This week's releases! 03/07
Coming Friday, July 3rd:
"On Sunset is a soul album. At the same time it’s also an electronic album, an orchestral album, an album packed with masterly pop songs and heart-tugging ballads, and an album filled with touches of experimentalism. It’s also an album that sees Weller taking a rare glance into the rear-view mirror as he speeds into the 2020s."
Keleketla! - Keleketla!
Limited to 300 copies, this double LP is pressed on recycled vinyl and comprises collaborations between Ninja Tune cofounders Coldcut and a cadre of South African musicians including Yugen Blakrok and Tony Allen.
Limited edition (only 70 copies!) bundle of one LP, two 7" singles and one CD single. All the recordings made for the short-lived label Fred Records.
A.A. Williams - Forever Blue
After her self-titled EP and a collaboration with Mono, Forever Blue is Williams' acclaimed debut album, "a rapturous blend of post-rock and post-classical, smouldering with uncoiling melodies and haunted atmospheres."
Ray LaMontagne - Monovision
The 8th studio album from Grammy Award winning artist Ray LaMontagne, all written, performed and produced by the man himself.
Pioneering pop perennials Sparks return with their follow up to 2017's universally acclaimed album Hippopotamus. Double splattered picture disc (it looks really cool) and the first few copies come with exclusive postcards.
The band's second album, reissued on double clear vinyl alongside remastered tracked from the oft-bootlegged live show from Chicago in 1991, known as Isolation 21.2.91, a holy grail amongst fans.
Prince Fatty puts his own stamp on Kraftwerk's 1978 electro masterclass The Model, with vocalist Shniece McMenamin and Drummer / MC Horseman. Includes a killer dub remix.
A few recent releases you may be interested in...
The debut album from Coriky, featuring Ian MacKaye, his Fugazi bandmate Joe Lally, and his Evens bandmate Amy Farina, all sharing singing responsibilities. Closer to The Evens than any of his other projects, but with a bit more of that Fugazi-esque grit in the mix.
A Britpop cult classic, reissued for the first time on heavyweight blue vinyl.
King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard -
and Murder of the Universe
