Latest new releases

19 April’s hot six blasts off with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Pearl Jam, who return with their highly anticipated new album, Dark Matter, produced by Andrew Watt. It All Comes Down to This takes A Certain Ratio back to their roots, with 10 straight-to-the-point tracks performed by the core 3-piece line-up and a sprinkling of electronics for good measure, it continues the constant progression demonstrated by the band. This Ain’t the Way You Go Out is an album constructed from the ashes of despair, nurturing the tiniest of green shoots and giving life to something that had looked otherwise spent, as Lucy Rose re-awakens herself to the power of music. Live on Mountain Stage: Outlaws & Outliers compiles some highlights from four decades of the ‘Mountain Stage’ radio programme, curated by the show’s co-founder and long-time host, Larry Groce, many documenting now iconic artists in their formative years. And Grammy- and Oscar-winning producer, musician and songwriter T Bone Burnett is back to form with an album of 12 folk tracks featuring artists Lucius, Roseanne Cash and Weyes Blood: ultimately, in looking for ‘you’, T Bone Burnett found himself on The Other Side.

There can be only one choice for our release of the week. Undeniable, unreviewable and unstoppable: the behemoth that is Taylor Swift returns with The Tortured Poets Department – her eleventh studio album. Nothing more needs to be said.

First of 12 April’s six bangers is One Deep River, which features 12 future classics from Mark Knopfler, and his warm vocal tone, his poetic storytelling lyrics and deft, richly melodic guitar playing are all present and correct and as dazzling as ever. Blue Öyster Cult is set to captivate fans with Ghost Stories, a collection of lost gems including the only known studio recording of their concert classic, the MC5 cover ‘Kick Out the Jams’ – all of which finally sees the light of day. Imagine you’ve gone to space, and it turns out it’s almost identical to Doncaster: that’s the feel of English Teacher’s debut album, This Could Be Texas, which is about in-betweens, about home and about trying to find tolerance in an increasingly polarised society. Our Brand Could Be YR Life is Bodega’s best-sounding record to date, adding touches of dance-punk, shoegaze, slacker rock and psychedelic rock to help them carve a new future from fuzz-soaked, consumerism-skewering shards of their past. Metz, a band once known for blowing out eardrums with songs of joyous rage, have been exploring ways to turn abrasiveness into atmospherics, and the evolution of their sound towards Up On Gravity Hill reflects a changed world that demands nuance and compassion to comprehend and to survive.

Our release of the week comes from contemporary jazz icon Shabaka, who has put down the saxophone – the instrument he has become synonymous with in ensembles such as The Comet Is Coming and Sons of Kemet – in favour of the flute for his first full-length album under his own name: Perceive Its Beauty, Acknowledge Its Grace is a deeply moving suite of primarily instrumental music, reflective and contemplative, with help fom Andre 3000, Lianne La Havas, Moses Sumney, Floating Points and more.
