Latest new releases

Our first recommendation for 16 November comes from The Smashing Pumpkins; 4 years after Monuments To An Elegy, Billy Corgan has gathered together three quarters of the original line-up and Shiny And Oh So Bright is the exciting and fascinating result. The traditional instruments of Mumford & Sons’ first two albums return on Delta, but this time fed through a number of different effects so that they’ve become unrecognisable. The result is innovative and experimental but always highly listenable. Down The Road Wherever features 14 unhurriedly elegant compositions by Mark Knopfler in a sound he describes as “the Delta meets the Tyne”. His guitar playing is as deft and richly melodic as ever. Jean-Michel Jarre returns after 40 years to his 1978 masterpiece in Equinoxe Infinity, a concept album about the watchers (the characters with binoculars) as being part of the struggle between human and artificial intelligence. We don’t normally recommend reissues, but we can’t miss out Kate Bush Remastered, freshly mastered versions of her entire catalogue; 16 November brings us her first 7 albums, with the rest coming on the 30th. It’s hard to think of a more perfect run of singer-songwriter albums. Suffice to say these are all essential.

Merrie Land is the second album from supergroup The Good, The Bad & The Queen – Damon Albarn, Paul Simonon, Tony Allen and Simon Tong – back after a decade with a questioning goodbye letter, a series of observations and reflections on Britishness in 2018. The timing could not be more apt, and there could not be a more perfect band to untangle the optimism, disorientation and confusion in the atmosphere today.

Leading off 2 November’s fab five is More Blood, More Tracks, the latest chapter in the highly acclaimed Bob Dylan Bootleg Series. This volume – the 14th – contains 11 recordings made during the sessions for the artist’s 1975 masterpiece, Blood On The Tracks, which redefined the boundaries and structures of modern pop songwriting. The Prodigy return with some of their fiercest ever tunes on No Tourists, proving that Liam Howlett, Maxim and Keef Flint remain riotous two decades since they changed the face and sound of electronic music with the epochal The Fat Of The Land. There are few bands that can or will match Sweden’s Opeth, one of the best bands on the planet on record or on stage; and Garden Of The Titans, recorded live in 2017 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver, contains tracks spanning the band’s nearly 30-year career. Dionysus is the hotly anticipated new album from acclaimed Australian duo Dead Can Dance: seven movements in two acts in the form of an oratorio that represent the different facets of the myth and cult of Dionysus, taking inspiration from across the world, making tracks that evolve less like songs and more akin to fragments of the cohesive whole.

Our release of the week is She Remembers Everything, on which Rosanne Cash proves that dreams still beckon in a damaged world, and renders them with fierce grace. Familiar yet alien, Cash’s take on being a woman in the world reveals just how much has gone awry. She Remembers Everything contains echoes of nearly all the styles she’s used during four decades as a recording artist.
