___________New Releases 9.20.2011

Ben Rector _ Something Like This

Sappy pop from Nashville singer/songwriter.

Boots Electric _ Honkey Kong

Eagles of Death Metal co-founder and QOTSA member plays hard-rocking electro. Not to be mistaken for The Apathy album of the same name.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah _ Hysterical

BK/Philly indie rockers have seen a steady decrease in the quality of their records since their self-released 2005 debut.

Ed Sheeran _ +

British youngster already has a massive hit off this record across the pond with his playful folk/pop.

Emily O'Halloran _ Morphine & Cupcakes

Raspy voiced singer plays stylish, smokey alt/country.

Gavin Degraw _ Sweeter

We suspect the person who beat him up recently on the Lower East Side may have heard this album. Not that beating people up is okay, but this music is absolutely horrible.

Ivy _ All Hours

Fun, funky pop set from NYC trio on their first record in six years. See "Fascinated," "Suspicious," "World Without You."

Jayhawks _ Mockingbird Time

Minnesota indie stalwarts show off great songwriting on their 8th studio album. See "She Walks In So Many Ways."

Jens Lekman _ An Argument With Myself

Fun Swedish guitar/electropop. May be too adventurous for the American ear.

Katie Herzig _ The Waking Sleep

Adventurous pop on this sophomore effort from critically acclaimed Nashville singer/songwriter.

Leslie West _ Unusual Suspects

Longtime American guitarist shows off fat tone, quick fingers for a big guy.

**Lisa Hannigan _ Passenger

Irish songbird charms with her unique brand of infectious, intimate pop. RIYL Feist.

**Megafaun _ Megafaun

Avant-garde NC rockers spew huge waves of atmospheric indie.

Miguel Migs _ Outside the Skyline

Forward thinking, soul-influenced dance music from CA dj.

Never Shout Never _ Time Travel

Confused post-emo act from Joplin, MI are at their best playing pop.

Opeth _ Heritage

Swedish progressive heavy metal act appeal to a very specific audience.

Pat MethenyRichmond Fontaine _ The High Country

Moody Portland alt/country

Superheavy _ Superheavy

Surprisingly decent superstar group featuring Mick Jagger, Joss Stone, Dave Stewart, Damian Marley and A.R. Rahman.

Thrice _ Major/Minor

Naturally we love The Illusion of Safety and had high hopes for this that were crushed in the first song and repeatedly defecated on track after lame track.

Tony Bennett _ Duets II

Legendary American crooner shares the stage with some big names.

Tori Amos _ Night of Hunters

The queen of angst is all grown up.

Veronica Falls _ Veronica Falls

Overrated dreary indie via the UK.

Will Dailey & The Rivals _ Will Dailey

Nauseatingly sappy pop from Boston golden boy. If you're tempted to get this, get Ed Sheeran's record instead.

Z-Ro _ Meth

Underrated Houston rapper rhymes about drugs but his melodic flow gives tired material a fresh sound.

**recommended
