New Music Tuesday – October 7th, 2008 Tuesday, October 7, 2008Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat, Your Morning Rock.
It’s another very good week of new releases (thanks fall release schedule!) and we’ll start it off with everyone’s favorite constantly fueding British siblings…
You’ll feel the shock of the lightning today, but what else doth the day bring?
Oasis – Dig Out Your Soul
The reviews have been perfectly mediocre thus far, but the Oasis-heads seem pleased with the record and that’s really all that matters at this stage in their career, no? If they’re coming to your town, you should check out the upcoming dates for Oasis with special guest, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals. (Cadinology – coming soon!)
Bob Dylan – Tell Tale Signs
Two discs of b-sides and rarities from Dylan from the past twenty years. Probably still better song writing than most everything else that’s come around in the past twenty years.
Sarah McLachlan – Closer: The Best Of
The Canadian songstress gives you 24 of her best known songs as well as 2 new ones. This totally makes me a lesbian, but I’ve dug Sarah since I first heard “Possession” as a teenager in the mid-90s.
Pretenders – Break Up The Concrete
The only original Pretender left is Chrissie Hynde, but that’s the only one that counts. Plus, “Boots of Chinese Plastic” is one of my favorite song titles of the year.
Rachel Yamagata – Elephants… Teeth Sinking Into Heart
Two discs (although only 14 songs) that each present a different style (one a little more intimate, one a little more rockin) make up this long-awaited follow-up from the talented Ms. Yamagata.
Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos – Animal and Not Animal
Not one but two major label debuts from this excellent Indiana band. If you haven’t heard their last album, The Dust of Retreat, you are denying yourself one of the finest unknown albums of the past decade. These two new releases are both streaming on the band’s Myspace page and are awaiting your approval.
Also new releases from Aqualung, Deerhoof, Lambchop, The Streets, Senses Fail, Antony and the Johnsons, Rise Against, and more. Enjoy the fall kids – it’s a good time to be a music lover.
