Next Month's Top Albums: August
Every month we scour through the list of upcoming album releases and pick a few which we here in the entertainment.ie offices feel worthy of note. In the next few weeks we will see new albums from Alanis Morissette, Bloc Party, Yeasayer, Minus The Bear and, uh, Brandy. Read more below.
Bloc Party - Four - 21st August
Four is the - yep, you guessed it - fourth album from British rockers Bloc Party. Kele Okereke and his band return to record store shelves for the first time since 2008's Intimacy. The band have really yet to fully fulfil the promise of their fantastic 2005 record Silent Alarm, perhaps this will be the album which puts the train back on the rails.
Yeasayer - Fragrant World - 21st August
Indie rockers Yeasayer are cultivating an extremely prominent reputation for themselves. Their first couple of albums - particularly 2010's Odd Blood - have earmarked them as ones to keep an eye on and anticipation for album number three is high.
Alanis Morrisette - Havoc and Bright Lights - 28th August
Alanis' first album in four years ends what has been a dry spell for the previously prolific Canadian. Havoc and Bright Lights will be her first release on new label Collective Sounds. Rolling Stone, who have heard an advance copy, have said that every song has a "monster chorus". Sounds promising, for Alanis fans at least.
Minus The Bear - Infinity Overhead - 28th August
Infinity Overhead will be the fifth record from Seattle rockers Minus The Bear, a band known for their electronic influences and odd, spaced-out time signatures. Expect more of the same from them this time around.
Brandy - Two Eleven - 28th August
Brandy is a name more synonymous with late 90's and early 2000's Rn'B than today. The Californian will be hoping that this, her sixth album, will be enough to elbow her way back into musical relevance. Time will tell on that one.
