Out This Week 5/5


The new Conor Oberst album, billed with his “Mystic Valley Band,” hits stores today. If you didn’t get a chance to hear the album streaming on NPR Music last week, you can sample it below — and it will be featured as our Song of the Day podcast tomorrow, so stay tuned. And while you’re picking that up, be sure to grab the latest from the excellent Portland electro-pop group Starfucker, plus other worthwhile releases from a wildly diverse group this week: Akron/Family, NOMO, Fischerspooner, The Horrors, St. Vincent, Magik Markers, Pink Mountaintops, New York Dolls, Ben Harper, Peaches, and a soundtrack by British Sea Power. Sub Pop is reissuing Enter the Vaselines just in time for The Vaselines‘ Seattle appearance next week at Neumos! Take a copy of Largehearted Boy’s list along with and visit your friendly neighborhood record shop.

Cinco de Mayo bonus: write in before 2PM tomorrow (5/6) for your chance to win a free vinyl copy of Coming From Reality, the latest reissue of Rodriguez from Seattle’s own Light in the Attic. (Fun fact: Rodriquez was born and bred in Detroit, but his parents immigrated from Mexico in the 1920’s.)
