Out This Week 5/6

Hopefully, while everybody’s waiting for DCFC’s Narrow Stairs to tumble down, they won’t miss all the terrific indie albums released this week from the likes of Tim Fite, Laura Gibson, No Age, The Republic Tigers, Shy Child, Matmos, The Long Blondes, Lykke Li, The Morning Benders, Elvis Costello, and so many others! (Check out Largehearted Boy’s list for the dizzying array.)

One of the most exciting releases this week has to be Firewaters’ The Golden Hour, the first album from Tod A. after a three year sabbatical through the Middle East, the Indian Subcontinent, and South East Asia, from which he brought back sound snippets, samples, and even musicians to create a dark, sultry, belligerent album — certainly his best yet!
