Latest new releases

We kick off our recommendations for 2 March with Anna Von Hausswolff’s fourth album, Dead Magic, which confirms her formidable reputation as the creator of a singular world, equal parts black magic and beauty; The five uncompromising tracks here have the stately sound of Copenhagen’s Marmorkirken church organ as their centrepiece. Across four decades Tracey Thorn’s writing has offered up a clear-eyed woman’s view of the immediate world around her; her latest, Record, rotates around a dubby nine-minute Compass Point-style disco jam on which Tracey is joined again by Warpaint’s rhythm section and glorious backing vocals from Corinne Bailey Rae. The Low Anthem have found their true voice with The Salt Doll Went To Measure The Depths Of The Sea: 12 short songs that are fragile, nuanced, and honest. Acoustic arrangements are peppered with subtle and fragmented electronic elements, weaving songs that sound at once organic and highly conceptual. Joan Baez remains a musical force of nature of incalculable influence, and Whistle Down The Wind is the latest installment of a legacy that will reverberate long into the future. Moby’s new album, Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt, is a glowing tapestry exploring spirituality, individuality and the brokenness of humanity that finds him returning to his orchestral, soul, trip-hop and gospel roots.

Our album of the week is All Nerve, the first release by The Breeders’ classic line up – Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson – since 1993’s Last Splash. The Breeders really are back and we really are glad!

We have six of the very best for 23 February to recommend to you. Plunge carries a supernatural charge from beginning to end. Fever Ray’s voice and chiming parallel fifths are enough to make the hairs on your arms stand on end: hit ‘play’ and be instantly transported to a world of heavy skies, visiting magpies, velvet mites. The Wants List 4 features some great in-demand tracks from the ’70s that were rediscovered and cherished by the UK’s rare groove and modern soul scenes from the mid-’80s onwards, some being reissued for the first time ever. Tony Banks’s name is synonymous with stellar musicianship and an impressive, eclectic catalogue of music. His new album, 5, is just what you would expect from him: stunning, evocative, beautifully-orchestrated, and timeless, a shining gem of sonic beauty that truly deserves your attention. On 29 November 2002, the first anniversary of the passing of George Harrison, the tribute Concert For George took place at the Royal Albert Hall, featuring George’s own songs and music he loved, performed by a line-up including Clapton, Jools Holland, Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Ravi and Anoushka Shankar, Ringo Starr and more. Following two highly praised albums with Iamthemorning, Russian virtuoso pianist Gleb Kolyadin affirms his musical authority with his self-titled debut album, an emotive exploration of self-identity, a story of two parts with interweaving leitmotifs.

Our album of the week may be familiar. We featured Alela Diane’s latest two weeks ago, but it was delayed. One happy result of this delay is that it’s had repeated listens. Cusp was recorded when Diane was alone for the first time since becoming a mother. A broken thumbnail meant she had to abandon her signature finger-plucking, resulting in the most piano-driven album of her career, fuelled by that energy that only comes with facing and falling in love with something new.
