New Release Update

Here’s What’s Hitting The Shelves This Week

aAsobi Seksu ->
Polyvinyl ->

NYC’s favorite Japanese-shoegaze duo Asobi Seksu brings us an interesting re-record of past matieral on Rewolf, one of the last albums recorded at the infamous Olympic Studios (See: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, etc). Expect mostly acoustic re-interpretations of your favorite Seksu tracks, such as “Thursday” from 2006’s Citrus, streaming below. (Side Note: Asobi Seksu means “casual sex” in Japanese. Naughty!) [I’d like to buy that, thank you]

Belly of the Lion
Western Vinyl ->

Belly of the Lion is the second LP release from Austin’s Ola Podrida.  Headed by talented film score composer David Wingo, Ola Podrirda falls into the now very well established folk format along with favorites like Bon Iver and Iron & Wine – but don’t allow his soft lyrics and acoustic rhythms to be merely grouped with his contemporaries and overlooked. Wingo stands on his own, with poetic lyrics and a Texan perspective to boot. Check out “Your Father’s Basement” and “Roomful of Sparrows” – available below. [I’d like to buy that, thank you]

MP3: Roomful of Sparrows

Received Pronunciation
Slumberland Records ->

Nothing says “we make fun music” like an exclamation point glued to the end of your band name, and Boston-based trio Pants Yell! is no exception. We find Pants Yell! five albums into their career with Recieved Pronunciation, and they’re doing what they do best – plain and simple, catchy, clangy indie-pop.  It may not be their best, or most challenging album, but it’s enough to get me going – and it seems to be their last. At least, that’s what they’re claiming for now. Album single “Cold Hands” is below. [I’d like to buy that, thank you]
