Out This Week 10/20


This being the week of CMJ Music Festival, it’s not surprising that many of these artists whose albums are being released this week are also playing in NYC. In fact, two of them will be featured live on KEXP this week: Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson on Wednesday at 9AM and Alec Ounsworth (of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) on Friday at 7AM.

Also among the releases that should top KEXP listeners’ “must buy” lists is the latest from Maps, whose previous, debut release was nominated for a Mercury Prize in 2007. Seattle represents this week with bands The Tripwires, U.S.E , and current Seattle resident Spiral Stairs (Pavement) all making a showing, as do Seattle labels Sub Pop and The Control Group with great new releases by Flight of the Conchords and El Perro Del Mar respectively. Of the Brits, be sure to check out the buzz-worthy Florence and the Machine and the latest from The Rakes. There are lots of other great releases included on Largehearted Boy’s list, including some interesting compilations, the most exiting of which has to be Yo Gabba Gabba: Music Is Awesome with contributions from The Shins, Biz Markie, Mark Kozelek, Of Montreal and more!
