After many lean New Release Tuesdays, we finally have one with a bit of meat on its bones!
Seattle labels have out a couple of hot releases: Barsuk releases John Vanderslice's Emerald City and it is just plain gorgeous! Sub Pop has put out Tiny Vipers Hands Across The Road. Jesy Fortino is Tiny Vipers and her style of stripped down guitar played around lovely vocal melodies is haunting and memorable. Even when you see her live, sandwiched between more rockin acts, she commands attention and and gets even the most raucous of patrons to hush and listen.
Everyone is talking about how Hanson and Silverchair have grown up and are putting out really great records. I am still not sure I buy it, but I am willing to give them a listen!
LOTS of good old country to feast upon if you have the hankerin' to, and lots of other big releases from some icons (Prince, Sebadoh, Flaming Lips). Check them out!
