Latest new releases

We kick off 19 October’s six of the best with the aptly titled Natural Rebel from Richard Ashcroft, best-known as frontman of The Verve until they multi-imploded. “My strongest set of songs to date,” says Novello winner Ashcroft about this latest chapter in a hugely successful solo career. Will Oldham yet again mines his own back catalogue, this time as a solo singer-songwriter armed with just voice and guitar in an intimate, spare setting, making a companion piece to a soon-to-be-published lyric book. Greta Van Fleet’s full-length debut nods unashamedly to the classic heavy blues-rock of Led Zeppelin, with ten original songs exploring a variety of topics covering the cycle of life, powered by blazing guitar riffs, soaring vocals, thunderous drums and swaggering basslines. Wanderlust contains ten songs composed by Blancmange’s Neil Arthur on themes of wistfulness, anger, dislocation and fighting for forward motion while seeing, as Arthur puts it, “the pretence of a normal world being erased”. This spirit is also in the music, which is vital, percussive, full of analogue machine-noise and chunky basslines. R.E.M. grew up with the BBC, and this historic relationship is lovingly celebrated across R.E.M. At The BBC, an incredible collection of live and studio gems from the archives between their early days in 1984 right up until 2008, and is a must-have for fans.

Our album of the week is Live From The Ryman, an absolute stormer of a set from Jason Isbell with The 400 Unit that covers songs from both the wildly successful Grammy-nominated recent album The Nashville Sound and classics from across his career. Jason is one of the more important singer-songwriters working in America today, and no home should be without a copy of this album!

5 October sees the release of The Stars, The Ocean & The Moon, on which Echo & The Bunnymen, still led by the indomitable Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant, revisit some of their greatest songs to rearrange and transform them … with strings and things. Prog titans Coheed And Cambria release The Unheavenly Creatures – a 15-track, 78-minute dark epic that will thrill existing fans and draw in a host of new ones; ‘grand’ doesn’t even come close to summing it up adequately. Following on from 2016’s Cartwheels, Ward Thomas return on scorching form with Restless Minds, an album that doesn’t stand still musically, though their trademark harmonies and traces of country influence are still there. Critically acclaimed pop/hip-hop duo Twenty One Pilots return with Trench, which finds them fearlessly reimagining the possibilities of their music through the same candid expression and genuine identity that has made them one of the biggest acts in the world. Shades is a spellbinding blend of grungy blues, raucous garage rock, transcendent psychedelia and soothing, soul-stirring ballads on which Doyle Bramhall II reaches new heights as a multi-instrumentalist, singer and producer.

Our album of the week is Wanderer, the new album by vocalist, songwriter, musician and producer Chan Marshall, a.k.a. Cat Power, a remarkable return from an iconic American voice. The album’s 11 tracks encompass Marshall’s journey so far: “telling my tale, with reverence to the people who did this generations before me. Folk singers, blues singers, and everything in between. They were all wanderers, and I am lucky to be among them.
