New Release Round-Up 17th September 2021
Former Fleetwood Mac singer-guitarist LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM releases a self-titled solo record. Always a pop innovator, Buckingham recorded the album in his home studio and produced and mixed it himself, interpolating contemporary production tricks into his folk-rock sound.
'Going Going Gone' is the first album in five years from MILD HIGH CLUB (barring the jointly-credited, Middle Eastern jazz-tinged 'Sketches Of Brunswick East' with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard) and is a blissful melange of woozy soft rock synths, Latin rhythms and smooth jazz on CD and indies green vinyl.
JORDAN RAKEI spans the worlds of jazz, neo-soul, R&B and hip-hop via collaborations with Tom Misch, Loyle Carner, Terrace Martin, Common and more, and through his own genre-straddling solo work. His third album 'What We Call Life' is a thoughtful, deeply personal record built from downtempo electronics. JOSÉ GONZÁLEZ returns, plucking guitar and heartstrings alike on 'Local Valley' (indies translucent green LP available), while rounding out the trio of sensitive male singer-songwriters is JAMES VINCENT MCMORROW, whose 'Grapefruit Season' sees him working with some pop mega producers and has a limited edition rose coloured vinyl variant, plus we've got a set of postcards to give away with purchases.
The 16th volume of the Bob Dylan Bootleg Series focuses on the 1980-85 period which saw the release of 'Shot Of Love', 'Empire Burlesque' and the Sly and Robbie produced 'Infidels', comprising the usual mix of rehearsals, outtakes and alternate versions. 'Springtime In New York' is available as a deluxe 5CD set (please message us if you're interested in one of those) in addition to 2CD or 2LP highlights.
'The Last Domino?' is a 2CD and 4LP set celebrating the work of Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford trio-era Genesis as they embark on a live tour later this month.
