Edward SharpeWelcome 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.

EDWARD SHARPE & THE MAGNETIC ZEROES, EDWARD SHARPE & THE MAGNETIC ZEROES

This is the third album release for Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes. Some of this third album was actually made during the recording of their 2012 album, Here.  Produced by frontman Alex Ebert the album will be released today in North America and July 29 internationally by Vagrant Records and Rough Trade Records. Ebert said that “These songs mean everything to me…”

F*** BUTTONS, SLOW FOCUS

Slow Focus is the long awaited follow up to the 2009 release Tarot Sport. The two piece electronic group from Bristol decided to produce their own album this time around and it turned out to be the right decision. Slow Focus really has Andrew Hung and Benjamin John Power coming into their own sound and their own style.

GOGOL BORDELLO, PURE VIDA CONSPIRACY

The sixth album from the gypsy punk band hailing from the lower east side of Manhattan. Having an eclectic mix of eastern european and celtic folk, reggae, and classic rock & roll, Pure Vida Conspiracy is a great return for Gogol Bordello after a three year album hiatus. Accordions, violins, drums, guitars, and an extremely entertaining frontman in the form of Eugene Hütz all come together to make Gogol Bordello one of the most creative and unique bands out there.
