The Killers, Pink, The Rubens, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Grizzly Bear lead a big week in new releases.
On a more indie folk tip, Grizzly Bear offer their highly-anticipated Shields and Band Of Horses have Mirage Rock. And legends Dinosaur Jr. offer their third album since their reformation, I Bet On Sky.
We have new albums from boogie icons ZZ Top, La Futura, and roots-rockers The Avett Brothers in The Carpenter.
Portland experimentalists Menomena drop Moms and atmospheric electro producer How To Dress Well has Total Loss.
For the punks, we have the self-titled album from UK hardcore rockers Gallows and the twelfth studio album from pop-punk legends NOFX Self-Entitled, as well as the debut album Misadventures from NY melodic hardcore act Such Gold.
Currently number one on the iTunes jazz chart, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy have rattle Them Bones, and local speakeasy jazz lass Mojo Juju has a self-titled album.
Former American Idol contestant Casey Abrams has his self-titled debut, and Kix Brooks (of Brooks and Dunn) has his first solo album New to This Town.
Plus there’s a timely re-release of Regurgitator’s Unit and a five-disc Andre Rieu retrospective.
