Out This Week 10/13

The Flaming Lips - Embryonic

Fans who were excited to hear the new songs during The Flaming Lipsspectacle of a live show this summer can now hear the official versions as their latest, Embryonic, hits stores in a deluxe edition this week, including a fur box set! (Why didn’t Blitzen Trapper think of that?):


Springing forth also this week are new progeny from KEXP favorites like Grant-Lee Phillips, Forro in the Dark, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down, We All Have Hooks for Hands, The Heavy, and the long-awaited and excellent sophomore release from Engineers. Interesting debuts arise this week from The Temper Trap and Neon Indian as well as Bad Lieutenant, not the full frontal Harvey Keitel-fronted ultra-violent movie (though it’s the spark of inception for it), but the new project of New Order’s Bernard Sumner. Check out the full list from Largehearted Boy. Oh, and if it’s immaculate births you’re into, the Bob Dylan Christmas album is indeed a reality and can be yours now.

    Great selection; thanks.
    I wonder why you leave the links for the media files with the generic “MP3″ where you might as well “hide” the link behind the artist & title name, thus enabling playlist oriented add-ons succh as Yahoo Media Player or Foxy Tunes to display more meaningful information while the file is being played

    Thanks for the suggestion. Enjoy the free music!
