Mark Lanegan & Duke Garwood – Save Me (2018)

“With Animals is a collaborative album, one where Lanegan shares the credit with his regular collaborator Duke Garwood. Garwood and Lanegan have spent about a decade working together, with Garwood helping out on Lanegan albums like 2017’s Gargoyles. The new album has a decidedly electronic bent. And on the smoky, effective first single “Save Me,” we hear Lanegan growling over organ sustain that reminds me of Suicide.” Source

Carla Bozulich & Freddy Ruppert – Glass House (2018)


“Carla Bozulich is diversely experimental, uncompromising and continues to be ceaselessly devoted to mixing art-punk ethics and creativity. Here, with Quieter, is an intensely emotive, intuitive, enchantingly cohesive collection of previously orphaned and one-off tracks where, uncharacteristically, nothing ever quite screams. Carla’s way with a fleshy edge remains sharp as ever. A couple of these are left over from the bountifully productive sessions from her brilliant and widely-acclaimed 2014 album Boy; others featuring collaborations with the likes of Marc Ribot, Sarah Lipstate (Noveller), Freddy Ruppert, Shahzad Ismaily and more.” Bandcamp

Bambara – Back Home (2018)

“Shadow On Everything, the third LP by Bambara and their first for Wharf Cat Records, represents a decisive step forward for the NYC-via-Georgia trio. Frontman Reid Bateh, drummer Blaze Bateh, and bassist William Brookshire have always been adept students of noise rock and post-punk, mining the work of bands like Swans and The Birthday Party to construct what NPR called their “beautifully dynamic nightmares.” Now, they’ve transcended their early influences to produce a Western Gothic concept album that sounds as big as the desert sky looming over its characters’ lives.”Source
