New Music Friday - October 16, 2015

Be sure to view a list of upcoming releases here!

Essential Full-Length Releases

Alex Bleeker & The Freaks - Country Agenda

This seems to be the year that the members of Real Estate all decided to release solo work. Matt Mondanile has long been working solo as Ducktails, but Martin Courtney and Alex Bleeker have solo projects of their own. Bleeker's side project started in 2009 with Mondanile and Courtney, as well as a few other musicians. This is the third album from the folk-focused band.

Watch: "The Rest"

Beach House - Thank Your Lucky Stars

It seems like just a few months ago that Beach House released their last album...oh wait. Not even two months after releasing an incredible fifth album, Depression Cherry, Beach House are already back with the follow-up. Adamantly not a collection of b-sides or a companion to that last record, the album continues their focus on a simpler sound, but with darker results.

Listen: "Majorette"
Listen: "One Thing"

Deerhunter - Fading Frontier

While there are a lot of artists whose work I love, there are very few both with a substantial body of work and no real missteps. Deerhunter is one of those bands for me. Fading Frontier the seventh album from the band, and they continue their mix of ambient and experimental styles, and their mastery of pop elements. Already, I have been playing this album on repeat.

  1. This place doesn’t have any 'i'm too cool and busy for you' wait staff. As per me, everyone at these venues is nice, friendly, and helpful and they really seem to like their jobs there and that is important to me. We had an awesome experience here.
