My suggestions for the music you should be buying this month.

Anathema - Weather Systems
Released: 16th April

My favourite emotional liverpudlian rockers release, uplifting, euphoric ninth full length. Word is that it has topped the vast, sweeping, anthemic "We're Here Because We're Here"... I will have to hear that to believe it.

FOR FANS OF: Oceansize, Porcupine Tree, Coldplay

Azealia Banks - 1991 EP
Released: 16th April

Foul-mouthed 20 year old NYC female rapper celebrates her year of birth on her debut EP proper. Judging by the huge bass beats she has been expleting over of late, this won't be an easy listen, but it will be a massively fun one.

FOR FANS OF: Diplo, UK bass, the words "bitch" and "c*nt"

Marina and the Diamonds - Electra Heart
Released: 30th April

Fame-obsessed diva Marina takes up an altogether more electronic dance approach on her new record, with dubstep beats clattering against her melodramatic vocal on "Starring Role" and throbbing dance meets deceptively sugar-sweet melodies on "Primadonna".

FOR FANS OF: Katy Perry, Robyn, Florence & The Machine

Sub Focus - Out The Blue EP
Released: 29th April

What will become one of the biggest Drum & Bass tunes of the year, no doubt.

FOR FANS OF: DJ Fresh, Nero, Pendulum

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs - Tapes & Money EP
Released: 2nd April

The second single from what will hopefully be one of the best dance albums of the year, TEED's self-titled debut. Shy oxford boys doing synthpop, with huge beats. Who knew? In the words of the song's irresistable sample "Please don't fail me now!"

FOR FANS OF: The Rapture, Cut Copy, Calvin Harris

Zammuto - Zammuto 
Released: 9th April

A bit of a wild card this one. Unusual, uncatagorisable psychadelic pop music with quirky yet undeniably addictive rhythms, and a lot of double bass work.

FOR FANS OF: Animal Collective, Tame Impala, tUnE-yArDs
