Today's new music releases round out a great month of music that saw debuts from Haim, Deap Vally, Flagship, and Lorde as well as releases from Sleigh Bells, Pearl Jam, Cage the Elephant, and Justin Timberlake. While today's releases don't overwhelm in quantity, they do it quality. First up, Arcade Fire...
Arcade Fire's Reflektor is easily this week's most anticipated new release. Whether you've been listening to the single of the eponymous name on repeat or still scrubbing the glitter off from their two-night warehouse show during New York's CMJ, there's no better album with which to kick off your new music listening. The two disc album boasts some of the band's most lengthy tracks with only three ending before the four minute mark and the closing track surpassing 11. Stream the album below and take a minute to watch SNL's new game show with Tina Fey, "New Cast Member or Arcade Fire." So far, Arcade Fire only have dates announced for New Zealand and Australia in January.
Also out today is CSFLY Remixes by Mount Kimbie. CSFLY, for non die-hard fans, stands for Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, their album released earlier this year. The four-track release features remixes by Kyle Hall, DJ Koze, Lee Gamble, and Oneman with Jeremiah Jae. Mount Kimbie will embark on a European Tour November and December.
Quirky emo-rockers, Hellogoodbye continue their indie pop-punk with Everything is Debatable, officially marking the band's decade-long career. Put on your dancing shoes and head out to one of their North American tour dates.
The Austin trio White Denim released Corsicana Lemonade today, which was produced with the help of Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy. They're on tour through January, including stops at the three locations of Australia's New Year's Eve event Falls Festival.
Rounding out today's notable new releases is seven-piece outfit from Cardiff, Wales, Los Campesinos!. No Blues is the group's fifth release. Catch their indie punk style and assortment of instruments on tour in the UK this December and North America beginning in January.
