New Releases: July 5, 2005

Brakes, Give Blood (Rough Trade)
This indie supergroup (made up of members of British Sea Power, Tenderfoot, and Electric Soft Parade) mix it up with a blend of punk, pop, and new wave with a dash of irreverence. You can order the import version now; a U.S. release is expected in September.

Missy Elliott, The Cookbook (The Gold Mind/Atlantic)
Rap’s reigning artist cum producer is back with her sixth full-length album. With help from crunk darling Ciara, The Cookbook is on fire (read review).

Sufjan Stevens, Illinois (Asthmatic Kitty)
Pretty folk revival from Middle America. Nobody rocks the banjo like Sufjan on Illinois. Sadly, the album is currently on hold due to a legal scuffle over the album cover.
Amazon | iTunes

R. Kelly, TP3 Reloaded (Jive)
And we quoth, from R. Kelly’s opus, “Sex in the Kitchen”: “Girl, I’m ready to toss your salad.” The bard speaks for himself.
