i'll start with this.

Daughters Of The Sun - Ghost With Chains

Long-running Twin Cities horsepower trio Daughters Of The Sun have been subtly chugging out their faded-tattoo spirit-in-the-sky psych exhaust for at least half a decade now but we didn’t catch the drift till March ’09, when we got to witness a packed post-midnight smoke-soaked Minneapolis loft set and waved our lighter with the masses. Ghost With Chains is their third official full-length (not including some EPs and a killer split) and it’s as beautifully moon-burnt and highway-swept as anything they’ve done. Recorded in August of ’09 at Nicollet Park, the LP’s seven songs swerve from spectral Sturgis road-burners (“Hexagram,” “Bell Of The Barrier”) to lower-keyed percussion meditationals (“Busted Realm,” “Ghost With Chains”), spiced with the occasional earth-toned ghost drone piece or floating flower acoustic mantra-ballad. The magic is, it all works. The D.O.T.S. gang co-run a tape label, Never Ender, and each helm their own exile-consciousness solo project (Camden, Elven Thief, Wavepool), so roots run deep. Unbreak the Chains and scope ‘em on tour next time they pass through yr local badlands. Black vinyl LPs in jackets with artwork by Oakley Tapioca, plus a full-color pro-printed insert. Edition of 490.

Here are two I've really been enjoying that were released in January:


This is Dan Bejar's (The New Pornographers) solo project. I'm not a huge Pornographers fan, but the lyrics / sound of this album is amazing. Those loving The Cure / Japan sounding guitar will like this.
 











 


By Vish KhannaAt various points in their 30-year career, the Ex could easily lay claim to being the most explosive live band in the world and, on this, their 123rd release, new singer Arnold de Boer proves to be a worthy maestro for their brilliant fireworks display. Catch My Shoe arrives after the Dutch band engaged in a notable collaboration with Ethiopia's obscure, but powerful, jazz artist Getatchew Mekurya and, as such, their idiosyncratic ability to swing with great force has been heightened. On "Cold Weather is Back," the musical tension builds and builds, with Katherina Bornefeld hammering out an hypnotic drum beat, Terrie Hessels and Andy Moor choking unearthly pitches from their baritone guitars, and de Boer crying out to us from the future that "No one has computers anymore," before the song propels itself headlong to a glorious finish. Recorded sparsely by Steve Albini, Catch My Shoe showcases the Ex in a new phase, but its intensity is only deeper.
(Ex)

These guys are fantastic. I am pretty friendly with them; great guys with great taste. They keep getting better all the time.

The new Gay Beast LP on Skin Graft is excellent as well.

Yeah, it's out. Took a bunch to Chicago Independent for wider distribution a couple of weeks ago. I think Burning World has them for sale in Europe as well. You can get it online at the mutant music site or on discogs from me or Burning World.
PM me for details on how to get one of the very last copies (I'm talking like two copies) of the first one.
Shipping costs might equal out the slightly higher price from Burning World vs. buying from us here in the USA.

i think it's 2010, but the new Peaking Lights lp "936" definitely belongs in this thread...

Yuck's album is pretty great

 


It kind of draws on a lot of sounds from the 90's. Quite heavily influence by bands such as Pavement and Dinosaur JR. It's not particularly new buts it is a nice record to listen to.

Oh yes. Who could resist the lure of a latter-day Rush LP with a "Steampunk" concept?

I think it's fair to say that 'me' would be an accurate answer to that question. Although I don't mind rush, I'm having none of this steampunk bollocks.
