Latest from the BBC
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.
The Invisible - Rispah
A set of contemplation and catharsis, maintaining its emotional grip for a long time.
Flats - Better Living
Debut album from a band that probably relishes getting on as many nerves as possible.
Gallon Drunk - The Road Gets Darker From Here
Seventh album of darkly rockin’ blues from Londoners channelling spirits of New Orleans.
TrioVD - Maze
One of the most inventive and transgressive albums you’ll encounter this year.
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.
The Band Perry - The Band Perry
Radio-friendly country fare, exceptionally produced but lacking originality.
Karin Krog and Bengt Hallberg - Cabin in the Sky
Krog is on absolutely top form, while Hallberg sounds just like himself.
Jack Savoretti - Before the Storm
Third album of gruffly sensitive strum-pop from tousle-haired Italian-English Londoner.
