May 9th New Release Part One

Okay so we're gonna be talking about some of the many many new releases coming out today that you should consider looking into if you haven't.

Danielson's new album Ships is being released on Secretly Canadian today. You might know about the band from their dealings with Sufjan Stevens, but they've been around for a long time. In fact, a movie was made about him, called Danielson: A Family Movie. Check out screening dates for that here. Also, in addition to the new album, there are three limited 7"s out too. Wow, talk about prolific.

Check out Danielson's tourdates here. He's playing in Denton at Rubber Gloves, so maybe I'll be going to that.

Grandaddy's last hurrah Just Like the Fambly Cat comes out today. The band's calling it quits with this album, not sure if they're touring behind it or not. I've never really been into these guys, but this album soun ds a better than what I'd cornered them as.

If you're in the Dallas area, Jason Lytle, the creative force behind Grandaddy will be doing an instore at Good Records at 9 PM with former Grandaddy member Aaron Burtch, but if you show up at 7 PM, you can get some grub too! Check it out. If you're not in Dallas, maybe you can check Lytle at another record store:
May 17- New York, NY - Other Music @ 8PM
May 19- Seattle,WA - Easy Street (Queen Anne) @ 7PM
May 20-San Francisco, CA - Amoeba Music @ 5PM
May 21-Sacramento, CA - The Beat @ 2PM

You don't need an introduction to the Arctic Monkeys, but they have a DVD single coming out for "When the Sun Goes Down" called Scummy Man. Apparently it's more like a film and less like a music video or something:

Domino Records commissioned Warp Films to produce the short films. Mark Herbert approached Paul Fraser to write a script inspired by the song and then in consultation with the band, the bands management and Domino they collectively agreed to make the film and then use footage from the film for the video for "When the Sun Goes Down". It is shot on super 16mm by award winning Director of Photography Danny Cohen (My Wrongs, Dead Mans Shoes, This Is England, Creep).

Sounds pretty interesting. They're touring the US this summer too, so if you're not complaining about the hype, check it out.

Anticipating their new eagerly-awaited album Let's Get Out of This Country, Camera Obscura's new single for the first song off the album, "Lloyd,I'm Ready to Be Heartbroken" on Merge Records. The track is pretty upbeat but still, in true Camera Obscura style, makes you wonder if they're really being happy. Anyway I think this album might be able to help them get out from under the "Sounds Like Their Name Should Be Belle & Sebastian Jr Hahaha" tag.

Buy the single OR buy it with the album for $18 (but get the single now).

Danielson-Did I Step On Your Trumpet?
Grandaddy-Jeez Louise
Camera Obscura-Lloyd, I'm Ready to Be Heartbroken

Come back later, there's still more to come!
