Have you had a chance to hear the new Arcade Fire single “Reflektor” yet? It technically leaked over the weekend, but the big deal that was supposed to happen on 9/9 at 9pm was basically that song being released and put up for sale at independent record stores around the globe. Exciting stuff, and I would have attempted to purchase one of those 12″ singles had any stores within a 2 hour drive from Chicago carried them. I fail to fully understand how two stores in Wisconsin get it, but zero stores in Chicago (and only one in all of Illinois) do. I guess some retailers are willing to play ball more than others. Anyways, the new Arcade Fire single wasn’t the only new music released this week. It’s Tuesday, so let me run down (as I do every week) the list of artists unleashing some great new product out into the world: The Albertans, Arbouretum, Arctic Monkeys, Ben Rector, Blair Crimmins & The Hookers, Body/Head, The Clash, Emiliana Torrini, Forest Fire, Goldfrapp, Holy Ghost!, Infinity Shred, Jacuzzi Boys, Janelle Monae, Joanna Gruesome, Juliana Hatfield, Kaskade, Man Man, Mark Knopfler, Miniboone, Moving Mountains, Moving Units, Obits, The Orwells, Peelander-Z, Rise Against, The Rubens, Ry Cooder, The Stepkids, Terry Malts, Toy Soldiers, The Weeknd, and Willis Earl Beal. You’ve got to love the fall, when so much great new music is coming out. If any of the albums from the artists I just listed above aren’t going to meet with your approval, perhaps something in Pick Your Poison below will. Allow me to recommend tracks from Ben Miller Band, Dante, Diane Coffee, The Grisly Hand, Hey Geronimo, Meanest Man Contest, The Pedaljets, and Rue Royale. In the Soundcloud section after the jump, stream songs from Active Child, Ducktails, Goldroom, Grails, Toro Y Moi and Upset (Ali from Vivian Girls/Best Coast).
