The following releases will hit the bins Tuesday:
RICHARD HAWLEY, "Lowedges" (XL/Beggars Group). The former Pulp guitarist and crooner extraordinaire promises more heart-wrenching pop atmospherics.
RUSSELL GUNN, "Ethnomusiclogy, Volume Three" (Justin Time). The third in this series from the exceptional trumpeter, who bravely throws hip-hop accents into jazz arrangements and takes on modern-day racist attitudes with both zeal and grace.
ED HARCOURT, "From Every Sphere" (Astralwerks/Capitol). This should be the album that catapults Harcourt to his rightful place alongside such modern British art-poppers as Coldplay and American counterparts Palo Alto.
