MARK LANEGAN & DUKE GARWOOD - With Animals - LP €19.99 (Heavenly)

Lanegan and Garwoods new album is a collection of 12 songs that are spectral and sinewy, often defined by the spaces in between the sounds. A ghost’s whistle weaves itself around a pulsing single note on ‘Lonesome Infidel’; ‘Feast To Famine’s hard luck story floats above a guitar part so strung out and washed with distortion it’s become barely recognisable. It’s soul music for anyone who’s long since left the crossroads.

ALEXANDER TUCKER - Don't Look Away - LP €23.99 (Thrill Jockey)

‘Don’t Look Away’ is Alexander Tucker’s third album with Thrill Jockey, completing what Tucker views as the final piece to a trilogy that began with ‘Dorwytch’ (2011) and ‘Third Mouth’ (2012). Alexander Tucker is also a member of Grumbling Fur, his duo with Daniel O’Sullivan. The album cover for ‘Don’t Look Away’ was designed by Tucker himself and showcases his hand-cut collage technique. Tucker’s music brings a distinct otherworldliness, bringing the listener beyond the confines of the physical world and, much like the album cover alludes to, collages together sound that both brings you outside the atmosphere whilst simultaneously connecting you more closely to the seeds of existence. It is in this direction that Tucker continues to carve a position as one of Britain’s most forward-thinking songwriters.
