Format: Audio CD
Produced by Matthew Herbert, and featuring Hot Chip's drummer, Polar Bear & Acoustic Ladyland's bassist, and someone called Dave who I've never heard of before, The Invisible aren't short on musical chops, and though this is a world away from "look at me, ma!" prog soloing, they're not afraid to show just how well they can play.

As you might imagine from the participants, The Invisible mix up contemporary electronic music, funk, jazz, indie rock, and more, into a sonic soup that's absolutely delicious on headphones. TV On The Radio have been mentioned as a comparison, and that's valid, as is the last Radiohead album, and, perhaps, Bloc Party stripped of the inferiority complex that's compelled them to ruin their last two albums by over-egging the pudding.

For those old enough to remember, A.R. Kane are also a serious reference point: the Dave bloke sings almost exactly like Rudi, and there's something in the music's sophisticated eclecticism that recalls that band's work updated by 20 years.

I've had this a weekend and songs aren't jumping out at me for their melodies particularly; appreciating The Invisible is much more about taking in texture, subtle virtuosity, and twisting musicological avenues than it is humming tunes, I think - not that things are at all tuneless or atonal, just not reductively catchy.

Observing any human beings doing something they're very, very good at is a pleasure; The Invisible are very good at playing intricate, intriguing modern rock / jazz /whatever music. Keep an eye, and a couple of ears, on them.

Format: Audio CD
I'll not pretend that I'd heard of this band before their Mercury Music Prize nomination. I'll not pretend that , upon listening to this album, that they deserved to win the Mercury Music Prize. However, I will not pretend that this is an album full of pretentious throwback indie ramblings. It is quite simply sublime. These guys make fresh sounding, uplifting, soulful music that retains a 'British' sound. I managed to catch them touring with Micachu And The Shapes recently and they blew me away. The layers of sound they build through each track had me hypnotized and I came away craving more. British music is really on a high at the moment and these guys deserve the plaudits. Go buy!

This should have worn the MMPA -this album is sublime - I have not heard anything as fresh, as wonderful, in a very long time. BUY the album, you will not be disappointed.

This is an excellent and quirky piece of music. Some songs hit the sweet spot straight off, while others are a slow burn but get better on each play. I love this band and going to buy there second CD. Be inspired and go for it!

These guys are frankly insane. I'm looking forward to the follow up! What an incredible mix of influences pooled together in a pot of goodness.
