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.

Rhye
Spirit

Having spent nearly five years following up his successful debut with 2018’s sophomore effort Blood, Mike Milosh’s Rhye project wastes no time in delivering more new music with eight-track mini-album Spirit. Written around a baby grand piano gifted to him by his girlfriend, Milosh achieves a sense of calm spirituality. 

Injury Reserve
Injury Reserve

Injury Reserve are a rap trio from Arizona. They mission is to make make experimental hip hop more accessible. This self-titled album is their debut although they’ve been together for 6 years. It follows two critically successful mixtapes - Live From The Dentist’s Office (2015) and Floss (2016). LP and Cd on Loma Vista.

Bad Books
III

Bad Books undergo a slight line-up change for their first album in seven years. Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull and Robert McDowell are joined by musician Kevin Devine. They unveiled new songs from this album III at this year’s SXSW festival, where they got a tremendous reception for their more upbeat nature. 

HEALTH
VOL4::SLAVES OF FEAR

HEALTH are back on Loma Vista (Denzel Curry, St. Vincent) with new LP VOL4 :: SLAVES OF FEAR. Much like 2015’s Death Magic, this set finds the LA group streamlining the noise-barrages of their early work into sleeker, poppier song structures. There are flavours of cyberpunk, industrial rock and even a little nu-metal to many of the cuts here. The manner in which Jacob Duszik’s vocals glide serenely over the frenzy gives VOL4 :: SLAVES OF FEAR a strong Placebo vibe.

Rhye
Blood Remixed

The minimalist and moody perspective on R&B offered by Mike Milosh’s Rhye is opened up to fans of more genres with this 14-track remix album of the project’s 2018 sophomore record Blood. Remixers include Moon Boots, Little Dragon, Jacques Green, Mano Le Tough, Washed Out and Mansionair. 

Local Natives
Violet Street

Local Natives tend to average an LP every three years, so given that their last full-length came out in 2016 it’s about time they dropped their fourth album. And lo, here have we Violet Street. Violet Street is pretty standard fare from the Silver Lake group, all anthemic indie tunes and soaring vocals. Tame Impala, Foals and that.

Show Me The Body
Dog Whistle

Very hyped New York punk rockers Show Me The Body return with their new album Dog Whistle. There's is a muscularity about them that makes it very easy to fall under their spell. As the name implies, Show Me The Body have been as impacted by the current political climate as anyone, and aren't afraid to lash out.

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.

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.

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 hyphy 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.

Sylvan Esso
What Now

Electro-pop duo Sylvan Esso made up of Amelia Meath and Nicholas Sanborn (Made Of Oak) move to Loma Vista for their sophomore album What Now. Meath’s vocals range from CocoRosie fragility to a pop choir version of Zola Jesus, whilst the music follows a modernised 80s synth tract fans of College  might enjoy.

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.
