As usual, Tuesday is new album release day. I’m not explicitly recommending any of these albums, at least not in this space, but simply informing you that these bands are putting out records that you can purchase today via your favorite retailer, online or physical or other. I’ve featured a number of these bands in the weekly Pick Your Poison roundup, and if a name strikes you right and you’d like to hear something from one of these bands, the search function on the right side of the page might be able to help you out in finding an mp3 or song to stream. So new albums this week are out from Alessi’s Ark, Apparat, Big Troubles, Blink 182, Carolina Liar, Dominant Legs, The Duke Spirit, Dum Dum Girls, Gem Club, The Gift, Kasabian, Mark McGuire, Mastodon, Matthew Sweet, Mekons, Pallers, Radiation City, Soley, Twin Sister, Tyler Ramsey, Van Hunt, VHS or Beta, Walls, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Wilco, Youth Lagoon, and Zechs Marquise. Oh, and lest I forget, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy is putting out a new EP and Nirvana’s “Nevermind” gets the Super Deluxe Reissue treatment filled with more extras than you can shake a stick at. That’s just a short list of a much longer one. Happy hunting in what I hope will result in an actual purchase of new music for you this week. For today’s Pick Your Poison, let me offer some actual recommendations as to tracks worth your time. Be sure to have a listen to songs from Autumn Owls, Binary (covering Ministry, no less), Boots Electric, The Immaculates, Moon Bounce, Parentz, Radiation City, and Sunbears.
