Light is the ideal follow up to Vanessa Benelli Mosells debut album on Decca, [R]evolution. This new album includes music by Alexander Scriabin as well as by her mentor, Karlheinz Stockhausen, thus putting together two composers both considered visionaries in their respective different historical periods.

Fourteenth and self-declared final studio album from Michael Gira and co. finally arrives in a heat haze of intensity and durational power. Swans have never done small. The Glowing Man clocks in at a vinyl bothering two hours, and not a note is wasted. Songs range from primordial rants through the netherworld, threatening Gothic blues (underpinned by that familiar Gira growl), epic 20minute+ slabs of alt-rock, sunset orange psychedelia, and a beautifully violent a reimagining of Sonic Youth’s ‘The World Looks Red’. This is Swans at their very best; a provocative trip into this most singular of bands. If this is to be the last album under this lineup, it is a fitting send-off.

If ever there were a record that both fit perfectly and stood outside the CTI Records’ stable sound, it is Sugar by Stanley Turrentine. Recorded in 1970, only three tracks appear on the original album (on the reissue there’s a bonus live version of the title track, which nearly outshines the original and is 50 percent longer). Turrentine, a veteran of the soul-jazz scene since the ’50s, was accompanied by a who’s who of groove players, including guitarist George Benson, Lonnie Liston Smith on electric piano, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, bassist Ron Carter, organist Butch Cornell, and drummer Billy Kaye, among others.
