Latest new releases
23 March’s garden of earthly delights opens with Boarding House Reach, an overflowing artistic statement that burns with the passion and fury as any of Jack White’s earlier releases. This star-studded album swirls with perplexing ideas and musical genres. New York trio Sunflower Bean’s second album, Twentytwo In Blue, shows the band staying true to their guitar-band core and classic rock-inspired roots while exploring new sonic textures with more direct and progressive themes. Over And Out is a testament to his talent, his winning way with words, an incredible joie de vivre and a spirit that never flagged. He’ll be missed, but Over And Out is a great way to remember him. Staying At Tamara’s is a finger-snapping, brass-blaring, wind-in-the-hair collection of “songs about escapism, dreaming, anxieties and love” that George Ezra wrote while staying in various rural locations and in a Barcelona apartment owned by the Tamara of the album’s title. Martin Freeman’s jazz radio show has had an enormous impact, and Jazz On The Corner collects his favourite jazz in an incredible journey from rolling hard bop, via screaming soul organ, jazz-funk and original acid jazz, onwards to the postmodern spiritual jazz of Kamasi Washington.
Our album of the week is May Your Kindness Remain by Courtney Marie Andrews, whose music has been compared to John Prine, Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, Laura Marling and Julie Byrne. Her breakthrough album, Honest Life, became one of the hottest releases of 2017.

We’ve picked out 6 fine releases for 16 March. On There’s A Riot Going On, Yo La Tengo have channelled a fear similar to that which drove Sly And The Family Stone’s paranoia classic into a calming album that functions simultaneously as both a direct response to and a welcome distraction from the chaos at hand. Creep Show brings together John Grant and the dark funk of analogue electronic band Wrangler to create Mr Dynamite – a consistently inventive debut album packed with experimental pop and surreal funk. The platinum-selling and Grammy-winning Stone Temple Pilots, one of the best-selling bands of the 1990s, release their highly anticipated self-titled new album – their first with the new lead singer, Jeff Gutt. Scottish indie rock legends The Fratellis follow the success of their critically acclaimed top 20 album Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied, with a charming, playful and energetic new album, In Your Own Sweet Time. Here Come The Aliens marks a fresh start for Kim Wilde, with the strongest set of songs in the iconic singer’s extraordinary near 40-year career. Vocally, she has never sounded better.
Our release of the week is I’ll Be Your Girl, on which The Decemberists embrace such diverse influences as Roxy Music and New Order to spark a new creative path. “Our ambition this time was really just to get out of our comfort zone,” says leader Colin Meloy. The songs share an “exuberant nihilism; an apocalyptic dance party was what we envisioned.” This is the sound of a veteran band finding new inspiration, unafraid of challenging itself.
