New Releases Tuesday - 5/30

Not surprisingly, not much going on this New Releases Tuesday following the long holiday weekend. However, there are a couple of albums you may want to check out:

Boards of Canada - Trans Canada Highway [EP] (Warp)
As if there wasn't enough misconception about these guys being from the Great White North (they're actually Scottish), they've now named their latest release after a major highway there.
However, according to AllMusic, this is a "mini-concept LP" inspired by an actual trip by the Scottish brother duo in which they travelled from St. John's, Newfoundland to Victoria, B.C.
This six song EP includes the previously released album track "Dayvan Cowboy" plus four new tracks and a Dayvan remix.

Peeping Tom - S/T (Ipecac)
Yet another new project from Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk, Mr. Bungle, etc.), this album is reported to be have been six years in the making. Featuring collaborations from Amon Tobin, Bebel Gilberto, Massive Attack, Kool Keith and even Norah Jones, word on the street is that this is Patton's most accessible work since Faith No More.

Also this week...

Les Claypool - Of Whales and Woe (Prawn Song)
Herbert - Scale (K7)
Mikaela's Fiend - We Can Driving Machine (Strictly Amateur)
Modern Machines - Take It From Somebody (Dirtnap Records)
