Okkervil River – In The Rainbow Rain

Release date: 27 April

Okkervil River - In The Rainbow Rain
  • In The Rainbow Rain is Okkervil River’s most immediate – and meaningful – album to date. On it, bandleader Will Sheff makes a startling left turn from their critically lauded inward-looking 2016 album Away, crafting instead an exuberant declaration of hope. In place of Away’s somber strings and acoustic textures, In The Rainbow Rain is full of dazzling colour, spattered with starbursts of electric guitar, big blooms of synth, and a chorus of backing vocals. It’s a buoyant and playful record, but also open and emotionally vulnerable.

Blossoms – Cool Like You

Release date: 27 April

Blossoms - Cool Like You
  • Blossoms return with their second album, Cool Like You – 11 tracks of ’80s-inspired synth-layered pop bliss. The band bring the tempo up on lead single ‘I Can’t Stand It’ and combine it with cascading synth riffs, while ‘There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls)’ brings a previously unheard anthemic rock quality to the band’s sound.
  • The deluxe 2-CD version comes with a mint pack and a 12-page booklet and bonus disc containing an acoustic version of the album.

Release date: 27 April

Van Morrison & Joey DeFrancesco - You’re Driving Me Crazy
  • On his 39th studio album, Van Morrison joins forces with jazz organ virtuoso Joey DeFrancesco. Recorded over just a few days in San Francisco, You’re Driving Me Crazy showcases electrifying musical collaborations, fresh interpretations of blues and jazz standards such as ‘Miss Otis Regrets’, ‘The Things I Used To Do’ and ‘Every Day I Have The Blues’ and deep cuts from Van’s songbook including ‘Have I Told You Lately’, ‘The Way Young Lovers Do’ and ‘Magic Time’.

Gaz Coombes – World’s Strongest Man

Release date: 4 May

Gaz Coombes - World’s Strongest Man
  • World’s Strongest Man is the magnificent third solo album by Gaz Coombes, the follow-up to 2015’s critically acclaimed Matador.
  • This remarkable collection of eleven deeply personal songs set to expansive, addictive melodies has been inspired by an eclectic mix of sources such as Grayson Perry’s autobiography The Descent of Man, Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked masculinity, Neu!, hip-hop, and a whole lot more besides. From the deep soul purge of the title track to the coruscating Fripp-goes-motorik sprint of ‘Deep Pockets’ via the gorgeous cyclonic ballad ‘Slow Motion Life’ and the raw-as-hell stream of consciousness panic attack of ‘Vanishing Act’, World’s Strongest Man is a bold, ambitious, free-thinking, future-facing rock’n’roll record.
  • Following the release of Matador, Gaz evolved from ‘former Supergrass frontman’ to hugely respected Mercury Prize-nominated solo artist in the space of just ten months. That album spawned five singles, was described by Q magazine as “his masterpiece” and labelled an “instant classic” by Mojo. Like Matador, World’s Strongest Man was written, recorded and produced by Gaz Coombes at his home studio and at Oxford’s Courtyard Studios, with co-production from long time studio partner Ian Davenport in a working process Gaz compares to what it must be like to edit a novel.
  • Note: the LP version is available on indies-only pink vinyl.

Frank Turner – Be More Kind

Release date: 4 May

Frank Turner - Be More Kind
  • Be More Kind represents a thematic and sonic line in the sand for 36-year-old Hampshire-born singer-songwriter Frank Turner. It’s a record that combines universal anthems with raw emotion, the political with the personal, and the intricate folk and punk roar trademarks of Turner’s sound imbued with new, bold experimental shades.

Courtney Barnett – Tell Me How You Really Feel

Release date: 15 May

Courtney Barnett - Tell Me How You Really Feel
  • The Grammy- and Brit-nominated Courtney Barnett returns with her second album, Tell Me How You Really Feel. The new collection follows her critically acclaimed 2015 debut, Sometimes I Sit And Think And Sometimes I Just Sit…, and her recent Top 10 collaboration with Kurt Vile, Lotta Sea Lice.
  • One of the most distinctive voices in music today, Courtney is known for mixing witty observations with unflinching self-assessment. Although her trademark eye for story telling and clever turns of phrase are still there, Tell Me How You Really Feel has a more serious and outward-looking tone, capturing the current social landscape while retaining moments of intimacy and warmth. On lead single ‘Nameless, Faceless’, she claps back at internet trolls with a catchy, bright garage stroller that takes anonymous online hatred to its inevitable real-world conclusion: “I want to walk through the park in the dark/ Men are scared that women will laugh at them/ I want to walk through the park in the dark/ Women are scared that men will kill them.
  • As the world becomes more familiar with Courtney Barnett these songs feel comforting and emphatic, yet that raw energy and the ability to make the listener think still remain.
  • Note: the LP is an indies-only version on red vinyl and comes in a gatefold sleeve.

Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks – Sparkle Hard

Release date: 18 May

Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks - Sparkle Hard
  • Sparkle Hard, the new album from Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks, is light ’n’ breezy, head-down heavy, audacious, melancholic and reflective, good-time and bodacious, and it pulls off the smartest trick: it’s both unmistakeably The Jicks and – due to the streamlining of their trademark tics and turns, plus the introduction of some unexpected flourishes – The Jicks refashioned. Where 2014’s Wig Out At Jag Bags balanced the lengthy prog workouts of Pig Lib with Mirror Traffic’s sparky pop moments, Sparkle Hard bears less obvious direct relation to what’s come before.
  • The reality of modern life sits close to the surface on Sparkle Hard, cutting to the chase whether it’s a proto-punk grind or a back-porch country duet doing the talking. The album also has turbocharged energy and enthusiasm by the truckload.

Neko Case – Hell-On

Release date: 1 June

Neko Case - Hell-On
  • Producer/singer/songwriter Neko Case has won a large and loyal audience for her smoky, sophisticated vocals and the downcast beauty of her music. Now more than 23 years into her musical calling, Case is the consummate career artist – fearless and versatile, with a fierce work ethic and a constant drive to search deeper within herself for creative growth. Her new album, Hell-On, is an incredible collection of colourful, enigmatic storytelling that features some of her most daring, through-composed arrangements to date.
  • Note: the LP is available on indies-only coloured vinyl, limited to 500 copies.

Johnny Marr – Call The Comet

Release date: 15 June

Johnny Marr - Call The Comet
  • Recorded with his band in Manchester at his Crazy Face studios, Call The Comet is the third solo record from former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, and follows the critically acclaimed The Messenger (2013) and Playland (2014), both of which made the UK top 10.
  • Call The Comet is set in the not-too-distant future,” says Marr, “and is mostly concerned with the idea of an alternative society. It’s my own magic realism.” Songs include ‘Actor Attractor’, ‘Walk Into The Sea’, ‘Bug’, and recent live favourite ‘Spiral Cities’. “The characters in the songs are searching for a new idealism, although there are some personal songs in there too. It’s something that people like me can relate to.
  • The LP is available on exclusive purple vinyl, only available from record shops.

Gruff Rhys – Babelsberg

Release date: 8 June

Gruff Rhys - Babelsberg
  • Babelsberg is the fifth album by Gruff Rhys, his first record for Rough Trade since 2007’s classic Candylion. The album features orchestral scores by Swansea-based composer Stephen McNeff and the incredible work of the 72-piece BBC National Orchestra of Wales. The result is Gruff’s best record to date – a ten-song gazetteer of modern times, each track set to timeless, indelible melodies. Amazingly, for a collection of songs written over two years ago, each one seems to pull very sharp focus on the times we’re living in.
