New music Tuesday, it's a slower week, but still some great releases!
Asobi Seksu - Fluorescence
It's time for all these new dream pop acts to step aside and let the veterans show them how it's done. These guys have been at it for 2001 and now they're out with another great release.
Bright Eyes - The People's Key
Conor Oberst has been doing a lot of other things since the last Bright Eyes album (Monsters of Folk, solo albums) and has hinted that Bright Eyes was done. Well, not quite yet, though some believe that may be the last Bright Eyes album. The full album is streaming over at NPR. It's good, but I still really like Lifted the most. This one is more accessible, though.
PJ Harvey - Let England Shake
I woke this morning to find that Pitchfork has already added this release to its Best New Music list. It's a good album, it was also streaming on NPR. It's almost upbeat at times (in terms of the music). It's another shift in her sound, but a good one.
