New Release Update

Here’s What’s Hitting The Shelves This Week

Ad Explorata
1320 Records->

Sound Tribe Sector Nine (or STS9 to their best of friends) is an instrumental “post-rock dance” 5-piece that’s been around since 1998. Ad Explorata is their 6th studio release on their self-run label, 1320 records. If you like their multi-sound infusion, be sure to check out one of their many side projects. In the meantime, stream “Oil and Water” below. [I’ll buy that!]
MP3: STS9 – “Oil & Water”

The King of Rocksprings->
The Milkman Vs. The Postman Problem

The Milkman Vs. The Postman Problem is the debut EP from Brooklyn artist and musician Scott Sosebee. Sosbee has drummed for bands all across the board, including (most notably) Athens, GA’s Little Red Rocket. After relocating to New York and getting in a pretty serious trapeze accident, Sosbee decided it was time to release some solo work. Sample “The Perfect Guy”, opening track from The Milkman VS. The Postman Problem, self-released tomorrow. [I’ll buy that!]
MP3: The King Of Rocksprings – “The Perfect Guy”

Yuuki Matthews ->
Music For Savage Imagery
Asthmatic Kitty ->

It’s pretty rare that Sufjan Stevens backed Asthmatic Kitty Records puts out an album that I’m not a fan of, which is why I’m not surprised to be digging the debut release from Yuuki Matthews. Music For Savage Imagery is a part of Asthmatic Kitty’s “Library Catalogue Music”, a collection of instrumental albums being released by the label. Seattle-based Matthews released this album in hopes that it may be used as the background of movies or digital projects in the future. Check out track “Conquerors”, below. [I’ll buy that!]
MP3: Yuuki Matthews – “Conquerors”

Also Out This Week
30 Seconds to Mars – This Is War
Abbo Abbas – Abbo Abbas
Lowell Brams – Songs For Insomnia
M. Bison – M. Bison
Roberto Carlos Lange – Music For Memory

islandsMust See (NC): There are a few great shows at the Local 506 this week, but the one you can’t miss happens on Thursday the 24th with the appearance of Montreal royalty, Islands.  Coming off the heels of the release date (tomorrow) of their new album “Vapours” these indie darlings should put on a good night of Canadian music. Show’s at 9, $10 at the door ($8 for non-procrastinators) and DC’s Chain and the Gang open.
sufjanMust See (CLE): If you were lucky enough to snag the quickly sold out tickets, then you already know where you’ll be this Thursday. Sufjan Stevens plays an intimate show at the Beachland Ballroom, which may include music from his new concept piece “The BQE” or some tracks off earlier albums. Either way, it’ll be gorgeous!
wwwb706144_largeMust Hear: September has been bringing out a long list of releases, and this week is no different. Who you need to hear? Some may say it’s Bon Iver‘s new project Volcano Choir, or the Oberst/James/Mogis/Ward collab. Monsters of Folk. Personally, I think you can’t live without grabbing a copy of the new Sea Wolf album “White Water, White Bloom” (but you might as well buy all three).

Album Releases:

Afternoon Naps – Parade
Basement Jaxx – Scars
Banco De Gala – Memories Dreams Reflections
The Big Pink – A Brief History of Love
(many, many more after the jump) Continue reading
