On the radar

A few upcoming releases of note...

Annie Clark (of Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan's touring band) is St. Vincent. She has been the recipient of considerable blog love for a while and it's just been revealed that her debut, Marry Me, is due in July. Her one-sheet describes her music as "cinematic pop," and that seems fitting. It is an amalgam of numerous styles of American music -- rock, folk, jazz, and pop. Gorilla vs. Bear reports that the full-length is a stunner, and I'm looking forward to hearing it.

St. Vincent - Now Now

St. Vincent is currently on tour with John Vanderslice.

Merge Records will release the third full-length album from The Rosebuds, Night of the Furies, tomorrow (April 10). The track they've released is somewhere between classic disco and the moody post-punk so prevalent the past few years. I'd be interested in further reports from those who have heard the entire release.

The Rosebuds - Get Up Get Out

For the bargain hunters, C&T's friends at Joe Rockhead are offering Night of the Furies for $8.98.

Richard Swift releases the first single from his Dressed Up for the Letdown, "Kisses for the Misses," on May 22. It's a 7" of song in question, a whimsical piano-driven pop tune somewhere on the spectrum between Elvis Costello and Rufus Wainwright.

Here is the A-side, along with one of the two B-side tracks:

Richard Swift - Kisses for the Misses
Richard Swift - Paisley Park

Both releases are available from Secretly Canadian.

The Rosebuds' album is probably now my favorite release so far this year. From that one track you have it's safe to assume that it's just full of dance-type pop songs (which is true), but there's a nice variety of tracks so u should definitely check out the whole thing.

Glad to hear that as I love them and was sorry they could not play here recently. They have rescheduled, though!
