A completely and utterly random list.
Pink Mink – S/T (Little Veronica)
An album that is just now getting national release. It would be in your best interest to find it.
Avengers – The Pink Album (CD Presents)
Do you really need me to tell you how great this is?
The Chrome Cranks – Ain’t No Lies In Blood (Bang!)
Comeback albums usually suck. Not this one. Not one bit.
Lightning Bolt – “I Found A Ring In My Ear,” (Bandcamp)
A 20-minute jam that never really meanders or annoys.
The Darkness – Permission To Land (Atlantic)
The Darkness – One Way Ticket To Hell…And Back (Atlantic)
Ceremony – Zoo (Matador)
Chicago Compilation (Twosyllable)
Contains great Chicago acts Fielded and the incomparable Angel Olsen. Her song, In The Morning is worth getting this alone.
Bully In The Hallway – Crooks And Their Castles (Self-Released)
Seriously, buy this already.
Lacuna Coil – Dark Adrenaline (Century Media)
Poor first impression is giving way as there are several really good tracks. A much better album than their previous two.
