Anticipated albums include Okkervil River’s Stage Names, Marissa Nadler’s Songs III: Bird on the Water, an EP by comedic musical duo Flight of the Conchords, and a box set of four different recording sessions by Magnolia Electric Co.

As always, Largehearted Boy has the list, so get out there and support independent labels. Here a few songs to sample:

Art in Manila – Set the Woods on Fire (MP3)The Brunettes – Small Town Crew (MP3)Magnolia Electric Co. – Lonesome Valley (MP3)Marissa Nadler – Diamond Heart (MP3)Mirah and Spectratone International – Credo Cigalia (MP3)

Okkervil River – Our Life Is Not A Movie Or Maybe (MP3)

One of the funniest shows to hit cable television, Flight of the Conchords, features the comedic duo from New Zealand of Bret McKenzie “on axe and vox” and Jemaine Clement “on gat and vocals.” Local label Sub Pop has just released an EP of their parodic songs.
