The Coral
The Coral

When Liverpudlians the Coral first burst onto the scene we were promised something like a cross between the La's and Captain Beefheart. The reality was somewhat more prosaic but their psychedelic take on the guitar pop of the era was more colourful and explorative than their peers. Their self-titled debut was a sea-faring classic gaining them a Mercury Music Prize nomination and a large following that has stuck by them to this day.

Bill Ryder-Jones
Yawny Yawn

Bill Ryder-Jones’ 2018 LP Yawn was a fine set of epic ballads in that sort of Richard Hawley/Bill Callahan/Elbow tradition. On Yawny Yawn we find the former member of The Coral stripping back the tunes of Yawn to the bare essentials - just piano, voice and a few wisps of ambient electronics. This tender treatment allows the stark beauty of Ryder-Jones’ music to come into even sharper focus.

Bill Ryder-Jones
Yawn

Former The Coral bloke Bill Ryder-Jones drops his latest solo effort via Domino. Yawn is another record of furrowed-brow indie-rock from a man who always has a lot on his mind. The often-lengthy runtimes - most of the ten tracks here are over five-minutes - give Ryder-Jones the space for slow builds and thoughtful meditations on life. Musically the LP is frequently reminiscent of Elbow, Idlewild and Frightened Rabbit.

The Coral
Move Through The Dawn

(8) Theeeeere sheeeee gooooooes, theeeere shee … Oh sorry, I always get The La’s and The Coral mixed up. It’s the latter who we’re concerning ourselves with here. The modern Merseybeaters are back with Move Through The Dawn, their ninth LP and second for Ignition Records (Primal Scream, The Courteeners). It features more of their signature jangle-pop fare, now with an added dash of psych-rock flare. Hey, that rhymes. Come to think of it, it might be one of their lyrics.

Lee Southall
Iron In The Fire

Lee Southall is the guitarist out of The Coral, recently relocated to the inner depths of the Calder Valley. This new locale has inspired him to move away from Coralled psychedelic indie and towards a kind of UK / US rural folk sound, complete with pedal steel. Iron In The Fire is a strong solo statement, released by the Wonderfulsound label.

The Coral
The Curse Of Love

The Coral are... back!? That's far out. It's been four years since their last record, the neo-psych tinged 'Butterfly House', but 'The Curse Of Love' sees the band in a confident and strikingly ominous mood, making sharp and macabre tunes with marching drums, resounding strings and James Skelly's vocal, which sounds disembodied from his person. Widows and death and loneliness... it's, uh, the Coral?

The Coral
Distance Inbetween

Distance Inbetween marks the return of psychedelic indie-rock band The Coral. Six years have passed since 2010’s Butterfly house, which was the first album without guitarist Bill Ryder-Jones. The band are still helmed by James Skelly but now welcome ex-Zutons guitarist Paul Malloy, who also played with drummer Ian Skelly in Serpent Power, into the fold. The album was influenced by the books of Richard Yates, the graphic novels of Alan Moore, classic toys from the 1980s, Krautrock and Muddy Waters.

The Coral
Magic & Medicine

It’s not the one with ‘Dreaming Of You’ on - it’s not even the one with ‘In The Morning’ on - but The Coral’s ‘Magic & Medicine’ is actually their most successful album in the UK, to date their only number one and also containing their only top-five single ('Pass It On'). This 2003 LP is as fine a representation of the Merseyside band’s skiffling psych-beat as anything else in their catalogue, and the songcraft is strong enough that it still holds its own all these years on.
