There are some great music releases this week that I've been looking forward to for a while and I hope everyone will give them a bit of a listen. Rilo Kiley and Telekinesis are bands that I've had quite a bit of exposure to over the years, while The Besnard Lakes are a band that I've heard before, but haven't really given them the attention they deserve. I think I'll have to change that with their new album.
Rilo Kiley will be releasing a compilation of rarities and previously unreleased recordings on an album called, Rkives. This will be the first we’ve heard from them since 2007’s, Under the Blacklight, and as a fan of pretty much anything Jenny Lewis touches I have to say that I’m looking forward to hearing these songs. If you haven’t heard any of their past releases, I’d highly recommend checking out the samples we have up on BestBuy.com from their previous albums. Rkives will also be releasing on vinyl later this month.
Telekinesis will be releasing their third album, Dormarion. I first heard this one-man-band with the 2011 release, 12 Desperate Straight Lines, and just couldn’t get enough of songs like “Car Crash” and “Gotta Get It Right Now.” From what I’ve heard with the new song, “Ghosts and Creatures,” the new album may be a bit different from the short and infectiously upbeat songs from the last album, but I’ll certainly be giving it a listen. Dormarion will also be released on vinyl, and go ahead and check out the samples from some previous albums here.
The Besnard Lakes will be releasing their fourth album, Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO. This Canadian atmospheric rock band has received a lot of praise from critics in their home country, and even had two of their albums nominated for the Polaris Music Prize. If you’re not familiar with what that award represents or any of the The Besnard Lakes’ music, I highly recommend you check it out and also take a listen to the samples of their second album, The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse. You can view their other releases on BestBuy.com here.
It’s rare when there aren’t any movie releases that I’m really looking forward to, but that’s kind of where I’m at for this week. Instead of looking at 4/2 releases, let’s look ahead to 4/16 when Django Unchained will be released. We’ve still got some great pre-order exclusives available, which include the ability to watch the movie early! You can find additional details about these offers here.
What is everybody else looking forward to? Did anyone pick up any other great new releases recently?
