Scott Sorry’s post-Wildhearts band Sorry & the Sinatras released a new EP at the first of the month called Kings of Shambles Street. It contains the track “Valencia,” which also appeared on a diabetes fundraising compilation called Heavy Hearts, featuring rare or previously unreleased tracks from a roster of artists that includes The Wildhearts, Michael Monroe, Eureka Machines, Brijitte West, and Jesse Malin. If you visit the Heavy Hearts Bandcamp site hoping to grab the album, you may be out of luck. It looks like it was only being sold for a limited-time. Oh well, at least you can still stream the tracks.
Kings of Shambles Street is definitely still available, and stylistically it doesn’t stray too far from “Valencia” or from the song “Hated Heart” from a couple of years ago, and it includes what sounds like a decent cover of the ‘Mats’ “Bastards of Young.” If Sorry’s gravelly vocals don’t rub you too raw, it might be worth checking out.
