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

 

Womack updates his material for the 80s, creating grown-up sensual soul.

TrioVD - Maze

 

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.

Flats - Better Living

 

Debut album from a band that probably relishes getting on as many nerves as possible.

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

 

The incomplete ‘incidental music’ for Alceste, conducted with liveliness and sensitivity.

Gallon Drunk - The Road Gets Darker From Here

 

Seventh album of darkly rockin’ blues from Londoners channelling spirits of New Orleans.

Karin Krog and Bengt Hallberg - Cabin in the Sky

 

Krog is on absolutely top form, while Hallberg sounds just like himself.

Hollie Cook - Prince Fatty Presents Hollie Cook in Dub

 

Modern-day dub with authentic depth.

The Band Perry - The Band Perry

 

Radio-friendly country fare, exceptionally produced but lacking originality.

Dexys - One Day I’m Going to Soar

 

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.

The Pond - The Pond

 

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.

2:54 - 2:54

 

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

The Bamboos - Medicine Man

 

The Australians’ hybrid soul and funk sound continues to impress.

Rumer - Boys Don’t Cry

 

Sarah Joyce covers male songwriters both culty and canonical on album number two.
