New Releases Tuesday - 5/22

The Walkmen - Hundred Miles Off (Record Collection)
Album number three from the NYC indie rockers. Nothing here as powerful as "The Rat" or as catchy as "We've Been Had," but lead single "Louisiana"(recorded pre-Katrina) should give them another run at the top of the college rock charts this year.

Mission of Burma - The Obliterati (Matador)
The second studio album since their reunion in 2004 (and only third of full-length of their career), these 80's post-punk cult heroes have now produced as much material in the new millenium as they did in their original heyday.

Scott Walker - The Drift (4AD)
First record in 9 years from the legendary enigmatic avant-pop crooner.

Also this week...

Murder By Death - In Boca Al Lupo (Tent Show)
Don Peris Go When The Morning Shineth (Badman)
Ocrilim Anoint (I & Ear)
Osaka Popstar - Osaka Popstar and The American Legends of Punk (Rykodisc)
Phoenix It's Never Been Like That (Astralwerks)
Tilly & the Wall - Bottoms of Barrels (Team Love)
Vetiver - To Find Me Gone Dicristina (Stair Builders)
