Home Is Not Places Nashville rockers The Apache Relay will release their second album, American Nomad, on April 12th via Thirty Tigers. I missed posting this track but it got brought to my attention again. Home Is Not Places is about the home sickness the band feels while on the road. Its an emotional trip, with vigorous and powerful choruses. Look for American Nomad Soon.

Machu Picchu Another track off the Strokes upcoming album, Angles (out next week), hit the net. It’s a bright, seemingly 80’s influenced song. Now that I’ve heard a few of these songs off the album my managed expectations have been met it’s time to get pretty excited for this.
Codeine Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit will be releasing a new album, Here We Rest, come April 12th via Lightning Rod Records. The single off the album, Codeine, is a country twinged track with a similar feeling to its title. It’s a sleepy, slow paced, lazy song thats ambling but really nice to listen to.

PJ Harvey released another video from her album, Let England Shake. The video in question is for the song, The Glorious Land, a little unsafe for the motion sensitive viewers. Enjoy the video and buy Let England Shake
Check out the new video from JBM for song ‘In A Different Time.’ The footage is absolutely gorgeous, it really lends itself to the very personal sounding song. Most of the video appears to be home video footage. A very cool look and a perfect visual for his lush and haunting vocals. More JBM: http://www.jbm-music.com/
Leon Boston based band, Larcenist contacted me recently with a new EP titled, We Become the Hunted, a 5 song delight of the folk/americana influence with the caveat of “if you play it twice it’ll be a LP.” Well, I played it a few more times than that (a dozen or so) and I can say that this is some really gorgeous music being played here. Downtrodden songs about rustic surroundings and small town influences and blue collar people, with sweeping violin string accompaniments make these songs instantly likable and the perfect listen for a quiet gray day. The track…
Check out the strange video for Generationals’ Ten-Twenty-Ten; it looks like something from an early 90’s Television spot. Everything the Generationals have been putting out lately has been something that I’ve really gotten in to. More than interested in hearing what they’ve got coming as soon as their album Actor Castor hits shelves (March 29) on Park the Van Records.
Wake and Be Fine It’s been a long while since Will Sheff and the boys of Okkervil River have released a new album. Fortunately, we’ve got one right on our doorstep as its due out 5/10 via Secretly Canadian. Check out the first single, wake and be fine. What do you think?
I’ve been catching songs from Wolf Gang, the project of 23 year-old London multi-instrumentalist Max McElligott, “Dancing with the Devil” the second single from his forthcoming, Suego Faults (3/21 in UK). But when I see him play acoustic (see back to back) it’s even better. This video of a stripped back version of Max & the band’s single is flipping fantastic. Couldn’t be more excited for this album.
