Latest new releases

We start our recommended releases for 27 October with the beautiful jazz voice of Gregory Porter, whose Nat King Cole & Me is a deeply personal tribute to the legendary crooner who ignited Gregory’s love of music. Twenty years after they first broke through with their debut, Stereophonics bring us their tenth studio album, Scream Above The Sounds; let’s see if it performs as well as their last, which went straight to number 1 on release in 2015. Joe Henry’s gift for sparse, lovely Americana-tinged songs is front-and-centre on his latest album, Thrum, whose songs are languidly paced, rooted in a slower time when bluesmen rambled country roads and made deals with the devil to become artistic greats. Baxter Dury’s ability to paint a lyrical picture remains sharp on his fifth album, Prince Of Tears, which has his his usual shabby-chic vibe and spare, snappy arrangements … but this time with strings adding swoon to the proceedings. Weezer’s eleventh studio album, Pacific Dream, is full of melodic mastery and craftsmanship and navigates the space between reality and dreams, leaving the listener unsure whether they’re daydreaming the world of the album or being daydreamed by it! During an impressive career the award-winning Scottish singer Julie Fowlis has, until now, sung primarily in Scottish Gaelic, but the Latin title of her fifth studio album, alterum, suggests it will be something different. Courtney Pine releases his brand new album, Black Notes From The Deep – the nineteenth of his career, and one of his most varied and eclectic to date, ranging as it does from funk-tinged foot-tappers to beautiful, tender ballads.

Our album of the week is Julien Baker’s haunting Turn Out The Lights, a deeply empathetic album that embraces the greys and complex truths of humanity and mental health and deserves to be heard by a wide audience.

Our recommended new releases for 20 October are an exciting octet! Margo Price’s second album, All American Made, delivers on the rich promise of her debut: it’s an unflinchingly honest depiction of the trials of everyday life, painting poetic portraits of men and women just trying to get by. Widely considered to be one of the greatest albums ever made as well as The Smiths’ finest work, The Queen Is Dead has cast a significant influence over subsequent generations since it was first released in the summer of 1986; now, 31 years after its original release, comes a newly mastered version with a ton of extras. After a loooong wait, Matt Johnson has delivered a piece of art. Radio Cineola: Trilogy is 3 discs-worth of material from The The, including the new single, some eclectic cover versions, poetry, soundscapes and broadcasts from Matt’s Radio Cineola transmissions – not cheap, but essential. Lucinda Williams has taken a bold and surprising gamble by re-imagining a neglected 1992 album as This Sweet Old World, but it pays off in spades! Ane Brun has boldly covered 14 classics on her 7th studio album, Leave Me Breathless, that run from Radiohead to Nick Cave via Mariah Carey! Trivuim’s 8th, The Sin & The Sentence, is the very first time it has all come together for them on one record, and stakes their claim with authority to be one of the leading bands in modern metal. Sons Of Apollo’s debut, Psychotic Symphony, is a brilliant fusion of prog metal, contemporary grooves and classic rock, which should come as no surprise given that both Mike Portnoy and Derek Sherinian, last together in Dream Theater, are involved.

Our album of the week sees the return of one of the great unheralded singer-songwriters. Michael Head’s first new album in over 11 years, Adios Señor Pussycat, is a beautiful and evocative album recorded in his home-town of Liverpool after four years of hard work. Equal to his finest moments, this will further cement his reputation as one of this generation’s greatest songwriters.
