Welcome once more to our rundown of the best music released in the past seven days. We kick off this week with Chvrches
Chvrches – Get Out
Love Is Dead, according to the title of Chvrches upcoming new album. Well in that case, we intensely like the lead single…..
Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliott & Kelly Rowland – Get It
Could we be getting the first new Busta Rhymes album in six years? Let’s hope so. always good to hear new stuff from Missy Elliott too
Lykke Li – Time In A Bottle
Lykke Li somehow manages to make the verses of this Jim Croce ditty sound menacing, but then everything’s happy again come the chorus. A great cover, but what’s she up to?
Soccer Mommy – Cool
My friend Quilly turned me on to Soccer Mommy, AKA 20-year-old American Sophie Allison. Her first album proper, Clean, will be with us on March 2nd through Fat Possum Records
The Streets – If You Ever Need To Talk I’m Here
Mike Skinner released two new songs in December, and a third last Wednesday. Expect an album announcement shortly
Reissue Of The Week:
Roxy Music – Roxy Music
Reissued as a 3CD + 1DVD deluxe box set, there’s plenty to love about this new collection based around Roxy’s 1972 debut. The CDs house the original album, demos, out-takes, and BBC sessions, while the DVD has the album in 5.1 surround sound and some live footage from 1972.
