Check Out Reviews of Stephen Malkmus, Library Voices, Game and More in Our New Release Roundup
Published Aug 23, 2011Those aching for new tunes can breathe a sigh of relief, as Tuesday has once again come around. Head over to our Recently Reviewed section for the complete listing of this week's new releases. Here are just some of the highlights.
To start things off is the newest album from Stephen Malkmus, who has been steadily creating new material with the Jicks since Pavement first called it a day. Awarded the Exclaim! Mark of Excellence, fifth album Mirror Traffic has seen the musician recruit the production skills of Beck. Check out the review to see how the extra addition influenced the record's sound.
Cleveland, OH's Sam Goldberg has also been keeping busy with his solo work, participation in Mist and now the most recent release from his Radio People project. If you're a kosmische fan, read our review to see how Hazel fares. The sophomore record for Regina's Library Voices has also hit stores this week. Check out why the literary-infused album earned itself an Exclaim! Mark of Excellence.
Next is the return of psych pop outfit Ganglians. Read all about how moving to a new record label has affected their expansive sound on Still Living. And this week marks the end of a six-year hiatus for 400 Blows with Sickness and Health.
Last but certainly not least is The R.E.D Album from Game. Once again representing the West Coast, the new album features big-name guest vocalists and producers, but were the almost three years of relative silence worth the wait?
