New Music in Stores Today

posted by on April 29 at 12:12 PM

It’s Tuesday, the day new records appear in record stores. Brian Cook already gave you a couple recommendations, here’s a rundown of what else you’ll find on the shelves:

Portishead Third

In this week’s paper, a bunch of writers (Miranda July, Sherman Alexie, Charles Mudede, Stephen Elliott, Grant Cogswell, Laura Albert, etc.) shared their stories of gettin’ it on to Portishead.

There was a time when we were at it like bunnies. The “modern rock” station played Portishead nonstop. It was the time of roommates and thin walls, and radios turned up to mask. And Portishead were more to mood than the Sundays (too cute) or My Bloody Valentine (too noisy) or Blur (charming beat and accents become annoying during sex, like someone playing with your nipple post orgasm). Portishead were a good indicator that I was knocked up. Suddenly I could not bear that repeating dunda-dah dun-dun. Morning sickness and Portishead were one. Trying to quickly twist the radio knob away from the sound was like trying to scratch an itch while hang gliding. My arm was stretched out as if in petition, my fingers grazing the globular button, when something came shooting out of me, an ooze of warm spittle that bubbled over my swollen belly as the song played on. Now they are back and my son is a 10-year-old drummer. Long may they both play on. LAURA ALBERT

Click here to see the new video for the first single, “Machine Gun.” Don’t forget to pop a breath mint.

That Madonna video could quite possibly be the worst thing I've ever seen. It makes me embarrassed for her. Shit sandwich.

That Jamie Lidell video is great. I'm warming to the album, although I wish it had more of his old, weirdo touch.

That Madonna song is just useless, though.

Don't forget the Roots "Falling Down" album. The remember being impressed with Jamie Lidell when his multiply album came out. I heard his new shit is dope too.

New Boris today too!!!

I'm so stoked to hear the US version of the album. Supposedly it's substantially different than the the Japanese version I downloaded forever ago.

My bad, The Roots album is called "Rising Down".

Ai yi yi, Madonna looked haggard. The flesh toned body suit made me want to gag. Not a good way to seem young.
