SHE & HIM – VOLUME ONE – 3* Promising debut album from Zooey Deschanel and M Ward; the latest Indie/Hollywood hook-up

PRIMAL SCREAM – BEAUTIFUL FUTURE – 3* “It’s too blunt, messy and reverent to be up there with their best, but you hope that it also serves a secondary function: to clear the decks for one last magnificent tilt at rock deification on album number ten,” says Uncut’s Sam Richards. Check out the review here. Then let us know what you think of Gillespie’s latest.

WALTER BECKER – CIRCUS MONEY – 4* First in 14 years from the other Steely Dan man

U2 – REISSUES – BOY / OCTOBER / WAR – 2*/ 2*/ 3* Passion, and politics: the early years, remastered, with extras

MICAH P HINSON AND THE RED EMPIRE ORCHESTRA
– 4* Select fourth outing from dolorous US twentysomething

BECK – MODERN GUILT – 4* New label, old sound: Danger Mouse helms dreamy psych-pop on his 10th album
