Latest new releases

The new release juggernaut rolls on relentlessly, and we’ve got 8 mighty fine albums released on 5 May to recommend to you.

From A Room: Volume 1 is Chris Stapleton’s follow-up to the hugely successful Traveller, produced by the fast-becoming-legendary Dave Cobb; if you like modern country, start here! Kasabian have stuffed For Crying Out Loud full of hugely memorable tunes. Pollinator is Blondie’s 11th studio album and is truly befitting of the legendary New York band. Big Bad Luv comes direct from the heart of John Moreland, a songwriter good enough to support Jason Isbell on tour – if you like Jason you will luv John! At The Drive In return after an epic pause of 15 years return with in•ter a•li•a, an album that shivers with intensity. The Afghan Whigs cast a spell on In Spades, which challenges the listener to decode its spectral imagery and dark metaphors. In The Woods is both follow-up and companion piece to Hawkwind’s concept album from last year, The Machine Stops.

Release of the week is Slowdive’s new self-titled album, which manages to nod to their past magnificence without slavishly replicating it. It’s more direct but still beautifully beguiling.

The new release schedule starts to pick up again after Record Store Day, and there are some beauties due for release on 28 April.

Gorillaz return with their fifth album, their first since 2011; Humanz explores deep house, hip-hop, funk and soul. Mark Lanegan’s new album Gargoyle features his 50-fathom-deep voice and was created in collaboration with UK musician Rob Marshall. John Mellencamp started off with the idea of writing an album of old-time religious country songs, and as the man says himself, ended up with lots of sad songs, hence Sad Clowns & Hillbillies. Guitarist Bo Madsen left Mew in 2015, but their latest, Visuals, firmly rebuts anyone’s fear of the group tailing off following his departure; it’s full of their trademark prog-pop and marks a triumphant return. Old Crow Medicine Show bring their unique take to a Dylan classic: recorded live in Nashville in 2016, 50 Years Of Blonde On Blonde is both a surprise and delight. Rock n Roll Consciousness is new and exhilarating departure for sonic adventurer Thurston Moore: serious, precocious and strangely accessible. Strength Of A Woman highlights Mary J Blige’s trademark literate R&B sound and shows her fierce, powerful yet soulful vocals remain undiminished.

Our album of the week is a real treat: Pleasure sees PJ Harvey channelled through a very Feist prism, and this results in a fine album that we reckon will sit in our 2017 Top Twenty come the end of the year.
