I recommend two albums that are due out April 11th
Birdmonster: No Midnight
Their three song EP was reminiscent of Modest Mouse in a lot of ways and while that influence is still apparent, you will no longer think of them as a Modest Mouse tribute band (that is, if you ever did). You can check out a few songs at www.myspace.com/birdmonster
where you can also pre-order the album for $10. Very well done indie rock.
Josh Ritter: Animal Years
I don't think I've gotten any negative feedback from the people on this site who have streamed his new album. Rohan posted a link to where you can stream Animal Years (it's also below). If you're a fan of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Johnny Cash, Nick Drake should probably listen to this. http://www.flashenhanced.com/joshritter/
Great Lake Swimmers: Bodies and Minds
I've heard comparisons made to Iron & Wine, which was enough to get me to take a listen.
Band of Horses: Everything All The Time
I've waited for this album since they signed to Sup Pop and toured with Iron & Wine. Thankfully, it didn't disappoint. My favorite release to be released so far this year. Another damn fine indie rock record. Comparisons have been made to My Morning Jacket, Neil Young, and The Shins to a lesser extent.
Go listen to Josh Ritter & Birdmonster right now. :)
