L.A. artist Ariel Pink returns this week with an album “dedicated to ’60s-era LA cult songwriter Bobby Jameson, a promising artist whose career fizzled out early in a haze of management and label troubles, drug abuse and depression.” KEXP Music Director Don Yates notes the release is “a bit of a throwback for Pink, returning to the more experimental lo-fi sound of his earlier records on hook-filled songs ranging from warped psych-pop and eccentric boogie-funk to sci-fi new wave and dreamy post-punk.”

Providence, RI band Deer Tick, led by songwriter John McCauley, return with two simultaneously released albums. “Vol. 1 focuses on the more folk-tinged and acoustic-oriented Deer Tick while Vol. 2 is a raucous set of garage-punk with strong hints of Deer Tick heroes the Replacements and Nirvana on a stellar set of candid, often self-deprecating songs.” Brooklyn band Antibalas release “a concept album about oppression during 19th century America, with lengthy tracks of fierce Afrobeat grooves firmly in the tradition of Fela Kuti.”

Emily Haines & the Soft Skeleton returns with their first album in a decade. It’s the second full length from the frontwoman of Metric. And Mr. Lif & Akrobatik resurect their project The Perceptionists for the first time in twelve years.
