What to watch out for (or avoid!) in April...


Bat For Lashes
Two Suns
Release: 7 April 2009 - Parlophone
"Fur and Gold was nominated for two Brits and the Mercury prize. Two Suns is set to make Khan, resident of the ancient shamanic city of Brighton, one of 2009's stars." - The Guardian




Doves
Kingdom of Rust
Release: 7 April 2009 - Astralwerks
"In a year that's fast becoming a vintage one for albums, Doves storm to the top of the pile. Absolutely brilliant." - BBC





Death Cab For Cutie
The Open Door [EP]
Release: 14 April 2009 - Atlantic

Silversun Pickups
Swoon
Release: 17 April 2009 - Dangerbird
"...check out the shuddering string jabs on The Royal We (recalling Zeppelin's Kashmir) and the outer-space synth flutters coursing through Catch and Release. A trip best made with headphones." - Spin Magazine




Depeche Mode
Sounds of the Universe
Release: 21 April 2009 - Mute
"Sounds of the Universe comes on a bit softer, with less industrial guitar clang and more of chief songwriter Martin Gore's dreamy atmospherics" -
Spin Magazine




Art Brut
Art Brut vs Satan
Release: 21 April 2009 - Downtown
"three-minute, punky student anthems laden with immediate hooks, catchy riffs and conversational storytelling – all of which is doused in a quintessentially British irony. " - The Music Magazine




Pet Shop Boys
Yes
Release: 21 April 2009 - Astralwerks
"for us grateful fans, Yes is a wonderful vindication, and their finest album in many, many years- BBC
