New Music Tuesday

It's Tuesday, so that means a bunch of new releases in stores today. Here are a few of note; Barry Adamson's Back To The Cat, Cinematic Orchestra's Live At The Royal Albert Hall, Elbow's The Seldom Seen Kid, Lyrics Born's Everywhere At Once, Tokyo Police Club's Elephant Shell, and expanded remasters of The Replacements' Sorry Ma Forgot To Take Out the Trash, Stink, Hootenanny and Let It Be. Also out today in the US is the excellent sophomore record by Young Knives. Called Superabundance, it is the follow up to Voices Of Animals & Men, a memorable collection of distinctly British and slightly odd post-punk. The follow up picks up where they left off, but on a grander, more experimental scale. The fab vocal harmonising remains intact, as do the quirky riffs. The subject matter is often bleak, a reflection of the world today, but it is a captivating listen. Turn Tail is an epic, full of strings and menace.
