Do you still buy records/compact discs/mini-discs/cassingles? Or do you seek out “alternate media sources” due to “space constraints” and/or a “bitch ass economy”? Well, whatever. Here are some of the more note-worthy releases coming to a “retail store”/”online outlet” near you:
Broadcast and the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age (Warp)
A collaborative mini-album sure to go well with yr herbal supplements.
The Flaming Lips Embryonic (Warner Bros.)
Some fratastic mellows are certain to be harshed by The Lips’ shift back to their more noisy, experimental side. For the rest of us, we shall rejoice that one of America’s greatest musical treasures is freaky again. Don’t worry, dudes, I’m sure there will still be room for the confetti.
Lightning Bolt Earthly Delights (Load)
It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since these noise barons released their last full-length blitzkrieg. Put on yr Mexican wrestling mask and put ear plugs in yr pussy (cat). It’s about to get loud.
Neon Indian Psychic Chasms (Lefse)
(*Note: This is a fan-made video)
If you aren’t psyched about this, then your bulb has already burnt out. Get to the old people’s home, McCain!
Small Black Small Black (CassClub)
The kids have created this brand new genre called “lo-fi”. Don’t tell Lou Barlow or he might go back in time and destroy all of his Sebadoh cassettes. But get this: sometimes the kids are alright.
Godflesh Pure/Cold World (Earache)
After Napalm Death but before Jesu, Justin Broadrick was the leader of this pack of equally noisy miserablists. They ripped skin off of faces and put them on other confused faces. Then they punched those faces until they cried.
The Raincoats The Raincoats (KillRockStars)
In 1979, The Raincoats released their debut album. It was a post-punk classic. It’s being reissued on vinyl. Get. It. Now.
