New Releases Tuesday (8/16)

Sigur Ros - Sæglópur (Geffen) First domestic single from the Icelandic band's forthcoming album, Takk, due out on September 13. Don't go looking for this on a 45 or CD single, this is a download-only release available at such sites as iTunes. Preview the track for free here. New to the band?? Download some of their older material for free via the band's website. Idlewild - Warnings/Promises (Capitol) This was supposed to be available domestically today, but as Shivy Shiv from woxy.com points out, Amazon now lists the release date as September 6? Couldn't find any news about its delay, but here's what Captiol says about the new album: Warnings/Promises is the band's first album to be written with a new lineup featuring bassist Gavin Fox and longtime touring guitarist Allan Stewart, and its songs, although clearly coming from Idlewild, have become broader, richer and more ambitious. Perhaps not a coincidence, Sept. 6 is also when Idlewild kicks off their U.S. tour, which will be making a stop at Metro on Sept. 22. Malcom Middleton - Into the Woods (Chemikal Underground) Speaking of Scottish rockers...this is the second solo album from the frontman of Arab Strap. Not recommended if you like happy, upbeat music. ALSO... Cowboy Junkies - Early 21st Century Blues (Zoe) Madness - The Dangermen Sessions, Vol. 1 (V2) The Ramones - Weird Tales of the Ramones [Box Set] (Rhino) The Stooges - The Stooges [Deluxe Reissue] (Rhino) Various Artists - Luaka Bop Remix (Luaka Bop)
