Published Jul 10, 2012As always, another Tuesday means another crop of new albums for you to sink your teeth into, and our Recently Reviewed section has details on many of the releases out this week. You can head over there to read up on all Exclaim!'s latest reviews and check out some highlights below.
To start off, folk legend Woody Guthrie is commemorated with the three-disc compilation box set, Woody at 100. The release features a selection of the iconic Oklahoman songwriter's works, some of them previously unreleased, as well as an illustrated coffee table book about his influence on the likes of Bob Dylan and others throughout the years.
Next up, long-running post-rock trio Mission of Burma return with their sixth studio album (and their fourth since reuniting in 2002), entitled Unsound, proving their continued viability three decades into their career, while Ghostlimb's Confluence marks the second instalment in the trilogy of hardcore albums by Graf Orlock frontman Justin Smith.
Meanwhile, Toronto-based singer-songwriter Royal Wood expands the scope of his sophisticated love songs on his fourth offering We Were Born to Glory, and Plumes (the duo previously known as Flotilla) continue their fruitful orchestral-pop experimentation on their new self-titled LP, which earned an Exclaim! Mark of Excellence this week.
And lastly, Digits -- the electro-pop moniker of Canada's Alt Altman -- dropped a seven-song EP, Where Do You Belong, melding genre-hopping elements on his fourth release to date.
