Elbow
Live at The Ritz - An Acoustic Performance

Just what we need in these times of crisis - the warm, avuncular sound of Guy Garvey's voice heading up his soft rock mainstays Elbow. Live At The Ritz is a collection of recordings from a selection of acoustic-based shows they did around the release of their last album Giants of All Sizes. It will either be a comforting, familiar blanket or send you racing for the latest Merzbow release but for fans it couldn't be better timed.

Mark Hollis
Mark Hollis

Following the sad passing of Mark Hollis earlier this year we all collectively turned back towards the impressive career arc of his band Talk Talk. Referenced less was his self-titled solo album released in 1998. It didn't help that the record was out of print at the time, but this re-issue is a chance to wallow again in the intimate grooves of a record that was initially intended to be released under the Talk Talk moniker. It is a gorgeous thing, full of woodwind, jazz-inflected drumming, pastoral guitar and Hollis's fascinating, mumbling verse. So quiet that you can hear the squeak of the musicians' chairs. Essential.

The Rolling Stones
Bridges to Babylon

The Rolling Stones have released a lot of records. A lot. In 1997 they unleashed Bridges to Babylon which is one of those records elderly artists release where they bring in the hip producers of the day. 1997 meant Don Was and the Dust Brothers were involved who helped expand the 'Stones sound from there barroom blues rock out towards sample-laden hip-hop. Cue Jagger with baseball cap on backwards.

The Rolling Stones
Voodoo Lounge

Voodoo Lounge was the first Rolling Stones album to be made without Bill Wyman who had left the previous year. The band continued on as a four piece drafting Don Was in on production duties. The producer tried to get them to go back to basics  - sometimes this was too basic for some listeners but the album was a relative success. It has now been re-issued on 2LP cut at half speed for that perfect sound recreation.

The Rolling Stones
Steel Wheels

Despite being very unfashionable in 1989, The Rolling Stones ploughed on regardless and made Steel Wheels. In fact, this album was a return to form, mainly because Mick and Keith were friends again and saw the band embark on a massive world tour. It was the last album to feature original bassist Bill Wyman. Includes Mixed Emotions, Almost Hear You Sigh and A Rock And A Hard Place.

The Rolling Stones
Dirty Work

Despite Mick Jagger and Keith Richards still not getting on too well, The Rolling Stones decided to make a second album where the tension in the studio would reach boiling point. Mick was fresh from his 1985 solo album, She’s The Boss and his collaboration with David Bowie, Dancing In The Street. Dirty Work, originally released in 1986, was the result. Commercially, they did pretty well with the single, a cover of Bob & Earl’s Harlem Shuffle.

Undercover

1983’s Undercover is the album where The Rolling Stones fell out over musical differences, Keith wanted a bluesier sound, whilst Mick wanted to piggyback the trend for new wave and reggae. It features the classic single Undercover of The Night which appeared on Now That’s What I Call Music Vol. II. Also includes She Was Hot and Too Much Blood.

Tattoo You

Tattoo You by The Rolling Stones was originally released in 1981. I think the consensus was that the Stones had gone off the boil by this point, but I beg to differ. It includes classic opening track Start Me Up and Waiting On A Friend which was a song originally written in the early ‘70s. Hang Fire and Tops are among the other highlights.

Emotional Rescue

1980’s Emotional Rescue saw The Rolling Stones mopping up some disco sounds which they first tried out on the 1978 single Miss You. The real winner of the bunch in the punchy, funky title track, which, if you’ve seen the 2015 film A Bigger Splash, gets Ralph Fiennes dancing like a...er...dad?

Nico
Chelsea Girl

This is the first Nico solo album and a long long way away from the inspired but terrifying avant churn of albums like Desertshore. Here she is in full on folk mode and with covers of songs by the likes of Lou Reed, Jackson Browne and Tim Hardin this is a lovely pastoral work of art that stands on it's own as her one moment of real conventional music making.

Billie Eilish
WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? [7-inch box set]

The precocious Billie Eilish drops her debut LP. WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? - no need to shout, Billie - is a family affair, with Eilish’s brother Finneas O’Connor co-producing the record. Music-wise the songs here lean into Lana Del Rey’s dark-Disney Americana while also incorporating EDM and Adele-ish balladry.

The Who
The Kids Are Alright

The Kids Are Alright by The Who was originally released in 1979 as the soundtrack to the film of the same name. It features performances of classic tracks by the band including My Generation for US TV show The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour from 1967. At the end of the song Keith Moon did what Keith Moon tends to do and blew up his drum kit, much to the chagrin of Pete Townsend and his ears. It also includes songs from Woodstock and rare live tracks.

