Music!  Enjoy.

:Titus Andronicus – Fatal Flaw:  Here’s another raucous good time from the one and only Titus Andronicus.  If this track doesn’t make you want to go wild, you should seek help immediately.  The Most Lamentable Tragedy is due out July 28 via Merge.  See them on September 20 at Red 7.

:Widowspeak – Girls:  This new Widowspeak single is one of the more pleasant things I’ve heard in 2015.  I love Molly Hamilton’s inviting vocal work and the meandering arrangement is delightful.  All Yours is due out September 4 via Captured Tracks.

:Lower Dens  – Maneater (Hall & Oates Cover):  For fun (I assume), Lower Dens performed this Hall & Oates cover live during a recent Sirius XMU session.  The original will always be my favorite version, but I definitely dig the moody twist that’s been applied here.

:Mas Ysa – Gun (Featuring Nicole Miglis):  This powerful duet with Nicole Miglis (of Hundred Waters) is the latest and greatest effort from Thomas Arsenault (aka Mas Ysa).  I’m impatiently waiting for the day I can take his debut album and devour it with a good pair of headphones.  Seraph is due out July 24 via Downtown Records.  See him July 17 at Red 7.

:Chelsea Wolfe – Carrion Flowers:  Unsurprisingly, I’m all about this crunchy, haunting wall of sound from Chelsea Wolfe.  There’s something about her weirdness that always pulls me in.  Abyss is due out August 7 via Sargent House.  See her September 19 at the Mohawk.

Quickdraw: Courtney Barnett, The King Khan And BBQ Show, Quarterbacks, Lower Dens, Fred Thomas

Music!  Enjoy.

:Courtney Barnett – Pedestrian At Best:  I can’t stop listening to this whip-smart new one from Courtney Barnett.  I won’t at all be surprised if her upcoming album ends up dominating me.  Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit Out will be released on March 24 via Mom + Pop.

:The King Khan And BBQ Show – Illuminations:  Whenever a King Khan And The BBQ Show press release pops up in my inbox, I get excited.  Sure, there’s no information in these emails that’s actually useful, but they’re funny and tend to contain really jangly, awesome tunes.  Bad News Boys is due out February 24 via In The Red.

:Quarterbacks – Knicks:  I think I’m finally ready to jump on Quarterbacks‘ bandwagon, and it’s all because of this 55 second track.  It just oozes charm.  The band’s self titled album is due out February 10 via Team Love/Double Whammy.

:Lower Dens – To Die In L.A.:  Before you hit play on this Lower Dens track, slap on some headphones.  It’s a wonderfully produced effort, and you should lets its various layers exclusively fill your head.  Escape From Evil will be released on March 31 via Ribbon Music.

:Fred Thomas – Bad Blood:  Fred Thomas (from Saturday Looks Good To Me) just signed to Polyvinyl.  This first single off of his solo debut is rambly as hell and perhaps a bit pretentious, but I dig it.  All Are Saved is due out April 7.
