Uncompromising yet reflective new album from much acclaimed alternative rockers Garbage


Gilbert O'Sullivan (2016)

La Petite Mort
Memorable latest album from 90's chart-toppers James, which was inspired in part by the deaths of singer Tim Booth's mother and best friend


Jennifer Warnes (2016)

The String Quartets
Ian Anderson, John O’Hara and the Carducci Quartet celebrate and reimagine some of Jethro Tull and Anderson’s most beloved original songs in an extraordinary collaboration

Welcome return for the Los Angeles-living Manchurian Morrissey as he releases his long awaited new album on BMG almost four years after his last record


Morrissey (2020)


I Am Not a Dog on a Chain

Twice in a Lifetime
Impressive latest album from London-based soul singer and keyboardist and Mike and the Mechanics co-vocalist Andrew Roachford

Stellastarr
Worthy debut album from new band Stellastarr*, which "like their fellow NYC bands the Strokes and Interpol"m finds them updating "the past and making it modern"

Flawed sixth album and first album in seven years from much acclaimed New York band the Strokes
