Out This Week 11/4

This week’s list of new releases (courtesy of Largehearted Boy) doesn’t contain as many politically inspired bands as you might think, but there are a few to put you in the lever-pulling mood: the hopefully monikered punk band Black President, the electorally minded Dancer Vs. Politician, and The Henry Clay People, who name-check the nineteenth-century American statesman who unsuccessfully ran for president five times! Otherwise, you’ve got a lot of lesser known but still quite interesting releases to fill your basket on your way to the voting booths. Try the latest from incumbents Q-Tip, Travis, Mavis Staples, The Lucksmiths, James Yorkston, and Bob Dylan, as well as promising debuts from Wallpaper (who were just live on air today), Wild Beasts, Megapuss, Little Joy, and The Dead Trees, among others.
