The Invisible - Rispah

 

A set of contemplation and catharsis, maintaining its emotional grip for a long time.

Ladyhawke - Anxiety

 

Pip Brown’s overdue second LP is as tight and catchy as a baseball mitt.

Bobby Womack - The Poet

One of the most inventive and transgressive albums you’ll encounter this year.

Jack Savoretti - Before the Storm

 

Third album of gruffly sensitive strum-pop from tousle-haired Italian-English Londoner.

George Frideric Handel - Alceste (soprano: Lucy Crowe; tenor: Benjamin Hulett; bass-baritone: Andrew Foster-Williams; Early Opera Company; conductor: Christian Curnyn)

Gallon Drunk - The Road Gets Darker From Here

Modern-day dub with authentic depth.

Dexys are back with wisdom and wings. Some of us never doubted.

Public Image Ltd - This is PiL

 

Rotten returns with a curious mixture of rage and nostalgia.

An elegant, charming and quietly profound record.

Architects - Daybreaker

 

A fine fifth album from the Brighton metallers, set to stand the test of time.

Regina Spektor - What We Saw From the Cheap Seats

 

The truth about Regina Spektor is that quirky isn't the half of it.

A collection of mature and addictive tracks from sisters doing it their own way.
