|No 'Vember Like November|
Albums I'm excited for in November. Pretty sparse pickin's, but that's okay. More leftover cash for Christmas. That said, I'm sure I'm missing a few here, so feel free to shout out what I've overlooked in the comments.
The Direction of Last Things
The first song released from this was pretty dang great, and I've yet to really be let down by these guys, so hopefully the rest is up to snuff.
To quote Jonah Ray, "Ooooooooh, dat Jazz!"

I was a little late to the game on French Ghetto, but that album's grown and grown and grown on me, like a tumor. But a benign one. That sings and plays a dynamite guitar.
|4||Cee Lo Green|
Although Mr. Green himself may continue to reveal new loathsome aspects of his personality whenever he makes the mistake of giving an interview, hot damn if I'm not still a sucker for the man's music. Hopefully he tones down the misogyny this go-round.
|5||Swallow the Sun|
Songs From The North I, II & III
The fact that this is a three-disc behemoth of what'll surely be, at their shortest, 10-minute songs, really helps make the fact that this month is so lacking overall in (what I'd consider) exciting new releases more palatable.
Horses Galloping on Sailboats
So I honestly had forgotten all about this band, let alone their long-fabled follow-up to the flippin' terrific Set Sail the Prairie, and it was only by virtue of stumbling on a random soundoff on this site that called it all back to mind. Beyond that, no idea when this is actually slated for formal release, but the digital version's up now, so hopefully a physical release is set to follow shortly.
|Can't wait for Intronaut, I'm hoping it rips. I'm intrigued about the Swallow the Sun - they pulled off Plague of Butterflies but this is a pretty different beast. Might be a heavy listen, but I'm hoping for good shit.|
