Out This Week 9/28

It’s getting hard to keep up with all the great fall releases. If you thought last week was jam-packed, just check out what’s in store this week!

Kurt Vile‘s highly-anticipated sixth solo album is out. KEXP Music Director Don Yates calls it, “another first-rate outing of expansive, folk-tinged psych-rock, with a consistently strong set of mostly dark, open-ended songs combining Vile’s expressive guitar work along with some occasional banjo, piano and other instrumentation with his laconic drawl and smart, self-aware lyrics that leaven deep melancholy with flashes of wry humor.” Scottish trio Chvrches share “another powerful, impeccably crafted set of anthemic electro-pop with bright, shimmering synths and propulsive rhythms accompanying Lauren Mayberry’s crystalline vocals and emotive lyrics.”

Big Grams, a collaboration of Outkast’s Big Boi and Phantogram, release their self-titled debut EP, featuring guest appearances from Run The Jewels and Skrillex. Swedish band Dungen share “an impressive set of expansive psych-rock, with a warm, beautifully detailed sound combining a variety of instrumentation including fuzzy guitars, piano, organ, horns, woodwinds, vibes, harp and more with delicate vocals and twisty melodies.” Electropop veterans New Order return with a new album (read an in-depth review on the KEXP Blog here), and supergroup The Dead Weather unleash their third full-length, “another visceral set of bluesy hard-rock with searing guitar riffs, muscular rhythms and wailing vocals.”
