I picked up a few new albums today (and this week). Here's the run down:
** Tres Records
: Shipping and Handling
This is a hip-hop compilation from Tres Records, a company started by one half of the People Under the Stairs
which I have talked about before
. This album is made up of tracks previously only available on vinyl. If you like anyone from Tres Records you will like this album, it's got them all.
** Count Bass D
: Act your waist size
Count Bass D's latest release. I haven't dug to far into it yet but the beats be sweet so far. If you like Madlib
or J Dilla
this may be for you.
: To Find Me Gone
Second album from a band that is better without Devendra Banhart
. If you like Sufjan Stevens
or Iron and Wine
you should check them out.
** Wolf Parade
: Wolf Parade EP
and Apologies to Queen Mary
Their most recent self titled EP and first full length release. Crazy indie rock from the Canadians. If you are into Arcade Fire
you will probably dig this.
** Architecture in Helsinki
: In Case We Die
and Fingers Crossed
Two albums, Australian twee pop at it's finest. If you like Belle and Sebastian
or Acid House Kings
there is probably a good chance you will like these guys.
** Explosions in the Sky
: The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place
and Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever
Two albums from the instrumental, post-rock band from Austin. Think Mars Volta
minus the high pitched lead singer and a bit less harsh.
I would post links to sample MP3's but most of these bands have samples on there websites and I am tired after all the linking I just did.
