Preorder Rundown: Week 01

All coming soon to Drift. Give yourself some browsing time to check out what is en route and sounding güt!

An excellent first week of 2022 for new preorder listings. Here is your weekly rundown.

Father John Misty
Chloë and The Next 20th Century
Bella Union

Father John Misty is back in fine voice, with brilliant production from Jonathan Wilson and some pretty special arrangements by Drew Erickson. 

The Jacket
Captured Tracks

A sort of companion piece to the band's excellent and critically acclaimed fifth album Plum. Really great flow.



Dark, rich and hard to describe. Contemporary jazz x sonics x textures. Great stuff.

At The Hotspot
Bella Union

Produced by Joe Goddard and Al Doyle of Hot Chip, At The Hotspot is the return of supergroup Warmduscher with new label partner, Bella Union.

Gut Feeling
God Unknown

Third LP from Oxfordshire brothers Jim and Loz Beck. Intense and driving, got a feeling this'll be a breakout year for them.

Binker and Moses
Feeding The Machine
Gearbox Records

The long-awaited 3rd studio album by semi-free jazz duo Binker and Moses, vanguards of London's jazz scene.

Half Man Half Biscuit
The Voltarol Years
R. M. Qualtrough

The fifteenth album by Wirral-based rock band Half Man Half Biscuit, via the band's own R. M. Qualtrough label.

Lee Morgan
Blue Note

Joyful and swinging 1966 LP from trumpeter Lee Morgan.

Joe Henderson
Inner Urge
Blue Note

1966 boppin' LP from saxophonist Joe Henderson.

Partner Look
By The Book
Trouble In Mind

Twelve-track, debut charmer from Melbourne-based Partner Look. Lo-fi production and sparking pop, really great stuff.

Herman Dune
Santa Cruz Gold

Self-produced and almost entirely self-performed LP from David Ivar, originally intended to drop over Hannukah in 2018.

Kendra Morris
Nine Lives
Karma Chief Records

Evocative new LP from NYC based Kendra Morris, collaborator to MF Doom, Czarface, Ghostface Killah, Dennis Coffey and David Sitek, to name a few.

Charlie Megira
Da Abtomatic Meisterzinger Mambo Chic
Numero Group

Reissue of his 2000 debut. Sung in both Hebrew and English, Mambo Chic is a real chiller with warm, 4-track hiss.

Also listed this week; Crown Jewels Vol. 2 from Big Crown Records, The Weeknd's Dawn FM, a very limited 20th Anniversary Edition of Alkaline Trio's From Here To Infirmary and a trio of Third Man reissues from The White Stripes.
