New Music Monday: May 3

Quite a few quality releases this week. The obvious standout of the week is Hold Steady‘s new record “Heaven is Whenever“, which aside from our obvious affection for the band is well on par with their previous material, making it a definite recommend!

Forgiveness Rock Record“, Broken Social Scene‘s first record in five years, is also out this week. I’ve been sampling FRR for a few weeks now, since it leaked on the web, and I’ll only say this much –  it’s been worth the wait! Oh, and buy it.

Other highly anticipated releases which I’m sure will make a lot of people happy include “Together” by The New Pornographers, “So Runs The World Away” by Josh Ritter, “Omni” by Minus The Bear, “Diamond Eyes” by Deftones or “The Optimist” by New Young Pony Club.
