The quality new releases just keep rolling in! First up for 23 September is Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea, another fine album of ethereal folk from singer-songwriter Michael Rosenburg, better known as Passenger. Live At The Greek is the latest in a lengthy list of live albums from surely the hardest-working man in showbiz, Joe Bonamassa – one for all lovers of incendiary blues guitar. Marillion’s eighteenth studio album, F.E.A.R., is a fine addition to their rich canon of epically listenable prog. Billy Bragg & Joe Henry breathed new life into some of Americana’s finest songs during their journey across the American railroad, collected on Shine A Light – see Billy’s work with Wilco for more like this. American indie darlings Warpaint return from their various solo projects with their third album, Heads Up, and a fine and feisty effort it is too. Devendra Banhart continues on his own idiosyncratic way on An Ape On Pink Marble, which manages somehow to be familiar, different and interesting all at the same time. Boxed In release their follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed debut: think LCD Soundsystem crossed with Hot Chip.
Release of the week is Bruce Springsteen’s Chapter And Verse, a companion album to his autobiography, published the following week, and includes five previously unreleased songs by The Boss. Essential.
