So July 11 (tomorrow) is one of the best new-release days of the year so far, with new records from Sufjan, Shapes & Sizes, Thom Yorke, Cut Chemist, Oneida, James Figurine, and more finally hitting the shelves, only weeks (or in some cases, months) after they've hit your ipod. I'm a fan of all of the aforementioned albums, but of all tomorrow's new releases, this one has surprisingly been getting the most play around gorilla vs. bear headquarters:
With the advent of all these new-fangled internet web-logs, we sometimes lose track of when an album is actually coming out, and tend to jump the gun with our praise of a record; in turn, it's sometimes sort of forgotten by the time it actually comes out. This is an understandable but regrettable consequence of the way music is consumed these days.
Well, on that note, I know we've mentioned Brasil's Cansei De Ser Sexy here numerous times, but it really is such a fun record that I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that the band's debut LP finally comes out tomorrow via Sub Pop. Here are a few different free/legal mp3 versions of the album's lead single, "Let's Make Love and Listen Death From Above":
