New releases (of interest): March 1st

Alexander – S/T:  Highly anticipated solo debut of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros front-man Alex Ebert.  You all know Ed & the Zeros for their 2009 debut album with tracks “40 Day Dream”, “Janglin” and “Home” blasting on car commercials and the NBC Thursday night line-up.  Alex’s album is a little more slimmed down (not as much of the travelling-family-band feel), sparse, and subdued at times, but still a treat.  Still has a sufficient amount of camp-fire side folksiness but with some more odd, futuristic flares. 

The Rural Alberta Advantage – Departing:  Sophomore release from this Canadian band with a vicious drummer.  The lead vocalist conjures up thoughts of Alec Ounsworth from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.  Their debut was fantastic, so let’s hope that RAA’s 2nd release is much more impressive than CYHSY’s

Lykke Li – Wounded Rhymes:  Second release from another always odd Swedish act. 

Devotchka – 100 Lovers:  Eastern-european, American-west-influenced, Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack stars release their 5th album.

Dum Dum Girls – He Gets Me High EP:  Bonus material coming off of the indie girl group’s debut album.
