Two of my favorite albums from 2013 so far get released today. I’m not going to mention which ones specifically, and instead I’m just going to give you a full list of artists and you can make your own assumptions/decisions on what to pick up this week based on that. So then, here’s what artists are releasing new records this week: Austra, Hospital Ships, Kanye West, The Mantles, Midnight Faces, The Mowgli’s, Primal Scream, Quasimoto, Saint Motel, Sigur Ros, Spectrals, Tunng, and Valient Thorr. So yeah, there’s definitely something out there for everyone this week, including, as I mentioned, a couple of key releases. Shouldn’t be too hard to figure out which ones. Should full albums not be your thing, or perhaps just none of this appeals to you, there’s always some single songs via the mp3s below as part of today’s Pick Your Poison. Allow me to recommend cuts from Admirers, A Grave With No Name, Bells Atlas, Emperors, Garrett Kato and Lust for Youth. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream new songs from Deer Tick, DeLooze, Glass Animals, Lolo, Pond and Ski Lodge.
