Vol. 1: Lordy Lorde!

___________

I know her name is pronounced ‘lord’ but…

there is something about her new single, Green Light, that causes ecumenical exclamation and exasperation. Taken from her upcoming sophomore album, Melodrama, it proves the New Zealander is one of the most important and popular artists in modern music. It is hard to say how her album will sound but there are high hopes following her successful 2013 debut. Away from her, there are big new album releases from Sleaford Mods and Ed Sheeran; new tracks from Laura Marling and Lucy Rose (ft. The Staves). As usual, a parade-load of new songs and those numbers that, when first released, slipped me by. It has been another interesting one for new music – that is reflected in the long-list. I am excited to hear what Laura Marling’s forthcoming album (Semper Femina) sounds like when it arrives next week. Sleaford Mods show they are at their fiercest and superb best. It is not just about the big artists. Plenty of intrigue and wonder from those working under the spotlight.

Aside from Lorde and her latest song; plenty of treasure and allure from this week’s selection. It is March so it is a great time to look ahead to spring and the sort of albums and artists that will make a big impact. Get your ears around the songs above – if not done already – and prepare for another week of stunning new music. I’ll try and collate as much of the best arriving next week but am really pumped. As I said; Laura Marling releases Semper Femina on Friday and I have already tipped it as the album of 2017 – hopefully that premature prediction will pay off. I will be sure to include another track from it this time next week…
