If you spent your Monday celebrating Labor Day like I did, I hope you had a great time. As we’ve now hit Tuesday and it’s no longer a holiday, let’s get back to business as usual. It certainly is business as usual for new music releases this week. Lots of great stuff coming out from Animal Collective, Azure Ray, Bob Mould, California Wives, Cat Power, Cult of Youth, Dave Stewart, Deerhoof, The Fresh and Onlys, Holy Other, Ian Hunter, Imagine Dragons, Jens Lekman, Lovedrug, Mono, Mount Eerie, The Music Tapes, Raymond Byron & The White Freighter (see below for an mp3 from them!), The Sheepdogs, Sondre Lerche, Stars, Two Door Cinema Club, Two Gallants and Young Guns. Wow. Check any or all of those out if you’re looking to explore some new music. Another way to explore new music is via Pick Your Poison. Today’s load of downloads includes ones from The Bergamot, Gilded, Jason Collett, Maria Minerva, Martin Eden (aka Eluvium), and Slam Donahue. Fort Romeau’s remix of Frankie Rose is worth a download too. In the Soundcloud section don’t miss streaming songs from Generationals and The Shilohs.
