Last but Never Ever Least... Friday New Releases!
Our award-winning new release roundup is alwaus new and, uh, fresh. So get your fresh ass down to the Penguin Feather and grab these fresh slabs o' wax.
Best Coast - Always Tomorrow (Concord)Singer Bethany Cosentino recently opened up about her struggles with drugs and alcohol. We are happy to hear she is doing well with sobriety, and happy too to hear the bright pop-rock we have come to expect from this California duo.
Greg Dulli - Random Desire (Royal Cream/BMG)The Afghan Whigs frontman mades his solo debut and cements his position as the second-coolest Cincinnati musician (Bootsy Collins No. 1; even Greg would admit that).
Guided By Voices - Surrender Your Poppy Field (GBV)Next to that stack of New Yorker magazines that keeps piling up, add the latest from Robert Pollard and crew.
Matt Holubowski - (Les Disques Audiogramme)
Back on episodes 437 and 438, we interviewed this French Canadian singer-songwriter. He even played some live music for the pod. So listen to that. Then hear Matt’s latest quietly intense song cycle.
King Krule - Man Alive! (True Panther Sounds/Matador)
London’s Archy Marshall mixes post-punk with electronica with industrial with art rock with noise rock into a sound that would be like if you took a Beck 45 and played it at 33 1/3.
Ozzy Osbourne - Ordinary Man (Epic)
On his 12th solo album, Ozzy works with Travis Scott, Post Malone and Elton John. And at 71 years old, his earnest yowl still sounds fresh. This is no ordinary man.
Lee Ranaldo & Raul Refree - Names of North End Women (Mute)
Former Sonic Youth guitarist Renaldo teams up with flamenco guitarist Refree for some soft art rock. Musical experimentations need not always be explorations in feedback.
