Kevin Tihista

The final part of our look back at 2013’s recommend album list – accessible at Spotify.

Kevin TihistaModern Standard

Under the radar perhaps but fully deserves your attention. Pop music making at its best.


One of the best albums ever from a Singapore artist – with the promise of more to come…

The StarfolkS/t

Chamber pop returns and not a moment too soon. Gorgeous.

Paul McCartneyNEW

Not Macca’s best by any stretch of the imagination but when one considers his stellar work, then even this middling album (by his high standards) is still worth a listen.

The Duckworth Lewis MethodSticky Wickets

Good old fashioned Britpop from Neil Hannon and Thomas Walsh!

Lydia LowWrecked Till Further Notice

Bias? Moi?

Scud Mountain BoysDo You Love the Sun

Where Joe Pernice returns to the band that first made his reputation as a writer of wistful, melancholy alt-country and does not disappoint. Now for the next Pernice Brothers LP!

Silver SunA Lick and a Promise

90s powerpop rules! Great to have Silver Sun back!

The Sun Sawed in 1/2Elephants into Swans

Another remarkable comeback from this 90s Pop Underground scene band.

Kevin MathewsEmo FASCISM

There’s nothing like shameless self-promotion to make having a website all worthwhile!

… still there’s more …
