Album review

Munya

Blue Pine EP (Luminelle)

Munya is the stage name of Canada’s Josie Boivin. Raised in Saguenay, Quebec and based in Montreal, this is her third EP and the final in a trilogy.



The Cranberries

In The End (BMG)

I must confess to feeling a little guilty.



The National

I Am Easy To Find (4AD)

The National could have quite easily titled this, their eighth album, I Am Easy To Love, and they would have been absolutely right.



George McFall

XIV: Surrounder (Tenement)

It’s been nearly eight years since his first album, God Save The Clean



Sebadoh

Act Surprised (Dangerbird)

Way back in the late 80s, Dinosaur Jr’s bassist went off and formed his own band



Citizen Bravo

Build a Thing of Beauty (Chemikal Underground)

As the term usually conjures up images of dragons and wizards, maybe this isn’t a ‘concept album’ in the usual sense.



False Bliss

Ritual Terrains (Scottish Fiction)

Some readers will recall Scottish indie band DTHPDL.



Delta Mainline

Bel Avenir (Rehab Sound)

It’s been over five years since this Edinburgh-based combo’s last release



C Duncan

Health (Fatcat)

2017’s album ‘The Midnight Sun’ established C Duncan as a musician whose work could comfortably stand alongside any of the dreampop greats whose music had inspired him.



Siobhan Wilson

The Departure (Suffering Fools)

This is an impressive album, and has some crushing moments.
