New Releases Tuesday - 8/8

Unless you're an Ani DiFranco fan, another really slow week as far as new releases go. La Rocca - The Truth (Dangerbird) I guess I had always discounted these guys as just another generic American indie rock band, but it turns out they're actually from the U.K.(though L.A. has become their adopted home). Also, once you skip through their gratuitous rawk/indie pop anthems, they actually show a bit of personality and originality as you dig deeper on this debut record. Not a genius record by any means, but something worth a second listen on a slow week. Download: La Rocca - "The Life" (MP3) The Cure - Head on the Door [Deluxe Edition] (Rhino) The Cure - Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me [Deluxe Edition] (Rhino) The Cure Top [Deluxe Edition] (Rhino) Rhino continues their "deluxe" reissues of classic Cure releases, remastering the original tracks and including an extensive second disc for each featuring outtakes and rarities. Not recommended for the casual fan who once owned a used copy of Staring At the Sea in college. Download: The Cure - "In Between Days" (MP3)

The new Matthew Friedberger and the new Comets on Fire were also released today. Not that either of them seem to be anything wonderful.

we heard that new friedberger album in reckless on tues night and it was terrible. the vocals were mixed really low, there were way to many sounds going on at once which really detered from the songs. there was a bass-line in the song that was playing that seemed completely lifted from the the lips yoshimi album. i do like the fiery furnaces stuff a lot (even rehearsing my chior) so this was a huge dissapointment.

this was from a a few weeks ago i think but the newest album from the cut chemist has been in heavy rotation here. its mostly instrumental hip-hop tracks/scratches/mixing with 2 tracks that have guest mcees.
