Latest new releases

Leading off our top picks for 22 March is an album that wasn’t meant to happen – in fact, Sleeper promised each other it wouldn’t! Thankfully they clearly didn’t listen to each other, and The Modern Age is the outward-facing sound of a band refreshed and revitalised, adding a shiny contemporary feel to Sleeper’s classic pop sensibilities. Lucy Rose uses her voice to devastating effect on No Words Left. In spite of the title, Lucy has plenty to say, and the album is lyrically and musically fearless, a beautifully intense but often unsettling listen with a dash of brooding, Joni Mitchell-like troubadour folk in there as well. Long lauded for jubilant, explosive live shows, Ibibio Sound Machine fully capture that energy on Doko Mien, and album of inventive, glittering collages of genre, for which your dancing shoes will most definitely be required! These New Puritans, the great heretics of British music, return with Inside The Rose, a record unlike anything else you’ll hear this year – 40 minutes of powerful melodies, lush strings and progressive electronics, packed with jaw-dropping sonic left turns. It’s rare to find a ’60s legend still on trailblazing form, but 73-year-old Robin Trower, the iconic guitarist who rose to fame with Procol Harum, finds himself in a golden late bloom of creativity, and his songcraft and soulful performances have never sounded more alive as on Coming Closer To The Day.

Our release of the week is On The Line, the highly anticipated return of Jenny Lewis, which features a backing band of legendary talent including Beck, Benmont Tench, Don Was, Jim Keltner, Ringo Starr and Ryan Adams. Lewis is a songwriter of rare talent and this album proves it all over again.

Our selection of treats from 15 March’s releases start with a stellar collaboration between Karen O, lead singer of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and super-producer Danger Mouse, who has worked with pretty much every musician ever, who have teamed up to make Lux Prima, on which they push each other’s sound out towards the furthest limits and inspire each other to take risks. The Cinematic Orchestra have assembled collaborators old and new to produce To Believe, a definitive new album that explores a timeless question of particular importance in 2019 – what to believe? Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery is the second album from The Comet Is Coming, Mercury-nominated side project of Sons Of Kemet’s Shabaka Hutchings, and serves to expand the trio’s 21st-century take on spiritual jazz. Brian Jonestown Massacre burst into 2019 with a self-titled album that was recorded this time last year and originally slated for release in September but was held back because of the runaway success of their world tour. And Jack Savoretti returns with his stunning new album, Singing To Strangers, feturing highlights such as ‘Touchy Situation’ was co-written with Bob Dylan, and ‘Music’s Too Sad Without You’, co-written with Kylie Minogue.

Our release of the week comes from dazzlingly talented blues-rock guitarist Joanne Shaw Taylor, whose fans include Joe Bonnamassa, Glen Hughes and Jools Holland. She travels back to her roots in Reckless Heart, incorporating her love of soul, blues and rock into what she says is “probably my most honest work to date.
