Out This Week 6/24

Besides The Saturday Knights’ first full-length, Mingle, which you can stream in its entirety between the KEXP Blog and My Old Kentucky Blog (see below), there are plenty of other new releases this week worth squandering your money on in this downfalling economy. Beggars imprint XL has unveiled Get Damaged, an EP of songs by Be Your Own Pet that their parent label, Universal, refused to put out. Other exciting releases include the self-titled debut by Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, new long-players by Love As Laughter and The Watson Twins, a terrific album of new material by Alejandro Escovedo, the much anticipated fifth album by Sigur Ros, an EP by Seattle band The Daguerreotypes, a remastered collection of singles by Jay Reatard, and, finally, the US releases of The Wombats and Hercules & Love Affair. Grab a fistful of Largehearted Boy’s list, sample these fine tunes, and get out there!
