Summer / Early Fall 2012 New Release Schedule

As I've done a couple of times now, here's a list of some of the new releases coming out during the next few months.  I've added a few notes.  Hope there's at least a few you're looking forward to over the coming months.  -- Allen 



* Jimmy Cliff - Rebirth
* Matisyahu - Spark Seeker
* Alberta Cross - Songs of Patience - Check out their live performance at they recorded before their show last week!
* Missy Higgins - Ol' Razzle Dazzle
* Susanna Hoffs - Someday
* Soul Asylum - Delayed Reaction - I'm hearing rumors this is better than the weaker releases they've had over the past 15 years?  Has it been that long?
* 10 Years - Minus the Machine
* John Frusciante - EP
* Milo Greene - S/T
* Marc Berger - Ride
* Saving Abel - Bringing Down the Giant

* The Gaslight Anthem - Handwritten - Looking forward to this New Jersey band's 3rd album.
* Passion Pit - Gossamer - Also looking forward to this one.  They're a little outside of my sweet spot but their songs are so catchy, I'm willing to let it slide.  :)
* The Antlers - Undersea
* Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Now Here's My Plan EP
* Foals - Tapes
* Sugar - Copper Blue (Deluxe.) and File Under: Easy Listening (Deluxe.) - I'm super excited about these.  I'm probably in a big minority when I say that I thought Sugar was the best Bob Mould band.  Those Husker Du albums never did much for me.  Although I will say that the fidelity on those albums was always a deterrant to my enjoyment.

* Bob Dylan - Tempest - A new album from Mr. Dylan.  As mentioned above, he's touring with Mark Knopfler later this fall.
* The Avett Brothers - The Carpenter - Love them.  Haven't heard a note yet but I and Love and You was one of my favorite releases in 2009.  They'll be at the Fox in September.   A far cry from some of their early shows in St. Louis.  I heard them for the first time at the Sheldon ushering as a volunteer for KDHX.  How can you not love a station that brings in the Avetts to the Sheldon?
* Dave Matthews Band - Away from the World
* Chris Robinson Brotherhood   The Magic Door
* St. Vincent and David Byrne - Love this Giant
* Amanda Palmer - Theatre is Evil
* Cat Power - Sun - Another quiet artist who I'm looking forward to her new release.

* Kathy Mattea - Calling Me Home
* Tina Dico   Where Do You Go to Disappear?
* Seapony - Falling
* Sea Wolf - Old World Romance
* Field Report - S/T - I've played the song "Fergus Falls" on my show and it's on the short list for my song of the year.  I hope the album can live up to the opening single.

* The XX   Coexist - It's been about 3 years but their debut was a stunner.

* Chris Isaak - Beyond the Sun (Deluxe.)

Bill, I haven't heard a date yet other than 2012. I also found out it will be called Faster than Turtles. Stay tuned. I'm sure I'll be doing another one of these by early fall.
