I Blame You

Obits
Sub Pop

For a debut, this doesn’t sound like a new band, does it? Well, that’s because they aren’t exactly new.

Relapse

Eminem
Shady/Aftermath/Interscope

When you’ve spent the better part of a decade pushing the envelope, once it’s fallen off the table, is anything shocking?

Adult Nights

Wild Light
Star Time International

Wild Light are a band that you probably haven’t heard before — and might never hear again — but they have made an album that is impossible to ignore with Adult Nights.

To Willie

Phosphorescent
Secretly Canadian

You know those couples who sit on the same side of the booth, who talk babytalk in public, who call each other “Ma” and “Pa,” who are a little too much in love?

Jigsaw

Lady Sovereign
MIDGET

I liked Lady Sovereign. Her debut had a lot of the fun and sarcasm that has been a requirement of British imports of late.

Blood

OSI
Inside Out

For the third time, Jim Matheos and Kevin Moore have combined progressive metal and ambient electronica, producing an intriguing genre-bending album.

Thank You Very Quickly

Extra Golden
Thrill Jockey

Why’s it difficult to blend Afrobeat rhythms with guitar-heavy rock?

music-CD-callahan.jpg

Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle

Bill Callahan
Drag City

Smog mastermind Bill Callahan traffics in the same casual baritone speak-singing of latter-day Lou Reed, but adds just enough of Lyle Lovett’s amiable wryness to keep the delivery light on it

S/T

Chico Fellini
Self-released

Despite their name, Chico Fellini’s scope never feels cinematic; rather, their self-titled debut is insular and airless in a way that still manages to conjure plenty of drama in its own right

Blue Bluer Bluest

The Flying Saucers
Self-released

The Flying Saucers may sound like your dad’s garage band, but age clearly doesn’t equal schlock for these bluesy beer-swillers.
