Beck, Robert Plant and St. Vincent mean we are not exactly short of world-class music this week! It is rare seeing a trinity of year-best-potential records arrive on the same day. I have included songs from each artist’s new release – Colors, Carry Fire and MASSEDUCTION, respectively – and collate fresh inspiration from Noel Gallagher, Dave and Lo Moon. It is a week where some true titans nestle alongside the newcomers – those making their way to the mainstream.

After a couple of weeks – that have promised great music but few epic selections – it seems this is the week where we can reclaim some of that giddy headiness…

That should be enough to tuck into this weekend! It is amazing seeing Beck, Robert Plant and St. Vincent release on the same day. Other albums – including the new one from King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard – should not go unrecognised.

I am excited seeing how October pans out and what other treats there are in store for us all!

_______

THERE are not many big releases…

Image may contain: 1 person, indoor

IN THIS PHOTO: HAIM

this week but there are new offerings from Sam Smith and HAIM – a fresh video from the latter. It is an interesting week in terms of the blend of music and sounds. I am interested in new albums by Liam Gallagher and The Darkness; tracks from Soulwax and Blue Hawaii – there are some interesting treats and below-the-radar songs worth investigating. A full and varied assortment of tracks from the biggest stars in music – and those making their way through at the minute.

It is an intriguing and exciting start to October and ensures fascination and curiosity will remain over the next few weeks.

This week has seen a few interesting albums (Liam Gallagher among them) but St. Vincent is bringing one out next week. We cannot reach the giddy heights of the Benjamin Clementine/Wolf Alice week – two year-defining albums releases right at once! Maybe October will see some huge albums come out but it seems like the tracks will be more interesting and solid.

I am looking forward to next week and what comes out; how many big songs arrive – and what treasures will drop from the musical heavens.
