album, Liquid Skin.

Throughout the album, voices murmur while guitars strum idly, as if the listener were eavesdropping on a practice session. The melodies toy with carelessness, the voices straddle the line between singing and conversing.

And yet Gomez rarely become complacent in their midtempo grooves or succumb to ramshackle jamming. Songs shift direction with inspired purpose: A piano strides over a rolling snare beat that realigns "Las Vegas Dealer"; a raga-rock coda puts a wicked spin on "Bring It On"; and "Devil Will Ride" sweeps its way toward lighter-waving anthem status on a carpet of horns.

Tracklist

1. Hangover 
2. Revolutionary Kind 
3. Bring It On 
4. Blue Moon Rising 
5. Las Vegas Dealer 
6. We Haven't Turned Around 
7. Fill My Cup 
8. Rhythm & Blues Alibi 
9. Rosalita 
10. California 
11. Devil Will Ride

Bambino

Superfood

Bambino

Superfood

Superfood found themselves awkwardly tangled-up with the wave of pink-haired, dungaree-wearing bands from Birmingham who arrived and eventually fizzled-out in recent years.

It’s definitely an album that’s giddy with ideas, but this only works to its advantage. Singles like “I Can’t See” and “Unstoppable” sound more confident than this band have ever been before. They’re even happy to push the boat out with a track like “Need a Little Spider”, a colourful jam that could weirdly be mistaken for early Wolfmother. It’s a record which blossoms with this kind of randomness but it rarely looses soul and groove. Forget the Superfood of old, because this record is different for all the right reasons.

Tracklist

1. Where's the Bass Amp?
2. I Can't See 
3. Unstoppable 
4. Wibble Mtn 
5. Natural Supersoul 
6. Need a Little Spider 
7. Raindance 
8. C is for Colour 
9. Double Dutch 
10. Shadow 
11. Lov 
12. Witness 
13. Clo Park

Before and After Science

Brian Eno

Before and After Science

Brian Eno

Before and after Science is austere and restrained, an enigma in a deceptively engaging skin.

Before and After Science is being touted as Brian Eno’s most commercial album, and with some reason: it’s a graceful, seductively melodic work, and side one even kicks off with a neat little disco riff. But this view also confuses the issue. People who loved Eno for his static, artsy instrumentals on David Bowie’s Heroes and Low will appreciate this album.

Before and after Science is austere and restrained, an enigma in a deceptively engaging skin.

1. No One Receiving
2. Backwater
3. Kurt's Rejoinder
4. Energy Fools the Magician" (arranged by Percy Jones, Eno)
5. King's Lead Hat
6. Here He Comes
7. Julie With ..
8. By This River (Eno, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Dieter Moebius) 
9. Through Hollow Lands (for Harold Budd) (arranged by Fred Frith, Eno) 
10. Spider and I
