One of the must-haves from this week’s list of new releases (courtesy of our friend Largehearted Boy) is the latest from Elvis Perkins, who just performed songs from the new album, Elvis Perkins in Dearland, live in-studio yesterday at KEXP>. Also on the list, you’ll find a lot of bands heading down to SXSW next week: Bishop Allen, BLK JKS, Balmorhea, Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, Cursive, among others. Seattle bands and Northwest labels represent this week:Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band with a strong debut, a great new EP from Sleepy Eyes Of Death, plus the anticipated new releases from Handsome Furs (Sub Pop) and Mirah (K Records). One time Seattle resident Chris Cornell is putting out his Timbaland produced solo effort Scream. Also worth checking out are the latest from Extra Golden, Arboretum, Tim Heckner, Julie Doiron, Chin Chin, Madeline, Buddy and Julie Miller, Razorlight ,Madeleine Peyroux and the first release in nearly ten years from Los Fabulosos Cadillacs.

    What’s the word on Buckner’s re-issue of The Hill? I see you’ve got an mp3 of Emily Sparks – are the tracks broken out individually now?

    I’m not sure about on the CD reissue, but if you go to the Merge Digital Store, you’ll see that the album is tracked out.

    Ahhhh, the digital age…aka, the instant gratification era. We’ll see what happens!

    can’t believe KEXP mentioned the new Cornell album. biggest disappointment / embarrassment ever to many of us. on a happier note … KEXP rocks, keep up the good work.
