10. Mirroring: “Mirroring” (Kranky)

Mirroring is the joint venture by Liz Harris (Grouper) and Jessy Fortino (Tiny Vipers), a new dazzling excursion to the heart of dream-pop built from showers of drones.

9. Mi Ami: “Decade” (100% Silk)

The Mi Ami twosome is reactivated after the hipster house boom spearheaded by Ital, and changes the art-rock of their beginnings for a lo-fi brand of electronic psychedelics that sounds like nineties disco touched by time.

Review Decade

8. Pegasvs: “Pegasvs” (Canada)

Pegasvs (Sergio Pérez García and Luciana della Villa) make their debut with an electronic steamroller that shakes up and reorganises seventies analogue music and turns it into 24-karat pop.

7. Nite Jewel: “One Second Of Love” (Secretly Canadian)

The particular kind of eighties electronic pop that Nite Jewel had been putting out since 2009 reaches its peak on this second album, which oscillates between adult pop and fantasy, with some R&B sweetness thrown in for good measure.

Review One Second Of Love

Listen

6. Belbury Poly: “The Belbury Tales” (Ghost Box)

New retro-futurist transmissions from Jim Jupp, it has plenty of vintage synths, references to the magic past of British folk and Canterbury progressive rock. Not to mention the indisputable guarantee of the Ghost Box label.
