The Beatles
Let It Be

The Beatles last hurrah was the long gestating 'Let It Be' album. Actually conceived as a project before the recording of their penultimate album Abbey Road, various inter band squabbles and the temporary departure of George Harrison meant that it wasn't finished by 1970 at which point Phil Spector had been drafted in to slather strings all over it. Not particularly valued on release, it has gained traction over the years most likely when listeners realised the sort of music the four members would make solo.

Talk Talk
The Colour Of Spring

The Colour of Spring was the transition album between the old Talk Talk (sort of like a literate Duran Duran) and the new Talk Talk (jazz inflected post rock innovators). The Colour of Spring had elements of both containing chart-ready hits ('Life Is What You Make It', 'Living In Another World') but being much more organic in nature and innovative than their synth driven early work. Absolutely essential.

The Beatles
Revolver

Revolver by The Beatles is regarded by many as their best album. It’s the second album they made after giving up playing live and the use of studio trickery really began to enhance their concise pop. Originally released in 1966, it’s fair to say that this changed the shape of everything that came after it and is still doing so. Remastered 180g audiophile vinyl on Parlophone.

SG Lewis
times

Sam Lewis (SG Lewis, natch) has already collaborated with a veritable "who's who" from the world of modern pop - Robyn and Dua Lipa to name but two - but now it is time for the debut album. Favours are returned on the guest-front on 'times', an album that is inspired by the hedonistic disco scene of late-1970s New York as well as (more worryingly) the work of Jamiroquai. 

Blur
The Great Escape

PARKLOIF! Blur's 'The Great Escape' is, to me, Blur's most stereotypically Blur-sounding record. OIII! It's like Kinks-lite, with catchy choruses and ska-flavoured arrangements. There are noticaeable nods to Blur's later (and better) experimental work on 'The Universal' and 'Ernold Same'. It's a patchy record, one that could do with shedding a bit of fat, but with some stand-out moments all the same such as Graham Coxon's brilliantly boneless riff on 'He Thought of Cars', the sheer bombast of 'Country House' and 'Charmless Man', and the strange surreality of 'The Universal'. OIII!

Blur
Modern Life Is Rubbish

Modern Life Is Rubbish announced Blur as a serious proposition. They carved out an identity, both musically and image-wise for themselves that moved away from the indie-by-numbers of their debut album, Leisure. It earned them comparisons of great Englishness previously characterised by The Kinks and Small Faces, thus kicking off the whole Britpop thing. Features the singles For Tomorrow and Chemical World.

Giant Rooks
Rookery

Giant Rooks are a German art-rock band whose debut Rookery showcases a melodic take on the genre that suggests they've been listening to Tame Impala, Alt J and Bon Iver and then have tried to swirl the results into a big blender. Sweet alternative rock with an R&B and hip-hop flavour that could do pretty well for itself given the correct exposure.

Taylor Swift
folklore

Recorded under lockdown as a relatively quick follow-up to her last album Lover 11 months ago, Taylor Swift’s folklore dropped without fanfare at the end of July. Featuring production assistance from Jack Antonoff and The National’s Aaron Dessner, it’s been hailed as the most lyrically vivid and sonically diverse album of Swift’s career, and it now gets a physical release on CD and vinyl.

The Killers
Imploding The Mirage

Imploding The Mirage is the seventh album by The Killers. It’s their first since 2017’s Wonderful, Wonderful and, of course, since their triumphant Glastonbury headline set. The lead single from the album is called Caution, it features a guest appearance from the legendary Lindsay Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac.

Sigur Rós
Takk

'Takk' was the fourth LP by lauded Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Ros and the one that became their biggest-selling album, something helped no doubt by a lot of songs being used in adverts and nature series (most notably BBC’s 'Planet Earth'). The record now comes repressed onto double-vinyl plus etched 10" housed in a die-cut sleeve on Krunk. Sounds like, oh you know, ethereal and stirring and all things nice.

The Beatles
Yellow Submarine

By 1969 the Beatles could do what the hell they liked and if they wanted to release an animated film then no-one was stopping them. Taken on its own terms Yellow Submarine was an odd release. It contains four new songs, two already released songs and a whole side of it was devoted to George Martin's orchestral score to the film. A mixed bag then but an essential document for completists.

The Beatles
Please Please Me

You know what, no. We won’t. We won’t please you, Beatles - no, we won’t. You’ve been asking for too long now boys, and sometimes you have to learn that you’re not going to get your own way all the time. Sorry John, Paul, George and Ringo, but we’re putting our foot down. Go off and please yourselves.

The Beatles
Help!

Welp, this is by The Beatles, so not much need for us to tell you what’s going on here (obviously). Help! is the one with, among other things, ‘You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away’ and ‘Help!’ (obviously) on it, and is the soundtrack to their 1965 film Help! (obviously). The songwriting is good (obviously), this new edition has been remastered (obviously) and Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr were the best band ever (obviously).

Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music For Airports

Groundbreaking stuff here from Brian Eno. 'Ambient 1: Music For Airports' was released in 1978 and marks the first time the word "ambient" was used in connection with this kind of music. Eno made the album by layering tape loops. His intention was to make a soundscape that would cut through anxieties and tension in an airport.
  • CD (ENOCDX6)

Brian Eno
Ambient 4: On Land

Brian Eno’s specifically-titled Ambient series of albums culminated in Ambient 4: On Land, a particularly dense and somewhat dark listen, miles away from the bright emptiness of Ambient 1. Jon Hassell, Daniel Lanois and Bill Laswell were involved in helping Eno achieve this (still) strange and evocative expanse. Virgin reissue.

Morrissey
Bona Drag

This 1990 compilation of Morrissey’s first run of singles and b-sides made for one of his best albums. Besides the hits (Sudehead, Everyday Is Like Sunday, November Spawned A Monster), he’d continued the Smiths tradition of hiding the odd gem on a b-side or the flip of a 12” (the self-deprecating Disappointed comes to mind). The expanded edition adds a few previously unreleased numbers, bringing the total to 20. Remastered 20th anniversary edition on CD or double LP.
