Out This Week 7/30

Another light summer week of new releases, but there’s a handful hitting shelves today that you’ll definitely want to check out. Portland singer-songwriter Alela Diane tops the list with her fourth album of heartbreaking (and broken) folk-pop, highlighting her rich voice and often personal lyrics. Dead Confederate frontman T. Hardy Morris strips back his band’sRead more...

Out This Week 7/9

Since we’re celebrating Sub Pop 25th Anniversary, a.k.a. Silver Jubilee, this week, it’s fitting that one of their new signees should top this week’s list of new releases.

Out This Week 6/25

Topping this week’s list of new releases is the third album by Chicago band Smith Westerns. While the band’s 2011 release, Dye It Blonde, drew tons of comparisons (and a tiny bit of flak) for its fuzzy glam nods to Nuggets-era gems, their new release finds the band aiming for what our Music Director, DonRead more...

Out This Week 6/18

K-vicker? No, K-vaker! Today’s release of Sigur Rós‘ 2013 album, Kveikur, may seem like a speedy turn-around on the heels of their 2012 LP, Valtari, but the ground-shaking sound on the new LP is what the Icelandic band has been building toward over the past few years. While the relatively placid Valtari surfaced some earlierRead more...

Out This Week 6/11

Florida band Surfer Blood couldn’t wait until summer to release their anticipated sophomore album of poppy, surf-influenced indie rock, but that’s just as well, as Pythons takes a relatively darker turn.

Out This Week 6/4

On their dreamy fifth album, Scottish band Camera Obscura adds a local flavor by recording with Portland based producer (and former Seattleite) Tucker Martine. Our Music Director, Don Yates, calls Desire Lines “a beautifully crafted set of bittersweet, soul-tinged indie-pop, featuring a warm, lush sound with guitars, synths, horns, organ and other instrumentation accompanying TracyanneRead more...
