5 February sees the return of the indefatigable Cult with their latest, Hidden City. Elton John provides us with his 33rd – yes that’s right, 33rd – studio album, Wonderful, Crazy, Night. James Hunter has conjured up a compelling slice of old-school R&B in Hold On, Field Music return with their fifth album, and their first in 4 years, Commontime, GoGo Penguin deliver their usual eclectic mix of electronica done acoustically, which makes no sense until you listen to it. Bert Jansch’s much loved Avocet gets a welcome reissue in CD and vinyl formats, and local singer-songwriter Foxes releases her second full-length, All I Need. My release of the week is the wonderfully named The I Don’t Cares, comprising Paul Westerberg of Replacements fame and Juliana Hatfield, with some pretty damn sharp song writing on Wild Stab.
