New Releases Tuesday (9/20)

Lichens - The Psychic Nature of Being (Kranky) First solo release from 90 Day Men bassist and TV on the Radio collaborator Robert Lowe. According to the bio from Kranky, The Psychic Nature of Being was recorded as a one-time improvisation without overdubbing, and the three tracks on the release "reveal and extend mesmeric Lichens live performances." Mr. Kranky also gushes, "Lowe mutates and extends his singing as he adds acoustic and electric guitars and percussion in layers that accent the vocal drones." You can check out Lowe at the opening night festivities of The Wire's Adventures in Modern Music this Wednesday at The Bottle. He'll be performing as part of a newly formed experimental trio with Hisham Bharoocha of Black Dice and Tyondai Braxton of Battles. Also out today... American Analog Set - Set Free (Arts & Crafts) Boduf Songs - s/t (Kranky) Broadcast - Tender Buttons (Warp) Echo & The Bunnymen - Siberia [new material, not a reissue!] (Cooking Vinyl) Le Tigre - This Island Remixes (Chicks on Speed) Mr. Oizo - Mustache(Half a Scissor) (Mute) Nada Surf - The Weight is a Gift (Barsuk)

He's also the sound guy at the Empty Bottle. I saw him biking down my street the other day. I had no idea he was responsible for Lichens.
