Album of the Week – 06/03/20

This week sees the release of albums by Cornershop and Stephen Malkmus, among others. There is also an interesting remix album in the form of The Cinematic Orchestra (To Believe Remixes).

This week we’ve cheated a little for our album of the week as it is not strictly speak a new album! Hunted is a “collaborative reworking of 2018’s Mercury-nominated Hunter” by Anna Calvi, but on a slow week we’re willing to bend the rules a little. There are contributions from IDLES’ Joe Talbot (on Wish), Courtney Barnett and Charlotte Gainsbourg (Eden) among others. Check it out below.

“In the summer of 2018, Anna Calvi released her third album Hunter. On the album, she explored sexuality and breaking the laws of gender conformity. Following a stellar 18 months, which saw Calvi write her first television score (for Peaky Blinders) and receive her third consecutive Mercury Prize nomination (the first solo artist to achieve this feat), Calvi has now crafted a stunning reworking of Hunter into Hunted.

Revisiting her first recordings for Hunter, Calvi found they offered an intimate and private view of the songs’ initial intentions. Distilled to their bare essence on Hunted: her masterful guitar playing and formidable vocals, Calvi then asked Courtney Barnett, Joe Talbot (IDLES), Charlotte Gainsbourg and Julia Holter to collaborate with her and further transform the songs.”
