2017’s Album Picks – The best of the rest..

Ahead of running down the ten most interesting albums of 2017, here are some others absolutely worthy of your attention:

Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band – Adios Senor Pussycat

Ex-Shack genius kicks the booze, remembers a dozen plus one bittersweet songs cached in the corners of his mind and turns in the comeback record of the year.

 

Wolf Alice – Visions Of A Life

Bigger, better and more ambitious than it’s predecessor, Visions Of A Life went anywhere and did anything, it’s bite just as full of pent up energy as it’s bark.

 

Bonobo – Migration

A decade and a half since he began DJ’ing in Brighton, Migration rightfully confirmed Simon Green as one of electronic music’s foremost artists, a deft collage of textures, voices and styles, postcards written during three years of being near stateless whilst touring the globe.

 

Sea Pinks – Watercourse

Credit the Belfast trio; with the C86 brand of “indie” ostensibly as dead as corduroy their one band revival was as brilliantly observed as it was infused with witty, melodic pop.
