Album Release Week

Autumn seems to mark the start of a barrage of new album releases. This year's round might not be all your cups of tea but I'm fairly confident there's something in there for everyone. Most of these albums are streaming somewhere on line and I've tracked them down for your listening pleasure!

Laura Marling - A Creature I Don't Know [stream here

St Vincent - Strange Mercy [stream here

You Aint No Picasso is currently featuring 14 downloadable St Vincent covers. Check it out here.

Peggy Sue - Acrobats [stream here]

Girls - Father, Son, Holy Ghost [stream here]

And as if all this isn't enough to keep you busy, Kate Bush has announced a new album. Yes the album rumours were true. It's called 50 Words For Snow and will be released on 21 November 2011. This album will be the second release from Kate’s own label Fish People. Read all about it here.

In the spirit of album releases I think it's also worth a mention that it is 20 years since Nirvana's Nevermind album was released. Last week's Sunday Times ran a feature called 20 'did you knows' about the album. One of the facts was how Chad Channing, Nirvana's first drummer gets royalties for three barely audible cymbal crashes heard at the beginning of 'Polly'. Being as Nevermind went on to sell over 30 million copies I'd imagine Chad Channing is happy he got up and made some noise that day!
