Out This Week 8/25


Arctic Monkeys release their third LP this week, channeling a slightly different sound by working with Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme for part of the recording, but fans will find their trademark style intact. Among other new releases this week: Jemina Pearl‘s first solo effort since the demise of Be Your Own Pet; Blitzen Trapper‘s Black River Killer EP, which makes official the tour CDR they were selling at shows previously; and a long-awaited follow up to And The Glass Handed Kites from Danish band Mew. Hopefully, Aussie band Jet will get a better review for Shaka Rock then they did for Shine On. Songstresses take center stage this week with new albums from Imogen Heap, Dolores O’Riordan, Samara Lubelski, and Sally Shapiro. Matisyahu fans say a “Tov, toda” for his first in three years, and fans of Elliott Brood might want to check out their current tourmates The Wooden Sky. Other worthwhile releases include a new collection from Willie Nelson, more standup from Patton Oswalt, and dizzy electronica from Teengirl Fantasy.
