States of Independence
Dazed's ultimate guide to US creativity

Amoeba's hottest records for autumn

The crew share their top ten forthcoming releases in 2014 – a preview of their biannual publication Music We Like

Zola Jesus Taiga

As part of our new summer US project States of Independence we've invited our favourite 30 American curators, magazines, creatives and institutions to takeover Dazed for a day. 

LA vinyl emporium Amoeba Music are opening shop at Dazed today with their guest edit dedicated to sharing their indie music expertise. On the racks are a Tijuana Panthers interview, exclusive Cherry Glazerr video, as well as mixes and selections from the music-mad staff over at Amoeba.

If you want a definitive list of the music you should, could or most definitely will be listening to come the Autumn, there's probably no better crew to ask than the guys over at Amoeba. We asked them which albums they're most excited to have land in their stores – and they gave us this, as taken from their forthcoming Music We Like book.

SCOTT WALKER AND SUNN O))) – SOUSED

VASHTI BUNYAN – HEARTLEAP

Now we have her third album to look forward to, too!
