Pick Your Poison: Tuesday 8-14-12
It’s a surprisingly quiet week for new album releases, and in fact I think the last few weeks have been. With Animal Collective and Grizzly Bear both coming up quite soon though, don’t expect this lull to last very long. For now though, here’s your weekly listing of artists that have new material out this week. Look for stuff from Asteroid Shop, Blur, Corb Lund, Dead Can Dance, Denver, Dignan Porch, Shoes and Why?. There’s also the double disc collection of Fleetwood Mac covers that features a great list of contributing artists including Best Coast, Antony Hegarty, Washed Out, Tame Impala, The Kills, MGMT, St. Vincent and Lykke Li. I won’t speak to the direct worth of any of those records, but if you see something you like, by all means check it out. Also check out today’s Pick Your Poison, which has some stuff I will recommend. Specifically look out for tracks from Amanda Palmer, Dog Bite, Feature Cuts, The Helio Sequence, Leftover Cuties, Lord Huron and Warning Light. In the Soundcloud section please enjoy streaming a new Ty Segall track.
