Don't miss our recommended album of the week, electronic chameleon Neon Indian's Psychic Chasms. The record is a lo-fi electronic pastiche that is entirely absorbing despite being minimalistic and skeletal. Oh, and it's hazy as hell. In a somewhat similar electronic vein, we also have the well-travelled Luciano releasing a minimal electronic album in the form of Tribute to the Sun, his first long-player in five years.
Brooklyn noise poppers Grooms have released their debut album Rejoicer, while the Happy Hollows have dropped Spells, which is smart and catchy enough to suggest that there's more to come in the band's future.
Also out this week is the latest release from Skeletonwitch, with their album Breathing the Fire striking the perfect balance between the aggression of black metal and the speed and intensity of thrash. Meanwhile, Tool-influenced hard rockers Chevelle have returned with Sci-Fi Crimes, their follow-up to 2007's Vena Sera.
And finally, from Vancouver's Mint Records comes Carolyn Mark and NQ Arbuckle with their surprisingly rock-oriented and upbeat Let's Just Stay Here.
