New Releases Tuesday (4/18)

Spank Rock - YoYoYoYoYo (Big Dada) For an act that had a spazzy hit single titled "Put That Pussy On Me," it would be easy to discount these guys as novelty club track one-hit-wonders. However, this album is actually quite solid and it's not all 140BPM booty house. There's still plenty of raunch, but overall YoYoYoYoYo is a relatively subdued hip-hop album that you don't have to be crunked up at 3am to enjoy. Of course, the emphasis here is on relatively, as there's still plenty of Baltimore club flava here to move the dance floor...especially on tracks like "Bump" and "Rick Rubin."

Richard Butler - Richard Butler (Koch)
Not to be confused with the former guitarist from Suede, Bernard Butler, the voice of the Psychedelic Furs and Love Split Love, Richard Butler releases his debut solo album.

Erasure - Union Street (Mute)
Hmmm...a new organic acoustic CD from a band synonymous with the electronic synthesizer sound of the 80s? Most likely a "true fans only" release.

Also this week...

Cities - Cities (Yep Roc)
Dresden Dolls - Yes, Virginia (Roadrunner)
Elefant - Black Magic Show (Kemado)
Fiery Furnaces - Bitter Tea (Fat Possum)
Frog Eyes - Bloody Hand (Absolutley Kosher)
Lovely Feathers - Hind Hind Legs (Equator)
Secret Machines - Ten Silver Drops (Reprise)
Stereophonics - Live From Dakota (Vox Populi)
