As I try to do on Tuesdays, given that it is new album release day, allow me to tell you about some notable artists that are putting out new records today. Again, this is just a selection of artists, and I’m not pointing you in one direction or the other in terms of what’s good and what’s bad among these. If you’re not visiting via the main page though, I’ll tell you that so far this week I’ve given one band an extremely positive review, and another band a very so-so review. Check both those out if you’ve not yet done so. But here’s the rather long list of artists releasing new records today: Barn Owl, Blind Pilot, Blitzen Trapper, CANT (Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor), The Drums, Girls, Grouplove, Holiday Shores, Jenn Mierau, Kathryn Calder, The Kooks, Ladytron, Mates of State, Memoryhouse, Mogwai, Neon Indian, Pajama Club, St. Vincent, Toro y Moi, Wild Flag and Wooden Shjips. If you can’t find something to love amidst all those artists, there’s something wrong with your ears. Speaking specifically to today’s edition of Pick Your Poison, I can say nice things about tracks from Big Troubles, Blackout Beach, The Bloody Hollies, Brown Bird, Class Actress, Girl In A Coma, Loney Dear, Luke Temple (of Here We Go Magic), The Morning Clouds and Pterodactyl. In other words, lots to recommend song-wise in this collection too.
