Latest new releases

With temperatures soaring out there, we’ve got some beautifully cool new music for 30 July. Up first is Stand For Myself, the anthemic new album from Yola, a sophisticated and diverse sonic mix of symphonic soul and classic pop with nuanced lyrics about black feminine strength, collective awakening and loving connection – for Yola, living is more than merely surviving. 2020 was not quite what Jay Farrar had hoped for the 25th anniversary of Son Volt, who were forced into lockdown rather than out on a triumphant tour. Farrar’s ‘reverie’ during that time became Electro Melodier, a unique blend of folk, country, blues, soul and rock featuring social protest songs and personal reflections, an album that asks questions rather than demanding answers. John Murry’s third album, The Stars Are God’s Bullet Holes, is full of startling imagery and insinuating melodies, of cold moonlight and searing heat, and it penetrates you to the very heart, searing with its burning honesty, its unsparing intimacy and its twisted beauty. Animal – a word thrown into a lyric simply to match a rhythm – captured the essence of LUMP, a product of Brit Award-winning Laura Marling and Mercury Prize-winning Mike Lindsay: a sense of hedonism, of desires running wild, of instincts, and the world turned upside down. Through LUMP we find our inner animal. On Private Space, their third album, Durand Jones & The Indications find a previously untapped vibe informed by synthy modern soul and disco beats, and the 10 tracks are both an escapist fantasy and a much-needed resilience and regrouping after a tumultuous year. Private Space is arriving at just the right time.

Our release of the week can only be Billie Eilish’s highly anticipated 16-track second studio album, Happier Than Ever, which continues where her multi-Grammy Award-winning, record-breaking debut album When We All Go To Sleep, Where Do We Go? left off. Happier Than Ever was written entirely by 19-year-old Billie and produced by her brother Finneas in Los Angeles.

Our six of the best for 23 July starts with Gold-Diggers Sound, a soulful new R&B collection from Leon Bridges birthed from extended late nights at the Los Angeles studio of the same name where he lived, worked, and drank over the course of two years. Triage finds Rodney Crowell looking inwards for answers on what he has called his most personal record yet, contending with political and environmental themes from a place of healing, love and solution, and it’s released at the perfect time. In 2020, 4AD turned 40. Never one to be on time for a party, the label is commemorating that landmark a year later with the release of Bills & Aches & Blues, in which 18 of its current artists cover a song each of their choosing from 4AD’s past: a creative experiment rooted in the spirit of collaboration and a snapshot of 4AD four decades after its inception. Mudhoney’s classic 1991 album Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, released just before Nirvana’s Nevermind and considered a landmark of the grunge era, has been remastered and expanded with rare and previously unreleased tracks and liner notes by band biographer Keith Cameron. Stone Temple Pilots embraced experimentation and open-mindedness to record the band’s third album, 1996’s Tiny Music… Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop, released 25 years ago and now getting the deluxe treatment with bonus tracks, and the super-deluxe edition includes an exclusive live concert from 1997.

Our release of the week comes from Jackson Browne, who – nearly five decades after his debut album – combines that record’s soulful intimacy with a power and wisdom gained from a life pursuing positive change on his latest, Downhill From Everywhere.
