Five amazing additions to this week's artwork selection for Creative New Music Friday!
1. Jorja Smith - Be Right Back
The 23-year-old Walsall singer-songwriter has sated fans' thirst for a second album with an eight-track collection the showcases her experimental side.
2. The Black Keys - Delta Kream
Returning to the simpler joys of their early records, the Ohio duo’s 10th album covers songs by the north Mississippi artists that continue to inspire them
3. St. Vincent - Daddy's Home
Playing with identity and touching on family matters, Annie Clark’s sixth album with wilfully twisted musical backing is hugely impressive.
4. Sons of Kemet - Black To The Future
The experimental jazz quartet, led by Shabaka Hutchings, recruit Kojey Radical, Lianne La Havas and more for an incendiary evocation of Black Lives Matter
5. Damien Jurado - The Monster Who Hated Pennsylvania
Adhering neither to navel-gazing soul-baring and self-consciously ‘poetic’ obliqueness, Damien Jurado manages the feat with virtuoso ease on The Monster Who Hated Pennsylvania.
