Published Jun 12, 2012If you're hoping to get your hands on some new music, check out Exclaim!'s Recently Reviewed section, where you can find our picks (and pans) from this week's releases. Here's a selection of the highlights.
To start, veteran Canadian prog-rockers Rush make a return with the ambitious concept album, Clockwork Angels, while Swedish songwriter Kristian Matsson -- better known as the Tallest Man on Earth -- delivers his fourth collection of acoustic pop tunes entitled There's No Leaving Now.
Then there's Brooklyn electro-pop duo the Hundred in the Hands, who offer up some effects-heavy and atmospheric numbers on their pulsating sophomore album, Red Night, and De Walta (aka David Koch) releases Wander, his first album since arriving on Berlin's thriving electronic scene in 2007.
Next up, Austin indie outfit the Young live up to the high expectations set by their promising 2010 debut with Dub Egg, and talented doom metal act Witch Mountain follow up last year's South of Salem with the ably crafted LP Cauldron of the Wild, earning an Exclaim! Mark of Excellence this week.
Finally, Pharoah return with a two-track, doomcore seven-inch, the appropriately titled This House Is Doomed, while Seven Sisters of Sleep drop an energetic and beat-heavy self-titled seven-inch of their own.
