As I like to do most Tuesdays, here’s a list of some significant music releases this week, available at your local independent music retailer or online if you prefer. If it suits your fancy, there’s new stuff out there from Ashtar Command, The Beets, Bjork with Dirty Projectors, The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble, A Classic Education, Coldplay, Comet Gain, Deer Tick, Gospel Music, Jedi Mind Tricks, John Prine, Justice, Mark Sultan, Mr. Gnome, Phantogram, Russian Circles, Spectrals, The Strange Boys, Surfer Blood, Tom Waits, Wet Illustrated and Woodsman. If you’re really itching to get your holidays started early, there are Christmas albums out this week from Stone Temple Pilots’ Scott Weiland and the Zooey Deschanel/M. Ward project She & Him. That out of the way, let’s talk about what’s directly in front of us: a fresh edition of Pick Your Poison. Today I’ll recommend tracks from Andy Steele, Loves It, The Migrant, Miracles of Modern Science, Night Shining, Robert Deeble, and Shirk Circus. In the Soundcloud section, you can hear a great track from Dolfish and a b-side/cover from Yuck off the deluxe reissue of their debut album. Oh, and happy birthday to me.
