New Music Tuesday

Today is a BIG day for new music releases. I will break it down alphabetically, starting with The Breeders' Mountain Battles. I love the Deal sisters, and I love this record's scruffy, scrappy indie rock. Plenty of good songs, with one sung in German and another in Spanish. Who needs The Pixies? Also out today; Clinic's Do It, Cut Copy's In Ghost Colours and Dark Meat's Universal Indians (see here for more). Foals' Antidotes also hits shelves today. The Brits recorded in NYC with TV On The Radio's David Sitek as producer, and the result is a great blend of neo post-punk and NYC art rock. There are nice production touches - electronics and horns, and plenty to get you herky-jerking. A couple more records of note; Meat Beat Manifesto's Autoimmune is a return to the kind of speaker shattering beats and frequencies he practised on 99% & Satyricon, two of my fave MBM albums. I've posted a couple of tracks already. Finally, blogger faves of a couple years ago and Minneapolis' own Tapes 'n' Tapes return with Walk It Off, produced by the ace Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips/Mercury Rev). Happy shopping...
The Breeders - Walk It off
