Album of the Week – 11/09/20

This week we have a multitude of new work (and a lot of it worth checking out) but no obvious stand out album! There is new work from Suzanne Vega (An Evening of New York Songs and Stories), The Flaming Lips (American Head) and Susanna (Baudelaire & Piano) but… after much deliberation, we went for the return of some old friends.

Album of the Week: Doves – The Universal Want

“The Universal Want is the fifth studio album by Doves. The album was released by Heavenly Recordings and Virgin/EMI on 11 September 2020. The Universal Want is the band’s first album following a hiatus that began in 2010; the band members pursued solo projects in the interim, until a regrouping for a charity concert in 2019 brought about discussions of creating new music.

Albums of Note:

— Suzanne Vega – An Evening of New York Songs and Stories
