If You Like

The Weakerthans or The Mountain Goats you need to listen to these two gems released last week.
1Jim Bryson and The Weakerthans
The Falcon Lake Incident

This album is like The Weakerthans instrumental with someone else on vocals. Oh wait, that's exactly what it is. The guitar tone isn't EXACTLY the same, but it's similar and it gives me that warm, fuzzy, everything-is-right-in-the-world feeling that every Weakerthans album does. Bryson does a fantastic job on vocals. He's unassuming yet expressive, and his delicate voice is perfect for some of the softer tracks on the album ("Constellation," "Anything and All"). Seriously if you like The Weakerthans you neeeeed this.
2The Extra Lens

John Darnielle + Franklin Bruno. Essentially this sounds like another Mountain Goats record (which is good, because I haven't had my fix yet this year) with a few alterations from Bruno. Instrument arrangements are interesting as shit, and Bruno even tries to harmonize with Darnielle, which you and I both know is impossible but it somehow works. I haven't sunk my teeth into the lyrics yet, but it's Darnielle so you know they rule. Again, if you like Darnielle (looking at you Adam Thomas) you should get your hands on this.
