Published Sep 11, 2012With fall on the way, there are loads of incredible new releases to check out and pick up at either your local record store or online. Whether you are looking for the new record by your favourite artist or are looking for something different and exciting, be sure to head over to the Recently Reviewed section of Exclaim.ca to read all about the latest album releases. Here are a couple highlights from this week.
To start things off, Mystery Machine return from the dead. After an almost 15-year hiatus, the Vancouver shoegazers are back with their new record Western Magnetics. This record features heavy use of effects and distortion with some more exotic song structures, making it perfect for any fan of '90s alt-rock.
On the heavier side of things, we have the Roman-themed Ex Deo soaring to new heights with their newest record Caligvla. This follow-up to 2009's Romulus focuses on the reign of Emperor Caligula and hits the listener hard with a bigger, more bombastic sound. Next, New York doomsters Serpentine Path debut their self-titled release with a sound that captures the emotions of New York's urban residents as they struggle and fail to prosper.
Lastly, take a look at the new dance and electronic releases, starting with the newest offering from Deadbeat. Simply titled Eight, the record features a more aggressive UK style of dub techno music from the Canadian beatsmith. Finally, John Tejada releases his ninth LP, The Predicting Machine, featuring a variety of different and dramatic sounds.
