New Releases Tuesday

Welcome to New Releases Tuesday on WERS. Every Tuesday we’ll take a look around the music scene and bring you updates on, you guessed it, the new albums coming out this week.

Dinosaur Jr, I Bet On Sky - New England natives, Dinosaur Jr. are back with their tenth studio album, I Bet On Sky. The alternative band split in 1997 but reunited in 2005. I Bet On Sky is their third record since reuniting. The album was first released in the United Kingdom five days ago, on September 13th, but drops in the US today. It features ten tracks including the song, “Watch The Corners” for which there is a music video.

Band Of Horses, Mirage Rock – Band of Horses, the indie rock band from Seattle, Washington released their fourth record, Mirage Rock, today. The new album was produced by Glyn Johns—the English Producer known for his work with artists such as Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and the Band, among others—and is their fourth studio album. Though Mirage Rock was just released today it has been available for streaming on the band’s Soundcloud since September 10th.

Grizzly Bear, ShieldsShields, the fourth album from Brooklyn rockers, Grizzly Bear, dropped today. Shields comes after a six-month hiatus taken by the band after touring extensively to promote their third record, Veckatimist. Grizzly Bear initially went to Texas to record Shields but after recording twelve tracks they scrapped the entire Texas session and started over in both New York and on Cape Cod.

The Killers, Battle Born – After three and a half years, and a Brandon Flowers solo project the Killers have returned with their fourth studio album, Battle Born. The name of the record comes from the phrase featured on the flag of their home state of Nevada as well as the name of the studio where the majority of the album was recorded.

Aimee Man, Charmer – Singer-songwriter, guitarist and bassist Aimee Mann’s eighth and latest record, Charmer, dropped today. Mann has said that the music on the album is highly influenced by the pop music of the 60’s and 70’s. Paul Bryan, Mann’s Bassist, produced Charmer, and the album also features a duet with James Mercer of The Shins.
