New Music Releases ~ February 8, 2011

I highly recommend a band with one of the oddest sounding names in quite a while (nothing on 10,000 Maniacs)...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead with 'Tao of the Dead,' Cut Copy with their effort 'Zonoscope,' Fionn Regan's 'Shadow of an Empire' (on vinyl), the self-titled LP from James Blake, Motorhead's 'The World Is Yours' and Okkervil River with 'Mermaid.'

Vinyl releases and reissues include Black Sabbath's 'Volume 4,' Bauhaus with 'Crackle,' the Eagles 'Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975' two reissues from Sparklehorse 'Good Morning Spider' and 'Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot' and new vinyl from Wires Under Tension ('Light Science') and Woodsman's latest effort 'Rare Forms,' also on vinyl. Also Spiritualized is reissuing 'Lazer Guided Melodies' and 'Pure Phase' on vinyl.
