New album release Tuesday, my friends. As we climb ever closer to the end of the year, the number of new albums gets thinner, while the number of greatest hits, deluxe editions and compilations gets much larger. We’re not quite there just yet though, so keep hanging on to some normalcy while there’s still time. This week sees new records from 13Ghosts, Al Tuck, And So I Watch You From Afar, Atlas Sound, Band of Bees, Built Like Alaska, Cass McCombs, David Lynch, Joker, King Midas Sound, Marissa Nadler, Noel Gallagher, Summer Camp and Treefight for Sunlight. In the EP department, there’s new short releases from Esben and the Witch, Kurt Vile and Modeselektor with Thom Yorke. Purely from a Pick Your Poison standpoint, today’s got a healthy number of good songs. I can give a thumbs up to tracks from Black Heart Procession, Canon Logic (covering Cinderella), Fall Fox, JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound (Chicago’s own), Keepaway, The Mountain Goats, The New Slave, Red Eye Fugu, and Balam Acab’s remix of Twin Sister. If you like reggae versions of Nirvana songs (who doesn’t, right?) Little Roy’s version of “Lithium” is for you.
