Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week of October 7th 2008


  • Rachel Yamagata Elephants…Teeth Sinking Into Heart
    The folksy singer likes to tell it low and slow with a piano, but upbeat tracks like “Sidedish Friend” have her even more upset. We totes understand, friends with benefits throw us all off our game!
  • The Pretenders Break Up The Concrete
    Chrissie Hynde, one of a select group of women who truly bring glory to the electric guitar, has lead her Pretenders to their first new record since their Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame induction. With its shimmy inducing title track and truisms set to twang, just like everything Chrissie touches, this album is sure to turn gold.
  • Antony and The Johnsons Another World
    Antony Hegarty, hand picked by Lou Reed, has made a second release with his Johnsons. The follow up to his Mercury Prize winning debut, “I Am A Bird Now,” the sexually ambiguous siren has crafted yet another delicately gorgeous tome of laments. He and his voice are truly one of a kind. His songs are so intimate and to know him is to love him! Fans, this EP is just a sweet treat to tide you over it his sophomore record, “The Crying Light,” is released in January.
  • Oasis Dig Out Your Soul
    The brothers from Manchester aren’t the second coming of the Beatles, but they’ve made it to their seventh record. If you loved “Champagne Supernova,” then these stars still got it.
  • Deerhoof Offend Maggie
    The indie kids rock another whimsical record with endearing enthusiasm. Maggie’s everywhere will love it!
  • Margot and the Nuclear So So’s Not Animal
    Arguably the best band name of all time, it may be a misnomer since their tracks are hardly explosive. Actually, the band takes their name from Wes Anderson’s character, Margot Tenenbaum, and their songs are just as elegantly subdued.
