Out This Week 11/9

You can feel the wheels grinding down each week as the number of new releases continues to dwindle. While we may be past the prime weeks of the year, you’re still likely to find some new discoveries. In fact, with fewer releases, you’ve got more time to put into your game — there’s still time enough to hit your double eagle if you keep getting out there!

Among the notable new releases this week is the EP by The Tallest Man on Earth, which, as a followup to his excellent album, The Wild Hunt, from earlier this year, collects five songs written on the road, including his one and only song performed on electric guitar. Another highlight comes from the Bay Area band Weekend, whose debut, Sports, sounds a bit like Guided By Voices filtered through My Bloody Valentine. And Athens band Maserati have released their first album since the death of their beloved drummer, Jerry Fuchs, paying tribute to him the best way they can… by rocking out!

Stratospheria Cubensis, the latest from Seattle band Lesbian is a “prog-doom journey” of the heaviest kind, and while you’re still on a head trip, check out An Introduction to Syd Barrett, newly remastered. Like a son of Syd, Philadelphia’s Kurt Vile writes everything from lo-fi psych-folk to lush guitar ballads, and his new single is a sweet dose of jangly psychy pop. And on Jack White’s Third Man Records, Cincinnati garage rockers The Greenhornes have reunited for their first studio album in eight years.

These and more can be found on Largehearted Boy’s list and at your local record store, so go out swinging!
