Spring must be right around the corner! Not because it’s distressingly warm outside for February (the planet is dying) but because the releases every week are amazing! The long awaited Dirty Projectors record is finally out and we cannot wait to nod to it plaintively and talk about how “deeeeeeep” it is, man. In addition, indie legends Xiu Xiu, Los Campesinos! and Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah are out – meaning that your 2008 hipster themed party is about to get lit. Newer arrival, Vagabon are on hand to get things a little more lovely and emotional. So get listening because this week will surely go down as a banner release week of the year.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – The tourist
Vagabon – Infinite Worlds
Xiu Xiu – Forget
Los Campesinos! – Sick Scenes
Thundercat – Drunk
