Album of the Week – 19/11/21

It’s a quiet week, no bones about it! After the last few weeks where there was a multitude to pick from, it’s all gone a little bit slow! Is Christmas coming or something?

Still, there are new releases from Robert Plant & Alison Krauss (A collection of covers called Raise the Roof) and Brian Wilson (A collection of covers of Beach Boys songs called At My Piano). There are also some interesting EPs with Nathan Fake (Blizzards Remixes EP) and James (The Campfire EP).

In the end, the Deap Vally won out with their new album Marriage! Sometimes you just need to play some loud music, and these guys do it as good as any. It’s an album with some interesting collaborations including KT Tunstall, Peaches, Jennie Vee and jennylee.

Album of the Week – Deap Vally – Marriage

Being in a band is like being in a marriage: sometimes it’s magical, sometimes it’s unbearably challenging. To reinvigorate that marriage, Deap Vally have made their third album a genre-bending experiment with new collaborators and instrumentation that push the limits of what has previously defined the duo – Marriage is their musical Rumspringa, if you will. The album sees Julie and Lindsey break free of the rigid creative constraints within which they previously existed (two members, two instruments, two voices) and invite in collaborators such as KT Tunstall, Peaches, Jennie Vee and jennylee, as well as a range of producers including Allen Salmon, Josiah Mazzaschi and Harvey Mason Jr.
