Here’s a list of major new releases for the week of June 9, 2017.  Please feel free to request reviews for any of the following albums from staff or contributors.  As our staff post reviews of these albums, links will appear below the art work so that you can read about the release, see how we scored it, and more.


Featured Release: Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dressner, Nico Muhly, and James McAlister – “Planetarium”

Planetarium

Genre: Indie/Electronic/Experimental // Label: 4AD

Background:

In 2013, Sufjan Stevens joined up with Nico Muhly, James McAlister, and The National’s Bryce Dressner to create a composition thematically centered around our solar system (I guess he is too big for states now).  To date only performed in a live setting (the piece was debuted at Brooklyn Academy of Music over a multi-night span), it is finally being released as an official recording on June 9 via 4AD.  It’s pretty much the most hipster thing ever.

Listen to the project’s single “Mercury”:

Way too early for this, but life's busy and the choice was now or not at all. Was very tempted to make Nickelback the featured release but thought better of it.

What have I heard this week? The Anathema album is a disappointment, The Birthday Massacre album takes a few listens to appreciate because it's so low-key, The Progenie Terrestre Pura album is actually pretty cool but a bit aimless, and The Rise Against album is somewhere between Appeal to Reason and Endgame in quality (for whatever that's worth).

Fuck however Nickeblack gonna be out next week ;'(

dbizzles

Kids Rakhis are the most delighted items which are one’s heartiest delights. Kids Rakhis consists of many cartoon characters like, Batman, Winnie the Pooh, Chota Bheem, Sinchan and many others. Kida Rakhis are decorated with varieties of threads, designer balls to make this item look eye-catching, therefore people Send Kids Rakhi to India to make the minds of the kids very happy. Days before Raksha Bandhan Rakhis are sent to all brothers who stays within India or abroad. Rakhis are the most heart throbbing items which are delivered to the sisters residing in India, therefore people stress on Rakhi Return Gifts for Sisters to India.
