Latest new releases
Our 8 lovely non-summery recommended releases for 28 July are as follows: The indefatigable Fall release their umpteenth studio album, New Facts Emerge, which is full of the usual snarling lyrics and spiky rhythms and proves the great John Peel’s view of the Fall: “always different, always the same.” James Vincent McMorrow delivers his fourth album, True Care, an invigorating mix of introspection, memory and piercing memory. Santana & The Isley Brothers have collaborated on The Power Of Peace, a journey through soul, funk, jazz and blues that sounds simply fantastic. Boris are back with a real blast of a thing, as heavy and crunchy as ever. Apparently the band were thinking of wrapping things up; we’re grateful that they didn’t! Alice Cooper’s new studio album, Paranormal, his first for 6 years, also comes with a bonus disc featuring a couple of extra new songs and some carefully selected live numbers. We don’t normally include reissues among our recommendations, but the 2-CD/2-LP reissue of Radiator by Super Furry Animals is an essential release that demands inclusion. This Is Trojan is a truly stunning 6-LP set, a perfect introduction to the wonderful world of Trojan Records and the very best of vintage Jamaican sounds, presented on vinyl the way they were intended to be heard.
Album of the week is Everything Now by Arcade Fire, which is addictive and wondrously light. Win Butler says: “There’s sort of an everything-nowness to life. I feel like almost every event and everything that happens surrounds you on all sides. It’s trying to capture some of the experiences of being alive now in all its flaws and all its glory.” That’s good enough for us!

21 July brings the following gems: The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band have hit on a winning groove with their eighth album, Lay It Down, that mixes traditional blues shuffles and soulful workouts with countrified ballads. Chris Robinson Brotherhood’s third album of new material in little more than 2 years, Barefoot In The Head, sees the songwriting within the band continue to grow stronger, and the loose yet tight musicianship gives this album a wonderful easy rolling quality that can only be achieved by a group of artists tuned to the same sonic wavelength. What Do You Think About the Car?, the eagerly awaited debut album from Declan McKenna, features his signature combo of smart, engaged lyrics tied to a fizzing alt-pop sound – he’s more than just another singer songwriter. After being away from the music biz for several years, Damian Marley returns with a homage to Stony Hill, where he grew up in Jamaica, recorded with his brother Stephen. Defying Gravity neatly showcases Mr. Big’s trademark crunch allied to an acute sense of melody that never escapes them; the band’s pursuit of creative excellence shines through. Time to get noisy! Punk-metallers Tau Cross release their second album, Pillar Of Fire, a moody melting pot of dark post-punk and anthemic hard rock shot through with 16th-century English mysticism. Wintersun’s third album, The Forest Seasons, develops their ability to create otherwordly epic metal; it’s a foray into the world of symphonic metal that oozes bravado throughout.
Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbot’s third album, Crooked Calypso, boasts all the hallmarks of Heaton’s peerless songwriting: songs buoyant with melody and redolent with biting wit, but also full of real emotion, and that makes it our album of the week.
