Out This Week 8/4


It’s a Japandroids kind of week around KEXP. Today, their debut, Post-Nothing, gets its official label release (on Polyvinyl Records) and the band is also spotlighted in an ABC News/Pitchfork co-produced segment that features footage from their live session at KEXP a short while ago. Not only that, Japandroids are playing the KEXP BBQ this Saturday at the Seattle Center (and did we mention that it’s free?). If you caught them at the Capitol Hill Block Party, you know it’s going to be a fantastic set.

Creaturesque, the latest from Throw Me the Statue, who played last Friday’s Concert at the Mural, also comes out today, as does the latest from Fruit Bats, who expand their sweet pop melodies with influences from classic American rock and Americana. Fans of Interpol should pick up frontman Paul Banks’ debut from his solo project Julian Plenti, and surely Modest Mouse fans are chomping at the bit (or nibbling at the cheese) for the EP of unreleased songs and b-sides, No One’s First, and You’re Next. Besides MM and TMTS aren’t the only great Northwest bands releasing albums this week; check out the latest from Nurses, Desolation Wilderness, and U.S.E.
