New Music Tuesday: 9 Records You Need To Know About Now

The VaccinesWhat Did You Expect From The Vaccines? – Brilliant debut from the London born group falls somewhere between The Ramones and The Jesus and Mary Chain. My pick for power pop album of the year. Incredibly catchy songs and a good reason to get excited about music again. (available on vinyl)

My Morning Jacket Circuital –For six weeks, leading up to April 12 2011, the band released free downloads of tracks recorded at their shows at New York’s Terminal 5 in October 2010. The final free download was the new album’s title track. Fun Fact: “Outta My System” is a rejected musical idea that Jim James wrote for Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem in the upcoming Muppets film. Produced by Jim James & Tucker Martine (available on vinyl)

Death Cab For Cutie Codes and Keys – The band’s seventh studio album. Ben Gibbard and Nick Harmer have both been quoted as saying that the album will be “a much less guitar-centric album than we’ve ever made before. Check out the video below that was shot in only one take. (available on vinyl)

Flogging Molly – Speed of Darkness The seven-piece powerhouse known for their raucous shows and unique, energetic sound that is both feverishly punk and traditionally Irish. (available on vinyl)

The Melvins – Sugar Daddy Live – Recorded at The Busta- Guts Club in Downey, CA with the majority of the tracks coming from the last three stuido albums.[

Robert Pollard – Lord of the Birdcage – The 17th full-length solo studio album released by the leader and creative force behind Guided by Voices. (available on vinyl).

Eddie Vedder – Ukalele Songs – Eddie Vedder makes this seemingly odd match up work gracefully. Get ready as droves of Pearl Jam fans start googling “Ukalele lessons”. Produced by Eddie Vedder, guests include Cat Power’s Chan Marshall, Swell Season/ Frames frontman Glen Hansard.

Ozzy Osbourne – Blizzard of Ozz (Legacy Edition) – Ozzy’s best selling album to date gets a much needed makeover. In 1986, bassist Bob Daisley and drummer Lee Kerslake sued Osbourne for unpaid royalties, eventually winning songwriting credits on Blizzard of Ozz. The 2002 reissue saw the replacement of the original bass and drum tracks of Daisley and Kerslake with new ones by Osbourne’s then-current drummer Mike Bordin and bassist Robert Trujillo. Osbourne’s wife and manager, Sharon, explained the re-recordings in a press conference: “Because of Daisley and Kerslake’s abusive and unjust behaviour, Ozzy wanted to remove them from these recordings. Now the original tracks are back and remastered along with a second disc containing the unreleased Ozzy Live.

Black Stone Cherry Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea – Need a birthday gift for your brother in law who drives an Iroc-Z and thinks his finest days were during hight school? Here you go. Produced by Howard Benson
