Maya Jane Coles - Comfort: Okay, this is actually from 2013 but so what? I've probably played it more than anything else this year. Coles is a popular UK producer and DJ but this is her first solo disc, and it's gorgeous. Smooth and mellow grooves with a hint of darkness. Every track is excellent. Guests include Tricky and Miss Kittin.
Röyksopp - The Inevitable End: Allegedly the Norwegian duo's final album, it's also one of their best, with standout songs featuring the always dependable Robyn and surprise guest Jamie (from the Irrepressibles).
Temples - Sun Structures: Catchy tunes and fuzzed-out guitar make this a glorious flashback of old-school psychedelia. A must for those so inclined.
Timber Timbre - Hot Dreams: If Nick Cave did a soundtrack for a David Lynch film, it might sound something like this. The song below only hints at what this twisted album has to offer.
Vaults - Vultures E.P.: Though technically not an album, combine it with their previous releases and you've got a fabulous collection of pure pop that falls somewhere between Bel Canto and Roisin Murphy.
