Okay, last week new release list was a wasteland, but this week’s collection of new albums will be kicking your wallet’s butt. Just take a look at Largehearted Boy‘s list. Big names are Spoon and Interpol, of course. Can’t get out of the store without those. But what about Nick Drake’s collection of rarities, Family Tree? Or a long time coming but well worth the wait Buffalo Tom release? The Gourds also have a new one. So does new Madonna-faves Gogol Bordello. Despite their recent tragedy, Ra Ra Riot continue on and receive critical acclaim, as does St. Vincent and Fionn Regan. And we haven’t even mentioned local band BOAT, or D.A.N.C.E.-errific Justice! You got some tough choices to make. Hopefully, these mp3’s will help you decide:

Jason Isbell – Brand New Kind Of Actress (MP3)

St. Vincent – Now Now (MP3)

Buffalo Tom – Three Easy Pieces (MP3)

Spoon – The Ghost Of You Lingers (MP3)

Justice – D.A.N.C.E. (MP3)

BOAT – (I’m A) Donkey for Your Love (MP3)

Ulrich Schnauss – Stars (MP3)

(Thanks to Stereogum and Prefix for the assist.)

The Onion’s A.V. Club is streaming Nick Drake’s “Black Mountain Blues”:

You can find MP3’s of Ra Ra Riot around the internet, but the band could use your support. Give this song a listen and buy buy buy it!

The young Irish songwriter Fionn Regan has released his debut The End of History domestically on Lost Highway. Here’s the video to “Put a Penny in the Slot”:
