Album of the Week – 18/09/20

It’s a slow week for new releases, but there are still a few to keep you entertained.

We’d recommend you check out the new releases from Bear’s Den (Fragments) and another cover album by Gillian Welch (Boots No. 2: The Lost Songs, Vol. 2). There’s also a new release from the Belfast based Jealous of the Birds (Peninsula) and an album called Breach by Fenne Lily. Despite not having huge competition this week, Ed’s latest was hard to resist…

Album of the Week – Ed Harcourt – Monochrome to Colour

“It demands and rewards attention with its grand chords, intricate arrangements and exhilarating soundscapes that defy convention. Speaking of his new release, Ed Harcourt says “The last one was quite minimal, very melancholic. The new record opens its arms to the world.” Monochrome to Colour does just that – it is a thrilling embrace of an album that perfectly showcases Harcourt’s unique talent.” – Album Review By Cathy Brown
