Hey, hope those of you that had a long weekend enjoyed the time off, hope you're staying cool, and hope you're ready for more new music after last week's slower release schedule. This week has plenty of great new ones, seven of which I highlight below and more of which Bill talks about in Bill's Indie Basement, including Party Dozen, Viagra Boys, Mush, Spiral Stairs (of Pavement), and James Righton (of Klaxons).
On top of those, honorable mentions include: Metric, Westside Gunn, Neil Young & Crazy Horse (shelved 2001 album), The Deslondes, Brent Faiyaz, Attia Taylor, Quinton Brock, Apollo Brown, The Slow Death, Try The Pie, Dead Tired (Alexisonfire), Kota The Friend, Ransom, Among Legends, Caterina Barbieri, Tyshawn Sorey, AJ Lambert, Delicate Steve, the PACKS EP, the Wet EP, the Blood EP, the FLO EP, the SSGKobe EP, and the Kid Cudi compilation.
Read on for my picks. What's your favorite release of the week?
