Out This Week 9/23

While the economy continues to spiral downward, it’s a good time to reconsider how you’re investing your money. Rather than watch it all wither away in the dwindling stock market, try listening to it instead with your invigorated music collection! Sure, your accountant might not approve, but one look at Largehearted Boy’s list should tell you it’s a bull market in records stores this week. Blue chip bands returning with much anticipated new albums include TV on the Radio, Kings of Leon, Jenny Lewis, Cold War Kids, Mogwai, and Blitzen Trapper. Riskier but potentially more impactful are the excellent efforts from lesser known or newer bands like The Pica Beats, Ten Kens, These United States, Friendly Fires, and Starfucker. Head over to your favorite music retailer today and update your portfolio.
