Latest new releases

27 September is another cracking week for new releases, and it was tough to distill them down to six – still, here we go! Michaela Anne has long been lauded for her timeless voice and narrative depth, and Desert Dove takes that to the next level: it’s confessional and unforgettable without being saccharine or self-indulgent, and showcases her stellar voice and distinct vision. There’s a deep climatic unease running through In The Morse Code of Brake Lights that’s matched only by the sheer musical glee with which The New Pornographers address the prevailing mood of the moment – this is an album in which foreboding and bliss somehow go hand in hand. New Frontier is the excellent new jazz-fusion album by The Steve Howe Trio that showcases the instrumental talents of Steve, drummer Dylan Howe and organist Ross Stanley, and features three compositions co-written with Steve’s former Yes band-mate Bill Bruford. Sturgill Simpson’s fourth album, Sound & Fury, comes with a promise! This “sleazy, steamy rock’n’roll record” is a marked departure from 2016’s acclaimed, Grammy-winning A Sailor’s Guide To Earth. Southern rockers Whiskey Myers stretch their collective wings like never before on their eponymous new album, which could just be the finest, most focused statement from to date, full of soulful story-telling packed with real dynamics and blistering guitar firepower.

Our album of the week comes from Beth Hart, who is as real as it gets. Rather than airbrushing her image and concealing her blemishes, she throws down her cards. On War In My Mind, this Grammy-nominated talent is at her most raw on a record that embraces her merits and flaws, channels her bittersweet head-space and spins gold from her demons.

First up for 20 September’s not-so-secret six is Why Me? Why Not, a clear upgrade on As You Were but not a radical departure from it, to the relief of Liam Gallagher’s loyal fans. Liam says “The most radical thing I can do is do it better every time. Some other bands and singers want to try it! It’s harder than doing a new South American opera disco song, that’s for sure.” Nice dig at his bro there! Samantha Fish, whose prodigious gifts as a genre-bending songwriter and electrifying guitarist have inspired tremendous critical acclaim and earned her an abundance of awards, is poised for a major breakthrough with her edgy roots-music album Kill Or Be Kind. While Keane singer Tom Chaplin found solo success, Tim Rice-Oxley’s life fell apart. From the ashes, Tim wrote an album’s worth of personal songs, which the other band members were drawn to immediately. Cause And Effect, the band’s first album in seven years, is the result. Morning In America consists of 7 songs recorded during the sessions for Mudhoney’s 2018 album, Digital Garbage, including alternate versions of stand-out tracks and several outtakes. Nine is the confusingly named eighth studio album from pop-punkers Blink-182, and is replete with the usual guitar hooks and singalong choruses. The band remain as vital and relevant as they ever were.

Our release of the week is Jaime, the stunning solo debut from Brittany Howard, frontwoman and guitarist in Alabama Shakes and one of music’s most celebrated figures, who has boldly decided to explore new directions, with diverse instrumentation and arrangements and intimate, revelatory lyrics.
