Sixth album from Mark Andrew Hamilton, a Canadian musician who goes by the name of Woodpigeon. This is a record which almost never existed as Hamilton effectively quit music altogether a few years ago. He was gradually coaxed back in to the indie-folk lifestyle after travelling the world and ripping up the rulebook (usual drill). Here he's experimenting with more unusual song structures with a band that isn't afraid to wonder into jazz territory to get their point across.

The gist Darren Hayman gives 19th century politics a fitting home in 2015 The music Listening to an album based on some lyrics written in the 19th Century by William Morris and entitled Chants for Socialists might not seem like the easiest way to open your 2015. But fear not, because Darren Hayman is here to guide you through them with his characteristic charm, he's also updated some of words so that they're more relatable to a present-day dweller.

Its probably fair to say that Clemence Freschard is still not a household name in this country, more's the pity. People might know her from her excellent, show stealing work with Stanley Brinks and David Tattersall (she featured heavily on Tattersall's debut solo album Happy For A While and sung lead on its best track "I Saw Your Hair Between The Trees"). Freschard was born in France, lived in Paris and New York, and currently resides in Berlin so we should expect a certain musical pedigree.

Never one for lying down, David Tattersall has recorded a solo album of instrumental blues covers and blues influenced material on his third (if you include The Lobster Boat, last year's collaboration with Howard Hughes) solo outing Little Martha. And it’s a solo album in the purest sense of the word, apart from one guest spot from fellow Wave Pictures man Franic Rozycki who adds a mandolin cameo.

The Wave Pictures have worked hard over that last 12 years to build a small but loyal following and a list of indie peers queuing up to sing their praises. Two official albums and countless CD-Rs later their singer, David Tattersall, has decided to release a full length album under his own name. Recorded in Berlin in 2009, the album ditches Wave Pictures cohorts Franic Rozyckiand and Jonny "Huddersfield" Helm in favour of Stanley Brinks on bass (AKA regular collaborator Andre Herman Dune) and producer / Berliner Clemence Freschard on Drums.
