Out This Week 11/27

New releases are slowing down as we get closer to the end of the year, but there’s still some gems to be found, like the debut full-length from young New Zealand artist Nadia Reid. KEXP Music Director Don Yates calls the release a “promising set of mostly acoustic-oriented folk-pop reminiscent at times of Laura Marling, combining acoustic and occasional electric guitars and other instrumentation with her warm alto and finely chiseled, at times brutally honest lyrics.”

Ty Segall reissues “a couple of out-of-print Record Store Day releases: a six-song EP of T. Rex covers (Ty Rex EP) released in 2011 with a 2013 two-song 7” single of T. Rex covers, along with one previously unreleased T. Rex cover (“20th Century Boy”).” Parquet Courts return with Monastic Living, an EP featuring everything from krautrock-inspired soundscapes to shoegaze-enduced sonic blasts.

Japanese avant-pop group Deerhoof release Fever 121614, a live album recorded at the Tokyo venue Fever on December 16th, 2014, hence the title. The album comes with an accompanying video download, and the gatefold sleeve features a collage of fan-made manga portraits of the band. Post-rock quartet Disappears covered David Bowie’s 1977 album Low and have released the performance as a live album. And everyone’s favorite Icelandic aviation-themed artist, DJ Flugvél Og Geimskip (aka DJ Airplane and Spaceship), releases her third full-length, Nótt á Hafsbotni (translated: Night at the Bottom of the Ocean), where she explores the sea through her quirky electronic pop.
