April 28 2013 Drop Box Notes


A little early this month, and as always I will update these Drop Box Notes as I find time and energy. There is (I hope as always) some terrific new stuff to go along with last month’s releases.

As I telegraphed in an earlier post, the new Del Lords record is in the Drop Box for those of you who failed to pick it up earlier (#35). I think there is a pretty good mix of old and new in this months batch of releases with Big Star‘s Record Store Day limited release Nothing Can Hurt Me, a new Depeche Mode record ( that is actually good and an interesting listen), a new reformed Fall Out Boy LP which traverses some new areas while still sounding like pre-breakup FOB, and Grapes of Wrath (who were a favorite of mine in the late 80s and early 90s and who are also reformed and back with a new release ( I saw them open for Guadalcanal Diary at the Green Door in Claremont CA).   Some of the newer artists you might recognize because they previously were in the drop box are Kurt Vile, the Thermals and Thee Oh Sees and who continue to release exciting new music.

Finally, I’d like to think that the music added here is pretty diverse covering the gambit from pop – folk – singer-songwriter- alt-country- rock – indie- electronic and punk, but if there is something you are truly seeking please leave a reply or drop a note in the drop box and I’ll seek it out.
