Album of the Week – 16/04/21

After a brief break for Easter, we’re back with your favourite ‘Album of the Week’ slot. We do hope you don’t look at other ‘Album of the Week’ articles, but if you do, you’ll know they’re vastly inferior!

This week is not the stuff of legend but there are a few new releases worth your attention. Any release from Sharon Van Etten is exciting, even if it is only an album of cover versions (Epic Ten). If you’re looking for something slow and folky, then we suggest Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi with their album They’re Calling Me Home. It’s really quite good!

Does the name Spencer Krug mean much to you? Ok, he’s from Wolf Parade and he has a new album out. You can shout along to it, which is enough for us sometimes!
