Latest new releases

The first of 28 February’s selections comes from a legend of pop music. It takes an extraordinary artist to re-imagine some of the most beloved songs of the 20th century and make them completely their own, as James Taylor has done with the mesmerising stripped-down guitar arrangements on American Standard. Robert Cray continues to bridge the lines between blues, soul and R&B on That’s What I Heard, recorded at the iconic Capitol Records studios and featuring guests including Ray Parker Jr and Steve Perry. Caribou (Dan Snaith) returns with Suddenly, an album about changing relationships and the most surprising and unpredictable Caribou album to date, though it retains his trademark warmth and technicolour. Color Theory is an uncompromisingly honest self-portrait of mental-health and familial trials that have plagued the 22-year-old Sophie Allison aka Soccer Mommy, capturing the fleeting moments of bliss that make an embattled existence temporarily beautiful. The Main Thing delivers Real Estate’s most inspired and self-aware set of songs to date: full of depth, strangeness, contradictions and lifting hooks, balancing existential, environmental, and political anxieties with fatherly sentiments, self-satirising lyrics, forever-lively guitar lines, and shimmering strings.

Our album of the week is Saturn Returns by The Secret Sisters. Where do you find your resilience in the face of the loss of loved ones and the fragility of time? This album is a reflection of them coming to terms with how to find their power in the face of an unfair world.

We have six lovely little rascals due out on 21 February for you. Notes On A Conditional Form finds The 1975 tacking the climate crisis, with a Greta Thunberg call-to-arms album opener and a commitment to use as little plastic as possible, meaning the albums will not be shrink-wrapped. But fear not – plenty of attention has gone into the music! Greg Dulli, frontman of the legendary Afghan Whigs, was inspired by “the models of one-man-band visionaries: Prince and Todd Rundgren” to play most instruments on his debut solo album, Random Desire, producing something that’s 3 parts Greg Dulli, 1 part Afghan Whigs and all parts lovely. From This Place is a record that Pat Metheny has been “waiting to make my whole life. It is a kind of musical culmination, reflecting a wide range of expressions that have interested me over the years.” If you like jazz, this is one for you. Free, tough, uncompromising and supremely obdurate, the English North is the true heart of England, and legendary Saxon frontman Biff Byford is its true heavy-metal bard. With School Of Hard Knocks, he takes on tales and stories from his heart and soil, along with Medieval history, in his first ever solo album. Oh, and it’s available for Southerners too! After two feverishly received albums, the extraordinarily gifted 25-year-old Londoner King Krule adds further depth and substance with Man Alive!, packed full of his trademark sonic ambition and compositional skill, as well as the now-familiar corrosive lyricism and lurid social observation.

Our album of the week is Myopia, the fourth studio release from Agnes Obel, one of the most independent and original artists in contemporary music. Obel completed this album as a one-woman project in her Berlin home studio, placing herself in creative isolation with the removal of all outside influences and distraction. This has resulted in an album with an extraordinary album with a singular vision, and is highly recommended!
