This week in the Basement: King Gizzard take their wildest left turn yet (pop music) on Butterfly 3000; Cold Cave release their first album in 10 years; The Scientists release their first album in 35 years (!); Sloan drop a second volume of their B-Sides Win series; and Bertrand Burgalat is living the dream on new album Rêve Capital.
If you need more new album reviews, Andrew tackles Sleater-Kinney and more in Notable Releases. For more Basement-approved struff from this week (it was very busy) there's: Arab Strap released a new version of "Fable of the Urban Fox"; The Goon Sax shared another great song from their upcoming Matador debut; SUUNS announced a new album; and both Bobby Gillespie and Will Sergeant's memoirs are coming out this fall via Third Man. Plus: your favorite band probably announced a tour.
