Album of the Week – 24/11/22

If this week is anything to go by, this is the start of the Christmas slump on new album releases! Next week will be the start of the ‘Album of the Year’ listicles (brace yourselves), so maybe that’s the reason for it. Regardless of the reason, there are very few new releases this week!

There are new releases from artists such as Addie Brik (That Dog Don’t Hunt), Mauro Remiddi (of Porcelain Raft called Moonbird), Stormzy (This Is What I Mean) and a few more besides.

There’s also an EP from the great Andy Bell (of RIDE), called ‘Untitled Film Stills’ which you can listen to below.

Our choice for Album of the Week goes to Stargaze with their latest release One! It’s a a “remotely recorded orchestral suite which combines classical and current production methods” so how could we resist really! You can check it out along with the others below.

Album of the Week – One – Stargaze

On 25th November, Transgressive records present ‘One’ –a remotely recorded orchestral suite which combines classical and current production methods. The album was specially composed for the stargaze ensemble by Tyondai Braxton (Battles), Nik Colk Void (Factory Floor / Carter Tutti Void), Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Arone Dyer (Buke+Gase)and Aart Strootman (st a r g a z e). stargaze was founded in Berlin and Amsterdam as a musical collective devoted to crossing the borders of classical and modern music. They are helmed by Merle Scheske, Emanuel Florakis, and conductor André de Ridder, who has worked with Damon Albarn, Max Richter, These New Puritans, Mouse On Mars and Efterklang.
