New music for July 2018

Written by · Published Jun 29, 2018

Florence + The Machine, Let's Eat Grandma

Florence + The Machine - High As Hope

Florence has moved seamlessly from the quirky performer we first saw surrounded on stage by bird cages and assorted paraphernalia to a fully fledged stadium filler. High As Hope continues her ascent.

Let’s Eat Grandma - I’m All Ears

The Norwich synth duo really hit their stride on this stunningly original second LP. The album is produced by David Wrench, who has worked with the xx and Frank Ocean.

Ray Davies - Our Country: Americana Act II

The legendary voice of The Kinks has hit a rich new seam with his Americana work. Americana Act II riffs on his American influences and covers the incident when he was shot during a mugging in 2004. Despite the serious subject matter, there is plenty of his trademark wit and observation.

Wilko Johnson - Blow Your Mind

Wilko Johnson releases his first album of original new material since the 1980s.

Years & Years - Palo Santo

Plenty of great choruses on the follow up to their 2015 debut album Communion. This is more ‘pop’ than their earlier work and will be everywhere this summer.

Kamasi Washington - Heaven and Earth

Latest album from the saxophone virtuoso who has often been hailed as the saviour of modern jazz.
