Ahh, nothing's better than an nice summer record release! That actually doesn't really make any sense, but here are a few new records and reissues coming out this summer. As always, if there is anything we've missed (surely), please comment below!
Aesop Rock: Skelethon (Rhymespace) July 10th
Underground Rap pioneer, Aesop Rock, is set to release his newest album FIVE years since his last one. Guest spots include Kimya Dawson, Rob Sonic, DJ Big Wiz and others. Pretty excited to hear what Aesop's been up to lately.
It's not quite a year away, but the performers for next year’s “All Tomorrow’s Parties” festival in Monticello, NY, on September 3-5 (Labor Day week-end) have been officially announced…at least for the first day.
Following a trend that is quickly becoming a popular, albeit lazy, occurrence in live concerts, the first day of the festival will feature bands playing some of their more popular albums in their entirety. Day one headliners, Iggy and the Stooges, will be playing all the tracks from their classic noise-punk album Raw Power. The three main supporting acts, Mudhoney, The Scientists, and reunited Sleep, will also be performing Superfuzz Bigmuff, Blood Red River, and Holy Mountain, respectively. This replaying of band’s classic albums is part of a series titled “Don’t Look Back.”
