Another great week for album releases, but this time of the year, that’s almost a given. Everyone is coming out the gate swinging in 2013, so check out our list of notable releases below, and for a little taste of what each entails, be sure to give our New Album Release playlist over at a listen.

Frightened Rabbit – Pedestrian Verse

I’ve been a huge fan of these Scottish indie rockers for years now, and after listening to this new album, I gotta say they are just getting better with age. In addition to checking out the album, I highly recommend you pick up tickets to their show at The Fonda on March 13th as these songs are MADE for singing along.

Jim James – Regions Of Light and Sounds Of God

My Morning Jacket’s frontman releases his solo debut today, and I’m interested to see how this one compares to the band’s releases. Like Frightened Rabbit, James will also be swinging by The Fonda Theatre in LA, so if you’re interested in hearing these solo tracks performed live, pick up your tickets for the May 11th date now.

Eels – Wonderful, Glorious

This Mark Oliver Everett project has been releasing albums regularly since 1996, and today they’re at it again with their tenth studio effort, Wonderful, Glorious. If your only experience with Eels is via “Novocaine for the Soul” and the slew of tracks they’ve contributed to various film and television soundtracks, today’s a great day to get to know this indie rock band a little better.
