New Music Releases for Tuesday 10/2/2012

New Music Releases for Tuesday 10/2/2012

Every artist that didn’t release in September seems to be on this week’s list as it’s chock full of mainstream and small bar artists.  Get your Post-It Notes ready…

Lightning, the newest from Matt & Kim arrives today.  ”Let’s Go” already has tabs as being a track we’ll hate in a few months if we listen to mainstream radio, but we’ll always be happy to hear more from the upbeat, youthful lyrics of Matt Johnson, and this album is no exception.

Hammock (above) find themselves at the complete opposite end of the genre world, as Marc Byrd and Andrew Thompson cater to an ambient, guitar based sound.  Think the spacing of Sigur Ros, with an even slower tempo.  Departure Songs, much like their previous works, should be a satisfying hammock-worthy album.

On the Radiohead side of things, Ultraista features Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich along with drummer Joey Waronker (Beck, Atoms for Peace) and Laura Bettinson (Femme).  Strangely enough, Eraas carries distorted Thom Yorke-like lyrics in their track below, yet the band heads in a more post-punk rock somberness.

Other groups we have yet to fully dig into the new albums of, which we plan to include: The Vaccines, California Wives, Sun Airway and Dark Dark Dark.  Enjoy the week in music!
