Out This Week 5/12

Jeremy Enigk

Jeremy Enigk, formerly/currently(?) of Sunny Day Real Estate and The Fire Theft, and a long time supporter of KEXP, is releasing his third, and quite excellent, full-length solo album today. You can check out Jeremy’s performance exclusively for KEXP on the Morning Show, Thursday at 8AM, and then later that night at Neumos. For both performances, he’ll be joined by the 15-piece Seattle Rock Orchestra.

Another must-have this week is Steve Earle‘s new album, Townes, which collects 15 songs written by his mentor and friend, the late Townes Van Zandt. Fortunately for us, Earle was kind enough to preview the songs live on KEXP this past Sunday.

Other releases you should drop in your shopping basket this week include Maximo Park, The Church, The Crystal Method, Meat Puppets, and The Wooden Birds, a project featuring American Analog Set frontman Andrew Kenny. Grab the list from Largehearted Boy and take a quick listen to these sample tracks before you head out to your favorite record store!