Neo-pop chart-botherer Mura Masa drops his second LP ‘R.Y.C.’ - stands for ‘Raw Youth Collage’, which is definitely a thing you can say with a straight face. The first single for this LP is called ‘No Hope Generation’, a track in which Mura Masa sings about having no hope while smashing together Jamie T’s Poundland Billy Bragg thing with pop-punk and drum ‘n’ bass. Slowthai, Clairo and Georgia are among the guests. Fine.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Peepshow

Here's where Siouxsie and the Banshees proved that they were more than just goth rock gloomsters.

Carly Rae Jepsen
Dedicated

Emotion by Carly Rae Jepsen was, in this humble writer's opinion, one of the greatest albums ever made. And it would have been tough for anyone to match the giddy highs that album produced. On 2019's Dedicated, she more or less succeeds, creating an album just as suited to tidying your house, as it is to bouncing around with glee at a show.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
The Scream

The Scream was the debut album by Siouxsie and the Banshees. It's slower than punk textures and rhythms could be said to be the birth point of post- punk and their sound can be heard in innumerable bands that followed such as Joy Division and the Cure. Contains a preposterous version of Lennon and McCartney's 'Helter Skelter' amongst other classics but their hits would come later.

The Rolling Stones
Exile on Main Street

The Rolling Stones took themselves off to the French Riviera to record their classic double LP Exile On Main Street. This could well be the album from which all the stories of excess associated with rock stars stem from. But let’s not let that overshadow the music. Since it’s release in 1972, Exile On Main Street has been a bona fide rock ‘n’ roll classic.

The Police
Zenyatta Mondatta

As the third album from the much loved and quintessentially British The Police, 'Zentatta Mondatta', which brilliantly melds the styles of Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Juju

This is possibly Siouxie and the Banshees high water mark. This 1981 album featured the unique, distinctive guitar of John McGeoch which gave the Banshees an unconventional innovative sound. The album features the dashing single 'Spellbound' and has been cited as one of the most influential British albums.

Elbow
Build A Rocket Boys!

'Build A Rocket Boys!' is the extremely charmingly named sequel to Elbow's Mercury Prize winning album with that song everyone knows on it.

Miraculously, despite all the time he spends on the radio, Guy Garvey's can still belt 'em out with the best of 'em.

As one of the prime jewels in The Police's crown of blockbuster record, 'Ghost In The Machine' is the band's fourth and penultimate album.

Snow Patrol
Reworked

Snow Patrol Reworked features 16 of the band’s songs that they have reworked in some way. It’s not clear yet how they have been reworked, so could you could be hearing Run in an rib-cracking techno style, Chasing Cars in the style of Napalm Death, Chocolate à la Daniel O'Donnell. We’ll see, but my suggestions are likely to be wide of the mark to be honest.

The Police
Synchronicity

As the fifth and final album from British punk-tinged rockers The Police, 'Synchronicity' saw the Londoners bow out by blending light pop hooks with a dose of heavy, love-sick lyrical narratives. The release of course contains the slightly haunting, stalker-vibe pop of timeless classic 'Every Step You Take'.

White Lies
To Lose My Life (10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

We all remember when we were when White Lies released To Lose My Life don't we. Don't we?? Well September 2009 should be indelibly stamped on your brain as the month their debut was unleashed and incredibly went straight to the very top of the UK album chart. Well blow me down with a feather. It managed to score 58 on Metacritic and was described by the Guardian as "promising, if unremarkable" so it's high time we got a tenth anniversary re-issue which thrillingly contains demo and live tracks discovered in bassist Charles Cave's personal cupboard.  

Elbow
Giants of All Sizes

I like them tall giants, I like them small giants, I like them brown-haired giants, I like them blonde-haired giants… Unfortunately Giants Of All Sizes, the latest LP from stadium-bothering Mancunians Elbow, doesn’t actually include a cover of Calvin Harris’ ‘The Girls’. Shame, that. What the band’s eighth album does contain is more of that brooding, baroque rock music that Guy Garvey et al do so well. Think of them as Northern England’s answer to The National.

Kaiser Chiefs
Duck

Duck is the new album by Kaiser Chiefs. What I’m going to focus on here is the eleventh track, titled Kurt vs Frasier (The Battle For Seattle). What are we to take from this, as a song, from Kaiser Chiefs? Where do Nirvana or Dr Frasier Crane, or indeed Seattle, fit into the universe of Kaiser Chiefs? Why have they done this? I wish I knew. On Polydor.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
The Rapture

The Rapture was the 11th and final studio album from Siouxsie and the Banshees and was part produced by John Cale. The album continued the band's legacy of producing innovative and fresh work at a time when many of their contemporaries had either split up or were treading water. Though not sporting any notable singles the record continued the Banshees obsession with the darker side of pop with disquieting lyrics to match.

His protest anthem Say It Loud, I’m Black And I’m Proud had just been released, and to rightly hammer his point home, he performs it twice. Classic stuff! Double LP on Polydor.

