Currents was probably one of the most anticipated albums of 2015, and it has surpassed the hype. You can bet you’ll see this in our albums of the year!
Key Markets is Jason Williamson & Andre Fearn’s latest offering and is maybe a little more abstract than their other albums, but still deals heavily with the disorientation of modern existence.
Lianne La Havas:
After she finished touring her debut album, Lianne took some time out and visited Jamaica with her mum to meet long lost relatives. While she was there she started work on Blood her second album and you can hear those sunny chilled out Jamaican vibes throughout the album.
You must have heard us bang on about this band before, as we are super fans! Green Lanes just highlights why we love them. The licks and lyrics conjure up images of sixties California and seventies New York. So sit back relax and take a journey through time.
Marks To Prove It sounds full of confidence as this is their fourth album, and have completely honed they’re sound and are happy with the direction the band is headed in.
Can’t Wait For:
She has to be one of if not our favourite female solo artist, so suffice to say when Have You In My Wilderness was announced we got more than a little giddy. Have You in My Wilderness is also Holter’s most sonically intimate album, with her vocals front and centre in the mix, lifted out of the layers of smeared, hazy effects. The result is striking: clear and vivid, but disarmingly personal. Listen to the lead single here.
His self titled debut album is likely to slip under most people’s radar but is definitely worth a listen especially if you are a Frank Ocean fan.
Everyone’s favourite goofball is releasing a mini-LP, Another One. Recorded entirely by himself in a short period of time between relentless tour schedule. If it’s anything like 2 and Salad Days you know is going to be fantastic!
Have you heard Pretty Pimpin’? It’s an instant hit, and the first single from his sixth studio album B’lieve I’m Going Down. This is what Kim Gordon had to say: “Kurt does his own myth-making; a boy/man with an old soul voice in the age of digital everything becoming something else, which is why this focused, brilliantly clear and seemingly candid record is a breath of fresh air. Recorded and mixed in a number of locations, including Los Angeles and Joshua tree, b’lieve i'm goin down… is a handshake across the country, east to west coast, thru the dustbowl history (“valley of ashes”) of woody honest strait forward talk Guthrie, and a cali canyon dead still nite floating in a nearly waterless landscape. The record is all air, weightless, bodyless, but grounded in convincing authenticity, in the best version of a singer songwriter upcycling.” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Hollow Meadows is his eighth studio album, and see’s Hawley return to the classic, sophisticated song writing and subtle arrangements that made him so widely loved & revered in the first place.
