Another Tuesday, another hopelessly long list of amazing new releases. As we roll deeper into the warming glow of Spring, there seems to be an increasingly overwhelming pile of must-hear albums, and today’s batch is particularly impressive. First of all, our new Album of the Week (which you can see above in orange vinyl) is now out. As well as last week’s Album of the Week, the amazing debut album by Montreal’s Ought. Plus records by Damon Albarn, The Pixies and so many others that you really should check out. Here’s what’s out today in your local shop, or at Insound.

Damon Albarn – Everyday Robots
Fennesz – Becs
Floor – Oblation
Fu Manchu – Gigantoid
Howlin Rain – Live Rain
Maria Minerva – Histrionic
Old 97s – Most Messed Up
Ought – More Than Any Other Day

    Hell yes! Great heading, excellent message.

    Also, you have a damn good ear for music, and your featured artists are all top notch. It seems we come from similar stock.

    I went to college and got a bachelors degree in journalism right around the time the profession became a mere hobby, due to the deluge of people who suddenly fancied themselves to be writers/photographers/publishers.

    I had to return to school in my mid 20’s and get a bachelor’s in a more promising and profitable field (chose psychology, loved it, should have gone to graduate school… Didn’t. I will if it’s ever possible) and now I work in an office and, ironically, WRITE away my nights and free days. Without pay. Hah!

    I am just starting to throw together some tumblr and wordpress sites, devoted strictly to music, record collecting, and perfecting my unique blend of snarky anti-snark writing and editorializing.

    You should check it out. It’s not extremely popular, but Perfect Pussy did write me an encouraging and gracious email after reading my gushingly complimentary review of their self titled album. That was a nice moment.

    Cheers, and feel free to contact me via tumblr or email. I would like to hear what you think about my fledgling blog, and my scatterbrained content.

    Best wishes.
