Deadlands - self titled

Deadlands' self-titled debut album, Deadlands, is the result of six months of Thursdays and the occasional Friday night. This is very much a rock and roll record. One foot firmly entrenched in murder ballad blues and the other dangling off the top of a burning office building; Deadlands weaves third person tales of deceit, insanity, and betrayal. And guess what? The guy always dies at the end. Always. You can download the track Never There and purchase a copy at the label webpage.
Fucked Up - David Comes To Life (Matador)

This is an epic 18 tracks of hard driving indie rock, full of soothing spacious female vocals colliding with the heavily gruff lead vocals of Pink Eye. Releasing a steady stream of albums, their music is leaving the hardcore punk behind and becoming more intricate. At 76 minutes long, this is the best bargain per minute of music so far this summer. Strange paradox for this band - a band and a front man, both great at what they do, sometimes it's just too bad they're in the same band. Pay attention to everyone's side projects.

Last Good Tooth - The Meeting Was A Success (self released)

"Everybody's older/ than my dad's new girlfriend./ She's a doctor / in divorcing." The opening lines on Last Good Tooth's debut EP, The Meeting Was A Success, capture the essence of the record: a cynical but brutally honest take on life. Featuring the sharp lyrics of Penn Sultan and the effective fiddling of Alex Spoto, the album is darkly-tinged folk, opting for cringe over charm - the perfect soundtrack for our increasingly frightening world.

Paul McCartney - McCartney II deluxe reissue (Hear)

McCartney II, recorded at home in 1980, has been remastered with a second disc of outtakes, and includes amazing gatefold packaging. As for the music, there's the big hit song, "Coming Up" and plenty of synthy weirdness on 'Temporary Secretary'. There's also the electronic instrumental 'Front Parlour' and goofy synth and handclaps on 'Frozen Jap'. This also offers it's fair share of ballads. 'Waterfalls' is a sterile ode to heartbreak, and 'One of These Days' is a sterile ode to all previous sterile odes. This is quirky and experimental, a combination of dramatic depths and light breezy electronic pop, peculiar even by post-Beatle standards. An interesting time capsule into what McCartney was up to at his farm house in 1979.

David Tessier - Taurus EP

David Tessier - Taurus EP (75orLess Records)

For Rhode Island followers of David Tessier's former collaborations and output, Taurus presents the joyously familiar: this EP breathes new life into Pipeline Drive's riff-fest. Catapult reminds us that there was a time in the 80's when it was perfectly acceptable to marry heavy guitars, synths and crooning vocals. It is Release Me that stars, however, and suggests that Radiohead can retire now - Tessier has it covered with a strong dose of 70's pomp and grace to spare. Taurus is a prime medley of Tessier's talents, whetting the appetite for more.
