New Releases Tuesday (4/4)

Irving - Death in the Garden Blood on the Flowers (Eenie Meenie Records) Sophomore release from RFSL favorites Irving. The LA Times sez: "This could be the Beach Boys scoring a Hitchcock movie." Look for an interview with the band on the site this Friday and our own review of this already well-worn cd shortly thereafter.

Morrissey - Ringleader of the Tormentors (Sanctuary)
The California sun seems to be reinvigorating Morrissey as he's back with yet another new album of Mozzy mope anthems. Recorded by Tony Visconti, this one's supposed to "rock" more than previous releases and the press for the album even claims that it's "the most musically disturbing record Morrissey has made since Meat is Murder."

The Flaming Lips - At War with the Mystics (Warner Bros.)
Another much-heralded "return to the rock" from a veteran act, At War...is the Lips' 12th record and first in four years. I heard this record in its entirety in February, but it was like at 5am at a friend of a friend's house after a long night of drinking. It seemed like it sounded pretty cool?? But let's be honest, at this point Wayne Coyne could cut of record of himself belching the alphabet and I'd still probably buy it, so I'm probably not the best judge of this record.

Also this week...

American Princes - Less and Less (Yep Roc)
Rahim - Ideal Lives (French Kiss)
Rainer Maria - Catastrophe Keeps Us Together (Grunion)
Soul Position - Things Go Better with RJ and Al (Rhymesayers)
Subtle - Wishingbone (Lex)
Various Artists - The DFA Remixes: Chapter One (DFA/Astralwerks)
