New Music Releases For Tuesday 12/4/2012
Some very experimental stuff this week as we head into the December months. But to be expected this time of year is Sufjan Stevens with his latest Christmas album titled Silver and Gold. At this point, I own all of them and can’t say enough how much of the holiday mood they put me in. Expect much more Christmas music next week in our New Releases.
But let’s get into our favorite release this week, Dream Boat. Dream Boat is out with an airy and casual album with lots of the modern appeals. Their album is one of many over the course of the last few years, but Exclipsing will surely have something for you to like.
It wouldn’t be 2012 without Dayve Hawk a/k/a Memory Tapes‘ album Grace/Confusion out today. We featured a ton of Hawk’s remixes back in 2011, so this marks yet another milestone we can celebrate before closing out the year.
Lastly, while we could rant about some unknown bands shown in the list below, we’re excited to announce our year-end lists will be coming out within the next week, which features more unknown bands than we know what to do with! Our ‘best of’ lists will come from all of our writers, and we will give you our own curated list of top 30 albums and top 100 songs for the year. Until then, enjoy what’s left of 2012 below.
