Check Out Reviews of Converge, CFCF, Do Make Say Think and More in New Release Tuesday
Published Oct 27, 2009It's New Release Tuesday once again, and as is our Exclaim! tradition, we've lined up the week's top offerings in our Recently Reviewed section.
First up, hardcore heroes Converge have returned from the studio with their Exclaim!-approved album Axe to Fall, which the band calls their "collaborative piece" because of a number of high-profile guest spots from their contemporaries. Then we have Toronto post-rock instrumentalists Do Make Say Think's new album Other Truths, which may be their most epic and ambitious record to date, despite only being four tracks long. In a somewhat similar vein, instrumental post-metal band Pelican have returned with their layered new album What We All Come to Need.
El Perro Del Mar's Love Is Not Pop has finally hit North American shores and is a return to form for the Swedish pop songstress. Former Clap Your Hands Say Yeah front-man Alec Ounsworth has struck out on his own with his swaggering album Mo Beauty and indie-romance duo Swell Season are back from their Oscar victory with their full-bodied new album Strict Joy.
It's been a strong week in the world of electronic music as well, with Montreal's CFCF finally releasing his outgoing debut Continent, 2562 returning with the loose, multi-genre influenced Unbalance and acclaimed electronic duo DJ /rupture & Matt Shadetek coming back into the spotlight with their excellent new album Solar Life Raft.
