New releases are starting to slow as summer arrives, but there are still some goodies out on 24 June.
The prolific Felice Brothers return with Life In The Dark, in which they continue to mine their particular brand of folk/country/rock/soul to great effect. DJ Shadow’s first since 2011 marks a definite shift to original composition, which along with a stellar list of guests delivers a richly satisfying sonic treat. Ólafur Arnalds, who straddles the intersection of modern electronic music and classical, directs the new Late Night Tales – well worth a listen. Alt-J Live At Red Rocks accurately captures a an exciting and rapturously received live performance at the iconic American venue. Ace Records release the second instalment of Dan Penn’s FAME Recording Studios series, called Close To Me – a must-have if you love the Muscle Shoals sound.
Release of the week is Neil Young’s Earth, a live recording with a real difference. It features new takes on some of Neil’s legendary back catalogue, including a near 30-minute version of ‘Love & Only Love’ that’s worth the admission price alone.
