Out This Week 7/29

The list of new releases this week is short and sweet… literally that is, with the long awaited full length from Wild Sweet Orange. You’ve been hearing their songs on KEXP for quite some time, years in fact, but the talented boys from Birmingham have finally landed on Canvasback Records (after their previous record deal went south). Apparently, male vocalists are fashionable on the rest of Largehearted Boy’s list: check out the latest from South London folkie Johnny Flynn, Wooden Wand vocalist James Jackson Toth, former Mojave 3 frontman Neil Halstead, and R&B wildman Andre Williams. Also, the CD version of George Carlin’s final standup performance commemorates the groundbreaking comedian’s fiery wit. For record collectors, there’s a truckload of re-issues, including the double vinyl edition of Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Here’s the recommended shortlist:

George Carlin – It’s Bad for Ya
from It’s Bad for Ya on Laugh.Com

Dead Heart Bloom – Our Last Martyr (MP3)
from Fall In on KEI Records (the entire EP is available for free download!)
