Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending June 21, 2018)

My boyfriend and I recently watched the movie Hostiles, a movie we were both thoroughly unimpressed by, but there was an interesting tidbit in the IMDb trivia. Lead actress Rosamund Pike was apparently cast, in part, based on her performance in the music video for Massive Attack's "Voodoo in My Blood". It is one of the more memorable videos in recent memory.

"Voodoo in My Blood" came from the Ritual Spirit EP, but it's been eight years since their last album, Heligoland. If they announce a follow-up, look for it on my Upcoming Releases page!

This week, Cat Power announced her tenth album, Wanderer.

Cat Power has a career spanning back more than two decades and numerous critically-acclaimed records. Her style has moved between folk and punk, to even electronica on her last album, Sun.

That last record was a particular favorite of mine, one of my top records for 2012. She's been fairly quiet, at least musically, in the years since. She reported some health problems later that same year, and had a child sometime in 2015.

I figured the hiatus was in part to focus on her family and that it may be a long while before getting new music, but on July 18, she announced the new album. No songs from the album have been unveiled yet, but we did get a snippet of music in the trailer for the album.

Wanderer is set for release on October 5.
