Heading into the second proper week of the musical calendar, things are starting to get a bit more interesting. For a start, the best album of January is out today (hi, East India Youth!), plus we get big albums from the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Run the Jewels. Not too bad, 2014. Not too bad at all.

Below you'll find a list of key albums/singles released today, along with links to our reviews (the ones in blue). Due to our review policy (up to two weeks before release, and in some cases the week following the release), a lot of the albums/singles won't have reviews attached to them, but hopefully this will act as a handy shopping list to take to your local record store.
