New releases for 30 October 2015

30 October is a huge day for new releases and could easily have included Enter Shikari, Martin Courtney, Son Volt, Maverick Sabre, Alison Moorer and more. The 8 stand-out releases are: Guy Garvey’s solo album, which confounds the stereotypes of lead-singer solo albums either being the same as the band or frankly bonkers; Matt Behringer’s (The National) El VY project, a worthwhile addition to an increasingly impressive catalogue; Otis Redding’s 12-CD Soul Manifesto, a treasure trove of one of soul’s great artists; The Jam’s Fire & Skill box set, comprising a live concert from each year of their existence; the two Van Morrison re-issues, including some unreleased gems; Roots Manuva’s frankly astonishing new album, Bleeds – expect multiple appearances on the year end best-of lists. James Morrison makes a welcome return after 4 years with Higher Than Here, but album of the week is 1989 from Ryan Adams; enough words on this one, just do your ears a favour and buy it!
