Out This Week 10/26

Creatures run amok in this week’s roundup, which includes new releases from Pepper Rabbit, Andrew Bird, Gold Panda, Gospel Claws, and The Octopus Project. And speaking of animal collectives, one of AC’s primary songwriters, Avey Tare, channels some of his darker energy on his debut solo release. While not animal oriented but certainly appealing to fans of Animal Collective, Philadelphia duo Sun Airway tops this week’s list with their own debut of sparkly, synthy, melodic electro-pop.

And while you’re tracking those down, be sure to bag the other great releases hitting stores today, like the latest from young Cincinnati band Pomegranates, debuts from Toronto’s pop androgyne Diamond Rings and the LA-based all girl quartet Warpaint, and two solid EPs from The War on Drugs and Seattle band Telekinesis. There’s all that, more below, and even more to be found on Largehearted Boy’s list, so get out there… and happy hunting!
