Out This Week 6/17

During a recent KEXP in-studio, Guy Garvey of Elbow touted fellow UK songwriter Adem’s song “Love and Other Planets” as one of his recent favorites. Now, Adem is releasing Takes, a collection of covers of some of his favorites of the 90s. Check out his cover of PJ Harvey’s “Oh My Lover.” More solid songwriting can be found on new albums from Eef Barzelay (of Clem Snide), Silver Jews, Head Like a Kite, Wolf Parade, The Low Lows, The Notwist, and the list goes on (thanks to Largehearted Boy). If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, or not in tune with your 60s lovin’ self, pick up the latest from Ponytail and NOMO, as well as a newly discovered release from Children of the Sixth Root Race. Mick Hucknall, My Brightest Diamond, Tilly & the Wall — it’s definitely a song-lover’s week, so get out there!
