Latest new releases

Our six crackers for this week start with Nocturne – The Piano Album, a soothing collection of solo piano pieces by Vangelis, featuring 11 new compositions inspired by night-time and his long-held passion for space, plus ‘Chariots of Fire’ and the ‘Love Theme’ from Blade Runner – guaranteed to relax us all at a fraught time! British alt-rock legends Swervedriver’s brand-new album, Future Ruins, exhibits their fabled widescreen escapism, but with a tension that echoes the sleeve image of Coney Island in skeletal monochrome, like a post-mortem photograph of a failed utopia. Jay Buchanan, singer of American blues-rock maestros Rival Sons, said of Feral Roots: “The primal intensity reflects a certain unrest at the heart of the album. With its nuanced explorations of both the wild and domestic struggles of love and truth, the album ultimately argues for pushing beyond pure survival instincts and striving for something more exalted.” I’m not sure exactly what that means, but the album is great! Hot on the heels of their acclaimed 2016 album Bounce, The Beat featuring Ranking Roger release Public Confidential, which showcases the band at their joyful skanking best with 10 brand-new songs pointing the finger at the mess of current politics, and is chock-full of catchy, bass-led reggae ska. Shimmer Into Nature is the debut solo album by Ed Wynne, psychedelic visionary and founder of the legendary Ozric Tentacles, whose incredible flair for creating masterful tapestries of sound will grab fans of psychedelic music.

Our release of the week is At The Edge Of Light, over the course of whose ten songs legendary former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett unites a vast number of styles ranging from guitar-driven rock to epic orchestration, from world music to the reflective and atmospheric, all brought together in his unique style.

Our super six for 18 January start off with Steve Mason’s latest, About The Light, which marks a change in approach for Steve: “I decided with this album to get my live band involved at every stage to capture the energy that we produce when we play live shows.” For over a decade, Steve Gunn has been one of American music’s pivotal figures, releasing acclaimed solo albums alongside exploratory collaborations; on his breakthrough fourth album, The Unseen In Between, he explores his own emotional landscapes with his most complex, fully realised set of songs to date. As thrilling and unpredictable as anything in Deerhunter’s near 15-year career, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? is a science-fiction album about the present, on which the band reinvent their approach to instruments; whatever guitars are left are pure chrome, plugged straight into the mixing desk with no amplifier or vintage warmth. Following the 2015 release of the critically acclaimed Fast Forward, legendary songwriter Joe Jackson is releasing the 20th studio album of his career. Fool is the fulfilment of a career-long dream: to finish a tour and head straight into the studio with the band firing on all cylinders. So Joe wrapped up his 2018 summer tour and entered the studio on the following day. The Twilight Sad’s ascent has been forged the old way with grit, graft and four exceptional studio albums; now signed to Mogwai’s Rock Action Records, the band’s fifth album, It Won’t Be Like This, will certainly not disappoint fans of their previous work.

Our release of the week is Remind Me Tomorrow from Sharon Van Etten, an ambitious album with curling low vocals and brave intimacy that provokes our most sensitive impulses: reckless affections, spirited nurturing, and tender courage. The songs are as resonant as ever, the themes still an honest and subtle approach to love and longing.
