Preorder Rundown: Week 21 & 22

Preorder Rundown: Week 21 & 22

It's a double drop this week with forthcoming highlights from week's 21 and 22.

Look who is back back back, plus a few scorchers on RVNG INTL, L.I.T.A. digging up gold and much more to discover.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Cool It Down
Secretly Canadian

Oh yeaaaah! Their first release in almost a decade, and what a splendid return it is. The eight-track collection, bound to be a landmark in their catalogue, is an expert distillation of their best gifts that impels you to move, and cry, and listen closely.

Flore Laurentienne
Volume II

Mathieu David Gagnon continues his voyage into environment and emotion with Volume II - an enveloping and truly beautiful opus drawing inspiration from the rivers and rugged wilderness of his native Quebec.

Various Artists
Earl’s Closet: The Lost Archive of Earl McGrath 1970–1980
Light In The Attic

One we are just so excited for. A real treasure trove of rare and previously unheard recordings discovered in the late-great Earl McGrath’s apartment. Honestly, so many gems across 2 LPs to be discovered and loved. Check out the mini-doc below.

Air Waves
The Dance
Fire Records

‘The Dance’ is the fifth record from Nicole Schneit (aka Air Waves). Uncanny pop that's full of heady hooks, deeply danceable grooves and unshakable melodies.

Brownswood Recordings

Exquisitely rich soundscapes from one of the UK's most forward thinking jazz outfits. Debuts really don’t get much better than this. We are hyped!

Mura Masa
Demon Time
Polydor Records

Some really slick and head-spinning alt-pop here, full of collaborations that really take the record to some unexpected places; including this cheeky little re-imagining of 3 of a Kind’s 2004 hit ‘Baby Cakes’.

Guitar Music
Play It Again Sam

Following up from last year’s much loved ‘Grand National’ EP, Liverpool four-piece Courting return with a handsome debut record full of the boisterous whip and angular instrumentation that caught so many of our ears.

Oliver Sim
Hideous Bastard

Hideous Bastard is the debut solo album from The xx’s Oliver Sim. Full of surreal pop sounds that escape into the ether and break free, Hideous Bastard is a bold and ambitious debut that sees Oliver explore his voice and his capacity to evoke emotion, melding masculinity and tenderness, beauty with a baritone.

Sababa 5 & Shiran Tzfira
Batov Records

Tel Aviv based four-piece Sababa 5 is a supergroup of musicians from the local scene, steeped in psych rock, funk, and traditional Yemenite music. If you dug Altın Gün then you will be all over this - we certainly are!

Cheri Knight
American Rituals
Another nod for RVNG this week with Cheri Knight’s American Rituals. A really unique and compositional voice - quite literally. The seven works anthologised here are foremost an expression of her elemental approach to creating, rather than writing, music - where poly-vocal chants, spoken-word collages, primal post-punk excursions and hymn-like incantations are bound together by a performative energy.
