Out This Week 11/20

It’s a holiday week, so for new releases, we get a cornucopia of reissues, remixes, retrospectives, and more. Husband-and-wife duo Shovels & Rope share a surprise covers album that KEXP Music Director Don Yates notes features appearances “ranging from Shakey Graves and JD McPherson to Lucius and J. Roddy Walston.” Violin virtuoso Kishi Bashi shares “a live album recorded at various locations across America with a string quartet and banjo, featuring all-acoustic versions of songs from his first two albums.” Castle Face Records (co-founded by Thee Oh Sees’ John Dwyer) continues their Live In San Francisco series with Useless Eaters and “a scorching live set of fiery garage-punk from this Memphis-bred, San Francisco-based band, recorded at the basement venue Vacation earlier this year.

Shelflife and Korda Records have teamed up to reissue the first three Sire Records albums from dream-pop veterans The Ocean Blue on vinyl: The Ocean Blue, Cerulean, and Beneath the Rhythm and Sound. You can hear an exclusive live performance from the band on KEXP, on Monday, November 30th at 9:00 AM PT, recorded at The Cutting Room Studios in New York City.

Sub Pop have reissued the first five Mark Lanegan solo albums, which were either out-of-print or previously unreleased on vinyl. Each album was cut from new lacquers and pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and is housed in a sleeve reproducing the art for its original release. And Domino pays tribute to another Northwest legend, Olympia trio Beat Happening, with a remastered, career-spanning double album anthology, lovingly curated by the band themselves.
