unusually large amount of great new music that’s blessed our ears over the last
couple of months, some kind of slow-down was inevitable sooner rather than
later, and so it’s been in May 2019. That is, there’s just been a lot of it,
not an absolute gold-rush. So here’s the highlights, so far.
Six years after the graceful Dream River album, former Smog frontman and songwriter Bill Callahan finally announced a comeback, with a double LP titled Shepherd In A Sheepskin Vest. No new tracks cut from it as yet, but stay tuned! The same goes for the very long-awaited new album from the legendary Tool, who last released a record back in 2006. There’s no new music as yet, or even a title for the album, but it definitely (i.e. probably, or maybe) will be out on August 30th.
roll-out for new albums from The
National – whose short film I Am Easy
To Find is now available to stream ahead of the release of the LP of
the same name on Friday 17th – and Flying Lotus continued apace. IDLES
released a brand new track titled ‘Mercedes Marxist’, a song left over from
the sessions for last year’s instant-classic album Joy As An Act Of Resistance and which is soon coming via 7” vinyl single.
crusty stakes, there’s also the first proper single from Sunderland’s
much-loved The Futureheads in nine
years, titled ‘Jekyll’ and hopefully from a brand new album! The Flaming Lips have also announced
that their RSD exclusive album King’s
Mouth is going to get a proper release later this year, and the first new
track from it is available. And the mighty Teenage
Fanclub are back once again with a new single of optimistic power-pop,
titled ‘Everything Is Falling Apart’.
