Latest new releases
Kicking off 25 August’s releases we have Villains, the seventh album from Josh Homme’s band Queens Of The Stone Age, who have managed the tricky feat of producing an album that moves their sound forward but still sounds like the Queens. Even if you can’t make it to their in-store album launch, The Loved Ones by Flyte is well worth checking out for its intricate indie-pop songwriting and plethora of harmonies. Iron & Wine’s new album, Beast Epic, is a series of vignettes, observations and regular songs that redeem through joy and a certain expectation of grace. On Holiday Destination, her brilliant and compelling third album, Nadine Shah widens her focus from complicated relationships to the world at large. Exile In The Outer Ring is a portrait in which EMA renders Middle American poverty and resentment with frightening realism and deep empathy. Light In Your Mind is Cymbals’ first album in 2 years: guitar-flecked electro at its most hypnotic and sublime; its unfettered adrenaline rush is fun with a capital ‘F’. Oh Sees return with their umpteenth album, Orcs, and they are in gut-pleasingly heavy form, nimbly mixing dashes of abandon and menace on this fresh batch of brooders and bruisers. Susanne Sundfør’s dark heart gets more introspective on Music For People In Trouble; to deceptively sparse accompaniment of slide and acoustic guitar and piano, she struggles to contextualise a world that continues as normal despite relentless internal and external conflict.
Release of the week is A Deeper Understanding, the culmination of 3 and a half years’ work by War On Drugs since the release of the epic Lost In The Dream, and that rarest of things – a true band album which shines with an unbridled exuberance and a real sense of exploration. Highly recommended.

The summer break for new releases has ended, and it was a bit of a struggle to condense the offerings for 18 August down to 8!
First up, modern prog maestro Steven Wilson finally debuts on a major label with the sonically and melodically stunning To The Bone, a high-definition snapshot of the disconcerting times we live in. The Duke Spirit follow up 2016’s marvellous Kin with a poignant new album, Sky Is Mine, on which each song looks for humanity on a global scale: beautiful dream pop. Judy Dyble, original vocalist of Fairport Convention, has produced Summer Dancing with Andy Lewis, a work of the essence of British psychedelia, emerging from somewhere between Broadcast and Stereolab, which is a very good thing indeed. If you like your indie music huge, anthemic and stuffed full of driving synth riffs but with a real pop sensibility, This Life, Vol.1 from The Coasts is right up your alley! James Lavelle says of UNKLE’s fifth studio album, The Road, Part 1: “I wanted to make an album that goes back to the roots of where I came from, but with a foot in modern London,” and he has. Wildwood Kin’s debut album, Turning Tides, borrows heavily from the folk tradition while delving into other genres with an inventive use of electronics that creates a spectral atmosphere. With bouncy percussion and swaggering guitar riffs married to sneeringly irresistible vocals, The Sherlocks’ Live For The Moment is an upbeat indie gem.
Album of the week is the latest from Grizzly Bear. While 2012’s Shields dealt with the interpersonal barriers we construct and hide behind, Painted Ruins focuses on what happens when these facades crumble and reveal our vulnerabilities, exploring the inner conflicts we experience when our best-laid plans fall apart.
