Out This Week 5/19

Romanian Names

This week, John Vanderslice finally releases his latest, Romanian Names, which he previewed live on KEXP in Berkeley a few months ago. He’ll be back live on KEXP this Friday, May 22, at 2PM to perform more songs from the album.

Among the most anticipated releases, around this station at least, are Apostle of Hustle, Passion Pit, Jason Lytle (formerly of Grandaddy), Jarvis Cocker, Tori Amos, and White Rabbits. Other strong contenders for your weekly wages, whose previous albums you’re likely to have heard on KEXP, include Au Revoir Simone, The Field, Federico Aubele, Jeffrey Lewis, and a 2-disc collection of rarities from Iron & Wine. If you’re looking for something new, try the self-titled debut from Malaysian-born singer Zee Avi, whose sweet voice recalls Nora Jones and Regina Spektor at times. For other outstanding female voices, try Headless Heroes, which features Alela Diane on vocals, and British songwriter Polly Scattergood, who also debuts with a self-titled release.
