Latest new releases

This week we focus on releases for the next two weeks.

The first of 26th July’s recommended releases is Duck, the seventh studio album from Kaiser Chiefs, a band inspired by the new wave and punk rock music of the late 1970s and 1980s. “Why’s it called Duck?” you may well ask; well, according to singer Ricky Wilson, it just is! Delbert McClinton is a legend among Texas roots-music aficionados for his ability to combine country, blues, soul and rock’n’roll as if there were no distinctions between them. Performing since the late ’50s, his new album, Tall, Dark & Handsome, is very definitely worth the wait. Moving on to 2nd August’s goodies, Ty Segall brings us First Taste, on which he gets introspective after the extroversions of Freedom’s Goblin – yet somehow just as steeped in party beats, even as Ty trails through his back pages; feeling, as if for the first time, the duplexity of core truths. Multi platinum-selling Danish rockers Volbeat build on the psychobilly/punk-tinged rock’n’roll sound they’re known for on Rewind, Replay & Rebound, while reaching for new creative summits: “The whole point for us going into the studio is because you still have something to prove – not just for the fans, but mostly for yourself,” says frontman Michael Poulsen. And finally, 50 years after the fact, Creedence Clearwater Revival release the entire 11-song set they performed Live At Woodstock on 16 August 1969, when they hit peak CCR!

Our album of the week is Guesswork, on which Lloyd Cole has collaborated with, among others, former Commotions bandmates Neil Clark and Blair Cowan, who found themselves working together on an album with Lloyd for the first time since 1987’s Mainstream. However, anyone expecting a Commotions sound is in for a surprise: Guesswork is predominantly an ‘electronic’ album, built around classic and modern keyboards, modular and drum synthesizers; though guitars, played by both Lloyd and Neil, do feature. Lloyd’s ear for a melody, his lyrical smarts and his unmistakable voice ensure these songs stand shoulder to shoulder with anything he has previously written.

19 July brings some more summer sizzlers your way! The Flaming Lips, one of the most innovative – or weird, take your pick! – outfits out there, once again tread uncharted territory on King’s Mouth: Music And Songs, threaded together by cinematic narration courtesy of The Clash’s Mick Jones. Freya Ridings, possessing one of the most powerful voices of her generation, explores themes of doubt, pain, regret and vulnerability on her self-titled debut album. Her songs have an alchemical incandescence, and her extraordinary voice elevates them into greatness. To mark the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing in July 1969, Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois & Roger Eno’s seminal ambient masterpiece Apollo – Atmospheres & Soundtracks is being reissued, lovingly remastered and accompanied by a whole disc of new music by the trio. Order In Decline is the seventh studio album by Canadian pop-punk band Sum 41, a follow-up to 2016’s 13 Voices that sees the return of guitarist Dave Baksh, who left the band in 2006.

Our album of the week is Thom Yorke’s third solo album, Anima, the first of his solo works to feel truly complete without his band behind him. It floats through the uneasy space between societal turmoil and internal monologue. If glitchy dark electronica is your thing, you will love this.
