September flew past like a meteorite in the deepest recesses of outer space. It literally vanished over the horizon before we even knew what we were involving ourselves in. You know you are busy when albums you have been waiting on for ten years fall on deaf ears, go undiscussed and gather dust. We know, we know, this is criminal behaviour, but it is hard to keep up to speed sometimes; the old acts keep churning out the goods, whereas the nu-wave of producers, bands, singers, rappers, (the list is never-ending) are more proactive than any generation before them. It is a madness we tell you, but we are staying afloat...

In time honoured fashion, we have decided to look forwards rather than back and put together a top 5 'Albums you must hear this October'. As a month famous for release activity across the globe, it is shaping up to be both exciting, but also an extremely competitive battle ground over the next few weeks as everyone vies for top spot. Here are our tips, enjoy...
 
5 - Kindness: Otherness (October 13 on Female Energy/Mom + Pop.)
 
The weird and wonderful world of Adam Bainbridge has been distinctly quiet of late. Word on the street is that he has been catapulting all about the globe putting the finishing touches to his sophomore album release 'Otherness'. With a long and impressive list of exceptional collaborators backing the project, we see great things on the near horizon for Kindness this month...
 
4 - Jessie Ware: Tough Love (October 13 on PMR/Island Records.)
 
This one is a no-brainer, but a gentle reminder never did anyone harm now did it? Jessie Ware's debut was a work of real beauty and all signs are pointing towards a follow up of equally emotive quality. The all-star list of collaborators and co-writers is well documented and we are thoroughly excited to see just how this record has taken shape. Too many chefs? Or unrivaled love album of the year? There's only one way to find out...
 
3 - Flying Lotus: You're Dead! (October 06 on Warp Records)
 
Arguably the finest producer of his generation, Fly-Lo has drawn for the A-listers to ensure that his fifth full length is his finest to date. Hip hop royalty in the shape of new schooler Kendrick Lamar and old schooler Snoop Dogg have been bought in to ensure greatness levels are optimised and at 19 tracks, well, this album could end up being up there with the very best of the year from the experimental dance legend.
 
2 - Run The Jewels: RTJ2 (October 28 on Mass Appeal)
 
El-P and Killer Mike are an unlikely pairing; one of the leftfield's finest and one of the loudest and brashest from the 'gangster' scene, and yet, their debut 'Run The jewels' project was one of the stand-out releases of last year. So forward-thinking in both arrangement and delivery, we anticipate nothing short of brilliance with the follow up 'RTJ2'. Why? Well, as we all know, anything El-P touches turns to gold. Simple as that really.
 
1 - Tinashe 'Aquarius' (October 07 on Eleven Seven Music)
 
We are backing Tinashe to take herself to the very top of the R'n'B tree in the not-so-distant future. Mixtapes aside, 'Aquarius' is set to be the LA songstresses debut LP and has all the makings of a classic record. We saw Tinashe perform at this years Reading + Leeds Festival and she has all the makings of a star. Need more proof? Well, her acclaimed 'Black Water' mixtape is a great place to start.
