Dennis Wilson “Pacific Ocean Blue” (Columbia)

From 1974, the maverick Beach Boy goes it alone with a startling, mesmerising masterwork.

Disclosure “White Noise (Hudson Mohawke remix)” (PMR)

The song of the year (so far) gets the remix of the year (so far) as HudMo sends “White Noise” to another level.

Girls Names “Hypnotic Regression” (True Love)

One of many standout tracks from the Belfast band’s sparkling and audacious second album “The New Life”.

K-X-P “II” (Melodic)

Timo Kaukolampi and his Finnish crew’s second album of ambitious, wide-ranging electro pop.

Various “Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love” (Mowest)

Superb compilation from Motown’s Los Angeles offshoot with blockbusters from Odyssey, The Sisters Love, Frankie Valli and many more.
