Out This Week 6/3

If you haven’t noticed, the 2008 Summer Membership Drive is going on right now at KEXP. After you pledge your support to independent radio, be sure to also support independent artists and record stores. Among the artists releasing new albums this week (check Largehearted Boy’s list for the full run-down) are true DIY-ers Robert Pollard & The Futureheads, who are both putting out their latest on their own labels. Also worth picking up are the new ones from The Ting Tings, Ladytron, Fleet Foxes, The Cool Kids, The Pinker Tones, The Virgins, Aimee Mann, and Baskervilles — all regulars on KEXP. And did you know that Weezer has another self-titled album? Blue, green, now red. Yellow, you’re next! Alright, everybody — get out out there!
