Ten Mile Stereo #4

Laura Gibson ‘La Grande’ (City Slang)
Fresh from her recent European support role to Calexico, Laura Gibson reminded us all what a gorgeous songbook she has. The 21st century Karen Dalton.

Cubs ‘Willowfield E.P.'(Rusted Rail)
The magnificent Cubs are not only one of Ireland’s best kept secrets but independent music (at large) best kept secret.

Sun Kil Moon ‘Among The Leaves’ (Caldo Verde)
Mark Kozelek returns with another masterpiece. No one can expect any less from the legendary Red House Painter’s man. Beautiful tales of life on the road as a musician.

Mirroring ‘Foreign Body’ (Kranky)
Grouper and Tiny Vipers combine to produce one of the best albums of the year, from the ever-dependable Kranky label.

Matthew Dear ‘Beams’ (Ghostly International)
The new L.P. by Detroit producer extraordinaire. Consistent in its magnificence.

The Gaslamp Killer ‘Breakthrough’ (Brainfeeder)
The debut album by L.A. producer (co-founder and resident DJ of the Low End Theory club night in L.A.) is ten years in the making, featuring Gonjasufi and Daedelus.

Youth Lagoon ‘The Year Of Hibernation’ (Fat Possum)
The sublime solo project of Trevor Powers from Idaho, one of the great albums of last year.

Grizzly Bear ‘Shields’ (Warp)
The magnificent ‘Shields’ proves to be even better than 2006’s ‘Yellow House’. Songs such as ‘Half Gate’ and ‘Sun In Your Eyes’ are amongst the very best in the Grizzly songbook.

Nick Cave & Warren Ellis ‘Lawless’ (OST)
Third film by John Hillcoat sees Cave and Ellis combine to magnificent effect again, this time with help from the likes of Emmylou Harris and Mark Lanegan.

Holograms ‘Holograms’ (Captured Tracks)
Debut L.P. from Stockholm’s Holograms takes its influence from punk and new wave bands to startling effect.
