Latest new releases

We kick off 25 May’s super sextet with Wildness, which taps into something raw and primitive while staying true to the melodic songwriting prowess that brought Snow Patrol to prominence. Biffy Clyro are known for their high-energy gigs, which are likely to leave you with ringing ears, sweaty and possibly discombobulated; MTV Unplugged, recorded at London’s famous Roundhouse, is an opportunity to experience the band in a more intimate and relaxed environment. If you like your country pitch-dark, Gothic and rootsy, then Lindi Ortega’s seventh album, Liberty – a wild spaghetti-western style yarn about heartbreak, revenge and redemption – is for you. Who or what are Sleep? you may well ask. The Sciences, their latest category-defying (metal? not really … sort of) album, a truly massive yet complex and dynamic sonic environment, should convince you that this a band is not to be missed; they are that good. Here We Go Love is the first studio album from The Beat since 1982! – a collection of 13 vital songs that have their feet in the here and now but retain the fire and frenzy of those timeless, immediate classics that made the band’s name.

Synth-pop bands who dabble with experimentation are two a-penny, but only Chvches have perfectly nailed the formula. This is a band with plenty of imitators but few peers. Their third album, Love Is Dead, captures an electric angst with unmatched intensity, and is our release of the week.

We kick off 18 May’s gems with Half Man Half Biscuit’s 14th album, No One Cares About Your Creative Hub So Get Your Fuckin’ Hedge Cut, which will perhaps finally get due recognition for their witty, dry and sardonic lyrical genius; if not, they will remain one of the great undiscovered treasures of UK guitar music. Dancing With The Beast, the new album from Gretchen Peters, brings strong and broken female characters, from teenage girls to old women, to the fore, and intentionally so. With a superb 17-year legacy, the question for Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks was: could they produce a seventh album at that level? Sparkle Hard is the triumphant answer to that question. James Bay returns with Electric Light, full of towering rocky and soulful songs, introducing influences from electronic music to his sound without losing the essence that made him so successful last time out. Ray LaMontagne continues his musical odyssey into British psychedelia and Part Of The Light is some trip, a natural progression from Ouroboros; with something so well crafted and honest, just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Album of the week is Tell Me How You Really Feel, the latest from one of the most distinctive voices in music, Courtney Barnett, who is known for mixing witty observations with unflinching self-assessment. This new collection has a more serious and outward tone, capturing the current social landscape. These songs feel comforting and emphatic yet still full of raw energy and the ability to make the listener think.
