Mood music, from the past calendar month
Kept simple. These are the albums we’ve been rating released in the past four weeks. From veteran shoe-gazers who seemed unlikely ever make any more music at all (Slowdive) right through to a debut album from a bass-wielding electronic duo who barely existed 12 months ago (Kite Base). It’s a varied lot. Enjoy listening.
