Baby Driver OST
This selection from the new Edgar Wright movie is in with a shout for soundtrack of the year with a truly eclectic tour of sixties pop, soul, jazz, blues from Alexis Korner that moves on to seventies prog and glam before coming smack up to date with Kid Koala, Sky Ferreira and Run The Jewels.
Chase Me – Danger Mouse ft. Run The Jewels & Big Boi
Big Star – The Best Of Big Star
Welcome compilation of material from Alex Chilton, Chris Bell and co whose blend of Byrds-tinged power pop was an influence on the likes of REM and the Replacements. This album focuses on the three albums from 1972 to 1978.
Big Star – September Gurls
Waxahatchee – Out In The Storm
The fourth album from Katie Crutchfield is a breakup album and finds her in robust mood. There's certainly some introspection but this set is has a feeling of being recorded live in the room that bristles with energy directed at the object of her ire.
Waxahatchee – Silver
Lucy Rose - Something’s Changing
Rose is an interesting character. Fresh from a fan-arranged eight week tour of some decidedly non-rock'n'roll parts of South America which forms the basis for a mini-documentary film, Rose has just released her second album of folk-tinged pop which may appeal to Laura Marling devotees.
Lucy Rose - No Good At All
Last Night From Glasgow
One of my discoveries of the summer is the not-for-profit Last Night From Glasgow record label which is into its second year. New recordings are crowdfunded by music fans who receive a bundle of vinyl releases each year from the likes of Emme Woods, Mark W Georgsson and Sun Rose. The added attraction if you happen to live around Glasgow is access to a diverse range of gigs and events for LNFG members.
Sun Rose – Smirk
This week's selection is by Michael Moloney, aka llamalpaca from the vinyl-only record and design store, Chameleon, with additions by The Landlord.
