New El-P album dropping a week after the Killer Mike album. I just spent all my money on the Killer Mike and I-Self Devine preorders. Now I'm going to have to go rob someone else and buy that album too.
Nicolas Jaar - Space is Only Noise (if you are into slightly eerie electronic music, this will probably be something you like.)
The Shins - Port of Morrow - (As a big Shins fan, I loved it, but I'm hardly unbiased.)
Julia Holter - Eckstasis - Very interesting. A little retro, a little weird, I liked it. Made me think of a more relaxed version of Bjork, just a bit.
Lotus Plaza - Spooky Action at a Distance - My favorite of the bunch, reminds me a lot of Deerhunter, so if you like Deerhunter ...
Norah Jones - Bitter Little Pills - I checked out the streaming preview of the album, based on Danger Mouse's involvement and the strength of the lead single "Happy Pills" but sadly the album is just okay. Maybe I'll give it another listen see if it grows on me, but aside from a few standout tracks ... meh.
