I love this debut from Colorado's Night Beds (@nightbeds). Winston Yellen's voice is beautiful, my first thought was of the Guillemots' Fyfe Dangerfield, but other tracks remind me of Bon Iver or Neil Young. By no means something you'd stick on mid-party, although it would be perfect for those early hours staring out at a starry night (see how emotional it makes me). 
The new album by Villagers (@wearevillagers) seems to take advantage of a more produced band sound to produce a larger more "full" sound than his last. Less immediate for me than his 1st album but after a few listens, nuances and melodies are starting to settle in, and I really like the new electronic elements most notable on "The Waves". 
@kingcreosote - I Learned from the Gaels: New EP from "King Kenny", a welcome return since the last time I heard his work Mercury Prize nominated album. Markedly more up-beat since his last collaboration with Jon Hopkins, with tracks showing a more raucous pop/rock sound, and he takes on this mix of styles very well. 
@skinnylister - Forge & Flagon: Perfect release for the UK summer (when ever that's going to start), a great #folk album with sounds from #Pogues like shanties to #kirstymaccoll like ballads. I'm already imagining myself at the nearest BBQ /Beer Garden/Festival/(insert outside destination with beer or cider here). With folk moving more and more into the mainstream, I think this could bring #partyfolk to people's attention. 
@RActiveGran - The Radioactive Grandma: Just discovered this gem, thanks to @musicreviewu. One of the stand out artists of those I've listened to this week, an accomplished album of indie rock/folk with a definite sound of early @blocparty on some tracks. I wouldn't be surprised to hear these on my radio sooner than later.
