New Releases Tuesday - 6/26

Balún - Something Comes Our Way (Brilliante)
Who doesn't love Puerto Rican acoustic electro pop? In all seriousness, this is actually pretty damn good. 3hive calls them "Puerto Rico's answer to Múm."

Dirty On Purpose - Hallelujah Sirens (North Street)

Debut full-length from the Brooklyn indie-rockers.

Dr. Octagon - The Return of Dr. Octagon (OCD International)
It's been 10 years since Kool Keith dropped his legendary Dr. Octagonecologyst record, but now the good doctor is back and taking appointments.

Four Tet - DJ KiCKS (K7)
Kieren Hebden is the latest to mix it up for the always solid DJ KiCKS series. Includes tracks from Akufen, Animal Collective, Stereolab, Mad Villain and So Solid Crew, as well as Hebden himself.

Grant Lee Phillips - nineteeneightees (Rounder)
I don't know why, but I've been totally obsessed with Grant Lee Buffalo for the past couple of years, despite the fact that they disbanded over 7 years ago. One these days I'll catch up with some of Grant's solo work, but for now I'm totally digging his collection of choice '80s covers from the likes of Joy Division, Echo and the Bunnymen, the Psychedelic Furs, REM and the Cure. I guess I see why I'm such a big fan of Grant...we have the same taste in music.
