New Release Round-up 25th March 2022
'Warm Chris' is the latest from striking New Zealand singer-songwriter ALDOUS HARDING, once again working with producer John Parish who helmed her breakthrough record 'Designer'. This album leans a lot more into the discomfiting weirdness that characterises Harding's live performances. Collaborators include Welsh indie maven H. Hawkline, jazz drummer Seb Rochford and an almost unrecognisable Jason Williamson (making his second vocal cameo of the month). Indeed, Harding herself is almost unrecognisable from track to track as she runs through a dizzying variety of vocal registers and personas in a classy display of versatility and artistic curiosity.
PLACEBO prove a capacity for reinvention and relevance on 'Never Let Me Go', their first album in nine years and first since the departure of drummer Steve Forrest. The CD features and 'immersive' booklet and lyric cards, and there's an indies red double-vinyl.
IBIBIO SOUND MACHINE's 'Electricity' boasts production from Hot Chip. Buzzsaw guitars and spacey reverb adorn 'Sonancy', a first album in some 23 years from Robert Hampson's influential LOOP. 'Songs Of The Recollection' compiles cover versions old and new from COWBOY JUNKIES. There are new albums from Weller-approved blue eyed soul combo STONE FOUNDATION, Australian singer-songwriter XAVIER RUDD and rising Jamaican pop singer KOFFEE, a new MICHAEL BUBLE CD plus vinyl issues of ANAIS MITCHELL's beautifully written self-titled record and JON HOPKINS' Ram Dass-inspired 'Music for Psychedelic Therapy'.
