New Album Releases for Tuesday 10/16/2012
Pinback returns this week from that spot from where they were – solo projects, breaking in new artists, music musing and the sort – and their new album Information Retrieved lands at the top of our must-listen-to albums. Don’t get lost there though as this week provides tons of other wonderful artists/bands to check out.
Ben Gibbard, the voice of Death Cab for Cutie, has his album Former Lives out. While on our music bucket list, we encourage early buying of tickets for his tour as they do go fast. His tour dates can be found here.
From Jared Followill (Kings of Leon) and Nick Brown (Mona) combined to form Smoke & Jackal, which received backing from RCA for the release of their EP No. 1. The entire EP can be streamed on their website.
Great Caesar bring some chamber rock/ska to the list this week with Tunes to Break. The six-piece group from Brooklyn comes across as a jam band, but we’re pretty impressed with the lyrics and timing involved as it has an almost nonchalant charm strikes fast and smoothly with horns leading the way.
From the experimental mind of Caribou’s Dan Snaith comes his new project Daphni. Strange, yet alarmingly familiar. The entire album can be streamed on Soundcloud.
Lastly, other solo artists we suggest delving deeping into include Ken Stringfellow and Martha Wainwright. Enjoy the week in music!
