Latest new releases
Our six lovelies for 28 September start with Cavalier, the new studio album from Eddi Reader, who celebrates her 40th(!) year as a live performer with a new creative peak in an already prestigious career. New studio album Can U Cook finds Seasick Steve mixing up all of his much-loved ingredients to deliver a fresh new record that’s full of sunshine, as well as being a good ol’ Seasick mix of boogie, blues, rock, americana and folk music. The inimitable Graham Parker is back with a new album, Cloud Symbols. With his Rumour packed away, Graham enlists a new gang, The Goldtops – featuring former Rumour member Martin Belmont. “The end result captures exactly the kind of music I should be making today,” says Graham. The eighth album from Marissa Nadler is the sound of turmoil giving way to truth. On For My Crimes, Nadler has found a stronger sense of self and a sharper voice as both a songwriter and a vocalist, culminating in her most evocative entry in an already impressive discography. Welsh rock trio The Joy Formidable take yet another huge step forward with fourth album AAARTH, a transformative, near-psychedelic rebirth that channels long-held anger. Propelled by restlessness and curiosity, the band continue to sit at the forefront of inventive and aggressive guitar music.
Release of the week is An American Treasure, a 60-track career-spanning retrospective celebrating the life and work of Tom Petty. The set unveils dozens of newly discovered recordings from Tom’s vaults that spotlight his remarkable depth and evolution as a revered and tremendously influential songwriter and performer. It has been curated with care by family and bandmates as a tribute and a love letter to the Tom Petty they knew, and comes strongly recommended.

21 September’s recommendations start with ZZ Top’s Billy F Gibbons, who returns to his first love on The Big Bad Blues: a superb collection of down and dirty, raw rock ’n’ roll blues, with Billy – one of the world’s finest guitarists working in the blues-rock idiom – clearly relishing the chance to celebrate his musical roots. Beak>’s third album, >>>, continues the band’s journey through their own genre of oddness, bringing their sound into sharp focus without forfeiting what the band see as its ‘wrongness’. Slash returns with Living The Dream, once again featuring the Conspirators. It sounds like a funked-up, souped-up version of vintage Aerosmith, and you can’t say fairer than that! Redemption, the third consecutive album of all-original material from Joe Bonamassa, is an exhilarating collection of ambitious and diverse material, continuing to redefine and push back the barriers of blues-rock. Macy Gray reaffirms and reasserts her place in the canon of modern music, channelling the spirit of the ‘grimy’ R&B and smoky jazz closest to her heart. Her new album, Ruby, represents Macy at her most passionate, poetic and powerful.
Our album of the week comes from Villagers. Always restless and inventive while always true to the power and glory of song-writing and melody, their fourth studio album, The Art Of Pretending To Swim reconnects with the multi-faceted approach of earlier work while adding a new-found soulfulness, rhythmic nous and dazzling panoply of sonic detail, and is the most brilliantly realised Villagers album to date.
