Music Chart - April 2015

Great new albums this month from Death Cab For Cutie (the last with Chris Walla), The Go! Team (take away the irritating fillers and there are nine cracking pop tunes) , and Paul Hartnoll's new post-Orbital project 8:58. Also more brain-scrambling musing from the wonderful Courtney Barnett and the heartbreaking Sufjan Stevens. Elsewhere Godspeed You! Black Emperor continue to baffle and beguile while East India Youth delivers his best work yet.

Death Cab For Cutie take the top spot (for now). Kintsugi is not perfect but plays to the band's strengths throughout, a blend of styles and textures - clichés aplenty with the unique DCFC slant.
