This Week's New Albums: February 3rd 2017
Elbow, Lower Than Atlantis, Surfer Blood and The Menzingers are among the artists with new albums out this week.
Elbow - Little Fictions
Guy Garvey and co. return with their seventh studio album, an album produced by the band's own Craig Potter and which sees them collaborate with The Hallé Orchestra, the Hallé Ancoats Community Choir, members of London Contemporary Voices and session drummer Alex Reeves.
Reeves, who has worked with Bat For Lashes and on frontman Guy Garvey's solo album, has replaced longtime drummer Richard Jupp who left at the start of 2016.
Lower Than Atlantis - Safe In Sound
Mike Duce and the gang drop their fifth studio LP, their second for Sony and their second recorded in their home studio in Watford with frequent collaborator Dan Lancaster.
This record sees the band embrace a cleaner, lighter sound, as shown on singles ‘Had Enough’ and ‘Dumb’.
Surfer Blood - Snowdonia
Joyful Noise Recordings
Florida indie rockers Surfer Blood have had a rotten couple of years. Their founding guitarist Thomas Fekete, who had departed the band to get treatment for sarcoma, a rare form of cancer, after completing work on their 2015 album 1000 Palms, sadly succumbed to the disease earlier this year, leaving them utterly broken-hearted.
This week, the band return with a brand new LP, a tribute to Fekete.
