New Release Update

Yeasayer – Odd Blood
Secretly Canadian / buy!

Odd Blood is the second studio album from Brooklyn’s experimental rockers Yeasayer. Fans haven’t seen a new LP from the group since 2007’s All Hour Cymbals, which received a slew of positive attention from all the “right” places. First single “Ambling Alp” was released by the band in late October.

Hot Chip – One Life Stand
Astralwerks / buy!

One Life Stand is the fourth studio album from London-based synth-pop quintet Hot Chip. The album has been held in pretty high anticipation after the success of 2008’s Made In The Dark, and is promised to sound more or less from the same vein.

Angelo Spencer – Et Les Hauts Sommets
K Recs / buy

If you aren’t quite sure why you recognize the name Angelo Spencer let me try and help – he is Kimya Dawson’s French Alp-born husband, who has opened for or been at any Kimya show you might have caught (especially during that wonderful Juno phase. Well, Angelo is more than capable of standing alone on his own two feet – which is obvious upon first listen to Et Les Hauts Sommets (translation: At The High Peaks), an instrumental piece you’ll be happy fell into your lap this month.

New Release Update – January 18

Spoon – Transference

Merge Records / buy!

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like Austin-based, Britt Daniel backed Spoon. Music lovers tend to come from one of two viewpoints on the foursome – they either absolutely love them or are luke-warmly interested. Either way, I have a feeling their 7th release, Transference, is going to be a crowd-pleaser.
MP3: Spoon – “Written In Reverse ”

Surfer Blood – Afro Coast

Kanine / buy!

Every year there is a bucket full of over-hyped, Pitchfork-approved, blogged-to-death groups that put out a few good singles and one mediocre album. Surfer Blood seemed to be a good candidate for this category, but after hearing their debut Afro Coast , I have to say – this time the hypers got it right. These Palm Beach, 90’s throwback rockers are worth listening to.
MP3: Surfer Blood – “Swim”

Eels – End Times

Vagrant / buy!

When it comes to Eels, you pretty much know what you’re going to get. E has his scratchy, melancholy vocals and minimal guitar/piano/drum sound set in stone, so you’ll either like it or you won’t. The four track recording sounds bare and personal, and that’s because it is – one listen to the lyrics will have you uncomfortably involved in E’s loneliness and misery… just the way you like it.
MP3: Eels – “Little Bird”

Also Out This Week:
Blockhead – The Music Scene
Cold War Kids – Behave Yourself EP
Dinowalrus – %
Editors – In This Light And On This Evening

News Briefs

Pre-Order Allison Weiss’s New Album + MP3’s + Tour
Allison Weiss
We here at DustSleeve happen to think Athens, GA’s Allison Weiss is pretty fantastic. Not only is she cute, a master of social media, as D.I.Y as they come, and a pretty serious pancake fan, she also happens to be really, really talented. November 24th marks the release of her first full-length LP (though sixth release), and you can expect nothing less than her signature quirk-pop appeal in a clean, catchy, hope-filled collection worth keeping on repeat over this holiday season. If you can’t wait to get your hands on the disk, you have TWO DAYS to pre-order …Was Right All Along and get a ton of goodies as your reward! For now you can hear two MP3’s from the album, and check the tour section at the bottom of the post for the first string of upcoming dates.

Rad!


King Khan & BBQ Arrested + Blame Manager + Enjoy Shroomin’
If there’s one thing you don’t want to do in Oak Grove, Kentucky, it’s get caught with some far out shroomage. Our friends King Khan & BBQ had to learn it the hard way last week when Arish and Kristin got held up in the slammer for possession of illegal mushrooms. Although the blame was tried to put off on their manager/chaperone, the Christian County (yikes) Jail set the record straight. A few shows were cancelled and fans are left mostly un-surprised.
