Latest new releases
The new release juggernaut rolls on with some mighty fine albums for 24 March! Southampton’s very own Creeper release their debut album this week, called Eternity In Your Arms, a varied and ambitious effort which is perfectly executed and succeeds admirably. I’ve seen Devon Sproule’s music described as North American music with weirdo roots, which perfectly encapsulates what she does; new album The Gold String is no different and all the better for it. You Had Me At Goodbye is a worthy successor to Samantha Crain’s very fine 2015 Under Branch & Thorn & Tree – just great! The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn continues on We All Want The Same Things to explore the themes of love and partnership in the modern world through some finely etched character studies – recommended. Brand New Day finds eclectic unit The Mavericks as inspired as ever, creating a one-of-a-kind sound that blends elements of rock, latin, folk, blues and country into a unified whole. Steve Hackett’s latest is intended as a wake-up call, a Night Siren if you will, during times of strife and division, and Steve’s signature virtuoso playing is accompanied by musicians from several countries. The Soul of Jamaica is just that; it celebrates the original acoustic style of reggae music and Inna De Yard includes a stellar cast of collaborators who helped record the album in just 4 days!
Release of the week is The Jesus And Mary Chain’s first studio album since 1998’s Munki, the aptly named Damage And Joy, which features the two Reid brothers doing what they do best!

17 March brings some great new releases our way. First up is Gary Clark Jr, an incendiary guitarist who mixes blues and soul to great effect; Live In North America 2016 really showcases his extraordinary live show. Conor Oberst brings us Salutations, a full-band rework of last year’s astonishing Ruminations plus an extra 10 songs – and surprisingly, given how sparse and intimate the original songs were, rather than disappear under the weight of the the band treatment they really unfold and grow into very different compositions. Real Estate have long been respected for their deft lyrical hand and gorgeous melodies, and In Mind builds on the band’s reputation for creating perfect songs and carries Martin Courtney further into the pantheon of great songwriters. In Memories Of Another Future, Louisa Roach a.k.a. She Drew A Gun offers up chugged guitars and a laid-back percussive tempo thats glides effortlessly through blues-tinged and soulful offerings, lovely! Veteran indie greats Spoon return with their ninth album, Hot Thoughts, a beguiling mix of dad rock, disco, funk and indie, and a solid and most importantly groovy return for Spoon.
Release of the week is Depeche Mode’s follow-up to 2014’s monster Delta Machine; the new album, Spirit, is full of great energy and some fabulous hooks.
