What's New On Vinyl Tuesday!
This week's Vinyl Tuesday releases include an early drop of the vinyl edition of the new Japandroids album, Near To The Wild Heart Of Life (CD/Digital out this Friday). The 'droids third album is said to be a bit of a departure; a recent Pitchfork article discusses the prominent use of acoustic guitars, some synthesizers, and even the inclusion of a shoegaze ballad into the mix. Singer/guitarist Brian King explains, "We're removing all the self-imposed rules that led to the songs and the sound of our whole career up until now."
Another special Vinyl Tuesday release dropping tomorrow is the first-ever vinyl release of Friday Night Is Killing Me, the 1993 debut release of Bash & Pop, Tommy Stinson's post-Replacements band. The band broke up after this album, but reformed this year and released the follow-up, Anything Could Happen, just last Friday. Grab 'em both!
