The Decemberists in March, Willie Nelson gets naked, Capone-N-Noreaga practice self-control, and The White Lies remind me of a band that reminds me of other bands…
The Decemberists, The Hazards of Love (left)
Performing it live, from start to finish, at SXSW this week.
Other Lives, Other Lives
This band will be touring with band above and will also be at SXSW this week.
White Lies, To Lose My Life
Just as a quick reference tool, think of them as the English version of The Killers (although, come to think of it, The Killers were influenced by a bunch of English bands–oh well, you get what I’m tryin’ to say, right?).
Willie Nelson, Naked Willie
Wait, what?! Don’t worry it’s not what you think, it’s 17 vintage tracks recorded the way Willie originally intended them to be done.
The Airborne Toxic Event, The Airborne Toxic Event
Novelist turn songwriter so don’t say squat about his lyrics.
Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Beware
I swear he’s got to be brothers with Les Savy Fav’s Tim Harrington.
Les Claypool, Of Fungi and Foe
Quirky title? Sticky basslines? Twangy vocals? Yep, it’s a Les Claypool album.
Capone-N-Noreaga, Channel 10
Only three cameos on the album–well played.
Gabriella Cilmi, Lessons To Be Learned
Splitting the difference between the Feist/Sarah Borealis set and the Duffy/Adele set.
Gorilla Zoe, Don’t Feed Da Animals
…or tap on da glass.
MSTRKRFT, Fist of God
Officially out in the U.S. today.
