A few words on a short list of new releases.

 

Body/Head The Switch

This one ticks off a specific set of boxes: indie legend (Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth collaborating with Bill Nace), niche genre (experimental guitar rock), beloved label (Matador Records). If those are the types of boxes you like having ticked off, this one’s for you.

 

Dirty Projectors Lamp Lit Prose

As with any Dirty Projectors release, the focus is on who David Longstreth’s co-conspirators are this time around. Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend, Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes, Empress Of, Syd, Amber Mark, and Dear Nora all factor into this one.

 

Wet Still Run

If you’ve been listening to The Oedipus Project on Saturday mornings at 10, you’ve heard the two singles “Softens” and “There’s A Reason.” Now you can hear the rest of the album from the Brooklyn act, their second on Columbia Records.
