Dig Into Fresh Reviews of Augury, Robert Pollard, Six Finger Satellite and More in New Release Tuesday
Published Aug 11, 2009Friday might be the day of the week that gets all the glory but when it comes to getting the lowdown on new music, that's what Tuesdays are for, right? So here we have yet another edition of our New Release Tuesday.
Our top picks of the week include the long-awaited sophomore album from Montreal progressive death metal masters Augury. Five years in the making, Fragmentary Evidence proves that the time fans waited in anticipation was indeed well spent. This week, Exclaim! also highly recommends you take a gander at the latest solo project from Sam Champion front-man Sean Bones, who in his off time from the indie rock troupe seems to have developed a real knack for reggae.
Former Guided By Voices front-man Robert Pollard continues to prove he's a workaholic with his latest release, Elephant Jokes. Recently reformed progressive metalheads Cave In show off a little genre-mashing schizophrenia on their new four-song EP.
Eight years after it was recorded, Six Finger Satellite's second album, Half Control, is finally seeing the light of day, although it might not meet the expectations you had for it. And finally, UK trio Golden Silvers promise a True Romance, but unfortunately deliver a debut that fails to stray from the Britpop framework that came before it.
Still doubting that Tuesdays should get more love? Check out the Exclaim! Recently Reviewed section for more of this week's album reviews, or pop over to our New and Forthcoming Release Dates for a preview of things to come.
