I hope you all had a nice long weekend (that is, of course, assuming your employer/school considered yesterday a holiday) and that you’re all ready to get back to business today. We’ve got a relatively slow week staring us down on the release front, highlighted by Him (of She and Him).
M.Ward hits lead-off for us this week, and the rest of the gang awaits you after the jump.
M.Ward – Hold Time
Ward returns to the world of solo work, leaving the lovely Ms. Deschanel behind to Ben Gibbard’s greasy hands, and gives us another pretty little album. It’s been streaming online at various outlets over the past month or so and it’ll be well worth your eMusic downloads or your actual cash money.
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit – Self-Titled
The former Drive-by Trucker provides us with his second solo work today. If it’s half as good as the first one, we’ll be in business.
Robyn Hitchcock – Goodnight Oslo
Can you go wrong with a power-pop legend?
Morrissey – Years of Refusal
And is it wrong that I’ve never cared that much for Morrissey considering the influence that he and The Smiths have had on a lot of the music that I enjoy? Perhaps if I was a young gay Mexican, things would be different.
Sam Roberts – Love At The End of the World
Ever hear “Brother Down”? Great song. In fact, We Were Born In A Flame was pretty solid all around. Huzzah for those crazy roots-rocking Canucks.
So, there you have it. Another week and another five albums worth your time. Lets discuss in the comments.
