Here’s a rundown of the albums available online and in record stores today:
- Oasis, Dig Out Your Soul
Vote yes for Noel Gallagher as rock’s benevolent despot.
- Deerhoof, Offend Maggie
The world’s most lovably baffling art rockers — still lovable, baffling.
Listen to “Offend Maggie”
- The Pretenders, Break Up the Concrete
Rock’s pissy goddess takes off the stilettos and gets her feet dirty.
Listen to “Boots Of Chinese Plastic”
- The Streets, Everything Is Borrowed
Spit out by fame game, the MC muses maturely.
Listen to “The Escapist”
- Marnie Stern, This Is It and I Am It and You Are It and So Is That and He Is It and She Is It… (Kill Rock Stars)
Everything that sane people hate about music, executed meticulously.
- Tindersticks, The Hungry Saw
Luckless lotharios seduce suavely, then suddenly lose mojo.
