It's been a rough month so far and I can't imagine a better way to get through the rest of the month with a series of great releases. Starting things off right is that time tested group Sonic Youth with another side winding album called, "The Eternal". After tuning into Pitchfork.com for a little background on the album its good to know Sonic Youth still has the drive and desire to produce some of the most avante gard rock out their. Plan on rocking out, "Sonic Trixster" should do the trick.
Next on the musical agenda is the fifth release from Mars Volta, "Octahedron". After only a year since the last Mars Volta release it seems like Omar and Cedric have seemed to produce another rockus electric filled majesty of tunes. If the cover is any testament of what is in store for fans I have no doubt what we have alot to look (or listen forward) to.
Last and certainly not least is Wilco's, "Wilco (the album)". Personally, I'm kinda torn between what to think or hear. A album full of self absorbed references back to the band in the form of a title and lead song can only leave me a little hesitant. But, after listening to the entire album via the WilcoWorld.net website I'm happy to say that just isn't the case. The album is reminiscent of some of the earlier studio albums like "SummerTeeth" and "Being There". Needless to say, this could possibly be a great sunny day album to kick start listeners to the end of summer.
Enjoy the tunes and here are a list of Notable Numbers currently in play:
