First up, BC riff-mongers Black Mountain, known for their epic-length tracks, have stepped out of their comfort zone for new album Wilderness Heart. The majority of the tracks are acoustic, but don't assume they have gone soft; there are some loose gems hiding in there.
The Exclaim! pick of the week is Justin Townes Earle's fourth album, Harlem River Blues. The album was partly inspired by moving to NYC and the stories he's heard from the people living around him. Next up, Grinderman mix things up with Grinderman 2. Drifting away from previous works, the band described the writing process as "having no ground rules or limitations."
Pantera have released three discs of hell for a digitally remastered version of their classic album, Cowboys From Hell 20th Anniversary Edition. And on the other end of the music spectrum, Blonde Redhead have kicked up the electronic for their eighth studio effort, Penny Sparkle.
Toronto, ON rock musicians The Coast are staking their claim to the Queen with their album, Queen Cities, inspired while on tour, the band realized that every city in Canada has some sort of link to the Queen. And last, but certainly not least, Megafaun wrap you up in a big hug with Heretofore. This bluesy, folk, six-song EP is warm and sleepy, perfect for fall.
