(Labels/bands/PR peeps get in touch about having your release posted in this new weekly feature. Obviously to make these lists I have to at least appreciate what the band/artist is doing.)
SAL’s recommendations are in bold.
- American Steel “Destroy Their Future” (Fat Wreck Chords) – Punk band reunites for their first album since 2001. Just got the white vinyl in the mail last week!
- Division Day “Beartrap Island” (Eenie Meenie) – A proper re-release of a fantastic album I reviewed earlier in the year. With two extra tracks!
- Japancakes “Giving Machines” (Darla)
- Frightened Rabbit “Sing The Greys” (Fat Cat)
- Mobius Band “Heaven” (Misra)
- The Most Serene Republic “Population” (Arts & Crafts)
- Nico Vega “No Child Left Behind EP” (Myspace) – Yup, Myspace Records…I know, I know. But, I have been listening to this EP non-stop.
- Rosetta “Wake/Lift” (Translation Loss)
- The Sadies “New Season” (Yep Roc)
