Looking ahead, January-February 2019

[Jeremy Denk - c.1300-c.2000]

The site will take its usual January break starting next week, so this entry is my last chance to point out some upcoming releases.

Jeremy Denk, c.1300-c.2000, Feb. 8

I’ll be seeing Jeremy Denk in concert in a few weeks, but he won’t be performing the sprawling program of this two-disc set spanning seven centuries of music.

Vinyl

Mindy Smith, One Moment More, Jan. 29

Mindy Smith is so far the only country music singer whose voice reminds me of Harriet Wheeler of the Sundays.

Prince, Musicology, Feb. 8
Prince, 3121, Feb. 8

Musicology was heralded as a return to form, but I found it less interesting than 3121. But even 3121 was less interesting than The Gold Experience, which I would consider getting on vinyl. But really, when is the Love Symbol album getting reissued?
