New Full-Length Albums
Andrew Bird - Hands of Glory
Bird released his most recent album, Break It Yourself in March of this year. Hands of Glory is meant to serve as a companion to that release, featuring re-recordings of songs from that album, as well as covers of classic country and bluegrass tunes.

Matthew Friedberger - Matricidal Sons of Bitches
Friedberger is mainly known for his work with sister Eleanor as The Fiery Furnaces. It's been some time since the most recent release from that project and, in the meantime, Eleanor has released her first solo album, Last Summer, last summer (literally). Matthew has been considerably more prolific as a solo artist, having released twelve albums (including this one), with ten in just the past two years!
