Out This Week 5/20

Looking for something to do on a slow Tuesday afternoon? Why not head down to your local record shop where you can pick up the new album El Rey from The Wedding Present? The Leeds band is back, having recording once again with Steve Albini, and is continuing to prove that their near-decade long hiatus in the mid-90’s was just a fluke. That alone should have you running to the record shops. But wait… there’s more! This week you also get two Mudhoney albums, one new one old and remastered, plus new releases from Islands, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, French Kicks, Mates of State, Joan of Arc, and Orchestra Baobab. Still not convinced? How about Velvet Underground vinyl reissues? Or interesting new side projects, like The Foxboro Hot Tubs (Green Day in another guise) or El Madmo (Norah Jones’ punk band) or Free Kitten (Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon with Pussy Galore’s Julie Cafritz)? How about an album of Tom Waits covers from Scarlett Johansson? She’s hot, right? Grab a sheet from Largehearted Boy’s list and get out there!
