  • Last week’s 6 Best releases according to our ‘experts’.

It’s pre-Christmas box sets and re-issues week with countless things by Kate Bush, Brian Eno, King Gizzard and even The Police! If you want new music there’s some of that too with brand new things from Smashing Pumpkins, Hen Ogledd and The Good, the Bad and the Queen.

Please tuck in.

New records:

  • Smashing Pumpkins. So overwrought they named it thrice.
  • Pioneering techno legend Robert Hood does his DJ Kicks thing.
  • David Cameron texted Damon Albarn’s mate to say that Brexit would be ‘fine’. Listen to Albarn and his The Good, the Bad and the Queen as they disagree.
  • Nu-shoegaze lot Echo Ladies get Guthrie’d. More about them below too.
  • Ryley Walker covered a Dave Matthews Band album in its entirety and you won’t believe what happened next.
  • Josephine Foster singing about mortality….which you may well do when you’ve been to Shipley.
  • Folk maverick Richard Dawson and harpist Rhodri Davies plus two more pals = Hen Ogledd.
  • Richard Youngs makes an album inspired by grass verges.
  • Big Christmassy Brainfeeder comp.
  • Upper class folkies Mumford and Sons with a new album and 61 date tour. Rejoice!
  • The Liminanas do the odds and sods round-up again.
  • Monolithic goth metal sludge from Esben and the Witch.
