Album of the Week – 02/10/20

First off, how is William Shatner still making music? You have to love him really. This time he tackles “The Blues” and it kinda sounds like all his previous stuff; filled with intensity!

There are some new Irish albums of note in the form of Ailbhe Reddy (Personal History) and Alex Gough (Forever Classic). There are also some old favourites such as Matt Berninger (of The National) with Serpentine Prison and Born Ruffians with SQUEEZE.

You should check out the Floral Prince by Field Medic below as it’s quite special. In the end, it was hard to resist the quirky allures of our dear friend Elvis.

Album of the Week – Creation Myths by Elvis Perkins

“Creation Myths, produced by Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby, Guster, Benjamin Booke), will mark the first album Perkins has released since his soundtrack to the 2017’s The Blackcoat’s Daughter, a film directed by his brother, Osgood. The forthcoming LP makes subtle nods to Americana and spooky, blissed-out folk, but never lights for too long on any one spot. If there is a lyrical or thematic through-line to Creation Myths, it might simply be a longing for connection, be it romantic or spiritual. He notes, “Sometimes you do the best things when you don’t know what you’re doing yet. I called this record Creation Myths because, in a way, I really don’t know how these songs came into being. So they are the explanation of themselves.”
