New Music Monday: 2 August


Arcade Fire‘s much anticipated third full length, “The Suburbs“, is due for official release tomorrow, so don’t just sit there, order! I’ve managed to stream the album at least a dozen times by now, and I can honestly all the hype the band attracted on blogs and reviews is more than justified. The Suburbs has moments where it’s as intense as Funeral or as uplifting as Neon Bible, but at another level – not necessarily up or down. It’s just different, maybe a better word would be matured. One of 2010’s top ten without a doubt.

Although the number of releases this week is a bit dim and, honestly, overshadowed by the above colossus, I can definitely recommend quite a few new records. Wavves third installment in his surfer noise-punk extravaganza is a definite recommend, as well as  the new records from the likes of Katie Melua, Ryan Star, Autolux, Los Lobos or The Magic Numbers.
