  Afghan Whigs
Do To The Beast
(Sub Pop)

 
  Do To The Beast is the first new album by The Afghan Whigs in over a decade and a half. Founded in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1988, the band has long stood out from its peers, with their savage blend of hard rock, classic soul, and frontman Greg Dulli's searing angst and obsessions. (Double-vinyl version plays at 45 rpm for maximum fidelity.)  
  Arc Iris
Self-Titled
(Anti)

 
  Arc Iris is the orchestral pop project of Jocie Adams, a former core member of The Low Anthem. The singer and multi-instrumentalist formed the collective to present her ambitious new songs. The band includes a collective of four musicians plus Jocie with additional players frequently joining to expand the sound further, to create their wild exploration of all kinds of musical styles - jazz, prog rock, blues, country, folk, and classical.  
  Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks
Welcome To The Slasher House
(Domino)

 
  A group of three hippies on a road trip through the backwaters of 2013's rural music scene fall prey to a murderous cannibalistic band, including a leather-masked, guitar-wielding Avey Tare (Himself, Animal Collective), his knife-wielding keyboard player Angel Deradoorian (Deradoorian, Dirty Projectors), and their cannibal chief drummer and decaying grandfather Jeremy Hyman (Ponytail, Boredoms, Dan Deacon).  
  Band Of Skulls
Himalayan
(Electric Blues)

 
  “The UK’s answer to The Black Keys veers towards an evolved sound for this record. They’re not reinventing themselves – don’t expect any Mariachi-trance or doom-hop – but there is grandeur, a largeness that they parade around on their escapades – is that their newfound knob-twiddler Nick Launay (Arcade Fire, Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) making himself known? Everything’s firm, confident and collected – it may lumber, but each kick beat and chord strum is definitely defiant. This is an album that struts with a dead-eyed glint; it’s an album that keeps a sinister streak simmering near the surface.” – The Line Of Best Fit  
  Barnett, Courtney
Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas
(Mom & Pop)

 
  “Courtney Barnett makes jangly, rumpled indie-rock in the vein of Pavement or early Dylan: Wordy, wry, and anchored by the kind of poetic clarity you can only get from looking at the world askew.” – Rolling Stone  
  Baseball Project
Third
(Yep Roc)

 
  Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Scott McCaughey (Minus 5), Mike Mills (R.E.M.), Linda Pitmon and Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate) continue their tradition of inspired rock songs that provide passionately funny and sarcastically reverent commentary on the sport of baseball.  
  Belle Brigade
Just Because
(Ato)

 
  Founded by siblings Barbara and Ethan Gruska, The Belle Brigade's music is artfully arranged, with enticing melodies and pop harmonies, fueled by the interplay of driving rhythms between Barbara's drums and Ethan's guitars. Both are gifted songwriters finding inspiration in the works of Peter Gabriel, John Lennon, The Beach Boys, Sly Stone, Harry Nilsson and countless others.  
  Big Scary
Not Art
(Barsuk)

 
  The story of Big Scary begins in Melbourne, Australia, where duo Tom Iansek and Jo Syme, armed with just acoustic guitars and egg shakers, started playing songs together in the living room of Syme’s parents’ house, gradually working up to a bolder, more expansive sound by incorporating electric guitars, drums, synths and piano. What began as a few rainy day acoustic ballads in their first incarnation soon grew, and before long, the newly named Big Scary were writing anything they pleased -- fuzzed-out garage rock; piano-led pop; intricate, pastoral instrumentals -- each imbued with an effortless pop sensibility and lightness of touch that would quickly see the duo attract a strong following in their home country.  
  Bikini Kill
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah EP
(Bikini Kill)

 
  This is a reissue of BIKINI KILL’s second EP, Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. It was recorded in 1992 with TIM GREEN (Nation of Ulysses) at The Embassy—a group-house in Washington, D.C.—and was the first Bikini Kill release to feature the band’s song, “Rebel Girl.” Originally a split EP with the Brighton, UK-based band, Huggy Bear, the B-side now features seven previously unreleased Bikini Kill songs drawn from era-appropriate live shows and practice tapes. The artwork has also been updated to include archival photos and liner notes from the Bratmobile’s ERIN SMITH, Comet Gain’s DAVID FECK, and the members of Bikini Kill.
