Out This Week 8/19

Is it raining where you are? ‘Cause it’s pouring here! This week’s new releases are flooding stores today and about to wreak havoc on what’s left of your mid-recession savings. But if there’s any good time to drain your reserves, it would be now — the number of worthwhile new releases is astounding. Just look at the (Largehearted Boy’s) list: The Gaslight Anthem, The Dandy Warhols, The Walkmen, The Stills, David Byrne, Juliana Hatfield, Death Vessel, Jaguar Love, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Stereolab, The Caesars, Ra Ra Riot, The Moondoggies (live today), and so many others! You can also pick up a 5-disc box set from Robyn Hitchcock, along with a selection of his back catalog remastered. A rainy day has come indeed, so give a listen and get out there!
