New Releases: Exitmusic, Band of Horses, Beirut, Fiery Furnaces, & More

Local husband/wife duo Exitmusic put their debut album The Decline Of The West out today, and it's full of shambly, circular beats and breathy vocals from a genre probably best described as “other.”

They’re appearing on KXLU 88.9 FM on Wednesday afternoon at five, then playing later that night at Tangier.

On the national front, a few heavy hitters arrive in stores this week. (Then this Wednesday, there’s a digital release for some band called Radiohead...)

Band of Horses – Cease To Begin
Beirut – The Flying Club Cup
Enon - Mirror On You
Fiery Furnaces – Widow City
Jens Lekman – Night Falls Over Kortedala
Scout Niblett - This Fool Can Die Now
The Octopus Project - Hello, Avalanche
Polysics - Polysics or Die
The Raveonettes – Lust Lust Lust
She Wants Revenge – This Is Forever
Spank Rock and Benny Blanco - Bangers and Cash
Sunset Rubdown - Random Spirit Lover

Last week’s releases other than Division Day’s Beartrap Island included albums from The 1900s (not The 1990s, they’re a pretty solid pop band from Chicago), PJ Harvey, Sunset Rubdown, Mick Jagger, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, David Byrne, Cake, Merle Haggard, Sondre Lerche, Nico Vega, Dashboard Confessional, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Grafitti, and more.
