Latest new releases

We kick off a busy week of releases on 26 February with For Those That Wish To Exist, the ninth studio album from post-metalcore quintet Architects, which examines the part we are all playing in the world’s slow destruction and tackles the biggest questions facing the future of our planet. Named for the city that launched the original Alice Cooper group on the road to success 50 years ago, Detroit Stories is a modern-day homage to the toughest and craziest rock ’n’ roll scene there ever was, and the DVD and blu-ray include one of his latest shows, from The Olympia in Paris. In Ferneaux is divided into two long-form journeys on which Blanck Mass use field recordings to gather memories of being with now-distant others, haunted with the vestiges of voices, places, and sensations, building and releasing great aural tension. Lucy Spraggan is unrecognisable from the person of yesteryear, and Choices is aptly named, reflecting on sobriety, embracing a healthier lifestyle, and moving through a divorce to find solace in its wake. This is the vinyl reissue many PJ Harvey fans have long been waiting for! Her fifth studio album, Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea, has been lovingly remastered, and is accompanied by a collection of demos of every track. Lost Horizons’ new album, In Quiet Moments, is an even stronger successor to Ojalá with another distinguished cast of guest artists embellishing the core duo’s gorgeously free-flowing and loose-limbed blueprint. And A Winged Victory For The Sullen’s new album, Invisible Cities, is their stunning score to a critically acclaimed theatre production transformed into 45 minutes of breathtaking beauty, an incredibly emotive body of work.

Our release of the week is an album of our times. Newcastle’s Maxïmo Park return with Nature Always Wins: something of an examination, zeroing in on the notion of the self, identity as a band, that of humanity as a whole, and whether change is capable under the influence of time, perspective and environment, or if we are destined to be bound by our own genetics.

Our winter warmers for 19 February start with Distractions, an album of subtle realignments and connections from Tindersticks: rich in texture and atmosphere, an album that resists easy summation but that is a rewarding listen. Open Door Policy is the eighth studio album from The Hold Steady, the follow-up to 2019’s Thrashing Thru The Passion, and finds the 6-piece line-up in peak form in what Craig Finn describes as “the best band we’ve ever been”. Locked Down And Stripped Back features home recordings of Wedding Present classics, along with two previously unreleased songs: ‘You’re Just A Habit That I’m Trying To Break’ and ‘We Should Be Together’ (a Sleeper cover, featuring Louise Wener on vocals). With each band member recording at home, the recording process was far from easy, but the result really works. Rock legends Whitesnake celebrate the blues sound that helped inspire the band’s multi-platinum career on The Blues Album, which features remixed and remastered versions of the group’s best blues-rock songs. And Jason Lytle of Grandaddy has recorded a solo piano-and-vocal version of the band’s classic 2000 album The Sophtware Slump; having identified three ideal instruments and studios, Covid happened, and he found himself recording in his apartment, just like 20 years before, trying once again to create magic among chaos.

Our release of the week is As The Love Continues from Mogwai, which will please old fans and gain new as it has something for everyone. Both transcendent and surprising, this new album shows that the Mog are still offering solace from the mundane, supplying the soundtrack to whatever movie you are making in your head.
