Whew, what a day for new releases! Bat For Lashes drops her sophomore album, Neil Young rocks out, The Thermals get a new drummer and record label, Bob Mould shows some impressive productivity, the “big midget” leaves Def Jam in the dust, and The Veils get inspiration from the Sooner State:
Bat For Lashes, Two Suns (left)
Just like in Star Wars!
The Thermals, Now We Can See
The perfect blend of punk and indie-rock.
Bob Mould, Life And Times
Two full length albums in two years–you go Bob Mould!
Neil Young, Fork In The Road
He chose the side of the fork that rocked!
The Veils, Sun Gangs
Used The Flaming Lips’ garage to make demos for this album (would’ve loved to have been a fly on the wall while that was happening).
It Hugs Back, Inside Your Guitar
Catchy little UK band. Pesin sisters, what do you think?
Doves, Kingdom of Rust
Wonder if this is in reference to the four-year span between full-length albums?
The Felice Brothers, Yonder Is The Clock
If you like a little twang with your indie rock…
Lady Sovereign, Jigsaw
The self proclaimed “big midget” leaves the land of major record labels behind and drops new album on her own Midget Records.
The Tragically Hip, We Are The Same
In Canada–where The Tracially Hip are national treasures–people are probably taking off work today to celebrate the band’s latest release.
Gliss, Devotion Implosion
If you dig that fuzzed-out, murky, reverb-drenched kind of indie-rock.
Crystal Antlers, Tentacles
Former chimney-sweeps channel their inner 60’s rocker.
Vs. Children, Casiotone For The Painfully Alone
Best album title of the week.
Eulogies, Here Anonymous
Classify under “cereb-rock.”
This is the album where we find out if Mims is more than just “hot.”
