Latest new releases

We kick off 22 June’s six of the best with No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds, the 16th studio album from ambient house pioneers The Orb. Their previous two albums were creations of the duo at the band’s heart, but this time they have thrown their work open to a number of collaborators, including Youth, Jah Wobble, Hollie Cook and Roger Eno, to produce “a more English and less German sounding LP”. Dawes follow their cheerfully titled 2016 work We Are All Going To Die with Passwords, an album for and about the modern age. Plight & Premonition / Flux + Mutability is the long-awaited reissue, fully remastered, of the two seminal ambient works by David Sylvian & Holger Czukay, an early example of the ethereal magic that can be created by loops merged with traditional instruments and that led the way for sampling in today’s music. Simply essential. The Sea Within’s self-titled debut is more an amalgamation of serious talent than a regular supergroup; they’ve played with everybody from Jon Anderson to Meatloaf via Joe Satriani and are very much on the accessible side of prog, with many other musical elements stirred in to a heady brew. Over The Years is a comprehensive overview of a classic songwriter’s career, and when that songwriter is as good as Graham Nash, this makes for a very fine listen indeed.

Our album of the week is Heaven & Earth, the long-awaited follow-up to Kamasi Washington’s astonishing debut The Epic. Over two halves, Washington confronts quotidian realities with cosmic themes. The new album is, apparently, a further investigation of Washington’s world-building ideas, exploring his reckoning with current global chaos and his vision for the future. I have no idea what he means by that, but what I do know is that he has produced an album that both jazz lovers and non-jazz lovers will adore! You must hear it.

Our first recommended release for 15 June – squeezed in just before the World Cup! – is Wilko Johnson’s first album of new material for 30 years! Anyone expecting Wilko’s particular brand of R&B to be softened by age and circumstance is in for a surprise – if anything, his ‘chop’ guitar style on is even more aggressive, with the introspection on some of the tracks on Blow Your Mind more than balanced out by others with the urgency of Wilko’s earliest work with Dr Feelgood. Live At Hammersmith does a fantastic job of capturing the live essence of The Darkness, boasting 19 enormous tunes from across their whole catalogue, and in true spandex-clad Darkness fashion you get huge riffs, thundering bass and hair-raising falsetto – all that’s missing is the massive pyro that should not be tried at home! Blues legend Buddy Guy releases his umpteenth album, The Blues Is Alive And Well, featuring some stellar guest talent, including Keith Richards and Mick Jagger. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer’s incredible career spans over 50 years with as many albums and countless awards, but he is not one to sit on his laurels: his previous album, 2015’s Born To Play Guitar, was critically acclaimed and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Album charts. The Gaslight Anthem celebrate the 10th anniversary of their milestone album, The ’59 Sound, with a collection of unreleased songs recorded during that period, aptly titled The ’59 Sound Sessions. Fans will want the deluxe edition with a 60-page photo-book full of fascinating detail. This week’s touch of the heavy is The Wolf Bites Back, the ninth studio album and the most diverse collection yet from Orange Goblin, on which the usual Sabbath and Motörhead influences are leavened by touches of Can, Wishbone Ash and The Stooges. It’s certainly a lot darker both musically and lyrically.

Our album of the week is Call The Comet, the third solo album from Johnny Marr. “Call The Comet is set in the not-too-distant future,” says Marr, “and is mostly concerned with the idea of an alternative society. It’s my own magic realism. The characters in the songs are searching for a new idealism, although there are some personal songs in there too.” That’s good enough for us!
