500 miles to memphis - "sunshine in a shot glass"
thurston moore - "trees outside the academy"
i really doubt thurston moore really needs any sort of introduction considering how consistent his band sonic youth has been for over 25 years so i'll go ahead and skip all that. however you may not know that thurston released a new solo album "trees outside the academy" a couple weeks ago on his own label ecstatic peace. this is his first solo work since 1995 and it's basically a stripped down version of sonic youth with more traditional song structures. highly recommended.

iron and wine - "the shepherd's dog"
just got my hands on an advance copy of iron and wine's latest release "the shepherd's dog" and figured i'd write something about it. it's due to come out next tuesday and it features a slightly different sound from sam beam and company. the songs use way more instrumentation than usual and are quite rhythmic and percussion heavy. so far i'm enjoying it and i'm looking forward to letting this expanded sound grow on me. oh and if you pre-order the album from sub pop you'll get a bonus cd with 2 exclusive b-sides on it.

baroness - "the red album"
m83 - "digital shades vol. 1"
two years since his last release, m83 (anthony gonzalez) returns with a new record entitled "digital shades vol. 1". released earlier this month by mute, the album is a collection of ambient pieces that are a slight departure from his normal guitar/synth driven shoegazer sound. in other words, more brian eno and less my bloody valentine. have a listen for yourself.
