My one top recommendation for the week is the Statehood debut.
- Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy “Ask Forgiveness” (Drag City) – Cover EP from indie troubadour with one original song. The covers run the gamut from Björk to Danzig to R. Kelly.
- British Sea Power “Krankenhaus?” (RTW) – New EP from British band.
- Haram “Drescher” (Lovitt) – Second album from DC punk/post-hardcore behemoths.
- Joe Lally “Nothing Is Underrated” (Dischord) – Second solo album from Fugazi bassist.
- Six Organs Of Admittance “Shelter From The Ash” (Drag City)- Ben Chasny returns with the 9th (?) SOOA album.
- Sleep Station “The Pride of Chester James” (Eyeball) – This band has always been underrated.
- Statehood “Lies & Rhetoric” (Self-Released) – Ex-members of The Dismemberment Plan, The Vehicle Birth and Motorcycle Wars release their debut. I featured the band here earlier in the year. Review upcoming.
