Out This Week 11/6

Acclaimed Canadian artist Grimes returns with her highly-anticipated album, Art Angels. KEXP Music Director Don Yates calls her fourth full-length, “her most brightly melodic and also her most aggressive-sounding release, featuring a cleaner, more luminous sound for her adventurous dance-pop while also incorporating a variety of live instrumentation and unusual textures on intricately crafted songs that juxtapose soaring melodies with dark lyrics.”

Just in time for the holidays, Bob Dylan releases the latest in his Bootleg Series, “which chronicles the outtakes, demos and alternate versions of songs from Dylan’s greatest era from 1965-66, when his folk-rock went electric and visionary on the classic albums Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde On Blonde. The set is commercially available as a 2-CD/3-LP Best-Of, a 6-CD deluxe version and an insane 18-CD limited edition of every moment of those recording sessions.”

Guy Garvey, frontman of beloved UK band Elbow, releases his debut solo album, treading jazzier, more soulful territory than his arena-rock main group. Soldiers of Fortune — a self-described “anti-band” featuring members of Interpol, Oneida, and Endless Boogie — release their latest, featuring guest appearances from Stephen Malkmus and Cass McCombs. And Castle Face Records, the label co-founded by John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees, share two great full-lengths this week: the new one from singer/songwriter Kelley Stoltz, and W-X, a new project of White Fence’s prolific Tim Presley.
