PRESS PLAY: New Albums out April 26th - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

What light through yonder window breaks? Hark! It is April’s last batch of new albums. Annie Clark reboots St. Vincent with her intense (and self-produced) seventh album, All Born Screaming. Not counting the wonderful 2019 Calexico collab Years to Burn, Light Verse is the first Iron and Wine album in seven years; its lush arrangements and tender lyrics are well worth the wait. Following the longest gap between studio albums in the duo’s history (only four years, a testament to their relentless productivity), Pet Shop Boys sound invigorated on Nonetheless, their 15th full-length. With a title that evokes his streetcorner busking roots, Charley Crockett’s $10 Cowboy is a lively set of soulful honky-tonk swagger.

French duo Justice team up with Tame Impala, Miguel, and Thundercat on Hyperdrama, their fourth album of maximalist electro revival. Dr. Dog drummer Eric Slick combines humor with existential dread and jittery art-rock melodies on his third solo album, New Age Rage. Since the twin 2021 releases of Good Morning America and Not a Son, Lawrence Rothman has shifted their focus to film scoring; The Plow That Broke the Plains is an appropriately cinematic return to songwriting. The Zutons were breakout stars of the mid-‘00s Liverpool scene; more than 15 years after their last album, The Big Decider re-establishes the trio’s trademark danceable guitar pop.
