Latest new releases

The choicest new releases for 8 July begin with Found Light, which feels, in many ways, like Laura Veirs’ debut: a liberating collection of inquisitive and surprisingly assured snapshots of healing and personal growth following 2020’s My Echo, a testament to the inspiration of independence, to shaping new possibilities for yourself even after great loss. It’s almost unbelievable that Toast, the near-mythical 2001 studio album by Neil Young With Crazy Horse, is finally going to see the light of day! Whispered about in hushed tones by collectors, with Young dropping occasional nuggets of information about it here and there, the album finds Crazy Horse at a ragged and thundering apex and features three never-before-released songs. After providing an aural balm at just the right moment with her debut album, Katy J Pearson reflects a world brimming with curiosity, back in action and wanting to expand its horizons on her second album, Sound Of The Morning, on which she is pushing herself musically and lyrically into new waters. Sunset Dreams is a brand-new six-track EP featuring remixes of tracks from Jane Weaver’s acclaimed album Flock plus two unreleased tracks from the album sessions, beautifully capturing the pop vision of this ever-morphing electronic pioneer. BANKS enters previously uncharted territory in every sense – from sound to lyrics to visuals, and everything in-between, letting go and freeing herself by taking full production responsibilities on the 13-track Serpentina.

Our release of the week is When The Purple Emperor Spreads His Wings by The Wave Pictures, who have released over twenty albums of their own along with exciting side projects and collaborations. Across these varied releases, accommodating Dave Tattersall’s free-flowing fountain of songwriting, The Wave Pictures have shown their deep affection for rock and roll, blues, jazz, classic rock, and of course Dave’s legendary love of a good guitar solo.

The first of our pick of the pops for 1 July is A Very Lonely Solstice, the new album from Fleet Foxes, which captures a poignant moment in time – originally live-streamed on the winter solstice of 2020, during a long Covid lockdown – fans worldwide, quarantined at home, found solace and a sense of community in a period of extreme isolation. London supergroup-of-sorts Warmduscher take the unique, potent blend of raw musicianship, down ’n’ dirty rock riffs and devil-may-care party attitude shown on their critically acclaimed 2019 release Tainted Lunch and inject it with a slightly more polished ’80s funk sound on At The Hotspot, kind of like stumbling home to your loft squat after a drunken night at the local disco. Last Night In The Bittersweet, the fourth album from Paolo Nutini, is a 70-minute epic that spans the distance from classic rock to post-punk to hypnotic Krautrock, in the process proving its value as his deepest, most varied, most accomplished, and ultimately most rewarding set so far. While in lockdown Nick Cave wrote a number of small, sacred songs – one a day for a week – and these Seven Psalms are presented as one long meditation on faith, rage, love, grief, mercy, sex and praise: a veiled, contemplative offering borne of an uncertain time. 1977, the spectacular debut album from Ash, was a monument in the Brit-rock scene, reaching No.1 in the UK and since achieving platinum status, and includes the band smashing out the huge singles ‘Girl From Mars’, ‘Kung Fu’, ‘Goldfinger’, ‘Angel Interceptor’ and ‘Oh Yeah’.

Release of the week is Tresor (Treasure), the third full-length solo album from Gwenno Saunders and her second almost entirely in the Cornish language (Kernewek). Written in the Cornish town of St. Ives just prior to the lockdowns of 2020 and completed at home in Cardiff during the pandemic along with her co-producer and musical collaborator Rhys Edwards, Tresor reveals an introspective focus on home and self, a prescient work echoing the isolation and retreat that has been a central, global shared experience over the past two years.
