The Magic Numbers - Outsiders [LP] Outsiders [LP]

Co-produced by Dave Izumi in Izumi's own Echo Zoo studio in Eastbourne, work began on Outsiders in early 2017. The album, though instantly recognisable as a Magic Numbers record in it's melodies, begins with a more raucous punch sonically. The confidence is more evident than ever before, noticeable immediately in the more bluesy, gnarly guitar sound. Songs like 'The Keeper', even having a distinct T. Rex feel. I've been revisiting lots of early rock'n'roll and blues records, Bo Diddley, Howlin' Wolf", Stodart explains. "I've fallen madly in love with the electric guitar again for sure. I love T. Rex, and Bowie. The silver lining of the sadness of losing ?David Bowie?? was that you go back and become obsessed again. Even the way he left us was a work of art.' There's also been a subtle but significant shift in Stodart's lyrical themes. 'It wasn't a conscious decision to refrain from looking inward but I did feel a shift creatively with the things I wanted to say and share this time around. It's allowed me the opportunity to play with characters like Michele & I have done on 'Ride Against The Wind" which we based upon a fictitious motorcycle girl gang who've grown tired of conforming and towing the line in their everyday lives." This sense of fun is also reflected in the occasional references Romeo throws in of other people's songs, such as namechecking Kate Bush's "Hounds Of Love", and "Everybody's Talkin'" by ?Fred Neil??. "I enjoy throwing in those things in a way to see if people notice, it makes songwriting more playful." The lead single is the epic Neil Young meets Fleetwood Mac" Sweet Divide". "The couplet "Maybe there's no grand design/What if this is all we find?" hints at a humanist, even atheist interpretation. "No-one knows what's to come," says Romeo. "We're all just fumbling in the dark, searching, sometimes it can be comforting to acknowledge that. The expansive, extraordinary "Runaways" is one of the album's standout moments. "It's a love song for the misfits in society" Romeo explains, 'It's saying we're 'scorned lovers' 'damaged goods' but let's stick together and embrace it, I think there's a beauty in that'

Cowboy Junkies - All That Reckoning [LP] All That Reckoning [LP]

With their new album, All That Reckoning, The Cowboy Junkies once again gently shake the listener to wake up. Whether commenting on the fragile state of the world or on personal relationships, this new collection may be the most powerful album the Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded. Its a deeper and a more complete record than weve ever done before, says songwriter / guitarist Michael Timmins. These songs are about reckoning on a personal level and reckoning on a political level.

Rayland Baxter - Wide Awake [LP] Wide Awake [LP]

Rayland Baxter’s new album is a dream realized. Since he first started writing music, this roving rock ‘n’ roll philosopher dreamed of a space where he could devote every waking hour to creating. The hard-touring musician finally found it in the form of an abandoned rubber band factory in Franklin, KY, where he covered the windows, threw a mattress on the floor, and with guitar and piano in tow, spent three straight months writing. At night he would sit and listen to the sounds around him: coyotes, the howling wind, the faint prattle of the nightly TV news. The result of this isolation quest is ‘Wide Awake’ (July 13/ATO Records), a ten-song collection that celebrates the best aspects of humanity and grasps at understanding the worst.
