Calexico – The Thread That Keeps Us

Release date: 26 January

Calexico - The Thread That Keeps Us
  • The Thread That Keeps Us, the ninth studio album from Calexico, is a timely snapshot of the Arizona-bred band: a family portrait capturing their stylistic variety and unpredictability while still finding solace in limitless creativity. In bringing the album to life, vocalist/guitarist Joey Burns and drummer John Convertino found a spiritual home in unusual surroundings – not in Arizona, but on the Northern California coast in a home-turned-studio called the Panoramic House. Built from debris and shipyard-salvaged timber, and dubbed ‘The Phantom Ship’ by the band, the grandiose house and its edge-of-the-world-like ambience soon made their way into the songs. The spectre of California also had a powerful effect: as both dream state and nightmare, its infinite duality is mirrored in the music, giving Calexico a new direction and new edge.
  • With less polish and more grit than ever before, The Thread That Keeps Us both honours enduring traditions and reveals Calexico’s confidence in song writing, ultimately setting a whole new standard for the band.

Ty Segall – Freedom’s Goblin

Release date: 26 January

Ty Segall - Freedom’s Goblin
  • Ty Segall’s latest, Freedom’s Goblin, is thick with deep songwriting resources, be it stomper, weeper, ballad, screamer, banger or funker-upper, all diverted into new Tydentities – each one marking a different impasse, like a flag whirling into a knot, exploding and burning on contact, in the name of love and loathing.

Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa – Black Coffee

Release date: 26 January

Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa - Black Coffee
  • Black Coffee, the new album from powerhouse singer Beth Hart and blues rock guitarist extraordinaire Joe Bonamassa, is all about hard-hitting, rocking soul music. A collection of (mostly) not-so-familiar songs by familiar artists, its earthy, electrified reinventions breathe new life into old numbers while giving the guitarist and the singer plenty of room to show off, all within icy-tight arrangements.
  • It’s been 4 years since their critically acclaimed, Grammy-nominated, No. 1 Billboard Blues album Seesaw was released. They have now reunited for another collection of scorching interpretations of soul gems that pair Hart’s breathtaking vocals and Joe’s masterfully expressive playing. This album features classics made famous by Edgar Winter, Ray Charles, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Lucinda Williams and more.

Machine Head – Catharsis

Release date: 26 January

Machine Head - Catharsis
  • Catharsis is the ninth album from metal titans Machine Head, and it’s actually an amazing thing, best described through the prism of two key Machine Head albums: it’s The Burning Red (1999) meets Through The Ashes Of Empires (2003). The result is the most diverse and important 75 minutes of Machine Head’s career to date.

Turin Brakes – Invisible Storm

Release date: 26 January

Turin Brakes - Invisible Storm
  • Turin Brakes don’t hang about. After seven studio albums and a million records sold worldwide, they could’ve been excused a bit of downtime … but 2016 saw them return with critically acclaimed album Lost Property, coupled with 18 months touring. But along the way new songs just kept on bubbling through, and the band made a hasty return to the studio to strike while the inspiration was buzzing … no downtime!
  • The music on Invisible Storm starts as it has since the beginning – with voices and guitars, and evolves outwards from there – the journey ‘Invisible Storm’ takes runs from the acoustic centre of the band’s sound in tracks like ‘Deep Sea Diver’ and ‘Don’t Know Much’, through to the indie-pop groove of ‘Wait’ and ‘Life Forms’ and far beyond into wide-screen space with ‘Would You be Mine and ‘Other Side of the Sun’.
  • The idea of an invisible storm came to me as a theme during the end of writing the album,” says Olly Knights. “I’ve always loved the quote ‘everyone you meet is fighting their own war, so be kind’. Invisible Storm comes from that sentiment, that we are all at the mercy of our own internal weather systems despite outward appearances that may paint different pictures.
  • The album tries to trace a line between these tense internal struggles and what’s happening outside of ourselves. Perhaps even suggesting a link between the invisible storms of our inner worlds and the outer tensions and social and political storms that seem to be sweeping the world these days.

Django Django – Marble Skies

Release date: 26 January

Django Django - Marble Skies
  • Django Django return after Born Under Saturn with their third album, Marble Skies. After the brilliant, rave-shaped grooves and expansive arrangements of its predecessor, Marble Skies is a more concise and focused offering which recalls the dynamic, genre-blurring music of their debut. It’s a return to form; an album which finds them returning to the handmade, cut-and-paste approach of the past.

Nils Frahm – All Melody

Release date: 26 January

Nils Frahm - All Melody
  • All Melody is Nils Frahm’s 7th studio album, and was born out of the freedom Nils’s new bespoke studio provided has allowed him to explore without restriction. Merging musical flavours like jazz, house and dub all orbit Frahm’s classically influenced core. This album really is all about the melody.

Stick In The Wheel – Follow Them True

Release date: 26 January

Stick In The Wheel - Follow Them True
  • London folk five-piece Stick In The Wheel release the follow-up to their debut album, From Here, which was Mojo’s folk album of the year for 2015. Their second album, Follow Them True, examines rituals and cycles; how we have the power to change ourselves and the world around us, the past repeating itself, ghosts and death, land and place, thieves and beggars. It continues to question the notion of what folk music is, and what it means in 2018.
  • On a record of real vitality, Stick In The Wheel rip apart the preconceptions surrounding folk music and retrieve the tender, beating heart at the centre of so much traditional culture.

Embrace – Love Is A Basic Need

Release date: 9 March

Embrace - Love Is A Basic Need
  • 20 years into their recording career, Embrace make an epic and emphatic return to the fray with their seventh studio album, Love Is A Basic Need. Already being hailed as a return to ‘classic’ Embrace, the album was recorded in the first half of 2017 at the band’s own Magnetic North Studios with Richard McNamara on production duties.
  • Talking about the album, singer Danny McNamara said: “We set out to make an album where every song on it would stand up against the best songs we’ve ever written, and I’m pretty confident we’ve done just that.” On the genesis of the album’s title, he said: “Most people remember to eat, breathe and drink, but too many of us forget about love until it’s too late. Until your whole world implodes or you turn into a monster. The album is about the realisation that without food or water or shelter you die yeah, but the same is also true of love.

Manic Street Preachers – Resistance is Futile

Release date: 6 April

Manic Street Preachers - Resistance is Futile
  • Resistance Is Futile, the new album from Manic Street Preachers, is the first album to be recorded at the band’s new Door to the River Studio in Newport.
  • Say the band: “The main themes of Resistance Is Futile are memory and loss – forgotten history – confused reality and art as a hiding place and inspiration. Musically the album is obsessively melodic and in many ways references the naive energy of ‘Generation Terrorists’ and the orchestral sweep of ‘Everything Must Go’. After delay and difficulties, the record has come together really quickly over the last few months, there has been a surge of creativity and old school hard work.
  • Note: there will be a white vinyl LP version, available only in-store on the day of release. All LP pre-orders will be for the standard black vinyl version.

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 comes on indies-only pink vinyl.
