Meet our new release chef.
The magical, as-of-yet-unnamed pig chef who rules new releases is preparing to drop some sweet, sweet magic on you all tomorrow. That's right, one of the best Tuesdays of 2006 (so far) happens tomorrow, and we don't want you to miss out, so come visit the pig and pick up one or more (or all) of the following records:
Neko Case - Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
*She needs no introduction, but we've been listening to this one for a while, and can say that it keeps up with her excellent last proper album, Blacklisted. One of the best of the year.
Mogwai - Mr. Beast
* The Scottish masters of quiet-loud dynamics and incredible guitar songs are back, and they aren't afraid to get a little pretty on us. Get this one before the band plays two shows in Atlanta this weekend.
Van Morrison - Pay the Devil
* Legendary songwriter drops an album with three original tracks and a dozen covers of his favorite country tunes, including a great version of "There Stands the Glass."
Of Montreal - The Early Four Track Recordings; The Bedside Drama a Petite Tragedy; The Bird Who Continues to Eat the Rabbit's Flower
* Behold! For one of Athens' finest indie pop exports has released three more re-issues.
Pink Mountaintops - Axis of Evol
* Bearded genius Stephen McBean (also of Black Mountain fame) offers up his second album under the Pink Mountaintops moniker, and it's a fuzzed-out blast of good ol' rock 'n' roll.
James Hunter - People Gonna Talk
* We put on this English, blue-eyed soul singer the other day, and three people instantly wanted to buy it. Unfortunately, it wasn't in yet. We'd be happy to play him for you when the record comes out tomorrow, though.
Mudhoney - Under a Billion Suns
* It's been four years since one of the few bands that still exist from a time when Seattle was Seattle! has released an album, and this Sub Pop release breaks that silence.
Matisyahu - Youth
* You know all those (there's one in the store, actually) photos of the up-and-coming Hasidic rapper/reggae guy? Well, this is his super highly anticipated new album. Be the first on your block to sing its praises.
Also, don't miss new albums by The Rogers Sisters, I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness, Figurines, The Little Willies, David Gilmour, Goldfrapp, The Buzzcocks, Centro-matic and Stereolab, amongst others.
