Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Broken Social Scene To The Flaming Lips

It’s Tuesday, and you know what that mean, folks: new jams! This week, The Flaming Lips spearhead a super group magic carpet ride across the “Dark Side Of The Moon.” The New Pornographers are back and keeping it together; The Hold Steady hangs in there; Broken Social Scene trims down and turns that motha out; Josh Ritter strums his heart strings; Greg Laswell takes a bow; and Toni Braxton’s record isn’t as toe-up as her crotch. So, get those headphones on, girl, ’cause there’s some major auditory awesomeness after the jump!
