Published Nov 20, 2012Like leaves from the autumn trees, there's a pile of new releases dropping this week. Remember to take a look at Exclaim!'s Recently Reviewed section to get access to all the new reviews, but look below for some of the week's highlights.
Kicking things off is heavy outfit Kylesa's rarities comp From the Vaults, Vol. 1, featuring varying takes on classic songs and a host of unheard B-sides. We Wear White by funk-punk visionary E.D. Sedgwick, meanwhile, features 11 tracks of funky lo-fi garage rock and earned the Exclaim! Mark of Excellence. And DVA have released their follow-up to the amazing Pretty Ugly with their latest EP Fly Juice.
After earning his stripes in several shoegaze bands, the London DJ Sigha has dropped his solo work Living With Ghost, in which he showcases these influences beautifully. Next, producers Merveille & Crosson have released another mind-expanding collaboration entitled DRM with tracks both complex and unpredictable.
For those who like things loud, Code Orange Kids have successfully managed to capture the intensity of their live performance with the help of producer Kurt Ballou (Converge) on Love Is Love // Return to Dust. Lastly, veterans of the genre Death have been continuing their reissue campaign with their third record Spiritual Healing, earning the Exclaim! Mark of Excellence along the way.
