Our recommended releases for 24 February certainly bring the noise!
The wonderfully named King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard release what they claim will be the first of five albums during 2017, blimey! Flying Microtonal Banana is a subtle shift from last year’s Nonagon Infinity. Sleeping Through The War is the boldest album to date from All Them Witches, and designed specifically to be played loud! Brian Jonestown Massacre manage to make King Gizzard look like slackers by releasing their second album in 3 months, Don’t Get Lost, which is more of the shoegaze psychedelia for which they are rightly famed. Sick Scenes by Los Campesinos is a marvellous album full of the joy of just being in a band. Alt.country stalwarts Old 97’s have produced a fine record which is a worthy successor to their most popular album, 2014’s Most Messed Up. The first album in 4 years from Dirty Projectors, creatively called, well, Dirty Projectors, is a lovely blend of immediacy, lush production and thoughtful lyrics. The Mute Gods’s latest release, Tardigrades Will Inherit The Earth, certainly brings the prog power; we’ve no idea what it all means, but it sounds great!
Album of the week is Freedom Highway, the follow-up to Rhiannon Giddens’s debut solo release, Tomorrow Is My Turn. This new album is much more raw, far more personal and a delight to the ears.
