Pick Your Poison: Tuesday 8-21-12
This week is a relatively high profile week for new music releases, especially compared to the last couple weeks. Be on the lookout for new stuff from Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Bailterspace, Bill Fay, Bloc Party, Call of the Wild, Careful, Cate Le Bon, Carol Kleyn, Chris McFarland, The Darkness, Dots Will Echo, Dylan LeBlanc, The Heavy, The Kinks, Lee Hazlewood, Owl City, Reverend Horton Heat, Ry Cooder, Six Organs of Admittance, Teengirl Fantasy, Van She and Yeasayer. In case you missed them, I’ve already reviewed the new albums from Bloc Party and Yeasayer in case you’d like to learn more about either one of those. As for today’s Pick Your Poison, let me give you some guidance on what is a pretty strong set of downloads. Don’t miss tracks from AC Newman, Baby Baby, Hero Jr., The Reflections, Robert Pollard, Schoolboy Q and Woodsman. Also, if you’re intrigued by the Stükenberg mp3 below, you may be interested to know that they’ll be playing a show in Chicago on Sept. 15th at Ultra Lounge with Popular Tongues, Kelroy and Viaducts. You can buy tickets ($8) for that show here. In the Soundcloud section you can stream new gems from AlunaGeorge, Mount Eerie, and Weekend.
