Welcome to November. It’s not quite as classy or nice as Rocktober, but it’s got Thanksgiving going for it, which is nice. Tuesdays I like to give a quick roundup of some of the new records available for you to pick up should the whim strike you, so here’s that. There’s new material in both digital and physical stores from The Beach Boys, Caroline Smith, Florence and the Machine, Jupe Jupe, The Loom, Lou Reed and Metallica, Rich Aucoin, Robin Bacior, and U2, who are unleashing a super deluxe remastered version of their classic “Achtung Baby”. Additionally there are new EPs out from AM & Shawn Lee, along with The Decemberists and The Soft Moon. I’m not going to speak to the worth of these releases, but if you’re an avid reader of the site then hopefully you’ll take to heart some of my album reviews. Going straight to today’s Pick Your Poison, I will throw a few recommendations your way. Check out songs from The Ambassadors, Det Vacka Livet, DEVO, Erothug, and Ladytron’s remix of Sonoio. While it’s by no means amazing, Snow Patrol’s cover of U2’s “Mysterious Ways” is worth a listen in the Soundcloud section.
