Posted in music | new releases on June 9, 2008

My Morning JacketMy Morning Jacket releases Evil Urges this week. Along with the new disc, the band is reissuing its At Dawn and The Tennessee Fire albums on vinyl this week too.

There are plenty of other worthwhile discs out this week. From what I have already heard, I can definitely recommend cellist-singer-songwriter Ben Sollee's Learning to Bend, along with Haley Bonar's Big Star, the Lexie Mountain Boys' wonderfully inventive Sacred Vacation, Martha Wainwright's I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings, Too, Priscilla Ahn's A Good Day, Sloan's Parallel Play, and Gigantic: A Tribute to Kim Deal.

Among the handful of reissues this week, I will be picking up the two Love discs, False Start and Out Here. Other reissues of note include Husker Du's The Living End and Dinosaur Jr.'s Hand It Over

What new releases have you excited this week? Are there any releases worth adding to the list?

they rock, shut your face

evil urges got a 4.7 on pitchfork??? please disregard that rating.... this album is stellar, every bit as good if not better than people have been saying.

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2008 11:01 PM

Pitchfork's self-importance really hit an all-time high on that MMJ review. Or how about the 2.0/4.0 for Radiohead best-of? Like, OK, I get it's a Capitol cash grab, but if you're so morally-hipster opposed, don't fucking review it.

Can we please stop referring to albums as "discs"? Albums, i.e., cohesive collections of songs, are either "albums" or "records." Yes, "records" obviously refers to a format, one that has been on its last legs for, oh, twenty years now, but it has been the accepted secondary term pretty much since rock n roll began. "Disc" also refers to a format, and one that seems likely to die out even sooner than vinyl. Saying there "are plenty of worthwhile discs this week" is kind of like someone saying in 1974, "Man, can't wait to buy that new Queen 8-Track" or in 1985, "Gee, really looking forward to the new Replacements cassette."

Seriously, records or albums. Not discs.

man those are sweet DISCS!!

ahole, i'll call 'em what ever the fck i fell like.

That Teenage Head record is not a reissue. It's a band new album. That Amazon link is fucked, they totally have the wrong information.

Um...how about Lil Wayne? Probably the most anticipated album of the year. I would say it qualifies as an "interesting" release to say the least. Oh right, largehearted boy doesn't care about black people.

11:00am - just because he doesn't listen to rap much, or list mainstream thug music, doesn't make him racist. it makes you a MORON.

Technically, vinyl records are disks, too.

Can someone explain the difference between the d-i-s-c and the d-i-s-k spellings, please?

Peter Von Poehl did a damn interesting rundown of his fav tracks at the moment on My Secret Playlist. Gives a proper insight into what influences he draws on. The guy's got great taste as well! Here it is - http://www.mysecretplaylist.com/2008/11/peter-von-poehl/
