Happy Tuesday! New albums out today from several West Coast acts, as well as an all-star compilation bringing the work of a legendary songwriter to life. Check out the ten albums we’re most excited to listen to today below, and be sure to let me know in the comments if we may be missing out on a stellar new release!
Anton Kellner & The Lone Stars – You Were The Fire
If Los Angeles folk-Americana trio Anton Kellner & The Lone Stars’ track “Rebel” has been stuck in your head as much as it has mine, you’ll definitely want to check out their full album today.
Beck – Song Reader
Previously released only as sheet music, Song Reader gets a traditional release today with recordings by an all-star collection of performers including Jack White, Norah Jones, Fun., Jack Black, Jeff Tweedy, and more.
City Tribe – Undertow
This San Francisco indie rock band has been described as “a Vampire Weekend for the West Coast,” so if you’re looking for a new summer soundtrack, check out City Tribe’s beach-pop anthems.
Hooray For Earth – Racy
Co-produced by Chris Coady (Grizzly Bear, Beach House, Future Islands) and band leader Noel Heroux, the follow-up to Hooray For Earth’s 2011 debut is out today, and LA fans can catch their tour kick-off show at The Echo tomorrow night.
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Hypnotic Eye
This is the thirteenth studio album from the legendary American rock band, and if you’re as big of a fan as I am, I’ll be seeing you at The Forum for their tour-wrapping show on October 10th.
