Posted in music | new releases on August 27, 2007

LiarsTwo albums I can enthusiastically recommend this week are the self-titled fourth album by Liars and Super Furry Animals' Hey Venus!. Other recommended albums include Pseudosix's self-titled disc and Aesop Rock's None Shall Pass (which features the Mountain Goats' John Darnielle on one track).

Notable reissues this week include a remastered edition of Second Coming by the Dickies, and a reissue of the long out of print Modern Lovers self-titled album.

Have I left anything noteworthy off the list? What new music releases can you recommend this week? What should I avoid?

The SFA is only available as vinyl or digital at this point (the domestic cd comes out in October)

The Jamie T is good, as is NYPC.

Liars album is cool. Drum's definitely got a better flow to it, but the new one is a big sonic leap.

I swear I'm not a street team member pretending not to be a street team member...

On AOL Music's "Full CD Listening Parties" this week, one of the albums available is "East Side Story" by one Emily King. The in-a-nutshell description of her they give says, "This 22-year-old New York native cites the Beatles, Nas, Sarah Vaughan, Radiohead and Michael Jackson as influences." I listened to about half the album. It sounded like straight-up modern R&B; I didn't hear a Beatles influence, much less Radiohead.

Anyone know anything about her? I'm guessing that since she's got an album out on J Records at the age of 22, there must've been some buzz about her by now.
