Half-Term Report

Here lies Parallax View's pick of the best albums released for the first time in the UK in the first six months of the year. While we can't pretend to have heard all of the qualifying records (in particular, we resisted The Horrors, because we can't bear to have to say anything nice about them), of those we did, these were the best, and in this precise order.

2. Fever Ray - Fever Ray
3. Bitte Orca - The Dirty Projectors
4. Thunderheist - Thunderheist
5. Union - The Boxer Rebellion
6. Guns Don't Kill People, Lazers Do - Major Lazer
7. Veckatimest - Grizzly Bear
8. The Floodlight Collective - Lotus Plaza
9. Em Are I - Jeffrey Lewis And The Junkyard
10. Get Guilty - AC Newman
11. Face Control - Handsome Furs
12. It's Blitz! - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
13. Farm - Dinosaur Jr
14. Tear Ourselves Away - LoveLikeFire
15. My Maudlin Career - Camera Obscura
16. Post-Apocalyptic Love - The Very Sexuals
17. I Feel Cream - Peaches
18. A Man, A Woman Walked By - PJ Harvey & John Parish
19. Still Night, Still Light - Au Revoir Simone
20. Fantasies - Metric

Records by Experimental Dental School, The Lemonheads, Red Light Company, The Wind Whistles, Telepathe, Polly Scattergood and The Joy Formidable narrowly missed out but are all also worth exploring.
