New releases for 6 May 2016

6 May brings us Prince’s final album, Hit ’n’ Run Phase Two – full of life, and brassy, buoyant and as cheeky as only Prince seemed to be able to get away with! Blair Dunlop takes folk into new territory on Gilded, the follow-up to his much-lauded House Of Jacks, The Duke Spirit return with Kin, ten glorious songs about the important stuff, Jean-Michel Jarre’s Electronica 2: The Heart Of Noise boasts another stellar cast of collaborators, Mary Chapin Carpenter’s new release features eleven heartfelt and moving songs, a collection of the best of personal favourite Laura Cantrell’s BBC performances is a compelling listen, and Bloom Forever, the debut solo release from Tom Cohen, contains songs both beautiful and fragile. My album of the week is the fine Take Me to the Alley, Geoffrey Porter’s much more autobiographical follow up to the award-winning Liquid Spirit.