James Brown
Slaughters Big Rip-Off (Original Soundtrack)

The amount of huge artists from the funk/soul continuum who’ve soundtracked blaxploitation movies is just crazy. Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes and Marvin Gaye are just three of the all-time greats that produced scores for films of the genre during its early-’70s heyday. Even the Godfather himself Mr. James Brown got in on the act, teaming up with on-off compositional partner Fred Wesley to produce a typically high-wire set of tunes for 1973 flick Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off. Out of print for a minute, Slaughter’s Big Rip-Off (OST) has now been reissued by Polydor.

James Brown
Motherlode

Motherlode by James Brown is a  compilation that was originally released in 1988. It was re-released in 2003 as an expanded edition. This is the first vinyl version of that expanded version - ya get me? It concentrates on The Godfather Of Soul’s funk output from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. For good measure there’s a few remixes and live performances thrown in too. Double 180g vinyl LP on Polydor.

James Blake
Assume Form

Have you heard? Music is a secret. Release announced on the week the CD comes out with the vinyl coming 'some time in the future', you have to remember that this is a James Blake record not some kind of secret government experiment. Anyway the crybaby songster (we say that simply because it pisses him off so much) has a new record out which you can listen to and buy (maybe).    

James Brown
Black Caesar (Original Soundtrack)

Black Caesar was the James Brown’s first stab at a film soundtrack. A 1973 blaxploitation gangster film and funk sound like a pretty cool match. The soundtrack also includes tracks by The J.B.’s and Lyn Collins. Songs from this soundtrack have been sampled by Ice-T, Nas and Trick Daddy. 180g vinyl reissue on Polydor.

The Velvet Underground
1969

This reissue of The Velvet Underground’s 1969 feels like walking into a living room full of old friends. All the favourites are there, drink in hand: “I’m Sticking with You”, “Rock and Roll” and “Andy’s Chest”, but they’ve changed a bit, as old friends do. There’s original mixes taken from the infamous tour of 1969 as well as rare instrumentals, alternate versions and mixes from 2014 never before pressed into vinyl.

Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

The final album from a band who evolved from synth-pop into intricate, unbelievably delicate avant-jazz compostion. This reissue comes 26 years after the original release but the music hasn't aged a bit. 'Ascension Day' churns and whirrs whilst 'New Grass' tugs the heart strings just as strongly as before. Absolutely essential.

The Cardigans
Long Gone Before Daylight

Long Gone Before Daylight was the fifth album by The Cardigans. This album marked a change in their sound as they introduced elements of alternative rock and country. Nina Persson teamed up with Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse to form A Camp after this album, possibly an influence on the band’s new sound. Features the single You're The Storm. 180g vinyl LP, in gatefold sleeve on Polydor.

The Struts
YOUNG&DANGEROUS

They don’t make ‘em like this any more, except they very much do. The Struts are the band for any of you out there who have been missing The Darkness these past few years. Young & Dangerous (or should that be YOUNG&DANGEROUS? Does it matter?) is the Derby group's sophomore LP, though to be honest you could tell us that this lot have been making music since 1973 and we would take it at face value. The fact that The Struts were picked as the support act for the last ever Mötley Crüe gig speaks volumes.

Snow Patrol
Final Straw

Snow Patrol’s 2003 album Final Straw was their third album, but their first real biggie. Having signed to a major label may have helped with production values and a marketing push, but they were solely responsible for writing some anthemic songs. Run, for example, went stratospheric and unfortunately became an X-Factor Staple. Also includes Spitting Games. Deluxe reissue LP on Polydor.

Snow Patrol
Eyes Open

Eyes Open was the fourth album by Snow Patrol, coming three years after its predecessor, Final Straw, in 2006. It shifted a lot of copies and was the biggest selling album of the year. The major label boost was really paying off. To make the album extra shiny, U2, Robbie Williams and The Killers producer Jacknife Lee was drafted in. Among the 60-odd musicians that played on the album, Martha Wainwright and The Vaselines Eugene Kelly are the standout names. Deluxe reissue LP on Polydor.

The 1975
A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

Extremely (and unfathomably to people over 40) popular group the 1975 return with the thankfully shorter titled follow up to the one with the extremely long title. Who knew that when Tim Healey and Denise Welch got together this would be the result but there we are. That last LP reached number one on both sides of the little puddle we call the Atlantic ocean and interest is at fever pitch for this one. 

The Cure
Acoustic Hits

Released for record store day 2017, here we have the second cd from The Cure’s greatest hit compilation released in 2001 getting it's own vinyl release for the first time. Acoustic versions of all the tracks that featured on the main compilation. Features versions of Lullaby, Friday I’m In Love, Boys Don’t Cry. Double vinyl on Polydor.

