Barry Adamson – Love Sick Dick
Hot on the heels of last year's Know Where To Run, Adamson's new EP focuses on messed up, unrequited love and lust. The six songs come laden with the atmospherics of his fictitious soundtrack work.
Barry Adamson – They Walk Among Us
Cast – Kicking Up The Dust
Sixth album from John Power and friends. The ex-La brings a pop sensibility to whatever he does and the lead track has a bluesy gospel feel.
Cast – Paper Chains
Jah Wobble – The Lago Years
After his departure from Public Image Limited, Wobble set about a diverse range of collaborations on his Lago label – this reissue includes songs from the six EPs released on the label between 1981 and 1985. Expect dub, jazz, pop and spoken word, all driven along by his instantly recognisable bass rumble.
Jah Wobble – Invaders Of The Heart (Decadent Disco Mix)
-M-, Toumani Diabate, Sidiki Diabaté, Fatoumata Diawara – Lamomali
Anything the Kora-playing Diabates do is worth a listen and this collaboration with Matthieu Chedid mixes his Lebanese roots, rap and beats with their West African sound.
-M-, Toumani & Sidiki Diabaté – Bal de Bamako ft. Fatoumata Diawara, Oxmo Puccino
Kendrick Lamar – DAMN
And finally, after much press speculation, Kendrick Lamar’s much anticipated new album and follow-up from To Pimp a Butterfly, is set to be released on 13 and 14 April, and has been announced to contain 14 tracks and includes guests Rihanna, James Blake and U2. Song titles are gnomically single-worded and in capitals. Despite the hype, innovative fusions of hip-hop, jazz, other genres and Trump-era political and social commentary will almost certainly feature.
Kendrick Lamar – HUMBLE
