Check Out Reviews of PJ Harvey, Mogwai, Beans, Neuraxis and More in This Week's New Release Roundup
Published Feb 15, 2011To coincide with the glimmers of hope that winter may soon be done, Exclaim! is here with reviews of this week's new releases. Here are just a few of the write-ups included in our Recently Reviewed section.
The eclectic PJ Harvey is back with her first album in three years, Let England Shake, which has earned the Exclaim! Mark of Excellence. Check out our review and see why this may just be her best effort of the decade.
Scottish post-rock heroes Mogwai have also received the Exclaim! Mark of Excellence with their seventh album, Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will, while dramatic Newfoundland six-piece Hey Rosetta! are back with their third LP, Seeds.
Take a time machine back to the '90s because London, England's Yuck have produced a convincing blend of fuzz-driven indie rock that could pass as a supergroup composed of members from the Lemonheads, Dinosaur Jr., Flop and Teenage Fanclub. And Nicolas Jaar has unveiled another slab of downtempo experimental music with Space Is Only Noise.
Pop punk vets Chixdiggit have returned revitalized and reinvigorated with Safeways Here We Come. Weird-styled hip-hopper Beans brings some high-concept lyrical form with End It All. And Montreal technical death metal titans Neuraxis have earned the Exclaim! Mark of Excellence with Asylon.
Finally, Cowboy Junkies are paying tribute to the late Vic Chesnutt with their latest release, Demons: A Tribute to Vic Chesnutt, which features 11 Chesnutt covers.
