People don't seem to comment on interesting new releases in Mutantis' daily updates anymore. This thread is to highlight new releases that you think look interesting or worth noting. Kind of like a group SFL.
I'll start off:
Langhorne Slim- Be Set Free
I'm surprised no one else has mentioned this yet.
Tom Russell- Blood And Candle Smoke
Hey Nanker, I think you'd be interested in this. Johnny Cash, Guy Clark, Dave Alvin, and Doug Sahm have recorded his songs. This is a new album and AMG's pick. Review says that was recorded with members of Calexico, though not obvious from the samples.
The Walkabouts- Ended Up A Stranger
This was previously on my SFL, but then it got dropped from emu. Good to see it back.
Willard Grant Conspiracy- Paper Covers Stone
I kind of have a soft spot for WGC's gloomy americana, but this one sounds like acoustic re-recordings of their own songs which makes it less interesting to me.
Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood- Out Louder
MMW's new album is supposed to be real good. Too bad it's not on emu. This sounds pretty good if you're into their groove and haven't already OD'ed on similar stuff.
Of course, I'm excited about the Feelies reissues. I got chills listening to the Crazy Rhythms
samples this morning. It brings back good memories. MP3's can't really replace my copy on white vinyl, but it will be good to hear the tunes again.
