Info: REMY's monthly new album releases round-up returns (rather belatedly) for April, featuring singles already released from albums coming out over the next two weeks (and previous two) in the above playlist. There's a horrifically boisterous opening courtesy of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and their single 'American Guilt' from latest LP Sex & Food. Mr. E is back with Eels' new album Deconstruction and the new if familiar sound of single 'Bone Dry'. Repping the Irish album releases are Dublin indietronica outfit Pursued By Dogs and their 2017 single 'Iceland', their self-titled album will be out next week on the 27th of April. 

There's some very gratifying electronic music from both Chrome Sparks' self-titled release and Daniel Avery's album Song for Alpha. I'm loving the subtle old school soul backdrop to Janelle Monáe's rn'b delivery on her third album Dirty Computer, some of her best moments are in here since the ground-breaking ArchAndroid in 2010. Two acts I'm really interested in, and looking forward to, digging deeper into are Paris outfit En Attendant Ana via their Lost and Found album and I kinda fell in love with the off-kilter and escapist mystery of Oregan-based chamber folk solo act Laura Veirs' The Lookout, I'm (very) late to the game, this is her twelfth album since 1999, I have a lot of back-listening to do. Finally I'm quite excited about Twin Shadow's first album in 3 years, Caer and unbridled indie-pop go-getters Say Sue Me's Where Were We Together.
