Latest new releases
We start off our 8 lovely recommended releases for 31 March with Bob Dylan’s Triplicate, in which the master continues to mine the great American songbook to fine effect. Silver Eye, the follow-up to 2013’s Tales Of Us, is a blend of satisfyingly deep and dark electronica shot through with gorgeous melodies that could only be Goldfrapp. Keston Cobblers Club create a rich dynamic on Almost Home, with vocals threaded together beautifully and a real musical warmth produced by its folk sensibilities, lovely! In The Same Room is the first of a series of live studio recordings from Domino Records artists, this set from Julia Holter comprises newly arranged songs from 3 of her albums, and is both an essential purchase for anyone who witnessed her beguiling band on tour and the perfect intro to a fascinating artist. Rodney Crowell demonstrates again just what a perfect songwriter he is with the release of Close Ties, and as ever he effortlessly balances personal recollection, sophistication and musical reach. And Future Funk pioneers Jamiroquai return with their eighth studio album, Automaton – their first new music in 7 years.
Release of the week belongs to Let The Dancers Inherit The Party by the endlessly creative, surprising and downright fabulous British Sea Power, which in a right-thinking world would be in every home.

The new release juggernaut rolls on with some mighty fine albums for 24 March! Southampton’s very own Creeper release their debut album this week, called Eternity In Your Arms, a varied and ambitious effort which is perfectly executed and succeeds admirably. I’ve seen Devon Sproule’s music described as North American music with weirdo roots, which perfectly encapsulates what she does; new album The Gold String is no different and all the better for it. You Had Me At Goodbye is a worthy successor to Samantha Crain’s very fine 2015 Under Branch & Thorn & Tree – just great! The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn continues on We All Want The Same Things to explore the themes of love and partnership in the modern world through some finely etched character studies – recommended. Brand New Day finds eclectic unit The Mavericks as inspired as ever, creating a one-of-a-kind sound that blends elements of rock, latin, folk, blues and country into a unified whole. Steve Hackett’s latest is intended as a wake-up call, a Night Siren if you will, during times of strife and division, and Steve’s signature virtuoso playing is accompanied by musicians from several countries. The Soul of Jamaica is just that; it celebrates the original acoustic style of reggae music and Inna De Yard includes a stellar cast of collaborators who helped record the album in just 4 days!
Release of the week is The Jesus And Mary Chain’s first studio album since 1998’s Munki, the aptly named Damage And Joy, which features the two Reid brothers doing what they do best!
