Get Reviews of Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Luke Lalonde, Neurosis and More in This Week's New Release Roundup
Published Oct 30, 2012November is just around the corner, and there's once again a big pile of new releases out there for your listening pleasure. Make sure you take a look at Exclaim!'s Recently Reviewed section to see what our writers thought of all the latest releases, and you can start by checking out these highlights in our New Release Roundup.
To kick things off, Canadian rock legend Neil Young and American rock band Crazy Horse have released their latest collaborative work, Psychedelic Pill. Aptly titled, this record is a reflection on Young's recent turn to sobriety for the first time in his adult life, as well as a coming to terms with his old age and the regrets that follow it.
Featuring the united skills of producers Machinedrum and Jimmy Edgar, Jets have released their debut self-titled EP. With Machinedrum's deep bass and unpredictable drums, as well as Edgar's dreamy synths and vocal samples, the Jets EP has earned Exclaim!'s Mark of Excellence. Also, Born Ruffians frontman Luke Lalonde has taken all of his ideas that stray too far from the Born Ruffians sound to bring us his debut solo record, Rhythymnals.
In Aggressive Tendencies, releasing their first record since the death of their original vocalist Makh Daniels in 2010, metallic hardcore punk band Early Graves have dropped the blisteringly fast and brutally heavy Red Horse, earning them the Mark of Excellence. Lastly, but most certainly not least, the genre-defining Neurosis have released their 10th studio record, Honor Found in Decay. This time the band display a certain kind of reserve and maturity while still maintaining their usual intense, crushing sound.
