It's been a week of feuds. At The Great Escape it was whether electro-pop or the good old guitar affirmed their place as 2012 dominant force; with phenomenal shows from The Black Bells and Haim matching NZCA/Lines and Aiden Grimshaw –yes the X Factor one - it's a draw.

The battle was mirrored is album stream land, with jaw dropping previews of Niki and The Dove, and Best Coast. This time, Malin's and Gustaf's electro anthems beat Bethany's slacker riff hands down. Equally decisive was the latest remarkable war between Fun Lovin' Criminals and Kenickie, following Huey Morgan's drunken and bitters rants at the Sony Radio Awards versus Lala's cool collectiveness.

Trumping both 90s singers, however, are anti-britpop legends Cornershop, taking centre stage in this week's best albums streams with Urban Turban. So while the world battles on, and a campaign to Amazing radio's return to DAB commences, just kick back and enjoy the best of the week's album streams.

Mount Eerire- Clear Moon (

Phil Elverum's laconic understatement always mesmerises, and Clear Moon allows his voice and genteel strumming to become other worldly. Backed with, almost, new age synths and precision discordance there's an almost Eno-esque feel to this magnificent record. There's always a naturalistic theme to Elverum's work which evokes place and vastness in equal measure.

Cornershop – Urban Turban (

Cornershop are indie's most original and innovative band; they never make the same record. They veer from the Stonesy Lessons Learned From Rocky 1 To Rocky 3 to their previous Punjabi album, and Urban Turban continues this by combining Lawrence's quirkiness with Beck's funxploitation. It's laced with punchy bass, scattered beats and a kids chorus. Dedication could be even be a house anthem, if Indietracks was Creamfields

Animal Kingdom – The Looking Away (

The second album from the London trio is a sweeping pop gem which is proud of its sheen and ambition. It's a bit School of Seven Bells gone Hurts which makes for a celestial and bulbous record while retaining twinkling innovation. Glass House has an angular groove and Skipping Disc a folk communion which show Animal Kingdom's breezy depth.

Hot Water Music – Exister (

Their first record in six years is as full on rock n roll as you'd expect. They've always been more rock than punk, yet manage to combine aggression with cocksureness needed for both. Exister's brash riff's give it a hardnosed edged over the current crop of pretty emo bands playing lets be rock-stars. It also sounds a lot like 90's singing-drummer-Geordie-punks, China Drum.

I Like Trains – The Shallows (

If you've ever stood in an indie disco, mumbling about the music being too mainstream – apart from The Smiths, nursing a Fosters and avoiding eye contact with girls, then you probably already know I Like Trains. The Shallows, sees them…well… a bit catchy; there's lush layering, prickling synths and the intricate rhythms of a barroom The The.

Cari Lekebusch – You Are A Hybrid Too (

The Swedish techno pioneer's catalogue is phenomenal, and his 20 year career has no intention of waning judging by this 14 track monster. His tech-house is bulging with sub-beats and barraging loops which produces a clinical IDM with a fierce vibration. If you like your electronica indie friendly (SMD, Four Tet, Seams) you may not get it, but for 4/4 aficionados it's marvellous.

Parlovr – Kook Soul (

Music's meant to be fun. Listening to serious songs' depth and key intricacies is ok, if you're, like, 50 and reminisce about ELO, Fleetwood Mac or some dad-shit from the days of analogue, but if you want to smile and feel alive then you need Kook Soul. It's filled with brilliant indiepop which is part Ben Folds, a smidgeon of Beach Boys and a waft of The Cribs.

Brasstonaught – Mean Sun (

You've gotta love a band called Brasstonaught, right? It starts with a lone trumpet over hypnotic tinkles and marching snares before moving into punchy rhythms. Its afro-beat and space-age inflections prevent it harking towards the maudlin Hovis advert theme, although Moonwalker does encapsulate a small town feel. Indeed, the Knopfler-esque guitars give it the aura of the film Local Hero.
