Bob Dylan And The Presets Kick Off This Week’s New Releases

Folk icon Bob Dylan’s 35th album, and The Presets’ third, kick off a solid week in new releases.

Of course, the big news is the already-number-one-on-Amazon-presales album Tempest from living legend Bob Dylan.

But there’s a host of big Australian releases this week, most notably Pacifica from The Presets, which follows their chart-topping, triple-platinum 2008 album Apocalypso.

Then we have the very welcome return of husband-and-wife bluegrass project from Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson, Wreck & Ruin, the third album from local metalcore heroes The Amity Affliction with Chasing Ghosts and the debut for slinky indie synth newcomers Alpine with A Is For Alpine.

There’s also the long-awaited debut for garage-psych rockers King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, titled 12 Bar Bruise.

There’s also albums from Marina Prior (Both Sides Now) and a posthumous album from rock icon Billy Thorpe (Solo: The Last Recordings).

Irish pop-rockers The Script deliver the #3 album and Las Vegas alt-rock online-sensation Imagine Dragons drop their debut Night Visions.

British ironists Pet Shop Boys have Elysium, The xx have their second album Coexist, and there’s a re-release of Barcelona by Freddie Mercury and Spanish soprano Montserrat Caballé.

David Guetta reboots his Nothing But The Beat album in 2.0 form with six new songs featuring big name collaborators like Ne-Yo, Akon, Sia and more. And there’s some arty Scandinavian electro-pop from iamamiwhoami on Kin.

On a more punky tip, Canada’s adored Billy Talent offer Dead Silence and fellow Canucks Propagandhi deliver a far tougher sound on their latest political blast Failed States.

Alt-country champs Calexico release Algiers and folkie Brooklyn-via-Melbourne duo High Highs release an anticipated self-titled EP.

Check out our chats with Marina Prior and Alpine below.
