Latest new releases

Our summer sizzlers for 25 June start with Earth Trip from celebrated guitarist Ripley Johnson, who formed Rose City Band to explore his songwriting talents; the album charts a journey of personal growth and introspection with surprising honesty, and it’s a celebration of summer warmth and the great outdoors. M.C. Taylor of Hiss Golden Messenger went looking for peace, and Quietly Blowing It is a retrospective of the past five years of his life, going deep and painted in impressionistic hues. 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 penetrates you to the very heart, searing with its burning honesty, its unsparing intimacy and its twisted beauty. The reissue of PJ Harvey’s back catalogue continues with White Chalk, originally released in September 2007, and it’s been lovingly remastered and is accompanied by collection of unreleased demos from the album. Leviathan is a new collaborative album from electronic duo The Grid (aka Richard Norris & Dave Ball) and Robert Fripp, combining Fripp soundscapes with synth, drums, programming and effects by The Grid.

Our release of the week is Boy From Michigan, the most autobiographical and melodic work to date from John Grant. In a decade of making records by himself, Grant has playfully experimented with mood, texture and sound, all the better for actualizing the seriousness of his thoughts.

With labels focused on RSD, we’ve got a bijou selection of four releases for 18 June, plus an early peek at two from the enormous list due out on 25 June. First up is Consequences, one of Joan Armatrading’s most intimate and direct albums yet, and one that wears its heart – and its conscience – on its sleeve; it’s very different from 2018’s Not Too Far Away and ably illustrates the fact that she never likes to repeat herself. The double-CD/triple-LP expanded deluxe edition of Charles Mingus’ classic 1974 live album Mingus At Carnegie Hall includes over an hour of previously unreleased material sequenced in the order of the original performance, as well as never-before-seen photos and new liner notes. The two volumes of demos from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, recorded between 2011 and 2020, come to you in a lovely double pack! As front-man Stu Mackenzie says: “These recordings were never supposed to see the light of day. But here they are: loose as; sloppy as. Hopefully endearing.” On to releases for 25 June, we have Merci Miles! Live At Vienne, a previously unreleased set recorded just 3 months before Miles Davis’s death that includes two songs written by Prince: ‘Penetration’ and ‘Jailbait’. On 22 June 1971, Joni Mitchell released Blue, a masterpiece still regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time. To celebrate its 50th anniversary, The Reprise Albums (1968–1971), collects Joni’s first four albums, newly remastered versions and, in the case of Song To A Seagull, freshly mixed. “The original mix was atrocious,” says Mitchell, “so I fixed it!

Our release of the week is Carnage, a new album that Nick Cave & Warren Ellis recorded over a period of weeks during lockdown in an accelerated process of intense creativity that Cave describes as “a brutal but very beautiful record nested in a communal catastrophe.”. Although the pair have composed and recorded many soundtracks together, and Ellis is a long-term member of The Bad Seeds, this is the first time they have released an entire album of songs as a duo.
