Latest new releases

The first of our recommended releases for 22 September is from Reverend And The Makers; if their last album, 2015’s Mirrors, was weird and wonderful, The Death Of A King continues the strange feel that seems to attach itself to much of their music. V is, unsurprisingly, the 5th album from The Horrors, and it’s a confidently assertive album that showcases the band at the absolute peak of their not inconsiderable powers. Kitty, Daisy & Lewis’s 4th album, Superscope, continues to harness the trio’s ability to create pop-infused soul, blues and roll’n’roll into an infectious stew. The Killers offer us all another slice of their melodic rock genius with the indispensable Wonderful Wonderful. Post-rock titans Godspeed You! Black Emperor release Luciferian Towers, a bewilderingly complex and emotionally powerful effort that needs to be heard loud. Van Morrison’s 37th (!) studio album, Roll With The Punches, finds him still in awesome voice, marrying a selection of rhythm & blues classics with new self-penned songs to great effect; this is no ‘go through the motions’ album, and is thoroughly recommended. Neil Finn streamed the rehearsal and recording of Out Of Silence live to the world; the songs feature his baroque pop approach, draped in rich, sweeping orchestration and a choir, with minimal guitar and drums.

Our album of the week is Hallelujah Now from Hiss Golden Messenger, the-follow up to 2016’s astonishing Heart Like A Levee. This album is equally fine and demonstrates the stunningly consistent greatness that flows from the pen of M.C. Taylor.

We kick off 15 September’s releases with Concrete And Gold, the ninth studio album from rock behemoths Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl has said that he wants this one to be like Motörhead’s version of Sgt Pepper, and while we’ve no idea what that would sound like, the album is mighty fine indeed. Gary Numan’s 21st (!!) studio album, Savage (Songs From A Broken World) is a set of songs linked by a common theme: set in a dystopian near future were the Earth has been turned into a desert wasteland – let’s all hope that Gaz isn’t a soothsayer! In Contact, the fourth record from progressive alt-metallers Caligula’s Horse, is an immense conceptual work discussing the nature of art and creativity, a celebration of what connects us all as human beings. Ariel Pink releases an album Dedicated To Bobby Jameson, a late LA musician who in 1965 released a self-described ‘throw-away’ folk album under a false name that slowly earned a cult following. Arcane Roots return with an eagerly anticipated second album, Melancholia Hymns, full of anthemic songwriting, fusing alt-rock and electronica to great effect. The Texas Gentlemen’s debut, TX Jelly, is the sound of a band slowly coming together; it’s full of low-slung vintage country-funk, and we can think of no higher recommendation than that. Deer Tick’s latest comes in two parts: Vol. 1 (Sea Of Clouds) showcases their folk-driven rootsy style with just the right amount of grit, while Vol. 2 (Jumpstarting) lets it fly with an injection of punk-inspired garage rock, both featuring songwriting with the perfect balance of heartfelt sincerity and wry wit.

Our release of the week is New Magic, the second album from Son Little: a lovely fusion of blues, old-time R&B, soul and funk with even a dash of hip-hop thrown in for good measure. He’s an Otis Redding – yes, really – for the 21st century. Essential.
