Fridays New Releases - June 24th
*Quick note before jumping in to these. Kanye haven't arrived yet but should tomorrow.
Brian Jonestown Massacre - Fire Doesn't Grow On Trees
19th album from Brian Jonestown, 19th! Anton Newcombe won't stop. Recorded in the lockdown years, and now released in the not lockdown years. It looks another good offering, listen to the lead single 'The Real' here.
*Kanye West - Donda
Released in 2021 and now finally out on vinyl. It's a big ol' 4LP this one and a must have for the Kanye fans.
Sessa - Estrela Acesa (Blue Vinyl)
I mentioned this on newsletter number 1 if I remember correctly, and now here it is. If you like Jorge Ben and/or Caetano Veloso, this is a nice modern offering. Take a trip to Brazil, via Walkden.
London Odense Ensemble - Jaiyede Sessions Vol.1
Now for the jazz. I'm just going to copy from the accompanying write up the label did for this one as they've written some good words, but that is their job! 'On this unique session, two of the finest exponents of the London jazz scene, Tamar Osborn and Al MacSween, join forces with members of the celebrated Danish psychedelic underground - Jonas Munk, Jakob Skøtt and Martin Rude – to create a heady sonic brew'. 'Heady Sonic Brew', I couldn't have said it better myself. Also, if anyone needs a band name, I don't think Sonic Brew is taken. Could be like Sonic Youth, but exclusively for Tea drinkers.
Soccer Mommy - Sometimes Forever (Pink Vinyl)
3rd album from Soccer Mommy, enjoyed the first two so looking forward to hearing this. For those not familiar, if you like Phoebe Bridgers, Snail Mail, Tomberlin, etc, and have somehow missed Soccer Mommy, definitely give it a try.
My Bloody Valentine - Isn't Anything (Deluxe Edition With Prints)
Shoegaze pioneers debut in a nice little deluxe package. Do you own this album? No!? Now's your chance.
Fu Manchu - No One Rides For Free
Fu Manchu rock. 2000 units printed on red/white splatter vinyl with never before seen photos of the band and flyers from shows around time of release, part of a 30th anniversary vinyl reissue series.
Porcupine Tree - Closure / Continuation (White Vinyl)
New album from Porcupine Tree, first since 2009! A decade of ideas brought together on record from the progressive rock explorers.
Reverand Baron - From Anywhere
Debut LP on Karma Chief Records from the Drugdealer band member. Another one with some good one liners in the write up for me to use, 'From the academy of deep soul and no ego', nice, but I'll try my hand at my own, I'd describe it as 'Liquor store Americana'.
Timber Timbre - Timber Timbre
Self titled 3rd album from Timber Timbre originally released in 2010 now reissued on a smokey/clear vinyl. Blues, country, and folk tinged record, I think if you like Richard Swift and others who's music orbits that kind of space you may well like this.
