New Releases Tuesday (9/6)
Richard Hawley - Coles Corner (Mute) Pulp touring guitarist, veteran session man and former Longpigs member releases his fourth solo disc. The London Telegraph sez: This is classic-sounding stuff. "Darlin' Wait For Me" is a delicate, wee hours lament that explains why Hawley has been compared to Roy Orbison many a time. He stands shoulder to shoulder, and soul to tortured soul, with Scott Walker on The Ocean...Named after a long-demolished meeting place for generations of Sheffield courting couples, Cole's Corner is an album full of romance, poetry, heartache and memory. A wonderful, beautiful achievement.
Black Dice - Broken Ear Record (DFA/Astralwerks) Third full-length and major label debut for Brooklyn noisy experimentalists Black Dice. They'll be returning to Chicago to blow your mind with their sonic soundscapes on September 23 at Abbey Pub.
