Andrew Bird
Hark!

‘Hark!’ sees US multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird embracing the Christmas spirit with an album of festive songs. The varied LP brings together seasonal originals and covers including John Cale’s ‘Andalucia’ and ‘Souvenirs’ by John Prine. It also includes his childhood favourite ‘Mille Cherubini in Coro’, a tune famously belted out by Luciano Pavarotti once.

Local Natives / Sylvan Esso
Dark Days

The original version of Dark Days appeared on the 2016 album Sunlit Youth by Los Angeles indie rockers Local Natives. The new version of the song features the vocals of Amelia Meath, one half of North Carolinian electronic pop duo Sylvan Esso who also wrote a new additional verse for the song. 7" on Loma Vista.
  • Vinyl 7" (LVR1266)

Local Natives
Sour Lemon EP

US indie-rockers Local Natives' EP ‘Sour Lemon’ is a collection of tunes that came together very organically. The band worked on these songs without the pressure of expectation recording an album can bring, and as such 'Sour Lemon' is a little more understated than their usual bombastic fare - more Fleet Foxes than Arcade Fire. Features a guest performance from Sharon Van Etten on the opening track 'Lemon'.

Denzel Curry x Kenny Beats
Unlocked

One of the most acclaimed rappers of his generation, a reputation established by his work over the last 18 months, Denzel Curry begins the ‘20s with a brand new full-length titled Unlocked, produced by Kenny Beats and laid down in a manically intense three-day recording period following Curry’s appearance on the producer’s YouTube show ‘The Cave’.

Rhye
Home

Rhye is the project of Canadian songwriter Michael Milosh who, after years of being a wandering minstrel, has now settled into a creative domesticity in Topanga. Nice. His new album 'Home' continues his exquisite form of home-made music, full of piano and orchestral touches all topped off by his eerily genderless vocals. To add some shine to it, this was mixed by Alan Moulder (U2, the Killers etc).

Action Bronson
Only For Dolphins

American rapper, writer and general jack-of-all-trades Action Bronson drops a surprise new full-length album in the shape of Only For Dolphins. Sticking to the same collaborators he’s worked with for many years, The Alchemist, Budgie and DJ Muggs, Action generates inventive soundscapes and couples them with vivid wordplay and imagery.

Sylvan Esso
Free Love

Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn present their third studio album as Sylvan Esso. Originating in Los Angeles with collaborator Jon Hill and completed at their home studio in North Carolina, Free Love manages to be their most accessible and complex work yet, examining issues from self-worth to the environment with an upbeat disposition.

Margo Price
That's How Rumors Get Started

The third studio album from crossover star Margo Price, That’s How Rumours Get Started is perhaps the first to properly translate her live show to record. It uses country music as a jumping off point to explore a myriad of other genres, including travelogue songs, rock ballads tinged with psychedelia, and no small amount of pop nous. 
  • CD (LVR1057)

Soccer Mommy
color theory

Color Theory by Soccer Mommy (AKA Sophie Allison) is the follow up to 2018’s rather marvellous Clean. Here she lays herself bare to listeners through unflinchingly honest lyrics that detail her struggles with mental health and her family. It seems that writing about these issues has been a cathartic process for the resilient 22 year-old.
  • CD (LVR855)

Robert Glasper
Fuck Yo Feelings

Fuck Yo Feelings is the latest studio project from the prestigious Robert Glasper, multiple Grammy-winning pianist and record producer. The result of a two day-session in which Glasper’s musician friends contributed in spontaneous improvisation, it has a refreshingly unplanned ‘mixtape’ feel.

Common
Let Love

You heard the man - Let Love! Common proves a voice of reason yet again on his twelfth studio LP, picking through the debris of modern life with care and compassion. Tracks like the Daniel Caesar-featuring ‘Her Love’ are tender, eloquent neo-soul-rap flexes (it also helps that the ‘Her Love’ beat is an unreleased J Dilla joint). Common’s consciousness can be gritty too - try the slamming Swizz Beatz-assisted flex ‘Hercules’.

St. Vincent
Masseduction

Masseduction is the new album from St. Vincent, aka Annie Clark. It is her 6th, if you count the one she did with David Byrne. As the title may suggest, themes of sex, power, vulnerable relationships and death weave throughout the lyrics, which are autobiographical, according to Clark. Musically, Clark’s inventive guitar, synth and electronics create a punchy sonic backdrop.

Andrew Bird
My Finest Work Yet

Andrew Bird’s modestly-entitled My Finest Work Yet is also the album with which he celebrates hitting a dozen studio LPs. This is, of course, another collection of bespoke Baroque/folk/leftfield pop from the artist you put on when you haven’t got a Sufjan Stevens record to hand. My Finest Work Yet features, among other things, a biography written by Dave Eggers.
  • CD (7208206)

St. Vincent
MassEducation

St. Vincent's new record is new in the quixotic way that 'new records' quickly following the last record are. In fact MassEducation is a reimagined version of Annie Clark's recent LP of blistering and Bowie-adoring pop music. Here the songs are rendered sparser and take on an entirely new way of living. I'm sure it's worth hearing.
  • CD (LVR447)

Denzel Curry
TA13OO

The press release for Denzel Curry’s long-awaited third LP TA1300 (pronounced ‘Taboo’, though you could probably get away with calling it ‘Tattoo’) is written in all-caps. It’s fitting considering that, once this record is on, you won’t be able to concentrate on anything else. Curry marries the hyped-up nu-skool styles of Rae Sremmurd, A$AP Ferg et al with an ability to a c t u a l l y s p i t b a r s that places him in the noble southern tradition of Outkast and Killer Mike. The beats are gnarled things that bear a clear Horrorcore influence, and Curry also makes sure everyone knows that he likes Marilyn Manson.

Rhye
Blood

Rhye, the mysterious band that turned out to be two men, and is now just one man called Michael Milosh, are back with another album of softly spoken R&B and cool, stark production. They've also kept their whole 'high quality photos of anonymous naked women' thing for all their artwork. So that's good.

Spoon
TV Set

Released exclusively for Record Store Day Black Friday, TV Set finds US indie-rockers Spoon covering The Cramps! A treat for fans of both bands. The other half of this 10” is a ‘Nighttime Version’ of Spoon’s ‘Let Me Be Mine’. Pressed to coloured vinyl, and available only in limited quantities. On Loma Vista.

Manchester Orchestra
A Black Mile To The Surface

Emo gruff Manchester Orchestra, known also as Andy Hull, has roared his way through records about being friendless and loveless, combining indie rawk crunch with the kinda pop-punk self-pity afforded to the Brand News of this world. His new record, A Black Mile to the Surface, sees him try to make a blockbuster iteration of this sound, going for the biggest and boldest sound. Will he be invited to merge with the Arcade Fire? The world waits with baited breath.

Andrew Bird
Are You Serious

Andrew Bird is one of those reasonably popular singer songwriter types who just sits under most peoples radar. Maybe all this will change with this new record which has been scrubbed a little more than previous discs for potential mass appeal. Expect stories in song and dusty Americana that is not afraid of being rootsy.

St. Vincent
St. Vincent

St. Vincent's second self-titled album is where her pop chops truly met with her avant-pop stylings. It's funky, angular, discordant, catchy and futuristic simultaneously, breeding the hits "Digital Witness", "Birth In Reverse" and "Regret". There's also some tasty downtempo numbers in the form of "Prince Johnny" and "I Prefer Your Love". 'St. Vincent' is Annie Clark's most diverse album to date, and arguably her finest hour. It's my personal favourite anyway...
