New Releases Tuesday (3/21)

Liars - Drums Not Dead (Mute) After what many considered to be a sophomore slump with the odd They Were Wrong, So We Drowned, the New York-based band moved to Berlin and are now back with what many are calling their best album yet, worthy of a sweet 9.0 on the 'Fork.

The Editors - The Back Room (Kitchenware)
Yet another band of late that comps the sound of classic Joy Division, though at least these guys are British (I'm looking at you, She Wants Revenge) and actually hail from Manchester.

Loose Fur - Born Again in the USA (Drag City)
The Tweedy/O'Rourke/Kotche side project returns with another batch of fine tunes for Drag City. Amazon sez, "originally seen as Jeff Tweedy's noisier outlet, it's arguably as tuneful as his main band's most recent releases."

Also this week...

Richard Ashcroft - Keys to the World (Virgin)
Howe Gelb - Sno Angel Like You (Thrill Jockey)
Madlib - Beat Konducta Vol. 1-2 (Stones Throw)
Mates of State - Bring it Back (Barsuk)
Ms. John Soda - Notes and the Like (Morr Music)
Gary Numan - Jagged (Metropolis)
Quasi - When the Going Gets Dark (Touch & Go)
Josh Rouse - Subtitulo (Nettwerk)
