Out This Week 2/17


Artists these days are just being irresponsible. Isn’t this the time we should be saving our money? But here they are putting out one great album after another. Just look at the new releases this week from Largehearted Boy’s list — how can you really deny yourself the latest from M. Ward, Morrissey, Beirut, Asobi Seksu, Robyn Hitchcock and the Venus 3, Jason Isbell, Vetiver, Eleni Mandell, Odawas, Faunts, Iran, Aidan Moffat (of Arab Strap), Steve Kilbey (of The Church) and William Elliott Whitmore? That’s not to mention newcomers like Mi Ami and Fol Chen. But if you should have any regrets about spending your savings, you can always temper that guilt by throwing down for the new Red Hot compilation Dark Was the Night and help support the their effort to raise awareness around HIV and AIDS. If altruism or guilt abatement isn’t enough to motivate you, check out DJ El Toro’s preview in his column about this comp that features over 30 songs from artists like Grizzly Bear, Spoon, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, My Morning Jacket, and too many others to list. So don’t be as irresponsible as all the bands and artists who have released albums this week — get out there and support good causes… like our economy!