Anna and the Apocalypse (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

"Shaun of the Dead meets La La Land" is how they're describing this one. Throw in a bit of Christmas and it looks about right! Filmed in Scotland, the original score to Anna and the Apocalypse was composed by Glasgow duo, Roddy Hart and Tommy Reilly who have previously worked alongside Morrisey, Coldplay and Mogwai.      Expect a bombastic score of Christmas horror.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Join Hands

'Join Hands' was the second Siouxie and the Banshees album and found them still in a very bleak place with songs based around the First World War. It also features the band's harrowing version of the Lords Prayer. The hits started on the subsequent 'Kaleidoscope' but this one shows the band at their most darkly brutal.

13 Reasons Why - Season 2 (A Netflix Original Series Soundtrack)

The press release for this record leads with ‘New music from Gomez’, which isn’t a great start, but things pick up when you realise that they actually mean Selena Gomez. Obviously this is some of the music from the second season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why. There are new songs from (among others) YUNGBLUD and Lord Huron and, err, OneRepublic. Some golden oldies from New Order, Echo & The Bunnymen, Tears For Fears and other bands of that ilk also make the cut.

Siouxsie and The Banshees
Superstition

This is Siouxsie and the Banshees 10th album and was originally released in 1991. It was produced by Stephen Hague (New Order/Pet Shop Boys) which meant it had his usual array electronic textures and drum programs.  Though this didn't enamour the album to some fans it was still critically respected for it's tender and emotional songs.

Years & Years
Palo Santo

New record from popular young people band led by charismatic and enormo-browed singer Olly Alexander.. currently Harrogate's biggest export. The trio play a highly commercial brand of synth pop that appeals to the X Factor crowd but by way of catchy songs and Alexander's left wing, openly gay persona dig a little deeper than the usual download chart tat.

Snow Patrol
Wildness

Gary, Nathan, Paul, Johnny, and Jonny return at last with Wildness. Quite a few years in the making, not least as it was scrapped and begun again from scratch midway in, the album reliably packs enough crestfallen indie plodcore to soundtrack an entire season of Grey’s Anatomy. The discerning fan may pick from black vinyl, picture disc, basic CD or deluxe CD with hardback book.

Black Panther: The Album – Music from and Inspired By

Probably the cultural event of 2018 that will live longest in the memory, Marvel’s Black Panther really is an outstanding film. A lot of the songs here don’t appear prominently in the movie, but there’s been enough hype around this accompanying LP in its own right. You know the score at this point - Kendrick Lamar plays auteur, bringing together a load of A-listers for this head-scratching, trunk-rattling selection. If nothing else, you need this for Future’s absolutely, masterfully, hilariously ridiculous verse on ‘King’s Dead’.

Frank Turner
Be More Kind

Frank Turner is one man. A man who has a guitar. A man who has, damn it all, a voice. Together they are used to make music. Sometimes the music they make becomes very popular indeed. Maybe this latest LP will be another one of those popular ones. Maybe it will teach us the error of our ways. Maybe we will learn to love each other again. Maybe we will change. Maybe we will be better. Maybe we will Be More Kind.

Lord Huron
Vide Noir

I hope Lord Huron are okay. Their new album Vide Noir, meaning 'empty black', is an indie folk communion with the void. Assuming the seasons continue their endless deferral it might be the ideal album to listen to this supposed 'spring'. Haunting but warm, Lord Huron are the ideal companion to face the darkness.

Fickle Friends
You Are Someone Else

Let's face it, we are bunch of old men selling young people music that we neither like nor understand. Here's the latest lot to send us further spiralling out of business. Fickle Friends are a wildly commercial dance pop outfit that will appeal to fans of the 1975 and Chvrches. I'll occasionally hear stuff like this at my gym.

The Jam
In The City

In The City was the album with which The Jam announced themselves to the world. Paul Weller was just 19 at the time and used the album as a outlet for his teenage frustration. The title track was the only single to be released from the album. There were also two covers: the Larry Williams blues tune Slow Down and Theme from Batman. Reissue LP on Polydor.

The Jam
Sound Affects

Sound Affects is widely thought of by critics, and Paul Weller himself, as the best record by The Jam. Their fifth album, it was originally released towards the end of 1980. It turned out to be their penultimate release and featured the singles That’s Entertainment and the Taxman-aping Start! The latter was the band's second no.1 hit.

Kendrick Lamar
DAMN. (Collector's Edition)

Hailed by many as the greatest hip-hop album of 2017 by an artist Q magazine once called “The greatest rapper of his generation”. The Collector's Edition of Kendrick Lamar's 'DAMN.' switches up the tracklist, flipping it on its head, to be heard as the artist originally envisaged. There aren't any new tracks on this edition, just a different running order and alternate artwork. "Just remember, what happens on Earth stays on Earth / We gon' put it in reverse"
