Latest new releases
Or recommendations for 30 March kick of with the deep baritone and gothic Americana of Micah P. Hinson, and Live At The BBC is exactly what it says on the tin. Mary Chapin Carpenter’s new album, Sometimes Just The Sky, is effectively a celebration of her acclaimed 30-year recording career and all the better for it. Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite follow their Grammy-nominated Get Up! with No Mercy In This Land, another beguiling mix of acoustic/electric blues, roots and R&B. The Vaccines’ 4th album, Combat Sports, shines a glorious sunshine whilst bathing every ear in an FM warmth and is chock-full of an infectious enthusiasm. Trembling Bells’ 7th album, Dungeness, was inspired by a visit to that stretch of coastline, and the songs feel like the end of the earth with a sweeping, apocalyptic grandness – both in sound and lyrics – while harking back to the ’70s psychedelic heyday of Fairport Convention and Trees.
Our album of the week is Golden Hour, on which Kacey Musgraves continues to explore the acceptable end of country music, with smart, pointed lyrics allied to sharp, modern arrangements. Lovely!

23 March’s garden of earthly delights opens with Boarding House Reach, an overflowing artistic statement that burns with the passion and fury as any of Jack White’s earlier releases. This star-studded album swirls with perplexing ideas and musical genres. New York trio Sunflower Bean’s second album, Twentytwo In Blue, shows the band staying true to their guitar-band core and classic rock-inspired roots while exploring new sonic textures with more direct and progressive themes. Over And Out is a testament to his talent, his winning way with words, an incredible joie de vivre and a spirit that never flagged. He’ll be missed, but Over And Out is a great way to remember him. Staying At Tamara’s is a finger-snapping, brass-blaring, wind-in-the-hair collection of “songs about escapism, dreaming, anxieties and love” that George Ezra wrote while staying in various rural locations and in a Barcelona apartment owned by the Tamara of the album’s title. Martin Freeman’s jazz radio show has had an enormous impact, and Jazz On The Corner collects his favourite jazz in an incredible journey from rolling hard bop, via screaming soul organ, jazz-funk and original acid jazz, onwards to the postmodern spiritual jazz of Kamasi Washington.
Our album of the week is May Your Kindness Remain by Courtney Marie Andrews, whose music has been compared to John Prine, Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, Laura Marling and Julie Byrne. Her breakthrough album, Honest Life, became one of the hottest releases of 2017.
