New Music Tuesday – January 20th, 2009 Tuesday, January 20, 2009Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat, Your Morning Rock.
Ladies and gentlemen, change has come to the record shops. That’s right, it’s Tuesday and you’ve got more than just hope awaiting you.
Perhaps you recall Mr. Bird’s Armchair Apocrypha placing in the Top Three of our 2007 Your Morning Rock In Review. And now, let us jump to the weekly rundown!
Andrew Bird – Noble Beast
Do you like quirky little pop songs with ukulele, violin and other assorted instrumentation? GOOD NEWS! Andrew Bird is likely right up your alley. Also available is the Noble Beast/Useless Creatures deluxe version with an additional album’s worth of unreleased material.
Bon Iver – Blood Bank
This EP follows up the critically acclaimed For Emma, Forever Ago. The four songs include “Woods” which includes the best usage of an auto-tune program since that last Jerkweezy single dropped last month.
AC Newman – Get Guilty
The head Pornographer finally releases his second solo album and I’m imagining that its very jangly and as catchy as the pneumonia that tens of thousands of people are going to catch outside on the National Mall today. (Why yes, I am staying on my side of the Potomac and not making the 8 mile trek into town. Thank you for asking.)
North Mississippi All-Stars – Do It Like We Used To Do
Two discs worth of the All-Stars best live performances from the last ten years. There’s also a DVD included if you are more of a visual learner. Expect the room to immediately become dirty and “authentic” when you pop this in.
Also today, Merriweather Post Pavillion finally gets a traditional release, Robert Pollard lets out another solo album, the dude from Switchfoot and one of the dudes from Nickel Creek put out a collaboration that, on paper, seems odd to me, and Reel Big Fish somehow continue to exist. See you next Tuesday.
